  6. Please send Org bug reports to mailto:emacs-orgmode@gnu.org.
  7. * Version 9.0
  8. ** Incompatible changes
  9. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  10. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  11. above is suggested.
  12. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  13. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  14. want to take over maintainance of this compatibility, please contact
  15. our mailing list.
  16. *** New syntax for export blocks
  17. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  18. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  19. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  20. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  21. ...
  22. ,#+END_EXPORT
  23. #+END_SRC
  24. instead of
  25. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  26. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  27. ...
  28. ,#+END_backend
  29. #+END_SRC
  30. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  31. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  32. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  33. #+END_SRC
  34. becomes
  35. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  36. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  37. #+END_SRC
  38. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  39. using previous syntax:
  40. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  41. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  42. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  43. (interactive)
  44. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  45. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  46. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  47. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  48. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  49. t)))
  50. (org-with-wide-buffer
  51. (goto-char (point-min))
  52. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  53. (save-excursion
  54. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  55. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  56. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  57. (save-excursion
  58. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  59. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  60. (forward-char)
  61. (insert "EXPORT")
  62. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  63. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  64. (let ((include-re
  65. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  66. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  67. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  68. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  69. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  70. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  71. #+END_SRC
  72. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  73. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  74. removed.
  75. *** Footnotes
  76. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  77. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  78. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  79. constructs are now unsupported.
  80. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  81. =[fn:N]=.
  82. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  83. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  84. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  85. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  86. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  87. exists.
  88. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  89. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  90. S-expressions. Replacing a S-expresion with an appropriate function
  91. is straightforward. For example
  92. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  93. becomes
  94. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  95. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  96. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  97. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  98. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  99. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  100. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  101. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  102. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  103. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  104. such, the following
  105. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  106. ,* Headline
  107. :PROPERTIES:
  108. :exports: code
  109. :var: a=1 b=2
  110. :var+: c=3
  111. :END:
  112. #+END_EXAMPLE
  113. should be written instead
  114. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  115. ,* Headline
  116. :PROPERTIES:
  117. :header-args: :exports code
  118. :header-args: :var a=1 b=2
  119. :header-args+: :var c=3
  120. :END:
  121. #+END_EXAMPLE
  122. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  123. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  124. ** New features
  125. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  126. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  127. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  128. #+begin_example
  129. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  130. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  131. #+end_example
  132. Old-style links such as
  133. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  134. continue to be supported.
  135. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  136. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  137. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  138. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  139. lists.
  140. *** New Org linter library
  141. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  142. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  143. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  144. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  145. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  146. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionnally as a =|=,
  147. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~|~ when using
  148. a HTML derived export back-end.
  149. *** Export
  150. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  151. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  152. details.
  153. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  154. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  155. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  156. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  157. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  158. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  159. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  160. for more details.
  161. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  162. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  163. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  164. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  165. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  166. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  167. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  168. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  169. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  170. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  171. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  172. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  173. used.
  174. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  175. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  176. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  177. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  178. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  179. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  180. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  181. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  182. ;; this will export with line number 20
  183. (message "This is line 21")
  184. ,#+END_SRC
  185. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  186. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  187. (message "This is line 32")
  188. ,#+END_SRC
  189. #+END_SRC
  190. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  191. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  192. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  193. export.
  194. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  195. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  196. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  197. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  198. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  199. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  200. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  201. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  202. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  203. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  204. *** Babel
  205. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  206. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  207. **** Support for Lua language
  208. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  209. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  210. **** Support for Stan language
  211. New ob-stan.el library.
  212. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  213. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  214. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  215. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  216. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  217. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  218. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  219. that does not end in ".stan".
  220. For more information and usage examples, visit
  221. http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  222. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  223. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  224. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  225. mandatory):
  226. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  227. :engine oracle
  228. :dbhost <host.com>
  229. :dbport <1521>
  230. :dbuser <username>
  231. :database <database>
  232. :dbpassword <secret>
  233. #+END_EXAMPLE
  234. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  235. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  236. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  237. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  238. like this:
  239. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  240. :engine mssql
  241. :dbhost <host.com>
  242. :dbuser <username>
  243. :dbpassword <secret>
  244. :database <database>
  245. #+END_EXAMPLE
  246. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  247. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  248. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  249. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  250. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  251. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  252. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  253. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  254. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  255. include:
  256. All Diagrams:
  257. - png ::
  258. - svg ::
  259. - eps ::
  260. - pdf ::
  261. - vdx ::
  262. - txt :: ASCII art
  263. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  264. Class Diagrams:
  265. - xmi ::
  266. - html ::
  267. State Diagrams:
  268. - scxml ::
  269. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  270. using the :file property, e.g.:
  271. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  272. @startuml
  273. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  274. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  275. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  276. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  277. @enduml
  278. #+end_src
  279. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  280. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  281. details and setup information.
  282. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  283. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  284. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  285. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  286. for details.
  287. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  288. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  289. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  290. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  291. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  292. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  293. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  294. *** Support for ISO week trees
  295. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  296. by ISO week and not by month.
