  8. * Version 9.2
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  11. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  12. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  13. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  14. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  15. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  16. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  17. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  18. unique, Noweb reference.

  44. *** Change ~org-structure-template-alist~ value
  45. With the new template expansion mechanism (see
  46. [[*~org-insert-structure-template~]]), the variable changed its data type.
  47. See docstring for details.
  48. *** Change ~org-set-effort~ signature
  49. See docstring for details.
  50. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  51. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  52. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  53. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  54. examples:
  55. #+begin_example
  56. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  57. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  58. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  59. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  60. #+end_example
  61. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  62. #+begin_example
  63. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  64. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  65. #+end_example
  66. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  67. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  68. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  69. aligning.
  70. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  71. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  72. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  73. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  74. #+END_EXAMPLE
  75. ** New features
  76. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  77. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  78. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  79. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  80. manual for details.
  81. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  82. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  83. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  84. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  85. ,* Top [1/2]
  86. ,** DONE Completed
  87. ,** TODO Working
  88. #+END_SRC
  89. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  90. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  91. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  92. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  93. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  94. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  95. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  96. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  97. its previous state.
  98. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  99. size.
  100. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  101. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  102. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  103. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  104. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  105. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  106. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  107. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  108. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  109. prop
  110. "0")))
  111. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  112. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  113. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  114. #+END_SRC
  115. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  116. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  117. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  118. ,* All shipments
  119. ,** Shipment 1
  120. :PROPERTIES:
  121. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  122. :Bananas: 4
  123. :END:
  124. ,** Shipment 2
  125. :PROPERTIES:
  126. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  127. :BANANAS: 7
  128. :END:
  129. #+END_SRC
  130. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  131. you should expect to see something like:
  132. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  133. |-----------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  134. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  135. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  136. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  137. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  138. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  139. #+END_EXAMPLE
  140. ** New functions
  141. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  142. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  143. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  144. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  145. See docstring for details.
  146. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  147. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  148. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  149. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  150. See docstring for details.
  151. ** Removed functions
  152. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  153. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  154. ** Removed variables
  155. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  156. ** Miscellaneous
  157. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  158. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  159. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  160. reciprocal.
  161. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  162. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  163. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  164. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  165. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  166. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  167. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  168. * Version 9.1
  169. ** Incompatible changes
  170. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  171. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  172. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  173. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  174. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  175. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  176. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  177. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  178. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  179. accordingly.
  180. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  181. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  182. is to turn, e.g.,
  183. : (file (sexp))
  184. into
  185. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  186. *** Deleted contributed packages
  187. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  188. from the contrib/ directory.
  189. You can now find them here :
  190. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  191. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  192. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  193. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  194. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  195. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  196. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  197. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  198. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  199. changes to site-map generation.
  200. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  201. to the following
  202. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  203. (lambda (entry style project)
  204. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  205. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  206. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  207. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  208. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  209. (t entry)))
  210. #+END_SRC
  211. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  212. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  213. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  214. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  215. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  216. list as their first argument.
  217. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  218. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  219. See docstring for details.
  220. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  221. See docstring for changes.
  222. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  223. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  224. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  225. details.
  226. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  227. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  228. keywords.
  229. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  230. It used to return nil.
  231. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  232. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  233. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  234. MELPA repository.
  235. ** New features
  236. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  237. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  238. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  239. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  240. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  241. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  242. specified as in "Europe/London".
  243. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  244. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  245. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  246. directory to old, ID based one.
  247. *** New Org duration library
  248. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  249. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  250. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  251. docstrings.
  252. *** Agenda
  253. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  254. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  255. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  256. See docstring for details.
  257. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  258. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  259. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  260. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  261. the default setting.
  262. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  263. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  264. directories in published site-maps.
  265. *** Babel
  266. **** Scheme: support for tables
  267. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  268. This new custom option allows to use a empty list or null symbol to
  269. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  270. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  271. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  272. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  273. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  274. with the content to be added.
  275. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  276. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  277. before this let form.
  278. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  279. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  280. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  281. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  282. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  283. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  284. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  285. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  286. window/buffer.
  287. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  288. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  289. option in the code block's header like this:
  290. #+begin_example
  291. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  292. (dotimes [n 10]
  293. (println n ".")
  294. (Thread/sleep 500))
  295. ,#+END_SRC
  296. #+end_example
  297. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  298. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  299. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  300. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  301. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  302. =#+RESULTS= section.
  303. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  304. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  305. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  306. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  307. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  308. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  309. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  310. Maxima src blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  311. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  312. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  313. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  314. results in a beamer presentation.
  315. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  316. [[http://plantuml.com/][Plantuml]] source blocks now support the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/prologue.html#prologue][~:prologue~]], [[https://orgmode.org/manual/epilogue.html#epilogue][~:epilogue~]] and
  317. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  318. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  319. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  320. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  321. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  322. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  323. #+begin_example
  324. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  325. Select * From Users
  326. Where clue > 0
  327. ,#+END_SRC
  328. #+end_example
  329. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  330. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  331. against HP Vertica.
  332. More information on =vsql= can be found here: [[https://my.vertica.com/docs/7.2.x/HTML/index.htm#Authoring/ConnectingToHPVertica/vsql/UsingVsql.htm][my.vertica.com]]
  333. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  334. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  335. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  336. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  337. ,#+END_SRC
  338. #+END_EXAMPLE
  339. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  340. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  341. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  342. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  343. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  344. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  345. using ~:namespaces~:
  346. #+begin_example
  347. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  348. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  349. ,#+END_SRC
  350. #+end_example
  351. **** Support for Vala language
  352. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  353. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  354. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  355. Support for [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] does not exist yet, also there is no [[https://orgmode.org/manual/session.html#session][~:session~]]
  356. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  357. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  358. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  359. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  360. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  361. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  362. *** Export
  363. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  364. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  365. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  366. contents, are now supported.
