Applications that use the Versions feature.

Does anything besides iWork use this? It's been extremely useful to me lately, so I was curious why it doesn't seem to be in more apps. Sorry if there is a another thread on this, I tried to search on here and on google and I'm pretty sure the use of the word versions gets me a lot of things I'm not looking for.

There are many apps that use Versions. I also find it useful, and I'm unsure as to why so many people dislike it so much.

Something I've noticed whilst using Versions, and which I haven't seen mentioned anywhere, is that in the version history browser, it merges the version info of the file you're editing with any copies available on an attached Time Machine backup (and colour-codes according to source).

Apps that I have that employ Versions include Pixelmator, CodeRunner and iA Writer.

Didn't know that, also awesome. Great to know that some other apps are using it, I really don't see how someone could dislike the feature.
