Atom 1.0

It is almost there. Implementors should start implementing. Now! Tim has details on what follows. (Draft 10 was released and now the IETF needs to approve it in a nutshell.) He also compares RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 and lists the Atomic Tribe (contributors). That is me! For all you W3C lovers out there, Atom has the following namespace: I know, the capital sucks, but it is a copy and paste thing anyway.

My biggest contribution is probably rel="via". It might have gotten there without me, but I made a draft write-up for it and it got included. O well, enough about me. Party!


  1. Congratulations.

    How long is it going to take before this will all be officially approved?

  2. Is there a quick-and-dirty comparison of 0.3 and 1.0 so that lazy people don't have to bother reading the spec?

  3. This is cool! Now I have to revamp my feed...

    I used a lot of info from your site and Mike Pilgrim's to build my Atom feed in PHP.

    When will you switch? Shall I expect a detailed description of what was involved in the transition?

  4. Neat. I’m working on a couple of new websites this summer: I’ll make sure they’ll get an Atom 1.0 feed. ☺
