This morning, at cfObjective, ColdFusion Product Manager Jason Delmore spilled the beans about a new tag in Scorpio named which can be used to read and create RSS or Atom syndication feeds. can read feeds from a URL or file (supporting RSS versions 0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94, 1.0, and 2.0, and Atom 0.3 or 1.0). can create feeds from manually created structures or queries (supporting RSS 2.0 or Atom 1.0). This tag is incredibly flexible, and makes working with syndication simple and fun. I’ll post examples in the future.

  1. Ben,
    This is getting out of hand! How much functionality, cool features, smart ideas and what not can you fit into CF8? Unbelievable! I hope you never stop, and I hope you sell a billion copies. Great job Adobe!

  2. I’ve been messing with CFFEED and am having problems reading an RSS feed fully.
    The problem is when it gets to items <customRss:model> or <media:content> in the feed.
    I am assuming because these values are not standard. If this is the case, is there any way to read these items using CFFEED?
    Here’s one item pulled from a feed as an example:
    <item>
    <title>TITLE</title>
    <description>DESCRIPTION</description>
    <pubDate>2007-09-14 00:00:00</pubDate>
    <link>LINK</link>
    <customRss:model>FORD GALAXIE</customRss:model>
    <media:content url="http://www.picpulse.com/galaxie.jpg&quot; type="image/jpeg"/>
    </item>

  3. I’m trying to create a feed with an image in the <description> but can’t find any info on how to do so. Any ideas?? TIA!
