Introducing Aeon Timeline Version 1.1

If you have visited launched Aeon Timeline or visited our website in the past 24 hours, you may have noticed that version 1.1 has just been released.

Aeon Timeline version 1.1 is free for all existing Aeon Timeline customers. This is a significant update that provides the following new functionality.

A few highlights:

  • External Links: Add links to files stored externally from the timeline. Display images directly on the timeline. Open any linked file from directly inside Aeon Timeline using QuickLook or their default application. Use Aeon Timeline as a central hub for other time related information and research.
  • New Timeline Styles: Version 1.1 introduces new timeline styles to go along with the existing standard date/time format. Use year-only calendars spanning anything from centuries to millions of years. Use relative formats to create timeline events that occur on dates like “Monday, Week 5″ or “Day 4, 11:00am”. Use the time-only format to create short-duration timelines for movie planning or emergency response.
  • Event Precision and Duration: Decide what precision to use for each event individually.Omit time of day, day of month, or month of year. Directly enter a duration for an event instead of always calculating an end date.
  • Printing and Exporting: Image exporting has been improved, and printing has been added, so you can capture exactly what is displayed on the screen.

Version 1.1: How long is that…?

As I have mentioned briefly, I am currently working on Aeon Timeline version 1.1 for Mac, which will bring Aeon Timeline up to the level I want it to reach before I write a feature-parity version for Windows. Version 1.1 will be out before the end of the year, with a Windows version to hopefully follow some time next year.

Aeon Timeline is intended to aid creativity and data analysis, and to achieve this aim, it is important that users spend their time thinking about their content rather than the application they use to create it. This means Aeon Timeline needs a clean, easy, intuitive user interface.
