  8. * Version 9.3
  9. ** Incompatible changes
  10. *** Change bracket link escaping syntax
  11. Org used to percent-encode sensitive characters in the URI part of the
  12. bracket links.
  13. Now, escaping mechanism uses the usual backslash character, according
  14. to the following rules, applied in order:
  15. 1. All consecutive =\= characters at the end of the link must be
  16. escaped;
  17. 2. Any =]= character at the very end of the link must be escaped;
  18. 3. All consecutive =\= characters preceding =][= or =]]= patterns must
  19. be escaped;
  20. 4. Any =]= character followed by either =[= or =]= must be escaped;
  21. 5. Others =]= and =\= characters need not be escaped.
  22. When in doubt, use the function ~org-link-escape~ in order to turn
  23. a link string into its properly escaped form.
  24. The following function will help switching your links to the new
  25. syntax:
  26. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  27. (defun org-update-link-syntax (&optional no-query)
  28. "Update syntax for links in current buffer.
  29. Query before replacing a link, unless optional argument NO-QUERY
  30. is non-nil."
  31. (interactive "P")
  32. (org-with-point-at 1
  33. (let ((case-fold-search t))
  34. (while (re-search-forward "\\[\\[[^]]*?%\\(?:2[05]\\|5[BD]\\)" nil t)
  35. (let ((object (save-match-data (org-element-context))))
  36. (when (and (eq 'link (org-element-type object))
  37. (= (match-beginning 0)
  38. (org-element-property :begin object)))
  39. (goto-char (org-element-property :end object))
  40. (let* ((uri-start (+ 2 (match-beginning 0)))
  41. (uri-end (save-excursion
  42. (goto-char uri-start)
  43. (re-search-forward "\\][][]" nil t)
  44. (match-beginning 0)))
  45. (uri (buffer-substring-no-properties uri-start uri-end)))
  46. (when (or no-query
  47. (y-or-n-p
  48. (format "Possibly obsolete URI syntax: %S. Fix? "
  49. uri)))
  50. (setf (buffer-substring uri-start uri-end)
  51. (org-link-escape (org-link-decode uri)))))))))))
  52. #+end_src
  53. The old ~org-link-escape~ and ~org-link-unescape~ functions have been
  54. renamed into ~org-link-encode~ and ~org-link-decode~.
  55. *** Change match group number in ~org-link-bracket-re~
  56. Link description, if any, is located in match group 2 instead of match
  57. group 3.
  58. *** ob-clojure does not auto prepend ~(ns ..)~ statement anymore
  59. When tangling, user usually just wants to tangle literally code instead
  60. of prepend inserting a ~(ns ..)~ statement before source block
  61. code. Now, when you have no ~:ns~ header argument specified, this
  62. behavior will not happend automatically.
  63. *** Change in behavior on exit from an Org edit buffer
  64. Org will no longer attempt to restore the window configuration in the
  65. frame to which the user returns after editing a source block with
  66. ~org-edit-src-code~. Instead, the window configuration will remain as
  67. it is.
  68. *** Change default value for ~org-email-link-description-format~
  69. When linking from a mail buffer, Org used to truncate the subject of
  70. the message to 30 characters in order to build the description of the
  71. link. This behavior was considered as too surprising. As
  72. a consequence, Org no longer truncates subjects.
  73. You can get the old behaviour back with the following:
  74. : (setq org-email-link-description-format "Email %c: %.30s")
  75. *** ~:file~ header argument no longer assume "file" ~:results~
  76. The "file" ~:results~ value is now mandatory for a code block
  77. returning a link to a file. The ~:file~ or ~:file-ext~ header
  78. arguments no longer imply a "file" result is expected.
  79. *** Plain numbers are hours in Column View mode
  80. See [[git:3367ac9457]] for details.
  81. *** All LaTeX preview backends use now xcolor
  82. The dvipng backend was previously relying on fg and bg parameters to
  83. be passed to the CLI. This didn't work when xcolor was directly or
  84. indirectly used in the document (e.g. tkiz is a user of xcolor). Since
  85. every other backend was already using xcolor to set fg and bg, the CLI
  86. alternative was removed and there is no more a :use-xcolor options
  87. since now it's implicitly always true.
  88. *** Org-Attach Git commit
  89. [[*Org-Attach has been refactored and extended][Refactoring of Org-Attach]] affected the Git commit functionality. Not
  90. much, but the following changes are required if you still need to
  91. auto-commit attachments to git:
  92. - Customization of ~org-attach-annex-auto-get~ needs to be renamed to
  93. ~org-attach-git-annex-auto-get~.
  94. - Customization of ~org-attach-commit~ is no longer needed. Instead
  95. one need to require the =org-attach-git= module in the startup.