  367. **** Add Slovenian translations
  368. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  369. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  370. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  371. details.
  372. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  373. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  374. manual for details.
  375. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  376. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  377. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  378. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  379. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  380. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  381. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  382. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  383. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  384. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  385. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  386. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  387. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  388. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  389. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  390. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  391. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  392. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  393. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  394. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  395. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  396. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  397. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  398. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  399. to the document.
  400. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  401. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  402. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  403. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  404. ~uniquify.el~.
  405. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  406. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  407. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  408. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  409. to ~org-file-contents~.
  410. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  411. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  412. that file cache.
  413. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  414. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  415. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  416. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  417. ** Removed functions
  418. *** Org Timeline
  419. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  420. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  421. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  422. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  423. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  424. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  425. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  426. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  427. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  428. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  429. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  430. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  431. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  432. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  433. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  434. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  435. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  436. ** Removed options
  437. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  438. For an equivalent to a ~nil~ value, set
  439. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  440. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to ~t~.
  441. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  442. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  443. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  444. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  445. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  446. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  447. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  448. equivalent to the removed format string.
  449. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  450. Setting it to a ~nil~ value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  451. keys).
  452. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  453. The variable is now a boolean.
  454. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  455. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  456. ** New functions
  457. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  458. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  459. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  460. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  461. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  462. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  463. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  464. ** Miscellaneous
  465. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  466. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  467. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  468. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  469. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  470. *** Allow multiple columns view
  471. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  472. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  473. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  474. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  475. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  476. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  477. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  478. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  479. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  480. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  481. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  482. used to describe the time span.
  483. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  484. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  485. far away in the future.
  486. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  487. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  488. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  489. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  490. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  491. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  492. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  493. See docstring for details.
  494. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  495. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  496. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  497. is now obsolete.
  498. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  499. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  500. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  501. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  502. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  503. *** Texinfo exports inline src blocks as ~@code{}~
  504. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  505. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  506. suitable as a default value.
  507. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  508. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  509. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  510. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are
  511. covered by rewrite rules.
  512. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  513. * Version 9.0
  514. ** Incompatible changes
  515. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  516. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  517. above is suggested.
  518. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  519. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  520. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  521. our mailing list.
  522. *** New syntax for export blocks
  523. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  524. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  525. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  526. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  527. ...
  528. ,#+END_EXPORT
  529. #+END_SRC
  530. instead of
  531. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  532. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  533. ...
  534. ,#+END_backend
  535. #+END_SRC
  536. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  537. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  538. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  539. #+END_SRC
  540. becomes
  541. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  542. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  543. #+END_SRC
  544. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  545. using previous syntax:
  546. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  547. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  548. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  549. (interactive)
  550. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  551. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  552. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  553. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  554. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  555. t)))
  556. (org-with-wide-buffer
  557. (goto-char (point-min))
  558. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  559. (save-excursion
  560. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  561. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  562. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  563. (save-excursion
  564. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  565. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  566. (forward-char)
  567. (insert "EXPORT")
  568. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  569. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  570. (let ((include-re
  571. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  572. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  573. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  574. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  575. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  576. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  577. #+END_SRC
  578. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  579. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  580. removed.
  581. *** Footnotes
  582. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  583. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  584. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  585. constructs are now unsupported.
  586. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  587. =[fn:N]=.
  588. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  589. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  590. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  591. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  592. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  593. exists.
  594. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  595. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  596. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  597. is straightforward. For example
  598. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  599. becomes
  600. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  601. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  602. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  603. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  604. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  605. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  606. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  607. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  608. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  609. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  610. such, the following
  611. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  612. ,* Headline
  613. :PROPERTIES:
  614. :exports: code
  615. :var: a=1 b=2
  616. :var+: c=3
  617. :END:
  618. #+END_EXAMPLE
  619. should be written instead
  620. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  621. ,* Headline
  622. :PROPERTIES:
  623. :header-args: :exports code
  624. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  625. :header-args+: :var c=3
  626. :END:
  627. #+END_EXAMPLE
  628. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  629. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  630. ** New features
  631. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  632. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  633. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  634. #+begin_example
  635. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  636. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  637. #+end_example
  638. Old-style links such as
  639. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  640. continue to be supported.
  641. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  642. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  643. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  644. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  645. lists.
  646. *** New Org linter library
  647. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  648. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  649. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  650. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  651. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  652. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  653. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  654. a HTML derived export back-end.
  655. *** Export
  656. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  657. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  658. details.
  659. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  660. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  661. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  662. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  663. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  664. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  665. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  666. for more details.
  667. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  668. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  669. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  670. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  671. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  672. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  673. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  674. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  675. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  676. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  677. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  678. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  679. used.
  680. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  681. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  682. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  683. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  684. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  685. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  686. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  687. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  688. ;; this will export with line number 20
  689. (message "This is line 21")
  690. ,#+END_SRC
  691. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  692. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  693. (message "This is line 32")
  694. ,#+END_SRC
  695. #+END_SRC
  696. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  697. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  698. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  699. export.
  700. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  701. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  702. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  703. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  704. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  705. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  706. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  707. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  708. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  709. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  710. *** Babel
  711. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  712. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  713. **** Support for Lua language
  714. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  715. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  716. **** Support for Stan language
  717. New ob-stan.el library.
  718. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  719. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  720. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  721. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  722. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  723. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  724. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  725. that does not end in ".stan".
