full-text feeds

From now on, RSS feeds which employ content:encoded to store full text of their entries should be syndicated properly by LiveJournal; this means that the syndicated accounts for those feeds will hold the complete entries rather than just links to those entries on the weblog's site.

As an example, belledejouruk, the syndicated account for a rather popular weblog, Bell de Jour: Diary of a London Call Girl, used to contain just the links to new entries as they appeared; now it has full text of the entries.

The Volokh Conspiracy is an influential collaborative political/current-affairs weblog with emphasis on law. volokh remains a "headline feed", with titles and links only. However, volokh_full now carries the full text feed of the Conspiracy.

There're probably other examples of full-text feeds which didn't work before, but should be working now.
