Aims

Here are some aims of the Annozilla project.

Keep up with Mozilla releases

Currently Annozilla is lagging behind; Annozilla 0.3 does not work with Mozilla 0.9.6+, due to changes in interfaces and XUL. I hope to release 0.3.1 by the end of January 2002 addressing all these issues.

Interopability with Amaya

Annozilla should support all annotation features which Amaya supports. In particular:

Any annotation posted by Amaya should be readable with Annozilla

Currently Annozilla does not achieve this: Amaya can produce XPointers which Annozilla cannot interpret. Doug Daniels has recently provided me with a patch for improved XPointer support; I hope to include this in a 0.4 release in February/March.

The annotation schema has also had facilities added recently to allow Replies to annotations; Annozilla does not support this.

All annotation facilities provided by Amaya should be provided

In addition to the new Reply capability, Annozilla does not provide a way of

of annotations. Some of these may be included in a 0.4 or 0.5 release.

There have also been requests for Annozilla to interface with multiple servers, or to be able to keep annotations in a local file. These will be considered.
