|Tablet resolution teaser of the new Timeline controls!|
The Timeline was one of the first features that I implemented in the API (back when I started migrating from the legacy webapp to the public API) and, accordingly, it's a hot mess in both places. Long story short, most of what I've been working on has been clean-up and refactor type stuff, meant to give me what I need on the back end to bring the UI/UX up to current standards.
If you are interested in the gory details, the ticket is here.
If you are not interested in the gory details but you would like a preview of how the new controls are going to look and work, please enjoy the animated GIF feature demo in this post.
Finally, it is still too soon for me to commit to a date/time for when I think the new Timeline will be production-ready, but I am pretty confident that I'll get it in before the end of the month.
Thanks for using the Manager!
