  19. Earlier, IDs generated using =ts= method had a hard-coded format (i.e. =20200923T160237.891616=).
  20. The new option allows user to customise the format.
  21. Defaults are unchanged.
  22. *** New argument for ~file-desc~ babel header
  23. It is now possible to provide the =file-desc= header argument for a
  24. babel source block but omit the description by passing an empty vector
  25. as an argument (i.e., :file-desc []). This can be useful because
  26. providing =file-desc= without an argument results in the result of
  27. =file= being used in the description. Previously, the only way to
  28. omit a file description was to omit the header argument entirely,
  29. which made it difficult/impossible to provide a default value for
  30. =file-desc=.
  31. *** New option to set ~org-link-file-path-type~ to a function
  32. ~org-link-file-path-type~ can now be set to a function that takes the
  33. full filename as an argument and returns the path to link to.
  34. For example, if you use ~project.el~, you can set this function to use
  35. relative links within a project as follows:
  36. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  37. (setq (org-link-file-path-type
  38. (lambda (path)
  39. (let* ((proj (project-current))
  40. (root (if proj (project-root proj) default-directory)))
  41. (if (string-prefix-p (expand-file-name root) path)
  42. (file-relative-name path)
  43. (abbreviate-file-name path))))))
  44. #+end_src
  45. *** New options and new behavior for babel LaTeX SVG image files
  46. Org babel now uses a two-stage process for converting latex source
  47. blocks to SVG image files (when the extension of the output file is
  48. ~.svg~). The first stage in the process converts the latex block into
  49. a PDF file, which is then converted into an SVG file in the second
  50. stage. The TeX->PDF part uses the existing infrastructure for
  51. ~org-babel-latex-tex-to-pdf~. The PDF->SVG part uses a command
  52. specified in a new customization,
  53. ~org-babel-latex-pdf-svg-process~. By default, this uses inkscape for
  54. conversion, but since it is fully customizable, any other command can
  55. be used in its place. For instance, dvisvgm might be used here. This
  56. two-part processing replaces the previous use of htlatex to process
  57. LaTeX directly to SVG (htlatex is still used for HTML conversion).
  58. Conversion to SVG exposes a number of additional customizations that
  59. give the user full control over the contents of the latex source
  60. block. ~org-babel-latex-preamble~, ~org-babel-latex-begin-env~ and
  61. ~org-babel-latex-end-env~ are new customization options added to allow
  62. the user to specify the preamble and code that preceedes and proceeds
  63. the contents of the source block.
  64. *** New option ~org-html-meta-tags~ allows for HTML meta tags customization
  65. New variable ~org-html-meta-tags~ makes it possible to customize the
  66. =<meta>= tags used in an HTML export. Accepts either a static list of
  67. values, or a function that generates such a list (see
  68. ~org-html-meta-tags-default~ as an example of the latter).
  69. *** Option ~org-agenda-bulk-custom-functions~ now supports collecting bulk arguments
  70. When specifying a custom agenda bulk option, you can now also specify
  71. a function which collects the arguments to be used with each call to
  72. the custom function.
  73. *** New option ~org-clock-ask-before-exiting~
  74. By default, a function is now added to ~kill-emacs-query-functions~
  75. that asks whether to clock out and save when there's a running clock.
  76. Customize ~org-clock-ask-before-exiting~~ to nil to disable this new
  77. behavior.
  78. ** New features
  79. *** =ob-python= improvements to =:return= header argument
  80. The =:return= header argument in =ob-python= now works for session
  81. blocks as well as non-session blocks. Also, it now works with the
  82. =:epilogue= header argument -- previously, setting the =:return=
  83. header would cause the =:epilogue= to be ignored.
  84. This change allows more easily moving boilerplate out of the main code
  85. block and into the header. For example, for plotting, we need to add
  86. boilerplate to save the figure to a file and return the
  87. filename. Instead of doing this within the code block, we can now
  88. handle it through the header arguments as follows:
  89. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  90. ,#+header: :var fname="/home/jack/tmp/plot.svg"
  91. ,#+header: :epilogue plt.savefig(fname)
  92. ,#+header: :return fname
  93. ,#+begin_src python :results value file
  94. import matplotlib, numpy
  95. import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  96. fig=plt.figure(figsize=(4,2))
  97. x=numpy.linspace(-15,15)
  98. plt.plot(numpy.sin(x)/x)
  99. fig.tight_layout()
  100. ,#+end_src
  101. ,#+RESULTS:
  102. [[file:/home/jack/tmp/plot.svg]]
  103. #+END_SRC
  104. As another example, we can use =:return= with the external [[https://pypi.org/project/tabulate/][tabulate]]
  105. package, to convert pandas Dataframes into orgmode tables:
  106. #+begin_src org
  107. ,#+header: :prologue from tabulate import tabulate
  108. ,#+header: :return tabulate(table, headers=table.columns, tablefmt="orgtbl")
  109. ,#+begin_src python :results value raw :session
  110. import pandas as pd
  111. table = pd.DataFrame({
  112. "a": [1,2,3],
  113. "b": [4,5,6]
  114. })
  115. ,#+end_src
  116. ,#+RESULTS:
  117. | | a | b |
  118. |---+---+---|
  119. | 0 | 1 | 4 |
  120. | 1 | 2 | 5 |
  121. | 2 | 3 | 6 |
  122. #+end_src
  123. *** New startup options =#+startup: show<n>levels=
  124. These startup options complement the existing =overview=, =content=,
  125. =showall=, =showeverything= with a way to start the document with n
  126. levels shown, where n goes from 2 to 5.
  127. Example:
  128. : #+startup: show3levels
  129. *** New =u= table formula flag to enable Calc units simplification mode
  130. A new =u= mode flag for Calc formulas in Org tables has been added to
  131. enable Calc units simplification mode.
  132. *** =org-set-tags-command= select tags from ~org-global-tags-completion-table~
  133. Let ~org-set-tags-command~ TAB fast tag completion interface complete
  134. tags including from both buffer local and user defined persistent
  135. global list (~org-tag-alist~ and ~org-tag-persistent-alist~). Now
  136. option ~org-complete-tags-always-offer-all-agenda-tags~ is honored.
  137. ** Miscellaneous
  138. *** =org-goto-first-child= now works before first heading
  139. When point is before first heading =org-goto-first-child= will move
  140. point to the first child heading, or return nil if no heading exist
  141. in buffer. This is in line with the fact that everything before first
  142. heading is regarded as outline level 0, i.e. the parent level of all
  143. headings in the buffer.
  144. Previously =org-goto-first-child= would do nothing before first
  145. heading, except return nil.
  146. *** Faces of all the heading text elements now conform to the headline face
  147. In the past, faces of todo keywords, emphasised text, tags, and
  148. priority cookies inherited =default= face. The resulting headline
  149. fontification was not always consistent, as discussed in [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2020-09/msg00331.html][this bug
  150. report]]. Now, the relevant faces adapt to face used to fontify the
  151. current headline level.
  152. Users who prefer to keep the old behaviour should change their face
  153. customisation explicitly stating that =default= face is inherited.
  154. Example of old face customisation:
  155. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  156. (setq org-todo-keyword-faces '(("TODO"
  157. :background "chocolate"
  158. :height 0.75)))
  159. #+end_src
  160. To preserve the old behaviour the above customisation should be
  161. changed to
  162. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  163. (setq org-todo-keyword-faces '(("TODO"
  164. :inherit default
  165. :background "chocolate"
  166. :height 0.75)))
  167. #+end_src
  168. *** Storing ID-links before first heading uses title as description
  169. Storing links to files using ~org-store-link~ (=<C-c l>=) when
  170. ~org-id-link-to-org-use-id~ is not nil will now store the title as
  171. description of the link, if available. If no title exists it falls
  172. back to the filename as before.
  173. * Version 9.4
  174. ** Incompatible changes
  175. *** Possibly broken internal file links: please check and fix
  176. A bug has been affecting internal links to headlines, like
  177. : [[*Headline][A link to a headline]]
  178. Storing a link to a headline may have been broken in your setup and
  179. those links may appear as
  180. : [[*TODO Headline][A link to a headline]]
  181. Following the link above will result in an error: the TODO keyword
  182. should not be part of internal file links.
  183. You can use the following command to fix links in an Org buffer:
  184. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  185. (defun org-fix-links ()
  186. "Fix ill-formatted internal links.
  187. E.g. replace [[*TODO Headline][headline]] by [[*Headline][headline]].
  188. Go through the buffer and ask for the replacement."
  189. (interactive)
  190. (visible-mode 1)
  191. (save-excursion
  192. (goto-char (point-min))
  193. (let ((regexp (format "\\[\\[\\*%s\\s-+"
  194. (regexp-opt org-todo-keywords-1 t))))
  195. (while (re-search-forward regexp nil t)
  196. (when (and (save-excursion
  197. (goto-char (match-beginning 0))
  198. (looking-at-p org-link-bracket-re))
  199. (y-or-n-p "Fix link (remove TODO keyword)? "))
  200. (replace-match "[[*")))))
  201. (visible-mode -1))
  202. #+end_src
  203. *** Calling conventions changes when opening or exporting custom links
  204. This changes affects export back-ends, and libraries providing new
  205. link types.
  206. Function used in ~:follow~ link parameter is required to accept a
  207. second argument. Likewise, function used in ~:export~ parameter needs
  208. to accept a fourth argument. See ~org-link-set-parameters~ for
  209. details.
  210. Eventually, the function ~org-export-custom-protocol-maybe~ is now
  211. called with a fourth argument. Even though the 3-arguments definition
  212. is still supported, at least for now, we encourage back-end developers
  213. to switch to the new signature.
  214. *** Python session return values must be top-level expression statements
  215. Python blocks with ~:session :results value~ header arguments now only
  216. return a value if the last line is a top-level expression statement.
  217. Also, when a None value is returned, "None" will be printed under
  218. "#+RESULTS:", as it already did with ~:results value~ for non-session
  219. blocks.
  220. *** In HTML export, change on how outline-container-* is set
  221. When the headline has a =CUSTOM_ID=, use this custom id to build the
  222. div id. For example, if you have =:CUSTOM_ID: my-headline= then the
  223. resulting <div> will be ~<div id="outline-container-my-headline">~.
  224. You may want to check whether your HTML files are rendered differently
  225. after this change.
  226. *** New keybinding =<C-c C-TAB>= for ~org-force-cycle-archived~
  227. ~org-force-cycle-archived~ used to be associated with =<C-TAB>= but
  228. this keybinding is used in Emacs for navigating tabs in Emacs. The
  229. new keybinding is =<C-c C-TAB>=.
