  8. * Version 9.3
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  11. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  12. bracket links.
  13. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  14. to the following rules, applied in order:
  15. 1. All consecutive =\= characters at the end of the link must be
  16. escaped;
  17. 2. Any =]= character at the very end of the link must be escaped;
  18. 3. All consecutive =\= characters preceding =][= or =]]= patterns must
  19. be escaped;
  20. 4. Any =]= character followed by either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  21. 5. Others =]= and =\= characters need not be escaped.
  22. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  23. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  24. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  25. syntax:
  26. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  27. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  28. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  29. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  30. is non-nil."
  31. (interactive "P")
  32. (org-with-point-at 1
  33. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  34. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  35. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  36. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  37. (= (match-beginning 0)
  38. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  39. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  40. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  41. (uri-end (save-excursion
  42. (goto-char uri-start)
  43. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  44. (match-beginning 0)))
  45. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end))
  46. (start 0))
  47. (when (catch :obsolete
  48. (while (string-match "%\\(..\\)?" uri start)
  49. (setq start (match-end 0))
  50. (unless (member (match-string 1 uri)
  51. '("25" "5B" "5D" "20"))
  52. (throw :obsolete nil)))
  53. (or no-query
  54. (y-or-n-p
  55. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Update?"
  56. uri))))
  57. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  58. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  59. #+end_src
  60. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  61. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  62. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  63. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  64. group 3.
  65. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  66. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  67. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  68. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  69. behavior will not happend automatically.
  70. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  71. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  72. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  73. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  74. it is.
  75. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  76. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  77. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  78. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  79. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  80. You can get the old behaviour back with the following:
  81. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  82. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  83. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  84. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  85. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  86. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  87. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  88. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  89. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  90. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  91. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  92. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  93. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  94. since now it's implicitly always true.
  95. ** New features
  96. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  97. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  98. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  99. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  100. numbered list to a lettered list.
  101. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  102. You can add dynamic block into ~org-dynamic-block-alist~ with function
  103. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All dynamic blocks in
  104. ~org-dynamic-block-define~ can be used by
  105. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  106. *** Babel
  107. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  108. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  109. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  110. parameter.
  111. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  112. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  113. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  114. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  115. changes in the buffer.
  116. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  117. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  118. a headline.
  119. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  120. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  121. ~:caption~.
  122. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  123. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  124. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  125. attachement directory.
  126. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  127. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  128. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  129. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  130. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  131. interpreted as publicly visable, accessible to a specific group, and
  132. private respectively.
  133. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  134. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  135. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  136. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  137. system than the main Org document. For example:
  138. #+begin_example
  139. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  140. #+end_example
  141. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  142. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  143. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  144. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  145. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  146. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  147. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  148. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  149. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  150. LaTeX font locking.
  151. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learnt to shift backward in time
  152. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  153. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  154. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  155. days in the past.
  156. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  157. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  158. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  159. This is a function for convenience.
  160. ** New functions
  161. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  162. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  163. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  164. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  165. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  166. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  167. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  168. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  169. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  170. ** Removed functions
  171. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  172. It was unused throughout the code base.
  173. ** Miscellaneous
  174. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  175. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  176. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  177. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  178. *** No more special indentation for description items
  179. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  180. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  181. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  182. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  183. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  184. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  185. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  186. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  187. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  188. interface.
  189. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  190. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  191. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  192. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  193. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  194. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  195. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  196. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  197. * Version 9.2
  198. ** Incompatible changes
  199. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  200. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  201. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  202. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  203. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  204. to use orgalist.el, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  205. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  206. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  207. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  208. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  209. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  210. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  211. you probably need to udpate it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  212. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  213. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  214. : (require 'org-tempo)
  215. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  216. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  217. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  218. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  219. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  220. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  221. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  222. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  223. unique, Noweb reference.
  224. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  225. ,#+NAME: foo
  226. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  227. 1
  228. ,#+END_SRC
  229. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  230. 2
  231. ,#+END_SRC
  232. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  233. <<foo>>
  234. ,#+END_SRC
  235. #+END_SRC
  236. should become
  237. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  238. ,#+NAME: foo
  239. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  240. 1
  241. ,#+END_SRC
  242. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  243. 2
  244. ,#+END_SRC
  245. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  246. <<bar>>
  247. ,#+END_SRC
  248. #+END_SRC
  249. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  250. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  251. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  252. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  253. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  254. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  255. :
  256. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  257. Check the full docstring for more.
  258. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  259. Here is the new docstring:
  260. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  261. :
  262. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  263. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  264. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  265. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  266. : variables is set.
  267. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  268. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  269. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  270. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  271. examples:
  272. #+begin_example
  273. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  274. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  275. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  276. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  277. #+end_example
  278. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  279. #+begin_example
  280. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  281. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  282. #+end_example
  283. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  284. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  285. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  286. aligning.
  287. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  288. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  289. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  290. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  291. #+END_EXAMPLE
  292. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  293. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  294. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  295. local tags. In order to get the old behaviour back, you can use:
  296. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  297. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  298. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  299. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  300. code-point.
  301. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  302. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  303. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  304. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  305. dedicated column.
  306. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  307. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  308. ** New features
  309. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  310. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  311. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  312. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  313. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  314. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  315. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  316. #+begin_src clojure :session
  317. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  318. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  319. #+end_src
  320. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  321. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  322. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  323. #+begin_example
  324. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  325. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  326. ,#+end_src
  327. ,#+results:
  328. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  329. #+end_example
  330. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  331. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  332. console.log("stardiviner")
  333. #+end_src
  334. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  335. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  336. console.log("stardiviner")
  337. #+end_src
  338. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  339. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  340. console.log("stardiviner")
  341. #+end_src
  342. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  343. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  344. add a label to the rendered equation.
  345. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  346. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  347. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  348. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  349. manual for details.
  350. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  351. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  352. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  353. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  354. ,* Top [1/2]
  355. ,** DONE Completed
  356. ,** TODO Working
  357. #+END_SRC
  358. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  359. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  360. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  361. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  362. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  363. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  364. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  365. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  366. its previous state.
  367. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  368. size.
