Annozilla 0.6.3 released

This release fixes or improves a number of issues with the user interface.

  • Added "Select All" and "Copy" options in a context (right-click) menu when you load annotation bodies in the sidebar (bug 12626)
  • Fixed the editing of Server Preferences in Firefox 1.5 (bug 12633)
  • Fixed the editing of the 'autoload by site' list in Firefox 1.5 (bug 12701). However, note that the actual autoloading functionality does not work correctly and autoloads when it should not (bug 12705)
  • Removed the "About Annotea" option in the Help menu. On Firefox, removed the "About Annozilla" option in the Help menu.
  • Added a context (right-click) menu to the list of annotation servers, to select any server as the Default Post Server.
  • Changed the "New Server" and "Edit Server" windows so that the user's password has to be confirmed before the entry is added.

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

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.
