The news aggregator will automatically check the RSS feed for new content, allowing the content to be automatically passed from website to website or from website to user. Websites usually use RSS feeds to publish frequently updated information, such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, video.
An RSS document (called "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, and metadata, like publishing date and author's name.
This new version, which reclaimed the name RDF Site Summary from RSS 0.9, reintroduced support for RDF and added XML namespaces support, adopting elements from standard metadata vocabularies such as Dublin Core.
This aggregator can be built into a website, installed on a desktop computer, or installed on a mobile device.
Users subscribe to feeds either by entering a feed's URI into the reader or by clicking on the browser's feed icon.
In September 2002, Winer released a major new version of the format, RSS 2.0, that redubbed its initials Really Simple Syndication.
RSS 2.0 removed the type attribute added in the RSS 0.94 draft and added support for namespaces.
