  8. * Version 9.4 (not yet released)
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** Possibly broken internal file links: please check and fix
  11. A bug has been affecting internal links to headlines, like
  12. : [[*Headline][A link to a headline]]
  13. Storing a link to a headline may have been broken in your setup and
  14. those links may appear as
  15. : [[*TODO Headline][A link to a headline]]
  16. Following the link above will result in an error: the TODO keyword
  17. should not be part of internal file links.
  18. You can use the following command to fix links in an Org buffer:
  19. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  20. (defun org-fix-links ()
  21. "Fix ill-formatted internal links.
  22. E.g. replace [[*TODO Headline][headline]] by [[*Headline][headline]].
  23. Go through the buffer and ask for the replacement."
  24. (interactive)
  25. (visible-mode 1)
  26. (save-excursion
  27. (goto-char (point-min))
  28. (let ((regexp (format "\\[\\[\\*%s\\s-+"
  29. (regexp-opt org-todo-keywords-1 t))))
  30. (while (re-search-forward regexp nil t)
  31. (when (and (save-excursion
  32. (goto-char (match-beginning 0))
  33. (looking-at-p org-link-bracket-re))
  34. (y-or-n-p "Fix link (remove TODO keyword)? "))
  35. (replace-match "[[*")))))
  36. (visible-mode -1))
  37. #+end_src
  38. *** Calling conventions changes when opening or exporting custom links
  39. This changes affects export back-ends, and libraries providing new
  40. link types.
  41. Function used in ~:follow~ link parameter is required to accept a
  42. second argument. Likewise, function used in ~:export~ parameter needs
  43. to accept a fourth argument. See ~org-link-set-parameters~ for
  44. details.
  45. Eventually, the function ~org-export-custom-protocol-maybe~ is now
  46. called with a fourth argument. Even though the 3-arguments definition
  47. is still supported, at least for now, we encourage back-end developers
  48. to switch to the new signature.
  49. *** Python session return values must be top-level expression statements
  50. Python blocks with ~:session :results value~ header arguments now only
  51. return a value if the last line is a top-level expression statement,
  52. otherwise the result is None. Also, None will now show up under
  53. "#+RESULTS:", as it already did with ~:results value~ for non-session
  54. blocks.
  55. *** In HTML export, change on how outline-container-* is set
  56. When the headline has a =CUSTOM_ID=, use this custom id to build the
  57. div id. For example, if you have =:CUSTOM_ID: my-headline= then the
  58. resulting <div> will be ~<div id="outline-container-my-headline">~.
  59. You may want to check whether your HTML files are rendered differently
  60. after this change.
  61. *** New keybinding =<C-c C-TAB>= for ~org-force-cycle-archived~
  62. ~org-force-cycle-archived~ used to be associated with =<C-TAB>= but
  63. this keybinding is used in Emacs for navigating tabs in Emacs. The
  64. new keybinding is =<C-c C-TAB>=.
  65. ** New default settings for some options
  66. These options now default to =t=:
  67. - ~org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~
  68. - ~org-fontify-done-headline~
  69. - ~org-src-tab-acts-natively~
  70. You may want to read the docstrings of these options to understand the
  71. consequences of this change.
  72. Also, ~org-startup-folded~ now defaults to ~showeverything~.
  73. ** New features
  74. *** Looping agenda commands over headlines
  75. ~org-agenda-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region~ allows you to loop
  76. agenda commands over the active region.
  77. When set to =t= (the default), loop over all headlines. When set to
  78. ='start-level=, loop over headlines with the same level as the first
  79. headline in the region. When set to a string, loop over lines
  80. matching this regular expression.
  81. *** New minor mode ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  82. Turn on the display of the first data row of the table at point in the
  83. window header line when this first row is not visible anymore in the
  84. buffer.
  85. You can activate this minor mode by default by setting the option
  86. ~org-table-header-line-p~ to =t=. You can also change the face for
  87. the header line by customizing the ~org-table-header~ face.
  88. *** New minor mode ~org-list-checkbox-radio-mode~
  89. When this minor mode is on, checkboxes behave as radio buttons: if a
  90. checkbox is turned on, other checkboxes at the same level are turned
  91. off.
  92. If you want to occasionally toggle a checkbox as a radio button
  93. without turning this minor mode on, you can use =<C-c C-x C-r>= to
  94. call ~org-toggle-radio-button~.
  95. You can also add =#+ATTR_ORG: :radio t= right before the list to tell
  96. Org to use radio buttons for this list only.
  97. *** New allowed value for ~org-adapt-indentation~
  98. ~org-adapt-indentation~ now accepts a new value, ='headline-data=.
  99. When set to this value, Org will only adapt indentation of headline
  100. data lines, such as planning/clock lines and property/logbook drawers.
  101. Also, with this setting, =org-indent-mode= will keep these data lines
  102. correctly aligned with the headline above.
  103. *** Numeric priorities are now allowed (up to 65)
  104. You can now set ~org-priority-highest/lowest/default~ to integers to
  105. use numeric priorities globally or set, for example
  106. #+PRIORITIES: 1 10 5
  107. to define a buffer-local range and default for priorities. Priority
  108. commands should work as usual. You cannot use numbers superior to 64
  109. for numeric priorities, as it would clash with priorities like [#A]
  110. where the "A" is internally converted to its numeric value of 65.
  111. *** Property drawers allowed before first headline
  112. Property drawers are now allowed before the first headline.
  113. Org mode is moving more towards making things before the first
  114. headline behave just as if it was at outline level 0. Inheritance for
  115. properties will work also for this level. In other words: defining
  116. things in a property drawer before the first headline will make them
  117. "inheritable" for all headlines.
  118. *** Refinement in window behavior on exiting Org source buffer
  119. After editing a source block, Org will restore the window layout when
  120. ~org-src-window-setup~ is set to a value that modifies the layout.
  121. *** Display remote inline images
  122. Org now knows how to display remote images inline.
  123. Whether the images are actually displayed is controlled by the new
  124. option ~org-display-remote-inline-images~.
  125. *** New option to resolve open clock at a provided time
  126. ~org-resolve-clocks~ now has a `t' option, which works just like the
  127. `k' option, but the user specifies a time of day, not a number of
  128. minutes.
  129. *** New step value =semimonth= accepted for clock tables
  130. *** Allow text rescaling in column view
  131. You can now use =C-x C-+= in column view: the columns face size will
  132. increase or decrease, together with the column header size.
  133. *** New startup option =#+startup: num=
  134. When this startup option is set, display headings as numerated.
  135. Use =#+startup: nonum= to turn this off.
  136. *** New tool for custom links
  137. Org provides a new tool ~org-link-open-as-file~, useful when defining
  138. new link types similar to "file"-type links. See docstring for
  139. details.
  140. *** =ob-C.el= allows you to include non-system header files
  141. In C and C++ blocks, ~:includes~ arguments that do not start with a
  142. ~<~ character will now be formatted as double-quoted ~#include~
  143. statements.
  144. *** =ob-clojure.el= supports inf-clojure.el and ClojureScript evaluation
  145. You can now set ~(setq org-babel-clojure-backend 'inf-clojure)~ and
  146. evaluate Clojure source blocks using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/inf-clojure][inf-clojure]]. With a header
  147. argument like =:alias "alias"= the Clojure REPL will boot with
  148. =clojure -Aalias=. Otherwise Clojure will boot with =lein=, =boot= or
  149. =tools.deps=, depending on whether the current directory contains a
  150. =project.clj=, =build.boot= or =deps.edn=, falling back on
  151. ~inf-clojure-generic-cmd~ in case no such file is present.
  152. Also, when using [[https://github.com/clojure-emacs/cider][cider]], you can now use =#+begin_src clojurescript= to
  153. execute ClojureScript code from Org files. Note that this works only
  154. if your Org file is associated with a cider session that knows how to
  155. run ClojureScript code. A bare =lein repl= session outside of a
  156. directory configured for ClojureScript will /not/ work.
  157. *** =ob-java.el=: you can now pass Java command line arguments
  158. Babel Java blocks recognize header argument =:cmdargs= and pass its
  159. value in call to =java=.
  160. *** =RET= and =C-j= now obey ~electric-indent-mode~
  161. Since Emacs 24.4, ~electric-indent-mode~ is enabled by default. In
  162. most major modes, this causes =RET= to reindent the current line and
  163. indent the new line, and =C-j= to insert a newline without indenting.
  164. Org mode now obeys this minor mode: when ~electric-indent-mode~ is
  165. enabled, and point is neither in a table nor on a timestamp or a link:
  166. - =RET= (bound to ~org-return~) reindents the current line and indents
  167. the new line;
  168. - =C-j= (bound to the new command ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~)
  169. merely inserts a newline.
  170. To get the previous behaviour back, disable ~electric-indent-mode~
  171. explicitly:
  172. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  173. (add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (electric-indent-mode -1)))
  174. #+end_src
  175. *** New optional numeric argument for ~org-return~
  176. In situations where ~org-return~ calls ~newline~, multiple newlines
  177. can now be inserted with this prefix argument.
  178. ** New commands
  179. *** ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  180. Turn on a minor mode to display the first data row of the table at
  181. point in the header-line when the beginning of the table is invisible.
