What Are The Main Differences Between Atom 1.0 And RSS 2.0


  • 21 Jan, 2012

    Main differences between Atom 1.0 and RSS 2.0:► Atom has separate "summary" and "content" elements, while RSS only has one "description" element.► Atom standardizes auto-discovery in contrast to the many non-standard variants used with RSS 2.0.► In Atom, it is mandatory that each entry have a globally unique ID, which is important for reliable updating of entries.► Atom 1.0 allows standalone Atom Entry documents whereas with RSS 2.0 only full feed documents are supported.► Atom specifies that dates be in the format described in RFC 3339. The date format in RSS 2.0 was underspecified and has led to many different formats being used.
