  8. Please send Org bug reports to mailto:emacs-orgmode@gnu.org.
  9. * Version 9.5 (not yet released)
  10. ** Important announcements and breaking changes
  11. *** The =contrib/= now lives in a separate repository
  12. Org's repository has been trimmed from the =contrib/= directory.
  13. The old contents of the =contrib/= directory now lives in a separate
  14. repository at https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/org-contrib.
  15. You can install this repository by cloning it and updating your
  16. ~load-path~ accordingly. You can also install =org-contrib= as a
  17. [[https://elpa.nongnu.org/nongnu/][NonGNU ELPA]] package.
  18. *** Org ELPA and Org archives won't be available for Org > 9.5
  19. [[https://orgmode.org/elpa.html][Org ELPA]] is still available for installing Org 9.5, either with or
  20. without contributed packages, but future versions won't be available
  21. via Org ELPA, as we are deprecating this installation method.
  22. Also, Org 9.5 is available as =tar.gz= and =zip= archives, but this
  23. installation method is also deprecated.
  24. If you want to install the latest stable versions of Org, please use
  25. the GNU ELPA package. If you want to install the contributed files,
  26. please use the NonGNU ELPA package. If you want to keep up with the
  27. latest unstable Org, please install from the Git repository.
  28. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for the details.
  29. *** =ditaa.jar= is not bundled with Org anymore
  30. =ditaa.jar= used to be bundled with Org but it is not anymore.
  31. See [[https://github.com/stathissideris/ditaa][the ditaa repository]] on how to install it.
  32. *** ~org-adapt-indentation~ now defaults to =nil=
  33. If you want to automatically indent headlines' metadata, set it to
  34. =headline-data=.
  35. If you want to automatically indent every line to the headline's
  36. current indentation, set it to =t=.
  37. Indent added by =RET= and =C-j= also depends on the value of
  38. ~electric-indent-mode~. Enabling this mode by default in 9.4 revealed
  39. some bugs caused confusing behavior. If you disabled
  40. ~electric-indent-mode~ for this reason, it is time to try it again.
  41. Hopefully problems have been fixed. See [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#indentation][this FAQ]] for more details.
  42. *** ~org-speed-commands-user~ is obsolete, use ~org-speed-commands~
  43. Setting ~org-speed-commands-user~ in your configuration won't have any
  44. effect. Please set ~org-speed-commands~ instead, which see.
  45. ** New options and settings
  46. *** Option ~org-hidden-keywords~ now also applies to #+SUBTITLE:
  47. The option ~org-hidden-keywords~ previously applied
  48. to #+TITLE:, #+AUTHOR:, #+DATE:, and #+EMAIL:. Now it can also be
  49. used to hide the #+SUBTITLE: keyword.
  50. *** New formatting directive ~%L~ for org-capture
  51. The new ~%L~ formatting directive contains the bare link target, and
  52. may be used to create links with programmatically generated
  53. descriptions.
  54. *** New option ~org-id-ts-format~
  55. Earlier, IDs generated using =ts= method had a hard-coded format (i.e. =20200923T160237.891616=).
  56. The new option allows user to customise the format.
  57. Defaults are unchanged.
  58. *** New argument for ~file-desc~ babel header
  59. It is now possible to provide the =file-desc= header argument for a
  60. babel source block but omit the description by passing an empty vector
  61. as an argument (i.e., :file-desc []). This can be useful because
  62. providing =file-desc= without an argument results in the result of
  63. =file= being used in the description. Previously, the only way to
  64. omit a file description was to omit the header argument entirely,
  65. which made it difficult/impossible to provide a default value for
  66. =file-desc=.
  67. *** New option to set ~org-link-file-path-type~ to a function
  68. ~org-link-file-path-type~ can now be set to a function that takes the
  69. full filename as an argument and returns the path to link to.
  70. For example, if you use ~project.el~, you can set this function to use
  71. relative links within a project as follows:
  72. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  73. (setq (org-link-file-path-type
  74. (lambda (path)
  75. (let* ((proj (project-current))
  76. (root (if proj (project-root proj) default-directory)))
  77. (if (string-prefix-p (expand-file-name root) path)
  78. (file-relative-name path)
  79. (abbreviate-file-name path))))))
  80. #+end_src
  81. *** New options and new behavior for babel LaTeX SVG image files
  82. Org babel now uses a two-stage process for converting latex source
  83. blocks to SVG image files (when the extension of the output file is
  84. ~.svg~). The first stage in the process converts the latex block into
  85. a PDF file, which is then converted into an SVG file in the second
  86. stage. The TeX->PDF part uses the existing infrastructure for
  87. ~org-babel-latex-tex-to-pdf~. The PDF->SVG part uses a command
  88. specified in a new customization,
  89. ~org-babel-latex-pdf-svg-process~. By default, this uses inkscape for
  90. conversion, but since it is fully customizable, any other command can
  91. be used in its place. For instance, dvisvgm might be used here. This
  92. two-part processing replaces the previous use of htlatex to process
  93. LaTeX directly to SVG (htlatex is still used for HTML conversion).
  94. Conversion to SVG exposes a number of additional customizations that
  95. give the user full control over the contents of the latex source
  96. block. ~org-babel-latex-preamble~, ~org-babel-latex-begin-env~ and
  97. ~org-babel-latex-end-env~ are new customization options added to allow
  98. the user to specify the preamble and code that preceedes and proceeds
  99. the contents of the source block.
  100. *** New option ~org-html-meta-tags~ allows for HTML meta tags customization
  101. New variable ~org-html-meta-tags~ makes it possible to customize the
  102. =<meta>= tags used in an HTML export. Accepts either a static list of
  103. values, or a function that generates such a list (see
  104. ~org-html-meta-tags-default~ as an example of the latter).
  105. *** Option ~org-agenda-bulk-custom-functions~ now supports collecting bulk arguments
  106. When specifying a custom agenda bulk option, you can now also specify
  107. a function which collects the arguments to be used with each call to
  108. the custom function.
  109. *** New option ~org-clock-ask-before-exiting~
  110. By default, a function is now added to ~kill-emacs-query-functions~
  111. that asks whether to clock out and save when there's a running clock.
  112. Customize ~org-clock-ask-before-exiting~~ to nil to disable this new
  113. behavior.
  114. *** Option ~org-html-inline-image-rules~ now includes .webp
  115. By default ox-html now inlines webp images.
  116. *** ~org-html-head-include-scripts~ is now =nil= by default
  117. See [[msg:498dbe2e-0cd2-c81e-7960-4a26c566a1f7@memebeam.org][this thread]].
  118. *** New option ~org-html-content-class~
  119. This is the CSS class name to use for the top level content wrapper.
  120. *** New option ~org-babel-plantuml-svg-text-to-path~
  121. This option, nil by default, allows to add a SVG-specific post-export
  122. step that runs inkscape text-to-path replacement over the output file.
  123. *** You can now configure ~org-html-scripts~ and ~org-html-style-default~
  124. ~org-html-scripts~ and ~org-html-style-default~ used to be constants,
  125. you can now configure them.
  126. *** New option ~org-attach-git-dir~
  127. ~org-attach-git-dir~ will decide whether to use ~org-attach-git-dir~
  128. (the default) or use the attachment directory of the current node, if
  129. it is correctly configured as a Git repository.
  130. *** Some faces now use fixed-pitch
  131. See [[msg:875z8njaol.fsf@protesilaos.com][this thread]].
  132. *** New option ~org-attach-sync-delete-empty-dir~
  133. ~org-attach-sync-delete-empty-dir~ controls the deletion of an empty
  134. attachment directory at calls of ~org-attach-sync~. There is
  135. Never delete, Always delete and Query the user (default).
  136. ** New features
  137. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ is now part of Org's core
  138. ~ox-koma-letter.el~ provides a KOMA scrlttr2 back-end for the Org
  139. export engine. It used to be in the =contrib/= directory but it is
  140. now part of Org's core.
  141. *** Support fontification of inline export snippets
  142. See [[msg:87im57fh8j.fsf@gmail.com][this thread]].
  143. *** New command =org-refile-reverse= bound to =C-c C-M-w=
  144. You can now use =C-c C-M-w= to run ~org-refile-reverse~.
  145. It is almost identical to ~org-refile~, except that it temporarily
  146. toggles how ~org-reverse-note-order~ applies to the current buffer.
  147. So if ~org-refile~ would append the entry as the last entry under the
  148. target heading, ~org-refile-reverse~ will prepend it as the first
  149. entry, and vice-versa.
  150. *** Add a new ~:refile-targets~ template option
  151. When exiting capture mode via ~org-capture-refile~, the variable
  152. ~org-refile-targets~ will be temporarily bound to the value of this
  153. template option.
  154. *** New startup options =#+startup: show<n>levels=
  155. These startup options complement the existing =overview=, =content=,
  156. =showall=, =showeverything= with a way to start the document with n
  157. levels shown, where n goes from 2 to 5.
  158. Example:
  159. : #+startup: show3levels
  160. *** New =u= table formula flag to enable Calc units simplification mode
  161. A new =u= mode flag for Calc formulas in Org tables has been added to
  162. enable Calc units simplification mode.
  163. *** Support exporting DOI links
  164. Org now supports export for DOI links, through its new =ol-doi.el=
  165. library. For backward compatibility, it is loaded by default.
  166. *** LaTeX attribute ~:float~ now passes through arbitrary values
  167. LaTeX users are able to define arbitrary float types, e.g. with the
  168. float package. The Org mode LaTeX exporter is now able to process and
  169. export arbitrary float types. The user is responsible for ensuring
  170. that Org mode configures LaTeX to process any new float type.
  171. *** Support verse blocks in LaTeX export
  172. The LaTeX export back-end accepts four attributes for verse blocks:
  173. =:lines=, =:center=, =:versewidth= and =:latexcode=. The three first
  174. require the external LaTeX package =verse.sty=, wich is an extension
  175. of the standard LaTeX environment. The purpose of these attributes is
  176. explained below.
  177. *** Support quote blocks in LaTeX export
  178. The LaTeX export back-end accepts two attributes for quote blocks:
  179. =:environment=, for an arbitrary quoting environment (the default
  180. value is that of =org-latex-default-quote-environment=: ="quote"=) and
  181. =:options=.
  182. *** =org-set-tags-command= selects tags from ~org-global-tags-completion-table~
  183. Let ~org-set-tags-command~ TAB fast tag completion interface complete
  184. tags including from both buffer local and user defined persistent
  185. global list (~org-tag-alist~ and ~org-tag-persistent-alist~). Now
  186. option ~org-complete-tags-always-offer-all-agenda-tags~ is honored.
  187. *** Clocktable option =:formula %= now shows the per-file time percentages
  188. This change only has an effect when multiple files are contributing to
  189. a given clocktable (such as when =:scope agenda= has been specified).
  190. The existing behavior is that such tables have an extra 'File' column,
  191. and each individual file that contributes has its own summary line
  192. with the headline value '*File time*'. Those summary rows also
  193. produce a rollup time value for the file in the 'Time' column.
  194. Prior to this change, the built-in =%= formula did not produce a
  195. calculation for those per-file times in the '%' column (the relevant
  196. cells in the '%' column were blank). With this change, the percentage
  197. contribution of each individual file time to the total time is shown.
  198. The more agenda files you have, the more useful this behavior becomes.
  199. *** =ob-python.el= improvements to =:return= header argument
  200. The =:return= header argument in =ob-python= now works for session
  201. blocks as well as non-session blocks. Also, it now works with the
  202. =:epilogue= header argument -- previously, setting the =:return=
  203. header would cause the =:epilogue= to be ignored.
