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

  1996. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  1997. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  1998. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  1999. ** New packages in contrib

  2008. entries.
  2009. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2010. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  2011. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  2012. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  2013. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  2014. for starting headlines.
  2015. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  2016. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  2017. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  2018. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  2019. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  2020. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  2021. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  2022. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  2023. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  2024. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2025. using =deck.js=.
  2026. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  2027. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2028. using =s5=.
  2029. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2030. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2031. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2032. output.
  2033. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2034. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2035. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2036. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2037. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2038. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2039. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2040. entirely with Org.
  2041. ** New features
  2042. *** Export
  2043. **** New export generic options
  2044. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2045. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2046. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2047. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2048. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2049. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2050. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2051. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2052. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2053. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2054. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2055. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2056. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2057. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2058. contains time-stamps.
  2059. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2060. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2061. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2062. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2063. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2064. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2065. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2066. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2067. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2068. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2069. *** Structure editing
  2070. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2071. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2072. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2073. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2074. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2075. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2076. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2077. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2078. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2079. region.
  2080. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2081. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2082. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2083. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2084. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2085. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2086. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2087. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2088. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2089. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2090. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2091. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2092. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2093. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2094. forward and backward.
  2095. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2096. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2097. Now Org will sort this list
  2098. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2099. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2100. like this:
  2101. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2102. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2103. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2104. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2105. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2106. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2107. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2108. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2109. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2110. local variable.
  2111. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2112. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2113. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2114. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2115. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2116. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2117. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2118. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2119. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2120. option to =nil=.
  2121. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2122. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2123. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2124. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2125. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2126. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2127. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2128. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2129. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2130. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2131. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2132. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2133. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2134. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2135. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2136. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2137. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2138. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2139. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2140. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2141. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2142. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2143. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2144. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2145. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2146. control this globally or per agenda.
  2147. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2148. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2149. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2150. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2151. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2152. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2153. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2154. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2155. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2156. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2157. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2158. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2159. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2160. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2161. (kbd "@")
  2162. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2163. #+END_SRC
  2164. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2165. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2166. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2167. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2168. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2169. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2170. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2171. only show their description, not the full links.
  2172. *** Agenda
  2173. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2174. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2175. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2176. want to build a list of appointments.
  2177. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2178. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2179. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2180. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2181. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2182. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2183. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2184. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2185. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2186. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2187. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2188. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2189. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2190. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2191. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2192. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2193. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2194. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2195. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2196. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2197. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2198. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2199. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2200. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2201. These new options are available:
  2202. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2203. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2204. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2205. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2206. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2207. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2208. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2209. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2210. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2211. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2212. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2213. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2214. non-tagged headlines.
  2215. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2216. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2217. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2218. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2219. that take only =N= minutes.
  2220. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2221. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2222. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2223. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2224. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2225. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2226. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2227. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2228. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2229. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2230. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2231. list of notes.
  2232. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2233. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2234. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2235. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2236. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2237. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2238. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2239. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2240. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2241. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2242. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2243. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2244. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2245. outline tree.
  2246. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2247. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2248. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2249. asks for a confirmation.
  2250. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2251. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2252. the mark of the entry at point.
  2253. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2254. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2255. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2256. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2257. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2258. level 1.
  2259. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2260. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2261. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2262. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2263. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2264. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2265. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2266. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2267. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2268. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2269. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2270. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2271. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2272. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2273. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2274. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2275. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2276. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2277. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2278. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2279. Read the full docstring for details.
  2280. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2281. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2282. : * Task
  2283. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2284. *** Capture
  2285. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2286. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2287. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2288. capture template.
  2289. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2290. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2291. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2292. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2293. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2294. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2295. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2296. check against the name of the buffer.
  2297. *** Tag groups
  2298. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2299. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2300. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2301. of those tags.)
  2302. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2303. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2304. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2305. *** Links
  2306. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2307. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2308. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2309. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2310. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2311. as if the protocol was not known.
  2312. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2313. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2314. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2315. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2316. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2317. active.
  2318. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2319. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2320. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2321. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2322. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2323. When storing a link to a headline like
  2324. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2325. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2326. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2327. there is no description.
  2328. *** Table
  2329. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2330. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2331. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2332. those other formulas.
  2333. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2334. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2335. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2336. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2337. the end.
  2338. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2339. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2340. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2341. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2342. doing computation.
  2343. **** New lookup functions
  2344. There are now three lookup functions:
  2345. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2346. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2347. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2348. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2349. *** Startup keywords
  2350. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2351. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2352. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2353. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2354. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2355. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2356. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2357. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  2358. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2359. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  2360. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2361. *** Clocking
  2362. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2363. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2364. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2365. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2366. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2367. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2368. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2369. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2370. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2371. the clocktable.
