Drupal 7 aggregator not updating
Two parties emerged to fill the void, with neither Netscape's help nor approval: The RSS-DEV Working Group and Dave Winer, whose User Land Software had published some of the first publishing tools outside Netscape that could read and write RSS.
Winer published a modified version of the RSS 0.91 specification on the User Land website, covering how it was being used in his company's products, and claimed copyright to the document.
This would be Netscape's last participation in RSS development for eight years.
As RSS was being embraced by web publishers who wanted their feeds to be used on My. Com and other early RSS portals, Netscape dropped RSS support from My. Com in April 2001 during new owner AOL's restructuring of the company, also removing documentation and tools that supported the format.
In July 2003, Winer and User Land Software assigned the copyright of the RSS 2.0 specification to Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where he had just begun a term as a visiting fellow.
This aggregator can be built into a website, installed on a desktop computer, or installed on a mobile device.
These feeds can, for example, allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator.
The news aggregator will automatically check the RSS feed for new content, allowing the content to be automatically passed from website to website or from website to user. Websites usually use RSS feeds to publish frequently updated information, such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, video.
This new version, which reclaimed the name RDF Site Summary from RSS 0.9, reintroduced support for RDF and added XML namespaces support, adopting elements from standard metadata vocabularies such as Dublin Core.
In December 2000, Winer released RSS 0.92 a minor set of changes aside from the introduction of the enclosure element, which permitted audio files to be carried in RSS feeds and helped spark podcasting.According to their view, a difference of interpretation left publishers unsure of whether this was permitted or forbidden. The RSS format itself is relatively easy to read both by automated processes and by humans alike.
