  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 defaults 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 than 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 numeroted.
  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. your Org file is associated with a cider session that knows how to run
  155. ClojureScript code. A bare =lein repl= session outside of a directory
  156. 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-numeroted~
  220. When this option is =t=, Org files will start using ~(org-num-mode 1)~
  221. and headings will be visually numeroted.
  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-dawer~ function
  231. Use ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ instead.
  232. *** Deprecated ~org-cycle-hide-drawers~ function
  233. Use the new function ~org-hide-drawer-all~ instead. Note that there
  234. is also a new ~org-cycle-hide-property-drawers~ function.
  235. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-maybe~ function
  236. Use ~org-hide-block-toggle~ instead.
  237. *** Deprecated ~org-hide-block-toggle-all~ function
  238. This function was not used in the code base, and has no clear use
  239. either. It has been marked for future removal. Please contact the
  240. mailing list if you use this function.
  241. *** Deprecated ~org-return-indent~ function
  242. In Elisp code, use ~(org-return t)~ instead. Interactively, =C-j= is
  243. now bound to ~org-return-and-maybe-indent~, which indents the new line
  244. when ~electric-indent-mode~ is disabled.
  245. *** Removed ~org-maybe-keyword-time-regexp~
  246. The variable was not used in the code base.
  247. *** Removed ~org-export-special-keywords~
  248. The variable was not used in the code base.
  249. *** Renamed ~org-at-property-block-p~
  250. The new name is ~org-at-property-drawer-p~, which is less confusing.
  251. *** Renamed ~org-columns-set-tags-or-toggle~
  252. See [[*~org-columns-toggle-or-columns-quit~]].
  253. *** Renamed priority options
  254. From ~org-lowest-priority~ to ~org-priority-lowest~.
  255. From ~org-default-priority~ to ~org-priority-default~.
  256. From ~org-highest-priority~ to ~org-priority-highest~.
  257. From ~org-enable-priority-commands~ to ~org-priority-enable-commands~.
  258. From ~org-show-priority~ to ~org-priority-show~.
  259. ** Miscellaneous
  260. *** ~org-table-to-lisp~ no longer checks if point is at a table
  261. The caller is now responsible for the check. It can use, e.g.,
  262. ~org-at-table-p~.
  263. The function is also much more efficient than it used to, even on very
  264. large tables.
  265. *** New function : ~org-collect-keywords~
  266. *** Drawers' folding use an API similar to block's
  267. Tooling for folding drawers interactively or programmatically is now
  268. on par with block folding. In particular, the new
  269. ~org-hide-drawer-toggle~ function is the central place for drawer
  270. folding.
  271. *** Duration can be read and written in compact form
  272. ~org-duration-to-minutes~ understands =1d3h5min= as a duration,
  273. whereas ~org-duration-from-minutes~ can output this compact form if
  274. the duration format contains the symbol ~compact~.
  275. *** Fontify whole TODO headlines
  276. This feature is the same as ~org-fontify-done-headline~, but for TODO
  277. headlines instead. This allows you to distinguish TODO headlines from
  278. normal headlines. The face can be customized via ~org-headline-todo~.
  279. *** C-n, C-p, SPC and DEL in agenda commands dispatch window
  280. You can now use =C-n=, =C-p=, =SPC= and =DEL= key to scroll up and
  281. down the agenda and attach dispatch window.
  282. *** =<C-c C-c>= in agenda calls ~org-agenda-set-tags~
  283. Both =<C-c C-q>= and =<C-c C-c>= set the tags of the headline in the
  284. Org buffer. Both keybindings are now available from the agenda too.
  285. *** New option in ~org-attach-store-link-p~
  286. ~org-attach-store-link-p~ has a new option to store a file link to the
  287. attachment.
  288. *** New default value for ~org-file-apps~
  289. The new value uses Emacs as the application for opening directory.
  290. *** Allowed empty HTML extension
  291. Using =(setq org-html-extension "")= or setting the HTML extension in
  292. any fashing will produce the expected output, with no trailing period
  293. to the resulting HTML file.
  294. *** New =org-refile.el= file
  295. Org refile variables and functions have been moved to a new file.
  296. *** Handle repeated tasks with =.+= type and hours step
  297. A task using a =.+= repeater and hours step is repeated starting from
  298. now. E.g.,
  299. #+begin_example
  300. ,,** TODO Wash my hands
  301. DEADLINE: <2019-04-05 08:00 Sun .+1h>
  302. Marking this DONE shifts the date to exactly one hour from now.
  303. #+end_example
  304. *** The end of a 7 years old bug
  305. This bug [[https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-08/msg00072.html][originally reported]] by Matt Lundin and investigated by Andrew
  306. Hyatt has been fixed. Thanks to both of them.
  307. *** Format of equation reference in HTML export can be specified
  308. By default, HTML (via MathJax) and LaTeX export equation references
  309. using different commands. LaTeX must use ~\ref{%s}~ because it is used
  310. for all labels; however, HTML (via MathJax) uses ~\eqref{%s}~ for
  311. equations producing inconsistent output. New option
  312. ~org-html-equation-reference-format~ sets the command used in HTML
  313. export.
  314. *** ob-haskell: add support for compilation with =:compile= header argument
  315. By default, Haskell blocks are interpreted. By adding =:compile yes=
  316. to a Haskell source block, it will be compiled, executed and the
  317. results will be displayed.
  318. *** Support for ~org-edit-special~ with LaTeX fragments.
  319. Calling ~org-edit-special~ on an inline LaTeX fragment calls a new
  320. function, ~org-edit-latex-fragment~. This functions in a comparable
  321. manner to editing inline source blocks, bringing up a minibuffer set
  322. to LaTeX mode. The math-mode deliminators are read only.
  323. * Version 9.3
  324. ** Incompatible changes
  325. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  326. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  327. bracket links.
