  8. * Version 9.3
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** ob-clojure will not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement now
  11. When tangling, user usually just want to tangle literally code instead
  12. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  13. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  14. behavior will not happend automatically.
  15. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  16. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  17. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  18. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  19. it is.
  20. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  21. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  22. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  23. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  24. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  25. You can get the old behaviour back with the following:
  26. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  27. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  28. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  29. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  30. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  31. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  32. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  33. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  34. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  35. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  36. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  37. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  38. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  39. since now it's implicitly always true.
  40. ** New features
  41. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  42. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  43. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  44. You can add dynamic block into ~org-dynamic-block-alist~ with function
  45. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All dynamic blocks in
  46. ~org-dynamic-block-define~ can be used by
  47. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  48. *** Babel
  49. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  50. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  51. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  52. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  53. changes in the buffer.
  54. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  55. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  56. a headline.
  57. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  58. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  59. ~:caption~.
  60. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  61. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  62. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  63. attachement directory.
  64. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  65. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  66. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  67. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  68. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  69. interpreted as publicly visable, accessible to a specific group, and
  70. private respectively.
  71. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  72. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  73. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  74. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  75. system than the main Org document. For example:
  76. #+begin_example
  77. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  78. #+end_example
  79. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  80. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  81. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  82. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  83. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  84. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  85. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  86. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  87. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  88. LaTeX font locking.
  89. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learnt to shift backward in time
  90. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  91. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  92. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  93. days in the past.
  94. ** New functions
  95. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  96. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  97. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  98. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  99. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  100. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  101. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  102. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  103. ** Removed functions
  104. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  105. It was unused throughout the code base.
  106. ** Miscellaneous
  107. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  108. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  109. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  110. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  111. interface.
  112. * Version 9.2
  113. ** Incompatible changes
  114. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  115. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  116. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  117. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  118. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  119. to use orgalist.el, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  120. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  121. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  122. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  123. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  124. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  125. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  126. you probably need to udpate it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  127. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  128. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  129. : (require 'org-tempo)
  130. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  131. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  132. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  133. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  134. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  135. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  136. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  137. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  138. unique, Noweb reference.
  139. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  140. ,#+NAME: foo
  141. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  142. 1
  143. ,#+END_SRC
  144. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  145. 2
  146. ,#+END_SRC
  147. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  148. <<foo>>
  149. ,#+END_SRC
  150. #+END_SRC
  151. should become
  152. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  153. ,#+NAME: foo
  154. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  155. 1
  156. ,#+END_SRC
  157. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  158. 2
  159. ,#+END_SRC
  160. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  161. <<bar>>
  162. ,#+END_SRC
  163. #+END_SRC
  164. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  165. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  166. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  167. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  168. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  169. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  170. :
  171. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  172. Check the full docstring for more.
  173. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  174. Here is the new docstring:
  175. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  176. :
  177. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  178. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  179. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  180. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  181. : variables is set.
  182. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  183. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  184. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  185. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  186. examples:
  187. #+begin_example
  188. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  189. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  190. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  191. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  192. #+end_example
  193. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  194. #+begin_example
  195. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  196. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  197. #+end_example
  198. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  199. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  200. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  201. aligning.
  202. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  203. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  204. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  205. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  206. #+END_EXAMPLE
  207. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  208. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  209. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  210. local tags. In order to get the old behaviour back, you can use:
  211. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  212. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  213. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  214. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  215. code-point.
  216. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  217. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  218. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  219. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  220. dedicated column.
  221. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  222. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  223. ** New features
  224. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  225. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  226. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  227. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  228. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  229. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  230. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  231. #+begin_src clojure :session
  232. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  233. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  234. #+end_src
  235. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  236. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  237. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  238. #+begin_example
  239. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  240. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  241. ,#+end_src
  242. ,#+results:
  243. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  244. #+end_example
  245. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  246. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  247. console.log("stardiviner")
  248. #+end_src
  249. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  250. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  251. console.log("stardiviner")
  252. #+end_src
  253. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  254. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  255. console.log("stardiviner")
  256. #+end_src
  257. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  258. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  259. add a label to the rendered equation.
  260. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  261. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  262. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  263. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  264. manual for details.
  265. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  266. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  267. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  268. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  269. ,* Top [1/2]
  270. ,** DONE Completed
  271. ,** TODO Working
  272. #+END_SRC
  273. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  274. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  275. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  276. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  277. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  278. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  279. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  280. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  281. its previous state.
  282. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  283. size.
  284. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  285. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  286. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  287. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  288. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  289. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  290. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  291. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  292. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  293. prop
  294. "0")))
  295. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  296. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  297. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  298. #+END_SRC
  299. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  300. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  301. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  302. ,* All shipments
  303. ,** Shipment 1
  304. :PROPERTIES:
  305. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  306. :Bananas: 4
  307. :END:
  308. ,** Shipment 2
  309. :PROPERTIES:
  310. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  311. :BANANAS: 7
  312. :END:
  313. #+END_SRC
  314. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  315. you should expect to see something like:
  316. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  317. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  318. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  319. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  320. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  321. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  322. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  323. #+END_EXAMPLE
  324. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  325. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  326. matcher.
  327. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  328. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  329. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  330. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  331. parameters. See example bellow.
  332. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  333. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  334. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  335. select sysdate from dual;
  336. ,#+END_SRC
  337. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  338. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  339. select sysdate from dual;
  340. ,#+END_SRC
  341. #+END_SRC
  342. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  343. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  344. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  345. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  346. remove it.
  347. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  348. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  349. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  350. ** New commands and functions
  351. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  352. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  353. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  354. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  355. See docstring for details.
  356. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  357. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  358. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  359. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  360. See docstring for details.
  361. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  362. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  363. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  364. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  365. will go back to the widen state.
  366. *** ~org-browse-news~
  367. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read informations
  368. about the last major release.
  369. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  370. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  371. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  372. on the context.
  373. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  374. ** Removed commands and functions
  375. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  376. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  377. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  378. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  379. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  380. It was not used throughout the code base.
  381. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  382. It was not used throughout code base.
