[maemo-community] Xournal

Here I share my idea of next versions for Xournal for Maemo:

Beta Relese

sometime end of September
fully working, few things to iron out.
New feature: mail / bt sharing

First stable release:

Working release of Xournal with as many bugs squashed out
Fully adapted to Maemo 5
Ready for the mass. No new notable feature.

Next release

Sometime before Christmas
- Sharing feature to be extended to on-line services:
  - Google Docs
  - Evernote
  - You name it

New features:
- On-Line PDF annotation:
  1 Select on-line PDF (from Gdocs/Evernote/bla)
  2 Annotate as usual
  3 PDF is only kept in local cache
  4 the Xournal own file stores the PDF remote location (of course you
can choose to bind a
     permanent copy of it as it does now)

This On-Line PDF annotation allows the user to share only the
annotations with users and have a single copy of the PDF in a remote
Use case: a student shares a PDF with exam to Prof. Prof annotates
errors, sends back annotations to user; user opens it as usual.
Pro: Smaller file to send around.
Cons: Online copy of PDF might disappear.

- Speech / Scribble recognition
  - anyone knows a good library for those?

- Attach Audio/Video to notes
  - rough idea. How would you annotate an audio or a video?
    First things that comes to mind: lyrics style?

Suggestions? Ideas?