  328. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  329. to the following rules:
  330. 1. All =[= and =]= characters in the URI must be escaped;
  331. 2. Every =\= character preceding either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  332. 3. Every =\= character at the end of the URI must be escaped.
  333. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  334. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  335. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  336. syntax:
  337. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  338. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  339. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  340. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  341. is non-nil."
  342. (interactive "P")
  343. (org-with-point-at 1
  344. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  345. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  346. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  347. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  348. (= (match-beginning 0)
  349. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  350. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  351. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  352. (uri-end (save-excursion
  353. (goto-char uri-start)
  354. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  355. (match-beginning 0)))
  356. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  357. (when (or no-query
  358. (y-or-n-p
  359. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  360. uri)))
  361. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  362. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  363. #+end_src
  364. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  365. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  366. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  367. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  368. group 3.
  369. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  370. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  371. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  372. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  373. behavior will not happen automatically.
  374. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  375. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  376. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  377. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  378. it is.
  379. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  380. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  381. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  382. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  383. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  384. You can get the old behavior back with the following:
  385. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  386. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  387. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  388. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  389. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  390. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  391. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  392. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  393. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  394. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  395. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  396. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  397. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  398. since now it's implicitly always true.
  399. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  400. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  401. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  402. auto-commit attachments to git:
  403. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  404. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  405. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  406. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  407. ** New features
  408. *** New option to wrap source code lines in HTML export
  409. When new option ~html-wrap-src-lines~ (with variable
  410. ~org-html-wrap-src-lines~) is non-nil, HTML export wraps source code
  411. lines in HTML ~code~ elements.
  412. *** New option to handle schedules and deadlines in iCalendar export
  413. Export ignore done tasks with a deadline when
  414. ~org-icalendar-use-deadline~ contains ~event-if-todo-not-done~.
  415. Likewise, scheduled done tasks are also ignored when
  416. ~org-icalendar-use-scheduled~ contains the same symbol.
  417. *** Add ~split-window-right~ option for src block edit window placement
  418. Given the increasing popularity of wide screen monitors, splitting
  419. horizontally may make more sense than splitting vertically. An
  420. option, ~split-window-right~, to request horizontal splitting has been
  421. added to ~org-src-window-setup~.
  422. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  423. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  424. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  425. and extra options have been added as well.
  426. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  427. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  428. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  429. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  430. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  431. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  432. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  433. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  434. account).
  435. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  436. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  437. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  438. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  439. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favor of the shorter
  440. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  441. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  442. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  443. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  444. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  445. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  446. was the behavior before this change.
  447. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  448. precedence and will be used.
  449. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  450. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  451. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  452. your own function and add it to the beginning of
  453. ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~list~ if you want to customize the ID
  454. based folder structure.
  455. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  456. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  457. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  458. removed.

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

  889. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  890. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  891. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  892. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  893. remove it.
  894. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  895. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  896. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  897. ** New commands and functions
  898. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  899. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  900. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  901. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  902. See docstring for details.
  903. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  904. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  905. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  906. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  907. See docstring for details.
  908. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  909. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  910. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  911. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  912. will go back to the widen state.
  913. *** ~org-browse-news~
  914. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read information
  915. about the last major release.
  916. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  917. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  918. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  919. on the context.
  920. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  921. ** Removed commands and functions
  922. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  923. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  924. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  925. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  926. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  927. It was not used throughout the code base.
  928. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  929. It was not used throughout code base.
  930. *** ~org-context-p~
  931. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  932. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  933. It is no longer used in the code base.
  934. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  935. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  936. ** Removed options
  937. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  938. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  939. ** Miscellaneous
  940. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  941. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  942. handled specially by default.
  943. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  944. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  945. handled specially by default.
  946. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  947. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  948. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  949. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  950. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  951. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  952. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  953. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  954. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  955. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  956. reciprocal.
  957. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  958. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  959. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  960. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  961. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  962. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  963. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  964. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  965. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  966. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  967. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  968. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  969. rules instead of by code-point.
  970. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  971. * Version 9.1
  972. ** Incompatible changes
  973. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  974. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  975. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  976. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  977. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  978. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  979. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  980. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  981. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  982. accordingly.
  983. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  984. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  985. is to turn, e.g.,
  986. : (file (sexp))
  987. into
  988. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  989. *** Deleted contributed packages
  990. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  991. from the contrib/ directory.
  992. You can now find them here :
  993. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  994. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  995. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  996. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  997. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  998. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  999. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  1000. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  1001. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  1002. changes to site-map generation.
  1003. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  1004. to the following
  1005. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  1006. (lambda (entry style project)
  1007. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  1008. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  1009. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  1010. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  1011. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  1012. (t entry)))
  1013. #+END_SRC
  1014. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  1015. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  1016. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  1017. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  1018. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  1019. list as their first argument.
  1020. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  1021. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  1022. See docstring for details.
  1023. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  1024. See docstring for changes.
  1025. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  1026. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  1027. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  1028. details.
  1029. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  1030. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  1031. keywords.
  1032. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  1033. It used to return nil.
  1034. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  1035. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  1036. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  1037. MELPA repository.
  1038. ** New features
  1039. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  1040. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  1041. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  1042. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  1043. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  1044. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  1045. specified as in "Europe/London".
  1046. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  1047. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  1048. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  1049. directory to old, ID based one.
  1050. *** New Org duration library
  1051. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  1052. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  1053. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  1054. docstrings.
  1055. *** Agenda
  1056. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  1057. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  1058. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  1059. See docstring for details.
  1060. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1061. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  1062. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  1063. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  1064. the default setting.
  1065. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  1066. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  1067. directories in published site-maps.
  1068. *** Babel
  1069. **** Scheme: support for tables
  1070. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  1071. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  1072. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  1073. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  1074. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1075. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  1076. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  1077. with the content to be added.