  383. *** ~org-context-p~
  384. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  385. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  386. It is no longer used in the code base.
  387. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  388. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  389. ** Removed options
  390. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  391. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  392. ** Miscellaneous
  393. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  394. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  395. handled specially by default.
  396. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  397. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  398. handled specially by default.
  399. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  400. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  401. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  402. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  403. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  404. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  405. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  406. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  407. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  408. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  409. reciprocal.
  410. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  411. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  412. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  413. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  414. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  415. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  416. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  417. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  418. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  419. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  420. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  421. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  422. rules instead of by code-point.
  423. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  424. * Version 9.1
  425. ** Incompatible changes
  426. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  427. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  428. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  429. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  430. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  431. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  432. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  433. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  434. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  435. accordingly.
  436. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  437. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  438. is to turn, e.g.,
  439. : (file (sexp))
  440. into
  441. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  442. *** Deleted contributed packages
  443. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  444. from the contrib/ directory.
  445. You can now find them here :
  446. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  447. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  448. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  449. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  450. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  451. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  452. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  453. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  454. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  455. changes to site-map generation.
  456. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  457. to the following
  458. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  459. (lambda (entry style project)
  460. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  461. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  462. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  463. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  464. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  465. (t entry)))
  466. #+END_SRC
  467. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  468. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  469. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  470. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  471. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  472. list as their first argument.
  473. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  474. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  475. See docstring for details.
  476. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  477. See docstring for changes.
  478. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  479. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  480. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  481. details.
  482. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  483. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  484. keywords.
  485. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  486. It used to return nil.
  487. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  488. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  489. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  490. MELPA repository.
  491. ** New features
  492. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  493. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  494. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  495. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  496. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  497. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  498. specified as in "Europe/London".
  499. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  500. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  501. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  502. directory to old, ID based one.
  503. *** New Org duration library
  504. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  505. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  506. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  507. docstrings.
  508. *** Agenda
  509. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  510. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  511. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  512. See docstring for details.
  513. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  514. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  515. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  516. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  517. the default setting.
  518. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  519. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  520. directories in published site-maps.
  521. *** Babel
  522. **** Scheme: support for tables
  523. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  524. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  525. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  526. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  527. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  528. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  529. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  530. with the content to be added.
  531. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  532. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  533. before this let form.
  534. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  535. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  536. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  537. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  538. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  539. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  540. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  541. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  542. window/buffer.
  543. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  544. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  545. option in the code block's header like this:
  546. #+begin_example
  547. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  548. (dotimes [n 10]
  549. (println n ".")
  550. (Thread/sleep 500))
  551. ,#+END_SRC
  552. #+end_example
  553. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  554. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  555. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  556. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  557. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  558. =#+RESULTS= section.
  559. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  560. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  561. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  562. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  563. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  564. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  565. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  566. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  567. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  568. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  569. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  570. results in a beamer presentation.
  571. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  572. [[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
  573. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  574. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  575. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  576. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  577. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  578. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  579. #+begin_example
  580. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  581. Select * From Users
  582. Where clue > 0
  583. ,#+END_SRC
  584. #+end_example
  585. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  586. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  587. against HP Vertica.
  588. 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]]
  589. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  590. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  591. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  592. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  593. ,#+END_SRC
  594. #+END_EXAMPLE
  595. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  596. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  597. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  598. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  599. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  600. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  601. using ~:namespaces~:
  602. #+begin_example
  603. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  604. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  605. ,#+END_SRC
  606. #+end_example
  607. **** Support for Vala language
  608. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  609. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  610. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  611. 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~]]
  612. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  613. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  614. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  615. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  616. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  617. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  618. *** Export
  619. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  620. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  621. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  622. contents, are now supported.
  623. **** Add Slovenian translations
  624. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  625. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  626. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  627. details.
  628. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  629. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  630. manual for details.
  631. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  632. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  633. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  634. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  635. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  636. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  637. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  638. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  639. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  640. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  641. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  642. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  643. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  644. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  645. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  646. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  647. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  648. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  649. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  650. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  651. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  652. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  653. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  654. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  655. to the document.
  656. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  657. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  658. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  659. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  660. ~uniquify.el~.
  661. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  662. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  663. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  664. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  665. to ~org-file-contents~.
  666. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  667. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  668. that file cache.
  669. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  670. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  671. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  672. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  673. ** Removed functions
  674. *** Org Timeline
  675. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  676. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  677. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  678. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  679. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  680. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  681. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  682. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  683. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  684. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  685. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  686. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  687. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  688. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  689. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  690. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  691. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  692. ** Removed options
  693. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  694. For an equivalent to a ~nil~ value, set
  695. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  696. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to ~t~.
  697. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  698. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  699. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  700. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  701. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  702. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  703. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  704. equivalent to the removed format string.
  705. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  706. Setting it to a ~nil~ value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  707. keys).
  708. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  709. The variable is now a boolean.
  710. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  711. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  712. ** New functions
  713. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  714. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  715. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  716. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  717. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  718. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  719. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  720. ** Miscellaneous
  721. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  722. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  723. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  724. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  725. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  726. *** Allow multiple columns view
  727. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  728. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  729. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  730. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  731. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  732. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  733. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  734. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  735. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  736. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  737. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  738. used to describe the time span.
  739. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  740. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  741. far away in the future.
  742. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  743. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  744. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  745. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  746. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  747. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  748. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  749. See docstring for details.
  750. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  751. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  752. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  753. is now obsolete.
  754. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  755. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  756. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  757. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  758. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  759. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  760. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  761. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  762. suitable as a default value.
  763. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  764. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  765. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  766. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are
  767. covered by rewrite rules.
  768. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  769. * Version 9.0
  770. ** Incompatible changes
  771. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  772. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  773. above is suggested.
  774. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  775. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  776. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  777. our mailing list.
  778. *** New syntax for export blocks
  779. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  780. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  781. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  782. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  783. ...
  784. ,#+END_EXPORT
  785. #+END_SRC
  786. instead of
  787. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  788. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  789. ...
