The Fusion Tables team regularly updates the Fusion Tables API with new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements. Updates are listed by date.

March 23, 2012
- Fusion Tables API 1.0 has added support for the querying and managing of rows using SQL statements. See the revised "Getting Started" and "Using the API" documentation for details. Developers can choose either .csv or .json as the format for returned data.
March 8, 2012
- Fusion Tables has dropped support for the numeric table ids in Table API V1. Requests to and responses from the Table API will now only accept and return encrypted table ids. This means anywhere a table id is used in the Table API, the encrypted table id must be provided instead of the numeric table id (example: requesting the styles of a table). Any time a table id is returned from the Table API, the encrypted table id will be returned instead of the numeric table id (examples: creating a table, listing tables). The Trusted Testers API Users Group announcement provides some examples of how this may affect your code.
