T2 is well underway. I'm going to be a bit conservative about posting screenshots of new features until I am ready to release it, but I wanted to show a timeline with a gradient fill in the background.
Besides gradients, T2 will also allow a transparent background which will be cool for exporting timelines as PDF. The transparent background will allow the chart to be composited with other media. For example, a timeline could be composited over a video for a documentary or used over an interesting background in a Keynote presentation.
It is a small upgrade from a technical perspective, but should allow users a lot more flexibility.
