RSS has made a very large impact on the web and the XML community at
However I think it is time for a 0.92 revision. Specifically because
RSS should become more of a slashdot type discussion content while
maintaining it's thin capability as in my.netscape.com and my.yahoo.com.
I have the following suggestions:
Ideas for a 0.92 version of RSS
- support an author within an item
- necessary for a RSS channel published by a company
- support an image within an item
- adds extensions to become more like a portal site. For small
my.netscape.com this can just be ignored. However for weblog
slashdot or my home page (relativity.yi.org) this is necessary.
- <more> which is a URL that expands to a larger article
- this can be used to bootstrap into a discussion URL or to a longer
of the <description> tag.
- <desription> should not be CDATA anymore. It should contain multiple
- published date on <items> via <pubDate>. This allows you to keep
how old (or fresh) the content is.
- language on items. This is necessary for global RSS
Also, anyone have a contact with Netscape about this? Their newsgroup
is pretty empty.