  230. ** New default settings for some options
  231. These options now default to =t=:
  232. - ~org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~
  233. - ~org-fontify-done-headline~
  234. - ~org-src-tab-acts-natively~
  235. You may want to read the docstrings of these options to understand the
  236. consequences of this change.
  237. Also, ~org-startup-folded~ now defaults to ~showeverything~.
  238. ** New features
  239. *** Looping agenda commands over headlines
  240. ~org-agenda-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~ allows you to loop
  241. agenda commands over the active region.
  242. When set to =t= (the default), loop over all headlines. When set to
  243. ='start-level=, loop over headlines with the same level as the first
  244. headline in the region. When set to a string, loop over lines
  245. matching this regular expression.
  246. *** New minor mode ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  247. Turn on the display of the first data row of the table at point in the
  248. window header line when this first row is not visible anymore in the
  249. buffer.
  250. You can activate this minor mode by default by setting the option
  251. ~org-table-header-line-p~ to =t=. You can also change the face for
  252. the header line by customizing the ~org-table-header~ face.
  253. *** New minor mode ~org-list-checkbox-radio-mode~
  254. When this minor mode is on, checkboxes behave as radio buttons: if a
  255. checkbox is turned on, other checkboxes at the same level are turned
  256. off.
  257. If you want to occasionally toggle a checkbox as a radio button
  258. without turning this minor mode on, you can use =<C-c C-x C-r>= to
  259. call ~org-toggle-radio-button~.
  260. You can also add =#+ATTR_ORG: :radio t= right before the list to tell
  261. Org to use radio buttons for this list only.
  262. *** New allowed value for ~org-adapt-indentation~
  263. ~org-adapt-indentation~ now accepts a new value, ='headline-data=.
  264. When set to this value, Org will only adapt indentation of headline
  265. data lines, such as planning/clock lines and property/logbook drawers.
  266. Also, with this setting, =org-indent-mode= will keep these data lines
  267. correctly aligned with the headline above.
  268. *** Numeric priorities are now allowed (up to 65)
  269. You can now set ~org-priority-highest/lowest/default~ to integers to
  270. use numeric priorities globally or set, for example
  271. #+PRIORITIES: 1 10 5
  272. to define a buffer-local range and default for priorities. Priority
  273. commands should work as usual. You cannot use numbers superior to 64
  274. for numeric priorities, as it would clash with priorities like [#A]
  275. where the "A" is internally converted to its numeric value of 65.
  276. *** Property drawers allowed before first headline
  277. Property drawers are now allowed before the first headline.
  278. Org mode is moving more towards making things before the first
  279. headline behave just as if it was at outline level 0. Inheritance for
  280. properties will work also for this level. In other words: defining
  281. things in a property drawer before the first headline will make them
  282. "inheritable" for all headlines.
  283. *** Refinement in window behavior on exiting Org source buffer
  284. After editing a source block, Org will restore the window layout when
  285. ~org-src-window-setup~ is set to a value that modifies the layout.
  286. *** Display remote inline images
  287. Org now knows how to display remote images inline.
  288. Whether the images are actually displayed is controlled by the new
  289. option ~org-display-remote-inline-images~.
  290. *** New option to resolve open clock at a provided time
  291. ~org-resolve-clocks~ now has a `t' option, which works just like the
  292. `k' option, but the user specifies a time of day, not a number of
  293. minutes.
  294. *** New step value =semimonth= accepted for clock tables
  295. *** Allow text rescaling in column view
  296. You can now use =C-x C-+= in column view: the columns face size will
  297. increase or decrease, together with the column header size.
  298. *** New startup option =#+startup: num=
  299. When this startup option is set, display headings as numerated.
  300. Use =#+startup: nonum= to turn this off.
  301. *** New tool for custom links
  302. Org provides a new tool ~org-link-open-as-file~, useful when defining
  303. new link types similar to "file"-type links. See docstring for
  304. details.
  305. *** New optional numeric argument for ~org-return~
  306. In situations where ~org-return~ calls ~newline~, multiple newlines
  307. can now be inserted with this prefix argument.
  308. *** New source code block header argument =:file-mode=
  309. Source code block header argument =:file-mode= can set file
  310. permissions if =:file= argument is provided.
  311. *** =RET= and =C-j= now obey ~electric-indent-mode~
  312. Since Emacs 24.4, ~electric-indent-mode~ is enabled by default. In
  313. most major modes, this causes =RET= to reindent the current line and
  314. indent the new line, and =C-j= to insert a newline without indenting.
  315. Org mode now obeys this minor mode: when ~electric-indent-mode~ is
  316. enabled, and point is neither in a table nor on a timestamp or a link:
  317. - =RET= (bound to ~org-return~) reindents the current line and indents
  318. the new line;
  319. - =C-j= (bound to the new command ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~)
  320. merely inserts a newline.
  321. To get the previous behaviour back, disable ~electric-indent-mode~
  322. explicitly:
  323. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  324. (add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (electric-indent-local-mode -1)))
  325. #+end_src
  326. Alternatively, if you wish to keep =RET= as the "smart-return" key,
  327. but dislike Org's default indentation of sections, you may prefer to
  328. customize ~org-adapt-indentation~ to either =nil= or ='headline-data=.
  329. *** =ob-C.el= allows the inclusion of non-system header files
  330. In C and C++ blocks, ~:includes~ arguments that do not start with a
  331. ~<~ character will now be formatted as double-quoted ~#include~
  332. statements.
  333. *** =ob-clojure.el= supports inf-clojure.el and ClojureScript evaluation
  334. You can now set ~(setq org-babel-clojure-backend 'inf-clojure)~ and
  335. evaluate Clojure source blocks using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/inf-clojure][inf-clojure]]. With a header
  336. argument like =:alias "alias"= the Clojure REPL will boot with
  337. =clojure -Aalias=. Otherwise Clojure will boot with =lein=, =boot= or
  338. =tools.deps=, depending on whether the current directory contains a
  339. =project.clj=, =build.boot= or =deps.edn=, falling back on
  340. ~inf-clojure-generic-cmd~ in case no such file is present.
  341. Also, when using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/cider][cider]], you can now use =#+begin_src clojurescript= to
  342. execute ClojureScript code from Org files. Note that this works only
  343. if your Org file is associated with a cider session that knows how to
  344. run ClojureScript code. A bare =lein repl= session outside of a
  345. directory configured for ClojureScript will /not/ work.
  346. *** =ob-java.el= supports Java command line arguments
  347. Babel Java blocks recognize header argument =:cmdargs= and pass its
  348. value in call to =java=.
  349. *** =ob-screen.el= now accepts =:screenrc= header argument
  350. Screen blocks now recognize the =:screenrc= header argument and pass
  351. its value to the screen command via the "-c" option. The default
  352. remains =/dev/null= (i.e. a clean screen session)
  353. *** =ob-plantuml=: now supports using PlantUML executable to generate diagrams
  354. Set =org-plantuml-exec-mode= to ='plantuml= in order to use the
  355. executable instead of JAR. When using an executable it is also
  356. possible to configure executable location as well as arguments via:
  357. =org-plantuml-executable-path= and =org-plantuml-executable-args=.
  358. ** New commands
  359. *** ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  360. Turn on a minor mode to display the first data row of the table at
  361. point in the header-line when the beginning of the table is invisible.
  362. *** ~org-agenda-ctrl-c-ctrl-c~
  363. Hitting =<C-c C-c>= in an agenda view now calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~.
  364. *** ~org-hide-entry~
  365. This command is the counterpart of ~org-show-entry~.
  366. *** ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~
  367. =<C-c C-c>= bound to ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~ replaces the
  368. recent ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~. Tag setting is still
  369. possible via column view value edit or with =<C-c C-q>=.
  370. *** ~org-datetree-find-month-create~
  371. Find or create a month entry for a date.
  372. ** New options and settings
  373. *** New option ~org-html-prefer-user-labels~
  374. When non-nil, use =NAME= affiliated keyword, or raw target values, to
  375. generate anchor's ID. Otherwise, consistently use internal naming
  376. scheme.
  377. =CUSTOM_ID= values are still always used, when available.
  378. *** New option for using tabs in ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  379. Choosing ~other-tab~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~ will open the
  380. agenda view in a new tab. This will work with versions of Emacs since
  381. 27.1 when ~tab-bar-mode~ was introduced.
  382. *** New option ~org-table-header-line-p~
  383. Setting this option to =t= will activate ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  384. in org-mode buffers.
  385. *** New option ~org-startup-numerated~
  386. When this option is =t=, Org files will start using ~(org-num-mode 1)~
  387. and headings will be visually numerated.
  388. You can turn this on/off on a per-file basis with =#+startup: num= or
  389. =#+startup: nonum=.
  390. *** New option ~org-clock-auto-clockout-timer~
  391. When this option is set to a number and the user configuration
  392. contains =(org-clock-auto-clockout-insinuate)=, Org will clock out the
  393. currently clocked in task after that number of seconds of idle time.
  394. This is useful when you often forget to clock out before being idle
  395. and don't want to have to manually set the clocking time to take into
  396. account.
  397. *** New option to group captured datetime entries by month
  398. A new `:tree-type month' option was added to org-capture-templates to
  399. group new datetime entries by month.
  400. *** New option to show source buffers using "plain" display-buffer
  401. There is a new option ~plain~ to ~org-src-window-setup~ to show source
  402. buffers using ~display-buffer~. This allows users to control how
  403. source buffers are displayed by modifying ~display-buffer-alist~ or
  404. ~display-buffer-base-action~.
  405. *** New option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~
  406. Archiving a subtree used to always save the target archive buffer.
  407. Commit [[https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode/commit/b186d1d7][b186d1d7]] changed this behavior by always not saving the target
  408. buffer, because batch archiving from agenda could take too much time.
  409. This new option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~ defaults to the
  410. value =from-org= so that archiving a subtree will save the target
  411. buffer when done from an org-mode buffer, but not from the agenda.
  412. You can also set this option to =t= or to =from-agenda=.
  413. *** New option ~org-show-notification-timeout~
  414. This option will add a timeout to notifications.
  415. *** New option ~org-latex-to-html-convert-command~
  416. This new option allows you to convert a LaTeX fragment directly into
  417. HTML.
  418. *** New option ~org-babel-shell-results-defaults-to-output~
  419. By default, source code blocks are executed in "functional mode": it
  420. means that the results of executing them are the value of their last
  421. statement (see [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Results-of-Evaluation.html][the documentation]].)
  422. The value of a shell script's execution is its exit code. But most
  423. users expect the results of executing a shell script to be its output,
  424. not its exit code.
  425. So we introduced this option, that you can set to =nil= if you want
  426. to stick using ~:results value~ as the implicit header.
  427. In all Babel libraries, the absence of a ~:results~ header should
  428. produce the same result than setting ~:results value~, unless there is
  429. an option to explicitly create an exception.
