The proposal to request "application/rss+xml" as the MIME media type for RSS has passed with all 11 members of the RSS Advisory Board voting in favor.

The proposal has been made jointly with the RSS-Dev Working Group, the group that publishes RDF Site Summary.

The application for the media type was made yesterday to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, the group that assigns these identifiers.

The board supports the designation of a common MIME type for all versions of RSS, whether the documents use RDF Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication.

IANA's response will be reported here and on the RSS-Public mailing list.


With MIME RSS will not bee Really Simple Syndication :( atleast for PHP developers