  1078. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  1079. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  1080. before this let form.
  1081. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  1082. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  1083. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  1084. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  1085. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  1086. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  1087. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  1088. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  1089. window/buffer.
  1090. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  1091. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  1092. option in the code block's header like this:
  1093. #+begin_example
  1094. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  1095. (dotimes [n 10]
  1096. (println n ".")
  1097. (Thread/sleep 500))
  1098. ,#+END_SRC
  1099. #+end_example
  1100. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  1101. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  1102. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  1103. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  1104. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  1105. =#+RESULTS= section.
  1106. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  1107. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  1108. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  1109. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  1110. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  1111. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  1112. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  1113. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  1114. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  1115. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  1116. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  1117. results in a beamer presentation.
  1118. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  1119. [[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
  1120. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  1121. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  1122. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  1123. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  1124. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  1125. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1126. #+begin_example
  1127. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  1128. Select * From Users
  1129. Where clue > 0
  1130. ,#+END_SRC
  1131. #+end_example
  1132. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  1133. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  1134. against HP Vertica.
  1135. 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]]
  1136. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  1137. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1138. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  1139. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  1140. ,#+END_SRC
  1141. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1142. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  1143. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  1144. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  1145. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  1146. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  1147. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  1148. using ~:namespaces~:
  1149. #+begin_example
  1150. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  1151. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  1152. ,#+END_SRC
  1153. #+end_example
  1154. **** Support for Vala language
  1155. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  1156. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  1157. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  1158. 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~]]
  1159. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  1160. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  1161. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  1162. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  1163. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  1164. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  1165. *** Export
  1166. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  1167. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  1168. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  1169. contents, are now supported.
  1170. **** Add Slovenian translations
  1171. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  1172. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  1173. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  1174. details.
  1175. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  1176. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  1177. manual for details.
  1178. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  1179. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  1180. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  1181. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  1182. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  1183. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  1184. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  1185. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  1186. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  1187. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  1188. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  1189. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  1190. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  1191. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  1192. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  1193. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  1194. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  1195. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  1196. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  1197. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  1198. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  1199. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  1200. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  1201. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  1202. to the document.
  1203. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  1204. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  1205. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  1206. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  1207. ~uniquify.el~.
  1208. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  1209. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  1210. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  1211. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  1212. to ~org-file-contents~.
  1213. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  1214. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  1215. that file cache.
  1216. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  1217. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  1218. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  1219. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  1220. ** Removed functions
  1221. *** Org Timeline
  1222. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  1223. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  1224. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1225. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1226. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  1227. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1228. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  1229. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  1230. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  1231. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  1232. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1233. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1234. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  1235. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  1236. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  1237. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  1238. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1239. ** Removed options
  1240. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  1241. For an equivalent to a =nil= value, set
  1242. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  1243. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to =t=.
  1244. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  1245. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  1246. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  1247. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  1248. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  1249. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  1250. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  1251. equivalent to the removed format string.
  1252. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  1253. Setting it to a =nil= value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  1254. keys).
  1255. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  1256. The variable is now a boolean.
  1257. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  1258. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  1259. ** New functions
  1260. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  1261. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  1262. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  1263. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  1264. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  1265. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  1266. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  1267. ** Miscellaneous
  1268. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  1269. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  1270. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  1271. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  1272. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  1273. *** Allow multiple columns view
  1274. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  1275. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  1276. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  1277. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  1278. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  1279. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  1280. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  1281. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  1282. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  1283. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  1284. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  1285. used to describe the time span.
  1286. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  1287. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  1288. far away in the future.
  1289. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  1290. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  1291. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  1292. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  1293. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  1294. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  1295. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  1296. See docstring for details.
  1297. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  1298. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  1299. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  1300. is now obsolete.
  1301. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  1302. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  1303. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  1304. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  1305. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  1306. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  1307. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  1308. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  1309. suitable as a default value.
  1310. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  1311. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  1312. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  1313. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are covered by
  1314. rewrite rules.
  1315. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  1316. * Version 9.0
  1317. ** Incompatible changes
  1318. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  1319. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  1320. above is suggested.
  1321. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  1322. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  1323. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  1324. our mailing list.
  1325. *** New syntax for export blocks
  1326. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  1327. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  1328. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1329. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  1330. ...
  1331. ,#+END_EXPORT
  1332. #+END_SRC
  1333. instead of
  1334. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1335. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  1336. ...
  1337. ,#+END_backend
  1338. #+END_SRC
  1339. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  1340. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1341. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  1342. #+END_SRC
  1343. becomes
  1344. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1345. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  1346. #+END_SRC
  1347. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  1348. using previous syntax:
  1349. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1350. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  1351. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1352. (interactive)
  1353. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1354. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1355. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1356. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1357. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1358. t)))
  1359. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1360. (goto-char (point-min))
  1361. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1362. (save-excursion
  1363. (while (re-search-forward block-re nil t)
  1364. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1365. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1366. (save-excursion
  1367. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1368. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1369. (forward-char)
  1370. (insert "EXPORT")
  1371. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1372. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1373. (let ((include-re
  1374. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1375. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1376. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1377. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1378. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1379. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1380. #+END_SRC
  1381. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1382. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1383. removed.
  1384. *** Footnotes changes
  1385. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1386. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1387. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1388. constructs are now unsupported.
  1389. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1390. =[fn:N]=.
  1391. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1392. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1393. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1394. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1395. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1396. exists.
