  6. Please send Org bug reports to emacs-orgmode@gnu.org.
  7. * Version 8.2
  8. ** Incompatible changes
  9. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  10. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  11. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  12. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  13. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  14. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  15. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  16. with this:
  17. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  18. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  19. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  20. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  21. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  22. So you need to replace
  23. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  24. by
  25. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  26. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  27. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  28. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  29. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  30. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  31. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  32. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  33. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  34. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  35. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  36. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  37. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  38. of a symbol.
  39. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  40. ** Important bugfixes
  41. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  42. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  43. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  44. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  45. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  46. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  47. ** New features
  48. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  49. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  50. of the list.
  51. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  52. - Support SVG images
  53. - Support for .pgf files
  54. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  55. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  56. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  57. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  58. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  59. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  60. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  61. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  62. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  63. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  64. in a paragraph-like way.
  65. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  66. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  67. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  68. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  69. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  70. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  71. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  72. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  73. which can then be passed to export functions like
  74. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  75. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  76. registering a new back-end.
  77. *** New agenda fortnight view
  78. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  79. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  80. ** New options
  81. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  82. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  83. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  84. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  85. See http://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  86. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  87. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  88. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  89. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  90. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  91. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  92. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  93. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  94. of =ox-rss.el=.
  95. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  96. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  97. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  98. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  99. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  100. See [[http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  101. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  102. If you set this to the following
  103. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  104. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  105. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  106. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  107. =C-o= in tables.
  108. ** New contributed packages
  109. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  110. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  111. software.
  112. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  113. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  114. ** Miscellaneous
  115. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  116. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  117. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  118. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  119. the same with example blocks.
  120. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  121. release.
  122. * Version 8.0.1
  123. ** Installation
  124. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  125. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  126. instructions:
  127. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  128. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  129. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  130. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  131. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  132. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  133. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  134. detailed explanations.
  135. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  136. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  137. function has been called already.
  138. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  139. installation.
  140. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  141. ** Incompatible changes
  142. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  143. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  144. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  145. you will have to update them.
  146. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  147. See http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  148. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  149. **** New export engine
  150. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  151. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  152. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  153. /all/ export back-ends.
  154. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  155. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  156. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  157. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  158. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  159. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  160. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  161. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  162. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  163. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  164. manual for details and check [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  165. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  166. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  167. should now be written
  168. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  169. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  170. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  171. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  172. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  173. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  174. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  175. now fully removed.
  176. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  177. remember templates into capture templates.
  178. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  179. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  180. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  181. **** Note for third-party developers
  182. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  183. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  184. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  185. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  186. code.
  187. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  188. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  189. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  190. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  191. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  192. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  193. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  194. user-base.

  257. entirely with Org.
  258. ** New features
  259. *** Export
  260. **** New export generic options
  261. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  262. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  263. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  264. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  265. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  266. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  267. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  268. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  269. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  270. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  271. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  272. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  273. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  274. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  275. contains time-stamps.
  276. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  277. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  278. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  279. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  280. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  281. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  282. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  283. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  284. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  285. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  286. *** Structure editing
  287. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  288. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  289. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  290. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  291. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  292. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  293. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  294. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  295. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  296. region.
  297. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  298. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  299. _words__= will preserve markup.
  300. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  301. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  302. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  303. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  304. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  305. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  306. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  307. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  308. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  309. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  310. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  311. forward and backward.
  312. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  313. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  314. Now Org will sort this list
  315. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  316. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  317. like this:
  318. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  319. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  320. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  321. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  322. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  323. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  324. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  325. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  326. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  327. local variable.
  328. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  329. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  330. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  331. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  332. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  333. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  334. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  335. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  336. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  337. option to =nil=.
  338. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  339. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  340. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  341. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  342. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  343. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  344. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  345. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  346. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  347. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  348. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  349. *** Scheduled/deadline
  350. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  351. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  352. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  353. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  354. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  355. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  356. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  357. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  358. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  359. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  360. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  361. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  362. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  363. control this globally or per agenda.