  182. *** ~org-datetree-find-month-create~
  183. Find or create a month entry for a date.
  184. *** ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~
  185. =<C-c C-c>= bound to ~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~ replaces the
  186. recent ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~. Tag setting is still
  187. possible via column view value edit or with =<C-c C-q>=.
  188. *** ~org-agenda-ctrl-c-ctrl-c~
  189. =<C-c C-c>= in agenda calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~.
  190. ** New options
  191. *** New option ~org-clock-auto-clockout-timer~
  192. When this option is set to a number and the user configuration
  193. contains =(org-clock-auto-clockout-insinuate)=, Org will clock out the
  194. currently clocked in task after that number of seconds of idle time.
  195. This is useful when you often forget to clock out before being idle
  196. and don't want to have to manually set the clocking time to take into
  197. account.
  198. *** New option ~org-table-header-line-p~
  199. Setting this option to =t= will activate ~org-table-header-line-mode~
  200. in org-mode buffers.
  201. *** New option to group captured datetime entries by month
  202. A new `:tree-type month' option was added to org-capture-templates to
  203. group new datetime entries by month.
  204. *** New option to show source buffers using "plain" display-buffer
  205. There is a new option ~plain~ to ~org-src-window-setup~ to show source
  206. buffers using ~display-buffer~. This allows users to control how
  207. source buffers are displayed by modifying ~display-buffer-alist~ or
  208. ~display-buffer-base-action~.
  209. *** New option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~
  210. Archiving a subtree used to always save the target archive buffer.
  211. Commit [[https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode/commit/b186d1d7][b186d1d7]] changed this behavior by always not saving the target
  212. buffer, because batch archiving from agenda could take too much time.
  213. This new option ~org-archive-subtree-save-file-p~ defaults to the
  214. value =from-org= so that archiving a subtree will save the target
  215. buffer when done from an org-mode buffer, but not from the agenda.
  216. You can also set this option to =t= or to =from-agenda=.
  217. *** New option ~org-show-notification-timeout~
  218. This option will add a timeout to notifications.
  219. *** New option ~org-startup-numerated~
  220. When this option is =t=, Org files will start using ~(org-num-mode 1)~
  221. and headings will be visually numerated.
  222. You can turn this on/off on a per-file basis with =#+startup: num= or
  223. =#+startup: nonum=.
  224. *** New option ~org-latex-to-html-convert-command~
  225. This new option allows you to convert a LaTeX fragment directly into
  226. HTML.
  227. *** New hook ~org-agenda-filter-hook~
  228. Functions in this hook are run after ~org-agenda-filter~ is called.
  229. ** Removed or renamed functions and variables
  230. *** Deprecated ~org-flag-drawer~ function
  231. Use ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ instead.
  232. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-maybe~ function
  233. Use ~org-hide-block-toggle~ instead.
  234. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-all~ function
  235. This function was not used in the code base, and has no clear use
  236. either. It has been marked for future removal. Please contact the
  237. mailing list if you use this function.
  238. *** Deprecated ~org-return-indent~ function
  239. In Elisp code, use ~(org-return t)~ instead. Interactively, =C-j= is
  240. now bound to ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~, which indents the new line
  241. when ~electric-indent-mode~ is disabled.
  242. *** Removed ~org-maybe-keyword-time-regexp~
  243. The variable was not used in the code base.
  244. *** Removed ~org-export-special-keywords~
  245. The variable was not used in the code base.
  246. *** Renamed ~org-at-property-block-p~
  247. The new name is ~org-at-property-drawer-p~, which is less confusing.
  248. *** Renamed ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~
  249. See [[*~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~]].
  250. *** Renamed priority options
  251. From ~org-lowest-priority~ to ~org-priority-lowest~.
  252. From ~org-default-priority~ to ~org-priority-default~.
  253. From ~org-highest-priority~ to ~org-priority-highest~.
  254. From ~org-enable-priority-commands~ to ~org-priority-enable-commands~.
  255. From ~org-show-priority~ to ~org-priority-show~.
  256. ** Miscellaneous
  257. *** Forward/backward paragraph functions in line with the rest of Emacs
  258. ~org-forward-paragraph~ and ~org-backward-paragraph~, bound to
  259. ~<C-UP>~ and ~<C-DOWN>~ functions mimic more closely behaviour of
  260. ~forward-paragraph~ and ~backward-paragraph~ functions when
  261. available.
  262. They also accept an optional argument for multiple calls.
  263. See their docstring for details.
  264. *** ~org-table-to-lisp~ no longer checks if point is at a table
  265. The caller is now responsible for the check. It can use, e.g.,
  266. ~org-at-table-p~.
  267. The function is also much more efficient than it used to be, even on
  268. very large tables.
  269. *** New function : ~org-collect-keywords~
  270. *** Drawers' folding use an API similar to block's
  271. Tooling for folding drawers interactively or programmatically is now
  272. on par with block folding. In particular, the new
  273. ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ function is the central place for drawer
  274. folding.
  275. *** Duration can be read and written in compact form
  276. ~org-duration-to-minutes~ understands =1d3h5min= as a duration,
  277. whereas ~org-duration-from-minutes~ can output this compact form if
  278. the duration format contains the symbol ~compact~.
  279. *** Fontify whole TODO headlines
  280. This feature is the same as ~org-fontify-done-headline~, but for TODO
  281. headlines instead. This allows you to distinguish TODO headlines from
  282. normal headlines. The face can be customized via ~org-headline-todo~.
  283. *** C-n, C-p, SPC and DEL in agenda commands dispatch window
  284. You can now use =C-n=, =C-p=, =SPC= and =DEL= key to scroll up and
  285. down the agenda and attach dispatch window.
  286. *** =<C-c C-c>= in agenda calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~
  287. Both =<C-c C-q>= and =<C-c C-c>= set the tags of the headline in the
  288. Org buffer. Both keybindings are now available from the agenda too.
  289. *** New option in ~org-attach-store-link-p~
  290. ~org-attach-store-link-p~ has a new option to store a file link to the
  291. attachment.
  292. *** New default value for ~org-file-apps~
  293. The new value uses Emacs as the application for opening directory.
  294. *** Allowed empty HTML extension
  295. Using =(setq org-html-extension "")= or setting the HTML extension in
  296. any fashion will produce the expected output, with no trailing period
  297. to the resulting HTML file.
  298. *** New =org-refile.el= file
  299. Org refile variables and functions have been moved to a new file.
  300. *** Handle repeated tasks with =.+= type and hours step
  301. A task using a =.+= repeater and hours step is repeated starting from
  302. now. E.g.,
  303. #+begin_example
  304. ,,** TODO Wash my hands
  305. DEADLINE: <2019-04-05 08:00 Sun .+1h>
  306. Marking this DONE shifts the date to exactly one hour from now.
  307. #+end_example
  308. *** The end of a 7 years old bug
  309. This bug [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-08/msg00072.html][originally reported]] by Matt Lundin and investigated by Andrew
  310. Hyatt has been fixed. Thanks to both of them.
  311. *** Format of equation reference in HTML export can be specified
  312. By default, HTML (via MathJax) and LaTeX export equation references
  313. using different commands. LaTeX must use ~\ref{%s}~ because it is used
  314. for all labels; however, HTML (via MathJax) uses ~\eqref{%s}~ for
  315. equations producing inconsistent output. New option
  316. ~org-html-equation-reference-format~ sets the command used in HTML
  317. export.
  318. *** ob-haskell: add support for compilation with =:compile= header argument
  319. By default, Haskell blocks are interpreted. By adding =:compile yes=
  320. to a Haskell source block, it will be compiled, executed and the
  321. results will be displayed.
  322. *** Support for ~org-edit-special~ with LaTeX fragments.
  323. Calling ~org-edit-special~ on an inline LaTeX fragment calls a new
  324. function, ~org-edit-latex-fragment~. This functions in a comparable
  325. manner to editing inline source blocks, bringing up a minibuffer set
  326. to LaTeX mode. The math-mode deliminators are read only.
  327. *** org-capture: ~org-capture-current-plist~ accessible during ~org-capture-mode-hook~
  328. * Version 9.3
  329. ** Incompatible changes
  330. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  331. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  332. bracket links.
  333. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  334. to the following rules:
  335. 1. All =[= and =]= characters in the URI must be escaped;
  336. 2. Every =\= character preceding either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  337. 3. Every =\= character at the end of the URI must be escaped.
  338. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  339. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  340. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  341. syntax:
  342. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  343. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  344. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  345. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  346. is non-nil."
  347. (interactive "P")
  348. (org-with-point-at 1
  349. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  350. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  351. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  352. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  353. (= (match-beginning 0)
  354. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  355. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  356. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  357. (uri-end (save-excursion
  358. (goto-char uri-start)
  359. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  360. (match-beginning 0)))
  361. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  362. (when (or no-query
  363. (y-or-n-p
  364. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  365. uri)))
  366. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  367. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  368. #+end_src
  369. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  370. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  371. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  372. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  373. group 3.
  374. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  375. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  376. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  377. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  378. behavior will not happen automatically.
  379. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  380. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  381. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  382. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  383. it is.
