  8. * Version 9.3
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  11. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  12. bracket links.
  13. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  14. to the following rules, applied in order:
  15. 1. All consecutive =\= characters at the end of the link must be
  16. escaped;
  17. 2. Any =]= character at the very end of the link must be escaped;
  18. 3. All consecutive =\= characters preceding =][= or =]]= patterns must
  19. be escaped;
  20. 4. Any =]= character followed by either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  21. 5. Others =]= and =\= characters need not be escaped.
  22. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  23. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  24. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  25. syntax:
  26. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  27. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  28. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  29. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  30. is non-nil."
  31. (interactive "P")
  32. (org-with-point-at 1
  33. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  34. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  35. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  36. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  37. (= (match-beginning 0)
  38. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  39. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  40. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  41. (uri-end (save-excursion
  42. (goto-char uri-start)
  43. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  44. (match-beginning 0)))
  45. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  46. (when (or no-query
  47. (y-or-n-p
  48. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  49. uri)))
  50. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  51. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  52. #+end_src
  53. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  54. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  55. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  56. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  57. group 3.
  58. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  59. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  60. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  61. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  62. behavior will not happend automatically.
  63. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  64. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  65. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  66. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  67. it is.
  68. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  69. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  70. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  71. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  72. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  73. You can get the old behaviour back with the following:
  74. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  75. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  76. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  77. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  78. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  79. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  80. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  81. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  82. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  83. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  84. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  85. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  86. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  87. since now it's implicitly always true.
  88. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  89. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  90. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  91. auto-commit attachments to git:
  92. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  93. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  94. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  95. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  96. ** New features
  97. *** New option to handle schedules and deadlines in iCalendar export
  98. Export ignore done tasks with a deadline when
  99. ~org-icalendar-use-deadline~ contains ~event-if-todo-not-done~.
  100. Likewise, scheduled done tasks are also ignored when
  101. ~org-icalendar-use-scheduled~ contains the same symbol.
  102. *** Add split-window-right option for src block edit window placement
  103. Given the increasing popularity of wide screen monitors, splitting
  104. horizontally may make more sense than splitting vertically. An
  105. option, ~split-window-right~, to request horizontal splitting has been
  106. added to ~org-src-window-setup~.
  107. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  108. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  109. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  110. and extra options have been added as well.
  111. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  112. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  113. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  114. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  115. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  116. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  117. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  118. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  119. account).
  120. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  121. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  122. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  123. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  124. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favour of the shorter
  125. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  126. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  127. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  128. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  129. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  130. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  131. was the behaviour before this change.
  132. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  133. precedence and will be used.
  134. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  135. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  136. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  137. your own function and use it is ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~ if
  138. you want to customize the ID-based folder structure.
  139. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  140. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  141. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  142. removed.
  143. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  144. (defun org-update-attach-properties ()
  145. "Change properties for Org-Attach."
  146. (interactive)
  147. (org-with-point-at 1
  148. (while (outline-next-heading)
  149. (let ((DIR (org--property-local-values "ATTACH_DIR" nil)))
  150. (when DIR
  151. (org-set-property "DIR" (car DIR))
  152. (org-delete-property "ATTACH_DIR"))))
  153. (org-delete-property-globally "ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT")))
  154. #+end_src
  155. For those who hate breaking changes, even though the changes are made
  156. to clean things up; fear not. ATTACH_DIR will still continue to work.
  157. It's just not documented any longer. When you get the chance, run the
  158. code above to clean things up anyways!
  159. **** New hooks
  160. Two hooks are added to org-attach:
  161. - org-attach-after-change-hook
  162. - org-attach-open-hook
  163. They are added mostly for internal restructuring purposes, but can
  164. ofc. be used for other things as well.
  165. *** New link-type: Attachment
  166. Attachment-links are now first-class citizens. They mimick file-links
  167. in everything they do but use the existing attachment-folder as a base
  168. when expanding the links. Both =DIR= and =ID= properties are used to
  169. try to resolve the links, in exactly the same way as Org-Attach uses
  170. those properties.
  171. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  172. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  173. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  174. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  175. numbered list to a lettered list.
  176. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  177. You can add new dynamic blocks with function
  178. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All such dynamic blocks can be used by
  179. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  180. *** Babel
  181. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  182. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  183. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  184. parameter.
  185. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  186. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  187. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  188. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  189. changes in the buffer.
  190. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  191. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  192. a headline.
  193. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  194. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  195. ~:caption~.
  196. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  197. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  198. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  199. attachement directory.
  200. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  201. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  202. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  203. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  204. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  205. interpreted as publicly visable, accessible to a specific group, and
  206. private respectively.
  207. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  208. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  209. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  210. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  211. system than the main Org document. For example:
  212. #+begin_example
  213. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  214. #+end_example
  215. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  216. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  217. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  218. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  219. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  220. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  221. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  222. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  223. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  224. LaTeX font locking.
  225. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learnt to shift backward in time
  226. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  227. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  228. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  229. days in the past.
  230. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  231. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  232. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  233. This is a function for convenience.
  234. *** New paramater for SQL Babel blocks: ~:dbconnection~
  235. The new paramater ~:dbconnection~ allows to specify a connection name
  236. in a SQL block header: this name is used to look up connection
  237. parameters in ~sql-connection-alist~.
  238. *** New =:scale= attribute supported by LaTeX exporters
  239. The builtin "latex" exporters now accept and use a =:scale= attribute,
  240. which scales an image by a given factor.
  241. This attribute is wrapped adound the =scale= parameter of LaTeX's
  242. =\includegraphics= (bitmap images) or a TiKZ's =\scalebox=.
  243. Therefore, its value should be some string palatable to LaTeX as
  244. a positive float Its default value is an empty string (i.e. disabled).
  245. This attribute overrides the =:width= and =:height= attributes.
  246. #+begin_example
  247. ,#+name: Beastie
  248. ,#+caption: I think I saw this curious horse already, but where ?
  249. ,#+LATEX_ATTR: :scale 2
  250. [[https://orgmode.org/img/org-mode-unicorn-logo.png]]
  251. #+end_example
  252. *** Allow specifying the target for a table of contents
  253. The =+TOC= keyword now accepts a =:target:= attribute that specifies
  254. the headline to use for making the table of contents.
  255. #+begin_example
  256. ,* Target
  257. :PROPERTIES:
  258. :CUSTOM_ID: TargetSection
  259. :END:
  260. ,** Heading A
  261. ,** Heading B
  262. ,* Another section
  263. ,#+TOC: headlines 1 :target "#TargetSection"
  264. #+end_example
  265. ** New functions
  266. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  267. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  268. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  269. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  270. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  271. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  272. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  273. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  274. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  275. ** Removed functions and variables
  276. *** Removed Org Drill
  277. You can install it back from MELPA.
  278. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  279. *** ~org-capture-insert-template-here~
  280. *** ~org-attach-directory~
  281. It has been deprecated in favour of ~org-attach-id-dir~ which is less
  282. ambigous given the restructured org-attach.