  364. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  365. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  366. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  367. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  368. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  369. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  370. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  371. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  372. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  373. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  374. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  375. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  376. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  377. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  378. (kbd "@")
  379. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  380. #+END_SRC
  381. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  382. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  383. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  384. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  385. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  386. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  387. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  388. only show their description, not the full links.
  389. *** Agenda
  390. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  391. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  392. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  393. want to build a list of appointments.
  394. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  395. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  396. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  397. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  398. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  399. time value (i.e. appointments).
  400. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  401. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  402. | Strategy | Explanations |
  403. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  404. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  405. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  406. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  407. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  408. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  409. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  410. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  411. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  412. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  413. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  414. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  415. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  416. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  417. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  418. These new options are available:
  419. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  420. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  421. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  422. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  423. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  424. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  425. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  426. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  427. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  428. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  429. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  430. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  431. non-tagged headlines.
  432. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  433. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  434. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  435. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  436. that take only =N= minutes.
  437. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  438. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  439. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  440. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  441. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  442. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  443. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  444. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  445. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  446. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  447. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  448. list of notes.
  449. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  450. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  451. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  452. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  453. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  454. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  455. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  456. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  457. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  458. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  459. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  460. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  461. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  462. outline tree.
  463. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  464. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  465. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  466. asks for a confirmation.
  467. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  468. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  469. the mark of the entry at point.
  470. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  471. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  472. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  473. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  474. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  475. level 1.
  476. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  477. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  478. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  479. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  480. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  481. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  482. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  483. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  484. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  485. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  486. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  487. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  488. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  489. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  490. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  491. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  492. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  493. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  494. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  495. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  496. Read the full docstring for details.
  497. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  498. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  499. : * Task
  500. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  501. *** Capture
  502. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  503. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  504. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  505. capture template.
  506. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  507. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  508. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  509. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  510. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  511. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  512. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  513. check against the name of the buffer.
  514. *** Tag groups
  515. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  516. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  517. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  518. of those tags.)
  519. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  520. agenda views, and for filtering.
  521. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  522. *** Links
  523. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  524. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  525. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  526. through new link protocols (see [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  527. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  528. as if the protocol was not known.
  529. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  530. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  531. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  532. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  533. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  534. active.
  535. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  536. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  537. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  538. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  539. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  540. When storing a link to a headline like
  541. : * See [[http://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  542. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  543. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  544. there is no description.
  545. *** Table
  546. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  547. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  548. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  549. those other formulas.
  550. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  551. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  552. [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  553. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  554. the end.
  555. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  556. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  557. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  558. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  559. doing computation.
  560. **** New lookup functions
  561. There are now three lookup functions:
  562. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  563. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  564. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  565. See [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  566. *** Startup keywords
  567. These new startup keywords are now available:
  568. | Startup keyword | Option |
  569. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  570. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  571. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  572. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  573. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  574. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  575. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  576. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  577. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  578. *** Clocking
  579. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  580. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  581. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  582. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  583. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  584. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  585. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  586. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  587. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  588. the clocktable.
  589. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  590. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  591. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  592. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  593. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  594. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  595. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  596. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  597. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  598. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  599. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  600. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  601. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  602. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  603. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  604. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  605. *** Babel
  606. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  607. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  608. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  609. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  610. same target than the block at point.
  611. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  612. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  613. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  614. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  615. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  616. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  617. time.
  618. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  619. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  620. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  621. manual for a usage example.
  622. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  623. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  624. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  625. collecting blocks for tangling.