  384. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  385. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  386. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  387. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  388. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  389. You can get the old behavior back with the following:
  390. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  391. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  392. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  393. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  394. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  395. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  396. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  397. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  398. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  399. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  400. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  401. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  402. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  403. since now it's implicitly always true.
  404. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  405. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  406. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  407. auto-commit attachments to git:
  408. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  409. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  410. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  411. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  412. ** New features
  413. *** New option to wrap source code lines in HTML export
  414. When new option ~html-wrap-src-lines~ (with variable
  415. ~org-html-wrap-src-lines~) is non-nil, HTML export wraps source code
  416. lines in HTML ~code~ elements.
  417. *** New option to handle schedules and deadlines in iCalendar export
  418. Export ignore done tasks with a deadline when
  419. ~org-icalendar-use-deadline~ contains ~event-if-todo-not-done~.
  420. Likewise, scheduled done tasks are also ignored when
  421. ~org-icalendar-use-scheduled~ contains the same symbol.
  422. *** Add ~split-window-right~ option for src block edit window placement
  423. Given the increasing popularity of wide screen monitors, splitting
  424. horizontally may make more sense than splitting vertically. An
  425. option, ~split-window-right~, to request horizontal splitting has been
  426. added to ~org-src-window-setup~.
  427. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  428. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  429. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  430. and extra options have been added as well.
  431. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  432. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  433. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  434. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  435. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  436. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  437. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  438. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  439. account).
  440. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  441. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  442. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  443. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  444. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favor of the shorter
  445. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  446. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  447. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  448. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  449. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  450. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  451. was the behavior before this change.
  452. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  453. precedence and will be used.
  454. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  455. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  456. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  457. your own function and add it to the beginning of
  458. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~list~ if you want to customize the ID
  459. based folder structure.
  460. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  461. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  462. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  463. removed.
  464. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  465. (defun org-update-attach-properties ()
  466. "Change properties for Org-Attach."
  467. (interactive)
  468. (org-with-point-at 1
  469. (while (outline-next-heading)
  470. (let ((DIR (org--property-local-values "ATTACH_DIR" nil)))

  473. (org-delete-property "ATTACH_DIR"))))
  474. (org-delete-property-globally "ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT")))
  475. #+end_src
  476. For those who hate breaking changes, even though the changes are made
  477. to clean things up; fear not. ATTACH_DIR will still continue to work.
  478. It's just not documented any longer. When you get the chance, run the
  479. code above to clean things up anyways!
  480. **** New hooks
  481. Two hooks are added to org-attach:
  482. - org-attach-after-change-hook
  483. - org-attach-open-hook
  484. They are added mostly for internal restructuring purposes, but can
  485. ofc. be used for other things as well.
  486. *** New link-type: Attachment
  487. Attachment-links are now first-class citizens. They mimic file-links
  488. in everything they do but use the existing attachment-folder as a base
  489. when expanding the links. Both =DIR= and =ID= properties are used to
  490. try to resolve the links, in exactly the same way as Org-Attach uses
  491. those properties.
  492. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  493. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  494. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  495. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  496. numbered list to a lettered list.
  497. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  498. You can add new dynamic blocks with function
  499. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All such dynamic blocks can be used by
  500. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  501. *** Babel
  502. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  503. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  504. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  505. parameter.
  506. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  507. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  508. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  509. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  510. changes in the buffer.
  511. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  512. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  513. a headline.
  514. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  515. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  516. ~:caption~.
  517. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  518. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  519. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  520. attachment directory.
  521. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  522. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  523. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  524. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  525. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  526. interpreted as publicly visible, accessible to a specific group, and
  527. private respectively.
  528. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  529. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  530. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  531. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  532. system than the main Org document. For example:
  533. #+begin_example
  534. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  535. #+end_example
  536. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  537. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  538. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  539. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  540. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  541. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  542. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  543. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  544. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  545. LaTeX font locking.
  546. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learned to shift backward in time
  547. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  548. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  549. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  550. days in the past.
  551. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  552. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  553. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  554. This is a function for convenience.
  555. *** New parameter for SQL Babel blocks: ~:dbconnection~
  556. The new parameter ~:dbconnection~ allows to specify a connection name
  557. in a SQL block header: this name is used to look up connection
  558. parameters in ~sql-connection-alist~.
  559. *** New =:scale= attribute supported by LaTeX exporters
  560. The builtin "latex" exporters now accept and use a =:scale= attribute,
  561. which scales an image by a given factor.
  562. This attribute is wrapped around the =scale= parameter of LaTeX's
  563. =\includegraphics= (bitmap images) or a TiKZ's =\scalebox=.
  564. Therefore, its value should be some string palatable to LaTeX as
  565. a positive float Its default value is an empty string (i.e. disabled).
  566. This attribute overrides the =:width= and =:height= attributes.
  567. #+begin_example
  568. ,#+name: Beastie
  569. ,#+caption: I think I saw this curious horse already, but where ?
  570. ,#+LATEX_ATTR: :scale 2
  571. [[https://orgmode.org/img/org-mode-unicorn-logo.png]]
  572. #+end_example
  573. *** Allow specifying the target for a table of contents
  574. The =+TOC= keyword now accepts a =:target:= attribute that specifies
  575. the headline to use for making the table of contents.
  576. #+begin_example
  577. ,* Target
  578. :PROPERTIES:
  579. :CUSTOM_ID: TargetSection
  580. :END:
  581. ,** Heading A
  582. ,** Heading B
  583. ,* Another section
  584. ,#+TOC: headlines 1 :target "#TargetSection"
  585. #+end_example
  586. ** New functions
  587. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  588. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  589. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  590. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  591. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  592. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  593. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  594. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  595. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  596. ** Removed functions and variables
  597. *** Removed Org Drill
  598. You can install it back from MELPA.
  599. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  600. *** ~org-capture-insert-template-here~
  601. *** ~org-attach-directory~
  602. It has been deprecated in favor of ~org-attach-id-dir~ which is less
  603. ambiguous given the restructured org-attach.
  604. *** ~org-enable-fixed-width-editor~
  605. This variable was not used through the code base.
  606. ** Miscellaneous
  607. *** Change signature for ~org-list-to-subtree~
  608. The function now accepts the level of the subtree as an optional
  609. argument. It no longer deduces it from the current level.
  610. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  611. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  612. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  613. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  614. *** ~org-table-copy-down~ supports patterns
  615. When ~org-table-copy-increment~ is non-nil, it is now possible to
  616. increment fields like =A1=, or =0A=, i.e., any string prefixed or
  617. suffixed with a whole number.
  618. *** No more special indentation for description items
  619. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  620. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  621. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  622. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  623. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  624. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  625. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  626. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  627. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  628. interface.
  629. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  630. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  631. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  632. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  633. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  634. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  635. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  636. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  637. *** New variable ~org-attach-commands~
  638. This variable makes it possible to customize the list of commands for
  639. the attachment dispatcher.
  640. *** New ID method based on timestamp
  641. If one chooses, it is now possible to create ID's based on timestamp
  642. (ISO8601) instead of UUID by changing org-id-method to ts.
  643. For an improved folder structure when using timestamp as ID, make sure
  644. to promote ~org-attach-id-ts-folder-format~ to the first element of
  645. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function-list~ in your configuration at the
  646. same time.
  647. *** New customization: ~org-id-locations-relative~
  648. New customization to make the persisting of org-id-locations between
  649. sessions to store links to files as relative instead of absolute. The
  650. links will be stored as relative to the path of org-id-locations-file.
  651. *** ~org-ctrl-c-tab~ is functional before the first headline
  652. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  653. Also fold everything below the chosen level. Former behavior was to
  654. leave unfolded subtrees unfolded.
  655. *** ~org-kill-note-or-show-branches~ is functional before the first headline
  656. I.e. treat the whole file as if it was a subtree.
  657. *** Respect narrowing when agenda command is restricted to buffer
  658. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts the column at point position
  659. Before, the new column was inserted to the right of the column at
  660. point position.
  661. *** Table column deletion now consistent with row deletion
  662. Point stays in the column at deletion, except when deleting the
  663. rightmost column.
  664. * Version 9.2
  665. ** Incompatible changes
  666. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  667. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  668. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  669. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  670. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  671. to use =orgalist.el=, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  672. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  673. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  674. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  675. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  676. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  677. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  678. you probably need to update it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  679. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  680. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  681. : (require 'org-tempo)
  682. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  683. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  684. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  685. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  686. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  687. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  688. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  689. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  690. unique, Noweb reference.
  691. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  692. ,#+NAME: foo
  693. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  694. 1
  695. ,#+END_SRC
  696. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  697. 2
  698. ,#+END_SRC
  699. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  700. <<foo>>
  701. ,#+END_SRC
  702. #+END_SRC
  703. should become
  704. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  705. ,#+NAME: foo
  706. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  707. 1
  708. ,#+END_SRC
  709. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  710. 2
  711. ,#+END_SRC
  712. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  713. <<bar>>
  714. ,#+END_SRC
  715. #+END_SRC
  716. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  717. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  718. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  719. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  720. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  721. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  722. :
  723. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  724. Check the full docstring for more.
  725. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  726. Here is the new docstring:
  727. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  728. :
  729. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  730. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  731. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  732. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  733. : variables is set.
