Lotus Notes News Reader v0.2

This is an early draft of a R5.x Lotus Notes RSS News Aggregators.

See "What is RSS", for more detail, but the short answer is that Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution, containing recent or changed items from a website.

I've included several example feed url's. Add your own Feeds, make them active and go. I've built it to handle RSS formats 0.91, 0.92, 2.0 and 1.0 (sometimes know as RDF). More detailed help, new features to follow. Given the growing number of Lotus Notes Domino weblogs (blogs), I thought it was over due time to have a a tool to read those, and other sources, in Lotus Notes as well. By all means email me with suggestions, feedback, etc....enjoy!

A Note about RSS feeds...On many websites, and blogs the xml feed is identified with this a xml gif such as . for example Infoworld point to several feed on their home page this way :
Web Services  The Notes News Reader need the url under the tiny xml gif :, which is a RDF or RSS 1.0 feed.

update >> Lotus Notes News Reader v0.3 is the one you want.
