WP 2.1: Still No Atom 1.0 Support
As Joe Gregorio notes, WordPress was supposed to support Atom 1.0 starting with the 1.6 milestone [which, as I recall, never happened and became 2.0]. Mark Pilgrim is frustrated, too. So am I, but this should be a surprise to exactly no one.
But being one to work within the system … there’s the new Ideas forum, and well, there’s a topic to support Atom 1.0 support in the next release. I’ve already chimed in. Go rate it up. If we all rate it up, perhaps it will become a priority. [It should be, anyway; WP is shipping to a deprecated version of a specification, something really outside the main WP ethos.]