  430. See [[https://orgmode.org/list/CA+A2iZaziAfMeGpBqL6qGrzrWEVvLvC0DUw++T4gCF3NGuW-DQ@mail.gmail.com/][this thread]] for more context.
  431. *** New option in ~org-attach-store-link-p~
  432. ~org-attach-store-link-p~ has a new option to store a file link to the
  433. attachment.
  434. *** New option ~org-fontify-todo-headline~
  435. This feature is the same as ~org-fontify-done-headline~, but for TODO
  436. headlines instead. This allows you to distinguish TODO headlines from
  437. normal headlines. The face can be customized via ~org-headline-todo~.
  438. *** New default value for ~org-file-apps~
  439. The new value uses Emacs as the application for opening directory.
  440. *** New hook ~org-agenda-filter-hook~
  441. Functions in this hook are run after ~org-agenda-filter~ is called.
  442. ** Removed or renamed functions and variables
  443. *** Deprecated ~org-flag-drawer~ function
  444. Use ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ instead.
  445. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-maybe~ function
  446. Use ~org-hide-block-toggle~ instead.
  447. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-all~ function
  448. This function was not used in the code base, and has no clear use
  449. either. It has been marked for future removal. Please contact the
  450. mailing list if you use this function.
  451. *** Deprecated ~org-return-indent~ function
  452. In Elisp code, use ~(org-return t)~ instead. Interactively, =C-j= is
  453. now bound to ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~, which indents the new line
  454. when ~electric-indent-mode~ is disabled.
  455. *** Removed ~org-maybe-keyword-time-regexp~
  456. The variable was not used in the code base.
  457. *** Removed ~org-export-special-keywords~
  458. The variable was not used in the code base.
  459. *** Renamed ~org-at-property-block-p~
  460. The new name is ~org-at-property-drawer-p~, which is less confusing.
  461. *** Renamed ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~
  462. See [[*~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~]].
  463. *** Renamed priority options
  464. From ~org-lowest-priority~ to ~org-priority-lowest~.
  465. From ~org-default-priority~ to ~org-priority-default~.
  466. From ~org-highest-priority~ to ~org-priority-highest~.
  467. From ~org-enable-priority-commands~ to ~org-priority-enable-commands~.
  468. From ~org-show-priority~ to ~org-priority-show~.
  469. ** Miscellaneous
  470. *** =ob-screen.el= now respects screen =:session= name
  471. Screen babel session are now named based on the =:session= header
  472. argument (defaults to ~default~).
  473. Previously all session names had ~org-babel-session-~ prepended.
  474. *** Forward/backward paragraph functions in line with the rest of Emacs
  475. ~org-forward-paragraph~ and ~org-backward-paragraph~, bound to
  476. ~<C-UP>~ and ~<C-DOWN>~ functions mimic more closely behaviour of
  477. ~forward-paragraph~ and ~backward-paragraph~ functions when
  478. available.
  479. They also accept an optional argument for multiple calls.
  480. See their docstring for details.
  481. *** ~org-table-to-lisp~ no longer checks if point is at a table
  482. The caller is now responsible for the check. It can use, e.g.,
  483. ~org-at-table-p~.
  484. The function is also much more efficient than it used to be, even on
  485. very large tables.
  486. *** New function ~org-collect-keywords~
  487. *** Drawers' folding use an API similar to block's
  488. Tooling for folding drawers interactively or programmatically is now
  489. on par with block folding. In particular, ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~,
  490. a new function, is the central place for drawer folding.
  491. *** Duration can be read and written in compact form
  492. ~org-duration-to-minutes~ understands =1d3h5min= as a duration,
  493. whereas ~org-duration-from-minutes~ can output this compact form if
  494. the duration format contains the symbol ~compact~.
  495. *** C-n, C-p, SPC and DEL in agenda commands dispatch window
  496. You can now use =<C-n>=, =<C-p>=, =<SPC>= and =<DEL>= key to scroll up
  497. and down the agenda and attach dispatch window.
  498. *** =<C-c C-c>= in agenda calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~
  499. Both =<C-c C-q>= and =<C-c C-c>= set the tags of the headline in the
  500. Org buffer. Both keybindings are now available from the agenda too.
  501. *** Allow to use an empty HTML extension
  502. Using =(setq org-html-extension "")= or setting the HTML extension in
  503. any fashion will produce the expected output, with no trailing period
  504. to the resulting HTML file.
  505. *** Handle repeated tasks with =.+= type and hours step
  506. A task using a =.+= repeater and hours step is repeated starting from
  507. now. E.g.,
  508. #+begin_example
  509. ,,** TODO Wash my hands
  510. DEADLINE: <2019-04-05 08:00 Sun .+1h>
  511. Marking this DONE shifts the date to exactly one hour from now.
  512. #+end_example
  513. *** The format of equation reference in HTML export can now be specified
  514. By default, HTML (via MathJax) and LaTeX export equation references
  515. using different commands. LaTeX must use ~\ref{%s}~ because it is used
  516. for all labels; however, HTML (via MathJax) uses ~\eqref{%s}~ for
  517. equations producing inconsistent output. New option
  518. ~org-html-equation-reference-format~ sets the command used in HTML
  519. export.
  520. *** =ob-haskell.el= supports compilation with =:compile= header argument
  521. By default, Haskell blocks are interpreted. By adding =:compile yes=
  522. to a Haskell source block, it will be compiled, executed and the
  523. results will be displayed.
  524. *** Support for ~org-edit-special~ with LaTeX fragments
  525. Calling ~org-edit-special~ on an inline LaTeX fragment calls a new
  526. function, ~org-edit-latex-fragment~. This functions in a comparable
  527. manner to editing inline source blocks, bringing up a minibuffer set
  528. to LaTeX mode. The math-mode deliminators are read only.
  529. *** ~org-capture-current-plist~ is now accessible during ~org-capture-mode-hook~
  530. *** New =org-refile.el= file
  531. Org refile variables and functions have been moved to a new file.
  532. *** The end of a 7 years old bug
  533. This bug [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-08/msg00072.html][originally reported]] by Matt Lundin and investigated by Andrew
  534. Hyatt has been fixed. Thanks to both of them.
  535. * Version 9.3
  536. ** Incompatible changes
  537. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  538. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  539. bracket links.
  540. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  541. to the following rules:
  542. 1. All =[= and =]= characters in the URI must be escaped;
  543. 2. Every =\= character preceding either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  544. 3. Every =\= character at the end of the URI must be escaped.
  545. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  546. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  547. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  548. syntax:
  549. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  550. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  551. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  552. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  553. is non-nil."
  554. (interactive "P")
  555. (org-with-point-at 1
  556. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  557. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  558. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  559. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  560. (= (match-beginning 0)
  561. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  562. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  563. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  564. (uri-end (save-excursion
  565. (goto-char uri-start)
  566. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  567. (match-beginning 0)))
  568. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  569. (when (or no-query
  570. (y-or-n-p
  571. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  572. uri)))
  573. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  574. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  575. #+end_src
  576. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  577. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  578. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  579. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  580. group 3.
  581. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  582. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  583. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  584. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  585. behavior will not happen automatically.
  586. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  587. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  588. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  589. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  590. it is.
  591. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  592. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  593. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  594. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  595. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  596. You can get the old behavior back with the following:
  597. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  598. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  599. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  600. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  601. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  602. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  603. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  604. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  605. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  606. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  607. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  608. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  609. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  610. since now it's implicitly always true.
  611. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  612. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  613. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  614. auto-commit attachments to git:
  615. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  616. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  617. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  618. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  619. ** New features
  620. *** New option to wrap source code lines in HTML export
  621. When new option ~html-wrap-src-lines~ (with variable
  622. ~org-html-wrap-src-lines~) is non-nil, HTML export wraps source code
  623. lines in HTML ~code~ elements.
  624. *** New option to handle schedules and deadlines in iCalendar export
  625. Export ignore done tasks with a deadline when
  626. ~org-icalendar-use-deadline~ contains ~event-if-todo-not-done~.
  627. Likewise, scheduled done tasks are also ignored when
  628. ~org-icalendar-use-scheduled~ contains the same symbol.
  629. *** Add ~split-window-right~ option for src block edit window placement
  630. Given the increasing popularity of wide screen monitors, splitting
  631. horizontally may make more sense than splitting vertically. An
  632. option, ~split-window-right~, to request horizontal splitting has been
  633. added to ~org-src-window-setup~.
  634. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  635. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  636. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  637. and extra options have been added as well.
  638. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  639. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  640. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  641. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  642. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  643. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  644. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  645. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  646. account).
  647. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  648. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  649. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  650. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  651. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favor of the shorter
  652. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  653. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  654. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  655. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  656. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  657. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  658. was the behavior before this change.
  659. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  660. precedence and will be used.
  661. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  662. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  663. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  664. your own function and add it to the beginning of
  665. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~list~ if you want to customize the ID
  666. based folder structure.
  667. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  668. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  669. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  670. removed.
  671. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  672. (defun org-update-attach-properties ()
  673. "Change properties for Org-Attach."
  674. (interactive)
  675. (org-with-point-at 1
  676. (while (outline-next-heading)
  677. (let ((DIR (org--property-local-values "ATTACH_DIR" nil)))
  678. (when DIR
  679. (org-set-property "DIR" (car DIR))
  680. (org-delete-property "ATTACH_DIR"))))
  681. (org-delete-property-globally "ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT")))
  682. #+end_src
  683. For those who hate breaking changes, even though the changes are made
  684. to clean things up; fear not. ATTACH_DIR will still continue to work.
  685. It's just not documented any longer. When you get the chance, run the
  686. code above to clean things up anyway!
  687. **** New hooks
  688. Two hooks are added to org-attach:
  689. - org-attach-after-change-hook
  690. - org-attach-open-hook
  691. They are added mostly for internal restructuring purposes, but can
  692. ofc. be used for other things as well.
  693. *** New link-type: Attachment
  694. Attachment-links are now first-class citizens. They mimic file-links
  695. in everything they do but use the existing attachment-folder as a base
  696. when expanding the links. Both =DIR= and =ID= properties are used to
  697. try to resolve the links, in exactly the same way as Org-Attach uses
  698. those properties.
  699. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  700. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  701. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  702. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  703. numbered list to a lettered list.
  704. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  705. You can add new dynamic blocks with function
  706. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All such dynamic blocks can be used by
  707. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  708. *** Babel
  709. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  710. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  711. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  712. parameter.
  713. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  714. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  715. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  716. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  717. changes in the buffer.
  718. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  719. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  720. a headline.
  721. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  722. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  723. ~:caption~.
  724. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  725. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  726. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  727. attachment directory.
  728. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  729. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  730. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  731. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  732. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  733. interpreted as publicly visible, accessible to a specific group, and
  734. private respectively.