  297. For example:
  298. : * 2015
  299. : ** 2015-W35
  300. : ** 2015-W36
  301. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  302. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  303. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  304. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  305. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  306. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  307. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  308. *** Columns view
  309. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  310. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  311. buffer unconditionally.
  312. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  313. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  314. **** Allow custom summaries
  315. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  316. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  317. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  318. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  319. types.
  320. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  321. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  322. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  323. a git repository.
  324. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  325. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  326. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  327. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  328. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  329. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  330. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  331. first footnote.
  332. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  333. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  334. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  335. the manual for details.
  336. *** Links are now customizable
  337. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  338. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  339. ** New functions
  340. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  341. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  342. *** ~org-show-children~
  343. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  344. ** Removed functions
  345. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  346. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  347. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  348. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  349. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  350. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  351. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  352. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  353. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  354. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  355. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  356. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  357. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  358. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  359. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  360. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  361. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  362. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  363. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  364. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  365. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  366. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  367. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  368. The affected functions are:
  369. - ~org-count~
  370. - ~org-remove-if~
  371. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  372. - ~org-reduce~
  373. - ~org-every~
  374. - ~org-some~
  375. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  376. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  377. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  378. ** Removed options
  379. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  380. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  381. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  382. let those libraries operate.
  383. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  384. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  385. plain list.
  386. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  387. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  388. ** Miscellaneous
  389. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  390. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  391. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  392. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  393. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  394. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  395. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  396. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  397. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  398. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  399. current projet. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  400. Org files.
  401. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  402. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  403. indentation.
  404. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  405. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  406. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  407. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  408. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  409. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  410. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  411. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  412. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  413. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  414. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  415. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  416. to the article's original group.
  417. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  418. The calling convention has changed.
  419. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  420. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  421. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  422. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  423. called with 6 parameters.
  424. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  425. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  426. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  427. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  428. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  429. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  430. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  431. the end of the string.
  432. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  433. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  434. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  435. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  436. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  437. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  438. For most folks this file does not exist.
  439. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  440. : <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  441. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  442. =gnu.org= manuals.
  443. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  444. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  445. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  446. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  447. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  448. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  449. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  450. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  451. future.)
  452. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  453. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  454. modified anyway.
  455. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  456. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  457. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  458. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  459. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  460. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  461. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  462. indication letter was solely J.
  463. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  464. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  465. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  466. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  467. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  468. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  469. a ~defvar~.
  470. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  471. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  472. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  473. * Version 8.3
  474. ** Incompatible changes
  475. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  476. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  477. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  478. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  479. logged before the property drawer.
  480. The following function will repair them:
  481. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  482. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  483. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  484. Ignore non Org buffers."
  485. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  486. (org-with-wide-buffer
  487. (goto-char (point-min))
  488. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  489. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  490. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  491. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  492. (org-map-entries
  493. (lambda ()
  494. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  495. (save-excursion
  496. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  497. (forward-line)
  498. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  499. (when (and (< (point) end)
  500. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  501. (save-excursion
  502. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  503. (eq (org-element-type
  504. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  505. 'drawer))))
  506. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  507. (match-beginning 0)
  508. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  509. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  510. #+END_SRC
  511. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  512. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  513. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  514. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  515. into account when exporting.
  516. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  517. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  518. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  519. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  520. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  521. 5.14 (2008).
  522. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  523. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  524. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  525. ,* Headline
  526. :PROPERTIES:
  527. :CATEGORY: some category
  528. :END:
  529. #+END_SRC
  530. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  531. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  532. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  533. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  534. see.
  535. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  536. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  537. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  538. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  539. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  540. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  541. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  542. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  543. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  544. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  545. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  546. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  547. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  548. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  549. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  550. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  551. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  552. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  553. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  554. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  555. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  556. *** Functions signature changes
  557. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  558. docstring for more information.
  559. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  560. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  561. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  562. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  563. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  564. - ~org-link-search~
  565. ** New features
  566. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp src blocks
  567. Emacs-lisp src blocks in babel are now evaluated using lexical
  568. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  569. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  570. :lexical yes
  571. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  572. :lexical no
  573. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  574. :lexical '((x . 42))
  575. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  576. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  577. without changing the headline.
  578. *** Hierarchies of tags
  579. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  580. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  581. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  582. The following in-buffer definition:
  583. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  584. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  585. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  586. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  587. #+END_SRC
  588. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  589. - Group
  590. - SubOne
  591. - SubOne1
  592. - SubOne2
  593. - SubTwo
  594. - SubTwo1
  595. - SubTwo2
  596. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  597. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  598. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  599. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  600. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  601. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  602. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  603. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  604. non-exclusive syntax. This behaviour is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  605. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  606. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  607. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  608. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  609. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  610. #+END_SRC
  611. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  612. grouptags; { }.
  613. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  614. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  615. "sub-tags".
  616. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  617. Example use:
  618. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  619. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  620. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  621. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  622. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  623. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  624. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  625. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  626. levels anymore.
