Hey Wolfthera, I'd like to help with this if possible. Is this the only page that needs to be updated? I'd be happy to write about the new features as of 4.1 and edit what's already there.

Here are some updated screenshots of the new UI changes that I just prepared:

(^^This is the latest Timeline docker, annotated. I have this one as a .kra, if that's of any use or changes need to be made. The labels are different than the current ones, so it's not a drop-in replacement, but some of that stuff could use editing anyway.^^)

(^^This is the new Insert Keyframes dialog, which is used when animators want to insert multiple keyframes or columns.^^)

Also, feel free to assign me to this task if that's helpful.

Yes, that is correct.

If you want to take a stab at it, the contributor's manual (readme) has instructions on how to contribute to sphinx. You can also write up the text here, in which case I'll port it.

It's quite a bit of information that the timeline docker that can do, so I would suggest first focussing on the dry functionality before you try focussing on when to use that functionality.

Sounds good. I'll follow the guide.

Will do! Thanks.
