As far as I know, currently the only way to view and analize time between two events is in a funnel. However, there is no convenient way to compare how the timings change over time or between new releases. Also it's not possible to view 90th percentile or so and compare it to previous period.

Another great idea, @Ainius!

While we talk about adding this to the roadmap, I wanted to offer you another potential fix for the time being.

With Mixpanel, you can use a timeEvent call to track sessions. Using this method, Mixpanel will by default send an event property called “duration” with the session-end event, the value of which will be the length of time from the session start event to session end event, in seconds.

If you have two known events, and want to monitor the time between the two and how it changes over time, you could do this with the duration property from this timeEvent method and graphing it over time with the Insights report.