  96. ** New features
  97. *** Org-Attach has been refactored and extended
  98. Org attach has been refactored and the functionality extended. It
  99. should now be easier to understand how it works. A few improvements
  100. and extra options have been added as well.
  101. From the initial comment in org-attach source-code:
  102. - Attachments are managed either by using a custom property DIR or by
  103. using property ID from org-id. When DIR is defined, a location in
  104. the filesystem is directly attached to the outline node. When
  105. org-id is used, attachments are stored in a folder named after the
  106. ID, in a location defined by ~org-attach-id-dir~. DIR has
  107. precedence over ID when both parameters are defined for the current
  108. outline node (also when inherited parameters are taken into
  109. account).
  110. From now on inheritance requires no extra property and will adhere to
  111. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~ by default. Inheritance can be
  112. customized to always be activated or never be activated in
  113. ~org-attach-use-inheritance~.
  114. The ATTACH_DIR property is deprecated in favour of the shorter
  115. property DIR. Links to folders inside the DIR property can now be
  116. declared as relative links. This is not enabled by default, but can
  117. be set in ~org-attach-dir-relative~.
  118. When adding new attachment to the outline node the preferred way of
  119. doing so can be customized. Take a look at
  120. ~org-attach-preferred-new-method~. It defaults to using ID since that
  121. was the behaviour before this change.
  122. If both DIR and ID properties are set on the same node, DIR has
  123. precedence and will be used.
  124. One can now also choose to build attachment-directory-paths in a
  125. customized way. This is an advanced topic, but in some case it makes
  126. sense to parse an ID in a different way than the default one. Create
  127. your own function and use it is ~org-attach-id-to-path-function~ if
  128. you want to customize the ID-based folder structure.
  129. If you've used ATTACH_DIR properties to manage attachments, use the
  130. following code to rename that property to DIR which supports the same
  131. functionality. ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT is no longer supported and is
  132. removed.
  133. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  134. (defun org-update-attach-properties ()
  135. "Change properties for Org-Attach."
  136. (interactive)
  137. (org-with-point-at 1
  138. (while (outline-next-heading)
  139. (let ((DIR (org--property-local-values "ATTACH_DIR" nil)))
  140. (when DIR
  141. (org-set-property "DIR" (car DIR))
  142. (org-delete-property "ATTACH_DIR"))))
  143. (org-delete-property-globally "ATTACH_DIR_INHERIT")))
  144. #+end_src
  145. For those who hate breaking changes, even though the changes are made
  146. to clean things up; fear not. ATTACH_DIR will still continue to work.
  147. It's just not documented any longer. When you get the chance, run the
  148. code above to clean things up anyways!
  149. **** New hooks
  150. Two hooks are added to org-attach:
  151. - org-attach-after-change-hook
  152. - org-attach-open-hook
  153. They are added mostly for internal restructuring purposes, but can
  154. ofc. be used for other things as well.
  155. *** New link-type: Attachment
  156. Attachment-links are now first-class citizens. They mimick file-links
  157. in everything they do but use the existing attachment-folder as a base
  158. when expanding the links. Both =DIR= and =ID= properties are used to
  159. try to resolve the links, in exactly the same way as Org-Attach uses
  160. those properties.
  161. *** Handle overlay specification for notes in Beamer export
  162. This aligns Beamer notes with slide overlays.
  163. *** Add support for lettered lists in Texinfo
  164. Using =:enum A= or =:enum a= Texinfo attribute switches an otherwise
  165. numbered list to a lettered list.
  166. *** Add a dispatcher command to insert dynamic blocks
  167. You can add new dynamic blocks with function
  168. ~org-dynamic-block-define~. All such dynamic blocks can be used by
  169. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~ command.
  170. *** Babel
  171. **** ob-emacs-lisp sets ~lexical-binding~ in Org edit buffers
  172. When editing an Elisp src block, the editing buffer's
  173. ~lexical-binding~ is set according to the src block's =:lexical=
  174. parameter.
  175. **** Add LaTeX output support in PlantUML
  176. *** New minor mode to display headline numbering
  177. Use =<M-x org-num-mode>= to get a visual indication of the numbering
  178. in the outline. The numbering is also automatically updated upon
  179. changes in the buffer.
  180. *** New property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= in HTML export
  181. The new property =HTML_HEADLINE_CLASS= assigns a class attribute to
  182. a headline.
  183. *** Allow LaTeX attributes and captions for "table.el" tables
  184. Supported LaTeX attributes are ~:float~, ~:center~, ~:font~ and
  185. ~:caption~.
