    What is the status of this project? I'd like to start using it but after checking out the source and poking around here it looks to be in a state of flux.. I'd be happy to help get it moving again, but can't seem to find any developer mailing list... it would be great if someone would contact me about it. rick at


    1. Rome 1.0 is stable and used in production in many companies.  I added a link to our Mailing Lists on the toolbar to the right.

    Agree with the previous post, would be nice to know the status of this project.  Any updates since ROME 1.0?

    1. There haven't been enough changes to motivate a new version release yet.  1.0 has been very reliable.

        Maybe you haven't looked at the proposed roadmap for a while?   There are lots of things to add!  Outwardly, this project looks dead...

    Rome has worked very good for me since I found it recently.

    The tutorials at displays Page not found. warned earlier that the page is going to be removed.

    Could we put the articles here instead? I saved them on my PC, in case you have no backup.

    Is there a method to get the XML source of an entry?

  7. Hi,

    I need to consume ATOM feeds. I am evaluating Apache Abdera and Rome. Do you have any points to support why ROME is better than Apache Abdera? 

    Also, i would like to know is there inbuilt polling mechanism in ROME or we need to schedule the programs for fetching feeds. If there is inbuilt polling mechanism, any pointers to understand that will be very helpful.
