#googledev #googleappsscript

Four more Apps Script services have graduated from experimental: Charts, Gmail, Maps and Properties. The blog post links to docs and good tutorials for each of these.

Another recent, extremely helpful addition to Apps Script is the ability to cancel a running script from the script editor. You can find this and other recent features and fixes in the release notes: http://code.google.com/googleapps/appsscript/release_notes.html
