    7:     <h3><a href="installation.html">Annozilla 0.3.5 released</a></h3>
    8:     <p>Annozilla 0.3.5 is released, mainly for compatibility with Mozilla 1.2 beta,
    9:     but I encourage all users of 0.3 releases to upgrade, as it fixes a bug
   10:     whereby some annotations would sometimes not be displayed.</p>
   11:     <p>This release is not compatible with Phoenix; this is expected to be
   12:     (partially) addressed in the forthcoming 0.4 release.</p>
   13:     <h3>Countdown to 0.4</h3>
   14:     <p>Here's a list of what needs to be done before releasing Annozilla 0.4:</p>
   15:     <ul>
   16:         <li><strike>Use XPointerLib for XPointer functionality</strike>
   17:         <li><strike>Remove "check for reply" functionality from user interface (this is being postponed till a later release)</strike>
   18:         <li>Ensure compatibility with Mozilla 1.0
   19:         <li>Ensure compatibility with Mozilla 1.2.1
   20:         <li>Ensure compatibility with Phoenix 0.5 if possible
   21:         <li>Improve behaviour with respect to tabbed browsing if possible
   22:         <li>Make sure that editing annotations doesn't discard metadata associated with them
   23:     </ul>

   26: <p id="intro">This is the the <b>Annozilla</b> project, designed to view and
   27: create annotations associated with a web page, as defined by the <a
   28: href="http://www.w3.org/2001/Annotea/">W3C Annotea project</a>. The idea is to
   29: store annotations as RDF on a server, using XPointer (or at least XPointer-like
   30: constructs) to identify the region of the document being annotated.</p>
   31: <p>The intention of Annozilla is to use Mozilla's native facilities to
   32: manipulate annotation data - its built-in RDF handling to parse the
   33: annotations, and nsIXmlHttpRequest to submit data when creating
   34: annotations.</p>
   35: <p>To use Annozilla, you will need to <a href="installation.html">install the
   36: code</a>, get set up with a user account with an annotation server <a
   37: href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">(e.g., the W3C test server)</a>, and then
   38: you should be ready to go.</p>
   39: <p>You can also see <a href="screenshots.html">some screenshots</a> - examples
   40: of Annozilla in action, and its integration with Mozilla. Currently there are
   41: screenshots for either <a href="screenshots/first/">the current released
   42:     version</a>, or <a href="screenshots/second/">the proposed new version</a>
   43: which will be included in the forthcoming 0.4 release.</p>