  1397. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1398. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1399. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1400. is straightforward. For example
  1401. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1402. becomes
  1403. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1404. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1405. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1406. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1407. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1408. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1409. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1410. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1411. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1412. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1413. such, the following
  1414. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1415. ,* Headline
  1416. :PROPERTIES:
  1417. :exports: code
  1418. :var: a=1 b=2
  1419. :var+: c=3
  1420. :END:
  1421. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1422. should be written instead
  1423. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1424. ,* Headline
  1425. :PROPERTIES:
  1426. :header-args: :exports code
  1427. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1428. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1429. :END:
  1430. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1431. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1432. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1433. ** New features
  1434. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1435. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1436. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1437. #+begin_example
  1438. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1439. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1440. #+end_example
  1441. Old-style links such as
  1442. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1443. continue to be supported.
  1444. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1445. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1446. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1447. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1448. lists.
  1449. *** New Org linter library
  1450. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1451. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1452. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1453. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1454. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1455. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1456. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1457. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1458. *** Export
  1459. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1460. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1461. details.
  1462. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1463. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1464. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1465. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1466. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1467. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1468. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1469. for more details.
  1470. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1471. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1472. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1473. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1474. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1475. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1476. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1477. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1478. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1479. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1480. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1481. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1482. used.
  1483. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1484. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1485. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1486. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1487. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1488. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1489. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1490. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1491. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1492. (message "This is line 21")
  1493. ,#+END_SRC
  1494. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1495. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1496. (message "This is line 32")
  1497. ,#+END_SRC
  1498. #+END_SRC
  1499. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1500. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1501. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1502. export.
  1503. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1504. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1505. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1506. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1507. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1508. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1509. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1510. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1511. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1512. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1513. *** Babel
  1514. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1515. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1516. **** Support for Lua language
  1517. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1518. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1519. **** Support for Stan language
  1520. New ob-stan.el library.
  1521. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1522. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1523. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1524. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1525. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1526. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1527. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1528. that does not end in ".stan".
  1529. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1530. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1531. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1532. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1533. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1534. mandatory):
  1535. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1536. :engine oracle
  1537. :dbhost <host.com>
  1538. :dbport <1521>
  1539. :dbuser <username>
  1540. :database <database>
  1541. :dbpassword <secret>
  1542. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1543. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1544. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1545. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1546. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1547. like this:
  1548. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1549. :engine mssql
  1550. :dbhost <host.com>
  1551. :dbuser <username>
  1552. :dbpassword <secret>
  1553. :database <database>
  1554. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1555. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1556. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1557. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1558. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1559. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1560. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1561. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1562. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1563. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1564. include:
  1565. All Diagrams:
  1566. - png ::
  1567. - svg ::
  1568. - eps ::
  1569. - pdf ::
  1570. - vdx ::
  1571. - txt :: ASCII art
  1572. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1573. Class Diagrams:
  1574. - xmi ::
  1575. - html ::
  1576. State Diagrams:
  1577. - scxml ::
  1578. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1579. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1580. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1581. @startuml
  1582. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1583. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1584. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1585. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1586. @enduml
  1587. #+end_src
  1588. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1589. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1590. details and setup information.
  1591. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1592. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1593. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1594. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1595. for details.
  1596. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1597. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1598. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1599. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1600. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1601. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1602. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1603. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1604. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1605. by ISO week and not by month.
  1606. For example:
  1607. : * 2015
  1608. : ** 2015-W35
  1609. : ** 2015-W36
  1610. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1611. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1612. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1613. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1614. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1615. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1616. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1617. *** Columns view
  1618. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1619. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1620. buffer unconditionally.
  1621. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1622. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1623. **** Allow custom summaries
  1624. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1625. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1626. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1627. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1628. types.
  1629. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1630. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1631. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1632. a git repository.
  1633. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1634. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1635. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1636. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1637. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1638. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1639. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1640. first footnote.
  1641. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1642. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1643. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1644. the manual for details.
  1645. *** Links are now customizable
  1646. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1647. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1648. ** New functions
  1649. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1650. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1651. *** ~org-show-children~
  1652. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1653. ** Removed functions
  1654. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1655. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1656. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1657. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1658. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1659. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1660. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1661. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1662. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1663. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1664. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1665. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1666. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1667. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1668. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1669. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1670. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1671. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1672. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1673. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1674. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1675. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1676. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1677. The affected functions are:
  1678. - ~org-count~
  1679. - ~org-remove-if~
  1680. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1681. - ~org-reduce~
  1682. - ~org-every~
  1683. - ~org-some~
  1684. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1685. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1686. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1687. ** Removed options
  1688. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1689. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1690. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1691. let those libraries operate.
  1692. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1693. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1694. plain list.
  1695. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1696. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1697. ** Miscellaneous
  1698. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1699. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1700. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1701. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1702. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1703. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1704. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1705. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1706. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1707. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1708. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1709. Org files.
  1710. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1711. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1712. indentation.
  1713. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1714. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1715. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1716. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1717. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1718. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1719. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1720. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1721. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1722. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1723. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1724. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1725. to the article's original group.
  1726. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1727. The calling convention has changed.
  1728. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1729. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1730. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1731. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1732. called with 6 parameters.
  1733. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1734. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1735. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1736. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1737. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1738. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1739. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1740. the end of the string.
  1741. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1742. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1743. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1744. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1745. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1746. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1747. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1748. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1749. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1750. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1751. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1752. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1753. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1754. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1755. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1756. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1757. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1758. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1759. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1760. future.)
  1761. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1762. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1763. modified anyway.
  1764. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1765. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1766. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1767. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1768. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1769. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1770. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1771. indication letter was solely J.
  1772. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1773. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1774. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1775. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1776. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1777. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1778. a ~defvar~.
  1779. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1780. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1781. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1782. * Version 8.3
  1783. ** Incompatible changes
  1784. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1785. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1786. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1787. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1788. logged before the property drawer.