  626. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  627. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  628. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  629. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  630. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  631. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  632. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  633. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  634. *** Faces
  635. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  636. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  637. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  638. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  639. ** Miscellaneous
  640. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  641. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  642. - [[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]]
  643. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  644. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  645. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  646. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  647. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  648. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  649. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  650. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  651. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  652. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  653. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  654. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  655. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  656. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  657. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports MacOSX version up to 10.8
  658. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  659. ** Outside Org
  660. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  661. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  662. You can read the [[http://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  663. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  664. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  665. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  666. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  667. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  668. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  669. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  670. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  671. found here: http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  672. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  673. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  674. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  675. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  676. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  677. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  678. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  679. * Version 7.9.3
  680. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  681. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  682. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  683. agenda views.)
  684. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  685. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  686. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  687. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  688. agenda type to this variable.
  689. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  690. generation.
  691. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  692. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  693. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  694. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  695. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  696. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  697. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  698. invisible) blocked tasks.
  699. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  700. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  701. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  702. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  703. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  704. ** No GPL manual anymore
  705. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  706. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  707. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  708. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  709. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  710. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  711. in most environments.
  712. * Version 7.9.2
  713. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  714. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  715. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  716. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  717. #+END_SRC
  718. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  719. available through http://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  720. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  721. directory.)
  722. See http://orgmode.org/elpa/
  723. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  724. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  725. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  726. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  727. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |
  728. | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] |

  736. | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= |
  737. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  738. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  739. ** New package and Babel language
  740. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  741. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  742. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  743. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  744. ** Incompatible changes
  745. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  746. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  747. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  748. instead.
  749. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  750. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  751. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  752. ** New features and user-visible changes
  753. *** Org Element
  754. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  755. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  756. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  757. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  758. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  759. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  760. See the docstrings for more details.
  761. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  762. on =org-element.el=.
  763. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  764. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  765. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  766. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  767. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  768. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  769. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  770. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  771. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  772. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  773. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  774. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  775. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  776. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  777. elements.
  778. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  779. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  780. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  781. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  782. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  783. item. Etc.
  784. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  785. the whole list.
  786. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  787. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  788. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  789. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  790. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  791. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  792. the same level.
  793. *** Org Agenda
  794. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  795. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  796. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  797. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  798. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  799. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  800. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  801. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  802. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  803. generating new ones.
  804. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  805. agenda buffer.
  806. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  807. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  808. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  809. to this value
  810. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  811. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  812. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  813. #+END_SRC
  814. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  815. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  816. details on how to use this.
  817. **** Changes in bulk actions
  818. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  819. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  820. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  821. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  822. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  823. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  824. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  825. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  826. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  827. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  828. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  829. =t=.
  830. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  831. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  832. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  833. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  834. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  835. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  836. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  837. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  838. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  839. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  840. =f= or =w=).
  841. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  842. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  843. of deadline.
  844. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  845. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  846. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  847. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  848. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  849. several times.
  850. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  851. See the [[http://orgmode.org/w/?p%3Dorg-mode.git%3Ba%3Dcommit%3Bh%3Df426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  852. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  853. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  854. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  855. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  856. filters and category filters.
  857. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  858. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  859. configuration.
  860. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  861. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  862. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  863. point.
  864. *** Org Links
  865. **** Inserting links
  866. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  867. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  868. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  869. want to insert.
  870. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  871. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  872. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  873. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  874. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  875. highlighted.
  876. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  877. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  878. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  879. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  880. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  881. **** New link type =help=
  882. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  883. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  884. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  885. you go back to the same buffer.
  886. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  887. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  888. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  889. =org-stored-links=.
  890. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  891. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  892. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  893. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  894. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  895. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  896. *** Org Editing
  897. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  898. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  899. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  900. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  901. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  902. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  903. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  904. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  905. all headlines in the region.
  906. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  907. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  908. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  909. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  910. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  911. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  912. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  913. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  914. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  915. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  916. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  917. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  918. undo RET=.
  919. *** Org Clock
  920. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  921. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  922. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  923. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  924. clocked entry, if any.
  925. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  926. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  927. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  928. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  929. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  930. out.
