Google Sitemaps and Atom 1.0

If your site currently generates an Atom feed for use as a Google Sitemap you may want to hold back upgrading your feed to Atom 1.0. Google Sitemaps currently accepts Atom 0.3 only and will throw errors when it encounters the Atom 1.0 feed.

    Looks like the sitemaps Atom support is falling behind. Thanks for pointing it out. I just forwarded it on to the sitemap team, and hopefully we can get it fixed soon. Atom 0.3 isn’t entirely gone from the Internet yet, but it’s just a matter of time.
