I'm pleased to announce the release of RSS 1.1: a bugfix version of RSS
1.0, being a popular XML-based syndication format.
- RSS 1.1 Specification
This specification has been developed by a group of RSS 1.0 users
including myself who sought not just to resolve the various bugs therein
but also to improve the integrity of the specification in general, and
provide RELAX NG and RDF Schemata.
To coincide with the release, we're also making available a number of
tools, including an RSS 1.1 feed validator (using a SAX parser in
Python), a converter (based on XSLT), a test suite, and various
implementations for Movable Type, Wordpress, and others, all of which
are linked to from the following guide:
- A Rough Guide to RSS 1.1
Discussion of the format may be had in any of the following fora,
depending upon the particular nature of the feedback:
* xml-dev - Reply to this thread if you have comments about any
XML related matters, especially including the validator and
* irc.freenode.net #rss1.1 - For real time communication with the
developers of the specification, and any general comments.
* rss-dev mailing list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rss-dev/
For feedback on how RSS 1.1 relates to 1.0 and other syndication
Specific typographical corrections may be sent directly to the editors,
the contact details for whom are in the specification.