  186. *** Attach buffer contents to headline
  187. With =<b>= key from attachment dispatcher (=<C-c C-a>=), it is now
  188. possible to write the contents of a buffer to a file in the headline
  189. attachement directory.
  190. *** iCalendar export respects a =CLASS= property
  191. Set the =CLASS= property on an entry to specify a visibility class for
  192. that entry only during iCalendar export. The property can be set to
  193. anything the calendar server supports. The iCalendar standard defines
  194. the values =PUBLIC=, =CONFIDENTIAL=, =PRIVATE=, which can be
  195. interpreted as publicly visable, accessible to a specific group, and
  196. private respectively.
  197. This property can be inherited during iCalendar export, depending on
  198. the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  199. *** New parameter for =INCLUDE= keyword
  200. Add =:coding CODING-SYSTEM= to include files using a different coding
  201. system than the main Org document. For example:
  202. #+begin_example
  203. ,#+INCLUDE: "myfile.cmd" src cmd :coding cp850-dos
  204. #+end_example
  205. *** New values in clock tables' step: =month= and =year=
  206. *** ODT export handles numbers cookies in lists
  207. *** New cell movement functions in tables
  208. ~S-<UP>~, ~S-<DOWN>~, ~S-<RIGHT>~, and ~S-<LEFT>~ now move cells in
  209. the corresponding direction by swapping with the adjacent cell.
  210. *** New option to natively fontify LaTeX snippets and environments
  211. A 'native option was added to org-highlight-latex-and-related. It
  212. matches the same structures than 'latex but it calls
  213. org-src-font-lock-fontify-block instead, thus bringing about full
  214. LaTeX font locking.
  215. *** ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ learnt to shift backward in time
  216. =<C-c C-x c>= (~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~) now takes a
  217. negative value as a valid repeater to shift time stamps in backward
  218. in cloned subtrees. You can give, for example, ‘-3d’ to shift three
  219. days in the past.
  220. *** Toggle display of all vs. undone scheduled habits conveniently
  221. =<C-u K>= (~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~) in an agenda toggles
  222. the display of all habits to those which are undone and scheduled.
  223. This is a function for convenience.
  224. *** New paramater for SQL Babel blocks: ~:dbconnection~
  225. The new paramater ~:dbconnection~ allows to specify a connection name
  226. in a SQL block header: this name is used to look up connection
  227. parameters in ~sql-connection-alist~.
  228. *** New =:scale= attribute supported by LaTeX exporters
  229. The builtin "latex" exporters now accept and use a =:scale= attribute,
  230. which scales an image by a given factor.
  231. This attribute is wrapped adound the =scale= parameter of LaTeX's
  232. =\includegraphics= (bitmap images) or a TiKZ's =\scalebox=.
  233. Therefore, its value should be some string palatable to LaTeX as
  234. a positive float Its default value is an empty string (i.e. disabled).
  235. This attribute overrides the =:width= and =:height= attributes.
  236. #+begin_example
  237. ,#+name: Beastie
  238. ,#+caption: I think I saw this curious horse already, but where ?
  239. ,#+LATEX_ATTR: :scale 2
  240. [[https://orgmode.org/img/org-mode-unicorn-logo.png]]
  241. #+end_example
  242. *** Allow specifying the target for a table of contents
  243. The =+TOC= keyword now accepts a =:target:= attribute that specifies
  244. the headline to use for making the table of contents.
  245. #+begin_example
  246. ,* Target
  247. :PROPERTIES:
  248. :CUSTOM_ID: TargetSection
  249. :END:
  250. ,** Heading A
  251. ,** Heading B
  252. ,* Another section
  253. ,#+TOC: headlines 1 :target "#TargetSection"
  254. #+end_example
  255. ** New functions
  256. *** ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~
  257. Use default keybinding =<C-c C-x x>= to run command
  258. ~org-dynamic-block-insert-dblock~. It will prompt user to select
  259. dynamic block in ~org-dynamic-block-alist~.
  260. *** ~org-table-cell-up~
  261. *** ~org-table-cell-down~
  262. *** ~org-table-cell-left~
  263. *** ~org-table-cell-right~
  264. *** ~org-habit-toggle-display-in-agenda~
  265. ** Removed functions
  266. *** Removed Org Drill
  267. You can install it back from MELPA.
  268. *** ~org-babel-set-current-result-hash~
  269. *** ~org-capture-insert-template-here~
  270. *** ~org-attach-directory~
  271. It has been deprecated in favour of ~org-attach-id-dir~ which is less
  272. ambigous given the restructured org-attach.
  273. ** Miscellaneous
  274. *** Change signature for ~org-list-to-subtree~
  275. The function now accepts the level of the subtree as an optional
  276. argument. It no longer deduces it from the current level.
