Windows RSS Platform update

February 4, 2006

From the IE blog via Alex Barnett, news on on RSS and Microsoft Windows.

You might have seen or read about the RSS functionality in the user interface of IE7 Beta 2 Preview. There is a bit more to it then just letting users subscribe and read feeds from the IE7 user interface. The RSS functionality in IE7 is ‘powered’ by the Windows RSS Platform. The Windows RSS Platform API encapsulates 3 main components: Common Feed List, Feed Synchronization Engine, and Feed Store.

RSS may be some abstract concept to the masses today. But get RSS incorporated into an easy to use application on Window’s machines in most every office in the country and RSS will be mainstream. T-Minus about 18 months.