  369. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  370. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  371. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  372. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  373. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  374. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  375. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  376. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  377. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  378. prop
  379. "0")))
  380. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  381. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  382. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  383. #+END_SRC
  384. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  385. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  386. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  387. ,* All shipments
  388. ,** Shipment 1
  389. :PROPERTIES:
  390. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  391. :Bananas: 4
  392. :END:
  393. ,** Shipment 2
  394. :PROPERTIES:
  395. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  396. :BANANAS: 7
  397. :END:
  398. #+END_SRC
  399. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  400. you should expect to see something like:
  401. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  402. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  403. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  404. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  405. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  406. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  407. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  408. #+END_EXAMPLE
  409. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  410. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  411. matcher.
  412. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  413. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  414. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  415. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  416. parameters. See example bellow.
  417. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  418. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  419. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  420. select sysdate from dual;
  421. ,#+END_SRC
  422. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  423. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  424. select sysdate from dual;
  425. ,#+END_SRC
  426. #+END_SRC
  427. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  428. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  429. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  430. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  431. remove it.
  432. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  433. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  434. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  435. ** New commands and functions
  436. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  437. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  438. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  439. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  440. See docstring for details.
  441. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  442. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  443. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  444. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  445. See docstring for details.
  446. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  447. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  448. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  449. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  450. will go back to the widen state.
  451. *** ~org-browse-news~
  452. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read informations
  453. about the last major release.
  454. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  455. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  456. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  457. on the context.
  458. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  459. ** Removed commands and functions
  460. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  461. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  462. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  463. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  464. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  465. It was not used throughout the code base.
  466. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  467. It was not used throughout code base.
  468. *** ~org-context-p~
  469. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  470. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  471. It is no longer used in the code base.
  472. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  473. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  474. ** Removed options
  475. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  476. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  477. ** Miscellaneous
  478. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  479. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  480. handled specially by default.
  481. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  482. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  483. handled specially by default.
  484. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  485. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  486. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  487. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  488. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  489. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  490. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  491. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  492. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  493. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  494. reciprocal.
  495. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  496. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  497. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  498. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  499. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  500. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  501. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  502. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  503. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  504. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  505. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  506. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  507. rules instead of by code-point.
  508. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  509. * Version 9.1
  510. ** Incompatible changes
  511. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  512. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  513. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  514. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  515. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  516. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  517. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  518. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  519. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  520. accordingly.
  521. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  522. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  523. is to turn, e.g.,
  524. : (file (sexp))
  525. into
  526. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  527. *** Deleted contributed packages
  528. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  529. from the contrib/ directory.
  530. You can now find them here :
  531. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  532. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  533. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  534. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  535. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  536. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  537. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  538. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  539. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  540. changes to site-map generation.
  541. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  542. to the following
  543. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  544. (lambda (entry style project)
  545. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  546. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  547. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  548. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  549. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  550. (t entry)))
  551. #+END_SRC
  552. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  553. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  554. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  555. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  556. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  557. list as their first argument.
  558. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  559. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  560. See docstring for details.
  561. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  562. See docstring for changes.
  563. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  564. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  565. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  566. details.
  567. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  568. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  569. keywords.
  570. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  571. It used to return nil.
  572. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  573. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  574. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  575. MELPA repository.
  576. ** New features
  577. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  578. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  579. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  580. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  581. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  582. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  583. specified as in "Europe/London".
  584. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  585. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  586. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  587. directory to old, ID based one.
  588. *** New Org duration library
  589. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  590. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  591. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  592. docstrings.
  593. *** Agenda
  594. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  595. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  596. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  597. See docstring for details.
  598. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  599. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  600. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  601. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  602. the default setting.
  603. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  604. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  605. directories in published site-maps.
  606. *** Babel
  607. **** Scheme: support for tables
  608. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  609. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  610. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  611. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  612. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  613. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  614. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  615. with the content to be added.
  616. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  617. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  618. before this let form.
  619. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  620. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  621. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  622. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  623. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  624. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  625. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  626. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  627. window/buffer.
  628. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  629. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  630. option in the code block's header like this:
  631. #+begin_example
  632. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  633. (dotimes [n 10]
  634. (println n ".")
  635. (Thread/sleep 500))
  636. ,#+END_SRC
  637. #+end_example
  638. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  639. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  640. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  641. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  642. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  643. =#+RESULTS= section.
  644. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  645. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  646. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  647. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  648. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  649. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  650. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  651. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  652. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  653. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  654. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  655. results in a beamer presentation.
  656. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  657. [[http://plantuml.com/][Plantuml]] source blocks now support the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/prologue.html#prologue][~:prologue~]], [[https://orgmode.org/manual/epilogue.html#epilogue][~:epilogue~]] and
  658. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  659. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  660. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  661. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  662. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  663. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  664. #+begin_example
  665. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  666. Select * From Users
  667. Where clue > 0
  668. ,#+END_SRC
  669. #+end_example
  670. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  671. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  672. against HP Vertica.
  673. More information on =vsql= can be found here: [[https://my.vertica.com/docs/7.2.x/HTML/index.htm#Authoring/ConnectingToHPVertica/vsql/UsingVsql.htm][my.vertica.com]]
  674. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  675. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  676. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  677. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  678. ,#+END_SRC
  679. #+END_EXAMPLE
  680. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  681. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  682. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  683. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  684. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  685. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  686. using ~:namespaces~:
  687. #+begin_example
  688. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  689. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  690. ,#+END_SRC
  691. #+end_example
  692. **** Support for Vala language
  693. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  694. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  695. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  696. Support for [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] does not exist yet, also there is no [[https://orgmode.org/manual/session.html#session][~:session~]]
  697. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  698. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  699. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  700. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  701. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  702. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  703. *** Export
  704. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  705. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  706. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  707. contents, are now supported.
  708. **** Add Slovenian translations
  709. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  710. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  711. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  712. details.
  713. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  714. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  715. manual for details.
  716. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  717. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  718. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  719. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  720. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  721. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  722. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  723. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  724. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  725. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  726. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  727. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  728. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  729. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  730. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  731. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  732. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  733. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  734. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  735. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  736. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  737. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  738. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  739. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  740. to the document.
  741. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  742. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  743. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  744. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  745. ~uniquify.el~.
  746. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  747. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  748. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  749. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  750. to ~org-file-contents~.
  751. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  752. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  753. that file cache.