  735. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  736. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  737. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  738. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  739. system than the main Org document. For example:
  740. #+begin_example
  741. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  742. #+end_example
  743. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  744. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  745. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  746. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  747. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  748. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  749. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  750. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  751. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  752. LaTeX font locking.
  753. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learned to shift backward in time
  754. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  755. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  756. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  757. days in the past.
  758. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  759. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  760. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  761. This is a function for convenience.
  762. *** New parameter for SQL Babel blocks: ~:dbconnection~
  763. The new parameter ~:dbconnection~ allows to specify a connection name
  764. in a SQL block header: this name is used to look up connection
  765. parameters in ~sql-connection-alist~.
  766. *** New =:scale= attribute supported by LaTeX exporters
  767. The builtin "latex" exporters now accept and use a =:scale= attribute,
  768. which scales an image by a given factor.
  769. This attribute is wrapped around the =scale= parameter of LaTeX's
  770. =\includegraphics= (bitmap images) or a TiKZ's =\scalebox=.
  771. Therefore, its value should be some string palatable to LaTeX as
  772. a positive float Its default value is an empty string (i.e. disabled).
  773. This attribute overrides the =:width= and =:height= attributes.
  774. #+begin_example
  775. ,#+name: Beastie
  776. ,#+caption: I think I saw this curious horse already, but where ?
  777. ,#+LATEX_ATTR: :scale 2
  778. [[https://orgmode.org/img/org-mode-unicorn-logo.png]]
  779. #+end_example
  780. *** Allow specifying the target for a table of contents
  781. The =+TOC= keyword now accepts a =:target:= attribute that specifies
  782. the headline to use for making the table of contents.
  783. #+begin_example
  784. ,* Target
  785. :PROPERTIES:
  786. :CUSTOM_ID: TargetSection
  787. :END:
  788. ,** Heading A
  789. ,** Heading B
  790. ,* Another section
  791. ,#+TOC: headlines 1 :target "#TargetSection"
  792. #+end_example
  793. ** New functions
  794. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  795. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  796. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  797. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  798. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  799. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  800. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  801. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  802. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  803. ** Removed functions and variables
  804. *** Removed Org Drill
  805. You can install it back from MELPA.
  806. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  807. *** ~org-capture-insert-template-here~
  808. *** ~org-attach-directory~
  809. It has been deprecated in favor of ~org-attach-id-dir~ which is less
  810. ambiguous given the restructured org-attach.
  811. *** ~org-enable-fixed-width-editor~
  812. This variable was not used through the code base.
  813. ** Miscellaneous
  814. *** Change signature for ~org-list-to-subtree~
  815. The function now accepts the level of the subtree as an optional
  816. argument. It no longer deduces it from the current level.
  817. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  818. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  819. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  820. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  821. *** ~org-table-copy-down~ supports patterns
  822. When ~org-table-copy-increment~ is non-nil, it is now possible to
  823. increment fields like =A1=, or =0A=, i.e., any string prefixed or
  824. suffixed with a whole number.
  825. *** No more special indentation for description items
  826. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  827. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  828. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  829. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  830. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  831. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  832. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  833. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  834. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  835. interface.
  836. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  837. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  838. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  839. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  840. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  841. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  842. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  843. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  844. *** New variable ~org-attach-commands~
  845. This variable makes it possible to customize the list of commands for
  846. the attachment dispatcher.
  847. *** New ID method based on timestamp
  848. If one chooses, it is now possible to create ID's based on timestamp
  849. (ISO8601) instead of UUID by changing org-id-method to ts.
  850. For an improved folder structure when using timestamp as ID, make sure
  851. to promote ~org-attach-id-ts-folder-format~ to the first element of
  852. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function-list~ in your configuration at the
  853. same time.
  854. *** New customization: ~org-id-locations-relative~
  855. New customization to make the persisting of org-id-locations between
  856. sessions to store links to files as relative instead of absolute. The
  857. links will be stored as relative to the path of org-id-locations-file.
  858. *** ~org-ctrl-c-tab~ is functional before the first headline
  859. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  860. Also fold everything below the chosen level. Former behavior was to
  861. leave unfolded subtrees unfolded.
  862. *** ~org-kill-note-or-show-branches~ is functional before the first headline
  863. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  864. *** Respect narrowing when agenda command is restricted to buffer
  865. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts the column at point position
  866. Before, the new column was inserted to the right of the column at
  867. point position.
  868. *** Table column deletion now consistent with row deletion
  869. Point stays in the column at deletion, except when deleting the
  870. rightmost column.
  871. * Version 9.2
  872. ** Incompatible changes
  873. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  874. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  875. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  876. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  877. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  878. to use =orgalist.el=, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  879. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  880. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  881. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  882. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  883. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  884. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  885. you probably need to update it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  886. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  887. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  888. : (require 'org-tempo)
  889. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  890. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  891. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  892. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  893. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  894. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  895. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  896. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  897. unique, Noweb reference.
  898. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  899. ,#+NAME: foo
  900. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  901. 1
  902. ,#+END_SRC
  903. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  904. 2
  905. ,#+END_SRC
  906. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  907. <<foo>>
  908. ,#+END_SRC
  909. #+END_SRC
  910. should become
  911. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  912. ,#+NAME: foo
  913. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  914. 1
  915. ,#+END_SRC
  916. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  917. 2
  918. ,#+END_SRC
  919. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  920. <<bar>>
  921. ,#+END_SRC
  922. #+END_SRC
  923. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  924. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  925. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  926. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  927. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  928. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  929. :
  930. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  931. Check the full docstring for more.
  932. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  933. Here is the new docstring:
  934. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  935. :
  936. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  937. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  938. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  939. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  940. : variables is set.
  941. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  942. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  943. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  944. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  945. examples:
  946. #+begin_example
  947. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  948. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  949. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  950. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  951. #+end_example
  952. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  953. #+begin_example
  954. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  955. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  956. #+end_example
  957. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  958. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  959. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  960. aligning.
  961. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  962. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  963. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  964. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  965. #+END_EXAMPLE
  966. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  967. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  968. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  969. local tags. In order to get the old behavior back, you can use:
  970. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  971. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  972. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  973. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  974. code-point.
  975. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  976. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  977. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  978. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  979. dedicated column.
  980. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  981. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  982. ** New features
  983. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  984. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  985. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  986. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  987. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  988. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  989. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  990. #+begin_src clojure :session
  991. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  992. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  993. #+end_src
  994. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  995. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  996. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  997. #+begin_example
  998. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  999. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  1000. ,#+end_src
  1001. ,#+results:
  1002. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  1003. #+end_example
  1004. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  1005. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  1006. console.log("stardiviner")
  1007. #+end_src
  1008. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  1009. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  1010. console.log("stardiviner")
  1011. #+end_src
  1012. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  1013. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  1014. console.log("stardiviner")
  1015. #+end_src
  1016. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  1017. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  1018. add a label to the rendered equation.
  1019. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  1020. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  1021. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  1022. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  1023. manual for details.
  1024. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  1025. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  1026. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  1027. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1028. ,* Top [1/2]
  1029. ,** DONE Completed
  1030. ,** TODO Working
  1031. #+END_SRC
  1032. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  1033. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  1034. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  1035. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  1036. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  1037. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  1038. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  1039. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  1040. its previous state.
  1041. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  1042. size.
  1043. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  1044. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  1045. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  1046. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1047. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  1048. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  1049. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  1050. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  1051. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  1052. prop
  1053. "0")))
  1054. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  1055. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  1056. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  1057. #+END_SRC
  1058. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  1059. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1060. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  1061. ,* All shipments
  1062. ,** Shipment 1
  1063. :PROPERTIES:
  1064. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  1065. :Bananas: 4
  1066. :END:
  1067. ,** Shipment 2
  1068. :PROPERTIES:
  1069. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  1070. :BANANAS: 7
  1071. :END:
  1072. #+END_SRC
  1073. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  1074. you should expect to see something like:
  1075. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  1076. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  1077. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  1078. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  1079. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  1080. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1081. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  1082. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1083. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  1084. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  1085. matcher.
  1086. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  1087. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1088. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  1089. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  1090. parameters. See example below.
  1091. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1092. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  1093. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  1094. select sysdate from dual;
  1095. ,#+END_SRC
  1096. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  1097. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  1098. select sysdate from dual;
  1099. ,#+END_SRC
  1100. #+END_SRC
  1101. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  1102. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  1103. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  1104. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  1105. remove it.
  1106. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  1107. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  1108. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  1109. ** New commands and functions
  1110. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  1111. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  1112. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  1113. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  1114. See docstring for details.
  1115. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  1116. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  1117. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  1118. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  1119. See docstring for details.
  1120. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  1121. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  1122. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  1123. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  1124. will go back to the widen state.
  1125. *** ~org-browse-news~
  1126. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read information
  1127. about the last major release.
  1128. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  1129. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  1130. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  1131. on the context.
  1132. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  1133. ** Removed commands and functions
  1134. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  1135. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  1136. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  1137. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  1138. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  1139. It was not used throughout the code base.
  1140. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  1141. It was not used throughout code base.
  1142. *** ~org-context-p~
  1143. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  1144. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  1145. It is no longer used in the code base.
  1146. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  1147. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  1148. ** Removed options
  1149. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  1150. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  1151. ** Miscellaneous
  1152. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  1153. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  1154. handled specially by default.
  1155. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  1156. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  1157. handled specially by default.
  1158. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  1159. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  1160. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  1161. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  1162. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  1163. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  1164. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  1165. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  1166. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  1167. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  1168. reciprocal.
  1169. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  1170. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  1171. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  1172. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  1173. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  1174. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  1175. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  1176. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  1177. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  1178. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  1179. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  1180. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  1181. rules instead of by code-point.
  1182. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  1183. * Version 9.1
  1184. ** Incompatible changes
  1185. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  1186. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  1187. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  1188. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  1189. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  1190. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  1191. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  1192. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  1193. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  1194. accordingly.
  1195. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  1196. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  1197. is to turn, e.g.,
  1198. : (file (sexp))
  1199. into
  1200. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  1201. *** Deleted contributed packages
  1202. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  1203. from the contrib/ directory.
  1204. You can now find them here :
  1205. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  1206. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  1207. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  1208. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  1209. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  1210. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  1211. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  1212. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  1213. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  1214. changes to site-map generation.
  1215. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  1216. to the following
  1217. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  1218. (lambda (entry style project)
  1219. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  1220. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  1221. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  1222. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  1223. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  1224. (t entry)))
  1225. #+END_SRC
  1226. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  1227. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  1228. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  1229. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  1230. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  1231. list as their first argument.
  1232. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  1233. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  1234. See docstring for details.
  1235. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  1236. See docstring for changes.