  734. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  735. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  736. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  737. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  738. examples:
  739. #+begin_example
  740. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  741. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  742. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  743. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  744. #+end_example
  745. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  746. #+begin_example
  747. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  748. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  749. #+end_example
  750. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  751. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  752. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  753. aligning.
  754. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  755. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  756. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  757. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  758. #+END_EXAMPLE
  759. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  760. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  761. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  762. local tags. In order to get the old behavior back, you can use:
  763. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  764. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  765. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  766. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  767. code-point.
  768. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  769. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  770. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  771. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  772. dedicated column.
  773. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  774. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  775. ** New features
  776. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  777. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  778. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  779. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  780. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  781. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  782. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  783. #+begin_src clojure :session
  784. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  785. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  786. #+end_src
  787. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  788. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  789. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  790. #+begin_example
  791. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  792. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  793. ,#+end_src
  794. ,#+results:
  795. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  796. #+end_example
  797. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  798. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  799. console.log("stardiviner")
  800. #+end_src
  801. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  802. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  803. console.log("stardiviner")
  804. #+end_src
  805. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  806. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  807. console.log("stardiviner")
  808. #+end_src
  809. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  810. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  811. add a label to the rendered equation.
  812. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  813. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  814. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  815. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  816. manual for details.
  817. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  818. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  819. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  820. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  821. ,* Top [1/2]
  822. ,** DONE Completed
  823. ,** TODO Working
  824. #+END_SRC
  825. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  826. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  827. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  828. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  829. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  830. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  831. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  832. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  833. its previous state.
  834. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  835. size.
  836. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  837. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  838. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  839. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  840. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  841. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  842. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  843. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  844. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  845. prop
  846. "0")))
  847. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  848. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  849. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  850. #+END_SRC
  851. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  852. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  853. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  854. ,* All shipments
  855. ,** Shipment 1
  856. :PROPERTIES:
  857. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  858. :Bananas: 4
  859. :END:
  860. ,** Shipment 2
  861. :PROPERTIES:
  862. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  863. :BANANAS: 7
  864. :END:
  865. #+END_SRC
  866. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  867. you should expect to see something like:
  868. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  869. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  870. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  871. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  872. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  873. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  874. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  875. #+END_EXAMPLE
  876. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  877. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  878. matcher.
  879. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  880. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  881. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  882. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  883. parameters. See example below.
  884. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  885. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  886. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521

  894. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  895. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  896. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  897. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  898. remove it.
  899. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  900. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  901. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  902. ** New commands and functions
  903. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  904. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  905. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  906. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  907. See docstring for details.
  908. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  909. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  910. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  911. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  912. See docstring for details.
  913. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  914. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  915. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  916. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  917. will go back to the widen state.
  918. *** ~org-browse-news~
  919. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read information
  920. about the last major release.
  921. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  922. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  923. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  924. on the context.
  925. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  926. ** Removed commands and functions
  927. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  928. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  929. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  930. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  931. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  932. It was not used throughout the code base.
  933. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  934. It was not used throughout code base.
  935. *** ~org-context-p~
  936. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  937. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  938. It is no longer used in the code base.
  939. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  940. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  941. ** Removed options
  942. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  943. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  944. ** Miscellaneous
  945. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  946. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  947. handled specially by default.
  948. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  949. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  950. handled specially by default.
  951. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  952. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  953. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  954. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  955. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  956. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  957. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  958. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  959. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  960. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  961. reciprocal.
  962. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  963. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  964. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  965. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  966. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  967. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  968. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  969. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  970. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  971. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  972. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  973. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  974. rules instead of by code-point.
  975. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  976. * Version 9.1
  977. ** Incompatible changes
  978. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  979. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  980. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  981. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  982. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  983. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  984. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  985. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  986. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  987. accordingly.
  988. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  989. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  990. is to turn, e.g.,
  991. : (file (sexp))
  992. into
  993. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  994. *** Deleted contributed packages
  995. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  996. from the contrib/ directory.
  997. You can now find them here :
  998. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  999. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  1000. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  1001. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  1002. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  1003. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  1004. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  1005. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  1006. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  1007. changes to site-map generation.
  1008. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  1009. to the following
  1010. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  1011. (lambda (entry style project)
  1012. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  1013. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  1014. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  1015. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  1016. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  1017. (t entry)))
  1018. #+END_SRC
  1019. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  1020. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  1021. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  1022. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  1023. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  1024. list as their first argument.
  1025. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  1026. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  1027. See docstring for details.
  1028. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  1029. See docstring for changes.
  1030. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  1031. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  1032. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  1033. details.
  1034. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  1035. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  1036. keywords.
  1037. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  1038. It used to return nil.
  1039. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  1040. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  1041. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  1042. MELPA repository.
  1043. ** New features
  1044. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  1045. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  1046. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  1047. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  1048. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  1049. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  1050. specified as in "Europe/London".
  1051. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  1052. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  1053. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  1054. directory to old, ID based one.
  1055. *** New Org duration library
  1056. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  1057. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  1058. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  1059. docstrings.
  1060. *** Agenda
  1061. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  1062. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  1063. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  1064. See docstring for details.
  1065. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1066. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  1067. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  1068. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  1069. the default setting.
  1070. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  1071. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  1072. directories in published site-maps.
  1073. *** Babel
  1074. **** Scheme: support for tables
  1075. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  1076. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  1077. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  1078. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  1079. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1080. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  1081. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  1082. with the content to be added.
  1083. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  1084. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  1085. before this let form.
  1086. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  1087. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  1088. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  1089. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  1090. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  1091. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  1092. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1093. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  1094. window/buffer.
  1095. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  1096. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  1097. option in the code block's header like this:
  1098. #+begin_example
  1099. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  1100. (dotimes [n 10]
  1101. (println n ".")
  1102. (Thread/sleep 500))
  1103. ,#+END_SRC
  1104. #+end_example
  1105. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  1106. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  1107. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  1108. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  1109. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  1110. =#+RESULTS= section.
  1111. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  1112. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  1113. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  1114. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  1115. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  1116. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  1117. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  1118. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  1119. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  1120. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  1121. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  1122. results in a beamer presentation.
  1123. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  1124. [[http://plantuml.com/][Plantuml]] source blocks now support the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/prologue.html#prologue][~:prologue~]], [[https://orgmode.org/manual/epilogue.html#epilogue][~:epilogue~]] and
  1125. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  1126. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  1127. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  1128. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  1129. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  1130. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1131. #+begin_example
  1132. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  1133. Select * From Users
  1134. Where clue > 0
  1135. ,#+END_SRC
  1136. #+end_example
  1137. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  1138. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  1139. against HP Vertica.
  1140. 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]]
  1141. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1142. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1143. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  1144. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  1145. ,#+END_SRC
  1146. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1147. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  1148. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  1149. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  1150. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  1151. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  1152. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  1153. using ~:namespaces~:
  1154. #+begin_example
  1155. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  1156. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  1157. ,#+END_SRC
  1158. #+end_example
  1159. **** Support for Vala language
  1160. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  1161. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  1162. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  1163. 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~]]
  1164. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  1165. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  1166. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  1167. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  1168. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  1169. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  1170. *** Export
  1171. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  1172. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  1173. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  1174. contents, are now supported.
  1175. **** Add Slovenian translations
  1176. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  1177. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  1178. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  1179. details.
  1180. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  1181. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  1182. manual for details.
  1183. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  1184. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  1185. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  1186. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  1187. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  1188. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  1189. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  1190. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  1191. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  1192. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  1193. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  1194. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  1195. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  1196. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  1197. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  1198. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  1199. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  1200. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  1201. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  1202. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  1203. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  1204. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  1205. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  1206. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  1207. to the document.
  1208. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  1209. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  1210. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  1211. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  1212. ~uniquify.el~.
  1213. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  1214. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  1215. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  1216. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  1217. to ~org-file-contents~.
  1218. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  1219. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  1220. that file cache.
  1221. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  1222. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  1223. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  1224. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  1225. ** Removed functions
  1226. *** Org Timeline
  1227. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  1228. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  1229. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1230. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1231. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1232. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1233. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  1234. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1235. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  1236. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  1237. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1238. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1239. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1240. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1241. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  1242. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  1243. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1244. ** Removed options
  1245. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  1246. For an equivalent to a =nil= value, set
  1247. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  1248. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to =t=.
  1249. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  1250. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  1251. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1252. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  1253. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  1254. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  1255. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  1256. equivalent to the removed format string.
  1257. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  1258. Setting it to a =nil= value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  1259. keys).
  1260. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  1261. The variable is now a boolean.
  1262. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  1263. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  1264. ** New functions
  1265. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  1266. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  1267. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  1268. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  1269. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  1270. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1271. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  1272. ** Miscellaneous
  1273. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  1274. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  1275. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  1276. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  1277. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  1278. *** Allow multiple columns view
  1279. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  1280. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  1281. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  1282. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  1283. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  1284. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  1285. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  1286. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  1287. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  1288. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  1289. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  1290. used to describe the time span.
  1291. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  1292. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  1293. far away in the future.
  1294. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  1295. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  1296. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  1297. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  1298. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  1299. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  1300. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  1301. See docstring for details.
