RSS Version History

Advertisements

RSS was first invented by Netscape. They wanted to use an XML format to distribute news, stories and information. Netscape refined the version of RSS and then dropped it.

Later Userland Software started controlling RSS specifications and releasing newer RSS versions. They continued development of their own version of RSS and eventually UserLand released RSS v2.

RSS has been released in many different versions.

Which RSS Version Should be Used?

There is no consensus on using RSS feed version. Its up to you which version you want to use. I would personally suggest to use latest one which RSS2.0. This is simple enough to use and easy to learn.

We will see feed formats for these versions in next chapter.
