Annozilla 0.5.4 available

This release is recommended for all users and fixes a number of issues:

  • Adds an editor in Firefox for the first time. The Firefox editor is not as polished as the Mozilla version, but has more or less the same features. (Install the Spellbound extension too to get spell-checking on annotations.)
  • Fixes the "annotate current selection" context-menu command for Mozilla 1.7.7. Also adds this command to Firefox, where it was inexplicably missing
  • Fixes preference handling in Firefox. (Some preferences could never be set in Firefox; some screens worked only intermittently.)

Updating of annotation bodies is still not working.

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 packages, 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.