  2372. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2373. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2374. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2375. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2376. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2377. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2378. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2379. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2380. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2381. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2382. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2383. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2384. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2385. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2386. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2387. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2388. *** Babel
  2389. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2390. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2391. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2392. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2393. same target than the block at point.
  2394. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2395. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2396. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2397. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2398. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2399. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2400. time.
  2401. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2402. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2403. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2404. manual for a usage example.
  2405. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2406. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2407. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2408. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2409. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2410. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2411. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2412. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2413. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2414. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2415. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2416. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2417. *** Faces
  2418. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2419. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2420. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2421. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2422. ** Miscellaneous
  2423. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2424. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2425. - [[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]]
  2426. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2427. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2428. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2429. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2430. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2431. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2432. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2433. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2434. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2435. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2436. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2437. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2438. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2439. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2440. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2441. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2442. ** Outside Org
  2443. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2444. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2445. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2446. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2447. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2448. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2449. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2450. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2451. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2452. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2453. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2454. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2455. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:

  2458. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2459. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2460. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2461. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2462. * Version 7.9.3
  2463. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2464. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2465. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2466. agenda views.)
  2467. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2468. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2469. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2470. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2471. agenda type to this variable.
  2472. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2473. generation.
  2474. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2475. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2476. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2477. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2478. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2479. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2480. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2481. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2482. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2483. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2484. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2485. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2486. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2487. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2488. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2489. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2490. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2491. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2492. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2493. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2494. in most environments.
  2495. * Version 7.9.2
  2496. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2497. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2498. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2499. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2500. #+END_SRC
  2501. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2502. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2503. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2504. directory.)
  2505. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2506. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2507. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2508. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2509. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |

  2520. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2521. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2522. ** New package and Babel language
  2523. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2524. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2525. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2526. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2527. ** Incompatible changes
  2528. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2529. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2530. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2531. instead.
  2532. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2533. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2534. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2535. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2536. *** Org Element
  2537. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2538. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2539. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2540. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2541. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2542. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2543. See the docstrings for more details.
  2544. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2545. on =org-element.el=.
  2546. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2547. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2548. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2549. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2550. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2551. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2552. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2553. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2554. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2555. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2556. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2557. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2558. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2559. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2560. elements.
  2561. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2562. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2563. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2564. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2565. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2566. item. Etc.
  2567. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2568. the whole list.
  2569. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2570. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2571. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2572. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2573. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2574. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2575. the same level.
  2576. *** Org Agenda
  2577. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2578. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2579. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2580. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2581. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2582. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2583. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2584. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2585. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2586. generating new ones.
  2587. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2588. agenda buffer.
  2589. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2590. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2591. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2592. to this value
  2593. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2594. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2595. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2596. #+END_SRC
  2597. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2598. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2599. details on how to use this.
  2600. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2601. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2602. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2603. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2604. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2605. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2606. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2607. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2608. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2609. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2610. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2611. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2612. =t=.
  2613. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2614. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2615. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2616. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2617. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2618. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2619. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2620. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2621. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2622. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2623. =f= or =w=).
  2624. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2625. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2626. of deadline.
  2627. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2628. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2629. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2630. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2631. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2632. several times.
  2633. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2634. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2635. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2636. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2637. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2638. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2639. filters and category filters.
  2640. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2641. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2642. configuration.
  2643. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2644. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2645. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2646. point.
  2647. *** Org Links
  2648. **** Inserting links
  2649. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2650. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2651. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2652. want to insert.
  2653. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2654. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2655. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2656. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2657. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2658. highlighted.
  2659. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2660. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2661. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2662. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2663. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2664. **** New link type =help=
  2665. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2666. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2667. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2668. you go back to the same buffer.
  2669. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2670. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2671. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2672. =org-stored-links=.
  2673. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2674. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2675. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2676. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2677. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2678. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2679. *** Org Editing
  2680. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2681. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2682. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2683. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2684. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2685. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2686. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2687. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2688. all headlines in the region.
  2689. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2690. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2691. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2692. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2693. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2694. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2695. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2696. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2697. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2698. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2699. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2700. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2701. undo RET=.
  2702. *** Org Clock
  2703. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2704. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2705. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2706. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2707. clocked entry, if any.
  2708. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2709. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2710. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2711. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2712. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2713. out.
  2714. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2715. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2716. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2717. arguments).
  2718. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2719. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2720. in.
  2721. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2722. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2723. cells in clockreport.
  2724. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2725. time cells in clockreport.
  2726. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2727. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2728. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2729. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2730. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2731. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2732. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2733. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2734. space in the frame title.
  2735. *** Org Appearance
  2736. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2737. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2738. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2739. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2740. don't want to see temporarily.
  2741. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2742. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2743. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2744. There are these new entities:
  2745. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2746. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2747. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2748. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2749. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2750. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2751. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2752. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2753. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2754. The face is back to a normal height.
