Add note on Mozilla 1.0 compatibility

    1: <h2>Changes targetted at a 0.4 release</h2>
    2: <ul>
    3:     <li>New Delete Annotation functionality
    4:     <li>New Edit Annotation functionality
    5:     <li>Icons in the document now load the annotation body when selected
    6:     <li>Icons now optionally inserted in the body using XBL (therefore they
    7:     don't change the DOM and should not disrupt scripts or stylesheets)
    8:     <li>New Sidebar implementation in XUL giving a cleaner and more functional
    9:     user interface
   10:     <li>New HTML editor window for creating annotations (instead of a
   11:     plain-text entry area)
   12:     <li>Split preferences across three (two?) panels
   13:     <li>Significantly refactored code for better maintainability and
   14:     extensibility
   15:     <li>Following code tidy-up, split up server-handling code into RemoteServer
   16:     and BookmarkletServer (with LocalServer planned for a future version)
   17: </ul>

   19: <h2>Aims</h2>
   20: 
   21: <p>Here are some aims of the Annozilla project.
   22: 
   23: <h3>Keep up with Mozilla releases</h3>
   24: <p>The 0.3.4 release brings Annozilla up to date with Mozilla 1.0. All future
   25: releases should be usable with Mozilla 1.0.</p>
   26: 
   27: <h3>Interopability with Amaya</h3>
   28: 
   29: <p>Annozilla should support all annotation features which Amaya supports. In
   30: particular:</p>
   31: 
   32: <h4>Any annotation posted by Amaya should be readable with Annozilla</h4>
   33: <p>Currently Annozilla does not achieve this: Amaya can produce XPointers which
   34: Annozilla cannot interpret. Doug Daniels has recently provided me with a patch
   35: for improved XPointer support; I hope to include this in a 0.4 release in
   36: February/March.</p>
   37: <p>The annotation schema has also had facilities added recently to allow
   38: Replies to annotations; Annozilla does not support this.</p>
   39: 
   40: <h4>All annotation facilities provided by Amaya should be provided</h4>
   41: <p>In addition to the new Reply capability, Annozilla does not provide a way of
   42: <ul>
   43: <li>deleting
   44: <li>editing
   45: <li>changing the type
   46: </ul>
   47: of annotations. Some of these may be included in a 0.4 or 0.5 release.</p>
   48: 
   49: <p>There have also been requests for Annozilla to interface with multiple
   50: servers, or to be able to keep annotations in a local file. These will be
   51: considered.</p>
