Z39.50/RDF Integration Project

Thursday September 16th, 1999

A project documented at Mozilla.org aims to integrate Mozilla's RDF capability with the ANSI/NISO Z39.50 specification for information retrieval in a client/server environment. The Z39.50 protocol is used in many bibliographic and digital library applications, and the project aims to make it possible to query the thousands of Z39.50 connected servers from Mozilla, with the results appearing in Mozilla's sidebar. This is another great project brought to you by that supposedly non-existent group of third-party Mozilla developers. One of the project's contacts works for the Z39.50 Maintenance Agency. Good qualification, I would think.

Thanks to Joerg Beierle for the news.

You know, at some point people should stop adding cute things like library access and, well, make mozilla _useable_! There are tons of features that are simply nonexistant, or unfinished. All of these extras are nice, but at some point someone needs to yell "feature freeze!" And just get the thing out the door. If we keep throwing more junk on Mozilla, it will get big and ugly.
