Last week I’ve done some major backend changes which will eventually pay off. At least, that was the intention behind making them. Somewhere in the future I’ll highlight what changes I made, et cetera.

Nice list of interesting articles. Thanks.
Very interesting and helpfull.
I already pointed this out in the comments and in private e-mail, but I didn’t really get any satisfactory response.
The wording was changed in response to your original comment, and even more so just now to further clarify.
RE: RSS is dead - Seems like just another war of formats to me. For the supporters of Atom to win, they have to: 1. have Atom made a standard, and 2. Persuade everybody else that it's the only acceptable format - looks like the situation with browser wars, etc... We have seen many examples of how fruitless this can be.
As I’m passionate about feeds I’ll try to respond. It’s not really a war of formats as most of the people behind Atom would have loved to clean up RSS 2.0. Taking along the good bits and specifying the bad a bit better and publish an IETF RSS 2.1 draft. However, as Dave Winer thought RSS was perfect as it was that didn’t happen and so Atom came into picture.
RSS is like the HTML people created back in ’95. Atom is like XHTML 2.0. As pointed out above, a HTML5 solution wasn’t possible thanks to the ‘owner’ of RSS 2.0.
As one of those killing RSS in any version, I would like to state that it's first a question of usability, secondly a choice of "most suitable format" - I don't publish rich media content, like podcasts, and thus wouldn't need any "enclosures".
Arguments against this movement are generally that it is up to the user. While it's nice that a user can choose; please. Users shouldn't have to care about this for a bit. Feeds should be transparent to them, completely. If you want to give the user control, feed them with HTML 4.01 if desired. Also, there are a lot of versions of RSS, are you offering all eleven variants of them? Are you offering CDF as well? RSS 3.0? ESF?
Point taken. :)
Any time a div is the answer, there’s a hole in HTML.
It's right. Any. Why DIV (and uselessest SPAN) was included in XHTML 2.0? Especially because SECTION exists for riched content.
