Aeon Timeline 0.9.7 (Extended Expiry), New Website, Approximate Release Date

New Release

Aeon Timeline version 0.9.7 is now available for download (http://www.scribblecode.com). Version 0.9.7 fixes a couple of minor bugs, and extends the expiry date to the end of May.

Barring any significant bugs, this will be the final beta release before the official commercial release of the product.

There are a number of very good suggestions that have been pushed to the post-1.0 list, and I intend to implement many of them after the commercial release, but after more than three years of work, I need to draw the beta period to a close and actually get some return on all of the time  I have invested.

Aeon Timeline supports automatic updates, which means you will be notified whenever an update is available, and able to download it directly within the program. If the program does not alert you automatically, you can choose ‘Check for Updates…’ from the Aeon Timeline menu.

Alternatively, you can download the latest version of the application by clicking on the Download link at the top of our new website (link below).

New Website

I have just uploaded the new Scribble Code website, which you can view at http://www.scribblecode.com

Aside from finally having a website that properly describes Aeon Timeline, and may entice a few more downloads with some videos, feature lists and screenshots, this site will now be the place where download links and purchase information will be available.

My thanks to Mark Russell for helping to put the website together. He has a link at the bottom of that site if you wish to click through to see his other work.

Release Date

Everything is in line for the official release now. I have done the licensing code, I have the website setup, etc. However, I am going on a short holiday later in the month, during which time I will have limited access to the internet.

I didn’t want this time to correspond with the first few weeks after I have released the application, as I anticipate a reasonably large number of technical support requests in the first few weeks after launch.

For that reason, I am delaying the release until after my holiday has finished.

This means that the official release will take place in the second half of May or early June. I will post further information here once a release date has been confirmed.

Thanks very much to everyone for their support so far. I am looking forward to finally releasing this software!
