Annozilla 0.6.6 released

This release fixes a number of bugs and adds a Japanese translation.

  • List of available languages are taken from the browser's internal lists, ensuring that they appear appropriately for the user's language (Firefox editor window only)
  • Editor windows closed correctly after posting (bug 12830)
  • When an annotation icon is inside a link, selecting the link opens the annotation body and doesn't follow the link
  • A correction to the insertion of icons inside documents

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

Thanks to Dr. Katsuhiko Tsujino for his work in fixing these bugs, and for providing the Japanese translation.

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.