  754. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  755. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  756. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  757. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  758. ** Removed functions
  759. *** Org Timeline
  760. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  761. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  762. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  763. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  764. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  765. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  766. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  767. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  768. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  769. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  770. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  771. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  772. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  773. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  774. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  775. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  776. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  777. ** Removed options
  778. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  779. For an equivalent to a ~nil~ value, set
  780. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  781. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to ~t~.
  782. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  783. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  784. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  785. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  786. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  787. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  788. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  789. equivalent to the removed format string.
  790. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  791. Setting it to a ~nil~ value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  792. keys).
  793. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  794. The variable is now a boolean.
  795. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  796. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  797. ** New functions
  798. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  799. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  800. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  801. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  802. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  803. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  804. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  805. ** Miscellaneous
  806. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  807. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  808. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  809. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  810. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  811. *** Allow multiple columns view
  812. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  813. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  814. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  815. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  816. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  817. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  818. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  819. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  820. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  821. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  822. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  823. used to describe the time span.
  824. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  825. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  826. far away in the future.
  827. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  828. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  829. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  830. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  831. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  832. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  833. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  834. See docstring for details.
  835. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  836. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  837. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  838. is now obsolete.
  839. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  840. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  841. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  842. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  843. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  844. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  845. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  846. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  847. suitable as a default value.
  848. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  849. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  850. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  851. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are
  852. covered by rewrite rules.
  853. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  854. * Version 9.0
  855. ** Incompatible changes
  856. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  857. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  858. above is suggested.
  859. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  860. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  861. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  862. our mailing list.
  863. *** New syntax for export blocks
  864. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  865. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  866. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  867. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  868. ...
  869. ,#+END_EXPORT
  870. #+END_SRC
  871. instead of
  872. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  873. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  874. ...
  875. ,#+END_backend
  876. #+END_SRC
  877. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  878. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  879. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  880. #+END_SRC
  881. becomes
  882. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  883. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  884. #+END_SRC
  885. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  886. using previous syntax:
  887. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  888. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  889. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  890. (interactive)
  891. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  892. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  893. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  894. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  895. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  896. t)))
  897. (org-with-wide-buffer
  898. (goto-char (point-min))
  899. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  900. (save-excursion
  901. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  902. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  903. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  904. (save-excursion
  905. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  906. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  907. (forward-char)
  908. (insert "EXPORT")
  909. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  910. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  911. (let ((include-re
  912. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  913. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  914. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  915. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  916. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  917. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  918. #+END_SRC
  919. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  920. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  921. removed.
  922. *** Footnotes
  923. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  924. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  925. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  926. constructs are now unsupported.
  927. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  928. =[fn:N]=.
  929. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  930. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  931. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  932. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  933. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  934. exists.
  935. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  936. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  937. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  938. is straightforward. For example
  939. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  940. becomes
  941. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  942. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  943. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  944. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  945. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  946. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  947. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  948. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  949. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  950. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  951. such, the following
  952. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  953. ,* Headline
  954. :PROPERTIES:
  955. :exports: code
  956. :var: a=1 b=2
  957. :var+: c=3
  958. :END:
  959. #+END_EXAMPLE
  960. should be written instead
  961. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  962. ,* Headline
  963. :PROPERTIES:
  964. :header-args: :exports code
  965. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  966. :header-args+: :var c=3
  967. :END:
  968. #+END_EXAMPLE
  969. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  970. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  971. ** New features
  972. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  973. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  974. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  975. #+begin_example
  976. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  977. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  978. #+end_example
  979. Old-style links such as
  980. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  981. continue to be supported.
  982. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  983. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  984. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  985. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  986. lists.
  987. *** New Org linter library
  988. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  989. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  990. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  991. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  992. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  993. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  994. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  995. a HTML derived export back-end.
  996. *** Export
  997. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  998. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  999. details.
  1000. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1001. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1002. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1003. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1004. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1005. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1006. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1007. for more details.
  1008. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1009. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1010. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1011. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1012. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1013. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1014. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1015. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1016. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1017. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1018. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1019. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1020. used.
  1021. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1022. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1023. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1024. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1025. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1026. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1027. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1028. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1029. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1030. (message "This is line 21")
  1031. ,#+END_SRC
  1032. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1033. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1034. (message "This is line 32")
  1035. ,#+END_SRC
  1036. #+END_SRC
  1037. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1038. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1039. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1040. export.
  1041. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1042. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1043. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1044. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1045. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1046. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1047. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1048. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1049. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1050. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1051. *** Babel
  1052. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1053. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1054. **** Support for Lua language
  1055. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1056. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1057. **** Support for Stan language
  1058. New ob-stan.el library.
  1059. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1060. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1061. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1062. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1063. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1064. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1065. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1066. that does not end in ".stan".
  1067. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1068. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1069. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1070. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1071. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1072. mandatory):
  1073. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1074. :engine oracle
  1075. :dbhost <host.com>
  1076. :dbport <1521>
  1077. :dbuser <username>
  1078. :database <database>
  1079. :dbpassword <secret>
  1080. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1081. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1082. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1083. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1084. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1085. like this:
  1086. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1087. :engine mssql
  1088. :dbhost <host.com>
  1089. :dbuser <username>
  1090. :dbpassword <secret>
  1091. :database <database>
  1092. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1093. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1094. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1095. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1096. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1097. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1098. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1099. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1100. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1101. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1102. include:
  1103. All Diagrams:
  1104. - png ::
  1105. - svg ::
  1106. - eps ::
  1107. - pdf ::
  1108. - vdx ::
  1109. - txt :: ASCII art
  1110. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1111. Class Diagrams:
  1112. - xmi ::
  1113. - html ::
  1114. State Diagrams:
  1115. - scxml ::
  1116. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1117. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1118. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1119. @startuml
  1120. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1121. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1122. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1123. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1124. @enduml
  1125. #+end_src
  1126. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1127. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1128. details and setup information.
  1129. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1130. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1131. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1132. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1133. for details.
  1134. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1135. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1136. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1137. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1138. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1139. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1140. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1141. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1142. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1143. by ISO week and not by month.
  1144. For example:
  1145. : * 2015
  1146. : ** 2015-W35
  1147. : ** 2015-W36
  1148. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1149. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1150. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1151. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1152. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1153. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1154. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1155. *** Columns view
  1156. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1157. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1158. buffer unconditionally.