  790. ,#+END_backend
  791. #+END_SRC
  792. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  793. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  794. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  795. #+END_SRC
  796. becomes
  797. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  798. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  799. #+END_SRC
  800. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  801. using previous syntax:
  802. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  803. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  804. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  805. (interactive)
  806. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  807. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  808. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  809. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  810. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  811. t)))
  812. (org-with-wide-buffer
  813. (goto-char (point-min))
  814. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  815. (save-excursion
  816. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  817. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  818. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  819. (save-excursion
  820. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  821. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  822. (forward-char)
  823. (insert "EXPORT")
  824. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  825. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  826. (let ((include-re
  827. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  828. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  829. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  830. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  831. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  832. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  833. #+END_SRC
  834. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  835. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  836. removed.
  837. *** Footnotes
  838. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  839. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  840. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  841. constructs are now unsupported.
  842. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  843. =[fn:N]=.
  844. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  845. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  846. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  847. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  848. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  849. exists.
  850. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  851. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  852. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  853. is straightforward. For example
  854. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  855. becomes
  856. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  857. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  858. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  859. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  860. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  861. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  862. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  863. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  864. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  865. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  866. such, the following
  867. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  868. ,* Headline
  869. :PROPERTIES:
  870. :exports: code
  871. :var: a=1 b=2
  872. :var+: c=3
  873. :END:
  874. #+END_EXAMPLE
  875. should be written instead
  876. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  877. ,* Headline
  878. :PROPERTIES:
  879. :header-args: :exports code
  880. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  881. :header-args+: :var c=3
  882. :END:
  883. #+END_EXAMPLE
  884. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  885. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  886. ** New features
  887. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  888. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  889. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  890. #+begin_example
  891. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  892. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  893. #+end_example
  894. Old-style links such as
  895. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  896. continue to be supported.
  897. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  898. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  899. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  900. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  901. lists.
  902. *** New Org linter library
  903. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  904. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  905. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  906. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  907. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  908. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  909. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  910. a HTML derived export back-end.
  911. *** Export
  912. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  913. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  914. details.
  915. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  916. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  917. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  918. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  919. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  920. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  921. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  922. for more details.
  923. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  924. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  925. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  926. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  927. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  928. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  929. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  930. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  931. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  932. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  933. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  934. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  935. used.
  936. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  937. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  938. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  939. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  940. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  941. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  942. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  943. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  944. ;; this will export with line number 20
  945. (message "This is line 21")
  946. ,#+END_SRC
  947. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  948. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  949. (message "This is line 32")
  950. ,#+END_SRC
  951. #+END_SRC
  952. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  953. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  954. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  955. export.
  956. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  957. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  958. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  959. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  960. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  961. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  962. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  963. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  964. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  965. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  966. *** Babel
  967. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  968. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  969. **** Support for Lua language
  970. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  971. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  972. **** Support for Stan language
  973. New ob-stan.el library.
  974. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  975. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  976. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  977. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  978. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  979. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  980. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  981. that does not end in ".stan".
  982. For more information and usage examples, visit
  983. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  984. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  985. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  986. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  987. mandatory):
  988. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  989. :engine oracle
  990. :dbhost <host.com>
  991. :dbport <1521>
  992. :dbuser <username>
  993. :database <database>
  994. :dbpassword <secret>
  995. #+END_EXAMPLE
  996. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  997. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  998. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  999. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1000. like this:
  1001. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1002. :engine mssql
  1003. :dbhost <host.com>
  1004. :dbuser <username>
  1005. :dbpassword <secret>
  1006. :database <database>
  1007. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1008. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1009. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1010. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1011. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1012. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1013. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1014. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1015. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1016. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1017. include:
  1018. All Diagrams:
  1019. - png ::
  1020. - svg ::
  1021. - eps ::
  1022. - pdf ::
  1023. - vdx ::
  1024. - txt :: ASCII art
  1025. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1026. Class Diagrams:
  1027. - xmi ::
  1028. - html ::
  1029. State Diagrams:
  1030. - scxml ::
  1031. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1032. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1033. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1034. @startuml
  1035. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1036. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1037. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1038. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1039. @enduml
  1040. #+end_src
  1041. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1042. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1043. details and setup information.
  1044. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1045. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1046. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1047. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1048. for details.
  1049. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1050. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1051. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1052. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1053. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1054. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1055. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1056. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1057. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1058. by ISO week and not by month.
  1059. For example:
  1060. : * 2015
  1061. : ** 2015-W35
  1062. : ** 2015-W36
  1063. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1064. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1065. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1066. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1067. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1068. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1069. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1070. *** Columns view
  1071. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1072. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1073. buffer unconditionally.
  1074. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1075. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1076. **** Allow custom summaries
  1077. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1078. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1079. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1080. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1081. types.
  1082. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1083. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1084. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1085. a git repository.
  1086. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1087. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1088. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1089. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1090. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1091. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1092. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1093. first footnote.
  1094. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1095. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1096. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1097. the manual for details.
  1098. *** Links are now customizable
  1099. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1100. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1101. ** New functions
  1102. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1103. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1104. *** ~org-show-children~
  1105. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1106. ** Removed functions
  1107. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1108. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1109. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1110. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1111. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1112. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1113. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1114. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1115. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1116. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1117. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1118. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1119. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1120. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1121. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1122. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1123. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1124. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1125. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1126. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1127. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1128. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1129. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1130. The affected functions are:
  1131. - ~org-count~
  1132. - ~org-remove-if~
  1133. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1134. - ~org-reduce~
  1135. - ~org-every~
  1136. - ~org-some~
  1137. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1138. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1139. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1140. ** Removed options
  1141. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1142. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1143. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1144. let those libraries operate.
  1145. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1146. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1147. plain list.
  1148. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1149. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1150. ** Miscellaneous
  1151. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1152. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1153. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1154. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1155. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1156. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1157. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1158. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1159. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1160. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1161. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1162. Org files.
  1163. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1164. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1165. indentation.
  1166. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1167. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1168. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1169. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1170. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1171. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1172. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1173. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1174. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1175. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1176. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1177. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1178. to the article's original group.