  204. This change allows more easily moving boilerplate out of the main code
  205. block and into the header. For example, for plotting, we need to add
  206. boilerplate to save the figure to a file and return the
  207. filename. Instead of doing this within the code block, we can now
  208. handle it through the header arguments as follows:
  209. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  210. ,#+header: :var fname="/home/jack/tmp/plot.svg"
  211. ,#+header: :epilogue plt.savefig(fname)
  212. ,#+header: :return fname
  213. ,#+begin_src python :results value file
  214. import matplotlib, numpy
  215. import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  216. fig=plt.figure(figsize=(4,2))
  217. x=numpy.linspace(-15,15)
  218. plt.plot(numpy.sin(x)/x)
  219. fig.tight_layout()
  220. ,#+end_src
  221. ,#+RESULTS:
  222. [[file:/home/jack/tmp/plot.svg]]
  223. #+END_SRC
  224. As another example, we can use =:return= with the external [[https://pypi.org/project/tabulate/][tabulate]]
  225. package, to convert pandas Dataframes into orgmode tables:
  226. #+begin_src org
  227. ,#+header: :prologue from tabulate import tabulate
  228. ,#+header: :return tabulate(table, headers=table.columns, tablefmt="orgtbl")
  229. ,#+begin_src python :results value raw :session
  230. import pandas as pd
  231. table = pd.DataFrame({
  232. "a": [1,2,3],
  233. "b": [4,5,6]
  234. })
  235. ,#+end_src
  236. ,#+RESULTS:
  237. | | a | b |
  238. |---+---+---|
  239. | 0 | 1 | 4 |
  240. | 1 | 2 | 5 |
  241. | 2 | 3 | 6 |
  242. #+end_src
  243. *** Async session evaluation
  244. The =:async= header argument can be used for asynchronous evaluation
  245. in session blocks for certain languages.
  246. Currently, async evaluation is supported in Python. There is also
  247. functionality to implement async evaluation in other languages that
  248. use comint, but this needs to be done on a per-language basis.
  249. By default, async evaluation is disabled unless the =:async= header
  250. argument is present. You can also set =:async no= to force it off
  251. (for example if you've set =:async= in a property drawer).
  252. Async evaluation is disabled during export.
  253. ** Miscellaneous
  254. *** =org-bibtex= includes =doi= and =url= entries when exporting to BiBTeX
  255. =doi= and =url= entries have been made optional for some publication
  256. types and will be exported if present for those types.
  257. *** Missing or empty placeholders in "eval" macros are now =nil=
  258. They used to be the empty string.
  259. *** =org-goto-first-child= now works before first heading
  260. When point is before first heading =org-goto-first-child= will move
  261. point to the first child heading, or return nil if no heading exist
  262. in buffer. This is in line with the fact that everything before first
  263. heading is regarded as outline level 0, i.e. the parent level of all
  264. headings in the buffer.
  265. Previously =org-goto-first-child= would do nothing before first
  266. heading, except return nil.
  267. *** Faces of all the heading text elements now conform to the headline face
  268. In the past, faces of todo keywords, emphasised text, tags, and
  269. priority cookies inherited =default= face. The resulting headline
  270. fontification was not always consistent, as discussed in [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2020-09/msg00331.html][this bug
  271. report]]. Now, the relevant faces adapt to face used to fontify the
  272. current headline level.
  273. Users who prefer to keep the old behaviour should change their face
  274. customisation explicitly stating that =default= face is inherited.
  275. Example of old face customisation:
  276. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  277. (setq org-todo-keyword-faces '(("TODO"
  278. :background "chocolate"
  279. :height 0.75)))
  280. #+end_src
  281. To preserve the old behaviour the above customisation should be
  282. changed to
  283. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  284. (setq org-todo-keyword-faces '(("TODO"
  285. :inherit default
  286. :background "chocolate"
  287. :height 0.75)))
  288. #+end_src
  289. *** Storing ID-links before first heading uses title as description
  290. Storing links to files using ~org-store-link~ (=<C-c l>=) when
  291. ~org-id-link-to-org-use-id~ is not nil will now store the title as
  292. description of the link, if available. If no title exists it falls
  293. back to the filename as before.
  294. *** Change in =org-tags-expand= signature
  295. The function does not allow for a third optional parameter anymore.
  296. *** LaTeX environment =#+results= are now removed
  297. If a babel src block produces a raw LaTeX environment, it will now be
  298. recognised as a result, and so replaced when re-evaluated.
  299. *** Tag completion now uses =completing-read-multiple=
  300. Tag completion now uses =completing-read-multiple= with a simple
  301. completion table, which should allow better interoperability with
  302. custom completion functions.
  303. * Version 9.4
  304. ** Incompatible changes
  305. *** Possibly broken internal file links: please check and fix
  306. A bug has been affecting internal links to headlines, like
  307. : [[*Headline][A link to a headline]]
  308. Storing a link to a headline may have been broken in your setup and
  309. those links may appear as
  310. : [[*TODO Headline][A link to a headline]]
  311. Following the link above will result in an error: the TODO keyword
  312. should not be part of internal file links.
  313. You can use the following command to fix links in an Org buffer:
  314. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  315. (defun org-fix-links ()
  316. "Fix ill-formatted internal links.
  317. E.g. replace [[*TODO Headline][headline]] by [[*Headline][headline]].
  318. Go through the buffer and ask for the replacement."
  319. (interactive)
  320. (visible-mode 1)
  321. (save-excursion
  322. (goto-char (point-min))
  323. (let ((regexp (format "\\[\\[\\*%s\\s-+"
  324. (regexp-opt org-todo-keywords-1 t))))
  325. (while (re-search-forward regexp nil t)
  326. (when (and (save-excursion
  327. (goto-char (match-beginning 0))
  328. (looking-at-p org-link-bracket-re))
  329. (y-or-n-p "Fix link (remove TODO keyword)? "))
  330. (replace-match "[[*")))))
  331. (visible-mode -1))
  332. #+end_src
  333. *** Calling conventions changes when opening or exporting custom links
  334. This changes affects export back-ends, and libraries providing new
  335. link types.
  336. Function used in ~:follow~ link parameter is required to accept a
  337. second argument. Likewise, function used in ~:export~ parameter needs
  338. to accept a fourth argument. See ~org-link-set-parameters~ for
  339. details.
  340. Eventually, the function ~org-export-custom-protocol-maybe~ is now
  341. called with a fourth argument. Even though the 3-arguments definition
  342. is still supported, at least for now, we encourage back-end developers
  343. to switch to the new signature.
  344. *** Python session return values must be top-level expression statements
  345. Python blocks with ~:session :results value~ header arguments now only
  346. return a value if the last line is a top-level expression statement.
  347. Also, when a None value is returned, "None" will be printed under
  348. "#+RESULTS:", as it already did with ~:results value~ for non-session
  349. blocks.
  350. *** In HTML export, change on how outline-container-* is set
  351. When the headline has a =CUSTOM_ID=, use this custom id to build the
  352. div id. For example, if you have =:CUSTOM_ID: my-headline= then the
  353. resulting <div> will be ~<div id="outline-container-my-headline">~.
  354. You may want to check whether your HTML files are rendered differently
  355. after this change.
  356. *** New keybinding =<C-c C-TAB>= for ~org-force-cycle-archived~
  357. ~org-force-cycle-archived~ used to be associated with =<C-TAB>= but
  358. this keybinding is used in Emacs for navigating tabs in Emacs. The
  359. new keybinding is =<C-c C-TAB>=.
  360. ** New default settings for some options
  361. These options now default to =t=:
  362. - ~org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~
  363. - ~org-fontify-done-headline~
  364. - ~org-src-tab-acts-natively~
  365. You may want to read the docstrings of these options to understand the
  366. consequences of this change.
  367. Also, ~org-startup-folded~ now defaults to ~showeverything~.
  368. ** New features
  369. *** =RET= and =C-j= now obey ~electric-indent-mode~
  370. Since Emacs 24.4, ~electric-indent-mode~ is enabled by default. In
  371. most major modes, this causes =RET= to reindent the current line and
  372. indent the new line, and =C-j= to insert a newline without indenting.
  373. Org mode now obeys this minor mode: when ~electric-indent-mode~ is
  374. enabled, and point is neither in a table nor on a timestamp or a link:
  375. - =RET= (bound to ~org-return~) reindents the current line and indents
  376. the new line;
  377. - =C-j= (bound to the new command ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~)
  378. merely inserts a newline.
  379. To get the previous behaviour back, disable ~electric-indent-mode~
  380. explicitly:
  381. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  382. (add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (electric-indent-local-mode -1)))
  383. #+end_src
  384. Alternatively, if you wish to keep =RET= as the "smart-return" key,
  385. but dislike Org's default indentation of sections, you may prefer to
  386. customize ~org-adapt-indentation~ to either nil or =headline-data=.
  387. *** New allowed value for ~org-adapt-indentation~
  388. ~org-adapt-indentation~ now accepts a new value, =headline-data=.
  389. When set to this value, Org will only adapt indentation of headline
  390. data lines, such as planning/clock lines and property/logbook drawers.
  391. Also, with this setting, =org-indent-mode= will keep these data lines
  392. correctly aligned with the headline above.
  393. *** Looping agenda commands over headlines
  394. ~org-agenda-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~ allows you to loop
  395. agenda commands over the active region.
  396. When set to =t= (the default), loop over all headlines. When set to
  397. ='start-level=, loop over headlines with the same level as the first
  398. headline in the region. When set to a string, loop over lines
  399. matching this regular expression.
  400. *** New minor mode ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  401. Turn on the display of the first data row of the table at point in the
  402. window header line when this first row is not visible anymore in the
  403. buffer.
  404. You can activate this minor mode by default by setting the option
  405. ~org-table-header-line-p~ to =t=. You can also change the face for
  406. the header line by customizing the ~org-table-header~ face.
  407. *** New minor mode ~org-list-checkbox-radio-mode~
  408. When this minor mode is on, checkboxes behave as radio buttons: if a
  409. checkbox is turned on, other checkboxes at the same level are turned
  410. off.
  411. If you want to occasionally toggle a checkbox as a radio button
  412. without turning this minor mode on, you can use =<C-c C-x C-r>= to
  413. call ~org-toggle-radio-button~.
  414. You can also add =#+ATTR_ORG: :radio t= right before the list to tell
  415. Org to use radio buttons for this list only.
  416. *** Numeric priorities are now allowed (up to 65)
  417. You can now set ~org-priority-highest/lowest/default~ to integers to
  418. use numeric priorities globally or set, for example
  419. #+PRIORITIES: 1 10 5
  420. to define a buffer-local range and default for priorities. Priority
  421. commands should work as usual. You cannot use numbers superior to 64
  422. for numeric priorities, as it would clash with priorities like [#A]
  423. where the "A" is internally converted to its numeric value of 65.
  424. *** Property drawers allowed before first headline
  425. Property drawers are now allowed before the first headline.
  426. Org mode is moving more towards making things before the first
  427. headline behave just as if it was at outline level 0. Inheritance for
  428. properties will work also for this level. In other words: defining
  429. things in a property drawer before the first headline will make them
  430. "inheritable" for all headlines.
  431. *** Refinement in window behavior on exiting Org source buffer
  432. After editing a source block, Org will restore the window layout when
  433. ~org-src-window-setup~ is set to a value that modifies the layout.
  434. *** Display remote inline images
  435. Org now knows how to display remote images inline.
  436. Whether the images are actually displayed is controlled by the new
  437. option ~org-display-remote-inline-images~.
  438. *** New option to resolve open clock at a provided time
  439. ~org-resolve-clocks~ now has a `t' option, which works just like the
  440. `k' option, but the user specifies a time of day, not a number of
  441. minutes.
  442. *** New step value =semimonth= accepted for clock tables
  443. *** Allow text rescaling in column view
  444. You can now use =C-x C-+= in column view: the columns face size will
  445. increase or decrease, together with the column header size.
  446. *** New startup option =#+startup: num=
  447. When this startup option is set, display headings as numerated.
  448. Use =#+startup: nonum= to turn this off.
  449. *** New tool for custom links
  450. Org provides a new tool ~org-link-open-as-file~, useful when defining
  451. new link types similar to "file"-type links. See docstring for
  452. details.