  1159. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1160. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1161. **** Allow custom summaries
  1162. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1163. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1164. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1165. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1166. types.
  1167. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1168. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1169. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1170. a git repository.
  1171. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1172. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1173. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1174. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1175. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1176. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1177. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1178. first footnote.
  1179. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1180. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1181. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1182. the manual for details.
  1183. *** Links are now customizable
  1184. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1185. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1186. ** New functions
  1187. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1188. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1189. *** ~org-show-children~
  1190. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1191. ** Removed functions
  1192. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1193. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1194. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1195. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1196. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1197. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1198. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1199. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1200. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1201. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1202. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1203. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1204. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1205. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1206. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1207. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1208. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1209. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1210. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1211. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1212. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1213. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1214. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1215. The affected functions are:
  1216. - ~org-count~
  1217. - ~org-remove-if~
  1218. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1219. - ~org-reduce~
  1220. - ~org-every~
  1221. - ~org-some~
  1222. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1223. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1224. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1225. ** Removed options
  1226. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1227. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1228. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1229. let those libraries operate.
  1230. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1231. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1232. plain list.
  1233. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1234. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1235. ** Miscellaneous
  1236. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1237. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1238. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1239. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1240. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1241. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1242. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1243. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1244. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1245. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1246. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1247. Org files.
  1248. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1249. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1250. indentation.
  1251. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1252. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1253. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1254. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1255. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1256. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1257. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1258. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1259. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1260. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1261. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1262. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1263. to the article's original group.
  1264. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1265. The calling convention has changed.
  1266. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1267. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1268. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1269. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1270. called with 6 parameters.
  1271. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1272. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1273. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1274. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1275. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1276. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1277. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1278. the end of the string.
  1279. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1280. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1281. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1282. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1283. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1284. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1285. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1286. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1287. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1288. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1289. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1290. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1291. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1292. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1293. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1294. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1295. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1296. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1297. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1298. future.)
  1299. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1300. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1301. modified anyway.
  1302. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1303. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1304. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1305. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1306. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1307. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1308. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1309. indication letter was solely J.
  1310. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1311. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1312. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1313. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1314. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1315. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1316. a ~defvar~.
  1317. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1318. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1319. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1320. * Version 8.3
  1321. ** Incompatible changes
  1322. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1323. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1324. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1325. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1326. logged before the property drawer.
  1327. The following function will repair them:
  1328. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1329. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1330. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1331. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1332. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1333. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1334. (goto-char (point-min))
  1335. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1336. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1337. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1338. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1339. (org-map-entries
  1340. (lambda ()
  1341. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1342. (save-excursion
  1343. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1344. (forward-line)
  1345. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1346. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1347. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1348. (save-excursion
  1349. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1350. (eq (org-element-type
  1351. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1352. 'drawer))))
  1353. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1354. (match-beginning 0)
  1355. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1356. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1357. #+END_SRC
  1358. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1359. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1360. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1361. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1362. into account when exporting.
  1363. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1364. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1365. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1366. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1367. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1368. 5.14 (2008).
  1369. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1370. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1371. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1372. ,* Headline
  1373. :PROPERTIES:
  1374. :CATEGORY: some category
  1375. :END:
  1376. #+END_SRC
  1377. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1378. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1379. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1380. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1381. see.
  1382. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1383. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1384. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1385. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1386. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1387. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1388. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1389. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1390. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1391. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1392. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1393. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1394. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1395. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1396. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1397. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1398. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1399. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1400. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1401. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1402. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1403. *** Functions signature changes
  1404. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1405. docstring for more information.
  1406. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1407. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1408. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1409. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1410. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1411. - ~org-link-search~
  1412. ** New features
  1413. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1414. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1415. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1416. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1417. :lexical yes
  1418. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1419. :lexical no
  1420. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1421. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1422. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1423. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1424. without changing the headline.
  1425. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1426. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  1427. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1428. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1429. The following in-buffer definition:
  1430. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1431. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1432. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1433. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1434. #+END_SRC
  1435. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1436. - Group
  1437. - SubOne
  1438. - SubOne1
  1439. - SubOne2
  1440. - SubTwo
  1441. - SubTwo1
  1442. - SubTwo2
  1443. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1444. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1445. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1446. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1447. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1448. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1449. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1450. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1451. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1452. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1453. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1454. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1455. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1456. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1457. #+END_SRC
  1458. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1459. grouptags; { }.
  1460. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1461. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1462. "sub-tags".
  1463. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1464. Example use:
  1465. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1466. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1467. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1468. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1469. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1470. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1471. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1472. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1473. levels anymore.
  1474. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1475. is also used as a filter.
  1476. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1477. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1478. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1479. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1480. exclude.
  1481. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1482. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1483. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1484. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1485. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1486. New ob-processing.el library.
  1487. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1488. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1489. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1490. Check the documentation for more details.
  1491. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1492. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1493. The new behavior is the following:
  1494. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1495. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1496. buffer;
  1497. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1498. subtree;
  1499. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1500. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1501. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1502. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1503. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1504. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1505. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1506. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1507. more information.
  1508. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1509. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1510. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1511. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1512. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1513. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1514. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1515. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1516. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1517. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1518. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1519. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1520. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1521. default is =hline=.
  1522. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1523. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1524. a source block.
  1525. *** New option in ASCII export
  1526. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1527. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1528. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1529. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1530. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1531. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1532. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1533. increased. See manual for details.
  1534. *** Export inline source blocks
  1535. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1536. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1537. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  1538. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  1539. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  1540. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  1541. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  1542. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  1543. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  1544. more features. See docstring for details.
  1545. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  1546. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  1547. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  1548. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  1549. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  1550. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  1551. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1552. : This sentence is false.
  1553. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  1554. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  1555. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  1556. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  1557. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  1558. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  1559. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  1560. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  1561. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  1562. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  1563. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  1564. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  1565. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  1566. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  1567. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  1568. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  1569. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  1570. each time.
  1571. *** ASCII plot
  1572. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  1573. for details.
  1574. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  1575. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  1576. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  1577. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  1578. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  1579. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  1580. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  1581. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  1582. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  1583. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1584. See the docstring for more information.
  1585. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  1586. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  1587. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  1588. property is inherited by children.
  1589. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  1590. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  1591. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  1592. to sort a table.
