  21. ** New package and Babel langage
  22. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  23. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[][Eshell]].
  24. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  25. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  26. ** Incompatible changes
  27. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  28. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  29. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  30. instead.
  31. ** New features and user-visible changes
  32. *** Org Element
  33. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analysing "elements"
  34. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  35. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  36. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  37. Two functions might be particularily handy for users:
  38. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  39. See the docstrings for more details.
  40. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  41. on =org-element.el=.
  42. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  43. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  44. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  45. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  46. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  47. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  48. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  49. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  50. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  51. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  52. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  53. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  54. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  55. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  56. elements.
  57. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  58. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  59. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  60. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  61. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  62. item. Etc.
  63. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  64. the whole list.
  65. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  66. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  67. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  68. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  69. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  70. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  71. the same level.
  72. *** Org Agenda
  73. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  74. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  75. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  76. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  77. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  78. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  79. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  80. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  81. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  82. generating new ones.
  83. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  84. agenda buffer.
  85. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  86. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  87. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  88. to this value
  89. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  90. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  91. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  92. #+END_SRC
  93. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  94. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  95. details on how to use this.
  96. **** Changes in bulk actions
  97. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  98. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  99. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  100. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  101. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  102. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  103. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  104. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  105. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  106. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  107. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  108. =t=.
  109. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  110. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  111. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  112. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  113. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  114. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  115. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  116. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  117. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  118. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  119. =f= or =w=).
  120. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  121. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  122. of deadline.
  123. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  124. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  125. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  126. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  127. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  128. several times.
  129. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  130. See the [[][git commit]] for more explanations.
  131. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  132. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  133. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  134. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  135. filters and category filters.
  136. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  137. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  138. configuration.
  139. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  140. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  141. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  142. point.
  143. *** Org Links
  144. **** Inserting links
  145. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  146. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  147. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  148. want to insert.
  149. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  150. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  151. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  152. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  153. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  154. highlighted.
  155. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  156. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  157. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  158. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  159. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  160. **** New link type =help=
  161. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  162. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  163. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  164. you go back to the same buffer.
  165. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  166. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  167. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  168. =org-stored-links=.
  169. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  170. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  171. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  172. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  173. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  174. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  175. *** Org Editing
  176. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  177. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  178. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  179. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  180. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  181. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  182. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  183. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  184. all headlines in the region.
  185. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  186. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  187. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  188. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  189. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  190. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  191. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  192. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  193. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  194. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  195. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  196. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  197. undo RET=.
  198. *** Org Clock
  199. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  200. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  201. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  202. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  203. clocked entry, if any.
  204. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  205. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  206. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  207. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  208. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  209. out.
  210. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  211. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  212. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  213. arguments).
  214. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  215. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  216. in.
  217. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  218. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  219. cells in clockreport.
  220. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  221. time cells in clockreport.
  222. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  223. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  224. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  225. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  226. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  227. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  228. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  229. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  230. space in the frame title.
  231. *** Org Appearance
  232. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  233. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  234. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  235. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  236. don't want to see temporarily.
  237. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  238. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  239. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  240. There are these new entities:
  241. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  242. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  243. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  244. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  245. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  246. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  247. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  248. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  249. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  250. The face is back to a normal height.
  251. *** Org Columns
  252. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  253. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  254. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  255. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  256. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  257. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  258. block will use its value as the column format.
  259. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  260. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  261. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  262. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  263. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  264. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  265. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  266. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  267. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  268. You can now use
  269. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  270. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  271. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  272. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  273. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  274. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  275. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  276. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  277. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  278. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  279. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  280. *** Org Capture
  281. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  282. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  283. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  284. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  285. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  286. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  287. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  288. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  289. set to this value
  290. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  291. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  292. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  293. #+END_SRC
  294. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  295. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  296. more details on how to use this.
  297. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  298. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  299. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  300. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  301. =nil=.
  302. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  303. See the manual for more explanations.
  304. **** More control over empty lines
  305. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  306. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  307. explanations.
  308. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  309. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  310. *** Org Export
  311. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  312. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  313. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  314. available) to print beautiful tables.
  315. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  316. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  317. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  318. the table.
  319. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  320. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  321. in the #+DATE option.
  322. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  323. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  324. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  325. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  326. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  327. More languages are always welcome.
