This release is the debut of the much-anticipated timeline feature. Events can be displayed on the timeline and optionally associated with thoughts and links. Open the timeline via View > Timeline. The features and UI of the timeline and events system are briefly documented below in the release notes.

Note: Bidirectional Google Calendar sync and alerts/notifications are being implemented but are not included in this release.

Also included in this release are several important fixes to the notes editor.