  1593. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  1594. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  1595. for details.
  1596. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  1597. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  1598. countdown timers.
  1599. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  1600. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  1601. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  1602. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  1603. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  1604. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  1605. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  1606. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  1607. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  1608. manual for details.
  1609. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  1610. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  1611. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  1612. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  1613. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  1614. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  1615. leading spaces within table cells.
  1616. *** New MathJax configuration options
  1617. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  1618. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  1619. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  1620. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  1621. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  1622. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  1623. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  1624. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  1625. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  1626. keywords and properties.
  1627. *** Viewport support in html export
  1628. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  1629. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  1630. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  1631. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  1632. for details.
  1633. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  1634. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  1635. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  1636. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  1637. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  1638. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  1639. added to headline text.
  1640. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  1641. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  1642. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  1643. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  1644. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  1645. =#+TOC= keyword.
  1646. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  1647. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  1648. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  1649. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  1650. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  1651. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  1652. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  1653. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  1654. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  1655. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  1656. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  1657. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  1658. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  1659. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  1660. ** Removed functions
  1661. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  1662. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  1663. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  1664. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  1665. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  1666. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  1667. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  1668. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  1669. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  1670. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  1671. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  1672. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  1673. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  1674. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  1675. optional argument.
  1676. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  1677. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  1678. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  1679. ** Removed options
  1680. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  1681. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  1682. compatibility.
  1683. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  1684. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  1685. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  1686. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  1687. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  1688. document instead.
  1689. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  1690. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  1691. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  1692. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  1693. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  1694. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  1695. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  1696. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  1697. variable locally.
  1698. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  1699. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  1700. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  1701. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  1702. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  1703. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  1704. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  1705. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  1706. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  1707. removed.
  1708. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  1709. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  1710. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  1711. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  1712. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  1713. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  1714. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  1715. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  1716. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  1717. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  1718. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  1719. *** Removed comment-related filters
  1720. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  1721. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  1722. anymore.
  1723. ** Miscellaneous
  1724. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  1725. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  1726. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  1727. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  1728. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  1729. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  1730. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  1731. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  1732. labels colliding.
  1733. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  1734. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  1735. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  1736. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  1737. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  1738. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  1739. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  1740. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  1741. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  1742. particular test failure was introduced.
  1743. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  1744. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  1745. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  1746. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  1747. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  1748. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  1749. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  1750. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  1751. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1752. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  1753. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  1754. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  1755. This helps spotting wrong links.
  1756. * Version 8.2
  1757. ** Incompatible changes
  1758. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  1759. This may require two changes in user config.
  1760. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  1761. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  1762. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  1763. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  1764. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  1765. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  1766. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  1767. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  1768. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  1769. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  1770. with this:
  1771. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  1772. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  1773. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  1774. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  1775. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  1776. So you need to replace
  1777. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  1778. by
  1779. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  1780. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  1781. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  1782. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  1783. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  1784. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  1785. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  1786. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  1787. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  1788. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  1789. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  1790. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  1791. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  1792. of a symbol.
  1793. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  1794. ** Important bugfixes
  1795. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  1796. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  1797. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  1798. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  1799. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  1800. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  1801. ** New features
  1802. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  1803. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  1804. of the list.
  1805. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  1806. - Support SVG images
  1807. - Support for .pgf files
  1808. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  1809. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  1810. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  1811. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  1812. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  1813. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  1814. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  1815. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  1816. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  1817. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  1818. in a paragraph-like way.
  1819. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1820. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  1821. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  1822. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  1823. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  1824. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  1825. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  1826. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  1827. which can then be passed to export functions like
  1828. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  1829. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  1830. registering a new back-end.
  1831. *** New agenda fortnight view
  1832. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  1833. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  1834. ** New options
  1835. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  1836. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  1837. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  1838. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  1839. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  1840. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  1841. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  1842. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  1843. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  1844. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  1845. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  1846. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1847. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1848. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1849. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1850. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1851. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1852. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1853. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1854. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1855. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1856. If you set this to the following
  1857. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1858. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1859. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1860. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1861. =C-o= in tables.
  1862. ** New contributed packages
  1863. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  1864. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  1865. software.
  1866. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  1867. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  1868. ** Miscellaneous
  1869. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  1870. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  1871. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  1872. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  1873. the same with example blocks.
  1874. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  1875. release.
  1876. * Version 8.0.1
  1877. ** Installation
  1878. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  1879. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  1880. instructions:
  1881. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  1882. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  1883. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  1884. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  1885. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  1886. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  1887. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  1888. detailed explanations.
  1889. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  1890. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  1891. function has been called already.
  1892. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  1893. installation.
  1894. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  1895. ** Incompatible changes
  1896. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  1897. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  1898. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  1899. you will have to update them.
  1900. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  1901. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  1902. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  1903. **** New export engine
  1904. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  1905. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  1906. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  1907. /all/ export back-ends.
  1908. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  1909. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  1910. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  1911. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  1912. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  1913. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  1914. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  1915. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  1916. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  1917. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  1918. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  1919. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  1920. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  1921. should now be written
  1922. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  1923. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  1924. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  1925. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  1926. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  1927. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  1928. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  1929. now fully removed.
  1930. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  1931. remember templates into capture templates.
  1932. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  1933. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  1934. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  1935. **** Note for third-party developers
  1936. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  1937. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  1938. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  1939. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  1940. code.
  1941. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  1942. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  1943. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  1944. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  1945. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  1946. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  1947. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  1948. user-base.
  1949. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  1950. - org-mac-message.el
  1951. - org-mew.el
  1952. - org-wl.el
  1953. - ox-freedmind.el
  1954. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  1955. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  1956. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  1957. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  1958. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  1959. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  1960. ** New packages in core
  1961. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  1962. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  1963. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1964. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  1965. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  1966. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  1967. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  1968. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  1969. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  1970. ** New packages in contrib
  1971. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  1972. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  1973. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  1974. code.
  1975. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1976. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  1977. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  1978. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  1979. entries.
  1980. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  1981. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  1982. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  1983. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  1984. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  1985. for starting headlines.
  1986. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  1987. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  1988. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  1989. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  1990. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  1991. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  1992. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  1993. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  1994. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  1995. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1996. using =deck.js=.
  1997. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  1998. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  1999. using =s5=.