  1789. The following function will repair them:
  1790. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1791. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1792. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1793. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1794. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1795. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1796. (goto-char (point-min))
  1797. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1798. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1799. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1800. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1801. (org-map-entries
  1802. (lambda ()
  1803. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1804. (save-excursion
  1805. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1806. (forward-line)
  1807. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1808. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1809. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1810. (save-excursion
  1811. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1812. (eq (org-element-type
  1813. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1814. 'drawer))))
  1815. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1816. (match-beginning 0)
  1817. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1818. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1819. #+END_SRC
  1820. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1821. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1822. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1823. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1824. into account when exporting.
  1825. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1826. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1827. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1828. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1829. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1830. 5.14 (2008).
  1831. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1832. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1833. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1834. ,* Headline
  1835. :PROPERTIES:
  1836. :CATEGORY: some category
  1837. :END:
  1838. #+END_SRC
  1839. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1840. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1841. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1842. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1843. see.
  1844. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1845. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1846. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1847. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1848. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1849. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1850. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1851. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1852. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1853. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1854. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1855. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1856. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1857. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1858. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1859. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1860. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1861. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1862. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1863. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1864. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1865. *** Functions signature changes
  1866. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1867. docstring for more information.
  1868. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1869. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1870. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1871. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1872. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1873. - ~org-link-search~
  1874. ** New features
  1875. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1876. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1877. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1878. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1879. :lexical yes
  1880. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1881. :lexical no
  1882. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1883. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1884. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1885. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1886. without changing the headline.
  1887. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1888. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to Org mode.
  1889. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1890. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1891. The following in-buffer definition:
  1892. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1893. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1894. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1895. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1896. #+END_SRC
  1897. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1898. - Group
  1899. - SubOne
  1900. - SubOne1
  1901. - SubOne2
  1902. - SubTwo
  1903. - SubTwo1
  1904. - SubTwo2
  1905. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1906. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1907. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1908. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1909. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1910. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1911. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1912. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1913. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1914. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1915. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1916. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1917. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1918. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1919. #+END_SRC
  1920. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1921. grouptags; { }.
  1922. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1923. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1924. "sub-tags".
  1925. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1926. Example use:
  1927. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1928. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1929. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1930. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1931. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1932. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1933. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1934. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1935. levels anymore.
  1936. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1937. is also used as a filter.
  1938. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1939. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1940. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1941. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1942. exclude.
  1943. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1944. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1945. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1946. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1947. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1948. New ob-processing.el library.
  1949. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1950. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1951. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1952. Check the documentation for more details.
  1953. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1954. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1955. The new behavior is the following:
  1956. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1957. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1958. buffer;
  1959. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1960. subtree;
  1961. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1962. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1963. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1964. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1965. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1966. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1967. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1968. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1969. more information.
  1970. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1971. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1972. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1973. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1974. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1975. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1976. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1977. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1978. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1979. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1980. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1981. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1982. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1983. default is =hline=.
  1984. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1985. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1986. a source block.
  1987. *** New option in ASCII export
  1988. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1989. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1990. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1991. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1992. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1993. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1994. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1995. increased. See manual for details.
  1996. *** Export inline source blocks
  1997. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1998. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1999. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  2000. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  2001. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  2002. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  2003. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  2004. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  2005. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  2006. more features. See docstring for details.
  2007. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  2008. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  2009. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  2010. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  2011. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  2012. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  2013. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  2014. : This sentence is false.
  2015. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  2016. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  2017. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  2018. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  2019. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  2020. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  2021. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  2022. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  2023. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  2024. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  2025. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  2026. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  2027. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  2028. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  2029. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  2030. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  2031. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  2032. each time.
  2033. *** ASCII plot
  2034. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  2035. for details.
  2036. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  2037. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  2038. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  2039. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  2040. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  2041. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  2042. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  2043. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  2044. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  2045. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  2046. See the docstring for more information.
  2047. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  2048. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  2049. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  2050. property is inherited by children.
  2051. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  2052. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  2053. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  2054. to sort a table.
  2055. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  2056. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  2057. for details.
  2058. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  2059. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  2060. countdown timers.
  2061. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  2062. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  2063. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  2064. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  2065. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  2066. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  2067. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  2068. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  2069. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  2070. manual for details.
  2071. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  2072. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  2073. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  2074. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  2075. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  2076. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  2077. leading spaces within table cells.
  2078. *** New MathJax configuration options
  2079. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  2080. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  2081. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  2082. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  2083. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  2084. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  2085. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  2086. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  2087. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  2088. keywords and properties.
  2089. *** Viewport support in html export
  2090. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  2091. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  2092. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  2093. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  2094. for details.
  2095. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  2096. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  2097. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  2098. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  2099. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  2100. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  2101. added to headline text.
  2102. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  2103. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  2104. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  2105. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  2106. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  2107. =#+TOC= keyword.
  2108. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  2109. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  2110. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  2111. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  2112. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  2113. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  2114. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  2115. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  2116. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  2117. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  2118. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  2119. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  2120. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  2121. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  2122. ** Removed functions
  2123. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  2124. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  2125. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  2126. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  2127. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  2128. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  2129. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  2130. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  2131. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  2132. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  2133. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  2134. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  2135. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  2136. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  2137. optional argument.
  2138. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  2139. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  2140. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  2141. ** Removed options
  2142. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  2143. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  2144. compatibility.
  2145. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  2146. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  2147. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  2148. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  2149. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  2150. document instead.
  2151. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  2152. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  2153. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  2154. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  2155. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  2156. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  2157. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell language is =shell=. To chose
  2158. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  2159. variable locally.
  2160. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  2161. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  2162. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  2163. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  2164. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  2165. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  2166. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  2167. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  2168. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  2169. removed.
  2170. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  2171. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  2172. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  2173. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  2174. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  2175. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  2176. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  2177. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  2178. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  2179. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  2180. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  2181. *** Removed comment-related filters
  2182. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  2183. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  2184. anymore.