  277. *** LaTeX preview is simplified
  278. Function ~org-latex-preview~, formerly known as
  279. ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~, has a hopefully simpler and more
  280. predictable behavior. See its docstring for details.
  281. *** ~org-table-copy-down~ supports patterns
  282. When ~org-table-copy-increment~ is non-nil, it is now possible to
  283. increment fields like =A1=, or =0A=, i.e., any string prefixed or
  284. suffixed with a whole number.
  285. *** No more special indentation for description items
  286. Descriptions items are indented like regular ones, i.e., text starts
  287. after the bullet. Special indentation used to introduce bugs when
  288. inserting sub-items in a description list.
  289. *** New hook: ~org-todo-repeat-hook~
  290. This hook was actually introduced in Org 9.2.1, but wasn't advertised.
  291. *** Org Table reads numbers starting with 0 as strings
  292. *** Disable fast tag selection interface via prefix arg
  293. A call of ~org-set-tags-command~ with prefix argument C-u C-u avoids
  294. the fast tag selection interface and instead offers the plain
  295. interface.
  296. *** ~:mkdirp~ now supports create directory for ~:dir~ path
  297. The ~:mkdirp~ header argument used to only work for ~:tangle~ tangle
  298. files. Now ~:mkdirp~ works for ~:dir~ too. This is more convenient for
  299. specify default directory and with ~:file~ header argument.
  300. *** New variable: ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~
  301. If breadcrumbs are showed in org-agenda with the help of "%b" format
  302. in ~org-agenda-prefix-format~, user can customize breadcrumbs's
  303. separator using ~org-agenda-breadcrumbs-separator~.
  304. *** New variable ~org-attach-commands~
  305. This variable makes it possible to customize the list of commands for
  306. the attachment dispatcher.
  307. * Version 9.2
  308. ** Incompatible changes
  309. *** Removal of OrgStruct mode mode and radio lists
  310. OrgStruct minor mode and radio lists mechanism (~org-list-send-list~
  311. and ~org-list-radio-lists-templates~) are removed from the code base.
  312. Note that only radio /lists/ have been removed, not radio tables.
  313. If you want to manipulate lists like in Org in other modes, we suggest
  314. to use orgalist.el, which you can install from GNU ELPA.
  315. If you want to use Org folding outside of Org buffers, you can have a
  316. look at the outshine package in the MELPA repository.
  317. *** Change in the structure template expansion
  318. Org 9.2 comes with a new template expansion mechanism, combining
  319. ~org-insert-structure-template~ bound to ~C-c C-,~.
  320. If you customized the ~org-structure-template-alist~ option manually,
  321. you probably need to udpate it, see the docstring for accepted values.
  322. If you prefer using previous patterns, e.g. =<s=, you can activate
  323. them again by requiring Org Tempo library:
  324. : (require 'org-tempo)
  325. or add it to ~org-modules~.
  326. If you need complex templates, look at the ~tempo-define-template~
  327. function or at solutions like Yasnippet.
  328. *** Change to Noweb expansion
  329. Expansion check =:noweb-ref= only if no matching named block is found
  330. in the buffer. As a consequence, any =:noweb-ref= value matching the
  331. name of a source block in the buffer is ignored. A simple fix is to
  332. give every concerned source-block, including the named one, a new,
  333. unique, Noweb reference.
  334. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  335. ,#+NAME: foo
  336. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  337. 1
  338. ,#+END_SRC
  339. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref foo
  340. 2
  341. ,#+END_SRC
  342. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  343. <<foo>>
  344. ,#+END_SRC
  345. #+END_SRC
  346. should become
  347. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  348. ,#+NAME: foo
  349. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  350. 1
  351. ,#+END_SRC
  352. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb-ref bar
  353. 2
  354. ,#+END_SRC
  355. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes
  356. <<bar>>
  357. ,#+END_SRC
  358. #+END_SRC
  359. *** Default/accepted values of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  360. The default value and accepted value of ~org-calendar-to-agenda-key~
  361. changed. This is an excerpt of the new docstring:
  362. : When set to ‘default’, bind the function to ‘c’, but only if it is
  363. : available in the Calendar keymap. This is the default choice because
  364. : ‘c’ can then be used to switch back and forth between agenda and calendar.
  365. :
  366. : When nil, ‘org-calendar-goto-agenda’ is not bound to any key.
  367. Check the full docstring for more.
  368. *** Change the signature of the ~org-set-effort~ function
  369. Here is the new docstring:
  370. : (org-set-effort &optional INCREMENT VALUE)
  371. :
  372. : Set the effort property of the current entry.
