It was easier to navigate a full year of complete agenda weeks. Its a shame I'm the only one to have noticed how handy the (L) Timeline feature is ;-) Its output was (is) nice and clean. It was the first thing I tried when I was looking to set up an appointment several months down the road. I suppose I could do my own "recurrences" by hand.

Can you be more specific on what is so handy about the timeline format, that you do not get in the agenda?  Is it only the notice about the left-out days?  Or other things as well?
