Summary description: A collaborative annotation tool for LaTeX documents
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
FiXme v4.1 is out.

What's new:

** 8 new PDF-specific annotation layouts.
** New annotation layout: marginnote
** Better mechanism for handling layout mutual exclusion.
** Fix bug in inner layout processing.

FiXme is a collaborative annotation tool for LaTeX documents.
Annotating a document refers here to inserting meta-notes,
that is,
notes that do not belong to the document itself, but rather
to its
development or reviewing process. Such notes may involve
things of
different importance levels, ranging from simple "fix the
flags to critical "this paragraph is a lie" mentions.
Annotations like
this should be visible during the development or reviewing
phase, but
should normally disapear in the final version of the document.

FiXme is designed to ease and automate the process of managing
collaborative annotations, by offering a set of predefined
note levels
and layouts, the possibility to register multiple note
authors, to
reference annotations by listing and indexing etc. FiXme is
extensible, giving you the possibility to create new layouts
or even
complete "themes", and also comes with support for AUC-TeX.