  1179. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1180. The calling convention has changed.
  1181. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1182. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1183. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1184. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1185. called with 6 parameters.
  1186. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1187. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1188. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1189. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1190. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1191. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1192. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1193. the end of the string.
  1194. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1195. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1196. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1197. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1198. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1199. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1200. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1201. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1202. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1203. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1204. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1205. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1206. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1207. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1208. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1209. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1210. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1211. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1212. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1213. future.)
  1214. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1215. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1216. modified anyway.
  1217. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1218. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1219. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1220. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1221. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1222. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1223. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1224. indication letter was solely J.
  1225. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1226. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1227. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1228. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1229. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1230. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1231. a ~defvar~.
  1232. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1233. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1234. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1235. * Version 8.3
  1236. ** Incompatible changes
  1237. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1238. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1239. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1240. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1241. logged before the property drawer.
  1242. The following function will repair them:
  1243. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1244. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1245. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1246. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1247. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1248. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1249. (goto-char (point-min))
  1250. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1251. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1252. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1253. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1254. (org-map-entries
  1255. (lambda ()
  1256. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1257. (save-excursion
  1258. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1259. (forward-line)
  1260. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1261. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1262. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1263. (save-excursion
  1264. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1265. (eq (org-element-type
  1266. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1267. 'drawer))))
  1268. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1269. (match-beginning 0)
  1270. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1271. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1272. #+END_SRC
  1273. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1274. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1275. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1276. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1277. into account when exporting.
  1278. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1279. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1280. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1281. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1282. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1283. 5.14 (2008).
  1284. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1285. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1286. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1287. ,* Headline
  1288. :PROPERTIES:
  1289. :CATEGORY: some category
  1290. :END:
  1291. #+END_SRC
  1292. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1293. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1294. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1295. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1296. see.
  1297. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1298. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1299. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1300. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1301. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1302. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1303. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1304. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1305. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1306. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1307. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1308. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1309. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1310. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1311. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1312. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1313. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1314. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1315. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1316. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1317. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1318. *** Functions signature changes
  1319. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1320. docstring for more information.
  1321. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1322. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1323. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1324. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1325. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1326. - ~org-link-search~
  1327. ** New features
  1328. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1329. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1330. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1331. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1332. :lexical yes
  1333. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1334. :lexical no
  1335. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1336. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1337. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1338. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1339. without changing the headline.
  1340. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1341. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  1342. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1343. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1344. The following in-buffer definition:
  1345. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1346. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1347. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1348. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1349. #+END_SRC
  1350. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1351. - Group
  1352. - SubOne
  1353. - SubOne1
  1354. - SubOne2
  1355. - SubTwo
  1356. - SubTwo1
  1357. - SubTwo2
  1358. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1359. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1360. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1361. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1362. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1363. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1364. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1365. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1366. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1367. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1368. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1369. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1370. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1371. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1372. #+END_SRC
  1373. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1374. grouptags; { }.
  1375. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1376. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1377. "sub-tags".
  1378. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1379. Example use:
  1380. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1381. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1382. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1383. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1384. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1385. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1386. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1387. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1388. levels anymore.
  1389. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1390. is also used as a filter.
  1391. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1392. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1393. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1394. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1395. exclude.
  1396. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1397. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1398. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1399. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1400. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1401. New ob-processing.el library.
  1402. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1403. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1404. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1405. Check the documentation for more details.
  1406. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1407. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1408. The new behavior is the following:
  1409. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1410. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1411. buffer;
  1412. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1413. subtree;
  1414. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1415. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1416. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1417. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1418. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1419. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1420. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1421. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1422. more information.
  1423. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1424. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1425. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1426. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1427. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1428. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1429. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1430. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1431. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1432. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1433. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1434. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1435. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1436. default is =hline=.
  1437. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1438. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1439. a source block.
  1440. *** New option in ASCII export
  1441. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1442. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1443. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1444. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1445. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1446. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1447. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1448. increased. See manual for details.
  1449. *** Export inline source blocks
  1450. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1451. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1452. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  1453. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  1454. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  1455. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  1456. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  1457. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  1458. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  1459. more features. See docstring for details.
  1460. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  1461. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  1462. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  1463. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  1464. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  1465. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  1466. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1467. : This sentence is false.
  1468. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  1469. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  1470. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  1471. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  1472. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  1473. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  1474. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  1475. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  1476. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  1477. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  1478. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  1479. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  1480. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  1481. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  1482. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  1483. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  1484. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  1485. each time.
  1486. *** ASCII plot
  1487. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  1488. for details.
  1489. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  1490. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  1491. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  1492. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  1493. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  1494. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  1495. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  1496. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  1497. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  1498. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1499. See the docstring for more information.
  1500. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  1501. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  1502. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  1503. property is inherited by children.
  1504. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  1505. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  1506. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  1507. to sort a table.
  1508. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  1509. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  1510. for details.
  1511. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  1512. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  1513. countdown timers.
  1514. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  1515. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  1516. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  1517. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  1518. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  1519. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  1520. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  1521. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  1522. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  1523. manual for details.
  1524. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  1525. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  1526. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  1527. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  1528. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  1529. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  1530. leading spaces within table cells.
  1531. *** New MathJax configuration options
  1532. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  1533. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  1534. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  1535. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  1536. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  1537. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  1538. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  1539. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  1540. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  1541. keywords and properties.
  1542. *** Viewport support in html export
  1543. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  1544. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  1545. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  1546. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  1547. for details.
  1548. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  1549. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  1550. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  1551. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  1552. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  1553. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  1554. added to headline text.
  1555. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  1556. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  1557. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  1558. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  1559. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  1560. =#+TOC= keyword.
  1561. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  1562. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  1563. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  1564. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  1565. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  1566. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  1567. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  1568. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  1569. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  1570. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  1571. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  1572. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  1573. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  1574. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  1575. ** Removed functions
  1576. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  1577. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  1578. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  1579. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  1580. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  1581. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  1582. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  1583. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  1584. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  1585. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  1586. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  1587. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  1588. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  1589. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  1590. optional argument.
