Someone posted the link on the Textkit forum, passing it on without having had a chance to read it myself.

Not that recent, it's 2009. I've read it, and it's generally good but it may be too formal for some. It takes a fairly common approach to aspect in contemporary linguistics (Klein) and integrates it with Discourse Representation Theory.

Recent in scholarly terms usually means anytime in the last 50 years or so... :D

So would you say it's generally worth it or are there better ways to spend our time if we want to learn more about contemporary views on aspect?

Well, I found it helpful when I read it, but I enjoy reading that stuff and your mileage may vary. A summary of the most useful parts of her analysis has been condensed into a journal article with Markus Egg here: Variety in Ancient Greek aspect interpretation (2012). Read that instead (or first).