  627. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  628. is also used as a filter.
  629. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  630. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  631. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  632. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  633. exclude.
  634. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  635. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  636. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  637. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  638. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  639. New ob-processing.el library.
  640. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  641. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  642. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  643. Check the documentation for more details.
  644. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  645. *** New behaviour for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  646. The new behaviour is the following:
  647. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  648. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  649. buffer;
  650. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  651. subtree;
  652. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  653. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  654. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  655. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  656. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  657. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  658. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  659. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  660. more information.
  661. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  662. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  663. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  664. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  665. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  666. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  667. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  668. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  669. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  670. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  671. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  672. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  673. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  674. default is =hline=.
  675. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  676. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  677. a source block.
  678. *** New option in ASCII export
  679. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  680. variable to an appopriate integer.
  681. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  682. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  683. blocks. See documentation for details.
  684. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  685. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  686. increased. See manual for details.
  687. *** Export inline source blocks
  688. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  689. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  690. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  691. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  692. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  693. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  694. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  695. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  696. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  697. more features. See docstring for details.
  698. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  699. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  700. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  701. document, befor wrapping it within the template.
  702. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  703. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  704. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  705. : This sentence is false.
  706. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  707. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  708. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  709. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  710. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  711. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  712. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  713. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  714. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  715. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  716. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  717. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  718. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  719. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  720. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  721. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  722. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  723. each time.
  724. *** ASCII plot
  725. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  726. for details.
  727. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  728. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  729. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  730. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  731. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  732. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  733. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  734. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  735. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  736. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  737. See the docstring for more information.
  738. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  739. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  740. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  741. property is inherited by children.
  742. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  743. It is now possible to specify a function, both programatically,
  744. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  745. to sort a table.
  746. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  747. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  748. for details.
  749. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  750. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  751. countdown timers.
  752. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  753. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  754. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  755. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  756. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  757. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  758. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  759. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  760. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  761. manual for details.
  762. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  763. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  764. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  765. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  766. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  767. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  768. leading spaces within table cells.
  769. *** New MathJax configuration options
  770. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  771. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  772. *** New behaviour in `org-export-options-alist'
  773. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  774. `parse' behaviour on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  775. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  776. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  777. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  778. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  779. keywords and properties.
  780. *** Viewport support in html export
  781. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  782. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  783. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  784. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  785. for details.
  786. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  787. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  788. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  789. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  790. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  791. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  792. added to headline text.
  793. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  794. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  795. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  796. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  797. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  798. =#+TOC= keyword.
  799. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  800. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  801. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  802. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  803. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  804. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  805. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  806. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  807. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  808. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  809. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  810. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  811. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  812. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  813. ** Removed functions
  814. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  815. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  816. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  817. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  818. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  819. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  820. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  821. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  822. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  823. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  824. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  825. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  826. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  827. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  828. optional argument.
  829. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  830. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  831. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  832. ** Removed options
  833. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  834. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  835. compatibility.
  836. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  837. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  838. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  839. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  840. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  841. document instead.
  842. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  843. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  844. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  845. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  846. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  847. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behaviour is to use the value
  848. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  849. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  850. variable locally.
  851. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  852. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  853. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  854. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  855. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  856. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  857. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  858. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  859. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  860. removed.
  861. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  862. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  863. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  864. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  865. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  866. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  867. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  868. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  869. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  870. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  871. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  872. *** Removed comment-related filters
  873. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  874. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  875. anymore.
  876. ** Miscellaneous
  877. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  878. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  879. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  880. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  881. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  882. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  883. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  884. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  885. labels colliding.
  886. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  887. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  888. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  889. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  890. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  891. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  892. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  893. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  894. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  895. particular test failure was introduced.
  896. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  897. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  898. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  899. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  900. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  901. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  902. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  903. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  904. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  905. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  906. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  907. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  908. This helps spotting wrong links.
  909. * Version 8.2
  910. ** Incompatible changes
  911. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  912. This may require two changes in user config.
  913. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  914. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  915. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  916. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  917. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  918. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  919. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  920. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  921. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  922. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  923. with this:
  924. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  925. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  926. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  927. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  928. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  929. So you need to replace
  930. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  931. by
  932. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  933. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  934. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  935. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  936. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  937. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  938. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  939. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  940. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  941. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  942. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  943. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  944. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  945. of a symbol.
  946. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  947. ** Important bugfixes
  948. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  949. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  950. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  951. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  952. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  953. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  954. ** New features
  955. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  956. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  957. of the list.
  958. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  959. - Support SVG images
  960. - Support for .pgf files
  961. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  962. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  963. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  964. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  965. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  966. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  967. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  968. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  969. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  970. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  971. in a paragraph-like way.
  972. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  973. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  974. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  975. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  976. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  977. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  978. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  979. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  980. which can then be passed to export functions like
  981. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  982. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  983. registering a new back-end.
