This morning, Kiyonori Nagasaki noticed that one of the remote API’s used by the Neatline 1.x releases went offline, which had the effect of breaking exhibits that included the SIMILE Timeline widget. To fix this, we just posted a 1.1.3 maintenance release that patches up the timeline problem and also includes a couple of other…. More.
[Cross-posted with dclure.org] Neatline 2.0 makes it possible to work with really large collections of records – as many as about 1,000,000 in a single exhibit. This level of scalability opens up the door to a whole range of projects that would have been impossible with the first version of Neatline, but it also introduces…. More.
