Describe changes planned for 0.4 release

    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 inserted in the body using XBL (therefore they don't change
    7:     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 0.3.2 release brings Annozilla up to date with Mozilla 0.9.8.</p>
   25: 
   26: <h3>Interopability with Amaya</h3>
   27: 
   28: <p>Annozilla should support all annotation features which Amaya supports. In
   29: particular:</p>
   30: 
   31: <h4>Any annotation posted by Amaya should be readable with Annozilla</h4>
   32: <p>Currently Annozilla does not achieve this: Amaya can produce XPointers which
   33: Annozilla cannot interpret. Doug Daniels has recently provided me with a patch
   34: for improved XPointer support; I hope to include this in a 0.4 release in
   35: February/March.</p>
   36: <p>The annotation schema has also had facilities added recently to allow
   37: Replies to annotations; Annozilla does not support this.</p>
   38: 
   39: <h4>All annotation facilities provided by Amaya should be provided</h4>
   40: <p>In addition to the new Reply capability, Annozilla does not provide a way of
   41: <ul>
   42: <li>deleting
   43: <li>editing
   44: <li>changing the type
   45: </ul>
   46: of annotations. Some of these may be included in a 0.4 or 0.5 release.</p>
   47: 
   48: <p>There have also been requests for Annozilla to interface with multiple
   49: servers, or to be able to keep annotations in a local file. These will be
   50: considered.</p>