  984. *** New agenda fortnight view
  985. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  986. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  987. ** New options
  988. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  989. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  990. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  991. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  992. See http://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  993. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  994. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  995. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  996. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  997. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  998. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  999. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1000. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1001. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1002. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1003. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1004. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1005. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1006. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1007. See [[http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1008. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1009. If you set this to the following
  1010. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1011. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1012. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1013. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1014. =C-o= in tables.
  1015. ** New contributed packages
  1016. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  1017. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  1018. software.
  1019. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  1020. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  1021. ** Miscellaneous
  1022. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  1023. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  1024. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  1025. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  1026. the same with example blocks.
  1027. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  1028. release.
  1029. * Version 8.0.1
  1030. ** Installation
  1031. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  1032. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  1033. instructions:
  1034. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  1035. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  1036. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  1037. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  1038. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  1039. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  1040. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  1041. detailed explanations.
  1042. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  1043. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  1044. function has been called already.
  1045. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  1046. installation.
  1047. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  1048. ** Incompatible changes
  1049. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  1050. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  1051. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  1052. you will have to update them.
  1053. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  1054. See http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  1055. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  1056. **** New export engine
  1057. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  1058. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  1059. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  1060. /all/ export back-ends.
  1061. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  1062. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  1063. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  1064. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  1065. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  1066. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  1067. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  1068. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  1069. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  1070. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  1071. manual for details and check [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  1072. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  1073. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  1074. should now be written
  1075. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  1076. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  1077. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  1078. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  1079. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  1080. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  1081. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  1082. now fully removed.
  1083. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  1084. remember templates into capture templates.
  1085. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  1086. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  1087. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  1088. **** Note for third-party developers
  1089. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  1090. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  1091. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  1092. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  1093. code.
  1094. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  1095. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  1096. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  1097. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  1098. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  1099. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  1100. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  1101. user-base.
  1102. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  1103. - org-mac-message.el
  1104. - org-mew.el
  1105. - org-wl.el
  1106. - ox-freedmind.el
  1107. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  1108. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  1109. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  1110. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  1111. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  1112. wrote [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  1113. ** New packages in core
  1114. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  1115. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  1116. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1117. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  1118. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  1119. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  1120. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  1121. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  1122. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  1123. ** New packages in contrib
  1124. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  1125. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  1126. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  1127. code.
  1128. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1129. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  1130. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  1131. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  1132. entries.
  1133. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1134. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  1135. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  1136. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  1137. Also see [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  1138. for starting headlines.
  1139. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  1140. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  1141. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  1142. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  1143. [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  1144. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  1145. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  1146. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  1147. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  1148. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1149. using =deck.js=.
  1150. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  1151. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1152. using =s5=.
  1153. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  1154. The [[http://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  1155. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  1156. output.
  1157. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  1158. conversion from Org files to groff.
  1159. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  1160. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  1161. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  1162. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  1163. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  1164. entirely with Org.
  1165. ** New features
  1166. *** Export
  1167. **** New export generic options
  1168. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  1169. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  1170. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  1171. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  1172. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  1173. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  1174. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  1175. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  1176. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  1177. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  1178. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  1179. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  1180. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  1181. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  1182. contains time-stamps.
  1183. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  1184. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  1185. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  1186. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  1187. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  1188. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  1189. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  1190. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  1191. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  1192. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  1193. *** Structure editing
  1194. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  1195. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  1196. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  1197. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  1198. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  1199. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  1200. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  1201. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  1202. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  1203. region.
  1204. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  1205. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  1206. _words__= will preserve markup.
  1207. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  1208. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  1209. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  1210. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  1211. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  1212. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  1213. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  1214. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  1215. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  1216. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  1217. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  1218. forward and backward.
  1219. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  1220. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  1221. Now Org will sort this list
  1222. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1223. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1224. like this:
  1225. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  1226. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  1227. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  1228. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  1229. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  1230. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  1231. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  1232. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  1233. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  1234. local variable.
  1235. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  1236. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  1237. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  1238. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  1239. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  1240. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  1241. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  1242. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  1243. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  1244. option to =nil=.
  1245. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  1246. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  1247. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  1248. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  1249. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  1250. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  1251. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  1252. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  1253. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  1254. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  1255. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  1256. *** Scheduled/deadline
  1257. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  1258. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  1259. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  1260. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  1261. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  1262. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  1263. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  1264. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  1265. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  1266. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  1267. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  1268. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  1269. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  1270. control this globally or per agenda.
  1271. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  1272. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  1273. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  1274. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  1275. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  1276. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  1277. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  1278. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  1279. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  1280. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1281. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  1282. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  1283. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  1284. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  1285. (kbd "@")
  1286. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  1287. #+END_SRC
  1288. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  1289. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  1290. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  1291. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  1292. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  1293. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  1294. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  1295. only show their description, not the full links.
  1296. *** Agenda
  1297. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  1298. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  1299. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  1300. want to build a list of appointments.
  1301. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  1302. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  1303. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  1304. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  1305. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  1306. time value (i.e. appointments).
