Annozilla 0.6.1 + Annotations 0.3.0 released

These releases fix a number of problems:

  • Improved support for annotations with non-ASCII characters
  • Firefox 1.5 compatibility
  • On Firefox, changes the 'sidebar' keyboard shortcut from Ctrl-Z to Alt-Z
  • Improved the behaviour of the local annotations server.

Firefox users can use the automatic update facility to get these new versions.

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.
