Windows RSS platform

The Windows RSS platform is included in Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Vista, both due out later this year. The platform exposes feed and list data to all Windows applications via a common API, manages enclosure downloads, and applies common security settings to feed data and downloads.

Windows XP and Windows Vista users will soon be using Internet Explorer 7 as their default browser. They may notice a glowing orange button on their toolbar, click it, and start subscribing to feeds exposed on the page. A subscribed feed is added to the Common Feed List, a centralized list of subscriptions available to any application. A user may initiate a subscription inside Internet Explorer but the new subscription is immediately added to other feed aggregators integrated with the Common Feed List back-end such as RSS Bandit or FeedDemon.