  1307. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  1308. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  1309. | Strategy | Explanations |
  1310. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  1311. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  1312. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  1313. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  1314. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  1315. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  1316. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  1317. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  1318. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  1319. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  1320. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  1321. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  1322. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  1323. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  1324. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  1325. These new options are available:
  1326. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  1327. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  1328. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  1329. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  1330. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  1331. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  1332. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  1333. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  1334. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  1335. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  1336. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  1337. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  1338. non-tagged headlines.
  1339. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  1340. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  1341. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  1342. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  1343. that take only =N= minutes.
  1344. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  1345. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  1346. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  1347. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  1348. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  1349. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  1350. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  1351. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  1352. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  1353. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  1354. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  1355. list of notes.
  1356. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  1357. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  1358. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  1359. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  1360. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  1361. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  1362. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  1363. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  1364. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  1365. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  1366. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  1367. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  1368. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  1369. outline tree.
  1370. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  1371. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  1372. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  1373. asks for a confirmation.
  1374. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  1375. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  1376. the mark of the entry at point.
  1377. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  1378. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  1379. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  1380. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  1381. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  1382. level 1.
  1383. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  1384. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  1385. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  1386. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  1387. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  1388. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  1389. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  1390. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  1391. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  1392. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  1393. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  1394. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  1395. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  1396. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  1397. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  1398. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  1399. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  1400. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  1401. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  1402. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  1403. Read the full docstring for details.
  1404. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  1405. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  1406. : * Task
  1407. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  1408. *** Capture
  1409. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  1410. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  1411. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  1412. capture template.
  1413. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  1414. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  1415. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  1416. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  1417. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  1418. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  1419. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  1420. check against the name of the buffer.
  1421. *** Tag groups
  1422. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  1423. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  1424. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  1425. of those tags.)
  1426. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  1427. agenda views, and for filtering.
  1428. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  1429. *** Links
  1430. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  1431. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  1432. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  1433. through new link protocols (see [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  1434. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  1435. as if the protocol was not known.
  1436. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  1437. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  1438. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  1439. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  1440. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  1441. active.
  1442. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  1443. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  1444. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  1445. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  1446. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  1447. When storing a link to a headline like
  1448. : * See [[http://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  1449. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  1450. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  1451. there is no description.
  1452. *** Table
  1453. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  1454. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  1455. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  1456. those other formulas.
  1457. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  1458. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  1459. [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  1460. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  1461. the end.
  1462. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  1463. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  1464. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  1465. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  1466. doing computation.
  1467. **** New lookup functions
  1468. There are now three lookup functions:
  1469. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  1470. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  1471. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  1472. See [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  1473. *** Startup keywords
  1474. These new startup keywords are now available:
  1475. | Startup keyword | Option |
  1476. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1477. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  1478. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  1479. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1480. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  1481. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  1482. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  1483. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  1484. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  1485. *** Clocking
  1486. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  1487. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  1488. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  1489. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  1490. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  1491. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  1492. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  1493. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  1494. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  1495. the clocktable.
  1496. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  1497. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  1498. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  1499. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  1500. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  1501. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  1502. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  1503. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  1504. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  1505. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  1506. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  1507. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  1508. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  1509. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  1510. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  1511. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  1512. *** Babel
  1513. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  1514. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  1515. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  1516. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  1517. same target than the block at point.
  1518. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  1519. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  1520. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  1521. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  1522. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  1523. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  1524. time.
  1525. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  1526. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  1527. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  1528. manual for a usage example.
  1529. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  1530. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  1531. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  1532. collecting blocks for tangling.
  1533. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  1534. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  1535. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  1536. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  1537. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  1538. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  1539. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  1540. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  1541. *** Faces
  1542. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  1543. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  1544. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  1545. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  1546. ** Miscellaneous
  1547. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  1548. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  1549. - [[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]]
  1550. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  1551. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  1552. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  1553. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  1554. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  1555. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  1556. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  1557. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  1558. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  1559. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  1560. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  1561. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  1562. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  1563. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  1564. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports MacOSX version up to 10.8
  1565. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  1566. ** Outside Org
  1567. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  1568. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  1569. You can read the [[http://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  1570. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  1571. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  1572. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  1573. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  1574. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  1575. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  1576. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  1577. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  1578. found here: http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  1579. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  1580. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  1581. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  1582. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  1583. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  1584. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  1585. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  1586. * Version 7.9.3
  1587. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  1588. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  1589. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  1590. agenda views.)
  1591. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  1592. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  1593. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  1594. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  1595. agenda type to this variable.
  1596. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  1597. generation.
  1598. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  1599. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  1600. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  1601. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  1602. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  1603. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  1604. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  1605. invisible) blocked tasks.
  1606. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  1607. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  1608. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  1609. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  1610. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  1611. ** No GPL manual anymore
  1612. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  1613. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  1614. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  1615. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  1616. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  1617. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  1618. in most environments.
  1619. * Version 7.9.2
  1620. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  1621. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  1622. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1623. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  1624. #+END_SRC
  1625. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  1626. available through http://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  1627. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  1628. directory.)