  1302. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  1303. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  1304. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  1305. is now obsolete.
  1306. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  1307. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  1308. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  1309. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  1310. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  1311. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  1312. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  1313. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  1314. suitable as a default value.
  1315. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  1316. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  1317. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  1318. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are covered by
  1319. rewrite rules.
  1320. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  1321. * Version 9.0
  1322. ** Incompatible changes
  1323. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  1324. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  1325. above is suggested.
  1326. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  1327. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  1328. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  1329. our mailing list.
  1330. *** New syntax for export blocks
  1331. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  1332. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  1333. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1334. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  1335. ...
  1336. ,#+END_EXPORT
  1337. #+END_SRC
  1338. instead of
  1339. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1340. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  1341. ...
  1342. ,#+END_backend
  1343. #+END_SRC
  1344. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  1345. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1346. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  1347. #+END_SRC
  1348. becomes
  1349. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1350. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  1351. #+END_SRC
  1352. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  1353. using previous syntax:
  1354. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1355. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  1356. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1357. (interactive)
  1358. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1359. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1360. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1361. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1362. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1363. t)))
  1364. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1365. (goto-char (point-min))
  1366. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1367. (save-excursion
  1368. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  1369. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1370. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1371. (save-excursion
  1372. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1373. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1374. (forward-char)
  1375. (insert "EXPORT")
  1376. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1377. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1378. (let ((include-re
  1379. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1380. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1381. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1382. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1383. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1384. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1385. #+END_SRC
  1386. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1387. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1388. removed.
  1389. *** Footnotes changes
  1390. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1391. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1392. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1393. constructs are now unsupported.
  1394. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1395. =[fn:N]=.
  1396. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1397. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1398. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1399. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1400. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1401. exists.
  1402. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1403. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1404. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1405. is straightforward. For example
  1406. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1407. becomes
  1408. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1409. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1410. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1411. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1412. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1413. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1414. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1415. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1416. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1417. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1418. such, the following
  1419. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1420. ,* Headline
  1421. :PROPERTIES:
  1422. :exports: code
  1423. :var: a=1 b=2
  1424. :var+: c=3
  1425. :END:
  1426. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1427. should be written instead
  1428. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1429. ,* Headline
  1430. :PROPERTIES:
  1431. :header-args: :exports code
  1432. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1433. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1434. :END:
  1435. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1436. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1437. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1438. ** New features
  1439. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1440. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1441. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1442. #+begin_example
  1443. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1444. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1445. #+end_example
  1446. Old-style links such as
  1447. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1448. continue to be supported.
  1449. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1450. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1451. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1452. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1453. lists.
  1454. *** New Org linter library
  1455. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1456. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1457. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1458. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1459. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1460. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1461. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1462. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1463. *** Export
  1464. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1465. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1466. details.
  1467. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1468. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1469. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1470. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1471. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1472. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1473. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1474. for more details.
  1475. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1476. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1477. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1478. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1479. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1480. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1481. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1482. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1483. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1484. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1485. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1486. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1487. used.
  1488. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1489. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1490. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1491. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1492. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1493. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1494. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1495. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1496. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1497. (message "This is line 21")
  1498. ,#+END_SRC
  1499. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1500. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1501. (message "This is line 32")
  1502. ,#+END_SRC
  1503. #+END_SRC
  1504. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1505. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1506. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1507. export.
  1508. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1509. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1510. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1511. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1512. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1513. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1514. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1515. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1516. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1517. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1518. *** Babel
  1519. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1520. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1521. **** Support for Lua language
  1522. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1523. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1524. **** Support for Stan language
  1525. New ob-stan.el library.
  1526. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1527. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1528. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1529. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1530. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1531. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1532. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1533. that does not end in ".stan".
  1534. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1535. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1536. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1537. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1538. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1539. mandatory):
  1540. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1541. :engine oracle
  1542. :dbhost <host.com>
  1543. :dbport <1521>
  1544. :dbuser <username>
  1545. :database <database>
  1546. :dbpassword <secret>
  1547. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1548. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1549. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1550. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1551. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1552. like this:
  1553. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1554. :engine mssql
  1555. :dbhost <host.com>
  1556. :dbuser <username>
  1557. :dbpassword <secret>
  1558. :database <database>
  1559. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1560. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1561. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1562. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1563. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1564. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1565. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1566. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1567. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1568. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1569. include:
  1570. All Diagrams:
  1571. - png ::
  1572. - svg ::
  1573. - eps ::
  1574. - pdf ::
  1575. - vdx ::
  1576. - txt :: ASCII art
  1577. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1578. Class Diagrams:
  1579. - xmi ::
  1580. - html ::
  1581. State Diagrams:
  1582. - scxml ::
  1583. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1584. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1585. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1586. @startuml
  1587. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1588. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1589. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1590. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1591. @enduml
  1592. #+end_src
  1593. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1594. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1595. details and setup information.
  1596. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1597. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1598. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1599. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1600. for details.
  1601. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1602. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1603. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1604. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1605. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1606. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1607. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1608. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1609. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1610. by ISO week and not by month.
  1611. For example:
  1612. : * 2015
  1613. : ** 2015-W35
  1614. : ** 2015-W36
  1615. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1616. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1617. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1618. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1619. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1620. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1621. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1622. *** Columns view
  1623. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1624. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1625. buffer unconditionally.
  1626. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1627. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1628. **** Allow custom summaries
  1629. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1630. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1631. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1632. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1633. types.
  1634. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1635. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1636. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1637. a git repository.
  1638. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1639. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1640. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1641. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1642. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1643. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1644. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1645. first footnote.
  1646. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1647. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1648. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1649. the manual for details.
  1650. *** Links are now customizable
  1651. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1652. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1653. ** New functions
  1654. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1655. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1656. *** ~org-show-children~
  1657. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1658. ** Removed functions
  1659. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1660. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1661. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1662. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1663. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1664. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1665. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1666. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1667. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1668. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1669. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1670. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1671. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1672. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1673. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1674. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1675. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1676. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1677. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1678. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1679. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1680. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1681. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1682. The affected functions are:
  1683. - ~org-count~
  1684. - ~org-remove-if~
  1685. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1686. - ~org-reduce~
  1687. - ~org-every~
  1688. - ~org-some~
  1689. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1690. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1691. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1692. ** Removed options
  1693. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1694. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1695. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1696. let those libraries operate.
  1697. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1698. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1699. plain list.
  1700. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1701. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1702. ** Miscellaneous
  1703. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1704. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1705. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1706. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1707. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1708. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1709. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1710. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1711. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1712. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1713. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1714. Org files.
  1715. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1716. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1717. indentation.
  1718. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1719. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1720. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1721. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1722. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1723. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1724. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1725. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1726. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1727. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1728. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1729. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1730. to the article's original group.
  1731. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1732. The calling convention has changed.
  1733. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1734. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1735. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1736. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1737. called with 6 parameters.
  1738. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1739. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1740. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1741. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1742. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1743. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1744. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1745. the end of the string.
  1746. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1747. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1748. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1749. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1750. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1751. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1752. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1753. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1754. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1755. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1756. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1757. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1758. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1759. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1760. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1761. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1762. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1763. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1764. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1765. future.)
  1766. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1767. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1768. modified anyway.
  1769. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1770. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1771. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1772. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1773. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1774. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1775. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1776. indication letter was solely J.
  1777. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1778. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1779. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1780. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1781. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1782. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1783. a ~defvar~.
  1784. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1785. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1786. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1787. * Version 8.3
  1788. ** Incompatible changes
  1789. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1790. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1791. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1792. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1793. logged before the property drawer.
  1794. The following function will repair them:
  1795. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1796. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1797. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1798. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1799. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1800. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1801. (goto-char (point-min))
  1802. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1803. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1804. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1805. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1806. (org-map-entries
  1807. (lambda ()
  1808. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1809. (save-excursion
  1810. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1811. (forward-line)
  1812. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1813. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1814. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1815. (save-excursion
  1816. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1817. (eq (org-element-type
  1818. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1819. 'drawer))))
  1820. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1821. (match-beginning 0)
  1822. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1823. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1824. #+END_SRC
  1825. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1826. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1827. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1828. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1829. into account when exporting.
  1830. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1831. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1832. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1833. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1834. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1835. 5.14 (2008).
  1836. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1837. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1838. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1839. ,* Headline
  1840. :PROPERTIES:
  1841. :CATEGORY: some category
  1842. :END:
  1843. #+END_SRC
  1844. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1845. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1846. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1847. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1848. see.
  1849. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1850. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1851. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1852. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1853. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1854. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1855. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1856. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1857. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1858. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1859. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1860. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1861. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1862. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1863. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1864. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1865. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1866. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1867. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1868. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1869. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1870. *** Functions signature changes
  1871. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1872. docstring for more information.
  1873. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1874. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1875. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1876. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1877. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1878. - ~org-link-search~
  1879. ** New features
  1880. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1881. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1882. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1883. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1884. :lexical yes
  1885. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1886. :lexical no
  1887. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1888. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1889. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1890. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1891. without changing the headline.
  1892. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1893. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to Org mode.