  1591. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  1592. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  1593. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  1594. ** Removed options
  1595. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  1596. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  1597. compatibility.
  1598. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  1599. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  1600. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  1601. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  1602. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  1603. document instead.
  1604. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  1605. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  1606. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  1607. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  1608. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  1609. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  1610. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  1611. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  1612. variable locally.
  1613. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  1614. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  1615. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  1616. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  1617. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  1618. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  1619. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  1620. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  1621. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  1622. removed.
  1623. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  1624. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  1625. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  1626. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  1627. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  1628. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  1629. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  1630. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  1631. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  1632. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  1633. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  1634. *** Removed comment-related filters
  1635. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  1636. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  1637. anymore.
  1638. ** Miscellaneous
  1639. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  1640. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  1641. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  1642. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  1643. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  1644. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  1645. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  1646. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  1647. labels colliding.
  1648. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  1649. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  1650. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  1651. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  1652. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  1653. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  1654. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  1655. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  1656. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  1657. particular test failure was introduced.
  1658. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  1659. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  1660. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  1661. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  1662. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  1663. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  1664. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  1665. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  1666. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1667. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  1668. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  1669. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  1670. This helps spotting wrong links.
  1671. * Version 8.2
  1672. ** Incompatible changes
  1673. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  1674. This may require two changes in user config.
  1675. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  1676. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  1677. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  1678. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  1679. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  1680. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  1681. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  1682. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  1683. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  1684. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  1685. with this:
  1686. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  1687. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  1688. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  1689. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  1690. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  1691. So you need to replace
  1692. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  1693. by
  1694. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  1695. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  1696. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  1697. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  1698. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  1699. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  1700. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  1701. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  1702. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  1703. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  1704. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  1705. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  1706. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  1707. of a symbol.
  1708. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  1709. ** Important bugfixes
  1710. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  1711. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  1712. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  1713. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  1714. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  1715. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  1716. ** New features
  1717. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  1718. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  1719. of the list.
  1720. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  1721. - Support SVG images
  1722. - Support for .pgf files
  1723. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  1724. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  1725. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  1726. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  1727. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  1728. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  1729. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  1730. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  1731. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  1732. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  1733. in a paragraph-like way.
  1734. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1735. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  1736. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  1737. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  1738. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  1739. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  1740. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  1741. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  1742. which can then be passed to export functions like
  1743. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  1744. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  1745. registering a new back-end.
  1746. *** New agenda fortnight view
  1747. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  1748. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  1749. ** New options
  1750. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  1751. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  1752. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  1753. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  1754. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  1755. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  1756. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  1757. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  1758. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  1759. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  1760. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  1761. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1762. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1763. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1764. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1765. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1766. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1767. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1768. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1769. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1770. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1771. If you set this to the following
  1772. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1773. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1774. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1775. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1776. =C-o= in tables.
  1777. ** New contributed packages
  1778. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  1779. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  1780. software.
  1781. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  1782. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  1783. ** Miscellaneous
  1784. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  1785. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  1786. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  1787. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  1788. the same with example blocks.
  1789. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  1790. release.
  1791. * Version 8.0.1
  1792. ** Installation
  1793. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  1794. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  1795. instructions:
  1796. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  1797. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  1798. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  1799. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  1800. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  1801. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  1802. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  1803. detailed explanations.
  1804. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  1805. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  1806. function has been called already.
  1807. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  1808. installation.
  1809. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  1810. ** Incompatible changes
  1811. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  1812. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  1813. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  1814. you will have to update them.
  1815. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  1816. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  1817. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  1818. **** New export engine
  1819. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  1820. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  1821. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  1822. /all/ export back-ends.
  1823. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  1824. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  1825. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  1826. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  1827. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  1828. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  1829. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  1830. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  1831. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  1832. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  1833. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  1834. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  1835. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  1836. should now be written
  1837. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  1838. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  1839. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  1840. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  1841. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  1842. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  1843. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  1844. now fully removed.
  1845. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  1846. remember templates into capture templates.
  1847. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  1848. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  1849. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  1850. **** Note for third-party developers
  1851. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  1852. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  1853. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  1854. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  1855. code.
  1856. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  1857. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  1858. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  1859. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  1860. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  1861. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  1862. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  1863. user-base.
  1864. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  1865. - org-mac-message.el
  1866. - org-mew.el
  1867. - org-wl.el
  1868. - ox-freedmind.el
  1869. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  1870. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  1871. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  1872. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  1873. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  1874. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  1875. ** New packages in core
  1876. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  1877. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  1878. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1879. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.

  1888. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  1889. code.
  1890. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1891. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  1892. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  1893. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  1894. entries.
  1895. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1896. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  1897. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  1898. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  1899. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  1900. for starting headlines.
  1901. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  1902. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  1903. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  1904. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  1905. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  1906. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  1907. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  1908. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  1909. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  1910. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1911. using =deck.js=.
  1912. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  1913. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1914. using =s5=.
  1915. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  1916. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  1917. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  1918. output.
  1919. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  1920. conversion from Org files to groff.
  1921. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  1922. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  1923. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  1924. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  1925. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  1926. entirely with Org.
  1927. ** New features
  1928. *** Export
  1929. **** New export generic options
  1930. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  1931. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  1932. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  1933. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  1934. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  1935. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  1936. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  1937. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  1938. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  1939. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  1940. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  1941. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  1942. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  1943. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  1944. contains time-stamps.
  1945. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  1946. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  1947. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  1948. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  1949. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  1950. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  1951. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  1952. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  1953. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  1954. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  1955. *** Structure editing
  1956. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  1957. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  1958. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  1959. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  1960. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  1961. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  1962. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  1963. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  1964. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  1965. region.
  1966. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  1967. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  1968. _words__= will preserve markup.
  1969. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  1970. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  1971. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  1972. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  1973. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  1974. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  1975. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  1976. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  1977. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  1978. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  1979. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  1980. forward and backward.
  1981. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  1982. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  1983. Now Org will sort this list
  1984. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1985. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1986. like this:
  1987. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1988. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1989. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  1990. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  1991. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  1992. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  1993. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  1994. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  1995. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  1996. local variable.