  453. *** New optional numeric argument for ~org-return~
  454. In situations where ~org-return~ calls ~newline~, multiple newlines
  455. can now be inserted with this prefix argument.
  456. *** New source code block header argument =:file-mode=
  457. Source code block header argument =:file-mode= can set file
  458. permissions if =:file= argument is provided.
  459. *** =ob-C.el= allows the inclusion of non-system header files
  460. In C and C++ blocks, ~:includes~ arguments that do not start with a
  461. ~<~ character will now be formatted as double-quoted ~#include~
  462. statements.
  463. *** =ob-clojure.el= supports inf-clojure.el and ClojureScript evaluation
  464. You can now set ~(setq org-babel-clojure-backend 'inf-clojure)~ and
  465. evaluate Clojure source blocks using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/inf-clojure][inf-clojure]]. With a header
  466. argument like =:alias "alias"= the Clojure REPL will boot with
  467. =clojure -Aalias=. Otherwise Clojure will boot with =lein=, =boot= or
  468. =tools.deps=, depending on whether the current directory contains a
  469. =project.clj=, =build.boot= or =deps.edn=, falling back on
  470. ~inf-clojure-generic-cmd~ in case no such file is present.
  471. Also, when using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/cider][cider]], you can now use =#+begin_src clojurescript= to
  472. execute ClojureScript code from Org files. Note that this works only
  473. if your Org file is associated with a cider session that knows how to
  474. run ClojureScript code. A bare =lein repl= session outside of a
  475. directory configured for ClojureScript will /not/ work.
  476. *** =ob-java.el= supports Java command line arguments
  477. Babel Java blocks recognize header argument =:cmdargs= and pass its
  478. value in call to =java=.
  479. *** =ob-screen.el= now accepts =:screenrc= header argument
  480. Screen blocks now recognize the =:screenrc= header argument and pass
  481. its value to the screen command via the "-c" option. The default
  482. remains =/dev/null= (i.e. a clean screen session)
  483. *** =ob-plantuml=: now supports using PlantUML executable to generate diagrams
  484. Set =org-plantuml-exec-mode= to ='plantuml= in order to use the
  485. executable instead of JAR. When using an executable it is also
  486. possible to configure executable location as well as arguments via:
  487. =org-plantuml-executable-path= and =org-plantuml-executable-args=.
  488. ** New commands
  489. *** ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  490. Turn on a minor mode to display the first data row of the table at
  491. point in the header-line when the beginning of the table is invisible.
  492. *** ~org-agenda-ctrl-c-ctrl-c~
  493. Hitting =<C-c C-c>= in an agenda view now calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~.
  494. *** ~org-hide-entry~
  495. This command is the counterpart of ~org-show-entry~.
  496. *** ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~
  497. =<C-c C-c>= bound to ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~ replaces the
  498. recent ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~. Tag setting is still
  499. possible via column view value edit or with =<C-c C-q>=.
  500. *** ~org-datetree-find-month-create~
  501. Find or create a month entry for a date.
  502. ** New options and settings
  503. *** New option ~org-html-prefer-user-labels~
  504. When non-nil, use =NAME= affiliated keyword, or raw target values, to
  505. generate anchor's ID. Otherwise, consistently use internal naming
  506. scheme.
  507. =CUSTOM_ID= values are still always used, when available.
  508. *** New option for using tabs in ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  509. Choosing ~other-tab~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~ will open the
  510. agenda view in a new tab. This will work with versions of Emacs since
  511. 27.1 when ~tab-bar-mode~ was introduced.
  512. *** New option ~org-table-header-line-p~
  513. Setting this option to =t= will activate ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  514. in org-mode buffers.
  515. *** New option ~org-startup-numerated~
  516. When this option is =t=, Org files will start using ~(org-num-mode 1)~
  517. and headings will be visually numerated.
  518. You can turn this on/off on a per-file basis with =#+startup: num= or
  519. =#+startup: nonum=.
  520. *** New option ~org-clock-auto-clockout-timer~
  521. When this option is set to a number and the user configuration
  522. contains =(org-clock-auto-clockout-insinuate)=, Org will clock out the
  523. currently clocked in task after that number of seconds of idle time.
  524. This is useful when you often forget to clock out before being idle
  525. and don't want to have to manually set the clocking time to take into
  526. account.
  527. *** New option to group captured datetime entries by month
  528. A new `:tree-type month' option was added to org-capture-templates to
  529. group new datetime entries by month.
  530. *** New option to show source buffers using "plain" display-buffer
  531. There is a new option ~plain~ to ~org-src-window-setup~ to show source
  532. buffers using ~display-buffer~. This allows users to control how
  533. source buffers are displayed by modifying ~display-buffer-alist~ or
  534. ~display-buffer-base-action~.
  535. *** New option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~
  536. Archiving a subtree used to always save the target archive buffer.
  537. Commit [[https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode/commit/b186d1d7][b186d1d7]] changed this behavior by always not saving the target
  538. buffer, because batch archiving from agenda could take too much time.
  539. This new option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~ defaults to the
  540. value =from-org= so that archiving a subtree will save the target
  541. buffer when done from an org-mode buffer, but not from the agenda.
  542. You can also set this option to =t= or to =from-agenda=.
  543. *** New option ~org-show-notification-timeout~
  544. This option will add a timeout to notifications.
  545. *** New option ~org-latex-to-html-convert-command~
  546. This new option allows you to convert a LaTeX fragment directly into
  547. HTML.
  548. *** New option ~org-babel-shell-results-defaults-to-output~
  549. By default, source code blocks are executed in "functional mode": it
  550. means that the results of executing them are the value of their last
  551. statement (see [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Results-of-Evaluation.html][the documentation]].)
  552. The value of a shell script's execution is its exit code. But most
  553. users expect the results of executing a shell script to be its output,
  554. not its exit code.
  555. So we introduced this option, that you can set to nil if you want to
  556. stick using ~:results value~ as the implicit header.
  557. In all Babel libraries, the absence of a ~:results~ header should
  558. produce the same result than setting ~:results value~, unless there is
  559. an option to explicitly create an exception.
  560. See [[msg:CA+A2iZaziAfMeGpBqL6qGrzrWEVvLvC0DUw++T4gCF3NGuW-DQ@mail.gmail.com][this thread]] for more context.
  561. *** New option in ~org-attach-store-link-p~
  562. ~org-attach-store-link-p~ has a new option to store a file link to the
  563. attachment.
  564. *** New option ~org-fontify-todo-headline~
  565. This feature is the same as ~org-fontify-done-headline~, but for TODO
  566. headlines instead. This allows you to distinguish TODO headlines from
  567. normal headlines. The face can be customized via ~org-headline-todo~.
  568. *** New default value for ~org-file-apps~
  569. The new value uses Emacs as the application for opening directory.
  570. *** New hook ~org-agenda-filter-hook~
  571. Functions in this hook are run after ~org-agenda-filter~ is called.
  572. ** Removed or renamed functions and variables
  573. *** Deprecated ~org-flag-drawer~ function
  574. Use ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ instead.
  575. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-maybe~ function
  576. Use ~org-hide-block-toggle~ instead.
  577. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-all~ function
  578. This function was not used in the code base, and has no clear use
  579. either. It has been marked for future removal. Please contact the
  580. mailing list if you use this function.
  581. *** Deprecated ~org-return-indent~ function
  582. In Elisp code, use ~(org-return t)~ instead. Interactively, =C-j= is
  583. now bound to ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~, which indents the new line
  584. when ~electric-indent-mode~ is disabled.
  585. *** Removed ~org-maybe-keyword-time-regexp~
  586. The variable was not used in the code base.
  587. *** Removed ~org-export-special-keywords~
  588. The variable was not used in the code base.
  589. *** Renamed ~org-at-property-block-p~
  590. The new name is ~org-at-property-drawer-p~, which is less confusing.
  591. *** Renamed ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~
  592. See [[*~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~]].
  593. *** Renamed priority options
  594. From ~org-lowest-priority~ to ~org-priority-lowest~.
  595. From ~org-default-priority~ to ~org-priority-default~.
  596. From ~org-highest-priority~ to ~org-priority-highest~.
  597. From ~org-enable-priority-commands~ to ~org-priority-enable-commands~.
  598. From ~org-show-priority~ to ~org-priority-show~.
  599. ** Miscellaneous
  600. *** =ob-screen.el= now respects screen =:session= name
  601. Screen babel session are now named based on the =:session= header
  602. argument (defaults to ~default~).
  603. Previously all session names had ~org-babel-session-~ prepended.
  604. *** Forward/backward paragraph functions in line with the rest of Emacs
  605. ~org-forward-paragraph~ and ~org-backward-paragraph~, bound to
  606. ~<C-UP>~ and ~<C-DOWN>~ functions mimic more closely behaviour of
  607. ~forward-paragraph~ and ~backward-paragraph~ functions when
  608. available.
  609. They also accept an optional argument for multiple calls.
  610. See their docstring for details.
  611. *** ~org-table-to-lisp~ no longer checks if point is at a table
  612. The caller is now responsible for the check. It can use, e.g.,
  613. ~org-at-table-p~.
  614. The function is also much more efficient than it used to be, even on
  615. very large tables.
  616. *** New function ~org-collect-keywords~
  617. *** Drawers' folding use an API similar to block's
  618. Tooling for folding drawers interactively or programmatically is now
  619. on par with block folding. In particular, ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~,
  620. a new function, is the central place for drawer folding.
  621. *** Duration can be read and written in compact form
  622. ~org-duration-to-minutes~ understands =1d3h5min= as a duration,
  623. whereas ~org-duration-from-minutes~ can output this compact form if
  624. the duration format contains the symbol ~compact~.
  625. *** C-n, C-p, SPC and DEL in agenda commands dispatch window
  626. You can now use =<C-n>=, =<C-p>=, =<SPC>= and =<DEL>= key to scroll up
  627. and down the agenda and attach dispatch window.
  628. *** =<C-c C-c>= in agenda calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~
  629. Both =<C-c C-q>= and =<C-c C-c>= set the tags of the headline in the
  630. Org buffer. Both keybindings are now available from the agenda too.
  631. *** Allow to use an empty HTML extension
  632. Using =(setq org-html-extension "")= or setting the HTML extension in
  633. any fashion will produce the expected output, with no trailing period
  634. to the resulting HTML file.
  635. *** Handle repeated tasks with =.+= type and hours step
  636. A task using a =.+= repeater and hours step is repeated starting from
  637. now. E.g.,
  638. #+begin_example
  639. ,,** TODO Wash my hands
  640. DEADLINE: <2019-04-05 08:00 Sun .+1h>
  641. Marking this DONE shifts the date to exactly one hour from now.
  642. #+end_example
  643. *** The format of equation reference in HTML export can now be specified
  644. By default, HTML (via MathJax) and LaTeX export equation references
  645. using different commands. LaTeX must use ~\ref{%s}~ because it is used
  646. for all labels; however, HTML (via MathJax) uses ~\eqref{%s}~ for
  647. equations producing inconsistent output. New option
  648. ~org-html-equation-reference-format~ sets the command used in HTML
  649. export.
  650. *** =ob-haskell.el= supports compilation with =:compile= header argument
  651. By default, Haskell blocks are interpreted. By adding =:compile yes=
  652. to a Haskell source block, it will be compiled, executed and the
  653. results will be displayed.
  654. *** Support for ~org-edit-special~ with LaTeX fragments
  655. Calling ~org-edit-special~ on an inline LaTeX fragment calls a new
  656. function, ~org-edit-latex-fragment~. This functions in a comparable
  657. manner to editing inline source blocks, bringing up a minibuffer set
  658. to LaTeX mode. The math-mode deliminators are read only.
  659. *** ~org-capture-current-plist~ is now accessible during ~org-capture-mode-hook~
  660. *** New =org-refile.el= file
  661. Org refile variables and functions have been moved to a new file.
  662. *** The end of a 7 years old bug
  663. This bug [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-08/msg00072.html][originally reported]] by Matt Lundin and investigated by Andrew
  664. Hyatt has been fixed. Thanks to both of them.
  665. * Version 9.3
  666. ** Incompatible changes
  667. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  668. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  669. bracket links.