  283. *** ~org-enable-fixed-width-editor~
  284. This variable was not used throught the code base.
  285. ** Miscellaneous
  286. *** Change signature for ~org-list-to-subtree~
  287. The function now accepts the level of the subtree as an optional
  288. argument. It no longer deduces it from the current level.
  289. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  290. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  291. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  292. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  293. *** ~org-table-copy-down~ supports patterns
  294. When ~org-table-copy-increment~ is non-nil, it is now possible to
  295. increment fields like =A1=, or =0A=, i.e., any string prefixed or
  296. suffixed with a whole number.
  297. *** No more special indentation for description items
  298. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  299. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  300. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  301. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  302. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  303. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  304. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  305. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  306. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  307. interface.
  308. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  309. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  310. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  311. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  312. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  313. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  314. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  315. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  316. *** New variable ~org-attach-commands~
  317. This variable makes it possible to customize the list of commands for
  318. the attachment dispatcher.
  319. *** New ID method based on timestamp
  320. If one chooses, it is now possible to create ID's based on timestamp
  321. (ISO8601) instead of UUID by changing org-id-method to ts.
  322. *** New customization: ~org-id-locations-relative~
  323. New customization to make the persisting of org-id-locations between
  324. sessions to store links to files as relative instead of absolute. The
  325. links will be stored as relative to the path of org-id-locations-file.
  326. *** ~org-ctrl-c-tab~ is functional before the first headline
  327. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  328. Also fold everything below the chosen level. Former behavior was to
  329. leave unfolded subtrees unfolded.
  330. *** ~org-kill-note-or-show-branches~ is functional before the first headline
  331. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  332. *** Respect narrowing when agenda command is restricted to buffer
  333. * Version 9.2
  334. ** Incompatible changes
  335. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  336. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  337. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  338. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  339. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  340. to use orgalist.el, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  341. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  342. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  343. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  344. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  345. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  346. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  347. you probably need to udpate it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  348. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  349. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  350. : (require 'org-tempo)
  351. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  352. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  353. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  354. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  355. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  356. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  357. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  358. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  359. unique, Noweb reference.
  360. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  361. ,#+NAME: foo
  362. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  363. 1
  364. ,#+END_SRC
  365. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  366. 2
  367. ,#+END_SRC
  368. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  369. <<foo>>
  370. ,#+END_SRC
  371. #+END_SRC
  372. should become
  373. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  374. ,#+NAME: foo
  375. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  376. 1
  377. ,#+END_SRC
  378. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  379. 2
  380. ,#+END_SRC
  381. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  382. <<bar>>
  383. ,#+END_SRC
  384. #+END_SRC
  385. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  386. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  387. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  388. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  389. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  390. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  391. :
  392. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  393. Check the full docstring for more.
  394. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  395. Here is the new docstring:
  396. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  397. :
  398. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  399. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  400. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  401. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  402. : variables is set.
  403. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  404. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  405. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  406. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  407. examples:
  408. #+begin_example
  409. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  410. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  411. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  412. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  413. #+end_example
  414. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  415. #+begin_example
  416. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  417. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  418. #+end_example
  419. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  420. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  421. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  422. aligning.
  423. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  424. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  425. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  426. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  427. #+END_EXAMPLE
  428. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  429. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  430. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  431. local tags. In order to get the old behaviour back, you can use:
  432. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  433. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  434. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  435. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  436. code-point.
  437. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  438. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  439. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  440. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  441. dedicated column.
  442. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  443. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  444. ** New features
  445. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  446. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  447. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  448. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  449. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  450. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  451. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  452. #+begin_src clojure :session
  453. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  454. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  455. #+end_src
  456. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  457. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  458. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  459. #+begin_example
  460. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  461. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  462. ,#+end_src
  463. ,#+results:
  464. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  465. #+end_example
  466. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  467. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  468. console.log("stardiviner")
  469. #+end_src
  470. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  471. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  472. console.log("stardiviner")
  473. #+end_src
  474. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  475. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  476. console.log("stardiviner")
  477. #+end_src
  478. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  479. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  480. add a label to the rendered equation.
  481. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  482. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  483. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  484. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  485. manual for details.
  486. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  487. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  488. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  489. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  490. ,* Top [1/2]
  491. ,** DONE Completed
  492. ,** TODO Working
  493. #+END_SRC
  494. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  495. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  496. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  497. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  498. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  499. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  500. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  501. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  502. its previous state.
  503. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  504. size.
  505. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  506. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  507. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  508. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  509. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  510. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  511. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  512. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  513. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  514. prop
  515. "0")))
  516. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  517. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  518. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  519. #+END_SRC
  520. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  521. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  522. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  523. ,* All shipments
  524. ,** Shipment 1
  525. :PROPERTIES:
  526. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  527. :Bananas: 4
  528. :END:
  529. ,** Shipment 2
  530. :PROPERTIES:
  531. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  532. :BANANAS: 7
  533. :END:
  534. #+END_SRC
  535. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  536. you should expect to see something like:
  537. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  538. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  539. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  540. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  541. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  542. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  543. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  544. #+END_EXAMPLE
  545. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  546. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  547. matcher.
  548. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  549. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  550. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  551. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  552. parameters. See example bellow.
  553. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  554. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  555. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  556. select sysdate from dual;
  557. ,#+END_SRC
  558. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  559. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  560. select sysdate from dual;
  561. ,#+END_SRC
  562. #+END_SRC
  563. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  564. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  565. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  566. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  567. remove it.
  568. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  569. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  570. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  571. ** New commands and functions
  572. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  573. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  574. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  575. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  576. See docstring for details.
  577. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  578. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  579. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  580. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  581. See docstring for details.
  582. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  583. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  584. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  585. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  586. will go back to the widen state.
  587. *** ~org-browse-news~
  588. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read informations
  589. about the last major release.
  590. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  591. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  592. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  593. on the context.
  594. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  595. ** Removed commands and functions
  596. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  597. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  598. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  599. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  600. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  601. It was not used throughout the code base.
  602. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  603. It was not used throughout code base.
  604. *** ~org-context-p~
  605. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  606. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  607. It is no longer used in the code base.
  608. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  609. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  610. ** Removed options
  611. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  612. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  613. ** Miscellaneous
  614. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  615. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  616. handled specially by default.
  617. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  618. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  619. handled specially by default.
  620. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  621. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  622. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  623. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  624. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  625. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  626. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  627. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  628. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  629. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  630. reciprocal.
  631. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  632. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  633. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  634. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  635. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  636. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  637. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  638. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  639. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  640. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  641. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  642. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  643. rules instead of by code-point.
