1. I’ve looked at the simplepie source. I don’t think it would be alot of work to maintain among a development group the size of WordPress.

  2. Worth mentioning, I’m planning on maintaining a bugfix fork of SP as one of the (ex?) developers.

  3. @Ryan McCue – I saw your name mentioned in the post and thought hey! I recognize that name! Will you be bringing this information up during the WordPress dev chat?

  4. I was happy when SimplePie was included in WP (Magpie is bit obsolete). But that aura of dusty “next great version is around the corner (for XX months already)” promised issues.

    So now we have two unmaintained feed parsers in WP… Third time’s a charm? :)

  5. What’s the problem with the current SimplePie implementation?

    I am using Textpattern which is a superior CMS because it is not updated so often as other not so secure and not so stable solutions :)

    Using a stable existing version of SimplePie shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t get the point.