  373. : If INCREMENT is non-nil, set the property to the next allowed
  374. : value. Otherwise, if optional argument VALUE is provided, use
  375. : it. Eventually, prompt for the new value if none of the previous
  376. : variables is set.
  377. *** Placeholders in =(eval ...)= macros are always strings
  378. Within =(eval ...)= macros, =$1=-like placeholders are always replaced
  379. with a string. As a consequence, they must not be enclosed within
  380. quotes. As an illustration, consider the following, now valid,
  381. examples:
  382. #+begin_example
  383. ,#+macro: join (eval (concat $1 $2))
  384. ,#+macro: sum (eval (+ (string-to-number $1) (string-to-number $2)))
  385. {{{join(a,b)}}} => ab
  386. {{{sum(1,2)}}} => 3
  387. #+end_example
  388. However, there is no change in non-eval macros:
  389. #+begin_example
  390. ,#+macro: disp argument: $1
  391. {{{disp(text)}}} => argument: text
  392. #+end_example
  393. *** =align= STARTUP value no longer narrow table columns
  394. Columns narrowing (or shrinking) is now dynamic. See [[*Dynamically
  395. narrow table columns]] for details. In particular, it is decoupled from
  396. aligning.
  397. If you need to automatically shrink columns upon opening an Org
  398. document, use =shrink= value instead, or in addition to align:
  399. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  400. ,#+STARTUP: align shrink
  401. #+END_EXAMPLE
  402. *** ~org-get-tags~ meaning change
  403. Function ~org-get-tags~ used to return local tags to the current
  404. headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the
  405. local tags. In order to get the old behaviour back, you can use:
  406. : (org-get-tags nil t)
  407. *** Alphabetic sorting in tables and lists
  408. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-table-sort-lines~ and ~org-sort-list~
  409. now sort according to the locale’s collation rules instead of by
  410. code-point.
  411. *** Change the name of the :tags clocktable option to :match
  412. The =:match= (renamed from =:tags=) option allows to limit clock entries
  413. to those matching a todo-tags matcher.
  414. The old =:tags= option can be set to =t= to display a headline's tags in a
  415. dedicated column.
  416. This is consistent with the naming of =org-dblock-write:columnview=
  417. options, where =:match= is also used as a headlines filter.
  418. ** New features
  419. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-clojure for CIDER
  420. You can initialize source block session with Babel default keybinding
  421. =[C-c C-v C-z]= to use =sesman= session manager to link current
  422. project, directory or buffer with specific Clojure session, or
  423. =cider-jack-in= a new CIDER REPL if no CIDER REPLs available. In older
  424. CIDER version which has not =sesman= integrated, only has
  425. =cider-jack-in= without Clojure project is supported.
  426. #+begin_src clojure :session
  427. (dissoc Clojure 'JVM)
  428. (conj clojurists "stardiviner")
  429. #+end_src
  430. *** Add ~:results link~ support for Babel
  431. With this output format, create a link to the file specified in
  432. ~:file~ header argument, without actually writing any result to it:
  433. #+begin_example
  434. ,#+begin_src shell :dir "data/tmp" :results link :file "crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  435. wget -c "http://ben.akrin.com/crackzor/crackzor_1.0.c.gz"
  436. ,#+end_src
  437. ,#+results:
  438. [[file:data/tmp/crackzor_1.0.c.gz]]
  439. #+end_example
  440. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for js-comint
  441. #+begin_src js :session "*Javascript REPL*"
  442. console.log("stardiviner")
  443. #+end_src
  444. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for Indium
  445. #+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"
  446. console.log("stardiviner")
  447. #+end_src
  448. *** Add ~:session~ support of ob-js for skewer-mode
  449. #+begin_src js :session "*skewer-repl*"
  450. console.log("stardiviner")
  451. #+end_src
  452. *** Add support for links to LaTeX equations in HTML export
  453. Use MathJax links when enabled (by ~org-html-with-latex~), otherwise
  454. add a label to the rendered equation.
  455. *** Org Tempo may used for snippet expansion of structure template.
  456. See manual and the commentary section in ~org-tempo.el~ for details.
  457. *** Exclude unnumbered headlines from table of contents
  458. Set their =UNNUMBERED= property to the special =notoc= value. See
  459. manual for details.
  460. *** ~org-archive~ functions update status cookies
  461. Archiving headers through ~org-archive-subtree~ and
  462. ~org-archive-to-archive-sibling~ such as the ones listed below:
  463. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  464. ,* Top [1/2]
  465. ,** DONE Completed
  466. ,** TODO Working
  467. #+END_SRC
  468. Will update the status cookie in the top level header.
  469. *** Disable =org-agenda-overriding-header= by setting to empty string
  470. The ~org-agenda-overriding-header~ inserted into agenda views can now
  471. be disabled by setting it to an empty string.