  1997. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  1998. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  1999. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2000. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2001. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2002. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2003. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2004. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2005. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2006. option to =nil=.
  2007. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2008. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2009. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2010. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2011. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2012. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2013. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2014. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2015. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2016. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2017. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2018. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2019. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2020. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2021. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2022. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2023. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2024. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2025. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2026. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2027. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2028. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2029. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2030. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2031. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2032. control this globally or per agenda.
  2033. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2034. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2035. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2036. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2037. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2038. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2039. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2040. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2041. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2042. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2043. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2044. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2045. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2046. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2047. (kbd "@")
  2048. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2049. #+END_SRC
  2050. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2051. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2052. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2053. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2054. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2055. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2056. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2057. only show their description, not the full links.
  2058. *** Agenda
  2059. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2060. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2061. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2062. want to build a list of appointments.
  2063. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2064. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2065. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2066. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2067. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2068. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2069. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2070. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2071. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2072. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2073. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2074. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2075. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2076. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2077. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2078. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2079. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2080. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2081. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2082. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2083. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2084. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2085. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2086. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2087. These new options are available:
  2088. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2089. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2090. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2091. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2092. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2093. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2094. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2095. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2096. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2097. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2098. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2099. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2100. non-tagged headlines.
  2101. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2102. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2103. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2104. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2105. that take only =N= minutes.
  2106. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2107. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2108. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2109. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2110. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2111. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2112. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2113. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2114. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2115. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2116. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2117. list of notes.
  2118. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2119. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2120. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2121. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2122. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2123. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2124. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2125. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2126. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2127. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2128. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2129. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2130. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2131. outline tree.
  2132. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2133. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2134. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2135. asks for a confirmation.
  2136. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2137. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2138. the mark of the entry at point.
  2139. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2140. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2141. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2142. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2143. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2144. level 1.
  2145. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2146. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2147. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2148. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2149. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2150. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2151. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2152. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2153. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2154. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2155. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2156. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2157. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2158. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2159. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2160. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2161. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2162. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2163. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2164. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2165. Read the full docstring for details.
  2166. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2167. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2168. : * Task
  2169. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2170. *** Capture
  2171. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2172. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2173. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2174. capture template.
  2175. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2176. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2177. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2178. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2179. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2180. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2181. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2182. check against the name of the buffer.
  2183. *** Tag groups
  2184. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2185. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2186. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2187. of those tags.)
  2188. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2189. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2190. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2191. *** Links
  2192. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2193. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2194. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2195. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2196. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2197. as if the protocol was not known.
  2198. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2199. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2200. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2201. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2202. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2203. active.
  2204. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2205. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2206. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2207. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2208. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2209. When storing a link to a headline like
  2210. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2211. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2212. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2213. there is no description.
  2214. *** Table
  2215. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2216. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2217. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2218. those other formulas.
  2219. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2220. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2221. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2222. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2223. the end.
  2224. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2225. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2226. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2227. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2228. doing computation.
  2229. **** New lookup functions
  2230. There are now three lookup functions:
  2231. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2232. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2233. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2234. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2235. *** Startup keywords
  2236. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2237. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2238. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2239. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2240. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2241. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2242. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2243. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  2244. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2245. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  2246. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2247. *** Clocking
  2248. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2249. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2250. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2251. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2252. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2253. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2254. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2255. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2256. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2257. the clocktable.
  2258. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2259. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2260. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2261. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2262. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2263. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2264. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2265. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2266. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2267. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2268. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2269. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2270. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2271. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2272. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2273. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2274. *** Babel
  2275. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2276. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2277. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2278. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2279. same target than the block at point.
  2280. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2281. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2282. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2283. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2284. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2285. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2286. time.
  2287. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2288. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2289. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2290. manual for a usage example.
  2291. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2292. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2293. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2294. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2295. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2296. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2297. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2298. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2299. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2300. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2301. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2302. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2303. *** Faces
  2304. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2305. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2306. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2307. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2308. ** Miscellaneous
  2309. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2310. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2311. - [[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]]
  2312. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2313. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2314. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2315. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2316. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2317. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2318. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2319. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2320. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2321. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2322. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2323. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2324. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2325. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2326. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2327. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2328. ** Outside Org
  2329. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2330. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2331. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2332. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2333. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2334. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2335. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2336. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2337. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2338. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2339. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2340. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2341. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2342. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2343. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2344. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2345. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2346. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2347. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2348. * Version 7.9.3
  2349. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2350. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2351. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2352. agenda views.)
  2353. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2354. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2355. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2356. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2357. agenda type to this variable.
  2358. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2359. generation.
  2360. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2361. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2362. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2363. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2364. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2365. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2366. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2367. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2368. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2369. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2370. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2371. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2372. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2373. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2374. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2375. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2376. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2377. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2378. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2379. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2380. in most environments.
  2381. * Version 7.9.2
  2382. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2383. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2384. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2385. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2386. #+END_SRC
  2387. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2388. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2389. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2390. directory.)
  2391. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2392. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2393. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2394. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2395. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  2396. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |

  2406. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2407. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2408. ** New package and Babel language
  2409. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2410. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2411. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2412. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2413. ** Incompatible changes
  2414. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2415. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2416. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2417. instead.
  2418. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2419. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2420. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2421. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2422. *** Org Element
  2423. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2424. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2425. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2426. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2427. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2428. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2429. See the docstrings for more details.
  2430. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2431. on =org-element.el=.
  2432. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2433. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2434. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2435. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2436. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2437. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2438. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2439. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2440. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2441. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2442. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2443. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2444. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2445. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2446. elements.
  2447. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2448. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2449. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2450. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2451. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2452. item. Etc.
  2453. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2454. the whole list.
  2455. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2456. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2457. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2458. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2459. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2460. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2461. the same level.
  2462. *** Org Agenda
  2463. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2464. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2465. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2466. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2467. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2468. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2469. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2470. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2471. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2472. generating new ones.
  2473. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2474. agenda buffer.