  726. For more information and usage examples, visit
  727. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  728. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  729. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  730. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  731. mandatory):
  732. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  733. :engine oracle
  734. :dbhost <host.com>
  735. :dbport <1521>
  736. :dbuser <username>
  737. :database <database>
  738. :dbpassword <secret>
  739. #+END_EXAMPLE
  740. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  741. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  742. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  743. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  744. like this:
  745. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  746. :engine mssql
  747. :dbhost <host.com>
  748. :dbuser <username>
  749. :dbpassword <secret>
  750. :database <database>
  751. #+END_EXAMPLE
  752. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  753. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  754. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  755. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  756. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  757. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  758. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  759. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  760. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  761. include:
  762. All Diagrams:
  763. - png ::
  764. - svg ::
  765. - eps ::
  766. - pdf ::
  767. - vdx ::
  768. - txt :: ASCII art
  769. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  770. Class Diagrams:
  771. - xmi ::
  772. - html ::
  773. State Diagrams:
  774. - scxml ::
  775. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  776. using the :file property, e.g.:
  777. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  778. @startuml
  779. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  780. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  781. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  782. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  783. @enduml
  784. #+end_src
  785. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  786. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  787. details and setup information.
  788. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  789. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  790. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  791. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  792. for details.
  793. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  794. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  795. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  796. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  797. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  798. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  799. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  800. *** Support for ISO week trees
  801. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  802. by ISO week and not by month.
  803. For example:
  804. : * 2015
  805. : ** 2015-W35
  806. : ** 2015-W36
  807. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  808. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  809. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  810. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  811. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  812. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  813. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  814. *** Columns view
  815. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  816. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  817. buffer unconditionally.
  818. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  819. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  820. **** Allow custom summaries
  821. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  822. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  823. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  824. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  825. types.
  826. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  827. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  828. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  829. a git repository.
  830. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  831. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  832. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  833. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  834. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  835. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  836. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  837. first footnote.
  838. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  839. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  840. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  841. the manual for details.
  842. *** Links are now customizable
  843. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  844. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  845. ** New functions
  846. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  847. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  848. *** ~org-show-children~
  849. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  850. ** Removed functions
  851. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  852. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  853. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  854. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  855. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  856. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  857. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  858. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  859. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  860. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  861. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  862. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  863. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  864. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  865. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  866. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  867. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  868. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  869. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  870. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  871. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  872. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  873. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  874. The affected functions are:
  875. - ~org-count~
  876. - ~org-remove-if~
  877. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  878. - ~org-reduce~
  879. - ~org-every~
  880. - ~org-some~
  881. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  882. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  883. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  884. ** Removed options
  885. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  886. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  887. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  888. let those libraries operate.
  889. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  890. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  891. plain list.
  892. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  893. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  894. ** Miscellaneous
  895. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  896. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  897. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  898. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  899. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  900. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  901. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  902. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  903. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  904. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  905. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  906. Org files.
  907. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  908. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  909. indentation.
  910. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  911. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  912. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  913. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  914. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  915. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  916. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  917. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  918. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  919. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  920. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  921. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  922. to the article's original group.
  923. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  924. The calling convention has changed.
  925. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  926. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  927. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  928. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  929. called with 6 parameters.
  930. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  931. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  932. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  933. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  934. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  935. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  936. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  937. the end of the string.
  938. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  939. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  940. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  941. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  942. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  943. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  944. For most folks this file does not exist.
  945. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  946. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  947. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  948. =gnu.org= manuals.
  949. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  950. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  951. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  952. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  953. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  954. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  955. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  956. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  957. future.)
  958. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  959. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  960. modified anyway.
  961. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  962. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  963. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  964. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  965. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  966. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  967. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  968. indication letter was solely J.
  969. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  970. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  971. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  972. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  973. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  974. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  975. a ~defvar~.
  976. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  977. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  978. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  979. * Version 8.3
  980. ** Incompatible changes
  981. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  982. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  983. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  984. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  985. logged before the property drawer.
  986. The following function will repair them:
  987. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  988. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  989. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  990. Ignore non Org buffers."
  991. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  992. (org-with-wide-buffer
  993. (goto-char (point-min))
  994. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  995. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  996. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  997. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  998. (org-map-entries
  999. (lambda ()
  1000. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1001. (save-excursion
  1002. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1003. (forward-line)
  1004. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1005. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1006. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1007. (save-excursion
  1008. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1009. (eq (org-element-type
  1010. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1011. 'drawer))))
  1012. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1013. (match-beginning 0)
  1014. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1015. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1016. #+END_SRC
  1017. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1018. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1019. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1020. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1021. into account when exporting.
  1022. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1023. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1024. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1025. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1026. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1027. 5.14 (2008).
  1028. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1029. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1030. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1031. ,* Headline
  1032. :PROPERTIES:
  1033. :CATEGORY: some category
  1034. :END:
  1035. #+END_SRC
  1036. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1037. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1038. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1039. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1040. see.
  1041. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1042. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1043. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1044. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1045. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1046. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1047. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1048. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1049. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1050. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1051. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1052. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1053. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1054. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1055. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1056. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1057. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1058. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1059. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1060. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1061. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1062. *** Functions signature changes
  1063. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1064. docstring for more information.
  1065. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1066. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1067. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1068. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1069. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1070. - ~org-link-search~
  1071. ** New features
  1072. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp src blocks
  1073. Emacs-lisp src blocks in babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1074. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1075. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1076. :lexical yes
  1077. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1078. :lexical no
  1079. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1080. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1081. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1082. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1083. without changing the headline.
  1084. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1085. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  1086. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1087. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1088. The following in-buffer definition:
  1089. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1090. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1091. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1092. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1093. #+END_SRC
  1094. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1095. - Group
  1096. - SubOne
  1097. - SubOne1
  1098. - SubOne2
  1099. - SubTwo
  1100. - SubTwo1
  1101. - SubTwo2
  1102. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1103. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1104. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1105. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1106. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1107. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1108. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1109. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1110. non-exclusive syntax. This behaviour is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1111. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1112. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1113. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1114. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1115. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1116. #+END_SRC
  1117. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1118. grouptags; { }.
  1119. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1120. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1121. "sub-tags".
  1122. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1123. Example use:
  1124. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1125. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1126. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1127. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1128. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1129. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1130. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1131. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1132. levels anymore.