  472. *** Dynamically narrow table columns
  473. With ~C-c TAB~, it is now possible to narrow a column to the width
  474. specified by a width cookie in the column, or to 1 character if there
  475. is no such cookie. The same keybinding expands a narrowed column to
  476. its previous state.
  477. Editing the column automatically expands the whole column to its full
  478. size.
  479. *** =org-columns-summary-types= entries can take an optional COLLECT function
  480. You can use this to make collection of a property from an entry
  481. conditional on another entry. E.g. given this configuration:
  482. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  483. (defun custom/org-collect-confirmed (property)
  484. "Return `PROPERTY' for `CONFIRMED' entries"
  485. (let ((prop (org-entry-get nil property))
  486. (confirmed (org-entry-get nil "CONFIRMED")))
  487. (if (and prop (string= "[X]" confirmed))
  488. prop
  489. "0")))
  490. (setq org-columns-summary-types
  491. '(("X+" org-columns--summary-sum
  492. custom/org-collect-confirmed)))
  493. #+END_SRC
  494. You can have a file =bananas.org= containing:
  495. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  496. ,#+columns: %ITEM %CONFIRMED %Bananas{+} %Bananas(Confirmed Bananas){X+}
  497. ,* All shipments
  498. ,** Shipment 1
  499. :PROPERTIES:
  500. :CONFIRMED: [X]
  501. :Bananas: 4
  502. :END:
  503. ,** Shipment 2
  504. :PROPERTIES:
  505. :CONFIRMED: [ ]
  506. :BANANAS: 7
  507. :END:
  508. #+END_SRC
  509. ... and when going to the top of that file and entering column view
  510. you should expect to see something like:
  511. | ITEM | CONFIRMED | Bananas | Confirmed Bananas |
  512. |---------------+-----------+---------+-------------------|
  513. | All shipments | | 11 | 4 |
  514. | Shipment 1 | [X] | 4 | 4 |
  515. | Shipment 2 | [ ] | 7 | 7 |
  516. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  517. ,#+STARTUP: shrink
  518. #+END_EXAMPLE
  519. *** Allow to filter by tags/property when capturing colview
  520. You can now use =:match= to filter entries using a todo/tags/properties
  521. matcher.
  522. *** Add support for Oracle's database alias in Babel blocks
  523. =ob-sql= library already support running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  524. database using ~sqlplus~. Now it's possible to use alias names
  525. defined in =TNSNAMES= file instead of specifying full connection
  526. parameters. See example bellow.
  527. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  528. you can use the previous full connection parameters
  529. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_db_name :dbhost my_db_host :dbport 1521
  530. select sysdate from dual;
  531. ,#+END_SRC
  532. or the alias defined in your TNSNAMES file
  533. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine oracle :dbuser me :dbpassword my_insecure_password :database my_tns_alias
  534. select sysdate from dual;
  535. ,#+END_SRC
  536. #+END_SRC
  537. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ toggle agenda restriction at point
  538. You can set an agenda restriction lock with =C-x C-x <= or with =<= at the
  539. beginning of a headline when using Org speed commands. Now, if there
  540. is already a restriction at point, hitting =<= again (or =C-x C-x <=) will
  541. remove it.
  542. *** Headlines can now link to themselves in HTML export
  543. When enabling ~org-html-self-link-headlines~ the headlines exported to
  544. HTML contain a hyperlink to themselves.
  545. ** New commands and functions
  546. *** ~org-insert-structure-template~
  547. This function can be used to wrap existing text of Org elements in
  548. a #+BEGIN_FOO/#+END_FOO block. Bound to C-c C-x w by default.
  549. *** ~org-export-excluded-from-toc-p~
  550. See docstring for details.
  551. *** ~org-timestamp-to-time~
  552. *** ~org-timestamp-from-string~
  553. *** ~org-timestamp-from-time~
  554. *** ~org-attach-dired-to-subtree~
  555. See docstring for details.
  556. *** ~org-toggle-narrow-to-subtree~
  557. Toggle the narrowing state of the buffer: when in a narrowed state,
  558. widen, otherwise call ~org-narrow-to-subtree~ to narrow.
  559. This is attached to the "s" speed command, so that hitting "s" twice
  560. will go back to the widen state.
  561. *** ~org-browse-news~
  562. Browse https://orgmode.org/Changes.html to let users read informations
  563. about the last major release.
  564. There is a new menu entry for this in the "Documentation" menu item.
  565. *** ~org-info-find-node~
  566. From an Org file or an agenda switch to a suitable info page depending
  567. on the context.
