rNews Changes from 0.1 to 0.5
After listening to feedback from many early users of rNews both inside and outside IPTC, we have made some key clarifications, simplifications and expansions. In summary, the changes are:
- Rename "Tag" to "Concept" - We feel this name more accurately conveys the intended meaning and use.
- Fewer classes - The former "Hed" class has been folded into properties of "NewsItem" and the former "TickerSymbol" class has been folded into a property of "Organization"
- More expressive - We adopted the entire georss model, not just lat long for "Location"; we added publishing principles, for parity with hNews.
- Various errata fixed and best practices documented - based on testing rNews 0.1 markup on actual content, we identified mistakes we made and common representation techniques
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback. Please try out rNews 0.5 and let us know what else we need to add, change or remove.