  670. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  671. to the following rules:
  672. 1. All =[= and =]= characters in the URI must be escaped;
  673. 2. Every =\= character preceding either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  674. 3. Every =\= character at the end of the URI must be escaped.
  675. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  676. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  677. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  678. syntax:
  679. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  680. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  681. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  682. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  683. is non-nil."
  684. (interactive "P")
  685. (org-with-point-at 1
  686. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  687. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  688. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  689. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  690. (= (match-beginning 0)
  691. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  692. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  693. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  694. (uri-end (save-excursion
  695. (goto-char uri-start)
  696. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  697. (match-beginning 0)))
  698. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  699. (when (or no-query
  700. (y-or-n-p
  701. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  702. uri)))
  703. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  704. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  705. #+end_src
  706. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  707. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  708. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  709. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  710. group 3.
  711. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  712. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  713. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  714. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  715. behavior will not happen automatically.
  716. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  717. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  718. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  719. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  720. it is.
  721. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  722. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  723. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  724. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  725. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  726. You can get the old behavior back with the following:
  727. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  728. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  729. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  730. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  731. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  732. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  733. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  734. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  735. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  736. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  737. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  738. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  739. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  740. since now it's implicitly always true.
  741. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  742. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  743. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  744. auto-commit attachments to git:
  745. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  746. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  747. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  748. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  749. ** New features
  750. *** New option to wrap source code lines in HTML export
  751. When new option ~html-wrap-src-lines~ (with variable
  752. ~org-html-wrap-src-lines~) is non-nil, HTML export wraps source code
  753. lines in HTML ~code~ elements.
  754. *** New option to handle schedules and deadlines in iCalendar export
  755. Export ignore done tasks with a deadline when
  756. ~org-icalendar-use-deadline~ contains ~event-if-todo-not-done~.
  757. Likewise, scheduled done tasks are also ignored when
  758. ~org-icalendar-use-scheduled~ contains the same symbol.
  759. *** Add ~split-window-right~ option for src block edit window placement
  760. Given the increasing popularity of wide screen monitors, splitting
  761. horizontally may make more sense than splitting vertically. An
  762. option, ~split-window-right~, to request horizontal splitting has been
  763. added to ~org-src-window-setup~.
  764. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  765. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  766. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  767. and extra options have been added as well.
  768. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  769. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  770. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  771. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  772. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  773. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  774. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  775. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  776. account).
  777. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  778. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  779. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  780. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  781. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favor of the shorter
  782. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  783. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  784. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  785. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  786. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  787. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  788. was the behavior before this change.
  789. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  790. precedence and will be used.
  791. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  792. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  793. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  794. your own function and add it to the beginning of
  795. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~list~ if you want to customize the ID
  796. based folder structure.
  797. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  798. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  799. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  800. removed.
  801. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  802. (defun org-update-attach-properties ()
  803. "Change properties for Org-Attach."
  804. (interactive)
  805. (org-with-point-at 1
  806. (while (outline-next-heading)
  807. (let ((DIR (org--property-local-values "ATTACH_DIR" nil)))
  808. (when DIR
  809. (org-set-property "DIR" (car DIR))
  810. (org-delete-property "ATTACH_DIR"))))
  811. (org-delete-property-globally "ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT")))
  812. #+end_src
  813. For those who hate breaking changes, even though the changes are made
  814. to clean things up; fear not. ATTACH_DIR will still continue to work.
  815. It's just not documented any longer. When you get the chance, run the
  816. code above to clean things up anyway!
  817. **** New hooks
  818. Two hooks are added to org-attach:
  819. - org-attach-after-change-hook
  820. - org-attach-open-hook
  821. They are added mostly for internal restructuring purposes, but can
  822. ofc. be used for other things as well.
  823. *** New link-type: Attachment
  824. Attachment-links are now first-class citizens. They mimic file-links
  825. in everything they do but use the existing attachment-folder as a base
  826. when expanding the links. Both =DIR= and =ID= properties are used to
  827. try to resolve the links, in exactly the same way as Org-Attach uses
  828. those properties.
  829. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  830. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  831. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  832. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  833. numbered list to a lettered list.
  834. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  835. You can add new dynamic blocks with function
  836. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All such dynamic blocks can be used by
  837. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  838. *** Babel
  839. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  840. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  841. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  842. parameter.
  843. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  844. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  845. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  846. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  847. changes in the buffer.
  848. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  849. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  850. a headline.
  851. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  852. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  853. ~:caption~.
  854. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  855. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  856. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  857. attachment directory.
  858. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  859. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  860. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  861. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  862. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  863. interpreted as publicly visible, accessible to a specific group, and
  864. private respectively.
  865. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  866. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  867. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  868. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  869. system than the main Org document. For example:
  870. #+begin_example
  871. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  872. #+end_example
  873. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  874. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  875. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  876. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  877. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  878. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  879. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  880. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  881. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  882. LaTeX font locking.
  883. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learned to shift backward in time
  884. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  885. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  886. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  887. days in the past.
  888. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  889. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  890. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  891. This is a function for convenience.
  892. *** New parameter for SQL Babel blocks: ~:dbconnection~
  893. The new parameter ~:dbconnection~ allows to specify a connection name
  894. in a SQL block header: this name is used to look up connection
  895. parameters in ~sql-connection-alist~.
  896. *** New =:scale= attribute supported by LaTeX exporters
  897. The builtin "latex" exporters now accept and use a =:scale= attribute,
  898. which scales an image by a given factor.
  899. This attribute is wrapped around the =scale= parameter of LaTeX's
  900. =\includegraphics= (bitmap images) or a TiKZ's =\scalebox=.
  901. Therefore, its value should be some string palatable to LaTeX as
  902. a positive float Its default value is an empty string (i.e. disabled).
  903. This attribute overrides the =:width= and =:height= attributes.
  904. #+begin_example
  905. ,#+name: Beastie
  906. ,#+caption: I think I saw this curious horse already, but where ?
  907. ,#+LATEX_ATTR: :scale 2
  908. [[https://orgmode.org/img/org-mode-unicorn-logo.png]]
  909. #+end_example
  910. *** Allow specifying the target for a table of contents
  911. The =+TOC= keyword now accepts a =:target:= attribute that specifies
  912. the headline to use for making the table of contents.
  913. #+begin_example
  914. ,* Target
  915. :PROPERTIES:
  916. :CUSTOM_ID: TargetSection
  917. :END:
  918. ,** Heading A
  919. ,** Heading B
  920. ,* Another section
  921. ,#+TOC: headlines 1 :target "#TargetSection"
  922. #+end_example
  923. ** New functions
  924. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  925. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  926. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  927. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  928. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  929. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  930. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  931. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  932. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  933. ** Removed functions and variables
  934. *** Removed Org Drill
  935. You can install it back from MELPA.
  936. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  937. *** ~org-capture-insert-template-here~
  938. *** ~org-attach-directory~
  939. It has been deprecated in favor of ~org-attach-id-dir~ which is less
  940. ambiguous given the restructured org-attach.
  941. *** ~org-enable-fixed-width-editor~
  942. This variable was not used through the code base.
  943. ** Miscellaneous
  944. *** Change signature for ~org-list-to-subtree~
  945. The function now accepts the level of the subtree as an optional
  946. argument. It no longer deduces it from the current level.
  947. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  948. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  949. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  950. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  951. *** ~org-table-copy-down~ supports patterns
  952. When ~org-table-copy-increment~ is non-nil, it is now possible to
  953. increment fields like =A1=, or =0A=, i.e., any string prefixed or
  954. suffixed with a whole number.
  955. *** No more special indentation for description items
  956. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  957. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  958. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  959. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  960. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  961. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  962. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  963. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  964. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  965. interface.
  966. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  967. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  968. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  969. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  970. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  971. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  972. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  973. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  974. *** New variable ~org-attach-commands~
  975. This variable makes it possible to customize the list of commands for
  976. the attachment dispatcher.
  977. *** New ID method based on timestamp
  978. If one chooses, it is now possible to create ID's based on timestamp
  979. (ISO8601) instead of UUID by changing org-id-method to ts.
  980. For an improved folder structure when using timestamp as ID, make sure
  981. to promote ~org-attach-id-ts-folder-format~ to the first element of
  982. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function-list~ in your configuration at the
  983. same time.
  984. *** New customization: ~org-id-locations-relative~
  985. New customization to make the persisting of org-id-locations between
  986. sessions to store links to files as relative instead of absolute. The
  987. links will be stored as relative to the path of org-id-locations-file.
  988. *** ~org-ctrl-c-tab~ is functional before the first headline
  989. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  990. Also fold everything below the chosen level. Former behavior was to
  991. leave unfolded subtrees unfolded.
  992. *** ~org-kill-note-or-show-branches~ is functional before the first headline
  993. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  994. *** Respect narrowing when agenda command is restricted to buffer
  995. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts the column at point position
  996. Before, the new column was inserted to the right of the column at
  997. point position.
  998. *** Table column deletion now consistent with row deletion
  999. Point stays in the column at deletion, except when deleting the
  1000. rightmost column.
  1001. * Version 9.2
  1002. ** Incompatible changes
  1003. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  1004. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  1005. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  1006. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  1007. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  1008. to use =orgalist.el=, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  1009. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  1010. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  1011. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  1012. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  1013. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  1014. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  1015. you probably need to update it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  1016. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  1017. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  1018. : (require 'org-tempo)
  1019. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  1020. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  1021. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  1022. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  1023. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  1024. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  1025. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  1026. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  1027. unique, Noweb reference.
  1028. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1029. ,#+NAME: foo
  1030. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1031. 1
  1032. ,#+END_SRC
  1033. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  1034. 2
  1035. ,#+END_SRC
  1036. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  1037. <<foo>>
  1038. ,#+END_SRC
  1039. #+END_SRC
  1040. should become
  1041. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1042. ,#+NAME: foo
  1043. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  1044. 1
  1045. ,#+END_SRC
  1046. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  1047. 2
  1048. ,#+END_SRC
  1049. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  1050. <<bar>>
  1051. ,#+END_SRC
  1052. #+END_SRC
  1053. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  1054. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  1055. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  1056. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  1057. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  1058. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  1059. :
  1060. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  1061. Check the full docstring for more.
  1062. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  1063. Here is the new docstring:
  1064. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  1065. :
  1066. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  1067. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  1068. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  1069. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  1070. : variables is set.
  1071. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  1072. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  1073. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  1074. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  1075. examples:
  1076. #+begin_example
  1077. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  1078. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  1079. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  1080. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  1081. #+end_example
  1082. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  1083. #+begin_example
  1084. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  1085. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  1086. #+end_example
  1087. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  1088. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  1089. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  1090. aligning.
  1091. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  1092. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  1093. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1094. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  1095. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1096. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  1097. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  1098. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  1099. local tags. In order to get the old behavior back, you can use:
  1100. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  1101. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  1102. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  1103. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  1104. code-point.
  1105. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  1106. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  1107. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  1108. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  1109. dedicated column.
  1110. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  1111. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  1112. ** New features
  1113. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  1114. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  1115. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  1116. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  1117. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  1118. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  1119. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  1120. #+begin_src clojure :session
  1121. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  1122. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  1123. #+end_src
  1124. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  1125. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  1126. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  1127. #+begin_example
  1128. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  1129. wget -c "https://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  1130. ,#+end_src
  1131. ,#+results:
  1132. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  1133. #+end_example
  1134. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  1135. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  1136. console.log("stardiviner")
  1137. #+end_src
  1138. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  1139. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  1140. console.log("stardiviner")
  1141. #+end_src
  1142. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  1143. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  1144. console.log("stardiviner")
  1145. #+end_src
  1146. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  1147. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  1148. add a label to the rendered equation.
  1149. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  1150. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  1151. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  1152. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  1153. manual for details.
