    <h3><a href="installation.html">Annozilla 0.3.5 released</a></h3>
    <p>Annozilla 0.3.5 is released, mainly for compatibility with Mozilla 1.2 beta,
    but I encourage all users of 0.3 releases to upgrade, as it fixes a bug
    whereby some annotations would sometimes not be displayed.</p>
    <p>This release is not compatible with Phoenix; this is expected to be
    (partially) addressed in the forthcoming 0.4 release.</p>
    <h3>Countdown to 0.4</h3>
    <p>Here's a list of what needs to be done before releasing Annozilla 0.4:</p>
    <ul>
        <li><strike>Use XPointerLib for XPointer functionality</strike>
        <li>Remove "check for reply" functionality from user interface (this is being postponed until the protocols are fully documented)
        <li>Ensure compatibility with Mozilla 1.0
        <li>Ensure compatibility with Mozilla 1.2.1
        <li>Ensure compatibility with Phoenix 0.5
        <li>Improve behaviour with respect to tabbed browsing
        <li>Make sure that editing annotations doesn't discard metadata associated with them
    </ul>
</div>

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