  1237. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  1238. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  1239. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  1240. details.
  1241. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  1242. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  1243. keywords.
  1244. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  1245. It used to return nil.
  1246. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  1247. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  1248. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  1249. MELPA repository.
  1250. ** New features
  1251. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  1252. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  1253. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  1254. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  1255. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  1256. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  1257. specified as in "Europe/London".
  1258. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  1259. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  1260. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  1261. directory to old, ID based one.
  1262. *** New Org duration library
  1263. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  1264. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  1265. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  1266. docstrings.
  1267. *** Agenda
  1268. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  1269. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  1270. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  1271. See docstring for details.
  1272. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1273. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  1274. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  1275. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  1276. the default setting.
  1277. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  1278. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  1279. directories in published site-maps.
  1280. *** Babel
  1281. **** Scheme: support for tables
  1282. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  1283. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  1284. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  1285. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  1286. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1287. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  1288. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  1289. with the content to be added.
  1290. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  1291. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  1292. before this let form.
  1293. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  1294. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  1295. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  1296. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  1297. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  1298. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  1299. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1300. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  1301. window/buffer.
  1302. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  1303. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  1304. option in the code block's header like this:
  1305. #+begin_example
  1306. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  1307. (dotimes [n 10]
  1308. (println n ".")
  1309. (Thread/sleep 500))
  1310. ,#+END_SRC
  1311. #+end_example
  1312. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  1313. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  1314. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  1315. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  1316. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  1317. =#+RESULTS= section.
  1318. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  1319. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  1320. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  1321. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  1322. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  1323. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  1324. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  1325. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  1326. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  1327. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  1328. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  1329. results in a beamer presentation.
  1330. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  1331. [[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
  1332. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  1333. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  1334. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  1335. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  1336. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  1337. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1338. #+begin_example
  1339. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  1340. Select * From Users
  1341. Where clue > 0
  1342. ,#+END_SRC
  1343. #+end_example
  1344. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  1345. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  1346. against HP Vertica.
  1347. 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]]
  1348. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1349. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1350. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  1351. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  1352. ,#+END_SRC
  1353. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1354. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  1355. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  1356. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  1357. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  1358. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  1359. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  1360. using ~:namespaces~:
  1361. #+begin_example
  1362. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  1363. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  1364. ,#+END_SRC
  1365. #+end_example
  1366. **** Support for Vala language
  1367. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  1368. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  1369. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  1370. 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~]]
  1371. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  1372. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  1373. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  1374. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  1375. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  1376. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  1377. *** Export
  1378. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  1379. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  1380. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  1381. contents, are now supported.
  1382. **** Add Slovenian translations
  1383. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  1384. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  1385. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  1386. details.
  1387. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  1388. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  1389. manual for details.
  1390. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  1391. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  1392. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  1393. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  1394. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  1395. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  1396. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  1397. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  1398. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  1399. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  1400. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  1401. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  1402. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  1403. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  1404. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  1405. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  1406. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  1407. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  1408. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  1409. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  1410. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  1411. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  1412. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  1413. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  1414. to the document.
  1415. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  1416. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  1417. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  1418. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  1419. ~uniquify.el~.
  1420. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  1421. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  1422. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  1423. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  1424. to ~org-file-contents~.
  1425. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  1426. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  1427. that file cache.
  1428. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  1429. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  1430. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  1431. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  1432. ** Removed functions
  1433. *** Org Timeline
  1434. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  1435. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  1436. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1437. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1438. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1439. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1440. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  1441. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1442. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  1443. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  1444. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1445. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1446. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1447. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1448. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  1449. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  1450. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1451. ** Removed options
  1452. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  1453. For an equivalent to a =nil= value, set
  1454. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  1455. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to =t=.
  1456. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  1457. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  1458. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1459. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  1460. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  1461. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  1462. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  1463. equivalent to the removed format string.
  1464. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  1465. Setting it to a =nil= value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  1466. keys).
  1467. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  1468. The variable is now a boolean.
  1469. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  1470. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  1471. ** New functions
  1472. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  1473. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  1474. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  1475. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  1476. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  1477. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1478. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  1479. ** Miscellaneous
  1480. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  1481. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  1482. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  1483. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  1484. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  1485. *** Allow multiple columns view
  1486. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  1487. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  1488. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  1489. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  1490. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  1491. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  1492. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  1493. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  1494. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  1495. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  1496. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  1497. used to describe the time span.
  1498. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  1499. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  1500. far away in the future.
  1501. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  1502. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  1503. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  1504. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  1505. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  1506. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  1507. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  1508. See docstring for details.
  1509. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  1510. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  1511. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  1512. is now obsolete.
  1513. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  1514. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  1515. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  1516. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  1517. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  1518. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  1519. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  1520. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  1521. suitable as a default value.
  1522. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  1523. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  1524. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  1525. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are covered by
  1526. rewrite rules.
  1527. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  1528. * Version 9.0
  1529. ** Incompatible changes
  1530. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  1531. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  1532. above is suggested.
  1533. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  1534. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  1535. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  1536. our mailing list.
  1537. *** New syntax for export blocks
  1538. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  1539. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  1540. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1541. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  1542. ...
  1543. ,#+END_EXPORT
  1544. #+END_SRC
  1545. instead of
  1546. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1547. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  1548. ...
  1549. ,#+END_backend
  1550. #+END_SRC
  1551. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  1552. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1553. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  1554. #+END_SRC
  1555. becomes
  1556. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1557. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  1558. #+END_SRC
  1559. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  1560. using previous syntax:
  1561. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1562. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  1563. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1564. (interactive)
  1565. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1566. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1567. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1568. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1569. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1570. t)))
  1571. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1572. (goto-char (point-min))
  1573. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1574. (save-excursion
  1575. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  1576. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1577. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1578. (save-excursion
  1579. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1580. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1581. (forward-char)
  1582. (insert "EXPORT")
  1583. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1584. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1585. (let ((include-re
  1586. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1587. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1588. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1589. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1590. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1591. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1592. #+END_SRC
  1593. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1594. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1595. removed.
  1596. *** Footnotes changes
  1597. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1598. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1599. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1600. constructs are now unsupported.
  1601. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1602. =[fn:N]=.
  1603. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1604. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1605. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1606. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1607. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1608. exists.
  1609. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1610. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1611. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1612. is straightforward. For example
  1613. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1614. becomes
  1615. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1616. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1617. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1618. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1619. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1620. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1621. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1622. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1623. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1624. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1625. such, the following
  1626. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1627. ,* Headline
  1628. :PROPERTIES:
  1629. :exports: code
  1630. :var: a=1 b=2
  1631. :var+: c=3
  1632. :END:
  1633. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1634. should be written instead
  1635. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1636. ,* Headline
  1637. :PROPERTIES:
  1638. :header-args: :exports code
  1639. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1640. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1641. :END:
  1642. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1643. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1644. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1645. ** New features
  1646. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1647. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1648. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1649. #+begin_example
  1650. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1651. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1652. #+end_example
  1653. Old-style links such as
  1654. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1655. continue to be supported.
  1656. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1657. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1658. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1659. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1660. lists.
  1661. *** New Org linter library
  1662. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1663. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1664. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1665. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1666. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1667. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1668. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1669. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1670. *** Export
  1671. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1672. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1673. details.
  1674. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1675. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1676. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1677. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1678. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1679. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1680. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1681. for more details.
  1682. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1683. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1684. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1685. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1686. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1687. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1688. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1689. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1690. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1691. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1692. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1693. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1694. used.
  1695. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1696. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1697. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1698. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1699. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1700. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1701. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1702. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1703. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1704. (message "This is line 21")
  1705. ,#+END_SRC
  1706. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1707. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1708. (message "This is line 32")
  1709. ,#+END_SRC
  1710. #+END_SRC
  1711. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1712. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1713. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1714. export.
  1715. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1716. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1717. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1718. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1719. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1720. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1721. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1722. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1723. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1724. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1725. *** Babel
  1726. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1727. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1728. **** Support for Lua language
  1729. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1730. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1731. **** Support for Stan language
  1732. New ob-stan.el library.
  1733. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1734. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1735. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1736. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1737. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1738. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1739. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1740. that does not end in ".stan".
  1741. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1742. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1743. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1744. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1745. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1746. mandatory):
  1747. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1748. :engine oracle
  1749. :dbhost <host.com>
  1750. :dbport <1521>
  1751. :dbuser <username>
  1752. :database <database>
  1753. :dbpassword <secret>
  1754. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1755. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1756. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1757. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1758. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1759. like this:
  1760. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1761. :engine mssql
  1762. :dbhost <host.com>
  1763. :dbuser <username>
  1764. :dbpassword <secret>
  1765. :database <database>
  1766. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1767. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1768. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1769. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1770. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1771. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1772. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1773. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1774. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1775. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1776. include:
  1777. All Diagrams:
  1778. - png ::
  1779. - svg ::
  1780. - eps ::
  1781. - pdf ::
  1782. - vdx ::
  1783. - txt :: ASCII art
  1784. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1785. Class Diagrams:
  1786. - xmi ::
  1787. - html ::
  1788. State Diagrams:
  1789. - scxml ::
  1790. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1791. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1792. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1793. @startuml
  1794. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1795. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1796. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1797. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1798. @enduml
  1799. #+end_src
  1800. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1801. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1802. details and setup information.
  1803. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1804. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1805. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1806. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1807. for details.
  1808. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1809. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1810. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1811. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1812. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1813. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1814. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1815. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1816. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1817. by ISO week and not by month.
  1818. For example:
  1819. : * 2015
  1820. : ** 2015-W35
  1821. : ** 2015-W36
  1822. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1823. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1824. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1825. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1826. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1827. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1828. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1829. *** Columns view
  1830. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1831. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1832. buffer unconditionally.
  1833. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1834. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1835. **** Allow custom summaries
  1836. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1837. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1838. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1839. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1840. types.
  1841. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1842. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1843. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1844. a git repository.
  1845. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1846. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1847. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1848. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1849. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1850. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1851. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1852. first footnote.
  1853. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1854. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1855. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1856. the manual for details.
  1857. *** Links are now customizable
  1858. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1859. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1860. ** New functions
  1861. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1862. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1863. *** ~org-show-children~
  1864. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1865. ** Removed functions
  1866. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1867. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1868. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1869. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1870. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1871. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1872. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1873. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1874. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1875. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1876. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1877. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1878. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1879. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1880. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1881. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1882. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1883. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1884. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1885. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1886. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1887. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1888. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1889. The affected functions are:
  1890. - ~org-count~
  1891. - ~org-remove-if~
  1892. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1893. - ~org-reduce~
  1894. - ~org-every~
  1895. - ~org-some~
  1896. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1897. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1898. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1899. ** Removed options
  1900. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1901. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1902. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1903. let those libraries operate.