  2475. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2476. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2477. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2478. to this value
  2479. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2480. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2481. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2482. #+END_SRC
  2483. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2484. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2485. details on how to use this.
  2486. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2487. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2488. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2489. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2490. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2491. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2492. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2493. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2494. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2495. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2496. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2497. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2498. =t=.
  2499. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2500. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2501. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2502. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2503. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2504. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2505. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2506. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2507. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2508. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2509. =f= or =w=).
  2510. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2511. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2512. of deadline.
  2513. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2514. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2515. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2516. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2517. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2518. several times.
  2519. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2520. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2521. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2522. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2523. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2524. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2525. filters and category filters.
  2526. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2527. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2528. configuration.
  2529. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2530. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2531. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2532. point.
  2533. *** Org Links
  2534. **** Inserting links
  2535. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2536. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2537. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2538. want to insert.
  2539. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2540. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2541. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2542. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2543. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2544. highlighted.
  2545. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2546. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2547. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2548. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2549. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2550. **** New link type =help=
  2551. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2552. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2553. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2554. you go back to the same buffer.
  2555. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2556. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2557. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2558. =org-stored-links=.
  2559. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2560. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2561. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2562. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2563. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2564. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2565. *** Org Editing
  2566. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2567. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2568. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2569. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2570. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2571. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2572. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2573. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2574. all headlines in the region.
  2575. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2576. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2577. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2578. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2579. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2580. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2581. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2582. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2583. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2584. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2585. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2586. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2587. undo RET=.
  2588. *** Org Clock
  2589. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2590. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2591. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2592. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2593. clocked entry, if any.
  2594. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2595. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2596. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2597. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2598. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2599. out.
  2600. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2601. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2602. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2603. arguments).
  2604. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2605. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2606. in.
  2607. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2608. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2609. cells in clockreport.
  2610. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2611. time cells in clockreport.
  2612. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2613. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2614. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2615. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2616. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2617. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2618. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2619. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2620. space in the frame title.
  2621. *** Org Appearance
  2622. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2623. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2624. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2625. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2626. don't want to see temporarily.
  2627. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2628. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2629. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2630. There are these new entities:
  2631. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2632. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2633. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2634. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2635. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2636. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2637. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2638. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2639. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2640. The face is back to a normal height.
  2641. *** Org Columns
  2642. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2643. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2644. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2645. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2646. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2647. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2648. block will use its value as the column format.
  2649. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2650. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2651. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2652. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2653. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2654. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2655. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2656. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2657. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2658. You can now use
  2659. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2660. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2661. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2662. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2663. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2664. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2665. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2666. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2667. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2668. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2669. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2670. *** Org Capture
  2671. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2672. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2673. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2674. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2675. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2676. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2677. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2678. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2679. set to this value
  2680. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2681. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2682. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2683. #+END_SRC
  2684. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2685. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2686. more details on how to use this.
  2687. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2688. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2689. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2690. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2691. =nil=.
  2692. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2693. See the manual for more explanations.
  2694. **** More control over empty lines
  2695. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2696. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2697. explanations.
  2698. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2699. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2700. *** Org Export
  2701. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2702. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2703. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2704. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2705. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2706. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2707. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2708. the table.
  2709. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2710. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2711. in the #+DATE option.
  2712. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2713. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2714. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2715. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2716. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2717. More languages are always welcome.
  2718. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2719. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2720. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2721. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2722. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2723. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2724. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2725. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2726. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2727. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2728. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2729. *** Org Babel
  2730. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2731. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2732. supported.
  2733. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2734. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2735. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2736. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2737. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2738. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2739. *** Miscellaneous
  2740. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2741. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2742. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2743. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2744. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2745. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2746. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2747. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2748. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2749. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2750. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2751. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2752. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2753. alarm.
  2754. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2755. This will increment the effort value.
  2756. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2757. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2758. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2759. attach symbolic links.
  2760. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2761. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2762. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2763. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2764. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2765. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2766. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2767. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2768. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2769. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2770. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2771. all top level list items.
  2772. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2773. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2774. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2775. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2776. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2777. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2778. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2779. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2780. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2781. first headline in the region.
  2782. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2783. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2784. agenda.
  2785. ** Important bug fixes
  2786. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2787. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2788. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2789. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2790. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2791. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2792. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2793. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2794. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2795. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2796. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2797. license.
  2798. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2799. the code and the license to your needs.
  2800. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2801. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2802. * Version 7.8.11
  2803. ** Incompatible changes
  2804. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  2805. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  2806. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  2807. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  2808. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  2809. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  2810. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  2811. last-minute save.
  2812. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  2813. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  2814. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  2815. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  2816. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  2817. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  2818. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  2819. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  2820. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  2821. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  2822. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  2823. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  2824. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  2825. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  2826. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  2827. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  2828. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  2829. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  2830. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  2831. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  2832. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  2833. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  2834. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  2835. #+end_src
  2836. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  2837. setup./
  2838. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  2839. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  2840. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  2841. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  2842. The two new variables are:
  2843. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  2844. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  2845. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  2846. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  2847. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  2848. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  2849. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  2850. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  2851. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  2852. classes.
  2853. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  2854. document are:
  2855. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  2856. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  2857. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  2858. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  2859. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  2860. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  2861. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  2862. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  2863. #+begin_example
  2864. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  2865. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  2866. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  2867. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  2868. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  2869. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  2870. #+end_example
  2871. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  2872. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  2873. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  2874. applies to the following packages:
  2875. - inputenc
  2876. - fontenc
  2877. - fixltx2e
  2878. - graphicx
  2879. - longtable
  2880. - float
  2881. - wrapfig
  2882. - soul
  2883. - t1enc
  2884. - textcomp
  2885. - marvosym
  2886. - wasysym
  2887. - latexsym
  2888. - amssymb
  2889. - hyperref
  2890. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  2891. you are using, you can remove it from
  2892. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  2893. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  2894. properly.
  2895. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  2896. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  2897. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  2898. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  2899. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  2900. the header.
  2901. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  2902. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  2903. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  2904. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  2905. code using it.
