I'm starting to implement requesting question and user activity in my framework, but the new 1.1 API documentation doesn't seem to indicate what the possible return values are for the fields any more.

Where can I go to find this information? (Specifically, I'm looking for the possible return values to the timeline_type and action keys) I realize that I can just make a bunch of requests and try and figure this out myself, but this should be documented somewhere...

Take a look at http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/usage/enumerations ; which is now linked from the front page of the documentation as well.

Its very simplistic, but one of the nice behind the scenes changes in 1.1 was making it a lot easier for me to update the documentation. Expect some better documentation on returned values in the not incredibly distance future.
