Google Docs scripting now available for non-Enterprise/Education users

Looks like scripting for gDocs is finally open to users who aren’t lucky enough to have access to the Enterprise or Education versions.

Basically the scripting language (javascript) ties into spreadsheets (only for now I think) and allows you to do funky stuff like: sending emails, updating contacts, look for stock prices (although the XML functions do this), and modify calendars etc…

A big boon for people who love scripting, but aren’t really into desktop office apps (although Zoho Office does have macros)