  2755. *** Org Columns
  2756. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2757. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2758. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2759. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2760. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2761. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2762. block will use its value as the column format.
  2763. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2764. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2765. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2766. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2767. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2768. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2769. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2770. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2771. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2772. You can now use
  2773. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2774. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2775. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2776. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2777. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2778. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2779. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2780. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2781. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2782. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2783. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2784. *** Org Capture
  2785. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2786. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2787. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2788. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2789. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2790. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2791. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2792. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2793. set to this value
  2794. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2795. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2796. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2797. #+END_SRC
  2798. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2799. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2800. more details on how to use this.
  2801. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2802. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2803. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2804. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2805. =nil=.
  2806. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2807. See the manual for more explanations.
  2808. **** More control over empty lines
  2809. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2810. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2811. explanations.
  2812. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2813. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2814. *** Org Export
  2815. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2816. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2817. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2818. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2819. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2820. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2821. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2822. the table.
  2823. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2824. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2825. in the #+DATE option.
  2826. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2827. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2828. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2829. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2830. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2831. More languages are always welcome.
  2832. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2833. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2834. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2835. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2836. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2837. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2838. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2839. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2840. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2841. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2842. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2843. *** Org Babel
  2844. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2845. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2846. supported.
  2847. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2848. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2849. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2850. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2851. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2852. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2853. *** Miscellaneous
  2854. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2855. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2856. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2857. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2858. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2859. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2860. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2861. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2862. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2863. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2864. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2865. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2866. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2867. alarm.
  2868. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2869. This will increment the effort value.
  2870. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2871. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2872. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2873. attach symbolic links.
  2874. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2875. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2876. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2877. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2878. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2879. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2880. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2881. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2882. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2883. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2884. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2885. all top level list items.
  2886. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2887. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2888. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2889. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2890. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2891. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2892. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2893. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2894. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2895. first headline in the region.
  2896. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2897. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2898. agenda.
  2899. ** Important bug fixes
  2900. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2901. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2902. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2903. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2904. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2905. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2906. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2907. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2908. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2909. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2910. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2911. license.
  2912. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2913. the code and the license to your needs.
  2914. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2915. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2916. * Version 7.8.11
  2917. ** Incompatible changes
  2918. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  2919. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  2920. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  2921. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  2922. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  2923. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  2924. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  2925. last-minute save.
  2926. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  2927. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  2928. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  2929. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  2930. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  2931. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  2932. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  2933. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  2934. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  2935. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  2936. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  2937. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  2938. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  2939. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  2940. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  2941. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  2942. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  2943. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  2944. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  2945. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  2946. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  2947. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  2948. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  2949. #+end_src
  2950. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  2951. setup./
  2952. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  2953. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  2954. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  2955. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  2956. The two new variables are:
  2957. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  2958. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  2959. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  2960. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  2961. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  2962. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  2963. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  2964. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  2965. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  2966. classes.
  2967. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  2968. document are:
  2969. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  2970. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  2971. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  2972. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  2973. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  2974. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  2975. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  2976. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  2977. #+begin_example
  2978. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  2979. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  2980. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  2981. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  2982. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  2983. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  2984. #+end_example
  2985. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  2986. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  2987. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  2988. applies to the following packages:
  2989. - inputenc
  2990. - fontenc
  2991. - fixltx2e
  2992. - graphicx
  2993. - longtable
  2994. - float
  2995. - wrapfig
  2996. - soul
  2997. - t1enc
  2998. - textcomp
  2999. - marvosym
  3000. - wasysym
  3001. - latexsym
  3002. - amssymb
  3003. - hyperref
  3004. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3005. you are using, you can remove it from
  3006. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3007. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3008. properly.
  3009. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3010. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3011. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3012. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3013. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3014. the header.
  3015. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3016. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3017. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3018. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3019. code using it.
  3020. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3021. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3022. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3023. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3024. ** Important new features
  3025. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3026. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3027. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3028. for more information on how to customize it.
  3029. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3030. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3031. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3032. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3033. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3034. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3035. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3036. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3037. To switch over to the new system:
  3038. 1. Run
  3039. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3040. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3041. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3042. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3043. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3044. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3045. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3046. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3047. customization.
  3048. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3049. with org-remember:
  3050. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3051. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3052. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3053. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3054. with using both system in parallel.
  3055. ** New libraries
  3056. *** New Org libraries
  3057. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3058. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3059. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3060. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3061. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3062. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3063. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3064. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3065. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3066. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3067. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3068. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3069. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3070. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3071. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3072. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3073. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3074. anything.
  3075. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3076. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3077. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3078. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3079. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3080. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3081. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3082. /org-ctags.el/.
  3083. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3084. call function to do something special with text links.