  2000. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2001. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2002. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2003. output.
  2004. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2005. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2006. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2007. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2008. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2009. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2010. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2011. entirely with Org.
  2012. ** New features
  2013. *** Export
  2014. **** New export generic options
  2015. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2016. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2017. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2018. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2019. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2020. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2021. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2022. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2023. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2024. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2025. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2026. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2027. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2028. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2029. contains time-stamps.
  2030. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2031. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2032. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2033. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2034. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2035. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2036. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2037. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2038. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2039. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2040. *** Structure editing
  2041. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2042. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2043. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2044. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2045. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2046. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2047. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2048. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2049. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2050. region.
  2051. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2052. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2053. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2054. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2055. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2056. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2057. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2058. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2059. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2060. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2061. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2062. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2063. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2064. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2065. forward and backward.
  2066. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2067. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2068. Now Org will sort this list
  2069. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2070. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2071. like this:
  2072. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2073. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2074. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2075. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2076. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2077. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2078. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2079. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2080. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2081. local variable.
  2082. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2083. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2084. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2085. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2086. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2087. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2088. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2089. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2090. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2091. option to =nil=.
  2092. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2093. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2094. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2095. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2096. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2097. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2098. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2099. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2100. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2101. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2102. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2103. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2104. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2105. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2106. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2107. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2108. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2109. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2110. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2111. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2112. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2113. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2114. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2115. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2116. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2117. control this globally or per agenda.
  2118. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2119. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2120. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2121. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2122. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2123. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2124. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2125. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2126. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2127. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2128. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2129. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2130. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2131. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2132. (kbd "@")
  2133. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2134. #+END_SRC
  2135. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2136. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2137. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2138. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2139. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2140. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2141. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2142. only show their description, not the full links.
  2143. *** Agenda
  2144. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2145. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2146. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2147. want to build a list of appointments.
  2148. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2149. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2150. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2151. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2152. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2153. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2154. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2155. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2156. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2157. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2158. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2159. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2160. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2161. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2162. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2163. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2164. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2165. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2166. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2167. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2168. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2169. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2170. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2171. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2172. These new options are available:
  2173. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2174. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2175. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2176. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2177. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2178. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2179. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2180. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2181. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2182. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2183. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2184. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2185. non-tagged headlines.
  2186. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2187. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2188. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2189. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2190. that take only =N= minutes.
  2191. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2192. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2193. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2194. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2195. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2196. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2197. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2198. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2199. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2200. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2201. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2202. list of notes.
  2203. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2204. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2205. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2206. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2207. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2208. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2209. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2210. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2211. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2212. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2213. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2214. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2215. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2216. outline tree.
  2217. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2218. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2219. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2220. asks for a confirmation.
  2221. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2222. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2223. the mark of the entry at point.
  2224. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2225. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2226. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2227. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2228. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2229. level 1.
  2230. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2231. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2232. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2233. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2234. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2235. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2236. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2237. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2238. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2239. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2240. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2241. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2242. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2243. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2244. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2245. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2246. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2247. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2248. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2249. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2250. Read the full docstring for details.
  2251. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2252. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2253. : * Task
  2254. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2255. *** Capture
  2256. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2257. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2258. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2259. capture template.
  2260. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2261. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2262. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2263. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2264. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2265. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2266. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2267. check against the name of the buffer.
  2268. *** Tag groups
  2269. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2270. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2271. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2272. of those tags.)
  2273. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2274. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2275. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2276. *** Links
  2277. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2278. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2279. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2280. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2281. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2282. as if the protocol was not known.
  2283. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2284. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2285. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2286. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2287. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2288. active.
  2289. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2290. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2291. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2292. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2293. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2294. When storing a link to a headline like
  2295. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2296. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2297. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2298. there is no description.
  2299. *** Table
  2300. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2301. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2302. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2303. those other formulas.
  2304. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2305. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2306. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2307. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2308. the end.
  2309. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2310. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2311. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2312. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2313. doing computation.
  2314. **** New lookup functions
  2315. There are now three lookup functions:
  2316. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2317. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2318. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2319. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2320. *** Startup keywords
  2321. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2322. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2323. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2324. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2325. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2326. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2327. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2328. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  2329. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2330. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  2331. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2332. *** Clocking
  2333. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2334. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2335. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2336. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2337. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2338. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2339. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2340. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2341. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2342. the clocktable.
  2343. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2344. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2345. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2346. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2347. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2348. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2349. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2350. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2351. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2352. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2353. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2354. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2355. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2356. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2357. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2358. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2359. *** Babel
  2360. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2361. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2362. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2363. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2364. same target than the block at point.
  2365. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2366. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2367. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2368. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2369. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2370. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2371. time.
  2372. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2373. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2374. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2375. manual for a usage example.
  2376. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2377. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2378. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2379. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2380. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2381. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2382. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2383. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2384. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2385. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2386. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2387. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2388. *** Faces
  2389. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2390. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2391. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2392. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2393. ** Miscellaneous
  2394. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2395. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2396. - [[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]]
  2397. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2398. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2399. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2400. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2401. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2402. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2403. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2404. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2405. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2406. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2407. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2408. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2409. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2410. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2411. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2412. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2413. ** Outside Org
  2414. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2415. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2416. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2417. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2418. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2419. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2420. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2421. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2422. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2423. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2424. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2425. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2426. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2427. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2428. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2429. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2430. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2431. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2432. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2433. * Version 7.9.3
  2434. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2435. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2436. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2437. agenda views.)
  2438. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2439. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2440. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2441. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2442. agenda type to this variable.
  2443. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2444. generation.
  2445. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2446. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2447. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2448. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2449. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2450. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2451. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2452. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2453. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2454. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2455. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2456. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2457. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2458. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2459. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2460. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2461. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2462. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2463. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2464. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2465. in most environments.
  2466. * Version 7.9.2
  2467. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2468. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2469. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2470. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2471. #+END_SRC
  2472. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2473. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2474. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2475. directory.)
  2476. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2477. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2478. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |

  2493. ** New package and Babel language
  2494. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2495. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2496. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2497. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2498. ** Incompatible changes
  2499. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2500. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2501. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2502. instead.
  2503. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2504. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2505. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2506. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2507. *** Org Element
  2508. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2509. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2510. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2511. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2512. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2513. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2514. See the docstrings for more details.
