Key developments are support for annotation schemas / context sensitive annotation in Danno / Dannotate, account/password expiry and CAPTCHA support in Emmet, and an overhaul of the JSPs and wirings to improve configurability and ease of embedding.

On the Danno side, access control and login are now fully integrated, and Dannotate has a spiffy new toolbar.
