Longhorn (hearts) Atom, too


Yes, we love Atom, too. :)


For the past couple weeks, we’ve been working full-time on implementing the RSS platform features in Longhorn. Of the many interesting features the development team has been checking in, I thought this one might be found interesting: last week, Atom support was checked in by John Lueders (one of the developers on the team). That’s both 0.3 and 1.0 (based on the -09 spec) support.


That check-in completes Longhorn support for the different syndication formats. The grand total is: RSS 0.9x, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, Atom 0.3 and Atom 1.0.


However, just to set expectations, we locked down on Beta 1 of Longhorn about a month ago, so the release of Longhorn that will be public soon won’t have Atom support, but the bits we’ll have at PDC in September, and in Beta 2 will have it.

    How extensible is it, for new specs? Is there an IRssFormatter or the like?

  4. Mark Baker says:

    Can you say what media type(s) will activate Atom 0.3 processing? Does "application/atom+xml" only ever activate the Atom 1.0 processor? Cheers.

  5. Look at that. Nice….

  6. When you say "0.9x" do you mean both 0.91/0.92 (and for the truly twisted, 0.93/0.94) *and* 0.90? Most people who haven’t tried to parse the whole world don’t believe it, but there’s still a fair bit of 0.90 (the RDF ancestor to 1.0) around: it took me a couple of minutes googling to find that without 0.90 support, you don’t parse three of the five feeds from The Perl Review.

    Did any of the RSS bits make it into Vista Beta 1? I’m thinking specifically of the Common RSS Data Store and it’s associated API’s.

    Is there any plan to export the system informations as RSS feed.

  9. Your site is very informational for me. Nice work.

    I’ve just been staying at home not getting anything done. I guess it doesn’t bother me. Shrug. I haven’t been up to anything. I haven’t gotten much done today.

    I haven’t been up to anything these days. So it goes. I can’t be bothered with anything these days.

    I feel like a complete blank, but I don’t care. Pfft. I’ve pretty much been doing nothing worth mentioning.

  13. RuleZ023 says:

    I’ve just been hanging out not getting anything done. What can I say? I’ve basically been doing nothing worth mentioning, but pfft. Not that it matters. Pretty much nothing exciting happening to speak of. I haven’t been up to much these days.

  14. RuleZ023 says:

    I just don’t have anything to say right now. I haven’t been up to anything recently, but it’s not important. I’ve just been sitting around waiting for something to happen, but shrug.

  15. RuleZ023 says:

    Basically nothing noteworthy happening right now, but eh. Today was a complete loss. I haven’t been up to much recently. I’ve pretty much been doing nothing worth mentioning.

  17. RuleZ023 says:

    Not much on my mind these days, but what can I say? It’s not important. I just don’t have much to say lately. I’ve just been letting everything pass me by recently, but eh.

  18. RuleZ023 says:

    I feel like an empty room, but eh. Nothing seems worth doing. I haven’t gotten much done today.
