RSD Support

Yes, another blog change :). I was actually going to implement this yesterday, but the version was about to be updated so I decided to wait until today.
What is it? RSD – or “Really Simple Discovery”. Basically Joe Blogger puts a special XML file in his base directory, which says what blogging tool he/she is using, and what its XML:RPC URL is. That way it makes it easier for other software to communicate with the blogging tool.
Ben Hammersley, one of the more famous bloggers and am occasional Guardian columnist, lets you know how to implement it into Movable Type and the official document is available at Archipelago. The next Movable Type release will have RSD support as standard, as Mena Trott explains.
