Which version of RSS to use?

Hi, all.

I've got a Web page where I track news articles on a certain subject. I've set up an RSS feed to go with it. All I really need for each item is a headline, link, paper and date (which can go in description), and the date I posted it (pubdate). It looks like RSS 2.0 will do everything I need. But I notice some of the cool kids use RSS 1.0 (which is actually more complicated that 2.0, but that's another whole megilla).

Any ideas? Post a comment here or send me a comment via


Lest anyone else was breathlessly awaiting an answer to this question: There's a nice chart of RSS versions at html. For my app, I went with RSS 2.0.