  644. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  645. * Version 9.1
  646. ** Incompatible changes
  647. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  648. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  649. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  650. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  651. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  652. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  653. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  654. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  655. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  656. accordingly.
  657. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  658. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  659. is to turn, e.g.,
  660. : (file (sexp))
  661. into
  662. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  663. *** Deleted contributed packages
  664. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  665. from the contrib/ directory.
  666. You can now find them here :
  667. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  668. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  669. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  670. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  671. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  672. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  673. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  674. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  675. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  676. changes to site-map generation.
  677. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  678. to the following
  679. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  680. (lambda (entry style project)
  681. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  682. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  683. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  684. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  685. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  686. (t entry)))
  687. #+END_SRC
  688. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  689. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  690. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  691. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  692. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  693. list as their first argument.
  694. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  695. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  696. See docstring for details.
  697. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  698. See docstring for changes.
  699. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  700. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  701. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  702. details.
  703. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  704. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  705. keywords.
  706. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  707. It used to return nil.
  708. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  709. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  710. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  711. MELPA repository.
  712. ** New features
  713. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  714. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  715. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  716. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  717. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  718. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  719. specified as in "Europe/London".
  720. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  721. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  722. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  723. directory to old, ID based one.
  724. *** New Org duration library
  725. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  726. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  727. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  728. docstrings.
  729. *** Agenda
  730. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  731. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  732. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  733. See docstring for details.
  734. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  735. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  736. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  737. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  738. the default setting.
  739. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  740. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  741. directories in published site-maps.
  742. *** Babel
  743. **** Scheme: support for tables
  744. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  745. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  746. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  747. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  748. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  749. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  750. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  751. with the content to be added.
  752. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  753. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  754. before this let form.
  755. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  756. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  757. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  758. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  759. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  760. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  761. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  762. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  763. window/buffer.
  764. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  765. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  766. option in the code block's header like this:
  767. #+begin_example
  768. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  769. (dotimes [n 10]
  770. (println n ".")
  771. (Thread/sleep 500))
  772. ,#+END_SRC
  773. #+end_example
  774. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  775. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  776. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  777. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  778. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  779. =#+RESULTS= section.
  780. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  781. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  782. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  783. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  784. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  785. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  786. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  787. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  788. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  789. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  790. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  791. results in a beamer presentation.
  792. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  793. [[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
  794. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  795. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  796. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  797. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  798. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  799. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  800. #+begin_example
  801. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  802. Select * From Users
  803. Where clue > 0
  804. ,#+END_SRC
  805. #+end_example
  806. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  807. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  808. against HP Vertica.
  809. 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]]
  810. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  811. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  812. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  813. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  814. ,#+END_SRC
  815. #+END_EXAMPLE
  816. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  817. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  818. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  819. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  820. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  821. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  822. using ~:namespaces~:
  823. #+begin_example
  824. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  825. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  826. ,#+END_SRC
  827. #+end_example
  828. **** Support for Vala language
  829. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  830. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  831. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  832. 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~]]
  833. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  834. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  835. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  836. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  837. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  838. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  839. *** Export
  840. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  841. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  842. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  843. contents, are now supported.
  844. **** Add Slovenian translations
  845. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  846. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  847. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  848. details.
  849. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  850. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  851. manual for details.
  852. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  853. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  854. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  855. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  856. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  857. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  858. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  859. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  860. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  861. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  862. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  863. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  864. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  865. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  866. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  867. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  868. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  869. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  870. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  871. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  872. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  873. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  874. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  875. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  876. to the document.
  877. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  878. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  879. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  880. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  881. ~uniquify.el~.
  882. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  883. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  884. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  885. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  886. to ~org-file-contents~.
  887. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  888. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  889. that file cache.
  890. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  891. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  892. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  893. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  894. ** Removed functions
  895. *** Org Timeline
  896. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  897. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  898. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  899. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  900. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  901. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  902. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  903. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  904. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  905. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  906. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  907. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  908. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  909. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  910. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  911. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  912. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  913. ** Removed options
  914. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  915. For an equivalent to a ~nil~ value, set
  916. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  917. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to ~t~.
  918. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  919. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  920. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  921. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  922. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  923. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  924. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  925. equivalent to the removed format string.
  926. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  927. Setting it to a ~nil~ value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  928. keys).
  929. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  930. The variable is now a boolean.
  931. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  932. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  933. ** New functions
  934. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  935. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  936. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  937. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  938. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  939. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  940. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  941. ** Miscellaneous
  942. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  943. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  944. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  945. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  946. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  947. *** Allow multiple columns view
  948. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  949. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  950. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  951. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  952. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  953. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  954. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  955. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  956. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  957. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  958. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  959. used to describe the time span.
  960. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  961. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  962. far away in the future.
  963. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  964. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  965. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  966. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  967. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  968. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  969. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  970. See docstring for details.
  971. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  972. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  973. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  974. is now obsolete.
  975. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  976. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  977. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  978. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  979. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  980. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  981. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  982. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  983. suitable as a default value.
  984. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  985. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  986. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  987. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are
  988. covered by rewrite rules.
  989. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  990. * Version 9.0
  991. ** Incompatible changes
  992. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  993. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  994. above is suggested.
  995. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  996. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  997. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact

  999. *** New syntax for export blocks
  1000. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  1001. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  1002. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1003. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  1004. ...
  1005. ,#+END_EXPORT
  1006. #+END_SRC
  1007. instead of
  1008. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1009. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  1010. ...
  1011. ,#+END_backend
  1012. #+END_SRC
  1013. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  1014. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1015. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  1016. #+END_SRC
  1017. becomes
  1018. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1019. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  1020. #+END_SRC
  1021. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  1022. using previous syntax:
  1023. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1024. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  1025. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1026. (interactive)
  1027. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1028. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1029. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1030. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1031. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1032. t)))
  1033. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1034. (goto-char (point-min))
  1035. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1036. (save-excursion
  1037. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  1038. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1039. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1040. (save-excursion
  1041. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1042. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1043. (forward-char)
  1044. (insert "EXPORT")
  1045. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1046. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1047. (let ((include-re
  1048. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1049. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1050. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1051. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1052. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1053. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1054. #+END_SRC
  1055. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1056. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1057. removed.
  1058. *** Footnotes
  1059. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1060. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1061. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1062. constructs are now unsupported.
  1063. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1064. =[fn:N]=.
  1065. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1066. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1067. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1068. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1069. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1070. exists.
  1071. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1072. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1073. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1074. is straightforward. For example
  1075. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1076. becomes
  1077. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1078. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1079. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1080. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1081. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1082. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1083. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1084. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1085. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1086. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1087. such, the following
  1088. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1089. ,* Headline
  1090. :PROPERTIES:
  1091. :exports: code
  1092. :var: a=1 b=2
  1093. :var+: c=3
  1094. :END:
  1095. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1096. should be written instead
  1097. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1098. ,* Headline
  1099. :PROPERTIES:
  1100. :header-args: :exports code
  1101. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1102. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1103. :END:
  1104. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1105. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1106. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1107. ** New features
  1108. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1109. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1110. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1111. #+begin_example
  1112. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1113. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1114. #+end_example
  1115. Old-style links such as
  1116. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1117. continue to be supported.