  568. The function is bound to =C-c C-x I=.
  569. ** Removed commands and functions
  570. *** ~org-outline-overlay-data~
  571. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  572. *** ~org-set-outline-overlay-data~
  573. Use ~org-save-outline-visibility~ instead.
  574. *** ~org-get-string-indentation~
  575. It was not used throughout the code base.
  576. *** ~org-fix-indentation~
  577. It was not used throughout code base.
  578. *** ~org-context-p~
  579. Use ~org-element-at-point~ instead.
  580. *** ~org-preserve-lc~
  581. It is no longer used in the code base.
  582. *** ~org-try-structure-completion~
  583. Org Tempo may be used as a replacement. See details above.
  584. ** Removed options
  585. *** org-babel-use-quick-and-dirty-noweb-expansion
  586. See [[*Change to Noweb expansion][Change to Noweb expansion]] for explanations.
  587. ** Miscellaneous
  588. *** New default value for ~org-texinfo-table-scientific-notation~
  589. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  590. handled specially by default.
  591. *** New default value for ~org-latex-table-scientific-notation~
  592. It is now nil, which means numbers in scientific notation are not
  593. handled specially by default.
  594. *** New face: ~org-upcoming-distant-deadline~
  595. It is meant to be used as the face for distant deadlines, see
  596. ~org-agenda-deadline-faces~
  597. *** ~org-paste-subtree~ no longer breaks sections
  598. Unless point is at the beginning of a headline, ~org-paste-subtree~
  599. now pastes the tree before the next visible headline. If you need to
  600. break the section, use ~org-yank~ instead.
  601. *** ~org-table-insert-column~ inserts a column to the right
  602. It used to insert it on the left. With this change,
  603. ~org-table-insert-column~ and ~org-table-delete-column~ are
  604. reciprocal.
  605. *** ~org-publish-resolve-external-link~ accepts a new optional argument.
  606. *** ~org-irc.el~ now supports exporting =irc:= links properly
  607. Previously, irc links were exported by ~ox-md~ and ~ox-html~ as normal
  608. file links, which lead to them being broken in web browsers. Now both
  609. of these exporters will properly export to =irc:= links, which will
  610. open properly in irc clients from web browsers.
  611. *** ~org-comment-dwim~ (bound to =M-;=) now comments headings, if point is on a heading
  612. *** Add support for open source block in window below
  613. Set option ~org-src-window-setup~ to ~split-window-below~.
  614. *** Alphabetic sorting in headings and tags now uses the locale’s sorting rules
  615. When sorting alphabetically, ~org-sort-entries~ and
  616. ~org-tags-sort-function~ now sort according to the locale’s collation
  617. rules instead of by code-point.
  618. *** New speed command "k" to kill (cut) the subtree at point
  619. * Version 9.1
  620. ** Incompatible changes
  621. *** Variables relative to clocksum duration are obsolete
  622. ~org-time-clocksum-format~, ~org-time-clocksum-use-fractional~ and
  623. ~org-time-clocksum-fractional-format~ are obsolete. If you changed
  624. them, consider modifying ~org-duration-format~ instead.
  625. Variable ~org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations~ is also obsolete.
  626. Consider setting ~org-duration-units~ instead.
  627. *** ~org-at-timestamp-p~ optional argument accepts different values
  628. See docstrings for the allowed values. For backward compatibility,
  629. ~(org-at-timestamp-p t)~ is still supported, but should be updated
  630. accordingly.
  631. *** ~org-capture-templates~ no longer accepts S-expressions as file names
  632. Since functions are allowed there, a straightforward way to migrate
  633. is to turn, e.g.,
  634. : (file (sexp))
  635. into
  636. : (file (lambda () (sexp)))
  637. *** Deleted contributed packages
  638. =org-ebib.el, =org-bullets.el= and =org-mime.el= have been deleted
  639. from the contrib/ directory.
  640. You can now find them here :
  641. - https://github.com/joostkremers/ebib
  642. - https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets
  643. - https://github.com/org-mime/org-mime
  644. *** Change ~org-texinfo-classes~ value
  645. The value cannot support functions to create sectioning commands
  646. anymore. Also, the sectioning commands should include commands for
  647. appendices. See the docstring for more information.
  648. *** Removal of ~:sitemap-sans-extension~
  649. The publishing property is no longer recognized, as a consequence of
  650. changes to site-map generation.
