New Version, New Features

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

I have just released the sixth update to Bee Docs Timeline since the release of version 2 less than twelve weeks ago. For each update, my goal is to get a few bugs fixed based on customer feedback as well as some new features.

Two of the most exciting new features in this new version (2.0.6) are:

  • RSS / Atom Feed Import - Timeline your favorite blog or news page!
  • Drag and Drop Chart Backgrounds

There are also other new features including minimum page spanning, improvements to bulk edit, and more. Be sure to read the release notes for a complete list of changes.

I recorded a short video to demonstrate some of the new features. Check it out and let me know if it would be helpful to have videos like this for future releases:

To get the new version, you can download it from the BEEDOCS website or Bee Docs' Timeline should prompt you to update next time you launch it.

Hi! I know I'm coming to the party a little late, but I just purchased your program recently, and I am enjoying it immensely (doing an extensive project about roman history).

If I may make a suggestion: When printing the timeline, it cuts off some events at the page break, making a decent print of a timeline nearly impossible (at least, from my experience). Is there a way to autoformat the timeline so it somehow compresses or shifts the events so they fall within the page?

i have no idea if what I'm asking for is difficult, but I figured I'd toss it out there, as it will eventually be pretty important to my project to have a printed version.

Thanks! And keep up the great work,

Adam, the videos are great and very useful for inspiring me as a new user of your software.
Thanks and keep up the good work.

I just bought Timeline from MacUpdate's daily promo on a whim and I think it's cool! I'm a yearbook advisor for a high school and I can easily see using this as a chart of activities, sporting events, student histories, etc. Beyond that, applying it to other areas of the curriculum is a no-brainer.

I just thought of one - my syllabus and curriculum for the semester!

Here's my suggestion - web export! Complete with links on each timeline item (handy if you're using the RSS feed to populate the timeline, but could be used for other things). Then you could post the timeline to a blog, a webpage, or if you're an educator, your moodle page.

Keep up the good work!

I just integrated 12 different iCal agenda's into 1 timeline! Great! 250 events on my wall at the office on 1 big roll of paper of 4,5 metres by 1 metres.

I ve one desire. Would it be possible to show the different colors of the iCal agenda's in the Timeline in a small box.

Thanks and keep up!