  1133. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1134. is also used as a filter.
  1135. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1136. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1137. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1138. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1139. exclude.
  1140. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1141. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1142. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1143. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1144. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1145. New ob-processing.el library.
  1146. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1147. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1148. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1149. Check the documentation for more details.
  1150. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1151. *** New behaviour for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1152. The new behaviour is the following:
  1153. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1154. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1155. buffer;
  1156. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1157. subtree;
  1158. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1159. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1160. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1161. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1162. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1163. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1164. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1165. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1166. more information.
  1167. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1168. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1169. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1170. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1171. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1172. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1173. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1174. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1175. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1176. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1177. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1178. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1179. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1180. default is =hline=.
  1181. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1182. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1183. a source block.
  1184. *** New option in ASCII export
  1185. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1186. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1187. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1188. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1189. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1190. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1191. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1192. increased. See manual for details.
  1193. *** Export inline source blocks
  1194. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1195. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1196. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  1197. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  1198. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  1199. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  1200. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  1201. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  1202. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  1203. more features. See docstring for details.
  1204. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  1205. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  1206. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  1207. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  1208. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  1209. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  1210. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1211. : This sentence is false.
  1212. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  1213. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  1214. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  1215. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  1216. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  1217. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  1218. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  1219. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  1220. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  1221. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  1222. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  1223. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  1224. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  1225. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  1226. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  1227. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  1228. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  1229. each time.
  1230. *** ASCII plot
  1231. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  1232. for details.
  1233. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  1234. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  1235. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  1236. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  1237. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  1238. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  1239. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  1240. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  1241. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  1242. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1243. See the docstring for more information.
  1244. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  1245. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  1246. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  1247. property is inherited by children.
  1248. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  1249. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  1250. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  1251. to sort a table.
  1252. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  1253. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  1254. for details.
  1255. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  1256. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  1257. countdown timers.
  1258. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  1259. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  1260. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  1261. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  1262. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  1263. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  1264. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  1265. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  1266. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  1267. manual for details.
  1268. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  1269. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  1270. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  1271. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  1272. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  1273. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  1274. leading spaces within table cells.
  1275. *** New MathJax configuration options
  1276. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  1277. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  1278. *** New behaviour in `org-export-options-alist'
  1279. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  1280. `parse' behaviour on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  1281. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  1282. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  1283. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  1284. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  1285. keywords and properties.
  1286. *** Viewport support in html export
  1287. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  1288. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  1289. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  1290. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  1291. for details.
  1292. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  1293. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  1294. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  1295. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  1296. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  1297. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  1298. added to headline text.
  1299. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  1300. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  1301. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  1302. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  1303. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  1304. =#+TOC= keyword.
  1305. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  1306. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  1307. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  1308. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  1309. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  1310. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  1311. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  1312. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  1313. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  1314. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  1315. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  1316. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  1317. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  1318. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  1319. ** Removed functions
  1320. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  1321. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  1322. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  1323. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  1324. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  1325. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  1326. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  1327. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  1328. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  1329. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  1330. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  1331. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  1332. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  1333. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  1334. optional argument.
  1335. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  1336. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  1337. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  1338. ** Removed options
  1339. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  1340. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  1341. compatibility.
  1342. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  1343. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  1344. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  1345. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  1346. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  1347. document instead.
  1348. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  1349. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  1350. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  1351. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  1352. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  1353. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behaviour is to use the value
  1354. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  1355. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  1356. variable locally.
  1357. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  1358. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  1359. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  1360. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  1361. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  1362. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  1363. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  1364. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  1365. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  1366. removed.
  1367. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  1368. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  1369. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  1370. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  1371. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  1372. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  1373. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  1374. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  1375. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  1376. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  1377. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  1378. *** Removed comment-related filters
  1379. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  1380. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  1381. anymore.
  1382. ** Miscellaneous
  1383. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  1384. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  1385. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  1386. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  1387. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  1388. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  1389. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  1390. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  1391. labels colliding.
  1392. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  1393. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  1394. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  1395. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  1396. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  1397. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  1398. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  1399. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  1400. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  1401. particular test failure was introduced.
  1402. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  1403. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  1404. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  1405. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  1406. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  1407. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  1408. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  1409. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  1410. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1411. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  1412. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  1413. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  1414. This helps spotting wrong links.
  1415. * Version 8.2
  1416. ** Incompatible changes
  1417. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  1418. This may require two changes in user config.
  1419. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  1420. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  1421. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  1422. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  1423. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  1424. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  1425. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  1426. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  1427. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  1428. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  1429. with this:
  1430. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  1431. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  1432. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  1433. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  1434. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  1435. So you need to replace
  1436. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  1437. by
  1438. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  1439. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  1440. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  1441. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  1442. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  1443. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  1444. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  1445. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  1446. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  1447. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  1448. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  1449. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  1450. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  1451. of a symbol.
  1452. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  1453. ** Important bugfixes
  1454. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  1455. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  1456. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  1457. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  1458. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  1459. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  1460. ** New features
  1461. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  1462. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  1463. of the list.
  1464. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  1465. - Support SVG images
  1466. - Support for .pgf files
  1467. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  1468. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  1469. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  1470. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  1471. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  1472. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  1473. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  1474. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  1475. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  1476. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  1477. in a paragraph-like way.
  1478. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1479. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  1480. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  1481. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  1482. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  1483. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  1484. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  1485. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  1486. which can then be passed to export functions like
  1487. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  1488. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  1489. registering a new back-end.
  1490. *** New agenda fortnight view
  1491. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  1492. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  1493. ** New options
  1494. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  1495. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  1496. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  1497. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  1498. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  1499. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  1500. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  1501. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  1502. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  1503. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  1504. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  1505. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1506. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1507. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1508. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1509. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1510. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1511. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1512. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1513. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1514. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1515. If you set this to the following
  1516. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1517. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1518. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1519. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1520. =C-o= in tables.
