Annozilla 0.5.2 available

Finally, an update to Annozilla. This works with Mozilla 1.7.5 and has partial support for Mozilla Firefox.

New features (over version 0.3.5) include multiple server support and local servers.

This is the the Annozilla project, designed to view and create annotations associated with a web page, as defined by the W3C Annotea project. 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.

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.

To use Annozilla, you will need to install the code, get set up with a user account with an annotation server (e.g., the W3C test server), and then you should be ready to go.

You can also see some screenshots - examples of Annozilla in action, and its integration with Mozilla. Currently there are screenshots for either the current released version, or the proposed new version which will be included in the forthcoming 0.4 release.
