Duncan has been working on our new RSS generation system. The new one he's created should be more flexible, accurate and up-to-date. He's looking for feedback on the new format as well. There are two changes we're really interested in feedback. First, he added category support. This is added in two formats:

  • as RSS category tags
    <category domain="msdndomain:ProductVers">Visual Basic.NET</category>
  • using a custom element that defines the topic domain
    <msdn:technology>ADO.NET</msdn:technology>

The second change is that the RSS feeds now have an attached XSLT stylesheet. This means that in browsers that know how to render attached stylesheets, you get a "friendly" view of the RSS, while your aggregator sees the RSS as normal. Send thoughts here, or on Duncan's blog.