  1118. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1119. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1120. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1121. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1122. lists.
  1123. *** New Org linter library
  1124. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1125. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1126. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1127. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1128. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1129. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1130. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1131. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1132. *** Export
  1133. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1134. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1135. details.
  1136. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1137. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1138. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1139. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1140. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1141. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1142. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1143. for more details.
  1144. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1145. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1146. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1147. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1148. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1149. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1150. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1151. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1152. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1153. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1154. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1155. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1156. used.
  1157. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1158. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1159. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1160. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1161. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1162. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1163. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1164. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1165. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1166. (message "This is line 21")
  1167. ,#+END_SRC
  1168. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1169. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1170. (message "This is line 32")
  1171. ,#+END_SRC
  1172. #+END_SRC
  1173. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1174. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1175. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1176. export.
  1177. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1178. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1179. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1180. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1181. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1182. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1183. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1184. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1185. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1186. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1187. *** Babel
  1188. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1189. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1190. **** Support for Lua language
  1191. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1192. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1193. **** Support for Stan language
  1194. New ob-stan.el library.
  1195. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1196. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1197. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1198. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1199. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1200. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1201. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1202. that does not end in ".stan".
  1203. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1204. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1205. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1206. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1207. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1208. mandatory):
  1209. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1210. :engine oracle
  1211. :dbhost <host.com>
  1212. :dbport <1521>
  1213. :dbuser <username>
  1214. :database <database>
  1215. :dbpassword <secret>
  1216. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1217. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1218. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1219. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1220. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1221. like this:
  1222. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1223. :engine mssql
  1224. :dbhost <host.com>
  1225. :dbuser <username>
  1226. :dbpassword <secret>
  1227. :database <database>
  1228. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1229. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1230. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1231. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1232. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1233. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1234. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1235. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1236. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1237. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1238. include:
  1239. All Diagrams:
  1240. - png ::
  1241. - svg ::
  1242. - eps ::
  1243. - pdf ::
  1244. - vdx ::
  1245. - txt :: ASCII art
  1246. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1247. Class Diagrams:
  1248. - xmi ::
  1249. - html ::
  1250. State Diagrams:
  1251. - scxml ::
  1252. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1253. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1254. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1255. @startuml
  1256. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1257. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1258. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1259. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1260. @enduml
  1261. #+end_src
  1262. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1263. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1264. details and setup information.
  1265. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1266. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1267. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1268. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1269. for details.
  1270. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1271. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1272. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1273. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1274. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1275. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1276. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1277. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1278. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1279. by ISO week and not by month.
  1280. For example:
  1281. : * 2015
  1282. : ** 2015-W35
  1283. : ** 2015-W36
  1284. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1285. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1286. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1287. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1288. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1289. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1290. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1291. *** Columns view
  1292. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1293. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1294. buffer unconditionally.
  1295. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1296. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1297. **** Allow custom summaries
  1298. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1299. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1300. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1301. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1302. types.
  1303. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1304. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1305. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1306. a git repository.
  1307. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1308. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1309. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1310. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1311. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1312. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1313. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1314. first footnote.
  1315. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1316. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1317. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1318. the manual for details.
  1319. *** Links are now customizable
  1320. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1321. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1322. ** New functions
  1323. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1324. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1325. *** ~org-show-children~
  1326. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1327. ** Removed functions
  1328. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1329. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1330. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1331. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1332. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1333. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1334. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1335. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1336. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1337. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1338. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1339. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1340. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1341. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1342. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1343. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1344. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1345. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1346. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1347. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1348. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1349. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1350. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1351. The affected functions are:
  1352. - ~org-count~
  1353. - ~org-remove-if~
  1354. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1355. - ~org-reduce~
  1356. - ~org-every~
  1357. - ~org-some~
  1358. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1359. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1360. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1361. ** Removed options
  1362. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1363. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1364. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1365. let those libraries operate.
  1366. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1367. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1368. plain list.
  1369. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1370. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1371. ** Miscellaneous
  1372. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1373. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1374. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1375. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1376. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1377. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1378. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1379. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1380. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1381. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1382. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1383. Org files.
  1384. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1385. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1386. indentation.
  1387. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1388. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1389. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1390. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1391. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1392. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1393. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1394. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1395. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1396. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1397. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1398. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1399. to the article's original group.
  1400. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1401. The calling convention has changed.
  1402. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1403. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1404. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1405. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1406. called with 6 parameters.
  1407. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1408. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1409. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1410. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1411. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1412. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1413. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1414. the end of the string.
  1415. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1416. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1417. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1418. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1419. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1420. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1421. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1422. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1423. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1424. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1425. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1426. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1427. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1428. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1429. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1430. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1431. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1432. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1433. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1434. future.)
  1435. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1436. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1437. modified anyway.
  1438. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1439. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1440. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1441. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1442. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1443. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1444. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1445. indication letter was solely J.
  1446. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1447. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1448. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1449. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1450. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1451. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1452. a ~defvar~.
  1453. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1454. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1455. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1456. * Version 8.3
  1457. ** Incompatible changes
  1458. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1459. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1460. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1461. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1462. logged before the property drawer.
  1463. The following function will repair them:
  1464. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1465. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1466. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1467. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1468. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1469. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1470. (goto-char (point-min))
  1471. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1472. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1473. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1474. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1475. (org-map-entries
  1476. (lambda ()
  1477. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1478. (save-excursion
  1479. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1480. (forward-line)
  1481. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1482. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1483. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1484. (save-excursion
  1485. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1486. (eq (org-element-type
  1487. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1488. 'drawer))))
  1489. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1490. (match-beginning 0)
  1491. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1492. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1493. #+END_SRC
  1494. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1495. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1496. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1497. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1498. into account when exporting.
  1499. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1500. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1501. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1502. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1503. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1504. 5.14 (2008).
  1505. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1506. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1507. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1508. ,* Headline
  1509. :PROPERTIES:
  1510. :CATEGORY: some category
  1511. :END:
  1512. #+END_SRC
  1513. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1514. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1515. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1516. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1517. see.
  1518. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1519. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1520. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1521. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1522. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1523. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1524. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1525. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1526. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1527. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1528. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1529. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1530. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1531. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1532. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1533. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1534. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1535. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1536. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1537. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1538. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1539. *** Functions signature changes
  1540. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1541. docstring for more information.
  1542. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1543. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1544. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1545. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1546. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1547. - ~org-link-search~
  1548. ** New features
  1549. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1550. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1551. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1552. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1553. :lexical yes
  1554. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1555. :lexical no
  1556. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1557. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1558. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1559. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1560. without changing the headline.
