Project aims.

<h1>Aims</h1>

<p>Here are some aims of the Annozilla project.

<h2>Keep up with Mozilla releases</h2>
<p>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.</p>

<h2>Interopability with Amaya</h2>

<p>Annozilla should support all annotation features which Amaya supports. In
particular:</p>

<h3>Any annotation posted by Amaya should be readable with Annozilla</h3>
<p>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.</p>
<p>The annotation schema has also had facilities added recently to allow
Replies to annotations; Annozilla does not support this.</p>

<h3>All annotation facilities provided by Amaya should be provided</h3>
<p>In addition to the new Reply capability, Annozilla does not provide a way of
<ul>
<li>deleting
<li>editing
<li>changing the type
</ul>
of annotations. Some of these may be included in a 0.4 or 0.5 release.</p>

<p>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.</p>