  931. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  932. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  933. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  934. arguments).
  935. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  936. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  937. in.
  938. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  939. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  940. cells in clockreport.
  941. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  942. time cells in clockreport.
  943. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  944. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  945. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  946. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  947. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  948. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  949. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  950. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  951. space in the frame title.
  952. *** Org Appearance
  953. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  954. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  955. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  956. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  957. don't want to see temporarily.
  958. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  959. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  960. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  961. There are these new entities:
  962. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  963. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  964. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  965. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  966. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  967. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  968. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  969. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  970. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  971. The face is back to a normal height.
  972. *** Org Columns
  973. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  974. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  975. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  976. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  977. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  978. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  979. block will use its value as the column format.
  980. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  981. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  982. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  983. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  984. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  985. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  986. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  987. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  988. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  989. You can now use
  990. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  991. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  992. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  993. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  994. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  995. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  996. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  997. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  998. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  999. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  1000. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  1001. *** Org Capture
  1002. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  1003. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  1004. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  1005. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  1006. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  1007. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  1008. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  1009. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  1010. set to this value
  1011. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1012. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  1013. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  1014. #+END_SRC
  1015. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  1016. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  1017. more details on how to use this.
  1018. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  1019. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  1020. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  1021. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  1022. =nil=.
  1023. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  1024. See the manual for more explanations.
  1025. **** More control over empty lines
  1026. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  1027. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  1028. explanations.
  1029. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  1030. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  1031. *** Org Export
  1032. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  1033. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  1034. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  1035. available) to print beautiful tables.
  1036. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  1037. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  1038. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  1039. the table.
  1040. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  1041. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  1042. in the #+DATE option.
  1043. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  1044. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  1045. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  1046. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  1047. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  1048. More languages are always welcome.
  1049. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  1050. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  1051. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  1052. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  1053. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[http://orgmode.org/w/?p%3Dorg-mode.git%3Ba%3Dcommit%3Bh%3De9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  1054. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  1055. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  1056. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  1057. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  1058. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  1059. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  1060. *** Org Babel
  1061. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  1062. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  1063. supported.
  1064. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  1065. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  1066. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  1067. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  1068. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  1069. It used to exports the results of the code.
  1070. *** Miscellaneous
  1071. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  1072. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  1073. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  1074. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  1075. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  1076. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  1077. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  1078. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  1079. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  1080. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  1081. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  1082. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  1083. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  1084. alarm.
  1085. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  1086. This will increment the effort value.
  1087. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  1088. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  1089. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  1090. attach symbolic links.
  1091. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  1092. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  1093. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  1094. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  1095. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  1096. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  1097. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  1098. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  1099. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  1100. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  1101. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  1102. all top level list items.
  1103. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  1104. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  1105. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  1106. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  1107. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  1108. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  1109. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  1110. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  1111. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  1112. first headline in the region.
  1113. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  1114. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  1115. agenda.
  1116. ** Important bug fixes
  1117. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  1118. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  1119. perform completion with meaningful values.
  1120. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  1121. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  1122. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  1123. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  1124. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  1125. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  1126. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  1127. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  1128. license.
  1129. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  1130. the code and the license to your needs.
  1131. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  1132. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  1133. * Version 7.8.11
  1134. ** Incompatible changes
  1135. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  1136. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[http://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  1137. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  1138. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  1139. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  1140. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  1141. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  1142. last-minute save.
  1143. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  1144. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  1145. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  1146. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  1147. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  1148. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  1149. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  1150. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  1151. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  1152. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  1153. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  1154. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  1155. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  1156. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  1157. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  1158. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  1159. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  1160. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  1161. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  1162. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  1163. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  1164. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  1165. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  1166. #+end_src
  1167. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  1168. setup./
  1169. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  1170. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  1171. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  1172. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  1173. The two new variables are:
  1174. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  1175. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  1176. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  1177. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  1178. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  1179. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  1180. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  1181. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  1182. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  1183. classes.