  1894. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1895. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1896. The following in-buffer definition:
  1897. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1898. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1899. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1900. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1901. #+END_SRC
  1902. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1903. - Group
  1904. - SubOne
  1905. - SubOne1
  1906. - SubOne2
  1907. - SubTwo
  1908. - SubTwo1
  1909. - SubTwo2
  1910. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1911. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1912. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1913. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1914. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1915. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1916. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1917. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1918. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1919. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1920. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1921. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1922. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1923. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1924. #+END_SRC
  1925. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1926. grouptags; { }.
  1927. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1928. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1929. "sub-tags".
  1930. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1931. Example use:
  1932. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1933. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1934. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1935. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1936. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1937. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1938. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1939. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1940. levels anymore.
  1941. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1942. is also used as a filter.
  1943. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1944. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1945. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1946. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1947. exclude.
  1948. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1949. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1950. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1951. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1952. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1953. New ob-processing.el library.
  1954. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1955. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1956. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1957. Check the documentation for more details.
  1958. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1959. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1960. The new behavior is the following:
  1961. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1962. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1963. buffer;
  1964. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1965. subtree;
  1966. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1967. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1968. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1969. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1970. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1971. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1972. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1973. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1974. more information.
  1975. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1976. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1977. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1978. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1979. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1980. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1981. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1982. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1983. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1984. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1985. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1986. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1987. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1988. default is =hline=.
  1989. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1990. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1991. a source block.
  1992. *** New option in ASCII export
  1993. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1994. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1995. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1996. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1997. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1998. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1999. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  2000. increased. See manual for details.
  2001. *** Export inline source blocks
  2002. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  2003. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  2004. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  2005. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  2006. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  2007. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  2008. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  2009. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  2010. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  2011. more features. See docstring for details.
  2012. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  2013. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  2014. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  2015. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  2016. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  2017. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  2018. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2019. : This sentence is false.
  2020. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  2021. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  2022. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  2023. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  2024. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  2025. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  2026. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  2027. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  2028. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  2029. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  2030. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  2031. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  2032. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  2033. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  2034. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  2035. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  2036. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  2037. each time.
  2038. *** ASCII plot
  2039. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  2040. for details.
  2041. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  2042. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  2043. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  2044. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  2045. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  2046. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  2047. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  2048. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  2049. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  2050. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  2051. See the docstring for more information.
  2052. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  2053. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  2054. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  2055. property is inherited by children.
  2056. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  2057. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  2058. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  2059. to sort a table.
  2060. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  2061. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  2062. for details.
  2063. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  2064. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  2065. countdown timers.
  2066. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  2067. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  2068. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  2069. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  2070. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  2071. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  2072. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  2073. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  2074. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  2075. manual for details.
  2076. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  2077. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  2078. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  2079. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  2080. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  2081. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  2082. leading spaces within table cells.
  2083. *** New MathJax configuration options
  2084. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  2085. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  2086. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  2087. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  2088. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  2089. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  2090. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  2091. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  2092. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  2093. keywords and properties.
  2094. *** Viewport support in html export
  2095. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  2096. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  2097. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  2098. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  2099. for details.
  2100. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  2101. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  2102. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  2103. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  2104. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  2105. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  2106. added to headline text.
  2107. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  2108. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  2109. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  2110. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  2111. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  2112. =#+TOC= keyword.
  2113. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  2114. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  2115. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  2116. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  2117. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  2118. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  2119. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  2120. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  2121. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  2122. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  2123. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  2124. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  2125. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  2126. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  2127. ** Removed functions
  2128. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  2129. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  2130. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  2131. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  2132. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  2133. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  2134. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  2135. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  2136. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  2137. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  2138. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  2139. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  2140. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  2141. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  2142. optional argument.
  2143. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  2144. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  2145. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  2146. ** Removed options
  2147. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  2148. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  2149. compatibility.
  2150. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  2151. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  2152. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  2153. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  2154. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  2155. document instead.
  2156. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  2157. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  2158. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  2159. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  2160. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  2161. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  2162. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell language is =shell=. To chose
  2163. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  2164. variable locally.
  2165. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  2166. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  2167. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  2168. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  2169. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  2170. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  2171. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  2172. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  2173. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  2174. removed.
  2175. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  2176. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  2177. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  2178. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  2179. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  2180. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  2181. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  2182. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  2183. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  2184. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  2185. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  2186. *** Removed comment-related filters
  2187. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  2188. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  2189. anymore.
  2190. ** Miscellaneous
  2191. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  2192. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  2193. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  2194. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  2195. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  2196. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  2197. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  2198. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  2199. labels colliding.
  2200. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  2201. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  2202. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  2203. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  2204. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  2205. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  2206. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  2207. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  2208. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  2209. particular test failure was introduced.
  2210. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  2211. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  2212. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  2213. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  2214. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  2215. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  2216. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  2217. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  2218. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  2219. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  2220. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  2221. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  2222. This helps spotting wrong links.
  2223. * Version 8.2
  2224. ** Incompatible changes
  2225. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  2226. This may require two changes in user config.
  2227. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  2228. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  2229. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  2230. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  2231. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  2232. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  2233. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  2234. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  2235. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  2236. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  2237. with this:
  2238. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  2239. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  2240. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  2241. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  2242. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  2243. So you need to replace
  2244. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  2245. by
  2246. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  2247. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  2248. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  2249. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  2250. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  2251. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  2252. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  2253. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  2254. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  2255. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  2256. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  2257. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  2258. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  2259. of a symbol.
  2260. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  2261. ** Important bugfixes
  2262. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  2263. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  2264. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  2265. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  2266. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  2267. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  2268. ** New features
  2269. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  2270. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  2271. of the list.
  2272. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  2273. - Support SVG images
  2274. - Support for .pgf files
  2275. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  2276. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  2277. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  2278. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  2279. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  2280. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  2281. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  2282. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  2283. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  2284. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  2285. in a paragraph-like way.
  2286. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2287. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  2288. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  2289. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  2290. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  2291. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  2292. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  2293. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  2294. which can then be passed to export functions like
  2295. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  2296. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  2297. registering a new back-end.
  2298. *** New agenda fortnight view
  2299. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  2300. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  2301. ** New options
  2302. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  2303. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  2304. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  2305. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  2306. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  2307. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  2308. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  2309. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  2310. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  2311. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  2312. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  2313. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  2314. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  2315. of =ox-rss.el=.
  2316. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  2317. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  2318. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  2319. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  2320. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  2321. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  2322. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  2323. If you set this to the following
  2324. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  2325. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  2326. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  2327. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  2328. =C-o= in tables.
  2329. ** New contributed packages
  2330. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  2331. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  2332. software.
  2333. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  2334. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  2335. ** Miscellaneous
  2336. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  2337. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  2338. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  2339. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  2340. the same with example blocks.
  2341. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  2342. release.
  2343. * Version 8.0.1
  2344. ** Installation
  2345. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  2346. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  2347. instructions:
  2348. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  2349. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  2350. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  2351. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  2352. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  2353. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  2354. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  2355. detailed explanations.
  2356. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2357. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2358. function has been called already.
  2359. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2360. installation.
  2361. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2362. ** Incompatible changes
  2363. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2364. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2365. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2366. you will have to update them.
  2367. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2368. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2369. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2370. **** New export engine
  2371. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2372. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2373. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2374. /all/ export back-ends.
  2375. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2376. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2377. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2378. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2379. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2380. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2381. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2382. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2383. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2384. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2385. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2386. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2387. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2388. should now be written
  2389. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2390. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2391. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2392. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2393. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2394. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2395. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2396. now fully removed.
  2397. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2398. remember templates into capture templates.
  2399. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2400. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2401. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2402. **** Note for third-party developers
  2403. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2404. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2405. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2406. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2407. code.
  2408. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2409. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2410. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2411. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2412. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2413. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2414. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2415. user-base.
  2416. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2417. - org-mac-message.el
  2418. - org-mew.el
  2419. - org-wl.el
  2420. - ox-freedmind.el
  2421. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2422. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2423. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2424. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2425. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy

  2472. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2473. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2474. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2475. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2476. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2477. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2478. entirely with Org.
  2479. ** New features
  2480. *** Export
  2481. **** New export generic options
  2482. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2483. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2484. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2485. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2486. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2487. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2488. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2489. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2490. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2491. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2492. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2493. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2494. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2495. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2496. contains time-stamps.
  2497. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2498. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2499. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2500. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2501. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2502. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2503. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2504. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2505. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2506. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2507. *** Structure editing
  2508. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2509. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2510. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2511. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2512. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2513. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2514. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2515. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2516. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2517. region.
  2518. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2519. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2520. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2521. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2522. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2523. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2524. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2525. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2526. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2527. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2528. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2529. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2530. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2531. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2532. forward and backward.
  2533. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2534. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2535. Now Org will sort this list
  2536. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2537. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2538. like this:
  2539. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2540. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2541. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2542. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2543. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2544. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2545. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2546. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2547. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2548. local variable.
  2549. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2550. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2551. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2552. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2553. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2554. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2555. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2556. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2557. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2558. option to =nil=.
