which webservices are available in which version of SharePoint

We are working on a client application, which required to access data from SharePoint too. The best way to do that is to consume webservices exposed by SharePoint. While consuming them, we wanted to make sure which services are available in which version. We tried to find any matrix for that, but could not find one. So I thought of building it myself, so that others can reference it.

This matrix is based on a information available on MSDN, however this is not a final. I will dig more and will add any missing services, which are not fully documented elsewhere.