  1184. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  1185. document are:
  1186. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  1187. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  1188. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  1189. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  1190. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  1191. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  1192. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  1193. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  1194. #+begin_example
  1195. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  1196. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  1197. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  1198. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  1199. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  1200. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  1201. #+end_example
  1202. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  1203. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  1204. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  1205. applies to the following packages:

  1221. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  1222. you are using, you can remove it from
  1223. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  1224. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  1225. properly.
  1226. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  1227. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  1228. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  1229. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  1230. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  1231. the header.
  1232. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  1233. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  1234. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  1235. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  1236. code using it.
  1237. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  1238. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  1239. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  1240. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  1241. ** Important new features
  1242. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  1243. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  1244. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  1245. for more information on how to customize it.
  1246. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  1247. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  1248. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  1249. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  1250. section [[http://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  1251. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  1252. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  1253. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  1254. To switch over to the new system:
  1255. 1. Run
  1256. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  1257. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  1258. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  1259. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  1260. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  1261. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  1262. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  1263. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  1264. customization.
  1265. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  1266. with org-remember:
  1267. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  1268. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  1269. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  1270. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  1271. with using both system in parallel.
  1272. ** New libraries
  1273. *** New Org libraries
  1274. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  1275. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  1276. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  1277. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  1278. To use, put the following in your init file:
  1279. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1280. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  1281. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1282. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  1283. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  1284. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  1285. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  1286. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  1287. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  1288. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  1289. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  1290. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  1291. anything.
  1292. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  1293. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  1294. He also wrote a [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  1295. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  1296. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  1297. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  1298. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  1299. /org-ctags.el/.
  1300. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  1301. call function to do something special with text links.
  1302. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  1303. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  1304. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  1305. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  1306. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  1307. Org-mode manual:
  1308. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  1309. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  1310. *** New Babel libraries
  1311. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  1312. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  1313. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  1314. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  1315. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  1316. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  1317. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  1318. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  1319. *** Hyperlinks
  1320. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  1321. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  1322. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  1323. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  1324. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  1325. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  1326. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  1327. The key new functions are
  1328. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  1329. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  1330. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  1331. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  1332. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  1333. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  1334. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  1335. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  1336. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  1337. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  1338. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  1339. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  1340. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  1341. **** Modified link escaping
  1342. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  1343. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  1344. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  1345. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  1346. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  1347. : link).
  1348. :
  1349. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  1350. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  1351. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  1352. : percent escaped links are solved.
  1353. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  1354. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  1355. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  1356. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  1357. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  1358. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  1359. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  1360. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  1361. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  1362. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  1363. string to be executed.
  1364. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  1365. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  1366. to org-file-apps:
  1367. #+begin_example
  1368. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  1369. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  1370. #+end_example
  1371. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  1372. *** Dates and time
  1373. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  1374. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  1375. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  1376. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  1377. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  1378. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  1379. will work on the current entry.
  1380. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  1381. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  1382. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  1383. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  1384. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  1385. #+begin_example
  1386. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  1387. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  1388. #+end_example
  1389. *** Agenda
  1390. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  1391. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  1392. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  1393. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  1394. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  1395. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  1396. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  1397. entries using a function.
  1398. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  1399. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  1400. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  1401. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  1402. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  1403. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  1404. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  1405. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  1406. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  1407. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  1408. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  1409. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  1410. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  1411. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  1412. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  1413. *** Exporting
  1414. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  1415. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  1416. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  1417. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  1418. docstring of these variable for details about available
  1419. %-sequences.
  1420. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  1421. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  1422. formatting string will insert a string.
  1423. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  1424. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  1425. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  1426. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  1427. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  1428. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  1429. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  1430. C-e u=, respectively.
  1431. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  1432. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  1433. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  1434. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  1435. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  1436. your preference.
