The only thing that's certain is that 0.3 will not be the final
version! If I read things right, this version will be strongly
deprecated once 1.0 comes out.

The Atom WG charter has format spec last call in March, final in April
(same for the protocol/API, btw). Right now if I had any live systems
I'd probably hold off changing until Atom 1.0, but would try and work
from the current spec draft for offline development (see [1]).

Note that material under discussion right now is likely to impact any
mapping - the existing extensibility-related proposals are all in
focus on the issue list [2], and the chair has called "last orders" on
this facet, the result being two new proposals appearing in the past
few days: AtomAsRDF [3] (what it says) and PaceExtensionConstruct [4]
which offers a more general purpose structural interpretation, though
was also prompted by a desire for RDF compatibility.

Cheers,
Danny.