  2185. ** Miscellaneous
  2186. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  2187. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  2188. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  2189. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  2190. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  2191. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  2192. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  2193. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  2194. labels colliding.
  2195. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  2196. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  2197. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  2198. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  2199. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  2200. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  2201. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  2202. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  2203. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  2204. particular test failure was introduced.
  2205. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  2206. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  2207. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  2208. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  2209. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  2210. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  2211. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  2212. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  2213. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  2214. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  2215. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  2216. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  2217. This helps spotting wrong links.
  2218. * Version 8.2
  2219. ** Incompatible changes
  2220. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  2221. This may require two changes in user config.
  2222. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  2223. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  2224. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  2225. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  2226. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  2227. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  2228. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  2229. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  2230. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  2231. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  2232. with this:
  2233. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  2234. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  2235. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  2236. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  2237. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  2238. So you need to replace
  2239. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  2240. by
  2241. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  2242. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  2243. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  2244. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  2245. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  2246. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  2247. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  2248. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  2249. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  2250. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  2251. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  2252. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  2253. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  2254. of a symbol.
  2255. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  2256. ** Important bugfixes
  2257. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  2258. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  2259. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  2260. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  2261. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  2262. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  2263. ** New features
  2264. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  2265. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  2266. of the list.
  2267. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  2268. - Support SVG images
  2269. - Support for .pgf files
  2270. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  2271. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  2272. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  2273. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  2274. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  2275. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  2276. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  2277. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  2278. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  2279. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  2280. in a paragraph-like way.
  2281. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2282. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  2283. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  2284. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  2285. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  2286. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  2287. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  2288. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  2289. which can then be passed to export functions like
  2290. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  2291. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  2292. registering a new back-end.
  2293. *** New agenda fortnight view
  2294. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  2295. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  2296. ** New options
  2297. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  2298. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  2299. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  2300. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  2301. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  2302. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  2303. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  2304. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  2305. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  2306. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  2307. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  2308. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  2309. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  2310. of =ox-rss.el=.
  2311. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  2312. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  2313. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  2314. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  2315. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  2316. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  2317. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  2318. If you set this to the following
  2319. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  2320. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  2321. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  2322. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  2323. =C-o= in tables.
  2324. ** New contributed packages
  2325. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  2326. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  2327. software.
  2328. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  2329. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  2330. ** Miscellaneous
  2331. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  2332. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  2333. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  2334. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  2335. the same with example blocks.
  2336. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  2337. release.
  2338. * Version 8.0.1
  2339. ** Installation
  2340. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  2341. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  2342. instructions:
  2343. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  2344. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  2345. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  2346. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  2347. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  2348. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  2349. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  2350. detailed explanations.
  2351. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2352. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2353. function has been called already.
  2354. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2355. installation.
  2356. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2357. ** Incompatible changes
  2358. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2359. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2360. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2361. you will have to update them.
  2362. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2363. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2364. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2365. **** New export engine
  2366. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2367. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2368. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2369. /all/ export back-ends.
  2370. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2371. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2372. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2373. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2374. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2375. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2376. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2377. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2378. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2379. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2380. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2381. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2382. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2383. should now be written
  2384. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2385. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2386. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2387. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2388. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2389. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2390. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2391. now fully removed.
  2392. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2393. remember templates into capture templates.
  2394. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2395. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2396. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2397. **** Note for third-party developers
  2398. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2399. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2400. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2401. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2402. code.
  2403. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2404. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2405. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2406. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2407. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2408. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2409. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2410. user-base.
  2411. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2412. - org-mac-message.el
  2413. - org-mew.el
  2414. - org-wl.el
  2415. - ox-freedmind.el
  2416. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2417. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2418. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2419. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2420. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  2421. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  2422. ** New packages in core

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

  2953. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2954. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2955. ** New package and Babel language
  2956. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2957. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2958. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2959. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2960. ** Incompatible changes
  2961. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2962. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2963. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2964. instead.
  2965. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2966. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2967. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2968. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2969. *** Org Element
  2970. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2971. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2972. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2973. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2974. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2975. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2976. See the docstrings for more details.
  2977. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2978. on =org-element.el=.
  2979. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2980. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2981. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2982. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2983. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2984. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2985. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2986. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2987. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2988. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2989. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2990. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2991. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2992. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2993. elements.
  2994. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2995. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2996. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2997. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2998. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2999. item. Etc.
  3000. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  3001. the whole list.
  3002. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  3003. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  3004. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  3005. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  3006. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  3007. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  3008. the same level.
  3009. *** Org Agenda
  3010. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  3011. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  3012. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  3013. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  3014. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  3015. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  3016. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  3017. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  3018. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  3019. generating new ones.
  3020. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  3021. agenda buffer.
  3022. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  3023. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3024. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  3025. to this value
  3026. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3027. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  3028. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  3029. #+END_SRC
  3030. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  3031. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  3032. details on how to use this.
  3033. **** Changes in bulk actions
  3034. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  3035. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  3036. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  3037. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  3038. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  3039. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  3040. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  3041. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  3042. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  3043. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  3044. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  3045. =t=.
  3046. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  3047. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  3048. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  3049. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  3050. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  3051. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  3052. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  3053. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  3054. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  3055. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  3056. =f= or =w=).
  3057. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  3058. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  3059. of deadline.
  3060. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  3061. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  3062. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  3063. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  3064. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  3065. several times.
  3066. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  3067. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  3068. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  3069. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  3070. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  3071. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  3072. filters and category filters.
  3073. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  3074. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  3075. configuration.
  3076. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  3077. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  3078. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  3079. point.
  3080. *** Org Links
  3081. **** Inserting links
  3082. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  3083. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  3084. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  3085. want to insert.
  3086. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  3087. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  3088. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  3089. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  3090. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  3091. highlighted.
