y-notes is a set of lightweight applets and CGI scripts which enables a webmaster to specify points where the website's visitors may leave 'sticky notes'. The notes are kept on the server so that users can retrieve them at a later time and use them as a navigation aid. y-notes are particularly useful in large sites such as tutorials and reference manuals. They can also be used in web pages as a fairly uncomplicated way of gathering user feedback which requires no registration, logins, or passwords.

Release Notes: The Makefile was changed to include site-specific config files.
Release Notes: A fix for the applet parameter handling for shared notes.
Release Notes: Notes can now be made public (shared) or private. PinApplet now calls a SharedViewer to display public notes left by other users on the annotation point. Old style "private-only" operation can still be selected via applet parameters.
Release Notes: New code to reorganise the DB automatically after every 100 deletions (otherwise GDBM won't reclaim space from deleted entries).
