Abstract

The Atom syndication format is a generic XML format for representing collections. Profiles are one way how Atom feeds can indicate that they support specific extensions. To make this support visible on the media type level, this specification adds an optional "profile" media type parameter to the Atom media type. This allows profiles to become visible at the media type level, so that servers as well as clients can indicate support for specific Atom profiles in conversations, for example when communicating via HTTP. This specification updates RFC 4287 by adding the "profile" media type parameter to the application/atom+xml media type registration.