  2559. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2560. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2561. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2562. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2563. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2564. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2565. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2566. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2567. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2568. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2569. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2570. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2571. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2572. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2573. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2574. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2575. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2576. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2577. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2578. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2579. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2580. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2581. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2582. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2583. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2584. control this globally or per agenda.
  2585. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2586. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2587. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2588. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2589. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2590. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2591. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2592. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2593. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2594. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2595. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2596. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2597. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2598. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2599. (kbd "@")
  2600. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2601. #+END_SRC
  2602. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2603. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2604. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2605. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2606. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2607. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2608. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2609. only show their description, not the full links.
  2610. *** Agenda
  2611. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2612. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2613. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2614. want to build a list of appointments.
  2615. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2616. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2617. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2618. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2619. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2620. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2621. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2622. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2623. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2624. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2625. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2626. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2627. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2628. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2629. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2630. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2631. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2632. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2633. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2634. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2635. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2636. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2637. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2638. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2639. These new options are available:
  2640. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2641. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2642. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2643. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2644. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2645. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2646. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2647. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2648. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2649. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2650. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2651. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2652. non-tagged headlines.
  2653. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2654. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2655. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2656. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2657. that take only =N= minutes.
  2658. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2659. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2660. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2661. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2662. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2663. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2664. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2665. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2666. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2667. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2668. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2669. list of notes.
  2670. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2671. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2672. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2673. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2674. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2675. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2676. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2677. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2678. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2679. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2680. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2681. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2682. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2683. outline tree.
  2684. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2685. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2686. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2687. asks for a confirmation.
  2688. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2689. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2690. the mark of the entry at point.
  2691. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2692. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2693. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2694. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2695. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2696. level 1.
  2697. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2698. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2699. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2700. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2701. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2702. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2703. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2704. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2705. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2706. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2707. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2708. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2709. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2710. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2711. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2712. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2713. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2714. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2715. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2716. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2717. Read the full docstring for details.
  2718. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2719. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2720. : * Task
  2721. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2722. *** Capture
  2723. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2724. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2725. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2726. capture template.
  2727. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2728. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2729. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2730. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2731. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2732. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2733. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2734. check against the name of the buffer.
  2735. *** Tag groups
  2736. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2737. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2738. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2739. of those tags.)
  2740. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2741. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2742. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2743. *** Links
  2744. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2745. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2746. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2747. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2748. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2749. as if the protocol was not known.
  2750. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2751. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2752. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2753. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2754. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2755. active.
  2756. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2757. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2758. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2759. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2760. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2761. When storing a link to a headline like
  2762. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2763. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2764. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2765. there is no description.
  2766. *** Table
  2767. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2768. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2769. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2770. those other formulas.
  2771. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2772. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2773. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2774. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2775. the end.
  2776. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2777. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2778. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2779. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2780. doing computation.
  2781. **** New lookup functions
  2782. There are now three lookup functions:
  2783. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2784. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2785. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2786. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2787. *** Startup keywords
  2788. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2789. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2790. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2791. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2792. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2793. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2794. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2795. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  2796. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2797. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  2798. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2799. *** Clocking
  2800. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2801. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2802. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2803. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2804. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2805. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2806. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2807. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2808. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2809. the clocktable.
  2810. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2811. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2812. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2813. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2814. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2815. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2816. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2817. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2818. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2819. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2820. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2821. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2822. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2823. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2824. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2825. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2826. *** Babel
  2827. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2828. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2829. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2830. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2831. same target than the block at point.
  2832. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2833. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2834. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2835. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2836. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2837. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2838. time.
  2839. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2840. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2841. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2842. manual for a usage example.
  2843. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2844. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2845. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2846. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2847. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2848. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2849. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2850. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2851. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2852. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2853. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2854. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2855. *** Faces
  2856. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2857. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2858. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2859. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2860. ** Miscellaneous
  2861. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2862. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2863. - [[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]]
  2864. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2865. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2866. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2867. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2868. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2869. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2870. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2871. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2872. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2873. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2874. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2875. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2876. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2877. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2878. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2879. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2880. ** Outside Org
  2881. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2882. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2883. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2884. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2885. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2886. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2887. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2888. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2889. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2890. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2891. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2892. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2893. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2894. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2895. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2896. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2897. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2898. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2899. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2900. * Version 7.9.3
  2901. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2902. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2903. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2904. agenda views.)
  2905. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2906. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2907. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2908. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2909. agenda type to this variable.
  2910. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2911. generation.
  2912. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2913. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2914. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2915. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2916. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2917. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2918. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2919. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2920. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2921. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2922. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2923. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2924. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2925. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2926. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2927. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2928. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2929. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2930. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2931. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2932. in most environments.
  2933. * Version 7.9.2
  2934. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2935. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2936. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2937. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2938. #+END_SRC
  2939. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2940. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2941. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2942. directory.)
  2943. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2944. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2945. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2946. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2947. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  2948. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |
  2949. | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] |

  2957. | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= |
  2958. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2959. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2960. ** New package and Babel language
  2961. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2962. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2963. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2964. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2965. ** Incompatible changes
  2966. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2967. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2968. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2969. instead.
  2970. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2971. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2972. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2973. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2974. *** Org Element
  2975. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2976. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2977. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2978. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2979. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2980. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2981. See the docstrings for more details.
  2982. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2983. on =org-element.el=.
  2984. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2985. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2986. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2987. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2988. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2989. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2990. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2991. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2992. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2993. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2994. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2995. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2996. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2997. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2998. elements.
  2999. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  3000. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  3001. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  3002. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  3003. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  3004. item. Etc.
  3005. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  3006. the whole list.
  3007. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  3008. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  3009. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  3010. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  3011. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  3012. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  3013. the same level.
  3014. *** Org Agenda
  3015. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  3016. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  3017. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  3018. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  3019. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  3020. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  3021. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  3022. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  3023. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  3024. generating new ones.
  3025. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  3026. agenda buffer.
  3027. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  3028. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3029. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  3030. to this value
  3031. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3032. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  3033. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  3034. #+END_SRC
  3035. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  3036. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  3037. details on how to use this.
  3038. **** Changes in bulk actions
  3039. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  3040. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  3041. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  3042. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  3043. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  3044. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  3045. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  3046. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  3047. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  3048. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  3049. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  3050. =t=.
  3051. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  3052. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  3053. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  3054. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  3055. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  3056. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  3057. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  3058. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  3059. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  3060. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  3061. =f= or =w=).
  3062. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  3063. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  3064. of deadline.
  3065. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  3066. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  3067. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  3068. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  3069. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  3070. several times.
  3071. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  3072. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  3073. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  3074. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  3075. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  3076. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  3077. filters and category filters.
  3078. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  3079. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  3080. configuration.
  3081. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  3082. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  3083. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  3084. point.
  3085. *** Org Links
  3086. **** Inserting links
  3087. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  3088. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  3089. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  3090. want to insert.
  3091. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  3092. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  3093. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  3094. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  3095. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  3096. highlighted.
  3097. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  3098. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  3099. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  3100. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  3101. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  3102. **** New link type =help=
  3103. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  3104. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  3105. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  3106. you go back to the same buffer.
  3107. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  3108. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  3109. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  3110. =org-stored-links=.
  3111. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  3112. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  3113. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  3114. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  3115. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  3116. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  3117. *** Org Editing
  3118. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  3119. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  3120. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  3121. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  3122. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  3123. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  3124. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  3125. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  3126. all headlines in the region.
  3127. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  3128. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  3129. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  3130. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  3131. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  3132. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  3133. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  3134. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  3135. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  3136. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  3137. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  3138. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  3139. undo RET=.
  3140. *** Org Clock
  3141. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  3142. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  3143. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  3144. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  3145. clocked entry, if any.
  3146. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  3147. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  3148. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  3149. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  3150. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  3151. out.
  3152. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  3153. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  3154. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  3155. arguments).
  3156. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  3157. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  3158. in.
  3159. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  3160. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  3161. cells in clockreport.
  3162. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  3163. time cells in clockreport.
  3164. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  3165. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  3166. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3167. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  3168. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3169. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  3170. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  3171. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  3172. space in the frame title.
  3173. *** Org Appearance
  3174. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  3175. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  3176. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  3177. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  3178. don't want to see temporarily.
  3179. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  3180. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  3181. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  3182. There are these new entities:
  3183. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  3184. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  3185. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  3186. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  3187. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  3188. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  3189. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  3190. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  3191. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  3192. The face is back to a normal height.
  3193. *** Org Columns
  3194. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  3195. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  3196. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  3197. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  3198. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  3199. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  3200. block will use its value as the column format.
  3201. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  3202. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  3203. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  3204. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  3205. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  3206. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  3207. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  3208. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  3209. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  3210. You can now use
  3211. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  3212. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  3213. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  3214. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  3215. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  3216. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  3217. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  3218. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  3219. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  3220. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  3221. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  3222. *** Org Capture
  3223. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  3224. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  3225. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  3226. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  3227. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  3228. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  3229. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3230. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  3231. set to this value
  3232. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3233. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  3234. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  3235. #+END_SRC
  3236. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  3237. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  3238. more details on how to use this.
  3239. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  3240. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  3241. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  3242. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  3243. =nil=.
  3244. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  3245. See the manual for more explanations.