  1904. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1905. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1906. plain list.
  1907. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1908. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1909. ** Miscellaneous
  1910. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1911. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1912. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1913. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1914. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1915. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1916. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1917. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1918. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1919. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1920. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1921. Org files.
  1922. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1923. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1924. indentation.
  1925. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1926. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1927. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1928. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1929. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1930. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1931. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1932. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1933. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1934. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1935. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1936. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1937. to the article's original group.
  1938. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1939. The calling convention has changed.
  1940. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1941. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1942. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1943. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1944. called with 6 parameters.
  1945. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1946. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1947. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1948. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1949. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1950. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1951. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1952. the end of the string.
  1953. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1954. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1955. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1956. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1957. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1958. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1959. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1960. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1961. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1962. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1963. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1964. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1965. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1966. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1967. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1968. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1969. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1970. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1971. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1972. future.)
  1973. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1974. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1975. modified anyway.
  1976. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1977. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1978. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1979. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1980. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1981. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1982. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1983. indication letter was solely J.
  1984. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1985. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1986. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1987. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1988. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1989. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1990. a ~defvar~.
  1991. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1992. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1993. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1994. * Version 8.3
  1995. ** Incompatible changes
  1996. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1997. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1998. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1999. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  2000. logged before the property drawer.
  2001. The following function will repair them:
  2002. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2003. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  2004. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  2005. Ignore non Org buffers."
  2006. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  2007. (org-with-wide-buffer
  2008. (goto-char (point-min))
  2009. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  2010. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  2011. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  2012. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  2013. (org-map-entries
  2014. (lambda ()

  2029. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  2030. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  2031. #+END_SRC
  2032. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  2033. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  2034. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  2035. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  2036. into account when exporting.
  2037. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  2038. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  2039. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  2040. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  2041. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  2042. 5.14 (2008).
  2043. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  2044. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  2045. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2046. ,* Headline
  2047. :PROPERTIES:
  2048. :CATEGORY: some category
  2049. :END:
  2050. #+END_SRC
  2051. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  2052. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  2053. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  2054. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  2055. see.
  2056. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  2057. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  2058. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  2059. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  2060. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  2061. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  2062. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  2063. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  2064. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  2065. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  2066. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  2067. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  2068. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  2069. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  2070. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  2071. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  2072. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  2073. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  2074. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  2075. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  2076. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  2077. *** Functions signature changes
  2078. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  2079. docstring for more information.
  2080. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  2081. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  2082. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  2083. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  2084. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  2085. - ~org-link-search~
  2086. ** New features
  2087. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  2088. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  2089. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  2090. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  2091. :lexical yes
  2092. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  2093. :lexical no
  2094. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  2095. :lexical '((x . 42))
  2096. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  2097. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  2098. without changing the headline.
  2099. *** Hierarchies of tags
  2100. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to Org mode.
  2101. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  2102. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  2103. The following in-buffer definition:
  2104. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2105. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  2106. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  2107. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  2108. #+END_SRC
  2109. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  2110. - Group
  2111. - SubOne
  2112. - SubOne1
  2113. - SubOne2
  2114. - SubTwo
  2115. - SubTwo1
  2116. - SubTwo2
  2117. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  2118. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  2119. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  2120. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  2121. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  2122. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  2123. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  2124. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  2125. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  2126. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  2127. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  2128. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  2129. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2130. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  2131. #+END_SRC
  2132. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  2133. grouptags; { }.
  2134. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  2135. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  2136. "sub-tags".
  2137. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  2138. Example use:
  2139. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  2140. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  2141. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  2142. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  2143. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  2144. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  2145. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  2146. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  2147. levels anymore.
  2148. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  2149. is also used as a filter.
  2150. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  2151. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  2152. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  2153. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  2154. exclude.
  2155. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  2156. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  2157. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  2158. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  2159. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  2160. New ob-processing.el library.
  2161. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  2162. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  2163. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  2164. Check the documentation for more details.
  2165. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  2166. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  2167. The new behavior is the following:
  2168. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  2169. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  2170. buffer;
  2171. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  2172. subtree;
  2173. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  2174. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  2175. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  2176. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  2177. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  2178. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  2179. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  2180. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  2181. more information.
  2182. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  2183. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  2184. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  2185. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  2186. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  2187. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  2188. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  2189. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  2190. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  2191. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  2192. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  2193. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  2194. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  2195. default is =hline=.
  2196. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  2197. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  2198. a source block.
  2199. *** New option in ASCII export
  2200. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  2201. variable to an appropriate integer.
  2202. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  2203. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  2204. blocks. See documentation for details.
  2205. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  2206. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  2207. increased. See manual for details.
  2208. *** Export inline source blocks
  2209. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  2210. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  2211. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  2212. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  2213. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  2214. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  2215. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  2216. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  2217. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  2218. more features. See docstring for details.
  2219. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  2220. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  2221. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  2222. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  2223. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  2224. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  2225. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2226. : This sentence is false.
  2227. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  2228. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  2229. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  2230. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  2231. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  2232. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  2233. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  2234. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  2235. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  2236. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  2237. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  2238. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  2239. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  2240. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  2241. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  2242. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  2243. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  2244. each time.
  2245. *** ASCII plot
  2246. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  2247. for details.
  2248. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  2249. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  2250. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  2251. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  2252. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  2253. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  2254. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  2255. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  2256. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  2257. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  2258. See the docstring for more information.
  2259. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  2260. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  2261. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  2262. property is inherited by children.
  2263. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  2264. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  2265. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  2266. to sort a table.
  2267. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  2268. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  2269. for details.
  2270. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  2271. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  2272. countdown timers.
  2273. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  2274. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  2275. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  2276. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  2277. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  2278. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  2279. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  2280. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  2281. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  2282. manual for details.
  2283. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  2284. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  2285. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  2286. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  2287. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  2288. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  2289. leading spaces within table cells.
  2290. *** New MathJax configuration options
  2291. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  2292. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  2293. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  2294. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  2295. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  2296. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  2297. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  2298. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  2299. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  2300. keywords and properties.
  2301. *** Viewport support in html export
  2302. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  2303. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  2304. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  2305. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  2306. for details.
  2307. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  2308. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  2309. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  2310. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  2311. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  2312. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  2313. added to headline text.
  2314. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  2315. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  2316. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  2317. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  2318. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  2319. =#+TOC= keyword.
  2320. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  2321. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  2322. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  2323. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  2324. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  2325. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  2326. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  2327. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  2328. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  2329. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  2330. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  2331. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  2332. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  2333. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  2334. ** Removed functions
  2335. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  2336. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  2337. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  2338. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  2339. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  2340. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  2341. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  2342. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  2343. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  2344. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  2345. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  2346. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  2347. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  2348. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  2349. optional argument.
  2350. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  2351. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  2352. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  2353. ** Removed options
  2354. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  2355. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  2356. compatibility.
  2357. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  2358. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  2359. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  2360. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  2361. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  2362. document instead.
  2363. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  2364. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  2365. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  2366. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  2367. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  2368. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  2369. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell language is =shell=. To chose
  2370. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  2371. variable locally.
  2372. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  2373. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  2374. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  2375. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  2376. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  2377. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  2378. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  2379. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  2380. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  2381. removed.
  2382. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  2383. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  2384. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  2385. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  2386. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  2387. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  2388. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  2389. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  2390. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  2391. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  2392. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  2393. *** Removed comment-related filters
  2394. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  2395. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  2396. anymore.
  2397. ** Miscellaneous
  2398. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  2399. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  2400. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  2401. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  2402. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  2403. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  2404. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  2405. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  2406. labels colliding.
  2407. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  2408. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  2409. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  2410. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  2411. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  2412. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  2413. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  2414. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  2415. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  2416. particular test failure was introduced.
  2417. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  2418. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  2419. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  2420. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  2421. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  2422. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  2423. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  2424. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  2425. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  2426. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  2427. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  2428. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  2429. This helps spotting wrong links.
  2430. * Version 8.2
  2431. ** Incompatible changes
  2432. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  2433. This may require two changes in user config.
  2434. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  2435. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  2436. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  2437. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  2438. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  2439. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  2440. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  2441. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  2442. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  2443. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  2444. with this:
  2445. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  2446. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  2447. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  2448. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  2449. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  2450. So you need to replace
  2451. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  2452. by
  2453. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  2454. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  2455. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  2456. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  2457. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  2458. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  2459. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  2460. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  2461. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  2462. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  2463. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  2464. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  2465. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  2466. of a symbol.
  2467. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  2468. ** Important bugfixes
  2469. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  2470. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  2471. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  2472. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  2473. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  2474. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  2475. ** New features
  2476. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  2477. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  2478. of the list.
  2479. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  2480. - Support SVG images
  2481. - Support for .pgf files
  2482. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  2483. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  2484. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  2485. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  2486. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  2487. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  2488. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  2489. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  2490. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  2491. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  2492. in a paragraph-like way.
  2493. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2494. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  2495. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  2496. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  2497. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  2498. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  2499. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  2500. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  2501. which can then be passed to export functions like
  2502. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  2503. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  2504. registering a new back-end.
  2505. *** New agenda fortnight view
  2506. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  2507. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  2508. ** New options
  2509. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  2510. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  2511. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  2512. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  2513. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  2514. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  2515. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  2516. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  2517. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  2518. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  2519. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  2520. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  2521. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  2522. of =ox-rss.el=.
  2523. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  2524. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  2525. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  2526. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  2527. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  2528. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  2529. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  2530. If you set this to the following
  2531. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  2532. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  2533. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  2534. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  2535. =C-o= in tables.
  2536. ** New contributed packages
  2537. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  2538. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  2539. software.
  2540. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  2541. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  2542. ** Miscellaneous
  2543. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  2544. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  2545. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  2546. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  2547. the same with example blocks.
  2548. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  2549. release.
  2550. * Version 8.0.1
  2551. ** Installation
  2552. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  2553. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  2554. instructions:
  2555. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  2556. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  2557. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  2558. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  2559. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  2560. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  2561. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  2562. detailed explanations.
  2563. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2564. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2565. function has been called already.
  2566. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2567. installation.
  2568. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2569. ** Incompatible changes
  2570. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2571. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2572. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2573. you will have to update them.
  2574. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2575. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2576. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2577. **** New export engine
  2578. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2579. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2580. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2581. /all/ export back-ends.
  2582. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2583. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2584. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2585. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2586. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2587. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2588. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2589. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2590. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2591. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2592. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2593. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2594. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2595. should now be written
  2596. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2597. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2598. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2599. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2600. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2601. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2602. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2603. now fully removed.
  2604. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2605. remember templates into capture templates.