  1154. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  1155. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  1156. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  1157. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1158. ,* Top [1/2]
  1159. ,** DONE Completed
  1160. ,** TODO Working
  1161. #+END_SRC
  1162. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  1163. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  1164. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  1165. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  1166. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  1167. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  1168. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  1169. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  1170. its previous state.
  1171. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  1172. size.
  1173. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  1174. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  1175. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  1176. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1177. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  1178. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  1179. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  1180. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  1181. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  1182. prop
  1183. "0")))
  1184. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  1185. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  1186. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  1187. #+END_SRC
  1188. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  1189. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1190. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  1191. ,* All shipments
  1192. ,** Shipment 1
  1193. :PROPERTIES:
  1194. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  1195. :Bananas: 4
  1196. :END:
  1197. ,** Shipment 2
  1198. :PROPERTIES:
  1199. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  1200. :BANANAS: 7
  1201. :END:
  1202. #+END_SRC
  1203. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  1204. you should expect to see something like:
  1205. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  1206. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  1207. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  1208. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  1209. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  1210. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1211. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  1212. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1213. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  1214. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  1215. matcher.
  1216. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  1217. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1218. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  1219. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  1220. parameters. See example below.
  1221. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1222. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  1223. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  1224. select sysdate from dual;
  1225. ,#+END_SRC
  1226. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  1227. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  1228. select sysdate from dual;
  1229. ,#+END_SRC
  1230. #+END_SRC
  1231. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  1232. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  1233. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  1234. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  1235. remove it.
  1236. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  1237. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  1238. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  1239. ** New commands and functions
  1240. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  1241. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  1242. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  1243. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  1244. See docstring for details.
  1245. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  1246. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  1247. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  1248. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  1249. See docstring for details.
  1250. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  1251. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  1252. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  1253. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  1254. will go back to the widen state.
  1255. *** ~org-browse-news~
  1256. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read information
  1257. about the last major release.
  1258. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  1259. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  1260. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  1261. on the context.
  1262. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  1263. ** Removed commands and functions
  1264. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  1265. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  1266. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  1267. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  1268. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  1269. It was not used throughout the code base.
  1270. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  1271. It was not used throughout code base.
  1272. *** ~org-context-p~
  1273. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  1274. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  1275. It is no longer used in the code base.
  1276. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  1277. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  1278. ** Removed options
  1279. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  1280. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  1281. ** Miscellaneous
  1282. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  1283. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  1284. handled specially by default.
  1285. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  1286. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  1287. handled specially by default.
  1288. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  1289. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  1290. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  1291. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  1292. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  1293. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  1294. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  1295. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  1296. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  1297. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  1298. reciprocal.
  1299. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  1300. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  1301. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  1302. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  1303. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  1304. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  1305. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  1306. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  1307. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  1308. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  1309. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  1310. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  1311. rules instead of by code-point.
  1312. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  1313. * Version 9.1
  1314. ** Incompatible changes
  1315. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  1316. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  1317. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  1318. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  1319. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  1320. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  1321. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  1322. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  1323. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  1324. accordingly.
  1325. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  1326. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  1327. is to turn, e.g.,
  1328. : (file (sexp))
  1329. into
  1330. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  1331. *** Deleted contributed packages
  1332. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  1333. from the contrib/ directory.
  1334. You can now find them here :
  1335. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  1336. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  1337. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  1338. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  1339. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  1340. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  1341. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  1342. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  1343. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  1344. changes to site-map generation.
  1345. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  1346. to the following
  1347. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  1348. (lambda (entry style project)
  1349. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  1350. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  1351. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  1352. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  1353. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  1354. (t entry)))
  1355. #+END_SRC
  1356. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  1357. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  1358. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  1359. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  1360. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  1361. list as their first argument.
  1362. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  1363. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  1364. See docstring for details.
  1365. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  1366. See docstring for changes.
  1367. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  1368. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  1369. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  1370. details.
  1371. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  1372. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  1373. keywords.
  1374. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  1375. It used to return nil.
  1376. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  1377. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  1378. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  1379. MELPA repository.
  1380. ** New features
  1381. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  1382. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  1383. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  1384. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  1385. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  1386. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  1387. specified as in "Europe/London".
  1388. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  1389. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  1390. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  1391. directory to old, ID based one.
  1392. *** New Org duration library
  1393. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  1394. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  1395. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  1396. docstrings.
  1397. *** Agenda
  1398. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  1399. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  1400. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  1401. See docstring for details.
  1402. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1403. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  1404. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  1405. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  1406. the default setting.
  1407. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  1408. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  1409. directories in published site-maps.
  1410. *** Babel
  1411. **** Scheme: support for tables
  1412. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  1413. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  1414. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  1415. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  1416. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1417. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  1418. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  1419. with the content to be added.
  1420. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  1421. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  1422. before this let form.
  1423. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  1424. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  1425. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  1426. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  1427. is in seconds and if set to nil then no timeout will occur.
  1428. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  1429. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1430. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  1431. window/buffer.
  1432. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  1433. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  1434. option in the code block's header like this:
  1435. #+begin_example
  1436. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  1437. (dotimes [n 10]
  1438. (println n ".")
  1439. (Thread/sleep 500))
  1440. ,#+END_SRC
  1441. #+end_example
  1442. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  1443. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  1444. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  1445. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  1446. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  1447. =#+RESULTS= section.
  1448. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  1449. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  1450. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  1451. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  1452. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  1453. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  1454. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  1455. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  1456. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  1457. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  1458. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  1459. results in a beamer presentation.
  1460. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  1461. [[https://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
  1462. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  1463. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  1464. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  1465. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  1466. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  1467. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1468. #+begin_example
  1469. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  1470. Select * From Users
  1471. Where clue > 0
  1472. ,#+END_SRC
  1473. #+end_example
  1474. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  1475. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  1476. against HP Vertica.
  1477. 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]]
  1478. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1479. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1480. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  1481. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  1482. ,#+END_SRC
  1483. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1484. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  1485. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  1486. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  1487. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  1488. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  1489. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  1490. using ~:namespaces~:
  1491. #+begin_example
  1492. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  1493. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  1494. ,#+END_SRC
  1495. #+end_example
  1496. **** Support for Vala language
  1497. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  1498. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  1499. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  1500. 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~]]
  1501. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  1502. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  1503. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  1504. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  1505. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  1506. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  1507. *** Export
  1508. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  1509. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  1510. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  1511. contents, are now supported.
  1512. **** Add Slovenian translations
  1513. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  1514. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  1515. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  1516. details.
  1517. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  1518. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  1519. manual for details.
  1520. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  1521. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  1522. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  1523. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  1524. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  1525. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  1526. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  1527. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  1528. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  1529. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  1530. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  1531. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  1532. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  1533. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  1534. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  1535. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  1536. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  1537. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  1538. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  1539. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  1540. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  1541. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  1542. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  1543. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  1544. to the document.
  1545. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  1546. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  1547. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  1548. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  1549. ~uniquify.el~.
  1550. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  1551. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  1552. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  1553. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  1554. to ~org-file-contents~.
  1555. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  1556. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  1557. that file cache.
  1558. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  1559. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  1560. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  1561. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  1562. ** Removed functions
  1563. *** Org Timeline
  1564. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  1565. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  1566. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1567. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1568. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1569. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1570. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  1571. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1572. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  1573. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  1574. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1575. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1576. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1577. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1578. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  1579. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  1580. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1581. ** Removed options
  1582. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  1583. For an equivalent to a nil value, set ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  1584. to nil and ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to =t=.
  1585. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  1586. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  1587. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1588. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  1589. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  1590. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  1591. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  1592. equivalent to the removed format string.
  1593. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  1594. Setting it to a nil value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  1595. keys).
  1596. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  1597. The variable is now a boolean.
  1598. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  1599. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  1600. ** New functions
  1601. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  1602. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  1603. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  1604. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  1605. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  1606. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1607. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  1608. ** Miscellaneous
  1609. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  1610. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  1611. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  1612. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  1613. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  1614. *** Allow multiple columns view
  1615. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  1616. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  1617. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  1618. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  1619. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  1620. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  1621. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  1622. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  1623. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  1624. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  1625. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  1626. used to describe the time span.
  1627. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  1628. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  1629. far away in the future.
  1630. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  1631. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  1632. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  1633. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  1634. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  1635. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  1636. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  1637. See docstring for details.
  1638. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  1639. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  1640. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  1641. is now obsolete.
  1642. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  1643. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  1644. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  1645. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  1646. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  1647. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  1648. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  1649. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  1650. suitable as a default value.
  1651. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  1652. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  1653. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  1654. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are covered by
  1655. rewrite rules.
  1656. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  1657. * Version 9.0
  1658. ** Incompatible changes
  1659. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  1660. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  1661. above is suggested.
  1662. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  1663. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  1664. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  1665. our mailing list.
  1666. *** New syntax for export blocks
  1667. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  1668. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  1669. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1670. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  1671. ...
  1672. ,#+END_EXPORT
  1673. #+END_SRC
  1674. instead of
  1675. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1676. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  1677. ...
  1678. ,#+END_backend
  1679. #+END_SRC
  1680. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  1681. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1682. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  1683. #+END_SRC
  1684. becomes
  1685. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1686. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  1687. #+END_SRC
  1688. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  1689. using previous syntax:
  1690. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1691. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  1692. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1693. (interactive)
  1694. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1695. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1696. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1697. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1698. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1699. t)))
  1700. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1701. (goto-char (point-min))
  1702. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1703. (save-excursion
  1704. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  1705. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1706. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1707. (save-excursion
  1708. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1709. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1710. (forward-char)
  1711. (insert "EXPORT")
  1712. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1713. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1714. (let ((include-re
  1715. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1716. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1717. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1718. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1719. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1720. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1721. #+END_SRC
  1722. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1723. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1724. removed.
  1725. *** Footnotes changes
  1726. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1727. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1728. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1729. constructs are now unsupported.
  1730. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1731. =[fn:N]=.
  1732. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1733. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1734. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1735. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1736. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1737. exists.
  1738. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1739. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1740. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1741. is straightforward. For example
  1742. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1743. becomes
  1744. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1745. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1746. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1747. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1748. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1749. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1750. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1751. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1752. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1753. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1754. such, the following
  1755. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1756. ,* Headline
  1757. :PROPERTIES:
  1758. :exports: code
  1759. :var: a=1 b=2
  1760. :var+: c=3
  1761. :END:
  1762. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1763. should be written instead
  1764. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1765. ,* Headline
  1766. :PROPERTIES:
  1767. :header-args: :exports code
  1768. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1769. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1770. :END:
  1771. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1772. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1773. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1774. ** New features
  1775. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1776. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1777. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1778. #+begin_example
  1779. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1780. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1781. #+end_example
  1782. Old-style links such as
  1783. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1784. continue to be supported.
  1785. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1786. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1787. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1788. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1789. lists.
  1790. *** New Org linter library
  1791. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1792. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1793. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1794. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1795. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1796. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1797. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1798. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1799. *** Export
  1800. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1801. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1802. details.
  1803. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1804. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1805. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1806. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1807. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1808. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1809. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1810. for more details.
  1811. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1812. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1813. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1814. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1815. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1816. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1817. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1818. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1819. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1820. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1821. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1822. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1823. used.
  1824. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1825. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1826. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1827. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1828. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1829. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1830. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1831. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1832. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1833. (message "This is line 21")
  1834. ,#+END_SRC
  1835. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1836. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1837. (message "This is line 32")
  1838. ,#+END_SRC
  1839. #+END_SRC
  1840. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1841. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1842. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1843. export.
  1844. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1845. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1846. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1847. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1848. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1849. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1850. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1851. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1852. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1853. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1854. *** Babel
  1855. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1856. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1857. **** Support for Lua language
  1858. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1859. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1860. **** Support for Stan language
  1861. New ob-stan.el library.
  1862. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1863. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1864. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1865. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1866. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1867. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1868. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1869. that does not end in ".stan".