  3092. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  3093. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  3094. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  3095. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  3096. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  3097. **** New link type =help=
  3098. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  3099. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  3100. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  3101. you go back to the same buffer.
  3102. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  3103. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  3104. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  3105. =org-stored-links=.
  3106. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  3107. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  3108. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  3109. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  3110. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  3111. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  3112. *** Org Editing
  3113. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  3114. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  3115. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  3116. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  3117. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  3118. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  3119. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  3120. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  3121. all headlines in the region.
  3122. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  3123. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  3124. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  3125. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  3126. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  3127. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  3128. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  3129. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  3130. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  3131. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  3132. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  3133. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  3134. undo RET=.
  3135. *** Org Clock
  3136. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  3137. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  3138. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  3139. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  3140. clocked entry, if any.
  3141. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  3142. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  3143. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  3144. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  3145. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  3146. out.
  3147. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  3148. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  3149. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  3150. arguments).
  3151. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  3152. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  3153. in.
  3154. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  3155. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  3156. cells in clockreport.
  3157. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  3158. time cells in clockreport.
  3159. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  3160. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  3161. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3162. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  3163. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  3164. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  3165. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  3166. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  3167. space in the frame title.
  3168. *** Org Appearance
  3169. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  3170. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  3171. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  3172. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  3173. don't want to see temporarily.
  3174. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  3175. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  3176. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  3177. There are these new entities:
  3178. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  3179. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  3180. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  3181. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  3182. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  3183. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  3184. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  3185. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  3186. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  3187. The face is back to a normal height.
  3188. *** Org Columns
  3189. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  3190. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  3191. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  3192. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  3193. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  3194. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  3195. block will use its value as the column format.
  3196. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  3197. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  3198. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  3199. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  3200. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  3201. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  3202. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  3203. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  3204. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  3205. You can now use
  3206. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  3207. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  3208. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  3209. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  3210. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  3211. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  3212. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  3213. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  3214. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  3215. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  3216. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  3217. *** Org Capture
  3218. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  3219. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  3220. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  3221. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  3222. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  3223. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  3224. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  3225. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  3226. set to this value
  3227. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  3228. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  3229. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  3230. #+END_SRC
  3231. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  3232. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  3233. more details on how to use this.
  3234. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  3235. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  3236. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  3237. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  3238. =nil=.
  3239. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  3240. See the manual for more explanations.
  3241. **** More control over empty lines
  3242. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  3243. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  3244. explanations.
  3245. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  3246. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  3247. *** Org Export
  3248. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  3249. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  3250. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  3251. available) to print beautiful tables.
  3252. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  3253. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  3254. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  3255. the table.
  3256. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  3257. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  3258. in the #+DATE option.
  3259. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  3260. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  3261. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  3262. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  3263. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  3264. More languages are always welcome.
  3265. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  3266. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  3267. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  3268. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  3269. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  3270. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  3271. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  3272. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  3273. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  3274. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  3275. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  3276. *** Org Babel
  3277. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  3278. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  3279. supported.
  3280. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  3281. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  3282. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  3283. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  3284. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  3285. It used to exports the results of the code.
  3286. *** Miscellaneous
  3287. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  3288. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  3289. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  3290. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  3291. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  3292. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  3293. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  3294. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  3295. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  3296. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  3297. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  3298. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  3299. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  3300. alarm.
  3301. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  3302. This will increment the effort value.
  3303. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  3304. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  3305. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  3306. attach symbolic links.
  3307. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  3308. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  3309. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  3310. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  3311. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  3312. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  3313. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  3314. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  3315. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  3316. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  3317. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  3318. all top level list items.
  3319. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  3320. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  3321. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  3322. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  3323. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  3324. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  3325. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  3326. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  3327. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  3328. first headline in the region.
  3329. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  3330. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  3331. agenda.
  3332. ** Important bug fixes
  3333. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  3334. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  3335. perform completion with meaningful values.
  3336. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  3337. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  3338. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  3339. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  3340. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  3341. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  3342. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  3343. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  3344. license.
  3345. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  3346. the code and the license to your needs.
  3347. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  3348. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  3349. * Version 7.8.11
  3350. ** Incompatible changes
  3351. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3352. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3353. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3354. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3355. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3356. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3357. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3358. last-minute save.
  3359. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3360. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3361. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3362. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3363. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3364. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3365. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3366. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3367. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3368. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3369. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3370. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3371. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3372. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3373. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3374. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3375. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3376. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3377. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3378. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3379. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3380. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3381. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3382. #+end_src
  3383. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3384. setup./
  3385. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3386. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3387. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3388. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3389. The two new variables are:
  3390. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3391. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3392. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3393. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3394. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3395. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3396. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3397. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3398. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3399. classes.
  3400. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3401. document are:
  3402. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3403. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3404. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3405. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3406. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3407. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3408. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3409. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3410. #+begin_example
  3411. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3412. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3413. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3414. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3415. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3416. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3417. #+end_example
  3418. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3419. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3420. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3421. applies to the following packages:
  3422. - inputenc
  3423. - fontenc
  3424. - fixltx2e
  3425. - graphicx
  3426. - longtable
  3427. - float
  3428. - wrapfig
  3429. - soul
  3430. - t1enc
  3431. - textcomp
  3432. - marvosym
  3433. - wasysym
  3434. - latexsym
  3435. - amssymb
  3436. - hyperref
  3437. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3438. you are using, you can remove it from
  3439. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3440. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3441. properly.
  3442. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3443. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3444. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3445. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3446. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3447. the header.
  3448. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3449. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3450. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3451. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3452. code using it.
  3453. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3454. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3455. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3456. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3457. ** Important new features
  3458. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3459. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3460. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3461. for more information on how to customize it.