  2606. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2607. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2608. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2609. **** Note for third-party developers
  2610. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2611. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2612. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2613. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2614. code.
  2615. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2616. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2617. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2618. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2619. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2620. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2621. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2622. user-base.
  2623. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2624. - org-mac-message.el
  2625. - org-mew.el
  2626. - org-wl.el
  2627. - ox-freedmind.el
  2628. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2629. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2630. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2631. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2632. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  2633. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  2634. ** New packages in core
  2635. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  2636. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  2637. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2638. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  2639. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  2640. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  2641. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  2642. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  2643. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  2644. ** New packages in contrib
  2645. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  2646. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  2647. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  2648. code.
  2649. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2650. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  2651. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  2652. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  2653. entries.
  2654. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2655. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  2656. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  2657. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  2658. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  2659. for starting headlines.
  2660. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  2661. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  2662. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  2663. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  2664. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  2665. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  2666. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  2667. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  2668. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  2669. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2670. using =deck.js=.
  2671. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  2672. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2673. using =s5=.
  2674. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2675. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2676. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2677. output.
  2678. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2679. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2680. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2681. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2682. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2683. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2684. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2685. entirely with Org.
  2686. ** New features
  2687. *** Export
  2688. **** New export generic options
  2689. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2690. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2691. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2692. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2693. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2694. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2695. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2696. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2697. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2698. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2699. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2700. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2701. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2702. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2703. contains time-stamps.
  2704. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2705. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2706. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2707. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2708. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2709. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2710. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2711. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2712. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2713. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2714. *** Structure editing
  2715. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2716. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2717. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2718. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2719. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2720. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2721. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2722. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2723. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2724. region.
  2725. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2726. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2727. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2728. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2729. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2730. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2731. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2732. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2733. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2734. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2735. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2736. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2737. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2738. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2739. forward and backward.
  2740. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2741. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2742. Now Org will sort this list
  2743. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2744. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2745. like this:
  2746. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2747. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2748. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2749. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2750. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2751. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2752. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2753. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2754. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2755. local variable.
  2756. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2757. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2758. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2759. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2760. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2761. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2762. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2763. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2764. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2765. option to =nil=.
  2766. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2767. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2768. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2769. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2770. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2771. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2772. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2773. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2774. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2775. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2776. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2777. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2778. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2779. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2780. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2781. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2782. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2783. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2784. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2785. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2786. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2787. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2788. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2789. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2790. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2791. control this globally or per agenda.
  2792. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2793. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2794. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2795. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2796. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2797. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2798. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2799. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2800. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2801. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2802. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2803. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2804. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2805. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2806. (kbd "@")
  2807. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2808. #+END_SRC
  2809. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2810. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2811. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2812. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2813. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2814. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2815. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2816. only show their description, not the full links.
  2817. *** Agenda
  2818. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2819. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2820. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2821. want to build a list of appointments.
  2822. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2823. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2824. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2825. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2826. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2827. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2828. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2829. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2830. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2831. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2832. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2833. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2834. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2835. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2836. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2837. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2838. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2839. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2840. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2841. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2842. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2843. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2844. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2845. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2846. These new options are available:
  2847. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2848. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2849. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2850. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2851. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2852. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2853. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2854. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2855. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2856. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2857. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2858. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2859. non-tagged headlines.
  2860. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2861. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2862. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2863. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2864. that take only =N= minutes.
  2865. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2866. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2867. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2868. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2869. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2870. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2871. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2872. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2873. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2874. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2875. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2876. list of notes.
  2877. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2878. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2879. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2880. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2881. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2882. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2883. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2884. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2885. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2886. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2887. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2888. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2889. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2890. outline tree.
  2891. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2892. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2893. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2894. asks for a confirmation.
  2895. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2896. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2897. the mark of the entry at point.
  2898. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2899. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2900. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2901. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2902. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2903. level 1.
  2904. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2905. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2906. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2907. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2908. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2909. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2910. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2911. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2912. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2913. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2914. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2915. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2916. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2917. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2918. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2919. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2920. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2921. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2922. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2923. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2924. Read the full docstring for details.
  2925. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2926. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2927. : * Task
  2928. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2929. *** Capture
  2930. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2931. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2932. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2933. capture template.
  2934. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2935. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2936. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2937. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2938. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2939. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2940. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2941. check against the name of the buffer.
  2942. *** Tag groups
  2943. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2944. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2945. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2946. of those tags.)
  2947. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2948. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2949. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2950. *** Links
  2951. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2952. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2953. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2954. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2955. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2956. as if the protocol was not known.
  2957. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2958. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2959. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2960. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2961. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2962. active.
  2963. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2964. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2965. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2966. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2967. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2968. When storing a link to a headline like
  2969. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2970. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2971. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2972. there is no description.
  2973. *** Table
  2974. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2975. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2976. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2977. those other formulas.
  2978. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2979. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2980. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2981. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2982. the end.
  2983. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2984. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2985. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2986. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2987. doing computation.
  2988. **** New lookup functions
  2989. There are now three lookup functions:
  2990. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2991. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2992. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2993. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2994. *** Startup keywords
  2995. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2996. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2997. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2998. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2999. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  3000. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  3001. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  3002. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  3003. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  3004. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  3005. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  3006. *** Clocking
  3007. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  3008. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  3009. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  3010. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  3011. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  3012. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  3013. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  3014. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  3015. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  3016. the clocktable.
  3017. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  3018. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  3019. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  3020. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  3021. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  3022. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  3023. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  3024. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  3025. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  3026. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  3027. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  3028. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  3029. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  3030. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  3031. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  3032. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  3033. *** Babel
  3034. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  3035. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  3036. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  3037. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  3038. same target than the block at point.
  3039. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  3040. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  3041. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  3042. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  3043. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  3044. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  3045. time.
  3046. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  3047. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  3048. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  3049. manual for a usage example.
  3050. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  3051. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  3052. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  3053. collecting blocks for tangling.
  3054. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  3055. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  3056. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  3057. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  3058. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  3059. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  3060. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  3061. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  3062. *** Faces
  3063. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  3064. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  3065. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  3066. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  3067. ** Miscellaneous
  3068. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  3069. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  3070. - [[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]]
  3071. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  3072. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  3073. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  3074. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  3075. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  3076. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  3077. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  3078. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  3079. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  3080. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  3081. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  3082. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  3083. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  3084. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  3085. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  3086. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  3087. ** Outside Org
  3088. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  3089. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  3090. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  3091. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  3092. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  3093. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  3094. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  3095. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  3096. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  3097. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  3098. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  3099. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  3100. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  3101. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  3102. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  3103. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  3104. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  3105. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  3106. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  3107. * Version 7.9.3
  3108. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  3109. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  3110. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  3111. agenda views.)
  3112. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  3113. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  3114. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  3115. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  3116. agenda type to this variable.
  3117. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  3118. generation.
  3119. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  3120. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  3121. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  3122. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  3123. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  3124. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  3125. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  3126. invisible) blocked tasks.
  3127. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  3128. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  3129. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  3130. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  3131. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  3132. ** No GPL manual anymore
  3133. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  3134. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  3135. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  3136. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  3137. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  3138. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  3139. in most environments.
  3140. * Version 7.9.2
  3141. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  3142. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  3143. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3144. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  3145. #+END_SRC
  3146. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  3147. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  3148. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  3149. directory.)
  3150. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  3151. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  3152. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  3153. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  3154. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  3155. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |
  3156. | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] |
  3157. | =M-h= | | [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] |

  3162. | | =#= | [[doc::org-toggle-comment][org-toggle-comment]] |
  3163. | | =:= | [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]] |
  3164. | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= |
  3165. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  3166. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  3167. ** New package and Babel language
  3168. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  3169. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  3170. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  3171. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  3172. ** Incompatible changes
  3173. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  3174. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  3175. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  3176. instead.
  3177. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  3178. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  3179. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  3180. ** New features and user-visible changes
  3181. *** Org Element
  3182. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  3183. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  3184. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  3185. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  3186. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  3187. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  3188. See the docstrings for more details.
  3189. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  3190. on =org-element.el=.
  3191. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  3192. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  3193. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  3194. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  3195. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  3196. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  3197. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  3198. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  3199. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  3200. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  3201. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  3202. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  3203. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  3204. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  3205. elements.
  3206. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  3207. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  3208. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  3209. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  3210. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  3211. item. Etc.
  3212. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  3213. the whole list.
  3214. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  3215. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  3216. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  3217. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  3218. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  3219. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  3220. the same level.
  3221. *** Org Agenda
  3222. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  3223. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  3224. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  3225. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  3226. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  3227. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  3228. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  3229. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  3230. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  3231. generating new ones.
  3232. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  3233. agenda buffer.
  3234. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  3235. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3236. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  3237. to this value
  3238. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3239. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  3240. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  3241. #+END_SRC
  3242. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  3243. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  3244. details on how to use this.
  3245. **** Changes in bulk actions
  3246. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  3247. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  3248. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  3249. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  3250. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  3251. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  3252. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  3253. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  3254. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  3255. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  3256. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  3257. =t=.
  3258. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  3259. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  3260. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  3261. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  3262. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  3263. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  3264. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  3265. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  3266. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  3267. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  3268. =f= or =w=).
  3269. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  3270. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  3271. of deadline.
  3272. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  3273. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  3274. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  3275. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  3276. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  3277. several times.
  3278. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  3279. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  3280. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  3281. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  3282. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  3283. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  3284. filters and category filters.
  3285. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  3286. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  3287. configuration.
  3288. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  3289. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  3290. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  3291. point.
  3292. *** Org Links
  3293. **** Inserting links
  3294. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  3295. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  3296. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  3297. want to insert.
  3298. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  3299. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  3300. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  3301. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  3302. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  3303. highlighted.
  3304. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  3305. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  3306. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  3307. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  3308. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  3309. **** New link type =help=
  3310. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  3311. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  3312. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  3313. you go back to the same buffer.
  3314. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  3315. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  3316. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  3317. =org-stored-links=.
  3318. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  3319. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  3320. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  3321. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  3322. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  3323. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  3324. *** Org Editing
  3325. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  3326. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  3327. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  3328. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  3329. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  3330. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  3331. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  3332. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  3333. all headlines in the region.
  3334. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  3335. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  3336. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  3337. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  3338. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  3339. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  3340. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  3341. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  3342. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  3343. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  3344. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  3345. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  3346. undo RET=.
  3347. *** Org Clock
  3348. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  3349. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  3350. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  3351. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  3352. clocked entry, if any.
  3353. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  3354. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  3355. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  3356. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  3357. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  3358. out.
  3359. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  3360. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  3361. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  3362. arguments).
  3363. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  3364. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  3365. in.
  3366. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  3367. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  3368. cells in clockreport.
  3369. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  3370. time cells in clockreport.