  1870. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1871. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1872. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1873. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1874. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1875. mandatory):
  1876. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1877. :engine oracle
  1878. :dbhost <host.com>
  1879. :dbport <1521>
  1880. :dbuser <username>
  1881. :database <database>
  1882. :dbpassword <secret>
  1883. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1884. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1885. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1886. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1887. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1888. like this:
  1889. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1890. :engine mssql
  1891. :dbhost <host.com>
  1892. :dbuser <username>
  1893. :dbpassword <secret>
  1894. :database <database>
  1895. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1896. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1897. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1898. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1899. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1900. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1901. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1902. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1903. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1904. The support for output formats of [[https://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1905. include:
  1906. All Diagrams:
  1907. - png ::
  1908. - svg ::
  1909. - eps ::
  1910. - pdf ::
  1911. - vdx ::
  1912. - txt :: ASCII art
  1913. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1914. Class Diagrams:
  1915. - xmi ::
  1916. - html ::
  1917. State Diagrams:
  1918. - scxml ::
  1919. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1920. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1921. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1922. @startuml
  1923. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1924. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1925. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1926. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1927. @enduml
  1928. #+end_src
  1929. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1930. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[https://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1931. details and setup information.
  1932. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1933. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1934. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1935. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1936. for details.
  1937. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1938. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1939. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1940. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1941. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1942. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1943. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1944. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1945. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1946. by ISO week and not by month.
  1947. For example:
  1948. : * 2015
  1949. : ** 2015-W35
  1950. : ** 2015-W36
  1951. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1952. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1953. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1954. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1955. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1956. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1957. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1958. *** Columns view
  1959. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1960. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1961. buffer unconditionally.
  1962. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1963. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1964. **** Allow custom summaries
  1965. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1966. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1967. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1968. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1969. types.
  1970. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1971. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1972. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1973. a git repository.
  1974. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1975. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1976. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1977. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1978. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1979. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1980. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1981. first footnote.
  1982. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1983. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1984. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1985. the manual for details.
  1986. *** Links are now customizable
  1987. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1988. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1989. ** New functions
  1990. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1991. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1992. *** ~org-show-children~
  1993. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1994. ** Removed functions
  1995. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1996. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1997. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1998. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1999. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  2000. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  2001. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  2002. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  2003. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  2004. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  2005. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  2006. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  2007. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  2008. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  2009. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  2010. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  2011. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  2012. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  2013. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  2014. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  2015. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  2016. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  2017. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  2018. The affected functions are:
  2019. - ~org-count~
  2020. - ~org-remove-if~
  2021. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  2022. - ~org-reduce~
  2023. - ~org-every~
  2024. - ~org-some~
  2025. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  2026. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  2027. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  2028. ** Removed options
  2029. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  2030. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  2031. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  2032. let those libraries operate.
  2033. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  2034. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  2035. plain list.
  2036. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  2037. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  2038. ** Miscellaneous
  2039. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  2040. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  2041. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  2042. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  2043. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  2044. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  2045. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  2046. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  2047. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  2048. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  2049. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  2050. Org files.
  2051. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  2052. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  2053. indentation.
  2054. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  2055. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  2056. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  2057. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  2058. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  2059. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  2060. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  2061. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  2062. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  2063. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  2064. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  2065. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  2066. to the article's original group.
  2067. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  2068. The calling convention has changed.
  2069. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  2070. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  2071. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  2072. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  2073. called with 6 parameters.
  2074. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  2075. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  2076. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  2077. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  2078. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  2079. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  2080. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  2081. the end of the string.
  2082. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  2083. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  2084. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  2085. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  2086. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  2087. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  2088. For most folks this file does not exist.
  2089. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  2090. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  2091. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  2092. =gnu.org= manuals.
  2093. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  2094. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  2095. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  2096. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  2097. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  2098. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  2099. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  2100. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  2101. future.)
  2102. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  2103. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  2104. modified anyway.
  2105. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  2106. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  2107. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  2108. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  2109. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  2110. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  2111. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  2112. indication letter was solely J.
  2113. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  2114. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  2115. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  2116. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  2117. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  2118. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  2119. a ~defvar~.
  2120. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  2121. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  2122. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  2123. * Version 8.3
  2124. ** Incompatible changes
  2125. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  2126. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  2127. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  2128. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  2129. logged before the property drawer.
  2130. The following function will repair them:
  2131. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2132. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  2133. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  2134. Ignore non Org buffers."
  2135. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  2136. (org-with-wide-buffer
  2137. (goto-char (point-min))
  2138. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  2139. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  2140. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  2141. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  2142. (org-map-entries
  2143. (lambda ()
  2144. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  2145. (save-excursion
  2146. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  2147. (forward-line)
  2148. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  2149. (when (and (< (point) end)
  2150. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  2151. (save-excursion
  2152. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  2153. (eq (org-element-type
  2154. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  2155. 'drawer))))
  2156. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  2157. (match-beginning 0)
  2158. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  2159. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  2160. #+END_SRC
  2161. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  2162. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  2163. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  2164. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  2165. into account when exporting.
  2166. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  2167. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  2168. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  2169. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  2170. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  2171. 5.14 (2008).
  2172. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  2173. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  2174. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2175. ,* Headline

  2180. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  2181. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  2182. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  2183. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  2184. see.
  2185. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  2186. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  2187. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  2188. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  2189. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  2190. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  2191. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  2192. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  2193. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  2194. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  2195. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  2196. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  2197. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  2198. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  2199. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  2200. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  2201. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  2202. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  2203. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  2204. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  2205. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  2206. *** Functions signature changes
  2207. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  2208. docstring for more information.
  2209. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  2210. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  2211. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  2212. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  2213. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  2214. - ~org-link-search~
  2215. ** New features
  2216. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  2217. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  2218. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  2219. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  2220. :lexical yes
  2221. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  2222. :lexical no
  2223. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  2224. :lexical '((x . 42))
  2225. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  2226. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  2227. without changing the headline.
  2228. *** Hierarchies of tags
  2229. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to Org mode.
  2230. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  2231. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  2232. The following in-buffer definition:
  2233. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2234. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  2235. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  2236. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  2237. #+END_SRC
  2238. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  2239. - Group
  2240. - SubOne
  2241. - SubOne1
  2242. - SubOne2
  2243. - SubTwo
  2244. - SubTwo1
  2245. - SubTwo2
  2246. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  2247. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  2248. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  2249. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  2250. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  2251. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  2252. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  2253. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  2254. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  2255. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  2256. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  2257. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  2258. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  2259. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  2260. #+END_SRC
  2261. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  2262. grouptags; { }.
  2263. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  2264. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  2265. "sub-tags".
  2266. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  2267. Example use:
  2268. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  2269. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  2270. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  2271. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  2272. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  2273. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  2274. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  2275. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  2276. levels anymore.
  2277. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  2278. is also used as a filter.
  2279. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  2280. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  2281. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  2282. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  2283. exclude.
  2284. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  2285. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  2286. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  2287. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  2288. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  2289. New ob-processing.el library.
  2290. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  2291. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  2292. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  2293. Check the documentation for more details.
  2294. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  2295. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  2296. The new behavior is the following:
  2297. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  2298. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  2299. buffer;
  2300. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  2301. subtree;
  2302. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  2303. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  2304. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  2305. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  2306. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  2307. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  2308. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  2309. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  2310. more information.
  2311. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  2312. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  2313. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  2314. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  2315. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  2316. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  2317. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  2318. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  2319. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  2320. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  2321. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  2322. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  2323. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  2324. default is =hline=.
  2325. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  2326. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  2327. a source block.
  2328. *** New option in ASCII export
  2329. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  2330. variable to an appropriate integer.
  2331. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  2332. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  2333. blocks. See documentation for details.
  2334. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  2335. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  2336. increased. See manual for details.
  2337. *** Export inline source blocks
  2338. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  2339. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  2340. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  2341. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  2342. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  2343. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  2344. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  2345. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  2346. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  2347. more features. See docstring for details.
  2348. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  2349. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  2350. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  2351. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  2352. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  2353. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  2354. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2355. : This sentence is false.
  2356. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  2357. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  2358. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  2359. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  2360. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  2361. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  2362. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  2363. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  2364. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  2365. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  2366. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  2367. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  2368. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  2369. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  2370. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  2371. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  2372. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  2373. each time.
  2374. *** ASCII plot
  2375. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  2376. for details.
  2377. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  2378. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  2379. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  2380. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  2381. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  2382. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  2383. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  2384. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  2385. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  2386. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  2387. See the docstring for more information.
  2388. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  2389. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  2390. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  2391. property is inherited by children.
  2392. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  2393. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  2394. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  2395. to sort a table.
  2396. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  2397. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  2398. for details.
  2399. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  2400. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  2401. countdown timers.
  2402. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  2403. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  2404. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  2405. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  2406. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  2407. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  2408. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  2409. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  2410. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  2411. manual for details.
  2412. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  2413. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  2414. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  2415. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  2416. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  2417. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  2418. leading spaces within table cells.
  2419. *** New MathJax configuration options
  2420. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  2421. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  2422. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  2423. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  2424. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  2425. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  2426. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  2427. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  2428. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  2429. keywords and properties.
  2430. *** Viewport support in html export
  2431. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  2432. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  2433. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  2434. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  2435. for details.
  2436. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  2437. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  2438. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  2439. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  2440. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  2441. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  2442. added to headline text.
  2443. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  2444. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  2445. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  2446. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  2447. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  2448. =#+TOC= keyword.
  2449. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  2450. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  2451. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  2452. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  2453. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  2454. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  2455. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  2456. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  2457. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  2458. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  2459. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  2460. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  2461. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  2462. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  2463. ** Removed functions
  2464. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  2465. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  2466. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  2467. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  2468. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  2469. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  2470. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  2471. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  2472. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  2473. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  2474. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  2475. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  2476. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  2477. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  2478. optional argument.
  2479. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  2480. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  2481. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  2482. ** Removed options
  2483. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  2484. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  2485. compatibility.
  2486. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  2487. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  2488. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  2489. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  2490. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  2491. document instead.
  2492. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  2493. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  2494. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  2495. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  2496. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  2497. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  2498. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell language is =shell=. To chose
  2499. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  2500. variable locally.
  2501. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  2502. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  2503. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  2504. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  2505. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  2506. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  2507. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  2508. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  2509. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  2510. removed.
  2511. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  2512. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  2513. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  2514. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  2515. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  2516. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  2517. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  2518. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  2519. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  2520. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  2521. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  2522. *** Removed comment-related filters
  2523. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  2524. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  2525. anymore.
  2526. ** Miscellaneous
  2527. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  2528. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  2529. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  2530. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  2531. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  2532. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  2533. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  2534. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  2535. labels colliding.
  2536. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  2537. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  2538. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  2539. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  2540. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  2541. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  2542. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  2543. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  2544. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  2545. particular test failure was introduced.
  2546. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  2547. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  2548. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  2549. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  2550. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  2551. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  2552. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  2553. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  2554. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  2555. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  2556. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  2557. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  2558. This helps spotting wrong links.
  2559. * Version 8.2
  2560. ** Incompatible changes
  2561. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  2562. This may require two changes in user config.
  2563. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  2564. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  2565. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  2566. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  2567. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  2568. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  2569. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  2570. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  2571. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  2572. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  2573. with this:
  2574. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  2575. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  2576. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  2577. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  2578. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  2579. So you need to replace
  2580. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  2581. by
  2582. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  2583. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  2584. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  2585. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  2586. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  2587. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  2588. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  2589. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  2590. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  2591. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  2592. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  2593. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  2594. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  2595. of a symbol.
  2596. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  2597. ** Important bugfixes
  2598. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  2599. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  2600. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  2601. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  2602. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  2603. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  2604. ** New features
  2605. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  2606. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  2607. of the list.
  2608. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  2609. - Support SVG images
  2610. - Support for .pgf files
  2611. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  2612. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  2613. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  2614. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  2615. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  2616. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  2617. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  2618. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  2619. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  2620. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  2621. in a paragraph-like way.