  1521. ** New contributed packages
  1522. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  1523. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  1524. software.
  1525. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  1526. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  1527. ** Miscellaneous
  1528. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  1529. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  1530. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  1531. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  1532. the same with example blocks.
  1533. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  1534. release.
  1535. * Version 8.0.1
  1536. ** Installation
  1537. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  1538. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  1539. instructions:
  1540. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  1541. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  1542. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  1543. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  1544. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  1545. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  1546. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  1547. detailed explanations.
  1548. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  1549. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  1550. function has been called already.
  1551. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  1552. installation.
  1553. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  1554. ** Incompatible changes
  1555. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  1556. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  1557. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  1558. you will have to update them.
  1559. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  1560. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  1561. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  1562. **** New export engine
  1563. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  1564. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  1565. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  1566. /all/ export back-ends.
  1567. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  1568. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  1569. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  1570. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  1571. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  1572. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  1573. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  1574. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  1575. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  1576. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  1577. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  1578. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  1579. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  1580. should now be written
  1581. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  1582. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  1583. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  1584. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  1585. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  1586. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  1587. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  1588. now fully removed.
  1589. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  1590. remember templates into capture templates.
  1591. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  1592. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  1593. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  1594. **** Note for third-party developers
  1595. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  1596. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  1597. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  1598. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  1599. code.
  1600. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  1601. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  1602. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  1603. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  1604. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  1605. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  1606. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  1607. user-base.
  1608. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  1609. - org-mac-message.el
  1610. - org-mew.el
  1611. - org-wl.el
  1612. - ox-freedmind.el
  1613. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  1614. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  1615. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  1616. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  1617. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  1618. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  1619. ** New packages in core
  1620. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  1621. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  1622. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1623. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  1624. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  1625. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  1626. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  1627. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  1628. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  1629. ** New packages in contrib
  1630. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  1631. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  1632. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  1633. code.
  1634. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1635. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  1636. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  1637. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  1638. entries.
  1639. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1640. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  1641. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  1642. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  1643. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  1644. for starting headlines.
  1645. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  1646. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  1647. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  1648. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  1649. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  1650. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  1651. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  1652. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  1653. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  1654. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1655. using =deck.js=.
  1656. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  1657. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1658. using =s5=.
  1659. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  1660. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  1661. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  1662. output.
  1663. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  1664. conversion from Org files to groff.
  1665. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  1666. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  1667. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  1668. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  1669. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  1670. entirely with Org.
  1671. ** New features
  1672. *** Export
  1673. **** New export generic options
  1674. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  1675. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  1676. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  1677. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  1678. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  1679. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  1680. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  1681. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  1682. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  1683. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  1684. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  1685. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  1686. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  1687. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  1688. contains time-stamps.
  1689. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  1690. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  1691. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  1692. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  1693. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  1694. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  1695. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  1696. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  1697. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  1698. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  1699. *** Structure editing
  1700. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  1701. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  1702. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  1703. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  1704. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  1705. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  1706. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  1707. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  1708. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  1709. region.
  1710. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  1711. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  1712. _words__= will preserve markup.
  1713. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  1714. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  1715. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  1716. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  1717. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  1718. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  1719. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  1720. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  1721. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  1722. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  1723. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  1724. forward and backward.
  1725. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  1726. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  1727. Now Org will sort this list
  1728. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1729. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1730. like this:
  1731. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1732. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1733. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  1734. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  1735. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  1736. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  1737. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  1738. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  1739. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  1740. local variable.
  1741. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  1742. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  1743. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  1744. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  1745. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  1746. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  1747. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  1748. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  1749. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  1750. option to =nil=.
  1751. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  1752. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  1753. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  1754. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  1755. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  1756. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  1757. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  1758. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  1759. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  1760. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  1761. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  1762. *** Scheduled/deadline
  1763. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  1764. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  1765. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  1766. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  1767. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  1768. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  1769. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  1770. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  1771. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  1772. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  1773. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  1774. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  1775. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  1776. control this globally or per agenda.
  1777. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  1778. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  1779. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  1780. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  1781. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  1782. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  1783. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  1784. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  1785. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  1786. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1787. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  1788. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  1789. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  1790. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  1791. (kbd "@")
  1792. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  1793. #+END_SRC
  1794. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  1795. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  1796. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  1797. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  1798. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  1799. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  1800. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  1801. only show their description, not the full links.
  1802. *** Agenda
  1803. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  1804. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  1805. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  1806. want to build a list of appointments.
  1807. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  1808. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  1809. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  1810. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  1811. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  1812. time value (i.e. appointments).
  1813. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  1814. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  1815. | Strategy | Explanations |
  1816. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  1817. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  1818. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  1819. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  1820. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  1821. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  1822. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  1823. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  1824. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  1825. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  1826. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  1827. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  1828. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  1829. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  1830. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  1831. These new options are available:
  1832. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  1833. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  1834. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  1835. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  1836. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  1837. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  1838. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  1839. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  1840. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  1841. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  1842. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  1843. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  1844. non-tagged headlines.
  1845. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  1846. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  1847. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  1848. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  1849. that take only =N= minutes.
  1850. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  1851. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  1852. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  1853. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  1854. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  1855. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  1856. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  1857. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  1858. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  1859. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  1860. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  1861. list of notes.
  1862. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  1863. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  1864. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  1865. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  1866. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  1867. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  1868. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  1869. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  1870. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  1871. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  1872. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  1873. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  1874. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  1875. outline tree.
  1876. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  1877. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  1878. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  1879. asks for a confirmation.
  1880. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  1881. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  1882. the mark of the entry at point.
  1883. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  1884. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  1885. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  1886. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  1887. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  1888. level 1.
