Version 1.0.0 released

Released on 30 September 2013.

After about 4.5 years in development, timeline 1.0.0 is released. This is the
first time we increment the x-component of the version number
(:ref:label-version-number). The main reason for doing so is that timeline
can no longer read files produced with timeline versions before 0.10.0
(released over 3 years ago).

The other big thing in 1.0.0 is that the experimental support for dates before
year 0 is no longer experimental. We have rewritten large parts of the date
handling partly to be able to support BC dates in a better way.... read more

Status update

During the summer, we have been working on the next release of timeline which will be version 1.0.0. The reason why we increase the first component of the version number is because we drop support for the very first timeline file format. It was last used in version 0.9.0. If you have been using a later version, you won't notice any change.

The other big thing in the 1.0.0 release is that the experimental support for dates before year 0 is no longer experimental. We have rewritten large parts of the date handling partly to be able to support BC dates in a better way. Any feedback on this change is appreciated.