  1437. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  1438. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  1439. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  1440. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  1441. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  1442. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  1443. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  1444. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  1445. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  1446. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  1447. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[http://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  1448. section]] in the manual for more details.
  1449. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  1450. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  1451. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  1452. individual could.
  1453. *** Refiling
  1454. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  1455. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  1456. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  1457. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  1458. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  1459. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  1460. **** New logging support for refiling
  1461. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  1462. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  1463. =org-log-refile=.
  1464. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  1465. *** Completion
  1466. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  1467. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  1468. *** Tables
  1469. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  1470. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  1471. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  1472. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  1473. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  1474. the displayed in the buffer.
  1475. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  1476. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  1477. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  1478. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  1479. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  1480. |--------+--------+---------|
  1481. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  1482. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  1483. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  1484. optional.
  1485. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  1486. feedback on this.
  1487. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  1488. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  1489. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  1490. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  1491. : things like
  1492. :
  1493. : @3=
  1494. : @2$2..@5$7=
  1495. : @I$2..@II$4=
  1496. :
  1497. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  1498. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  1499. : table.
  1500. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  1501. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  1502. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  1503. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  1504. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  1505. *** Lists
  1506. **** Improved handling of lists
  1507. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  1508. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  1509. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  1510. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  1511. indented than it.
  1512. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  1513. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  1514. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  1515. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  1516. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  1517. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  1518. `org-list-export-context'.
  1519. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  1520. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  1521. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  1522. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  1523. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  1524. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  1525. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  1526. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  1527. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  1528. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  1529. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  1530. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  1531. *** Inline display of linked images
  1532. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  1533. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  1534. that have no description part will be inlined.
  1535. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  1536. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  1537. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  1538. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  1539. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  1540. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  1541. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  1542. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  1543. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  1544. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  1545. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  1546. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  1547. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  1548. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  1549. tangling
  1550. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  1551. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  1552. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  1553. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  1554. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  1555. properties or in tables.
  1556. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  1557. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  1558. names, and rownames across all languages.
  1559. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  1560. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  1561. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  1562. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  1563. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  1564. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  1565. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  1566. request by Scott Otterson.
  1567. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  1568. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  1569. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  1570. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  1571. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  1572. superscripts, see the variable
  1573. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  1574. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  1575. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  1576. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  1577. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  1578. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  1579. following new faces:
  1580. =org-document-title=
  1581. =org-document-info=
  1582. =org-document-info-keyword=
  1583. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  1584. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  1585. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  1586. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  1587. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  1588. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  1589. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  1590. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  1591. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  1592. property is affected by this setting.
  1593. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  1594. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  1595. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  1596. Requested by Michael Brand.
  1597. **** Better level cycling function
  1598. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  1599. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  1600. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  1601. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  1602. **** Adaptive filling
  1603. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  1604. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  1605. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  1606. comments to be filled correctly.
  1607. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  1608. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  1609. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  1610. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  1611. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  1612. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  1613. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  1614. *** Clocking
  1615. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  1616. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  1617. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  1618. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  1619. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  1620. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  1621. **** Localized clock tables
  1622. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  1623. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  1624. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  1625. available translated strings.
  1626. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  1627. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  1628. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  1629. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  1630. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  1631. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  1632. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  1633. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  1634. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  1635. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  1636. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  1637. =nil=.
  1638. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  1639. *** Misc
  1640. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  1641. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  1642. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  1643. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  1644. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  1645. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  1646. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  1647. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  1648. property) back.
  1649. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  1650. change.
  1651. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  1652. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  1653. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  1654. #+begin_example
  1655. org-table-get
  1656. org-table-put
  1657. org-table-current-line
  1658. org-table-goto-line
  1659. #+end_example
  1660. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  1661. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  1662. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  1663. node.
  1664. This was requested by Tom.
  1665. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  1666. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  1667. example by viewing from the agenda.
  1668. This was a request by Matt Lundin.