  1889. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  1890. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  1891. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  1892. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  1893. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  1894. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  1895. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  1896. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  1897. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  1898. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  1899. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  1900. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  1901. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  1902. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  1903. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  1904. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  1905. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  1906. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  1907. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  1908. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  1909. Read the full docstring for details.
  1910. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  1911. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  1912. : * Task
  1913. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  1914. *** Capture
  1915. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  1916. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  1917. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  1918. capture template.
  1919. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  1920. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  1921. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  1922. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  1923. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  1924. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  1925. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  1926. check against the name of the buffer.
  1927. *** Tag groups
  1928. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  1929. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  1930. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  1931. of those tags.)
  1932. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  1933. agenda views, and for filtering.
  1934. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  1935. *** Links
  1936. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  1937. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  1938. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  1939. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  1940. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  1941. as if the protocol was not known.
  1942. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  1943. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  1944. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  1945. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  1946. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  1947. active.
  1948. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  1949. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  1950. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  1951. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  1952. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  1953. When storing a link to a headline like
  1954. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  1955. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  1956. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  1957. there is no description.
  1958. *** Table
  1959. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  1960. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  1961. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  1962. those other formulas.
  1963. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  1964. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  1965. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  1966. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  1967. the end.
  1968. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  1969. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  1970. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  1971. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  1972. doing computation.
  1973. **** New lookup functions
  1974. There are now three lookup functions:
  1975. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  1976. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  1977. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  1978. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  1979. *** Startup keywords
  1980. These new startup keywords are now available:
  1981. | Startup keyword | Option |
  1982. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1983. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  1984. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  1985. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1986. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  1987. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  1988. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1989. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  1990. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  1991. *** Clocking
  1992. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  1993. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  1994. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  1995. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  1996. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  1997. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  1998. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  1999. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2000. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2001. the clocktable.
  2002. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2003. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2004. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2005. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2006. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2007. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2008. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2009. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2010. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2011. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2012. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2013. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2014. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2015. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2016. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2017. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2018. *** Babel
  2019. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2020. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2021. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2022. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2023. same target than the block at point.
  2024. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2025. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2026. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2027. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2028. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2029. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2030. time.
  2031. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2032. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2033. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2034. manual for a usage example.
  2035. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2036. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2037. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2038. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2039. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2040. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2041. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2042. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2043. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2044. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2045. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2046. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2047. *** Faces
  2048. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2049. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2050. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2051. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2052. ** Miscellaneous
  2053. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2054. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2055. - [[doc:org-export-html-table-tag][org-export-html-table-tag]] is replaced by [[doc:org-html-table-default-attributes][org-html-table-default-attributes]]
  2056. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2057. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2058. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2059. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2060. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2061. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2062. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2063. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2064. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2065. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2066. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2067. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2068. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2069. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2070. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2071. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2072. ** Outside Org
  2073. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2074. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2075. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2076. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2077. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2078. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2079. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2080. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2081. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2082. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2083. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2084. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2085. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2086. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2087. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2088. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2089. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2090. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2091. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2092. * Version 7.9.3
  2093. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2094. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2095. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2096. agenda views.)
  2097. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2098. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2099. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2100. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2101. agenda type to this variable.
  2102. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2103. generation.
  2104. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2105. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2106. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2107. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2108. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2109. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2110. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2111. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2112. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2113. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2114. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2115. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2116. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2117. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2118. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2119. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2120. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2121. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2122. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2123. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2124. in most environments.
  2125. * Version 7.9.2
  2126. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2127. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2128. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2129. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2130. #+END_SRC
  2131. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2132. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2133. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2134. directory.)
  2135. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2136. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2137. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2138. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2139. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  2140. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |
  2141. | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] |
  2142. | =M-h= | | [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] |
  2143. | =*= | | [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] |
  2144. | =C-c C-M-l= | | [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]] |
  2145. | =C-c C-x C-M-v= | | [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]] |
  2146. | =C-c C-x E= | =E= | [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]] |
  2147. | | =#= | [[doc::org-toggle-comment][org-toggle-comment]] |
  2148. | | =:= | [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]] |
  2149. | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= |
  2150. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2151. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2152. ** New package and Babel language
  2153. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2154. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2155. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2156. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2157. ** Incompatible changes
  2158. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2159. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2160. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2161. instead.
  2162. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2163. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2164. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2165. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2166. *** Org Element
  2167. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2168. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2169. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2170. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2171. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2172. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2173. See the docstrings for more details.
  2174. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2175. on =org-element.el=.
  2176. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2177. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2178. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2179. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2180. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2181. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2182. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2183. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2184. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2185. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2186. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2187. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2188. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2189. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2190. elements.
  2191. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2192. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2193. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2194. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2195. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2196. item. Etc.
  2197. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2198. the whole list.
  2199. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2200. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2201. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2202. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2203. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2204. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2205. the same level.
  2206. *** Org Agenda
  2207. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2208. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2209. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2210. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2211. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2212. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2213. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2214. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2215. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2216. generating new ones.
  2217. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2218. agenda buffer.
  2219. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2220. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2221. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2222. to this value
  2223. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2224. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2225. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2226. #+END_SRC
  2227. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2228. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2229. details on how to use this.
  2230. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2231. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2232. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2233. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2234. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2235. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2236. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2237. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2238. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2239. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2240. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2241. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2242. =t=.
  2243. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2244. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2245. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2246. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2247. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2248. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2249. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2250. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2251. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2252. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2253. =f= or =w=).
  2254. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2255. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2256. of deadline.
  2257. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2258. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2259. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2260. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2261. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2262. several times.
  2263. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2264. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2265. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2266. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2267. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2268. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2269. filters and category filters.
  2270. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2271. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2272. configuration.
  2273. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2274. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2275. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2276. point.
  2277. *** Org Links
  2278. **** Inserting links
  2279. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2280. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2281. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2282. want to insert.
  2283. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2284. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2285. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2286. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2287. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2288. highlighted.