  3371. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  3372. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  3373. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3374. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  3375. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3376. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  3377. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  3378. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  3379. space in the frame title.
  3380. *** Org Appearance
  3381. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  3382. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  3383. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  3384. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  3385. don't want to see temporarily.
  3386. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  3387. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  3388. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  3389. There are these new entities:
  3390. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  3391. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  3392. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  3393. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  3394. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  3395. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  3396. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  3397. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  3398. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  3399. The face is back to a normal height.
  3400. *** Org Columns
  3401. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  3402. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  3403. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  3404. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  3405. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  3406. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  3407. block will use its value as the column format.
  3408. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  3409. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  3410. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  3411. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  3412. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  3413. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  3414. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  3415. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  3416. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  3417. You can now use
  3418. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  3419. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  3420. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  3421. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  3422. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  3423. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  3424. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  3425. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  3426. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  3427. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  3428. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  3429. *** Org Capture
  3430. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  3431. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  3432. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  3433. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  3434. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  3435. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  3436. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3437. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  3438. set to this value
  3439. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3440. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  3441. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  3442. #+END_SRC
  3443. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  3444. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  3445. more details on how to use this.
  3446. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  3447. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  3448. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  3449. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  3450. =nil=.
  3451. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  3452. See the manual for more explanations.
  3453. **** More control over empty lines
  3454. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  3455. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  3456. explanations.
  3457. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  3458. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  3459. *** Org Export
  3460. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  3461. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  3462. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  3463. available) to print beautiful tables.
  3464. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  3465. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  3466. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  3467. the table.
  3468. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  3469. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  3470. in the #+DATE option.
  3471. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  3472. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  3473. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  3474. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  3475. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  3476. More languages are always welcome.
  3477. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  3478. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  3479. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  3480. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  3481. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  3482. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  3483. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  3484. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  3485. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  3486. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  3487. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  3488. *** Org Babel
  3489. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  3490. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  3491. supported.
  3492. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  3493. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  3494. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  3495. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  3496. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  3497. It used to exports the results of the code.
  3498. *** Miscellaneous
  3499. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  3500. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  3501. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  3502. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  3503. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  3504. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  3505. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  3506. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  3507. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  3508. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  3509. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  3510. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  3511. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  3512. alarm.
  3513. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  3514. This will increment the effort value.
  3515. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  3516. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  3517. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  3518. attach symbolic links.
  3519. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  3520. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  3521. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  3522. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  3523. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  3524. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  3525. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  3526. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  3527. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  3528. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  3529. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  3530. all top level list items.
  3531. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  3532. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  3533. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  3534. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  3535. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  3536. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  3537. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  3538. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  3539. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  3540. first headline in the region.
  3541. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  3542. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  3543. agenda.
  3544. ** Important bug fixes
  3545. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  3546. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  3547. perform completion with meaningful values.
  3548. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  3549. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  3550. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  3551. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  3552. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  3553. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  3554. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  3555. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  3556. license.
  3557. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  3558. the code and the license to your needs.
  3559. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  3560. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  3561. * Version 7.8.11
  3562. ** Incompatible changes
  3563. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3564. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3565. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3566. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3567. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3568. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3569. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3570. last-minute save.
  3571. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3572. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3573. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3574. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3575. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3576. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3577. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3578. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3579. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3580. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3581. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3582. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3583. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3584. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3585. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3586. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3587. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3588. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3589. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3590. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3591. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3592. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3593. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3594. #+end_src
  3595. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3596. setup./
  3597. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3598. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3599. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3600. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3601. The two new variables are:
  3602. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3603. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3604. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3605. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3606. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3607. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3608. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3609. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3610. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3611. classes.
  3612. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3613. document are:
  3614. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3615. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3616. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3617. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3618. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3619. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3620. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3621. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3622. #+begin_example
  3623. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3624. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3625. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3626. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3627. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3628. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3629. #+end_example
  3630. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3631. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3632. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3633. applies to the following packages:
  3634. - inputenc
  3635. - fontenc
  3636. - fixltx2e
  3637. - graphicx
  3638. - longtable
  3639. - float
  3640. - wrapfig
  3641. - soul
  3642. - t1enc
  3643. - textcomp
  3644. - marvosym
  3645. - wasysym
  3646. - latexsym
  3647. - amssymb
  3648. - hyperref
  3649. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3650. you are using, you can remove it from
  3651. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3652. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3653. properly.
  3654. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3655. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3656. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3657. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3658. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3659. the header.
  3660. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3661. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3662. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3663. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3664. code using it.
  3665. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3666. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3667. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3668. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3669. ** Important new features
  3670. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3671. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3672. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3673. for more information on how to customize it.
  3674. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3675. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3676. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3677. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3678. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3679. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3680. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3681. [[https://orgmode.org/list/C46F10DC-DE51-43D4-AFFE-F71E440D1E1F@gmail.com][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3682. To switch over to the new system:
  3683. 1. Run
  3684. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3685. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3686. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3687. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3688. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3689. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3690. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3691. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3692. customization.
  3693. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3694. with org-remember:
  3695. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3696. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3697. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3698. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3699. with using both system in parallel.
  3700. ** New libraries
  3701. *** New Org libraries
  3702. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3703. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3704. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3705. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3706. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3707. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3708. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3709. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3710. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3711. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3712. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3713. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3714. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3715. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3716. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3717. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3718. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3719. anything.
  3720. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3721. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3722. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3723. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3724. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3725. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3726. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3727. /org-ctags.el/.
  3728. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3729. call function to do something special with text links.
  3730. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3731. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3732. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3733. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3734. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3735. Org-mode manual:
  3736. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3737. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3738. *** New Babel libraries
  3739. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3740. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3741. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3742. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3743. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3744. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3745. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3746. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3747. *** Hyperlinks
  3748. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3749. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3750. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3751. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3752. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3753. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3754. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3755. The key new functions are
  3756. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3757. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3758. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3759. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3760. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3761. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3762. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3763. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3764. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3765. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3766. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3767. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3768. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3769. **** Modified link escaping
  3770. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[https://orgmode.org/list/87k4gysacq.wl%dmaus@ictsoc.de][his message]]:
  3771. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3772. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3773. : in link target or description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3774. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3775. : link).
  3776. :
  3777. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3778. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3779. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3780. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3781. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3782. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3783. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3784. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3785. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3786. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3787. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3788. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3789. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3790. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3791. string to be executed.
  3792. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3793. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3794. to org-file-apps:
  3795. #+begin_example
  3796. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3797. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3798. #+end_example
  3799. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3800. *** Dates and time
  3801. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3802. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3803. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3804. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3805. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3806. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3807. will work on the current entry.
  3808. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3809. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3810. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3811. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3812. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3813. #+begin_example
  3814. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3815. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3816. #+end_example
  3817. *** Agenda
  3818. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3819. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3820. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3821. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3822. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3823. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3824. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3825. entries using a function.
  3826. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3827. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3828. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3829. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3830. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3831. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3832. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3833. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3834. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3835. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3836. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3837. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3838. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3839. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3840. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3841. *** Exporting
  3842. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3843. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3844. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3845. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3846. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3847. %-sequences.
  3848. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3849. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3850. formatting string will insert a string.
  3851. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3852. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3853. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3854. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3855. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3856. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3857. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3858. C-e u=, respectively.
  3859. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3860. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3861. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3862. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3863. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3864. your preference.
  3865. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3866. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3867. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3868. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3869. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3870. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3871. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3872. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3873. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3874. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3875. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3876. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3877. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3878. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3879. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3880. individual could.
  3881. *** Refiling
  3882. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3883. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3884. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3885. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3886. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3887. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3888. **** New logging support for refiling
  3889. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3890. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3891. =org-log-refile=.
  3892. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3893. *** Completion
  3894. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3895. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3896. *** Tables
  3897. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3898. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3899. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3900. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3901. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3902. the displayed in the buffer.
  3903. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3904. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3905. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3906. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3907. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3908. |--------+--------+---------|
  3909. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3910. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3911. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3912. optional.
  3913. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3914. feedback on this.
  3915. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3916. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3917. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3918. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3919. : things like
  3920. :
  3921. : @3=
  3922. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3923. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3924. :
  3925. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3926. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3927. : table.
  3928. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3929. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3930. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3931. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3932. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3933. *** Lists
  3934. **** Improved handling of lists
  3935. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3936. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3937. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3938. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3939. indented than it.
  3940. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3941. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3942. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3943. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3944. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3945. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3946. `org-list-export-context'.
  3947. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3948. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3949. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3950. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3951. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3952. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3953. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3954. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3955. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3956. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3957. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3958. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3959. *** Inline display of linked images
  3960. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3961. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3962. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3963. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3964. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3965. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3966. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3967. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3968. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3969. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3970. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3971. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3972. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3973. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3974. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3975. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3976. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3977. tangling
  3978. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3979. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3980. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3981. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3982. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3983. properties or in tables.
  3984. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3985. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3986. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3987. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3988. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3989. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3990. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3991. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3992. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3993. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3994. request by Scott Otterson.
  3995. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3996. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3997. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3998. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3999. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  4000. superscripts, see the variable
  4001. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  4002. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  4003. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  4004. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  4005. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  4006. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  4007. following new faces:
  4008. =org-document-title=
  4009. =org-document-info=
  4010. =org-document-info-keyword=
  4011. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  4012. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  4013. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  4014. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  4015. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  4016. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  4017. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  4018. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  4019. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  4020. property is affected by this setting.
  4021. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  4022. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  4023. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  4024. Requested by Michael Brand.
  4025. **** Better level cycling function
  4026. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  4027. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  4028. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  4029. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  4030. **** Adaptive filling
  4031. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  4032. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  4033. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  4034. comments to be filled correctly.
  4035. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  4036. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  4037. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  4038. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  4039. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  4040. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  4041. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  4042. *** Clocking
  4043. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  4044. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  4045. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  4046. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  4047. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  4048. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  4049. **** Localized clock tables
  4050. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  4051. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  4052. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  4053. available translated strings.
  4054. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  4055. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  4056. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  4057. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  4058. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  4059. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  4060. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  4061. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  4062. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  4063. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  4064. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  4065. =nil=.
  4066. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  4067. *** Misc
  4068. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  4069. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  4070. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  4071. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  4072. **** A property value of =nil= now means to unset a property
  4073. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  4074. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  4075. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  4076. property) back.
  4077. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  4078. change.
  4079. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  4080. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  4081. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  4082. #+begin_example
  4083. org-table-get
  4084. org-table-put
  4085. org-table-current-line
  4086. org-table-goto-line
  4087. #+end_example
  4088. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  4089. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  4090. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  4091. node.
  4092. This was requested by Tom.
  4093. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  4094. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  4095. example by viewing from the agenda.
  4096. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
