1.0 - 18/03/2012
First full, completed version. Includes basic interactivity: opacity of year's column changes when mouse hovers over them. If there's contextual information for that year, it also shows/hides it depending of mouse activity.

0.5 - 10/03/2012
First version published. Includes the timeline, with all the data, no interactivity. Informational text is illegible. Each currency title is a link as well.


- Include contextual information in currencies' timeline area: Name, type of currency, cause of disappearance.
- Add interactivity to that contextual information via tooltip script: onmouseover/out shows/hides the information.