  2622. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2623. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  2624. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  2625. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  2626. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  2627. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  2628. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  2629. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  2630. which can then be passed to export functions like
  2631. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  2632. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  2633. registering a new back-end.
  2634. *** New agenda fortnight view
  2635. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  2636. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  2637. ** New options
  2638. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  2639. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  2640. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  2641. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  2642. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  2643. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  2644. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  2645. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  2646. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  2647. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  2648. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  2649. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  2650. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  2651. of =ox-rss.el=.
  2652. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  2653. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  2654. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  2655. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  2656. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  2657. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  2658. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  2659. If you set this to the following
  2660. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  2661. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  2662. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  2663. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  2664. =C-o= in tables.
  2665. ** New contributed packages
  2666. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  2667. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[https://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  2668. software.
  2669. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  2670. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[https://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  2671. ** Miscellaneous
  2672. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  2673. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  2674. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  2675. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  2676. the same with example blocks.
  2677. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  2678. release.
  2679. * Version 8.0.1
  2680. ** Installation
  2681. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  2682. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  2683. instructions:
  2684. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  2685. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  2686. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  2687. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  2688. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  2689. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  2690. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  2691. detailed explanations.
  2692. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2693. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2694. function has been called already.
  2695. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2696. installation.
  2697. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2698. ** Incompatible changes
  2699. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2700. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2701. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2702. you will have to update them.
  2703. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2704. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2705. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2706. **** New export engine
  2707. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2708. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2709. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2710. /all/ export back-ends.
  2711. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2712. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2713. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2714. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2715. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2716. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2717. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2718. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2719. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2720. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2721. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2722. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2723. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2724. should now be written
  2725. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2726. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2727. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2728. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2729. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2730. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2731. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2732. now fully removed.
  2733. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2734. remember templates into capture templates.
  2735. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2736. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2737. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2738. **** Note for third-party developers
  2739. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2740. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2741. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2742. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2743. code.
  2744. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2745. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2746. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2747. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2748. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2749. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2750. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2751. user-base.
  2752. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2753. - org-mac-message.el
  2754. - org-mew.el
  2755. - org-wl.el
  2756. - ox-freedmind.el
  2757. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2758. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2759. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2760. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2761. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  2762. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  2763. ** New packages in core
  2764. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  2765. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  2766. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2767. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  2768. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  2769. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  2770. vanilla [[https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  2771. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  2772. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  2773. ** New packages in contrib
  2774. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  2775. [[https://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  2776. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  2777. code.
  2778. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2779. [[https://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  2780. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  2781. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  2782. entries.
  2783. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2784. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[https://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  2785. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  2786. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  2787. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  2788. for starting headlines.
  2789. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  2790. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  2791. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  2792. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  2793. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  2794. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  2795. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  2796. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  2797. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  2798. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2799. using =deck.js=.
  2800. [[https://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  2801. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2802. using =s5=.
  2803. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2804. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2805. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2806. output.
  2807. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2808. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2809. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2810. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2811. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2812. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2813. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2814. entirely with Org.
  2815. ** New features
  2816. *** Export
  2817. **** New export generic options
  2818. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2819. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2820. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2821. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2822. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2823. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2824. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2825. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2826. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2827. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2828. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2829. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2830. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2831. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2832. contains time-stamps.
  2833. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2834. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2835. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2836. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2837. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2838. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2839. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2840. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2841. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2842. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2843. *** Structure editing
  2844. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2845. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2846. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2847. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2848. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2849. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2850. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2851. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2852. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2853. region.
  2854. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2855. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2856. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2857. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2858. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2859. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2860. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2861. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2862. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2863. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2864. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2865. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2866. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2867. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2868. forward and backward.
  2869. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2870. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2871. Now Org will sort this list
  2872. : - [[https://abc.org][B]]
  2873. : - [[https://def.org][A]]
  2874. like this:
  2875. : - [[https://def.org][A]]
  2876. : - [[https://abc.org][B]]
  2877. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2878. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2879. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2880. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2881. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2882. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2883. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2884. local variable.
  2885. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2886. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2887. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2888. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2889. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2890. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2891. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2892. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2893. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2894. option to =nil=.
  2895. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2896. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2897. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2898. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2899. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2900. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2901. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2902. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2903. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2904. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2905. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2906. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2907. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2908. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2909. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2910. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2911. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2912. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2913. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2914. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2915. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2916. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2917. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2918. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2919. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2920. control this globally or per agenda.
  2921. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2922. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2923. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2924. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2925. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2926. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2927. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2928. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2929. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2930. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2931. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2932. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2933. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2934. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2935. (kbd "@")
  2936. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2937. #+END_SRC
  2938. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2939. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2940. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2941. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2942. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2943. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2944. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2945. only show their description, not the full links.
  2946. *** Agenda
  2947. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2948. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2949. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2950. want to build a list of appointments.
  2951. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2952. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2953. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2954. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2955. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2956. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2957. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2958. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2959. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2960. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2961. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2962. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2963. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2964. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2965. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2966. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2967. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2968. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2969. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2970. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2971. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2972. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2973. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2974. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2975. These new options are available:
  2976. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2977. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2978. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2979. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2980. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2981. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2982. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2983. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2984. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2985. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2986. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2987. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2988. non-tagged headlines.
  2989. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2990. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2991. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2992. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2993. that take only =N= minutes.
  2994. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2995. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2996. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2997. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2998. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2999. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  3000. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  3001. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  3002. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  3003. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  3004. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  3005. list of notes.
  3006. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  3007. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  3008. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  3009. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  3010. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  3011. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  3012. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  3013. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  3014. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  3015. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  3016. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  3017. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  3018. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  3019. outline tree.
  3020. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  3021. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  3022. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  3023. asks for a confirmation.
  3024. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  3025. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  3026. the mark of the entry at point.
  3027. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  3028. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  3029. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  3030. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  3031. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  3032. level 1.
  3033. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  3034. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  3035. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  3036. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  3037. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  3038. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  3039. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  3040. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  3041. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  3042. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  3043. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  3044. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  3045. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  3046. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  3047. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  3048. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  3049. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  3050. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  3051. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  3052. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  3053. Read the full docstring for details.
  3054. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  3055. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  3056. : * Task
  3057. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  3058. *** Capture
  3059. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  3060. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  3061. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  3062. capture template.
  3063. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  3064. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  3065. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  3066. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  3067. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  3068. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  3069. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  3070. check against the name of the buffer.
  3071. *** Tag groups
  3072. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  3073. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  3074. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  3075. of those tags.)
  3076. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  3077. agenda views, and for filtering.
  3078. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  3079. *** Links
  3080. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  3081. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  3082. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  3083. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  3084. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  3085. as if the protocol was not known.
  3086. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  3087. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  3088. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  3089. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  3090. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  3091. active.
  3092. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  3093. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  3094. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  3095. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  3096. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  3097. When storing a link to a headline like
  3098. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  3099. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  3100. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  3101. there is no description.
  3102. *** Table
  3103. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  3104. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  3105. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  3106. those other formulas.
  3107. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  3108. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  3109. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  3110. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  3111. the end.
  3112. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  3113. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  3114. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  3115. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  3116. doing computation.
  3117. **** New lookup functions
  3118. There are now three lookup functions:
  3119. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  3120. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  3121. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  3122. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  3123. *** Startup keywords
  3124. These new startup keywords are now available:
  3125. | Startup keyword | Option |
  3126. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  3127. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  3128. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  3129. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  3130. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  3131. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  3132. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  3133. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  3134. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  3135. *** Clocking
  3136. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  3137. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  3138. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  3139. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  3140. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  3141. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  3142. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  3143. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  3144. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  3145. the clocktable.
  3146. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  3147. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  3148. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  3149. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  3150. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  3151. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  3152. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  3153. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  3154. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  3155. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  3156. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  3157. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  3158. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  3159. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  3160. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  3161. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  3162. *** Babel
  3163. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  3164. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  3165. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  3166. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  3167. same target than the block at point.
  3168. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  3169. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  3170. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  3171. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  3172. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  3173. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  3174. time.
  3175. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  3176. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  3177. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  3178. manual for a usage example.
  3179. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  3180. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  3181. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  3182. collecting blocks for tangling.
  3183. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  3184. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  3185. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  3186. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  3187. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  3188. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  3189. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  3190. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  3191. *** Faces
  3192. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  3193. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  3194. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  3195. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  3196. ** Miscellaneous
  3197. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  3198. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  3199. - [[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]]
  3200. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  3201. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  3202. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  3203. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  3204. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  3205. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  3206. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically

  3216. ** Outside Org
  3217. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  3218. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  3219. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  3220. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  3221. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  3222. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  3223. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  3224. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  3225. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  3226. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  3227. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  3228. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  3229. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:

  3231. - [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  3232. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  3233. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  3234. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  3235. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  3236. * Version 7.9.3
  3237. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  3238. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  3239. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  3240. agenda views.)
  3241. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  3242. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  3243. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  3244. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  3245. agenda type to this variable.
  3246. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  3247. generation.
  3248. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  3249. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  3250. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  3251. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  3252. ** New default value =nil= for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  3253. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  3254. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  3255. invisible) blocked tasks.
  3256. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  3257. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  3258. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  3259. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  3260. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  3261. ** No GPL manual anymore
  3262. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  3263. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  3264. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  3265. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  3266. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  3267. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  3268. in most environments.
  3269. * Version 7.9.2
  3270. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  3271. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  3272. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3273. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  3274. #+END_SRC
  3275. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  3276. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  3277. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  3278. directory.)
  3279. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  3280. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  3281. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  3282. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  3283. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |

  3295. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  3296. ** New package and Babel language
  3297. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  3298. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  3299. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  3300. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  3301. ** Incompatible changes
  3302. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  3303. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  3304. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  3305. instead.
  3306. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  3307. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  3308. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  3309. ** New features and user-visible changes
  3310. *** Org Element
  3311. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  3312. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  3313. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  3314. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  3315. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  3316. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  3317. See the docstrings for more details.
  3318. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  3319. on =org-element.el=.
  3320. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  3321. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  3322. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  3323. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  3324. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  3325. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  3326. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  3327. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  3328. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  3329. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  3330. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  3331. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  3332. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  3333. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  3334. elements.
  3335. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  3336. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  3337. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  3338. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  3339. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  3340. item. Etc.
  3341. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  3342. the whole list.
  3343. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  3344. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  3345. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  3346. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  3347. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  3348. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  3349. the same level.
  3350. *** Org Agenda
  3351. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  3352. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  3353. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  3354. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  3355. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  3356. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  3357. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  3358. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  3359. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  3360. generating new ones.
  3361. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  3362. agenda buffer.
  3363. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  3364. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3365. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  3366. to this value
  3367. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3368. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  3369. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  3370. #+END_SRC
  3371. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  3372. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  3373. details on how to use this.
  3374. **** Changes in bulk actions
  3375. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  3376. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  3377. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  3378. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  3379. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  3380. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  3381. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  3382. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  3383. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  3384. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  3385. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  3386. =t=.
  3387. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  3388. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  3389. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  3390. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  3391. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  3392. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  3393. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  3394. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  3395. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  3396. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  3397. =f= or =w=).
  3398. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  3399. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  3400. of deadline.
  3401. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  3402. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  3403. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  3404. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  3405. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  3406. several times.
  3407. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  3408. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  3409. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  3410. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  3411. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  3412. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  3413. filters and category filters.
  3414. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  3415. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  3416. configuration.
  3417. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  3418. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  3419. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  3420. point.
  3421. *** Org Links
  3422. **** Inserting links
  3423. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  3424. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  3425. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  3426. want to insert.
  3427. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  3428. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  3429. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  3430. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  3431. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  3432. highlighted.
  3433. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  3434. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  3435. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  3436. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  3437. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  3438. **** New link type =help=
  3439. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  3440. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  3441. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  3442. you go back to the same buffer.
