[edit] Feeds

This wiki is one of the major communications channels from innovaphone to partners. Partners should thus stay up-to-date to with its content. However, monitoring a web site for updates can be quite time consuming. RSS feeds are a great way to do this. Here is how it works.

MediaWiki (upon which inno-wiki is built), features various RSS feeds. A news feed can be thought of as a channel where new information is provided regularly and in a coordinated fashion. These pieces of information (commonly known as "articles") can be accessed by means of web browsers and/or external programs known as "feed readers" or "aggregators".

Both Firefox and Internet Explorer support the inno-wiki feeds.

In addition to that, there is a whole bunch of feed readers available, most are for free. One that we at innovaphone found particularly useful is RssPopper. It retrieves feed articles and inserts them into Outlook or OutlookExpress email folders.

inno-wiki supports a powerful mechanism to customize RSS feeds. Sometimes, wiki itself will suggest a feed. Watch out for entries like "RSS | Atom" in the toolbox on the lower left. However, depending on the type of information you are interested in, you may want to try the following:

[edit] News

This feed shows mainly release announcements.

[edit] Problem Alerts

This feed includes information that you probably would like to have known before when you run into problems. You should really have it subscribed.

[edit] New Articles

All new articles, regardless of their type

[edit] Changed Articles

All updated articles, regardless of their type

[edit] Articles created by non-innovaphone users

[edit] Articles changed by non-innovaphone users

[edit] inno-wiki Feed List as OPML

Many RSS feed readers can import OPML files that include lists of feeds to subscribe to. For your convenience, here is one (you need to unzip it first): For example, in Thunderbird, you would create an RSS Account, then add Add subscription and Import the opml.

[edit] The Roadmap

There is one article of utmost importance to many of you: the development roadmap. If the information provided by our RSS feeds is too much to you, you may consider to watch this specific article. This will make sure you get a reminder email with link whenever it changes. Watching is available for any wiki article on the little top-right tab above the article text.