  1561. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1562. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  1563. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1564. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1565. The following in-buffer definition:
  1566. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1567. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1568. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1569. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1570. #+END_SRC
  1571. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1572. - Group
  1573. - SubOne
  1574. - SubOne1
  1575. - SubOne2
  1576. - SubTwo
  1577. - SubTwo1
  1578. - SubTwo2
  1579. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1580. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1581. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1582. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1583. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1584. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1585. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1586. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1587. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1588. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1589. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1590. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1591. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1592. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1593. #+END_SRC
  1594. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1595. grouptags; { }.
  1596. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1597. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1598. "sub-tags".
  1599. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1600. Example use:
  1601. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1602. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1603. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1604. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1605. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1606. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1607. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1608. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1609. levels anymore.
  1610. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1611. is also used as a filter.
  1612. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1613. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1614. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1615. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1616. exclude.
  1617. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1618. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1619. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1620. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1621. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1622. New ob-processing.el library.
  1623. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1624. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1625. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1626. Check the documentation for more details.
  1627. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1628. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1629. The new behavior is the following:
  1630. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1631. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1632. buffer;
  1633. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1634. subtree;
  1635. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1636. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1637. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1638. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1639. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1640. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1641. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1642. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1643. more information.
  1644. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1645. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1646. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1647. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1648. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1649. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1650. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1651. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1652. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1653. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1654. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1655. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1656. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1657. default is =hline=.
  1658. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1659. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1660. a source block.
  1661. *** New option in ASCII export
  1662. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1663. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1664. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1665. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1666. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1667. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1668. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1669. increased. See manual for details.
  1670. *** Export inline source blocks
  1671. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1672. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1673. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  1674. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  1675. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  1676. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  1677. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  1678. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  1679. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  1680. more features. See docstring for details.
  1681. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  1682. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  1683. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  1684. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  1685. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  1686. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  1687. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1688. : This sentence is false.
  1689. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  1690. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  1691. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  1692. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  1693. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  1694. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  1695. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  1696. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  1697. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  1698. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  1699. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  1700. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  1701. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  1702. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  1703. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  1704. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  1705. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  1706. each time.
  1707. *** ASCII plot
  1708. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  1709. for details.
  1710. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  1711. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  1712. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  1713. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  1714. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  1715. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  1716. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  1717. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  1718. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  1719. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1720. See the docstring for more information.
  1721. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  1722. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  1723. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  1724. property is inherited by children.
  1725. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  1726. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  1727. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  1728. to sort a table.
  1729. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  1730. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  1731. for details.
  1732. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  1733. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  1734. countdown timers.
  1735. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  1736. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  1737. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  1738. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  1739. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  1740. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  1741. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  1742. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  1743. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  1744. manual for details.
  1745. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  1746. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  1747. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  1748. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  1749. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  1750. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  1751. leading spaces within table cells.
  1752. *** New MathJax configuration options
  1753. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  1754. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  1755. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  1756. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  1757. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  1758. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  1759. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  1760. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  1761. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  1762. keywords and properties.
  1763. *** Viewport support in html export
  1764. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  1765. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  1766. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  1767. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  1768. for details.
  1769. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  1770. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  1771. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  1772. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  1773. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  1774. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  1775. added to headline text.
  1776. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  1777. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  1778. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  1779. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  1780. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  1781. =#+TOC= keyword.
  1782. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  1783. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  1784. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  1785. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  1786. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  1787. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  1788. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  1789. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  1790. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  1791. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  1792. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  1793. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  1794. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  1795. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  1796. ** Removed functions
  1797. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  1798. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  1799. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  1800. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  1801. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  1802. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  1803. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  1804. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  1805. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  1806. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  1807. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  1808. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  1809. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  1810. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  1811. optional argument.
  1812. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  1813. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  1814. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  1815. ** Removed options
  1816. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  1817. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  1818. compatibility.
  1819. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  1820. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  1821. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  1822. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  1823. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  1824. document instead.
  1825. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  1826. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  1827. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  1828. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  1829. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  1830. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  1831. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  1832. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  1833. variable locally.
  1834. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  1835. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  1836. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  1837. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  1838. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  1839. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  1840. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  1841. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  1842. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  1843. removed.
  1844. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  1845. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  1846. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  1847. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  1848. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  1849. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  1850. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  1851. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  1852. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  1853. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  1854. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  1855. *** Removed comment-related filters
  1856. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  1857. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  1858. anymore.
  1859. ** Miscellaneous
  1860. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  1861. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  1862. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  1863. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  1864. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  1865. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  1866. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  1867. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  1868. labels colliding.
  1869. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  1870. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  1871. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  1872. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  1873. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  1874. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  1875. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  1876. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  1877. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  1878. particular test failure was introduced.
  1879. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  1880. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  1881. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  1882. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  1883. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  1884. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  1885. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  1886. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  1887. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1888. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  1889. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  1890. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  1891. This helps spotting wrong links.
  1892. * Version 8.2
  1893. ** Incompatible changes
  1894. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  1895. This may require two changes in user config.
  1896. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  1897. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  1898. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  1899. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  1900. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  1901. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  1902. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  1903. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  1904. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  1905. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  1906. with this:
  1907. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  1908. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  1909. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  1910. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  1911. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  1912. So you need to replace
  1913. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  1914. by
  1915. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  1916. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  1917. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  1918. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  1919. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  1920. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  1921. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  1922. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  1923. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  1924. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  1925. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  1926. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  1927. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  1928. of a symbol.
  1929. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  1930. ** Important bugfixes
  1931. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  1932. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  1933. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  1934. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  1935. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  1936. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  1937. ** New features
  1938. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  1939. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  1940. of the list.
  1941. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  1942. - Support SVG images
  1943. - Support for .pgf files
  1944. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  1945. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  1946. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  1947. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  1948. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  1949. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  1950. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  1951. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  1952. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  1953. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  1954. in a paragraph-like way.
  1955. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1956. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  1957. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  1958. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  1959. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  1960. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  1961. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  1962. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  1963. which can then be passed to export functions like
  1964. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  1965. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  1966. registering a new back-end.
  1967. *** New agenda fortnight view
  1968. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  1969. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  1970. ** New options
  1971. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  1972. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  1973. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  1974. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  1975. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  1976. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  1977. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  1978. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  1979. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  1980. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  1981. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  1982. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1983. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1984. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1985. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1986. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1987. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1988. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1989. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1990. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1991. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1992. If you set this to the following
  1993. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1994. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1995. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1996. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1997. =C-o= in tables.
  1998. ** New contributed packages
  1999. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  2000. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  2001. software.
  2002. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  2003. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  2004. ** Miscellaneous
  2005. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  2006. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  2007. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  2008. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  2009. the same with example blocks.
  2010. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  2011. release.