  2289. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2290. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2291. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2292. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2293. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2294. **** New link type =help=
  2295. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2296. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2297. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2298. you go back to the same buffer.
  2299. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2300. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2301. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2302. =org-stored-links=.
  2303. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2304. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2305. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2306. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2307. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2308. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2309. *** Org Editing
  2310. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2311. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2312. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2313. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2314. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2315. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2316. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2317. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2318. all headlines in the region.
  2319. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2320. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2321. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2322. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2323. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2324. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2325. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2326. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2327. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2328. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2329. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2330. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2331. undo RET=.
  2332. *** Org Clock
  2333. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2334. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2335. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2336. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2337. clocked entry, if any.
  2338. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2339. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2340. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2341. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2342. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2343. out.
  2344. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2345. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2346. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2347. arguments).
  2348. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2349. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2350. in.
  2351. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2352. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2353. cells in clockreport.
  2354. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2355. time cells in clockreport.
  2356. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2357. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2358. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2359. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2360. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2361. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2362. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2363. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2364. space in the frame title.
  2365. *** Org Appearance
  2366. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2367. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2368. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2369. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2370. don't want to see temporarily.
  2371. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2372. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2373. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2374. There are these new entities:
  2375. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2376. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2377. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2378. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2379. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2380. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2381. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2382. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2383. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2384. The face is back to a normal height.
  2385. *** Org Columns
  2386. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2387. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2388. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2389. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2390. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2391. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2392. block will use its value as the column format.
  2393. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2394. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2395. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2396. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2397. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2398. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2399. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2400. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2401. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2402. You can now use
  2403. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2404. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2405. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2406. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2407. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2408. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2409. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2410. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2411. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2412. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2413. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2414. *** Org Capture
  2415. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2416. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2417. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2418. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2419. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2420. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2421. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2422. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2423. set to this value
  2424. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2425. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2426. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2427. #+END_SRC
  2428. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2429. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2430. more details on how to use this.
  2431. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2432. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2433. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2434. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2435. =nil=.
  2436. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2437. See the manual for more explanations.
  2438. **** More control over empty lines
  2439. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2440. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2441. explanations.
  2442. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2443. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2444. *** Org Export
  2445. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2446. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2447. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2448. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2449. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2450. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2451. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2452. the table.
  2453. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2454. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2455. in the #+DATE option.
  2456. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2457. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2458. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2459. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2460. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2461. More languages are always welcome.
  2462. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2463. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2464. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2465. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2466. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2467. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2468. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2469. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2470. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2471. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2472. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2473. *** Org Babel
  2474. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2475. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2476. supported.
  2477. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2478. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2479. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2480. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2481. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2482. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2483. *** Miscellaneous
  2484. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2485. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2486. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2487. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2488. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2489. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2490. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2491. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2492. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2493. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2494. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2495. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2496. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2497. alarm.
  2498. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2499. This will increment the effort value.
  2500. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2501. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2502. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2503. attach symbolic links.
  2504. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2505. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2506. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2507. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2508. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2509. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2510. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2511. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2512. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2513. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2514. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2515. all top level list items.
  2516. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2517. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2518. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2519. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2520. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2521. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2522. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2523. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2524. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2525. first headline in the region.
  2526. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2527. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2528. agenda.
  2529. ** Important bug fixes
  2530. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2531. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2532. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2533. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2534. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2535. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2536. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2537. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2538. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2539. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2540. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2541. license.
  2542. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2543. the code and the license to your needs.
  2544. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2545. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2546. * Version 7.8.11
  2547. ** Incompatible changes
  2548. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  2549. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  2550. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  2551. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  2552. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  2553. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  2554. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  2555. last-minute save.
  2556. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  2557. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  2558. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  2559. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  2560. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  2561. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  2562. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  2563. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  2564. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  2565. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  2566. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  2567. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  2568. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  2569. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  2570. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  2571. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  2572. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  2573. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  2574. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  2575. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  2576. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  2577. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  2578. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  2579. #+end_src
  2580. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  2581. setup./
  2582. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  2583. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  2584. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  2585. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  2586. The two new variables are:
  2587. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  2588. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  2589. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  2590. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  2591. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  2592. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  2593. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  2594. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  2595. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  2596. classes.
  2597. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  2598. document are:
  2599. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  2600. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  2601. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  2602. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  2603. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  2604. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  2605. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  2606. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  2607. #+begin_example
  2608. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  2609. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  2610. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  2611. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  2612. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  2613. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  2614. #+end_example
  2615. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  2616. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  2617. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  2618. applies to the following packages:
  2619. - inputenc
  2620. - fontenc
  2621. - fixltx2e
  2622. - graphicx
  2623. - longtable

  2634. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  2635. you are using, you can remove it from
  2636. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  2637. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  2638. properly.
  2639. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  2640. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  2641. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  2642. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  2643. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  2644. the header.
  2645. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  2646. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  2647. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  2648. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  2649. code using it.
  2650. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  2651. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  2652. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  2653. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  2654. ** Important new features
  2655. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  2656. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  2657. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  2658. for more information on how to customize it.
  2659. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  2660. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  2661. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  2662. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  2663. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  2664. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  2665. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  2666. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  2667. To switch over to the new system:
  2668. 1. Run
  2669. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  2670. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  2671. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  2672. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  2673. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  2674. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  2675. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  2676. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  2677. customization.
  2678. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  2679. with org-remember:
  2680. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  2681. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  2682. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  2683. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  2684. with using both system in parallel.
  2685. ** New libraries
  2686. *** New Org libraries
  2687. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  2688. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  2689. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  2690. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  2691. To use, put the following in your init file:
  2692. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2693. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  2694. #+END_EXAMPLE
  2695. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  2696. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  2697. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  2698. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  2699. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  2700. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  2701. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  2702. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  2703. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  2704. anything.