  3462. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3463. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3464. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3465. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3466. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3467. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3468. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3469. [[https://orgmode.org/list/C46F10DC-DE51-43D4-AFFE-F71E440D1E1F@gmail.com][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3470. To switch over to the new system:
  3471. 1. Run
  3472. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3473. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3474. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3475. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3476. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3477. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3478. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3479. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3480. customization.
  3481. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3482. with org-remember:
  3483. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3484. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3485. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3486. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3487. with using both system in parallel.
  3488. ** New libraries
  3489. *** New Org libraries
  3490. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3491. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3492. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3493. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3494. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3495. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3496. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3497. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3498. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3499. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3500. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3501. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3502. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3503. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3504. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3505. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3506. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3507. anything.
  3508. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3509. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3510. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3511. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3512. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3513. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3514. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3515. /org-ctags.el/.
  3516. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3517. call function to do something special with text links.
  3518. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3519. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3520. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3521. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3522. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3523. Org-mode manual:
  3524. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3525. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3526. *** New Babel libraries
  3527. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3528. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3529. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3530. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3531. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3532. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3533. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3534. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3535. *** Hyperlinks
  3536. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3537. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3538. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3539. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3540. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3541. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3542. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3543. The key new functions are
  3544. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3545. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3546. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3547. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3548. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3549. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3550. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3551. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3552. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3553. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3554. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3555. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3556. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3557. **** Modified link escaping
  3558. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[https://orgmode.org/list/87k4gysacq.wl%dmaus@ictsoc.de][his message]]:
  3559. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3560. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3561. : in link target or description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3562. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3563. : link).
  3564. :
  3565. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3566. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3567. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3568. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3569. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3570. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3571. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3572. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3573. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3574. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3575. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3576. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3577. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3578. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3579. string to be executed.
  3580. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3581. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3582. to org-file-apps:
  3583. #+begin_example
  3584. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3585. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3586. #+end_example
  3587. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3588. *** Dates and time
  3589. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3590. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3591. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3592. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3593. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3594. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3595. will work on the current entry.
  3596. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3597. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3598. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3599. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3600. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3601. #+begin_example
  3602. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3603. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3604. #+end_example
  3605. *** Agenda
  3606. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3607. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3608. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3609. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3610. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3611. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3612. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3613. entries using a function.
  3614. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3615. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3616. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3617. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3618. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3619. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3620. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3621. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3622. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3623. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3624. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3625. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3626. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3627. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3628. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3629. *** Exporting
  3630. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3631. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3632. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3633. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3634. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3635. %-sequences.
  3636. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3637. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3638. formatting string will insert a string.
  3639. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3640. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3641. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3642. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3643. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3644. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3645. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3646. C-e u=, respectively.
  3647. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3648. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3649. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3650. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3651. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3652. your preference.
  3653. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3654. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3655. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3656. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3657. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3658. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3659. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3660. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3661. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3662. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3663. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3664. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3665. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3666. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3667. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3668. individual could.
  3669. *** Refiling
  3670. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3671. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3672. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3673. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3674. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3675. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3676. **** New logging support for refiling
  3677. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3678. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3679. =org-log-refile=.
  3680. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3681. *** Completion
  3682. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3683. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3684. *** Tables
  3685. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3686. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3687. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3688. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3689. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3690. the displayed in the buffer.
  3691. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3692. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3693. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3694. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3695. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3696. |--------+--------+---------|
  3697. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3698. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3699. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3700. optional.
  3701. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3702. feedback on this.
  3703. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3704. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3705. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3706. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3707. : things like
  3708. :
  3709. : @3=
  3710. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3711. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3712. :
  3713. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3714. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3715. : table.
  3716. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3717. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3718. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3719. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3720. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3721. *** Lists
  3722. **** Improved handling of lists
  3723. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3724. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3725. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3726. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3727. indented than it.
  3728. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3729. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3730. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3731. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3732. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3733. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3734. `org-list-export-context'.
  3735. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3736. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3737. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3738. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3739. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3740. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3741. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3742. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3743. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3744. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3745. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3746. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3747. *** Inline display of linked images
  3748. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3749. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3750. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3751. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3752. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3753. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3754. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3755. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3756. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3757. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3758. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3759. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3760. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3761. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3762. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3763. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3764. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3765. tangling
  3766. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3767. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3768. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3769. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3770. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3771. properties or in tables.
  3772. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3773. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3774. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3775. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3776. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3777. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3778. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3779. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3780. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3781. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3782. request by Scott Otterson.
  3783. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3784. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3785. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3786. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3787. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3788. superscripts, see the variable
  3789. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3790. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3791. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3792. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3793. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3794. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3795. following new faces:
  3796. =org-document-title=
  3797. =org-document-info=
  3798. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3799. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3800. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3801. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3802. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3803. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3804. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3805. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3806. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3807. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3808. property is affected by this setting.
  3809. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3810. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3811. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3812. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3813. **** Better level cycling function
  3814. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3815. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3816. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3817. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3818. **** Adaptive filling
  3819. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3820. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3821. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3822. comments to be filled correctly.
  3823. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3824. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3825. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3826. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3827. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3828. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3829. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3830. *** Clocking
  3831. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3832. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3833. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3834. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3835. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3836. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3837. **** Localized clock tables
  3838. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3839. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3840. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3841. available translated strings.
  3842. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3843. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3844. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3845. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3846. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3847. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3848. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3849. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3850. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3851. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3852. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3853. =nil=.
  3854. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3855. *** Misc
  3856. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3857. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3858. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3859. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3860. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3861. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3862. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3863. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3864. property) back.
  3865. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3866. change.
  3867. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3868. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3869. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3870. #+begin_example
  3871. org-table-get
  3872. org-table-put
  3873. org-table-current-line
  3874. org-table-goto-line
  3875. #+end_example
  3876. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3877. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3878. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3879. node.
  3880. This was requested by Tom.
  3881. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3882. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3883. example by viewing from the agenda.
  3884. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
