Timelog version 2017 (6.1)
This is the latest version with new updates in specific reports and MVC.

The update consists of denomination of unit types so that e.g. hours can be shown alongside days. Which makes it more useful when importing into salary systems:
In the export the one column is split into two: “Reg.” and “Unit type”:
To further help the salary responsible, two new radio buttons are included:
"Show in registered format"(default) and "Show in hours".
The info icon next to Show in hours correctly points out:
"Codes in other formats than hours will not be shown. This includes supplement codes in count and yes/no formats"
This release also focuses on getting more parts into MVC technology.
MVC in short: [..]is a software architectural pattern commonly used for developing user interfaces that divides an application into three interconnected parts. […]
The MVC design pattern decouples these major components allowing for efficient code reuse and parallel development.” (source Wikipedia)