  328. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  329. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  330. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  331. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  332. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[][this commit]] for details)
  333. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  334. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  335. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  336. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  337. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  338. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  339. *** Miscellaneous
  340. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  341. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  342. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  343. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  344. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  345. alarm.
  346. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  347. This will increment the effort value.
  348. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  349. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  350. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  351. attach symbolic links.
  352. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  353. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  354. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  355. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  356. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  357. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  358. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  359. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  360. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  361. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  362. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  363. all top level list items.
  364. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  365. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  366. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  367. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  368. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  369. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  370. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  371. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  372. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  373. first headline in the region.
  374. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  375. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  376. agenda.
  377. ** Important bug fixes
  378. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  379. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  380. perform completion with meaningful values.
  381. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  382. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  383. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  384. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  385. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  386. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  387. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  388. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  389. license.
  390. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  391. the code and the license to your needs.
  392. See for
  393. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  394. * Version 7.8.11
  395. ** Incompatible changes
  396. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  397. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[][version 6.36c]] instead.
  398. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  399. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  400. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  401. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  402. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  403. last-minute save.
  404. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  405. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  406. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  407. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  408. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  409. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  410. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  411. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  412. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  413. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  414. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  415. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  416. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  417. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  418. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  419. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  420. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  421. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  422. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  423. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  424. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  425. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  426. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  427. #+end_src
  428. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  429. setup./
  430. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  431. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  432. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  433. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  434. The two new variables are:
  435. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  436. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  437. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  438. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  439. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  440. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  441. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  442. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  443. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  444. classes.
  445. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  446. document are:
  447. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  448. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  449. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  450. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  451. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  452. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  453. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  454. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  455. #+begin_example
  456. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  457. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  458. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  459. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  460. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  461. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  462. #+end_example
  463. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  464. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  465. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  466. applies to the following packages:
  467. - inputenc
  468. - fontenc
  469. - fixltx2e
  470. - graphicx
  471. - longtable
  472. - float
  473. - wrapfig
  474. - soul
  475. - t1enc
  476. - textcomp
  477. - marvosym
  478. - wasysym
  479. - latexsym
  480. - amssymb
  481. - hyperref
  482. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  483. you are using, you can remove it from
  484. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  485. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  486. properly.
  487. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  488. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  489. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  490. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  491. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  492. the header.
  493. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  494. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  495. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  496. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  497. code using it.
  498. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  499. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  500. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  501. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  502. ** Important new features
  503. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  504. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  505. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  506. for more information on how to customize it.
  507. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  508. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  509. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  510. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  511. section [[][chapter about remember]].
  512. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  513. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  514. [[][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  515. To switch over to the new system:
  516. 1. Run
  517. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  518. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  519. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  520. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  521. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  522. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  523. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  524. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  525. customization.
  526. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  527. with org-remember:
  528. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  529. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  530. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  531. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  532. with using both system in parallel.
  533. ** New libraries
  534. *** New Org libraries
  535. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  536. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  537. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  538. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  539. To use, put the following in your init file:
  541. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  542. #+END_EXAMPLE
  543. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  544. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  545. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  546. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  547. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  548. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  549. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  550. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  551. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  552. anything.
  553. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  554. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  555. He also wrote a [[][tutorial]] for it.
  556. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  557. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  558. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  559. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  560. /org-ctags.el/.
  561. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  562. call function to do something special with text links.
  563. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  564. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  565. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  566. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  567. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  568. Org-mode manual:
  569. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  570. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  571. *** New Babel libraries
  572. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  573. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  574. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  575. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  576. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  577. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  578. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  579. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  580. *** Hyperlinks
  581. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  582. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  583. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  584. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  585. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  586. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  587. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  588. The key new functions are
  589. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  590. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  591. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  592. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  593. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  594. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  595. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  596. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  597. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  598. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  599. You can now create links from messages. This is particularily
  600. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  601. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  602. **** Modified link escaping
  603. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[][his message]]:
  604. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  605. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  606. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  607. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  608. : link).
  609. :
  610. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  611. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  612. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  613. : percent escaped links are solved.
  614. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  615. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  616. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  617. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  618. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  619. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  620. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  621. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  622. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  623. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  624. string to be executed.
