The two day Syndicate Conference finished up yesterday. Lots of good news about microformats and more and better support for microformats was announced both during the conference and the weeks leading up to it. I’m still collecting/collating all the recent announcements.
For now, check out the following:
- Microformats: Emerging syndication types presentation at yesterday’s microcontent panel.
- The Structured Blogging plug-in(s)/extension(s) have been updated to support several microformats including hCalendar and hReview.
- Beta versions of a Contacts Feed Service and Events Feed Service (using the most excellent X2V Proxy code written by Brian Suda) to allow automatic conversion and import and subscriptions of hCards and hCalendar events into desktop address book and calendaring applications.
- Contribution of all previous Attention.xml specification/format work to microformats.org by Attensa and Technorati with the understanding that it must undergo the microformats process and thus may be completely rethought and rewritten. See the attention page for more info.
And that’s just a taste. More to follow.
