Has there been consideration of building RSS ping into AM 2.0 or future versions? There are several ways to automate ping (REST or XML-RPC), but I've found a fairly simple method using Perl's LWP package that make sense (to me at least) and is low overhead. I'm not wanting something that pings dozens of hosts, but it'd be nice to hit the big players like Yahoo, Google, MSN, AOL, Bloglines. Thanks in advance.

Hi there

Thanks for the suggestion here!

I am going to add this to our feature request list for you as I don't think it's something we have talked about before.

Let me know if there is anything else I can add to it for you. There is of course, no set timeframe for when each feature will be implemented, but we keep track of it all so feel free to put in anymore requests you have [:)].

Do you mind explaining what exactly is RSS ping? I've been involved with RSS / Podcasts projects for numerous sports/news sites over the last few years but haven't come across this term.

Once the AM 2.1 is released (allowing you to run outside scripts on a post publish) you should be able to whip up a small script to do that if you have a recent edition PHP and the module XML-RPC installed.

Then you could set the publish rule to execute the script whenver a new article is added.
