Creating timelines in Confluence

I am looking for a way to create timelines on my wiki pages. The type of timelines that I am interested in creating are neither project nor application related, but are related to either past historical or possible future events. Some of the timelines cover a timespan of a day, some a week, some a year, some a lifetime, and some thousands of years. Because they are historically related, I need the timeline feature to be dynamic in it's ability to display the events. The ability to display a break somewhere in the middle of the timeline (signifying a significant period of time, perhaps by displaying an ellipsis) and the ability to zoom in on a defined timespan on the timeline would be very useful.

I am currently using an older version of Confluence (v3.0) but am looking to upgrade as soon as I get my new hardware setup and configured.

Does such a feature currently exist either in the core features of Confluence or in an add-on? If not, by chance is anyone at Atlassian familiar with any other software that provides these features? If so, maybe I could persuade them to create an Atlassian add-on.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Take a look at Roadmap Planner Macro available for the new version of Confluence.

I'm looking for the same type of plugin to track "what version released when" over the last 10 years, but I found the Roadmap planner won't handle timelines longer than 5 years.

I am new to jira and would like to create a timeline with roadmap-planner. Where do i go to get started?
