[swift-users] RSS feed for the Swift.org blog not working

As you will have noted in my prior response, the atom.xml includes the blog post from yesterday that announced Swift 4.0 release. So clearly the posts are included and there is something failing in your client. Please investigate further.

The posts appear to be listed in ascending date order (i.e. more recent ones are at the bottom). If your client is assuming they are in descending order, and only showing you the first N posts, then you might have this behaviour. For example:

$ grep title atom.xml
  <title type="text" xml:lang="en">Swift.org</title>
    <title>The Swift.org Blog</title>
    <title>The Swift Linux Port</title>
    <title>Swift 3 API Design Guidelines</title>