  2515. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2516. on =org-element.el=.
  2517. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2518. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2519. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2520. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2521. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2522. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2523. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2524. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2525. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2526. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2527. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2528. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2529. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2530. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2531. elements.
  2532. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2533. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2534. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2535. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2536. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2537. item. Etc.
  2538. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2539. the whole list.
  2540. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2541. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2542. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2543. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2544. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2545. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2546. the same level.
  2547. *** Org Agenda
  2548. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2549. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2550. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2551. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2552. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2553. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2554. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2555. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2556. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2557. generating new ones.
  2558. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2559. agenda buffer.
  2560. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2561. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2562. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2563. to this value
  2564. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2565. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2566. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2567. #+END_SRC
  2568. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2569. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2570. details on how to use this.
  2571. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2572. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2573. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2574. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2575. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2576. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2577. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2578. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2579. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2580. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2581. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2582. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2583. =t=.
  2584. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2585. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2586. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2587. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2588. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2589. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2590. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2591. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2592. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2593. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2594. =f= or =w=).
  2595. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2596. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2597. of deadline.
  2598. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2599. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2600. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2601. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2602. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2603. several times.
  2604. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2605. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2606. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2607. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2608. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2609. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2610. filters and category filters.
  2611. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2612. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2613. configuration.
  2614. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2615. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2616. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2617. point.
  2618. *** Org Links
  2619. **** Inserting links
  2620. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2621. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2622. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2623. want to insert.
  2624. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2625. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2626. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2627. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2628. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2629. highlighted.
  2630. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2631. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2632. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2633. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2634. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2635. **** New link type =help=
  2636. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2637. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2638. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2639. you go back to the same buffer.
  2640. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2641. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2642. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2643. =org-stored-links=.
  2644. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2645. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2646. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2647. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2648. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2649. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2650. *** Org Editing
  2651. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2652. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2653. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2654. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2655. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2656. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2657. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2658. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2659. all headlines in the region.
  2660. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2661. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2662. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2663. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2664. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2665. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2666. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2667. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2668. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2669. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2670. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2671. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2672. undo RET=.
  2673. *** Org Clock
  2674. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2675. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2676. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2677. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2678. clocked entry, if any.
  2679. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2680. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2681. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2682. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2683. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2684. out.
  2685. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2686. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2687. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2688. arguments).
  2689. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2690. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2691. in.
  2692. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2693. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2694. cells in clockreport.
  2695. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2696. time cells in clockreport.
  2697. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2698. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2699. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2700. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2701. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2702. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2703. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2704. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2705. space in the frame title.
  2706. *** Org Appearance
  2707. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2708. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2709. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2710. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2711. don't want to see temporarily.
  2712. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2713. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2714. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2715. There are these new entities:
  2716. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2717. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2718. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2719. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2720. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2721. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2722. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2723. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2724. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2725. The face is back to a normal height.
  2726. *** Org Columns
  2727. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2728. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2729. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2730. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2731. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2732. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2733. block will use its value as the column format.
  2734. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2735. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2736. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2737. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2738. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2739. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2740. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2741. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2742. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2743. You can now use
  2744. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2745. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2746. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2747. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2748. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2749. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2750. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2751. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2752. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2753. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2754. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2755. *** Org Capture
  2756. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2757. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2758. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2759. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2760. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2761. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2762. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2763. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2764. set to this value
  2765. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2766. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2767. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2768. #+END_SRC
  2769. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2770. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2771. more details on how to use this.
  2772. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2773. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2774. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2775. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2776. =nil=.
  2777. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2778. See the manual for more explanations.
  2779. **** More control over empty lines
  2780. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2781. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2782. explanations.
  2783. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2784. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2785. *** Org Export
  2786. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2787. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2788. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2789. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2790. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2791. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2792. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2793. the table.
  2794. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2795. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2796. in the #+DATE option.
  2797. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2798. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2799. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2800. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2801. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2802. More languages are always welcome.
  2803. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2804. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2805. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2806. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2807. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2808. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2809. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2810. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2811. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2812. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2813. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2814. *** Org Babel
  2815. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2816. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2817. supported.
  2818. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2819. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2820. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2821. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2822. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2823. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2824. *** Miscellaneous
  2825. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2826. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2827. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2828. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2829. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2830. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2831. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2832. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2833. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2834. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2835. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2836. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2837. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2838. alarm.
  2839. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2840. This will increment the effort value.
  2841. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2842. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2843. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2844. attach symbolic links.
  2845. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2846. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2847. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2848. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2849. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2850. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2851. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2852. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2853. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2854. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2855. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2856. all top level list items.
  2857. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2858. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2859. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2860. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2861. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2862. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2863. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2864. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2865. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2866. first headline in the region.
  2867. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2868. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2869. agenda.
  2870. ** Important bug fixes
  2871. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2872. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2873. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2874. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2875. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2876. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2877. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2878. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2879. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2880. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2881. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2882. license.
  2883. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2884. the code and the license to your needs.
  2885. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2886. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2887. * Version 7.8.11
  2888. ** Incompatible changes
  2889. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  2890. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  2891. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  2892. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  2893. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  2894. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  2895. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  2896. last-minute save.
  2897. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  2898. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  2899. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  2900. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  2901. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  2902. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  2903. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  2904. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  2905. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  2906. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  2907. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  2908. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  2909. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  2910. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  2911. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  2912. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  2913. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  2914. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  2915. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  2916. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  2917. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  2918. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  2919. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  2920. #+end_src
  2921. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  2922. setup./
  2923. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  2924. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  2925. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  2926. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  2927. The two new variables are:
  2928. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  2929. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  2930. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  2931. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  2932. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  2933. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  2934. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  2935. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  2936. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  2937. classes.
  2938. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  2939. document are:
  2940. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  2941. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  2942. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  2943. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  2944. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  2945. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  2946. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  2947. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  2948. #+begin_example
  2949. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  2950. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  2951. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  2952. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  2953. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  2954. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  2955. #+end_example
  2956. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  2957. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  2958. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  2959. applies to the following packages:
  2960. - inputenc
  2961. - fontenc
  2962. - fixltx2e
  2963. - graphicx
  2964. - longtable
  2965. - float
  2966. - wrapfig
  2967. - soul
  2968. - t1enc
  2969. - textcomp
  2970. - marvosym
  2971. - wasysym
  2972. - latexsym
  2973. - amssymb
  2974. - hyperref
  2975. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  2976. you are using, you can remove it from
  2977. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  2978. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  2979. properly.