  1629. See http://orgmode.org/elpa/
  1630. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  1631. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |

  1646. ** New package and Babel language
  1647. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  1648. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  1649. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  1650. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  1651. ** Incompatible changes
  1652. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  1653. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  1654. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  1655. instead.
  1656. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  1657. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  1658. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  1659. ** New features and user-visible changes
  1660. *** Org Element
  1661. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  1662. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  1663. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  1664. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  1665. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  1666. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  1667. See the docstrings for more details.
  1668. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  1669. on =org-element.el=.
  1670. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  1671. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  1672. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  1673. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  1674. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  1675. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  1676. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  1677. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  1678. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  1679. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  1680. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  1681. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  1682. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  1683. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  1684. elements.
  1685. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  1686. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  1687. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  1688. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  1689. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  1690. item. Etc.
  1691. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  1692. the whole list.
  1693. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  1694. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  1695. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  1696. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  1697. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  1698. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  1699. the same level.
  1700. *** Org Agenda
  1701. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  1702. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  1703. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  1704. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  1705. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  1706. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  1707. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  1708. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  1709. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  1710. generating new ones.
  1711. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  1712. agenda buffer.
  1713. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  1714. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  1715. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  1716. to this value
  1717. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1718. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  1719. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  1720. #+END_SRC
  1721. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  1722. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  1723. details on how to use this.
  1724. **** Changes in bulk actions
  1725. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  1726. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  1727. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  1728. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  1729. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  1730. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  1731. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  1732. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  1733. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  1734. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  1735. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  1736. =t=.
  1737. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  1738. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  1739. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  1740. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  1741. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  1742. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  1743. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  1744. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  1745. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  1746. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  1747. =f= or =w=).
  1748. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  1749. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  1750. of deadline.
  1751. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  1752. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  1753. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  1754. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  1755. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  1756. several times.
  1757. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  1758. See the [[http://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  1759. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  1760. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  1761. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  1762. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  1763. filters and category filters.
  1764. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  1765. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  1766. configuration.
  1767. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  1768. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  1769. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  1770. point.
  1771. *** Org Links
  1772. **** Inserting links
  1773. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  1774. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  1775. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  1776. want to insert.
  1777. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  1778. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  1779. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  1780. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  1781. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  1782. highlighted.
  1783. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  1784. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  1785. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  1786. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  1787. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  1788. **** New link type =help=
  1789. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  1790. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  1791. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  1792. you go back to the same buffer.
  1793. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  1794. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  1795. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  1796. =org-stored-links=.
  1797. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  1798. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  1799. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  1800. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  1801. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  1802. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  1803. *** Org Editing
  1804. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  1805. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  1806. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  1807. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  1808. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  1809. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  1810. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  1811. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  1812. all headlines in the region.
  1813. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  1814. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  1815. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  1816. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  1817. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  1818. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  1819. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  1820. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  1821. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  1822. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  1823. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  1824. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  1825. undo RET=.
  1826. *** Org Clock
  1827. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  1828. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  1829. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  1830. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  1831. clocked entry, if any.
  1832. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  1833. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  1834. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  1835. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  1836. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  1837. out.
  1838. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  1839. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  1840. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  1841. arguments).
  1842. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  1843. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  1844. in.
  1845. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  1846. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  1847. cells in clockreport.
  1848. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  1849. time cells in clockreport.
  1850. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  1851. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  1852. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  1853. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  1854. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  1855. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  1856. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  1857. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  1858. space in the frame title.
  1859. *** Org Appearance
  1860. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  1861. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  1862. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  1863. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  1864. don't want to see temporarily.
  1865. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  1866. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  1867. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1868. There are these new entities:
  1869. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  1870. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  1871. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  1872. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  1873. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  1874. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  1875. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  1876. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  1877. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  1878. The face is back to a normal height.
  1879. *** Org Columns
  1880. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  1881. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  1882. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  1883. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  1884. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  1885. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  1886. block will use its value as the column format.
  1887. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  1888. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  1889. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  1890. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  1891. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  1892. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  1893. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  1894. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  1895. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  1896. You can now use
  1897. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  1898. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  1899. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  1900. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  1901. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  1902. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  1903. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  1904. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  1905. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  1906. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  1907. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  1908. *** Org Capture
  1909. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  1910. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  1911. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  1912. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  1913. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  1914. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  1915. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  1916. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  1917. set to this value
  1918. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1919. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  1920. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  1921. #+END_SRC
  1922. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  1923. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  1924. more details on how to use this.
  1925. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  1926. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  1927. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  1928. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  1929. =nil=.
  1930. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  1931. See the manual for more explanations.
  1932. **** More control over empty lines
  1933. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  1934. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  1935. explanations.
  1936. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  1937. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  1938. *** Org Export
  1939. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  1940. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  1941. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  1942. available) to print beautiful tables.
  1943. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  1944. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  1945. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  1946. the table.
  1947. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  1948. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  1949. in the #+DATE option.
  1950. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  1951. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  1952. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  1953. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  1954. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  1955. More languages are always welcome.
