----- Notes from 7/16/12 -------

*I.
Recent Changes to Annotator
*

*
https://github.com/okfn/annotator/compare/master...wip
*


   - Note updates to the store plugin and serialization
   - Particularly relevant is the new annotation property:  *_local*
      - Which is a local storage object that aims to make Annotator Core
         more abstract by supporting more nuanced Ranges / Anchors
depending on the
         local context
         - *Goal: *Ideally Annotator Core is simply a Database with the
   following calls:
   * • Create | Update | Delete | Query*
   To simplify things, we will likely combine the *Auth Plugin and Store
   Plugin in future versions of Annotator *


*II. Action Items*

*Storage*

   - *@Nick* to merge WIP branch
   - *@Anna* to test LoreStore with WIP branch
   - *@Nick* to merge Auth Plugin with new Store plugin

*User Interface*

   - *@Randall* to dig out highlighter extraction branch

*Flexible Matching*

   - *@Kristof* to extract Hypothes.is <http://hypothes.is/> flexible
   matching and submit a pull request
      - *strive to remain backward compatible with the existing reference
      store* by utilizing the new the _local object so UI can rely on the
      anchored range regardless of the serialization

*Multimedia Annotation*

   - *@Anna* to write up this
discussion<https://docs.google.com/a/finalsclub.org/document/d/1qYwTzTgRJbXid_3OY_th8bvP8ZEB-ACeQjAGjqQh6LY/edit#bookmark=id.ejcygaiaakmj>
and
   send a summary to the mailing list for further discussion

*InterPlugin Communication*

   - *@Randall* to remove all use of reference by class (use string names
   instead) in plugin instantiation/config.

*Other Issues*

   - *@Jamie* to pull master (1.2.7) and build, integrate into a branch of
   Annotation Studio to test `Annotator#destroy()`
   - @*Andrew *Schedule another community call
   - @*Everyone* Stay tuned for build 1.2.8 release of Annotator in the
   near future


I look forward to further discussion, releases, and lots more annotation.
 Please do check out the full
notes<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qYwTzTgRJbXid_3OY_th8bvP8ZEB-ACeQjAGjqQh6LY/edit?usp=sharing>