  2906. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  2907. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  2908. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  2909. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  2910. ** Important new features
  2911. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  2912. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  2913. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  2914. for more information on how to customize it.
  2915. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  2916. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  2917. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  2918. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  2919. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  2920. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  2921. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  2922. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  2923. To switch over to the new system:
  2924. 1. Run
  2925. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  2926. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  2927. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  2928. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  2929. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  2930. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  2931. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  2932. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  2933. customization.
  2934. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  2935. with org-remember:
  2936. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  2937. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  2938. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  2939. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  2940. with using both system in parallel.
  2941. ** New libraries
  2942. *** New Org libraries
  2943. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  2944. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  2945. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  2946. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  2947. To use, put the following in your init file:
  2948. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2949. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  2950. #+END_EXAMPLE
  2951. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  2952. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  2953. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  2954. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  2955. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  2956. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  2957. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  2958. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  2959. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  2960. anything.
  2961. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  2962. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  2963. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  2964. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  2965. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  2966. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  2967. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  2968. /org-ctags.el/.
  2969. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  2970. call function to do something special with text links.
  2971. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  2972. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  2973. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  2974. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  2975. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  2976. Org-mode manual:
  2977. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  2978. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  2979. *** New Babel libraries
  2980. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  2981. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  2982. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  2983. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  2984. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  2985. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  2986. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  2987. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  2988. *** Hyperlinks
  2989. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  2990. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  2991. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  2992. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  2993. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  2994. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  2995. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  2996. The key new functions are
  2997. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  2998. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  2999. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3000. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3001. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3002. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3003. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3004. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3005. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3006. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3007. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3008. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3009. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3010. **** Modified link escaping
  3011. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  3012. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3013. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3014. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3015. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3016. : link).
  3017. :
  3018. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3019. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3020. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3021. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3022. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3023. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3024. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3025. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3026. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3027. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3028. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3029. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3030. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3031. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3032. string to be executed.
  3033. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3034. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3035. to org-file-apps:
  3036. #+begin_example
  3037. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3038. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3039. #+end_example
  3040. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3041. *** Dates and time
  3042. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3043. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3044. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3045. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3046. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3047. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3048. will work on the current entry.
  3049. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3050. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3051. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3052. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3053. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3054. #+begin_example
  3055. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3056. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3057. #+end_example
  3058. *** Agenda
  3059. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3060. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3061. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3062. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3063. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3064. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3065. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3066. entries using a function.
  3067. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3068. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3069. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3070. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3071. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3072. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3073. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3074. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3075. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3076. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3077. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3078. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3079. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3080. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3081. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3082. *** Exporting
  3083. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3084. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3085. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3086. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3087. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3088. %-sequences.
  3089. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3090. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3091. formatting string will insert a string.
  3092. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3093. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3094. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3095. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3096. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3097. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3098. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3099. C-e u=, respectively.
  3100. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3101. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3102. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3103. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3104. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3105. your preference.
  3106. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3107. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3108. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3109. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3110. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3111. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3112. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3113. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3114. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3115. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3116. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3117. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3118. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3119. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3120. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3121. individual could.
  3122. *** Refiling
  3123. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3124. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3125. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3126. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3127. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3128. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3129. **** New logging support for refiling
  3130. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3131. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3132. =org-log-refile=.
  3133. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3134. *** Completion
  3135. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3136. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3137. *** Tables
  3138. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3139. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3140. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3141. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3142. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3143. the displayed in the buffer.
  3144. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3145. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3146. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3147. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3148. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3149. |--------+--------+---------|
  3150. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3151. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3152. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3153. optional.
  3154. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3155. feedback on this.
  3156. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3157. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3158. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3159. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3160. : things like
  3161. :
  3162. : @3=
  3163. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3164. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3165. :
  3166. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3167. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3168. : table.
  3169. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3170. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3171. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3172. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3173. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3174. *** Lists
  3175. **** Improved handling of lists
  3176. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3177. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3178. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3179. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3180. indented than it.
  3181. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3182. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3183. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3184. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3185. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3186. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3187. `org-list-export-context'.
  3188. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3189. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3190. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3191. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3192. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3193. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3194. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3195. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3196. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3197. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3198. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3199. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3200. *** Inline display of linked images
  3201. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3202. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3203. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3204. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3205. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3206. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3207. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3208. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3209. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3210. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3211. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3212. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3213. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3214. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3215. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3216. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3217. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3218. tangling
  3219. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3220. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3221. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3222. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3223. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3224. properties or in tables.
  3225. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3226. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3227. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3228. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3229. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3230. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3231. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3232. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3233. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3234. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3235. request by Scott Otterson.
  3236. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3237. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3238. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3239. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3240. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3241. superscripts, see the variable
  3242. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3243. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3244. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3245. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3246. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3247. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3248. following new faces:
  3249. =org-document-title=
  3250. =org-document-info=
  3251. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3252. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3253. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3254. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3255. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3256. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3257. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3258. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3259. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3260. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3261. property is affected by this setting.
  3262. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3263. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3264. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3265. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3266. **** Better level cycling function
  3267. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3268. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3269. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3270. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3271. **** Adaptive filling
  3272. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3273. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3274. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3275. comments to be filled correctly.
  3276. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3277. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3278. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3279. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3280. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3281. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3282. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3283. *** Clocking
  3284. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3285. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3286. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3287. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3288. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3289. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3290. **** Localized clock tables
  3291. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3292. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3293. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3294. available translated strings.
  3295. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3296. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3297. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3298. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3299. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3300. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3301. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3302. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3303. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3304. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3305. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3306. =nil=.
  3307. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3308. *** Misc
  3309. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3310. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3311. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3312. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3313. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3314. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3315. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3316. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3317. property) back.
  3318. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3319. change.
  3320. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3321. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3322. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3323. #+begin_example
  3324. org-table-get
  3325. org-table-put
  3326. org-table-current-line
  3327. org-table-goto-line
  3328. #+end_example
  3329. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3330. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3331. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3332. node.
  3333. This was requested by Tom.
  3334. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3335. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3336. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3337. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
