   36: <!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
   37: <p>Bookwyrm is an Interactive Fiction collection manager. When complete, 
   38: it will allow browsing and download of large online game repositories, 
   39: and a universal intepreter that can play any of the major virtual machine based
   40: game formats.</p>
   41: 
   42: <p>Bookwyrm uses game databases stored in RDF format, utilizing the
   43: vocabularies provided by the <a 
   44: href="http://purl.org/int-fiction/ifmi/">Interactive Fiction Metadata Initiative</a>.
   45: Planned features include the ability to crawl online RDF datawebs, making Bookwyrm
   46: something of a Semantic Web application.</p>
   47: 
   48: <p>Development will follow three general stages:</p>
   49: <ol>
   50:     <li>A Firefox extension, providing the basic features of cataloguing
   51:     and launching games, but depending on external interpreters to run them.</li>
   52:     <li>A standalone application, essentially a migration from Firefox to XULRunner
   53:     when the latter reaches production level deployment. (And more to the point,
   54:     when XULRunner has something resembling useful developer documentation.)</li>
   55:     <li>Completion of remaining features, including the framework for internal 
   56:     plug-in interpreters.</li>
   57: </ol>
   58: <p>Stage 1 is already well underway. Releases available on the 
   59: <a href="installation.html">installation</a> page.</p>
   60:
