[Valid Atom 1.0]

After a small bit of work today, DasBlog 1.8 will (does) produce valid Atom 1.0 feeds. This is response to the bakededness of Atom 1.0 and Sam's desire to deprecate 0.3. DasBlog won't produce Atom 0.3 anymore (it was always marked under "experimental' anyway) so when you upgrade to 1.8 your Atom feed will upgrade automatically.

We do, as always, produce valid RSS 2.0 and now Atom 1.0. Here's a list of known Atom 1.0 consumers if you care.

When will 1.8 be complete? I'm champing at the bit. As always, thanks for your effort.

Good point Sam. I've moved it and put in a 301 Moved so the permalink isn't invalid.

Ironically, your atom 1.0 feed does not validate, and this is the entry that's breaking validation:

line 253, column 2: Missing textual content

I believe this was a problem with DasBlog's Atom 0.3 support, I noticed that periodically, I'd get your posts without any content.

Gordon, that is (was) weird. I've fixed it and checked in a change that should handle the case where XHTML isn't cool and instead include a content type="html" chunk.
