Annozilla 0.3.3 re-released
The initial 0.3.3 release didn't seem to work. I've made a new
release now (on the CVS main branch, not the patched branch) which
I hope will work. If you installed 0.3.3 before 18th March, please
try clearing your browser cache (Edit -> Preferences ->
Advanced -> Cache) and reinstalling. (This
is the error you'll see if you have the wrong version.)
Changes in 0.3.1 were:
- Goes directly to the annotation server, instead of via the bookmarklet
- Uses fixed positioning in the sidebar to display the title and annotation
body at all times
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
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 both the current released version, and the proposed new version
which should be included as part of the 0.4 release, when it is available.
