Documents List API now supports more file types

We are happy to announce that we have recently launched support for creating and managing revisions for arbitrary file types in the Documents List API. Prior to this, the Documents List API only allowed developers to create and query revisions of Google Docs files.

This opens up the API for a number of exciting use cases. For example, a developer could use Google Docs as the cloud-based back-end for a content-management system with versioning. Another possibility would be for developers to provide file history or file playback in their sync clients.

Please note, however, that while all users can use the API to query and manage revisions, currently only Google Apps Premier users can upload arbitrary file types via the API. All users are still able to upload arbitrary files types via the Google Docs web interface.

For more information on how to use this new feature, please see the updated release notes and updated documentation.