  625. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  626. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  627. to org-file-apps:
  628. #+begin_example
  629. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  630. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  631. #+end_example
  632. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  633. *** Dates and time
  634. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  635. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  636. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  637. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  638. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  639. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  640. will work on the current entry.
  641. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  642. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  643. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  644. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  645. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  646. #+begin_example
  647. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  648. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  649. #+end_example
  650. *** Agenda
  651. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  652. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  653. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  654. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  655. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  656. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  657. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  658. entries using a function.
  659. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  660. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  661. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  662. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  663. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  664. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  665. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  666. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  667. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  668. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  669. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  670. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  671. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  672. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  673. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  674. *** Exporting
  675. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  676. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  677. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  678. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  679. docstring of these variable for details about available
  680. %-sequences.
  681. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  682. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  683. formatting string will insert a string.
  684. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  685. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  686. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  687. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  688. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  689. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  690. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  691. C-e u=, respectively.
  692. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  693. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  694. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  695. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  696. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  697. your preference.
  698. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  699. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  700. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  701. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  702. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  703. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  704. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  705. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  706. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  707. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  708. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[][BEAMER
  709. section]] in the manual for more details.
  710. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  711. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  712. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  713. individual could.
  714. *** Refiling
  715. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  716. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  717. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  718. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  719. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  720. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  721. **** New logging support for refiling
  722. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  723. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  724. =org-log-refile=.
  725. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  726. *** Completion
  727. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegleys pcomplete.el
  728. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  729. *** Tables
  730. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  731. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  732. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  733. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  734. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  735. the displayed in the buffer.
  736. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  737. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  738. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  739. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  740. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  741. |--------+--------+---------|
  742. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  743. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  744. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  745. optional.
  746. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  747. feedback on this.
  748. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  749. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  750. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  751. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  752. : things like
  753. :
  754. : @3=
  755. : @2$2..@5$7=
  756. : @I$2..@II$4=
  757. :
  758. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  759. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  760. : table.
  761. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  762. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  763. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  764. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  765. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  766. *** Lists
  767. **** Improved handling of lists
  768. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  769. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  770. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  771. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  772. indented than it.
  773. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  774. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  775. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  776. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  777. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  778. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  779. `org-list-export-context'.
  780. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  781. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  782. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  783. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  784. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  785. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  786. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  787. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  788. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  789. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  790. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  791. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  792. *** Inline display of linked images
  793. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  794. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  795. that have no description part will be inlined.
  796. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  797. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  798. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  799. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  800. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  801. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  802. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  803. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  804. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  805. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  806. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  807. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  808. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  809. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  810. tangling
  811. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  812. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  813. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  814. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  815. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  816. properties or in tables.
  817. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  818. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  819. names, and rownames across all languages.
  820. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  821. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  822. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  823. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  824. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  825. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  826. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  827. request by Scott Otterson.
  828. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  829. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  830. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  831. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  832. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  833. superscripts, see the variable
  834. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  835. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  836. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  837. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  838. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  839. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  840. following new faces:
  841. =org-document-title=
  842. =org-document-info=
  843. =org-document-info-keyword=
  844. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  845. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  846. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  847. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  848. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  849. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  850. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  851. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  852. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  853. property is affected by this setting.
  854. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  855. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  856. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  857. Requested by Michael Brand.
  858. **** Better level cycling function
  859. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  860. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  861. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  862. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  863. **** Adaptive filling
  864. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  865. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  866. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  867. comments to be filled correctly.
  868. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  869. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  870. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  871. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  872. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  873. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  874. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  875. *** Clocking
  876. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  877. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  878. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  879. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  880. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  881. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  882. **** Localized clock tables
  883. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  884. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  885. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  886. available translated strings.
  887. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  888. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  889. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  890. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  891. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  892. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  893. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  894. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  895. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  896. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  897. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  898. =nil=.
  899. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  900. *** Misc
  901. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  902. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  903. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  904. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  905. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  906. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  907. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  908. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  909. property) back.
  910. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  911. change.
  912. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  913. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  914. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  915. #+begin_example
  916. org-table-get
  917. org-table-put
  918. org-table-current-line
  919. org-table-goto-line
  920. #+end_example
  921. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  922. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  923. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  924. node.
  925. This was requested by Tom.
  926. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  927. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  928. example by viewing from the agenda.
  929. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
