Atom syndication format

An XML-based syndication format that is used to publish headlines of the latest updates on blogs and websites for retrieval by users and other sites. Based on RSS 2.0, Atom was turned over to the IETF for standardization. Most newsreaders support Atom along with the traditional RSS formats. See hAtom, syndication format and RSS.
