Transition Request

News Item

The W3C <a href="">Social Web Working Group</a> has determined that there are sufficient interoperable implementations of Micropub clients and servers to advance the <a href="">Micropub specification</a> to Proposed Recommendation. Micropub provides an API standard and extensible way for clients to post, delete, and update social content to servers such as blogs or social media. In particular, we encourage existing implementations of AtomPub (RFC 5023), and the MetaWeblog API (AKA "XML-RPC") to upgrade to Micropub which both supports richer content types, and has additional security & privacy benefits.
