A good example of a project that needs this feature is Adium. It's timeline page frequently weighs in at several hundred KB for 30 days of changes. One of the Adium developers suggested that using a calendar widget to select the viewable range of dates on the timeline would be a good idea. By default it's probably sensible to display the last 7 days of changes, though it may be useful to make this configurable.

Live from the IrcChannel:

bdash>  one of the Adium developers suggested having a "calendar"-style
        timeline view showing todays date by default but making it easy to
        view previous days
cmlenz> hmm, just today is not really helpful for many less active projects
clmenz> maybe weekly?	
bdash>  well, that side of things could be configurable 
bdash>  7 days on Adium is still 80KB worth

Still no previous and next paging support for the timeline, but the TracIni does have the default_daysback setting for trac.ini where you can set the default number of days displayed in the Timeline, in days. (since 0.9.)

You can also specific choose to "View changes from" <date>, so you can move back in history as far as needed.

Milestone: 1.00.11
Owner: changed from Jonas Borgström to Christian Boos

Maybe we could simply add a link at the bottom of the Timeline, for getting the next period of default_daysback days, so that when one has actually looked at all the information present in the Timeline, and wants to see more, one can easily do so.

Next thing would be a nifty XHR-datepicker ?

I'm in favor of a link at the bottom. Moving back in history would be the most common activity. If adding that link, it should be straightforward to add a "forward" link as well.

#3359 also requested a way to page through the timeline, albeit in a slightly different way.
