Amaya project is intended to be a comprehensive client environment for testing and evaluating new proposals for Web standards and formats.

A large part of the intended features of Amaya are implemented in this release, but some of them are not complete yet.

Here are some key features of "Amaya":
Amaya lets users both browse and author Web pages

Using Amaya you can create Web pages and upload them onto a server. Authors can create a document from scratch, they can browse the web and find the information they need, copy and paste it to their pages, and create links to other Web sites. All this is done in a straightforward and simple manner, and actions are performed in a single consistent environment. Editing and browsing functions are integrated seamlessly in a single tool.

Amaya maintains a consistent internal document model adhering to the DTD

Amaya always represents the document internally in a structured way consistent with the Document Type Definition (DTD). A properly structured document enables other tools to further process the data safely.
Amaya allows you to display the document structure at the same time as the formatted view, which is portrayed diagrammatically on the screen.

Amaya is able to work on several documents at a time

Several (X)HTML, native MathML (.mml) and SVG (.svg) documents can be displayed and edited at a time.

Amaya helps authors create hypertext links

The editor helps you create and text out links to other documents on the Web from the document you currently are working on. You can view the links and get a feel for how the information is interconnected. This feature is not limited to HTML anchors. With XLink, any MathML and SVG element can be a link too.

Amaya includes a collaborative annotation application

Annotations are external comments, notes, remarks that can be attached to any Web document or a selected part of the document. This application is based on Resource Description Framework (RDF), XLink, and XPointer recommendations.

Amaya is easily extended.

Several APIs and mechanisms are available to change and extend its functionality with the least modification to the source code.

What's New in This Release:
New features
A new button to open the CSS editor which replaces style panels
A new file explorer panel
A large set of new mathematical constructions in the Maths panel (thanks to Frederic Wang)
New Maths shortcuts (thanks to Frederic Wang)
