Using RFC3229 with Feeds

If you could implement RFC3229 (Delta Encoding), you could save a lot of bandwidth. It doesn't really matter for the user, but it matters for the servers.

There's an interesting article about this: ... 229_w.html

Thanks for the suggestion! I had looked at this spec when it first came out - at that time there was limited support within the publishing tools for this protocol. It looks like there is growing support - what would you guess the % of feeds you subscribe to support RFC3229?

Probably not a lot :-)

But there are several clients that have started implementing this feature.
