It would be more convenient if you added some method (e.g. "get_updated_date" or something like) to make it possible to obtain the value of ATOM's "updated" field. Currently you have to call get_item_tags('http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom',
'updated') and it doesn't look very nice...
This was added in 0af1d3b and will be released in 1.3