  3443. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  3444. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  3445. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  3446. =org-stored-links=.
  3447. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  3448. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  3449. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  3450. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  3451. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  3452. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  3453. *** Org Editing
  3454. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  3455. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  3456. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  3457. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  3458. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  3459. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  3460. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  3461. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  3462. all headlines in the region.
  3463. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  3464. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  3465. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  3466. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  3467. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  3468. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  3469. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  3470. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  3471. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  3472. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  3473. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  3474. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  3475. undo RET=.
  3476. *** Org Clock
  3477. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  3478. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  3479. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  3480. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  3481. clocked entry, if any.
  3482. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  3483. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  3484. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  3485. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  3486. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  3487. out.
  3488. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  3489. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  3490. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  3491. arguments).
  3492. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  3493. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  3494. in.
  3495. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  3496. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  3497. cells in clockreport.
  3498. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  3499. time cells in clockreport.
  3500. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  3501. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  3502. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3503. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  3504. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3505. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  3506. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  3507. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  3508. space in the frame title.
  3509. *** Org Appearance
  3510. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  3511. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  3512. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  3513. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  3514. don't want to see temporarily.
  3515. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  3516. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  3517. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  3518. There are these new entities:
  3519. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  3520. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  3521. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  3522. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  3523. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  3524. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  3525. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  3526. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  3527. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  3528. The face is back to a normal height.
  3529. *** Org Columns
  3530. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  3531. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  3532. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  3533. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  3534. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  3535. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  3536. block will use its value as the column format.
  3537. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  3538. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  3539. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  3540. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  3541. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  3542. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  3543. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  3544. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  3545. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  3546. You can now use
  3547. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  3548. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  3549. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  3550. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  3551. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  3552. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  3553. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  3554. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  3555. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  3556. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  3557. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  3558. *** Org Capture
  3559. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  3560. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  3561. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  3562. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  3563. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  3564. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  3565. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3566. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  3567. set to this value
  3568. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3569. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  3570. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  3571. #+END_SRC
  3572. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  3573. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  3574. more details on how to use this.
  3575. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  3576. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  3577. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  3578. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  3579. =nil=.
  3580. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  3581. See the manual for more explanations.
  3582. **** More control over empty lines
  3583. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  3584. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  3585. explanations.
  3586. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  3587. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  3588. *** Org Export
  3589. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  3590. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  3591. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  3592. available) to print beautiful tables.
  3593. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  3594. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  3595. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  3596. the table.
  3597. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  3598. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  3599. in the #+DATE option.
  3600. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  3601. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  3602. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  3603. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  3604. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  3605. More languages are always welcome.
  3606. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  3607. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  3608. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  3609. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  3610. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  3611. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  3612. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  3613. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  3614. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  3615. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  3616. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  3617. *** Org Babel
  3618. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  3619. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  3620. supported.
  3621. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  3622. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  3623. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  3624. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  3625. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  3626. It used to exports the results of the code.
  3627. *** Miscellaneous
  3628. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  3629. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  3630. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  3631. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  3632. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  3633. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  3634. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  3635. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  3636. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  3637. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  3638. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  3639. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  3640. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  3641. alarm.
  3642. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  3643. This will increment the effort value.
  3644. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  3645. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  3646. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  3647. attach symbolic links.
  3648. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  3649. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  3650. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  3651. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  3652. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  3653. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  3654. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  3655. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  3656. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  3657. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  3658. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  3659. all top level list items.
  3660. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  3661. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  3662. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  3663. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  3664. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  3665. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  3666. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  3667. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  3668. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  3669. first headline in the region.
  3670. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  3671. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  3672. agenda.
  3673. ** Important bug fixes
  3674. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  3675. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  3676. perform completion with meaningful values.
  3677. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  3678. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  3679. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  3680. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  3681. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  3682. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  3683. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  3684. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  3685. license.
  3686. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  3687. the code and the license to your needs.
  3688. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  3689. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  3690. * Version 7.8.11
  3691. ** Incompatible changes
  3692. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3693. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3694. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3695. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3696. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3697. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3698. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3699. last-minute save.
  3700. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3701. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3702. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3703. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3704. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3705. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3706. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3707. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3708. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3709. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3710. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3711. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3712. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3713. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3714. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3715. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3716. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3717. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3718. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3719. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3720. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3721. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3722. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3723. #+end_src
  3724. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3725. setup./
  3726. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3727. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3728. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3729. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3730. The two new variables are:
  3731. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3732. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3733. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3734. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3735. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3736. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3737. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3738. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3739. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3740. classes.
  3741. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3742. document are:
  3743. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3744. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3745. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3746. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3747. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3748. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3749. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3750. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3751. #+begin_example
  3752. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3753. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3754. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3755. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3756. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3757. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3758. #+end_example
  3759. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3760. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3761. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3762. applies to the following packages:
  3763. - inputenc
  3764. - fontenc
  3765. - fixltx2e
  3766. - graphicx
  3767. - longtable
  3768. - float
  3769. - wrapfig
  3770. - soul
  3771. - t1enc
  3772. - textcomp
  3773. - marvosym
  3774. - wasysym
  3775. - latexsym
  3776. - amssymb
  3777. - hyperref
  3778. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3779. you are using, you can remove it from
  3780. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3781. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3782. properly.
  3783. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3784. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3785. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3786. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3787. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3788. the header.
  3789. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3790. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3791. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3792. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3793. code using it.
  3794. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3795. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3796. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3797. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3798. ** Important new features
  3799. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3800. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3801. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3802. for more information on how to customize it.
  3803. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3804. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3805. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3806. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3807. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3808. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3809. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3810. [[msg:C46F10DC-DE51-43D4-AFFE-F71E440D1E1F@gmail.com][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3811. To switch over to the new system:
  3812. 1. Run
  3813. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3814. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3815. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3816. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3817. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3818. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3819. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3820. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3821. customization.
  3822. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3823. with org-remember:
  3824. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3825. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3826. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3827. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3828. with using both system in parallel.
  3829. ** New libraries
  3830. *** New Org libraries
  3831. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3832. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3833. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3834. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3835. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3836. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3837. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3838. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3839. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3840. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3841. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3842. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3843. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3844. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3845. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3846. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3847. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3848. anything.
  3849. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3850. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3851. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3852. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3853. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3854. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3855. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3856. /org-ctags.el/.
  3857. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3858. call function to do something special with text links.
  3859. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3860. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3861. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3862. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3863. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3864. Org-mode manual:
  3865. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3866. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3867. *** New Babel libraries
  3868. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3869. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3870. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3871. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3872. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3873. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3874. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3875. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3876. *** Hyperlinks
  3877. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3878. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3879. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3880. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3881. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3882. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3883. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3884. The key new functions are
  3885. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3886. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3887. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3888. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3889. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3890. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3891. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3892. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3893. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3894. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3895. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3896. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3897. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3898. **** Modified link escaping
  3899. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[msg:87k4gysacq.wl%dmaus@ictsoc.de][his message]]:
  3900. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3901. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3902. : in link target or description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3903. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3904. : link).
  3905. :
  3906. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3907. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3908. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3909. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3910. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3911. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3912. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3913. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3914. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3915. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3916. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3917. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3918. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3919. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3920. string to be executed.
  3921. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3922. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3923. to org-file-apps:
  3924. #+begin_example
  3925. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3926. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3927. #+end_example
  3928. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3929. *** Dates and time
  3930. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3931. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3932. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3933. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3934. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3935. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3936. will work on the current entry.
  3937. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3938. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3939. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3940. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3941. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3942. #+begin_example
  3943. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3944. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3945. #+end_example
  3946. *** Agenda
  3947. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3948. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3949. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3950. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3951. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3952. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3953. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3954. entries using a function.
  3955. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3956. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3957. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3958. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3959. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3960. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3961. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3962. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3963. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3964. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3965. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3966. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3967. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3968. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3969. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3970. *** Exporting
  3971. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3972. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3973. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3974. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3975. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3976. %-sequences.
  3977. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3978. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3979. formatting string will insert a string.
  3980. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3981. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3982. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3983. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3984. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3985. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3986. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3987. C-e u=, respectively.
  3988. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3989. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3990. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3991. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3992. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3993. your preference.
  3994. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3995. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3996. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3997. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3998. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3999. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  4000. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  4001. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  4002. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  4003. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  4004. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  4005. section]] in the manual for more details.
  4006. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  4007. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  4008. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  4009. individual could.
  4010. *** Refiling
  4011. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  4012. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  4013. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  4014. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  4015. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  4016. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  4017. **** New logging support for refiling
  4018. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  4019. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  4020. =org-log-refile=.
  4021. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  4022. *** Completion
  4023. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  4024. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  4025. *** Tables
  4026. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  4027. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  4028. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  4029. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  4030. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  4031. the displayed in the buffer.
  4032. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  4033. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  4034. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  4035. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  4036. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  4037. |--------+--------+---------|
  4038. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  4039. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  4040. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  4041. optional.
  4042. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  4043. feedback on this.
  4044. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  4045. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  4046. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  4047. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  4048. : things like
  4049. :
  4050. : @3=
  4051. : @2$2..@5$7=
  4052. : @I$2..@II$4=
  4053. :
  4054. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  4055. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  4056. : table.
  4057. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  4058. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  4059. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  4060. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  4061. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  4062. *** Lists
  4063. **** Improved handling of lists
  4064. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  4065. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  4066. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  4067. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  4068. indented than it.
  4069. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  4070. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  4071. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  4072. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  4073. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  4074. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  4075. `org-list-export-context'.
  4076. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  4077. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  4078. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  4079. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  4080. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  4081. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  4082. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  4083. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  4084. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  4085. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  4086. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  4087. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  4088. *** Inline display of linked images
  4089. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  4090. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  4091. that have no description part will be inlined.
  4092. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  4093. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  4094. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  4095. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  4096. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  4097. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  4098. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  4099. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  4100. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  4101. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  4102. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  4103. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  4104. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  4105. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  4106. tangling
  4107. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  4108. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  4109. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  4110. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  4111. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  4112. properties or in tables.
  4113. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  4114. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  4115. names, and rownames across all languages.
  4116. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  4117. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  4118. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  4119. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  4120. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  4121. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  4122. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  4123. request by Scott Otterson.
  4124. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  4125. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  4126. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  4127. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  4128. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  4129. superscripts, see the variable
  4130. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  4131. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  4132. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  4133. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  4134. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  4135. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  4136. following new faces:
  4137. =org-document-title=
  4138. =org-document-info=
  4139. =org-document-info-keyword=
  4140. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  4141. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  4142. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  4143. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  4144. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  4145. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  4146. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  4147. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  4148. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  4149. property is affected by this setting.
  4150. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  4151. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  4152. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  4153. Requested by Michael Brand.
  4154. **** Better level cycling function
  4155. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  4156. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  4157. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  4158. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  4159. **** Adaptive filling
  4160. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  4161. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  4162. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  4163. comments to be filled correctly.
  4164. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  4165. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  4166. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  4167. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  4168. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  4169. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  4170. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  4171. *** Clocking
  4172. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  4173. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  4174. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  4175. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  4176. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  4177. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  4178. **** Localized clock tables
  4179. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  4180. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  4181. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  4182. available translated strings.
  4183. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  4184. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  4185. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  4186. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  4187. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  4188. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  4189. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  4190. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  4191. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  4192. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  4193. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  4194. =nil=.
  4195. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  4196. *** Misc
  4197. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  4198. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  4199. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  4200. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  4201. **** A property value of =nil= now means to unset a property
  4202. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  4203. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  4204. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  4205. property) back.
  4206. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  4207. change.
  4208. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  4209. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  4210. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  4211. #+begin_example
  4212. org-table-get
  4213. org-table-put
  4214. org-table-current-line
  4215. org-table-goto-line
  4216. #+end_example
  4217. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  4218. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  4219. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  4220. node.
  4221. This was requested by Tom.
  4222. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  4223. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  4224. example by viewing from the agenda.
  4225. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
