FWIW, 1.0 *is* backwards compatible with 0.9, just not backwards compatible with 0.91. This was because (I assume) the guys behind 1.0 decided 0.9 was a better base design to start from. Will we be seeing 0.92 feeds just because Frontier will release new code to support it, or are you aware of people actively implementing 0.92 based code for the popular web languages out there? Matt.
