Atom API Update
Today, after many conversations on the rssboard public mailing list with Sam Ruby, I got the fever to check out the progress of Atom. The main topic of conversation on the mailing list is whether HTTP PUT and DELETE are going to fly. That conversation has been ongoing for 2 years. Matt Mullenweg doesn't think it was realistic and Tim Bray bit. Wow, didn't I say that 3 years ago. When I read the thread, I didn't understand. Doesn't Atom have a SOAP alternative that doesn't require PUT or DELETE? This was one of Tim Bray's highlights when he announced the IETF working group 2 years ago. It turns out that the latest version of Atom doesn't mention SOAP at all, except in the revision notes. It seems the SOAP alternative was removed last summer or fall. What a shame!