  2012. * Version 8.0.1
  2013. ** Installation
  2014. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  2015. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  2016. instructions:
  2017. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  2018. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  2019. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  2020. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  2021. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  2022. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  2023. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  2024. detailed explanations.
  2025. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2026. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2027. function has been called already.
  2028. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2029. installation.
  2030. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2031. ** Incompatible changes
  2032. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2033. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2034. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2035. you will have to update them.
  2036. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2037. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2038. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2039. **** New export engine
  2040. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2041. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2042. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2043. /all/ export back-ends.
  2044. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2045. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2046. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2047. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2048. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2049. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2050. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2051. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2052. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2053. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2054. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2055. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2056. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2057. should now be written
  2058. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2059. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2060. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2061. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2062. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2063. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2064. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2065. now fully removed.
  2066. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2067. remember templates into capture templates.
  2068. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2069. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2070. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2071. **** Note for third-party developers
  2072. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2073. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2074. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2075. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2076. code.
  2077. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2078. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2079. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2080. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2081. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2082. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2083. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2084. user-base.
  2085. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2086. - org-mac-message.el
  2087. - org-mew.el
  2088. - org-wl.el
  2089. - ox-freedmind.el
  2090. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2091. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2092. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2093. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2094. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  2095. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  2096. ** New packages in core
  2097. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  2098. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  2099. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2100. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  2101. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  2102. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  2103. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  2104. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  2105. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  2106. ** New packages in contrib
  2107. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  2108. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  2109. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  2110. code.
  2111. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2112. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  2113. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  2114. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  2115. entries.
  2116. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2117. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  2118. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  2119. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  2120. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  2121. for starting headlines.
  2122. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  2123. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  2124. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  2125. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  2126. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  2127. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  2128. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  2129. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  2130. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  2131. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2132. using =deck.js=.
  2133. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  2134. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2135. using =s5=.
  2136. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2137. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2138. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2139. output.
  2140. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2141. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2142. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2143. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2144. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2145. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2146. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2147. entirely with Org.
  2148. ** New features
  2149. *** Export
  2150. **** New export generic options
  2151. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2152. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2153. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2154. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2155. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2156. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2157. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2158. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2159. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2160. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2161. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2162. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2163. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2164. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2165. contains time-stamps.
  2166. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2167. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2168. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2169. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2170. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2171. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2172. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2173. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2174. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2175. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2176. *** Structure editing
  2177. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2178. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2179. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2180. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2181. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2182. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2183. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2184. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2185. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2186. region.
  2187. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2188. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2189. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2190. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2191. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2192. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2193. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2194. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2195. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2196. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2197. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2198. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2199. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2200. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2201. forward and backward.
  2202. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2203. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2204. Now Org will sort this list
  2205. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2206. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2207. like this:
  2208. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2209. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2210. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2211. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2212. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2213. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2214. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2215. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2216. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2217. local variable.
  2218. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2219. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2220. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2221. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2222. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2223. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2224. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2225. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2226. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2227. option to =nil=.
  2228. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2229. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2230. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2231. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2232. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2233. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2234. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2235. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2236. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2237. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2238. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2239. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2240. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2241. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2242. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2243. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2244. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2245. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2246. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2247. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2248. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2249. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2250. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2251. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2252. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2253. control this globally or per agenda.
  2254. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2255. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2256. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2257. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2258. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2259. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2260. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2261. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2262. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2263. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2264. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2265. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2266. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2267. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2268. (kbd "@")
  2269. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2270. #+END_SRC
  2271. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2272. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2273. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2274. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2275. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2276. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2277. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2278. only show their description, not the full links.
  2279. *** Agenda
  2280. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2281. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2282. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2283. want to build a list of appointments.
  2284. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2285. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2286. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2287. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2288. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2289. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2290. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2291. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2292. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2293. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2294. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2295. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2296. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2297. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2298. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2299. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2300. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2301. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2302. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2303. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2304. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2305. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2306. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2307. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2308. These new options are available:
  2309. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2310. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2311. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2312. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2313. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2314. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2315. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2316. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2317. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2318. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2319. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2320. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2321. non-tagged headlines.
  2322. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2323. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2324. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2325. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2326. that take only =N= minutes.
  2327. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2328. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2329. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2330. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2331. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2332. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2333. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2334. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2335. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2336. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2337. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2338. list of notes.
  2339. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2340. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2341. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2342. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2343. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2344. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2345. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2346. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2347. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2348. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2349. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2350. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2351. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2352. outline tree.
  2353. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2354. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2355. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2356. asks for a confirmation.
  2357. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2358. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2359. the mark of the entry at point.
  2360. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2361. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2362. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2363. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2364. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2365. level 1.
  2366. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2367. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2368. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2369. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2370. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2371. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2372. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2373. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2374. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2375. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2376. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2377. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2378. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2379. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2380. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2381. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2382. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2383. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2384. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2385. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2386. Read the full docstring for details.
  2387. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2388. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2389. : * Task
  2390. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2391. *** Capture
  2392. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2393. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2394. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2395. capture template.
  2396. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2397. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2398. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2399. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2400. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2401. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2402. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2403. check against the name of the buffer.
  2404. *** Tag groups
  2405. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2406. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2407. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2408. of those tags.)
  2409. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2410. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2411. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2412. *** Links
  2413. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2414. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2415. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2416. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2417. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2418. as if the protocol was not known.
  2419. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2420. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2421. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2422. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2423. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2424. active.
  2425. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2426. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2427. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2428. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2429. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2430. When storing a link to a headline like
  2431. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2432. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2433. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2434. there is no description.
  2435. *** Table
  2436. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2437. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2438. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2439. those other formulas.
  2440. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2441. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2442. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2443. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2444. the end.
  2445. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2446. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2447. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2448. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2449. doing computation.
  2450. **** New lookup functions
  2451. There are now three lookup functions:
  2452. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2453. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2454. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2455. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2456. *** Startup keywords
  2457. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2458. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2459. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2460. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2461. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2462. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2463. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2464. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |

  2467. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2468. *** Clocking
  2469. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2470. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2471. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2472. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2473. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2474. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2475. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2476. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2477. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2478. the clocktable.
  2479. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2480. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2481. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2482. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2483. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2484. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2485. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2486. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2487. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2488. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2489. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2490. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2491. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2492. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2493. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2494. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2495. *** Babel
  2496. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2497. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2498. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2499. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2500. same target than the block at point.
  2501. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2502. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2503. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2504. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2505. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2506. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2507. time.
  2508. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2509. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2510. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2511. manual for a usage example.
