Microsoft Posts How-To on Working with RSS in Vista
By Lisa Vaas


Microsoft on Wednesday posted the first installment of a blog to advise developers on creating Web pages and RSS feeds that work correctly with IE 7 and Windows Vista.

Microsoft plans to provide a common feed list of subscriptions and a common feed store of data in Vista, the Windows client release formerly known as Longhorn. The capabilities will be available to applications through Windows APIs.

The company also plans to let users automatically discover and subscribe to feeds in Internet Explorer 7. That feature is already available in competing browsers, including Mozilla Firefox and Apple Computer Inc.’s Safari.

RSS will be available in both IE 7 for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and for Windows’ upcoming Longhorn server, which as yet hasn’t received its final name. Microsoft released a beta of IE 7 last week. The beta for the Longhorn server is due later this summer. Microsoft plans to release the Longhorn RSS APIs during the Professional Developers Conference in September.

The advisory page, available here, is a work in progress that will be updated as Microsoft nears completion of Vista. Microsoft released a beta of Vista last week, and the final product is expected late next year.
