Microsoft floats new extensions to RSS

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:43 am

Software giant Microsoft is working on an extension to the popular RSS feed, it has been revealed. The new format, which the company dubs ‘Simple Sharing Extensions’, is intended to extend the standard to enable the sharing of such things as calendaring and contact lists between individuals.

The idea is to use OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language), which is used to allow exchange of outline-structured information between applications and RSS, to create a new format to allow exchange of data.