  3246. **** More control over empty lines
  3247. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  3248. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  3249. explanations.
  3250. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  3251. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  3252. *** Org Export
  3253. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  3254. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  3255. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  3256. available) to print beautiful tables.
  3257. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  3258. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  3259. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  3260. the table.
  3261. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  3262. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  3263. in the #+DATE option.
  3264. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  3265. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  3266. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  3267. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  3268. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  3269. More languages are always welcome.
  3270. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  3271. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  3272. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  3273. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  3274. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  3275. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  3276. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  3277. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  3278. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  3279. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  3280. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  3281. *** Org Babel
  3282. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  3283. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  3284. supported.
  3285. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  3286. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  3287. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  3288. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  3289. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  3290. It used to exports the results of the code.
  3291. *** Miscellaneous
  3292. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  3293. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  3294. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  3295. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  3296. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  3297. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  3298. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  3299. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  3300. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  3301. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  3302. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  3303. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  3304. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  3305. alarm.
  3306. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  3307. This will increment the effort value.
  3308. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  3309. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  3310. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  3311. attach symbolic links.
  3312. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  3313. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  3314. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  3315. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  3316. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  3317. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  3318. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  3319. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  3320. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  3321. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  3322. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  3323. all top level list items.
  3324. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  3325. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  3326. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  3327. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  3328. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  3329. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  3330. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  3331. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  3332. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  3333. first headline in the region.
  3334. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  3335. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  3336. agenda.
  3337. ** Important bug fixes
  3338. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  3339. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  3340. perform completion with meaningful values.
  3341. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  3342. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  3343. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  3344. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  3345. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  3346. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  3347. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  3348. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  3349. license.
  3350. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  3351. the code and the license to your needs.
  3352. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  3353. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  3354. * Version 7.8.11
  3355. ** Incompatible changes
  3356. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3357. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3358. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3359. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3360. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3361. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3362. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3363. last-minute save.
  3364. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3365. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3366. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3367. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3368. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3369. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3370. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3371. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3372. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3373. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3374. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3375. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3376. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3377. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3378. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3379. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3380. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3381. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3382. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3383. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3384. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3385. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3386. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3387. #+end_src
  3388. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3389. setup./
  3390. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3391. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3392. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3393. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3394. The two new variables are:
  3395. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3396. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3397. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3398. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3399. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3400. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3401. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3402. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3403. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3404. classes.
  3405. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3406. document are:
  3407. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3408. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3409. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3410. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3411. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3412. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3413. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3414. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3415. #+begin_example
  3416. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3417. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3418. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3419. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3420. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3421. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3422. #+end_example
  3423. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3424. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3425. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3426. applies to the following packages:
  3427. - inputenc
  3428. - fontenc
  3429. - fixltx2e
  3430. - graphicx
  3431. - longtable
  3432. - float
  3433. - wrapfig
  3434. - soul
  3435. - t1enc
  3436. - textcomp
  3437. - marvosym
  3438. - wasysym
  3439. - latexsym
  3440. - amssymb
  3441. - hyperref
  3442. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3443. you are using, you can remove it from
  3444. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3445. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3446. properly.
  3447. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3448. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3449. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3450. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3451. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3452. the header.
  3453. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3454. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3455. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3456. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3457. code using it.
  3458. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3459. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3460. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3461. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3462. ** Important new features
  3463. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3464. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3465. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3466. for more information on how to customize it.
  3467. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3468. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3469. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3470. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3471. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3472. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3473. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3474. [[https://orgmode.org/list/C46F10DC-DE51-43D4-AFFE-F71E440D1E1F@gmail.com][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3475. To switch over to the new system:
  3476. 1. Run
  3477. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3478. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3479. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3480. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3481. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3482. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3483. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3484. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3485. customization.
  3486. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3487. with org-remember:
  3488. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3489. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3490. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3491. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3492. with using both system in parallel.
  3493. ** New libraries
  3494. *** New Org libraries
  3495. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3496. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3497. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3498. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3499. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3500. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3501. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3502. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3503. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3504. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3505. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3506. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3507. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3508. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3509. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3510. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3511. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3512. anything.
  3513. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3514. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3515. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3516. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3517. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3518. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3519. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3520. /org-ctags.el/.
  3521. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3522. call function to do something special with text links.
  3523. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3524. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3525. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3526. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3527. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3528. Org-mode manual:
  3529. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3530. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3531. *** New Babel libraries
  3532. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3533. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3534. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3535. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3536. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3537. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3538. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3539. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3540. *** Hyperlinks
  3541. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3542. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3543. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3544. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3545. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3546. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3547. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3548. The key new functions are
  3549. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3550. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3551. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3552. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3553. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3554. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3555. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3556. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3557. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3558. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3559. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3560. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3561. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3562. **** Modified link escaping
  3563. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[https://orgmode.org/list/87k4gysacq.wl%dmaus@ictsoc.de][his message]]:
  3564. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3565. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3566. : in link target or description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3567. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3568. : link).
  3569. :
  3570. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3571. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3572. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3573. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3574. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3575. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3576. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3577. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3578. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3579. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3580. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3581. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3582. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3583. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3584. string to be executed.
  3585. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3586. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3587. to org-file-apps:
  3588. #+begin_example
  3589. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3590. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3591. #+end_example
  3592. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3593. *** Dates and time
  3594. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3595. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3596. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3597. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3598. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3599. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3600. will work on the current entry.
  3601. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3602. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3603. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3604. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3605. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3606. #+begin_example
  3607. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3608. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3609. #+end_example
  3610. *** Agenda
  3611. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3612. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3613. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3614. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3615. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3616. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3617. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3618. entries using a function.
  3619. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3620. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3621. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3622. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3623. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3624. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3625. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3626. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3627. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3628. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3629. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3630. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3631. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3632. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3633. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3634. *** Exporting
  3635. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3636. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3637. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3638. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3639. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3640. %-sequences.
  3641. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3642. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3643. formatting string will insert a string.
  3644. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3645. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3646. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3647. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3648. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3649. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3650. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3651. C-e u=, respectively.
  3652. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3653. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3654. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3655. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3656. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3657. your preference.
  3658. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3659. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3660. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3661. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3662. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3663. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3664. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3665. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3666. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3667. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3668. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3669. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3670. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3671. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3672. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3673. individual could.
  3674. *** Refiling
  3675. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3676. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3677. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3678. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3679. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3680. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3681. **** New logging support for refiling
  3682. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3683. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3684. =org-log-refile=.
  3685. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3686. *** Completion
  3687. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3688. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3689. *** Tables
  3690. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3691. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3692. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3693. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3694. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3695. the displayed in the buffer.
  3696. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3697. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3698. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3699. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3700. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3701. |--------+--------+---------|
  3702. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3703. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3704. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3705. optional.
  3706. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3707. feedback on this.
  3708. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3709. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3710. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3711. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3712. : things like
  3713. :
  3714. : @3=
  3715. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3716. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3717. :
  3718. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3719. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3720. : table.
  3721. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3722. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3723. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3724. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3725. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3726. *** Lists
  3727. **** Improved handling of lists
  3728. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3729. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3730. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3731. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3732. indented than it.
  3733. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3734. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3735. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3736. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3737. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3738. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3739. `org-list-export-context'.
  3740. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3741. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3742. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3743. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3744. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3745. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3746. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3747. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3748. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3749. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3750. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3751. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3752. *** Inline display of linked images
  3753. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3754. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3755. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3756. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3757. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3758. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3759. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3760. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3761. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3762. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3763. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3764. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3765. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3766. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3767. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3768. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3769. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3770. tangling
  3771. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3772. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3773. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3774. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3775. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3776. properties or in tables.
  3777. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3778. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3779. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3780. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3781. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3782. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3783. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3784. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3785. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3786. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3787. request by Scott Otterson.
  3788. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3789. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3790. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3791. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3792. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3793. superscripts, see the variable
  3794. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3795. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3796. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3797. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3798. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3799. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3800. following new faces:
  3801. =org-document-title=
  3802. =org-document-info=
  3803. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3804. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3805. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3806. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3807. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3808. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3809. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3810. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3811. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3812. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3813. property is affected by this setting.
  3814. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3815. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3816. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3817. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3818. **** Better level cycling function
  3819. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3820. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3821. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3822. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3823. **** Adaptive filling
  3824. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3825. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3826. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3827. comments to be filled correctly.
  3828. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3829. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3830. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3831. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3832. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3833. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3834. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3835. *** Clocking
  3836. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3837. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3838. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3839. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3840. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3841. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3842. **** Localized clock tables
  3843. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3844. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3845. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3846. available translated strings.
  3847. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3848. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3849. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3850. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3851. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3852. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3853. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3854. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3855. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3856. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3857. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3858. =nil=.
  3859. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3860. *** Misc
  3861. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3862. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3863. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3864. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3865. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3866. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3867. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3868. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3869. property) back.
  3870. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3871. change.
  3872. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3873. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3874. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3875. #+begin_example
  3876. org-table-get
  3877. org-table-put
  3878. org-table-current-line
  3879. org-table-goto-line
  3880. #+end_example
  3881. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3882. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3883. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3884. node.
  3885. This was requested by Tom.
  3886. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3887. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3888. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3889. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
