Excellent news, Harlan. Thanks for the update.

I would like the ability to import date/time data. Currently, it's quite easy to import Thought data as a text file. How would this work with Event data? Likewise, copying Event data using something like the current "Copy as Text Outline" for selected Thoughts.

As a daily user, I'm excited about the possibility of the timeline, but just waiting for Google Calendar integration. Just to verify, this is still coming, right? Until that happens, I'd just be playing around with the timeline rather than actually using it in my work. I only mention this because I'd like to be helpful and involved in the beta process, but I've learned the hard way that using multiple calendars can have unintended consequences. What I'm hoping for is synchronization with Google Calendar, or iCal which can then do the syncing just the same. Thanks. 
Notes Indicator Missing (#3587)
I just did a little sleuthing, and the notes indicators appear in my main brain. I didn't notice they were missing until I copied a large branch of that brain and pasted it into a new brain. All the thoughts, attachments, and notes appear in the new brain, just no note indicators. 

In order to test for 8 vs 9 notes. I copied another section of my main brain with older notes, plus one newer note, into a new brain. You are correct. The newer note has an indicator, the older ones don't. Hope this helps.
Notes Indicator Missing (#3587)
The notes icon is missing in .157. My preferences are set correctly. No change after restart, or toggling the pref.
Where is the "Report"-button on the top right side?
I like the right-click option that quickly shows Timeline and Report. I also appreciate the recently modified thoughts report. It is a great tool to get back on track. It would be fine, imho, if it appeared as a right-click on the plex option as well, but would also make sense if it fell within the Report section.
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
Quote: I'm curious now: Is it slow for all searches or just for specific terms?

Just specific terms, but it does seem to have to do with the word length, i.e. a single short word is nearly instant, a long word can take an indeterminate and inconsistently long time.

Quote: Does the searching for the same term return at different speeds in different brains?

Same word, different speeds on different machines. If you have a test brain you'd like me to try on two different machines, I'd be happy to give it a go for you.  
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
Here are the results:

Terminal search with - mdfind -onlyin /Users/danlandrum/Documents/Brains/U01/B01 "referendum" - results are immediate.
Searching for "referendum" in TB9 .151 took 24 seconds on my iMac Retina 5k, but was almost instant on my MacBook Pro with the same brain.

I wonder if this is still something to do with performance on the 5k iMac?

Manual download of b152?
Check for update still seeing 151 as the latest release on the alpha channel for me, too.
Search for Notes and Attachments very, very slow (#3440, #3495, #3517 and #3518)
It takes 7 or 8 seconds on my Brain before populating the list. Clearing and retyping the same word does not speed it up. I'm looking to find the single word "referendum." The result is nine hits, 3 being notes, 6 pdfs. They all appear at the same moment, with no indication that anything is happening. The kicker is that sometimes it returns nothing at all, and I don't know if I should keep waiting, or try another search term. If I just wait, the list will sometimes populate after a protracted time, guessing 30 seconds or more. Attaching log.

Added -  I thought I'd try the same search in Spotlight, and the top of the list indicated "Indexing . . .." Could something in TheBrain have triggered an index?

Consistent Text Selection Error in Notes Pane (#2694)
To reveal:

click a thought with a note, but don't click in the notes pane yet
click and drag on some text
the text will be highlighted as expected, but then be immediately deselected

This has been happening for a while but I keep forgetting to write it up. It is especially noticeable if you are trying to copy and paste text into another window, or even the timeline which is what I was trying to do this morning with event dates and text. The expected behavior is that the text will remain selected and thus be available for copy or cut. At minimum, if it isn't really going to select unless I click in the notes pain first, then the text should not be selectable.
9.0.149 - Last Successful Sync showing never synced (#3460 and #3461)
Yay! It's working again this morning. Thank you.