  3085. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3086. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3087. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3088. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3089. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3090. Org-mode manual:
  3091. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3092. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3093. *** New Babel libraries
  3094. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3095. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3096. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3097. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3098. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3099. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3100. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3101. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3102. *** Hyperlinks
  3103. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3104. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3105. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3106. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3107. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3108. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3109. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3110. The key new functions are
  3111. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3112. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3113. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3114. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3115. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3116. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3117. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3118. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3119. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3120. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3121. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3122. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3123. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3124. **** Modified link escaping
  3125. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  3126. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3127. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3128. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3129. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3130. : link).
  3131. :
  3132. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3133. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3134. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3135. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3136. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3137. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3138. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3139. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3140. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3141. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3142. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3143. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3144. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3145. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3146. string to be executed.
  3147. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3148. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3149. to org-file-apps:
  3150. #+begin_example
  3151. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3152. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3153. #+end_example
  3154. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3155. *** Dates and time
  3156. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3157. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3158. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3159. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3160. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3161. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3162. will work on the current entry.
  3163. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3164. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3165. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3166. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3167. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3168. #+begin_example
  3169. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3170. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3171. #+end_example
  3172. *** Agenda
  3173. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3174. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3175. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3176. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3177. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3178. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3179. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3180. entries using a function.
  3181. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3182. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3183. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3184. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3185. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3186. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3187. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3188. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3189. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3190. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3191. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3192. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3193. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3194. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3195. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3196. *** Exporting
  3197. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3198. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3199. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3200. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3201. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3202. %-sequences.
  3203. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3204. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3205. formatting string will insert a string.
  3206. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3207. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3208. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3209. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3210. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3211. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3212. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3213. C-e u=, respectively.
  3214. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3215. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3216. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3217. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3218. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3219. your preference.
  3220. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3221. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3222. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3223. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3224. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3225. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3226. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3227. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3228. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3229. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3230. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3231. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3232. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3233. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3234. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3235. individual could.
  3236. *** Refiling
  3237. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3238. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3239. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3240. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3241. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3242. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3243. **** New logging support for refiling
  3244. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3245. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3246. =org-log-refile=.
  3247. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3248. *** Completion
  3249. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3250. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3251. *** Tables
  3252. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3253. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3254. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3255. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3256. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3257. the displayed in the buffer.
  3258. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3259. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3260. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3261. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3262. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3263. |--------+--------+---------|
  3264. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3265. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3266. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3267. optional.
  3268. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3269. feedback on this.
  3270. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3271. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3272. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3273. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3274. : things like
  3275. :
  3276. : @3=
  3277. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3278. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3279. :
  3280. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3281. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3282. : table.
  3283. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3284. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3285. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3286. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3287. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3288. *** Lists
  3289. **** Improved handling of lists
  3290. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3291. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3292. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3293. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3294. indented than it.
  3295. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3296. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3297. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3298. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3299. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3300. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3301. `org-list-export-context'.
  3302. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3303. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3304. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3305. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3306. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3307. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3308. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3309. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3310. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3311. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3312. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3313. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3314. *** Inline display of linked images
  3315. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3316. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3317. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3318. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3319. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3320. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3321. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3322. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3323. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3324. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3325. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3326. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3327. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3328. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3329. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3330. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3331. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3332. tangling
  3333. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3334. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3335. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3336. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3337. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3338. properties or in tables.
  3339. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3340. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3341. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3342. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3343. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3344. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3345. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3346. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3347. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3348. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3349. request by Scott Otterson.
  3350. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3351. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3352. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3353. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3354. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3355. superscripts, see the variable
  3356. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3357. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3358. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3359. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3360. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3361. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3362. following new faces:
  3363. =org-document-title=
  3364. =org-document-info=
  3365. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3366. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3367. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3368. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3369. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3370. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3371. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3372. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3373. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3374. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3375. property is affected by this setting.
  3376. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3377. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3378. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3379. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3380. **** Better level cycling function
  3381. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3382. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3383. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3384. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3385. **** Adaptive filling
  3386. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3387. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3388. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3389. comments to be filled correctly.
  3390. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3391. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3392. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3393. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3394. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3395. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3396. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3397. *** Clocking
  3398. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3399. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3400. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3401. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3402. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3403. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3404. **** Localized clock tables
  3405. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3406. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3407. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3408. available translated strings.
  3409. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3410. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3411. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3412. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3413. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3414. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3415. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3416. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3417. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3418. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3419. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3420. =nil=.
  3421. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3422. *** Misc
  3423. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3424. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3425. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3426. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3427. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3428. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3429. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3430. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3431. property) back.
  3432. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3433. change.
  3434. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3435. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3436. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3437. #+begin_example
  3438. org-table-get
  3439. org-table-put
  3440. org-table-current-line
  3441. org-table-goto-line
  3442. #+end_example
  3443. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3444. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3445. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3446. node.
  3447. This was requested by Tom.
  3448. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3449. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3450. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3451. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