  2512. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2513. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2514. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2515. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2516. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2517. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2518. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2519. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2520. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2521. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2522. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2523. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2524. *** Faces
  2525. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2526. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2527. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2528. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2529. ** Miscellaneous
  2530. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2531. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2532. - [[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]]
  2533. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2534. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2535. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2536. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2537. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2538. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2539. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2540. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2541. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2542. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2543. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2544. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2545. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2546. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2547. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2548. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2549. ** Outside Org
  2550. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2551. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2552. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2553. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2554. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2555. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2556. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2557. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2558. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2559. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2560. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2561. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2562. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2563. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2564. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2565. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2566. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2567. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2568. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2569. * Version 7.9.3
  2570. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2571. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2572. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2573. agenda views.)
  2574. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2575. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2576. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2577. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2578. agenda type to this variable.
  2579. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2580. generation.
  2581. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2582. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2583. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2584. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2585. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2586. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2587. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2588. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2589. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2590. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2591. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2592. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2593. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2594. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2595. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2596. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2597. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2598. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2599. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2600. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2601. in most environments.
  2602. * Version 7.9.2
  2603. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2604. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2605. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2606. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2607. #+END_SRC
  2608. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2609. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2610. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2611. directory.)
  2612. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2613. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2614. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2615. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2616. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |

  2627. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2628. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2629. ** New package and Babel language
  2630. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2631. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2632. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2633. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2634. ** Incompatible changes
  2635. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2636. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2637. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2638. instead.
  2639. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2640. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2641. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2642. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2643. *** Org Element
  2644. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2645. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2646. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2647. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2648. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2649. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2650. See the docstrings for more details.
  2651. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2652. on =org-element.el=.
  2653. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2654. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2655. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2656. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2657. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2658. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2659. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2660. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2661. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2662. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2663. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2664. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2665. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2666. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2667. elements.
  2668. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2669. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2670. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2671. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2672. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2673. item. Etc.
  2674. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2675. the whole list.
  2676. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2677. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2678. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2679. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2680. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2681. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2682. the same level.
  2683. *** Org Agenda
  2684. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2685. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2686. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2687. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2688. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2689. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2690. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2691. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2692. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2693. generating new ones.
  2694. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2695. agenda buffer.
  2696. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2697. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2698. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2699. to this value
  2700. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2701. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2702. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2703. #+END_SRC
  2704. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2705. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2706. details on how to use this.
  2707. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2708. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2709. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2710. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2711. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2712. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2713. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2714. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2715. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2716. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2717. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2718. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2719. =t=.
  2720. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2721. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2722. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2723. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2724. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2725. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2726. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2727. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2728. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2729. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2730. =f= or =w=).
  2731. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2732. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2733. of deadline.
  2734. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2735. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2736. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2737. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2738. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2739. several times.
  2740. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2741. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2742. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2743. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2744. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2745. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2746. filters and category filters.
  2747. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2748. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2749. configuration.
  2750. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2751. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2752. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2753. point.
  2754. *** Org Links
  2755. **** Inserting links
  2756. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2757. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2758. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2759. want to insert.
  2760. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2761. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2762. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2763. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2764. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2765. highlighted.
  2766. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2767. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2768. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2769. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2770. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2771. **** New link type =help=
  2772. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2773. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2774. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2775. you go back to the same buffer.
  2776. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2777. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2778. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2779. =org-stored-links=.
  2780. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2781. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2782. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2783. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2784. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2785. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2786. *** Org Editing
  2787. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2788. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2789. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2790. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2791. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2792. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2793. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2794. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2795. all headlines in the region.
  2796. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2797. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2798. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2799. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2800. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2801. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2802. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2803. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2804. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2805. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2806. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2807. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2808. undo RET=.
  2809. *** Org Clock
  2810. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2811. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2812. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2813. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2814. clocked entry, if any.
  2815. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2816. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2817. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2818. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2819. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2820. out.
  2821. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2822. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2823. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2824. arguments).
  2825. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2826. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2827. in.
  2828. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2829. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2830. cells in clockreport.
  2831. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2832. time cells in clockreport.
  2833. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2834. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2835. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2836. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2837. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2838. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2839. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2840. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2841. space in the frame title.
  2842. *** Org Appearance
  2843. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2844. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2845. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2846. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2847. don't want to see temporarily.
  2848. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2849. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2850. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2851. There are these new entities:
  2852. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2853. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2854. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2855. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2856. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2857. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2858. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2859. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2860. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2861. The face is back to a normal height.
  2862. *** Org Columns
  2863. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2864. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2865. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2866. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2867. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2868. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2869. block will use its value as the column format.
  2870. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2871. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2872. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2873. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2874. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2875. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2876. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2877. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2878. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2879. You can now use
  2880. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2881. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2882. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2883. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2884. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2885. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2886. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2887. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2888. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2889. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2890. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2891. *** Org Capture
  2892. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2893. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2894. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2895. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2896. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2897. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2898. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2899. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2900. set to this value
  2901. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2902. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2903. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2904. #+END_SRC
  2905. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2906. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2907. more details on how to use this.
  2908. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2909. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2910. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2911. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2912. =nil=.
  2913. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2914. See the manual for more explanations.
  2915. **** More control over empty lines
  2916. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2917. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2918. explanations.
  2919. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2920. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2921. *** Org Export
  2922. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2923. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2924. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2925. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2926. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2927. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2928. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2929. the table.
  2930. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2931. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2932. in the #+DATE option.
  2933. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2934. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2935. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2936. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2937. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2938. More languages are always welcome.
  2939. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2940. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2941. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2942. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2943. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2944. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2945. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2946. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2947. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2948. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2949. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2950. *** Org Babel
  2951. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2952. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2953. supported.
  2954. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2955. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2956. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2957. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2958. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2959. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2960. *** Miscellaneous
  2961. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2962. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2963. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2964. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2965. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2966. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2967. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2968. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2969. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2970. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2971. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2972. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2973. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2974. alarm.
  2975. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2976. This will increment the effort value.
  2977. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2978. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2979. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2980. attach symbolic links.
  2981. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2982. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2983. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2984. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2985. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2986. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2987. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2988. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2989. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2990. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2991. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2992. all top level list items.
  2993. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2994. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2995. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2996. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2997. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2998. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2999. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  3000. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  3001. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  3002. first headline in the region.
  3003. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  3004. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  3005. agenda.
  3006. ** Important bug fixes
  3007. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  3008. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  3009. perform completion with meaningful values.
  3010. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  3011. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  3012. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  3013. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  3014. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  3015. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  3016. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  3017. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  3018. license.
  3019. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  3020. the code and the license to your needs.
  3021. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  3022. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  3023. * Version 7.8.11
  3024. ** Incompatible changes
  3025. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3026. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3027. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3028. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3029. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3030. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3031. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3032. last-minute save.
  3033. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3034. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3035. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3036. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3037. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3038. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3039. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3040. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3041. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3042. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3043. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3044. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3045. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3046. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3047. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3048. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3049. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3050. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3051. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3052. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3053. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3054. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3055. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3056. #+end_src
  3057. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3058. setup./
  3059. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3060. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3061. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3062. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3063. The two new variables are:
  3064. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3065. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3066. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3067. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3068. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3069. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3070. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3071. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3072. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3073. classes.
