    RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Atom feeds provide the same capability but in a different format. Both RSS and Atom feeds require a Feed Reader or Atom Feed software. In addition, most web browsers are capable of viewing RSS or Atom feeds. Subscribing to the feed will allow you to display status alerts via your Feed Reader or News Aggregator software.
