Annozilla 0.7.0, annotations 0.4.0 released

Annozilla 0.7.0 and annotations 0.4.0 have been released for Firefox 3/3.5. The installation instructions will continue to be updated.

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

This is 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 start using the extension. There is a draft of a manual available on this site to describe how to use the extension. Please feel free to address any comments on this manual to the mailing list.
