XML-RPC Specification Revised
Date: Fri, 22 Jan 1999 08:14:40 -0800 From: Dave Winer <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: XML-RPC spec revised
Yesterday we posted revisions to the XML-RPC spec:
There were clarifications on formats for values of params and returned values.
A new value type, <base64>, was added, to allow transmission of binary encoded data.
There are now Python, Perl, Java and Frontier implementations of XML-RPC. Many of the clarifications were needed to support the new implementations. The <base64> value type was suggested by the Python folks, and it was a very good idea and solved a lot of thorny problems.
We're also making good progress working with Allaire on bridging WDDX and XML-RPC. The project heated up last week, but has quieted down this week because Allaire is doing their IPO today! That's a good excuse in my book. ;->
