RSS 4.0

In the spirit of introducing at least one new syndication format every day, we at The RSS Blog have decided to release our own version, as promised, of RSS. Introducing RSS 4.0. The spec for RSS 4.0 can be found here. This new format deprecates all RSS 0.9x, RSS 1.1, RSS 3.0 and the other RSS 3.0. Producers of RSS 0.9x, 1.1 and 3.0 must immediately upgrade as their format is here-forth considered obsolete.

Following is a list of differences between RSS 2.0 and RSS 4.0.

hahaha - cool :)

regards, dood.
Does this new standard make Atom obsolete as well?

No Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0 are OK. But Atom 0.3 is obsoleted by Atom 1.0 :-)


hmm... maybe someone should create RSS 5.0, which would be backwards compatible with Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0 so we can all have a single standard.

I wonder if is available...

How about we just pretend RSS 4.0 is backwards compatible with all three and stop re-inventing the wheel :-)


How should I integrate it?
