Annozilla 0.7.0 and annotations 0.4.0 have been released for Firefox 3/3.5. The installation instructions and user manual will continue to be updated.
Firefox users can use the automatic update facility to get these new versions.
New features in the 0.7 build:
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.