  2980. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  2981. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  2982. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  2983. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  2984. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  2985. the header.
  2986. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  2987. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  2988. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  2989. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  2990. code using it.
  2991. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  2992. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  2993. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  2994. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  2995. ** Important new features
  2996. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  2997. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  2998. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  2999. for more information on how to customize it.
  3000. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3001. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3002. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3003. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3004. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3005. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3006. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3007. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3008. To switch over to the new system:
  3009. 1. Run
  3010. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3011. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3012. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3013. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3014. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3015. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3016. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3017. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3018. customization.
  3019. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3020. with org-remember:
  3021. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3022. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3023. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3024. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3025. with using both system in parallel.
  3026. ** New libraries
  3027. *** New Org libraries
  3028. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3029. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3030. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3031. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3032. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3033. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3034. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3035. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3036. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3037. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3038. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3039. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3040. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3041. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3042. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3043. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3044. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3045. anything.
  3046. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3047. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3048. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3049. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3050. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3051. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3052. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3053. /org-ctags.el/.
  3054. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3055. call function to do something special with text links.
  3056. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3057. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3058. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3059. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3060. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3061. Org-mode manual:
  3062. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3063. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3064. *** New Babel libraries
  3065. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3066. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3067. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3068. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3069. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3070. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3071. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3072. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3073. *** Hyperlinks
  3074. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3075. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3076. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3077. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3078. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3079. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3080. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3081. The key new functions are
  3082. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3083. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3084. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3085. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3086. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3087. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3088. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3089. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3090. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3091. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3092. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3093. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3094. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3095. **** Modified link escaping
  3096. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  3097. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3098. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3099. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3100. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3101. : link).
  3102. :
  3103. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3104. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3105. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3106. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3107. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3108. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3109. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3110. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3111. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3112. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3113. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3114. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3115. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3116. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3117. string to be executed.
  3118. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3119. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3120. to org-file-apps:
  3121. #+begin_example
  3122. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3123. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3124. #+end_example
  3125. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3126. *** Dates and time
  3127. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3128. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3129. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3130. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3131. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3132. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3133. will work on the current entry.
  3134. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3135. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3136. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3137. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3138. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3139. #+begin_example
  3140. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3141. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3142. #+end_example
  3143. *** Agenda
  3144. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3145. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3146. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3147. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3148. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3149. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3150. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3151. entries using a function.
  3152. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3153. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3154. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3155. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3156. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3157. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3158. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3159. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3160. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3161. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3162. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3163. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3164. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3165. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3166. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3167. *** Exporting
  3168. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3169. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3170. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3171. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3172. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3173. %-sequences.
  3174. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3175. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3176. formatting string will insert a string.
  3177. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3178. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3179. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3180. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3181. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3182. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3183. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3184. C-e u=, respectively.
  3185. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3186. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3187. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3188. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3189. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3190. your preference.
  3191. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3192. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3193. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3194. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3195. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3196. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3197. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3198. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3199. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3200. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3201. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3202. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3203. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3204. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3205. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3206. individual could.
  3207. *** Refiling
  3208. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3209. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3210. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3211. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3212. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3213. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3214. **** New logging support for refiling
  3215. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3216. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3217. =org-log-refile=.
  3218. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3219. *** Completion
  3220. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3221. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3222. *** Tables
  3223. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3224. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3225. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3226. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3227. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3228. the displayed in the buffer.
  3229. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3230. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3231. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3232. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3233. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3234. |--------+--------+---------|
  3235. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3236. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3237. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3238. optional.
  3239. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3240. feedback on this.
  3241. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3242. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3243. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3244. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3245. : things like
  3246. :
  3247. : @3=
  3248. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3249. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3250. :
  3251. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3252. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3253. : table.
  3254. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3255. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3256. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3257. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3258. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3259. *** Lists
  3260. **** Improved handling of lists
  3261. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3262. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3263. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3264. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3265. indented than it.
  3266. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3267. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3268. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3269. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3270. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3271. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3272. `org-list-export-context'.
  3273. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3274. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3275. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3276. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3277. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3278. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3279. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3280. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3281. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3282. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3283. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3284. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3285. *** Inline display of linked images
  3286. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3287. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3288. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3289. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3290. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3291. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3292. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3293. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3294. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3295. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3296. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3297. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3298. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3299. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3300. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3301. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3302. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3303. tangling
  3304. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3305. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3306. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3307. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3308. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3309. properties or in tables.
  3310. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3311. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3312. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3313. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3314. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3315. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3316. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3317. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3318. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3319. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3320. request by Scott Otterson.
  3321. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3322. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3323. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3324. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3325. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3326. superscripts, see the variable
  3327. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3328. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3329. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3330. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3331. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3332. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3333. following new faces:
  3334. =org-document-title=
  3335. =org-document-info=
  3336. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3337. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3338. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3339. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3340. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3341. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3342. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3343. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3344. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3345. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3346. property is affected by this setting.
  3347. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3348. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3349. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3350. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3351. **** Better level cycling function
  3352. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3353. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3354. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3355. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3356. **** Adaptive filling
  3357. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3358. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3359. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3360. comments to be filled correctly.
  3361. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3362. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3363. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3364. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3365. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3366. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3367. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3368. *** Clocking
  3369. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3370. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3371. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3372. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3373. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3374. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3375. **** Localized clock tables
  3376. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3377. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3378. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3379. available translated strings.
  3380. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3381. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3382. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3383. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3384. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3385. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3386. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3387. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3388. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3389. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3390. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3391. =nil=.
  3392. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3393. *** Misc
  3394. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3395. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3396. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3397. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3398. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3399. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3400. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3401. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3402. property) back.
  3403. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3404. change.
  3405. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3406. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3407. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3408. #+begin_example
  3409. org-table-get
  3410. org-table-put
  3411. org-table-current-line
  3412. org-table-goto-line
  3413. #+end_example
  3414. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3415. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3416. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3417. node.
  3418. This was requested by Tom.
  3419. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3420. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3421. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3422. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
