Appears to have been developed recently.

Message from the developer:

“For the benefit of any Linux users who might come this way, I just released a single-pane outliner for Linux called Hiero. I don’t know how useful it will be to someone writing a book exactly as I haven’t done much testing of outlines that large (though the modest testing I did do in order to determine size limits did seem to indicate that it would work fine). If anyone’s interested, it can be found on my new blog, Productive Penguin.”

A shame this isn’t for Windows (or also for Windows).

I finally had a chance to download and test. I’m deeply appreciative of programmers who create tools for the rest of us, and I’ve shared a more extensive version of my comments with him on his site. In brief, though, I found the user interface for creating “nodes” very balky. Everything is entered in a text box discrete from the outline, and requires a command to start, erase placeholder text, and save. After that, it’s a pretty decent outliner, though, and I’m hopeful that it will get even better over time. I’m certainly encouraged to see the project.
