Lately I have gotten back into using RSS feeds and Cemetech's Latest Posts and News Headlines feeds are excellent, but the Latest Uploads feed is lacking…
While it provides the filename, timestamp, and username in the header section, they could also be included in the description as seen in the forum feed with the timestamp and username. The path to the file is rather important as it tells me whether I care about the file in question. It is also unclear whether the file is an update of an existing file, or a new upload.

The list for easy parsing:
  • Filename+path, timestamp, username, and possible filesize in the description
  • Whether the upload it actually a new file or an update to an existing file
  • Any screenshots

Perhaps something like this
Code:
[Update/Upload]: [filename]
Author: [username]
Accepted: [timestamp]
Path: [pathtofile]

[description]

[screenshots]
The path could also be included in the title in the same format as the forum feed as TI84+CE Asm :: HexaEdit CE or something similar.

As soon as I started this post my rss reader decided that there were no latest uploads in the feed :/
Also, each feed seems to be generated in an entirely different format from the others which I thought was weird.
*quietly makes some changes* They'll be fully available on the site in a few hours.

Because they're generated by entirely different software (if you compare posts with news or uploads)!