  2705. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  2706. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  2707. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  2708. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  2709. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  2710. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  2711. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  2712. /org-ctags.el/.
  2713. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  2714. call function to do something special with text links.
  2715. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  2716. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  2717. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  2718. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  2719. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  2720. Org-mode manual:
  2721. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  2722. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  2723. *** New Babel libraries
  2724. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  2725. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  2726. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  2727. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  2728. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  2729. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  2730. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  2731. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  2732. *** Hyperlinks
  2733. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  2734. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  2735. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  2736. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  2737. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  2738. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  2739. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  2740. The key new functions are
  2741. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  2742. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  2743. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  2744. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  2745. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  2746. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  2747. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  2748. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  2749. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  2750. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  2751. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  2752. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  2753. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  2754. **** Modified link escaping
  2755. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  2756. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  2757. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  2758. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  2759. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  2760. : link).
  2761. :
  2762. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  2763. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  2764. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  2765. : percent escaped links are solved.
  2766. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  2767. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  2768. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  2769. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  2770. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  2771. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  2772. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  2773. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  2774. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  2775. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  2776. string to be executed.
  2777. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  2778. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  2779. to org-file-apps:
  2780. #+begin_example
  2781. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  2782. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  2783. #+end_example
  2784. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  2785. *** Dates and time
  2786. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  2787. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  2788. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  2789. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  2790. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  2791. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  2792. will work on the current entry.
  2793. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  2794. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  2795. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  2796. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  2797. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  2798. #+begin_example
  2799. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  2800. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  2801. #+end_example
  2802. *** Agenda
  2803. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  2804. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  2805. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  2806. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  2807. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  2808. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  2809. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  2810. entries using a function.
  2811. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  2812. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  2813. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  2814. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  2815. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  2816. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  2817. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  2818. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  2819. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  2820. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  2821. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  2822. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  2823. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  2824. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  2825. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  2826. *** Exporting
  2827. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  2828. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  2829. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  2830. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  2831. docstring of these variable for details about available
  2832. %-sequences.
  2833. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  2834. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  2835. formatting string will insert a string.
  2836. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  2837. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  2838. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  2839. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  2840. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  2841. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  2842. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  2843. C-e u=, respectively.
  2844. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  2845. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  2846. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  2847. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  2848. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  2849. your preference.
  2850. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  2851. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  2852. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  2853. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  2854. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  2855. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  2856. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  2857. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  2858. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  2859. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  2860. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  2861. section]] in the manual for more details.
  2862. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  2863. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  2864. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  2865. individual could.
  2866. *** Refiling
  2867. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  2868. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  2869. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  2870. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  2871. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  2872. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  2873. **** New logging support for refiling
  2874. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  2875. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  2876. =org-log-refile=.
  2877. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  2878. *** Completion
  2879. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  2880. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  2881. *** Tables
  2882. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  2883. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  2884. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  2885. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  2886. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  2887. the displayed in the buffer.
  2888. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  2889. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  2890. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  2891. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  2892. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  2893. |--------+--------+---------|
  2894. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  2895. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  2896. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  2897. optional.
  2898. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  2899. feedback on this.
  2900. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  2901. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  2902. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  2903. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  2904. : things like
  2905. :
  2906. : @3=
  2907. : @2$2..@5$7=
  2908. : @I$2..@II$4=
  2909. :
  2910. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  2911. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  2912. : table.
  2913. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  2914. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  2915. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  2916. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  2917. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  2918. *** Lists
  2919. **** Improved handling of lists
  2920. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  2921. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  2922. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  2923. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  2924. indented than it.
  2925. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  2926. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  2927. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  2928. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  2929. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  2930. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  2931. `org-list-export-context'.
  2932. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  2933. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  2934. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  2935. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  2936. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  2937. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  2938. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  2939. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  2940. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  2941. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  2942. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  2943. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  2944. *** Inline display of linked images
  2945. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  2946. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  2947. that have no description part will be inlined.
  2948. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  2949. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  2950. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  2951. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  2952. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  2953. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  2954. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  2955. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  2956. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  2957. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  2958. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  2959. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  2960. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  2961. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  2962. tangling
  2963. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  2964. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  2965. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  2966. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  2967. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  2968. properties or in tables.
  2969. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  2970. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  2971. names, and rownames across all languages.
  2972. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  2973. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  2974. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  2975. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  2976. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  2977. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  2978. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  2979. request by Scott Otterson.
  2980. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  2981. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  2982. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  2983. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  2984. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  2985. superscripts, see the variable
  2986. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  2987. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  2988. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  2989. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  2990. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  2991. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  2992. following new faces:
  2993. =org-document-title=
  2994. =org-document-info=
  2995. =org-document-info-keyword=
  2996. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  2997. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  2998. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  2999. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3000. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3001. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3002. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3003. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3004. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3005. property is affected by this setting.
  3006. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3007. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3008. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3009. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3010. **** Better level cycling function
  3011. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3012. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3013. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3014. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3015. **** Adaptive filling
  3016. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3017. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3018. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3019. comments to be filled correctly.
  3020. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3021. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3022. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3023. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3024. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3025. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3026. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3027. *** Clocking
  3028. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3029. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3030. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3031. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3032. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3033. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3034. **** Localized clock tables
  3035. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3036. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3037. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3038. available translated strings.
  3039. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3040. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3041. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3042. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3043. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3044. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3045. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3046. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3047. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3048. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3049. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3050. =nil=.
  3051. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3052. *** Misc
  3053. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3054. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3055. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3056. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3057. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3058. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3059. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3060. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3061. property) back.
  3062. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3063. change.
  3064. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3065. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3066. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3067. #+begin_example
  3068. org-table-get
  3069. org-table-put
  3070. org-table-current-line
  3071. org-table-goto-line
  3072. #+end_example
  3073. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3074. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3075. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3076. node.
  3077. This was requested by Tom.
  3078. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3079. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3080. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3081. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
