  • Additional JSON output support.
  • Localization (ca,de,el,en,eo,es,fr,ja,la,nb,pl,uk).
  • Autodiscovery support.
  • Microformats friendly (outputs hCard, hCalendar, adr, geo).
  • Extracts FOAF data from XHTML RDFa 1.0.
  • Nice-looking.
  • Simple and fast (uses 48h local caching).

In addition, the project's homepage has a new look:

Pretty URIs

I have made some URIs tweaks on my home page to conform more to, what is called, "pretty URIs", which follows these guidelines:

  • use names short and easy to type and remember
  • use names that visualize the site structure
  • make names persistent
  • hide language and mechanism implementation
  • choose simple domain name if possible

See also the classic Cool URIs don't change.

And by the way, is now alive.