  3074. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3075. document are:
  3076. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3077. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3078. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3079. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3080. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3081. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3082. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3083. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3084. #+begin_example
  3085. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3086. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3087. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3088. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3089. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3090. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3091. #+end_example
  3092. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3093. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3094. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3095. applies to the following packages:
  3096. - inputenc
  3097. - fontenc
  3098. - fixltx2e
  3099. - graphicx
  3100. - longtable
  3101. - float
  3102. - wrapfig
  3103. - soul
  3104. - t1enc
  3105. - textcomp
  3106. - marvosym
  3107. - wasysym
  3108. - latexsym
  3109. - amssymb
  3110. - hyperref
  3111. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3112. you are using, you can remove it from
  3113. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3114. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3115. properly.
  3116. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3117. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3118. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3119. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3120. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3121. the header.
  3122. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3123. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3124. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3125. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3126. code using it.
  3127. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3128. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3129. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3130. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3131. ** Important new features
  3132. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3133. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3134. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3135. for more information on how to customize it.
  3136. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3137. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3138. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3139. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3140. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3141. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3142. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3143. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3144. To switch over to the new system:
  3145. 1. Run
  3146. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3147. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3148. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3149. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3150. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3151. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3152. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3153. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3154. customization.
  3155. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3156. with org-remember:
  3157. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3158. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3159. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3160. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3161. with using both system in parallel.
  3162. ** New libraries
  3163. *** New Org libraries
  3164. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3165. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3166. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3167. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3168. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3169. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3170. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3171. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3172. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3173. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3174. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3175. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3176. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3177. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3178. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3179. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3180. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3181. anything.
  3182. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3183. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3184. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3185. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3186. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3187. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3188. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3189. /org-ctags.el/.
  3190. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3191. call function to do something special with text links.
  3192. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3193. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3194. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3195. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3196. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3197. Org-mode manual:
  3198. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3199. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3200. *** New Babel libraries
  3201. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3202. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3203. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3204. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3205. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3206. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3207. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3208. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3209. *** Hyperlinks
  3210. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3211. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3212. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3213. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3214. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3215. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3216. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3217. The key new functions are
  3218. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3219. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3220. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3221. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3222. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3223. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3224. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3225. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3226. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3227. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3228. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3229. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3230. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3231. **** Modified link escaping
  3232. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  3233. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3234. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3235. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3236. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3237. : link).
  3238. :
  3239. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3240. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3241. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3242. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3243. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3244. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3245. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3246. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3247. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3248. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3249. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3250. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3251. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3252. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3253. string to be executed.
  3254. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3255. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3256. to org-file-apps:
  3257. #+begin_example
  3258. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3259. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3260. #+end_example
  3261. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3262. *** Dates and time
  3263. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3264. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3265. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3266. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3267. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3268. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3269. will work on the current entry.
  3270. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3271. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3272. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3273. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3274. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3275. #+begin_example
  3276. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3277. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3278. #+end_example
  3279. *** Agenda
  3280. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3281. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3282. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3283. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3284. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3285. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3286. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3287. entries using a function.
  3288. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3289. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3290. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3291. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3292. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3293. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3294. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3295. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3296. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3297. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3298. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3299. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3300. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3301. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3302. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3303. *** Exporting
  3304. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3305. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3306. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3307. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3308. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3309. %-sequences.
  3310. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3311. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3312. formatting string will insert a string.
  3313. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3314. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3315. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3316. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3317. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3318. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3319. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3320. C-e u=, respectively.
  3321. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3322. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3323. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3324. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3325. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3326. your preference.
  3327. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3328. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3329. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3330. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3331. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3332. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3333. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3334. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3335. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3336. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3337. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3338. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3339. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3340. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3341. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3342. individual could.
  3343. *** Refiling
  3344. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3345. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3346. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3347. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3348. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3349. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3350. **** New logging support for refiling
  3351. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3352. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3353. =org-log-refile=.
  3354. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3355. *** Completion
  3356. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3357. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3358. *** Tables
  3359. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3360. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3361. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3362. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3363. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3364. the displayed in the buffer.
  3365. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3366. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3367. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3368. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3369. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3370. |--------+--------+---------|
  3371. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3372. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3373. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3374. optional.
  3375. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3376. feedback on this.
  3377. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3378. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3379. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3380. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3381. : things like
  3382. :
  3383. : @3=
  3384. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3385. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3386. :
  3387. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3388. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3389. : table.
  3390. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3391. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3392. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3393. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3394. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3395. *** Lists
  3396. **** Improved handling of lists
  3397. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3398. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3399. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3400. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3401. indented than it.
  3402. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3403. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3404. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3405. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3406. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3407. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3408. `org-list-export-context'.
  3409. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3410. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3411. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3412. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3413. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3414. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3415. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3416. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3417. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3418. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3419. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3420. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3421. *** Inline display of linked images
  3422. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3423. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3424. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3425. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3426. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3427. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3428. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3429. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3430. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3431. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3432. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3433. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3434. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3435. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3436. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3437. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3438. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3439. tangling
  3440. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3441. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3442. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3443. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3444. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3445. properties or in tables.
  3446. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3447. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3448. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3449. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3450. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3451. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3452. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3453. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3454. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3455. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3456. request by Scott Otterson.
  3457. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3458. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3459. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3460. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3461. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3462. superscripts, see the variable
  3463. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3464. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3465. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3466. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3467. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3468. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3469. following new faces:
  3470. =org-document-title=
  3471. =org-document-info=
  3472. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3473. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3474. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3475. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3476. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3477. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3478. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3479. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3480. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3481. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3482. property is affected by this setting.
  3483. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3484. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3485. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3486. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3487. **** Better level cycling function
  3488. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3489. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3490. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3491. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3492. **** Adaptive filling
  3493. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3494. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3495. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3496. comments to be filled correctly.
  3497. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3498. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3499. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3500. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3501. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3502. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3503. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3504. *** Clocking
  3505. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3506. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3507. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3508. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3509. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3510. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3511. **** Localized clock tables
  3512. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3513. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3514. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3515. available translated strings.
  3516. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3517. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3518. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3519. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3520. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3521. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3522. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3523. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3524. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3525. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3526. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3527. =nil=.
  3528. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3529. *** Misc
  3530. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3531. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3532. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3533. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3534. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3535. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3536. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3537. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3538. property) back.
  3539. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3540. change.
  3541. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3542. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3543. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3544. #+begin_example
  3545. org-table-get
  3546. org-table-put
  3547. org-table-current-line
  3548. org-table-goto-line
  3549. #+end_example
  3550. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3551. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3552. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3553. node.
  3554. This was requested by Tom.
  3555. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3556. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3557. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3558. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