  1956. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  1957. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  1958. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  1959. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  1960. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[http://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  1961. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  1962. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  1963. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  1964. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  1965. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  1966. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  1967. *** Org Babel
  1968. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  1969. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  1970. supported.
  1971. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  1972. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  1973. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  1974. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  1975. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  1976. It used to exports the results of the code.
  1977. *** Miscellaneous
  1978. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  1979. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  1980. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  1981. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  1982. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  1983. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  1984. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  1985. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  1986. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  1987. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  1988. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  1989. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  1990. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  1991. alarm.
  1992. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  1993. This will increment the effort value.
  1994. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  1995. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  1996. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  1997. attach symbolic links.
  1998. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  1999. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2000. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2001. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2002. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2003. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2004. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2005. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2006. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2007. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2008. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2009. all top level list items.
  2010. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2011. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2012. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2013. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2014. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2015. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2016. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2017. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2018. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2019. first headline in the region.
  2020. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2021. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2022. agenda.
  2023. ** Important bug fixes
  2024. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2025. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2026. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2027. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2028. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2029. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2030. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2031. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2032. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2033. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2034. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2035. license.
  2036. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2037. the code and the license to your needs.
  2038. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2039. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2040. * Version 7.8.11
  2041. ** Incompatible changes
  2042. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  2043. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[http://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  2044. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  2045. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  2046. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  2047. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  2048. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  2049. last-minute save.
  2050. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  2051. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  2052. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  2053. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  2054. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  2055. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  2056. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  2057. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  2058. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  2059. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  2060. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  2061. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  2062. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  2063. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  2064. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  2065. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  2066. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  2067. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  2068. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  2069. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  2070. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  2071. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  2072. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  2073. #+end_src
  2074. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  2075. setup./
  2076. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  2077. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  2078. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  2079. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  2080. The two new variables are:
  2081. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  2082. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  2083. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  2084. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  2085. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  2086. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  2087. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  2088. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  2089. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  2090. classes.
  2091. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  2092. document are:
  2093. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  2094. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  2095. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  2096. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  2097. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  2098. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  2099. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  2100. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  2101. #+begin_example
  2102. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  2103. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  2104. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  2105. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  2106. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  2107. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  2108. #+end_example
  2109. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  2110. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  2111. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  2112. applies to the following packages:
  2113. - inputenc
  2114. - fontenc
  2115. - fixltx2e
  2116. - graphicx
  2117. - longtable
  2118. - float
  2119. - wrapfig
  2120. - soul
  2121. - t1enc
  2122. - textcomp
  2123. - marvosym
  2124. - wasysym
  2125. - latexsym
  2126. - amssymb
  2127. - hyperref
  2128. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  2129. you are using, you can remove it from
  2130. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  2131. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  2132. properly.
  2133. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  2134. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  2135. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  2136. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  2137. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  2138. the header.
  2139. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  2140. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  2141. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  2142. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  2143. code using it.
  2144. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  2145. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  2146. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  2147. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  2148. ** Important new features
  2149. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  2150. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  2151. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  2152. for more information on how to customize it.
  2153. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  2154. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  2155. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  2156. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  2157. section [[http://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  2158. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  2159. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  2160. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  2161. To switch over to the new system:
  2162. 1. Run
  2163. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  2164. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  2165. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  2166. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  2167. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  2168. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  2169. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  2170. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  2171. customization.
  2172. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  2173. with org-remember:
  2174. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  2175. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  2176. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  2177. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  2178. with using both system in parallel.
  2179. ** New libraries
  2180. *** New Org libraries
  2181. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  2182. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  2183. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  2184. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  2185. To use, put the following in your init file:
  2186. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2187. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  2188. #+END_EXAMPLE
  2189. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  2190. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  2191. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  2192. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  2193. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  2194. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  2195. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  2196. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  2197. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  2198. anything.
  2199. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  2200. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  2201. He also wrote a [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  2202. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  2203. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  2204. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  2205. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  2206. /org-ctags.el/.
  2207. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  2208. call function to do something special with text links.
  2209. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  2210. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  2211. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  2212. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  2213. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  2214. Org-mode manual:
  2215. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  2216. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  2217. *** New Babel libraries
  2218. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  2219. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  2220. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  2221. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  2222. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  2223. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  2224. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  2225. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  2226. *** Hyperlinks
  2227. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  2228. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  2229. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  2230. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  2231. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  2232. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  2233. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  2234. The key new functions are
  2235. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  2236. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  2237. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  2238. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  2239. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  2240. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  2241. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  2242. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  2243. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  2244. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  2245. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  2246. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  2247. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  2248. **** Modified link escaping
  2249. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  2250. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  2251. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  2252. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  2253. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  2254. : link).
  2255. :
  2256. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  2257. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  2258. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  2259. : percent escaped links are solved.
  2260. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  2261. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  2262. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  2263. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  2264. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  2265. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  2266. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  2267. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  2268. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  2269. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  2270. string to be executed.
