The timeline feature is really nice, but I'm thinking of some improvements :)
It would be great to be able to use the keyboard (eg. right/left arrows to move the cursor, space for selection) to make the selection in the timeline view.
Also some more minor things :
* the number of items is alone at the right without any description. Maybe one could add "xxx items."
* I think it would be better to display the date in reverse order, eg :
2007 May 09, Wednesday
* when in week view, it would be great to also add dates (eg 18-24)
Finally, for usuability reasons, it would help beginners to have some help text in the right panel when there's no selection (a bit like the welcome page you have when you click on albums).

-1 date should follow system wide locale

+1 week number is very abstract thing
I will add the keyboard feature, but we can't use right/left arrows and the space buttons as they are already used in album view, I think we can use J/K to traverse in the timeline without a need for a third button (space) for selection. Also I will add the word items after the number of images, and the range of days for the week.
One last thing, can you elaborate more on what to add in the right panel?