  2271. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  2272. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  2273. to org-file-apps:
  2274. #+begin_example
  2275. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  2276. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  2277. #+end_example
  2278. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  2279. *** Dates and time
  2280. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  2281. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  2282. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  2283. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  2284. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  2285. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  2286. will work on the current entry.
  2287. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  2288. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  2289. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  2290. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  2291. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  2292. #+begin_example
  2293. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  2294. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  2295. #+end_example
  2296. *** Agenda
  2297. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  2298. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  2299. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  2300. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  2301. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  2302. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  2303. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  2304. entries using a function.
  2305. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  2306. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  2307. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  2308. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  2309. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  2310. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  2311. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  2312. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  2313. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  2314. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  2315. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  2316. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  2317. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  2318. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  2319. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  2320. *** Exporting
  2321. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  2322. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  2323. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  2324. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  2325. docstring of these variable for details about available
  2326. %-sequences.
  2327. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  2328. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  2329. formatting string will insert a string.
  2330. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  2331. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  2332. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  2333. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  2334. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  2335. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  2336. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  2337. C-e u=, respectively.
  2338. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  2339. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  2340. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  2341. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  2342. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  2343. your preference.
  2344. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  2345. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  2346. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  2347. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  2348. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  2349. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  2350. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  2351. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  2352. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  2353. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  2354. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[http://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  2355. section]] in the manual for more details.
  2356. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  2357. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  2358. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  2359. individual could.
  2360. *** Refiling
  2361. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  2362. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  2363. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  2364. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  2365. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  2366. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  2367. **** New logging support for refiling
  2368. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  2369. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  2370. =org-log-refile=.
  2371. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  2372. *** Completion
  2373. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  2374. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  2375. *** Tables
  2376. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  2377. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  2378. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  2379. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  2380. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  2381. the displayed in the buffer.
  2382. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  2383. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  2384. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  2385. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  2386. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  2387. |--------+--------+---------|
  2388. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  2389. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  2390. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  2391. optional.
  2392. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  2393. feedback on this.
  2394. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  2395. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  2396. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  2397. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  2398. : things like
  2399. :
  2400. : @3=
  2401. : @2$2..@5$7=
  2402. : @I$2..@II$4=
  2403. :
  2404. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  2405. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  2406. : table.
  2407. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  2408. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  2409. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  2410. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  2411. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  2412. *** Lists
  2413. **** Improved handling of lists
  2414. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  2415. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  2416. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  2417. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  2418. indented than it.
  2419. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  2420. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  2421. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  2422. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  2423. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  2424. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  2425. `org-list-export-context'.
  2426. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  2427. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  2428. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  2429. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  2430. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  2431. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  2432. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  2433. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  2434. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  2435. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  2436. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  2437. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  2438. *** Inline display of linked images
  2439. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  2440. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  2441. that have no description part will be inlined.
  2442. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  2443. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  2444. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  2445. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  2446. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  2447. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  2448. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  2449. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  2450. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  2451. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  2452. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  2453. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  2454. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  2455. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  2456. tangling
  2457. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  2458. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  2459. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  2460. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  2461. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  2462. properties or in tables.
  2463. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  2464. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  2465. names, and rownames across all languages.
  2466. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  2467. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  2468. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  2469. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  2470. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  2471. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  2472. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  2473. request by Scott Otterson.
  2474. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  2475. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  2476. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  2477. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  2478. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  2479. superscripts, see the variable
  2480. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  2481. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  2482. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  2483. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  2484. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  2485. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  2486. following new faces:
  2487. =org-document-title=
  2488. =org-document-info=
  2489. =org-document-info-keyword=
  2490. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  2491. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  2492. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  2493. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  2494. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  2495. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  2496. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  2497. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  2498. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  2499. property is affected by this setting.
  2500. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  2501. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  2502. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  2503. Requested by Michael Brand.
  2504. **** Better level cycling function
  2505. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  2506. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  2507. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  2508. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  2509. **** Adaptive filling
  2510. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  2511. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  2512. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  2513. comments to be filled correctly.
  2514. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  2515. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  2516. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  2517. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  2518. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  2519. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  2520. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  2521. *** Clocking
  2522. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  2523. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  2524. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  2525. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  2526. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  2527. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  2528. **** Localized clock tables
  2529. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  2530. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  2531. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  2532. available translated strings.
  2533. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  2534. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  2535. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  2536. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  2537. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  2538. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  2539. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  2540. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  2541. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  2542. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  2543. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  2544. =nil=.
  2545. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  2546. *** Misc
  2547. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  2548. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  2549. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  2550. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  2551. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  2552. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  2553. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  2554. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  2555. property) back.
  2556. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  2557. change.
  2558. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  2559. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  2560. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  2561. #+begin_example
  2562. org-table-get
  2563. org-table-put
  2564. org-table-current-line
  2565. org-table-goto-line
  2566. #+end_example
  2567. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  2568. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  2569. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  2570. node.
  2571. This was requested by Tom.
  2572. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  2573. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  2574. example by viewing from the agenda.
  2575. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