  651. You can get the same functionality by setting ~:sitemap-format-entry~
  652. to the following
  653. #+BEGIN_SRC elisp
  654. (lambda (entry style project)
  655. (cond ((not (directory-name-p entry))
  656. (format "[[file:%s][%s]]"
  657. (file-name-sans-extension entry)
  658. (org-publish-find-title entry project)))
  659. ((eq style 'tree) (file-name-nondirectory (directory-file-name entry)))
  660. (t entry)))
  661. #+END_SRC
  662. *** Change signature for ~:sitemap-function~
  663. ~:sitemap-function~ now expects to be called with two arguments. See
  664. ~org-publish-project-alist~ for details.
  665. *** Change signature for some properties in ~org-list-to-generic~
  666. ~:istart~, ~:icount~, ~:iend~ and ~:isep~ now expect the type of the
  667. list as their first argument.
  668. *** Change signature for ~org-get-repeater~
  669. The optional argument is now a string to extract the repeater from.
  670. See docstring for details.
  671. *** Change signature for ~org-time-string-to-time~
  672. See docstring for changes.
  673. *** Change order of items in ~org-agenda-time-grid~
  674. ~org-agenda-time-grid~ gained an extra item to allow users to customize
  675. the string displayed after times in the agenda. See docstring for
  676. details.
  677. *** ~tags-todo~ custom searches now include DONE keywords
  678. Use "/!" markup when filtering TODO keywords to get only not-done TODO
  679. keywords.
  680. *** ~org-split-string~ returns ~("")~ when called on an empty string
  681. It used to return nil.
  682. *** Removal of =ob-scala.el=
  683. See [[https://github.com/ensime/emacs-scala-mode/issues/114][this github issue]].
  684. You can use =ob-scala.el= as packaged in scala-mode, available from the
  685. MELPA repository.
  686. ** New features
  687. *** iCalendar export uses inheritance for TIMEZONE and LOCATION properties
  688. Both these properties can be inherited during iCalendar export,
  689. depending on the value of ~org-use-property-inheritance~.
  690. *** iCalendar export respects a TIMEZONE property
  691. Set the TIMEZONE property on an entry to specify a time zone for that
  692. entry only during iCalendar export. The property value should be
  693. specified as in "Europe/London".
  694. *** ~org-attach~ can move directory contents
  695. When setting a new directory for an entry, org-attach offers to move
  696. files over from the old directory. Using a prefix arg will reset the
  697. directory to old, ID based one.
  698. *** New Org duration library
  699. This new library implements tools to read and print time durations in
  700. various formats (e.g., "H:MM", or "1d 2h 3min"...).
  701. See ~org-duration-to-minutes~ and ~org-duration-from-minutes~
  702. docstrings.
  703. *** Agenda
  704. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~
  705. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~
  706. **** New variable : ~org-deadline-past-days~
  707. See docstring for details.
  708. **** Binding C-c C-x < for ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  709. **** New auto-align default setting for =org-agenda-tags-column=
  710. =org-agenda-tags-column= can now be set to =auto=, which will
  711. automatically align tags to the right edge of the window. This is now
  712. the default setting.
  713. *** New value for ~org-publish-sitemap-sort-folders~
  714. The new ~ignore~ value effectively allows toggling inclusion of
  715. directories in published site-maps.
  716. *** Babel
  717. **** Scheme: support for tables
  718. **** Scheme: new variable: ~org-babel-scheme-null-to~
  719. This new custom option allows you to use an empty list or null symbol to
  720. format the table output, initially assigned to ~hlines~.
  721. **** Scheme: new header ~:prologue~
  722. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  723. developers to prepend code to the scheme block being processed.
  724. Multiple ~:prologue~ headers can be added each of them using a string
  725. with the content to be added.
  726. The scheme blocks are prepared by surrounding the code in the block
  727. with a let form. The content of the ~:prologue~ headers are prepended
  728. before this let form.
  729. **** Support for hledger accounting reports added
  730. **** Clojure: new setting ~org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout~
  731. Creation of a new setting to specify the Cider timeout. By setting
  732. the =org-babel-clojure-sync-nrepl-timeout= setting option. The value
  733. is in seconds and if set to =nil= then no timeout will occur.
  734. **** Clojure: new header ~:show-process~
  735. A new block code header has been created for Org Babel that enables
  736. developers to output the process of an ongoing process into a new
  737. window/buffer.
  738. You can tell Org Babel to output the process of a running code block.
  739. To show that output you only have to specify the =:show-process=
  740. option in the code block's header like this:
  741. #+begin_example
  742. ,#+BEGIN_SRC clojure :results output :show-process t
  743. (dotimes [n 10]
  744. (println n ".")
  745. (Thread/sleep 500))
  746. ,#+END_SRC
  747. #+end_example
  748. If =:show-process= is specified that way, then when you will run the
  749. code using =C-c C-c= a new window will open in Emacs. Everything that
  750. is output by the REPL will immediately be added to that new window.
  751. When the processing of the code is finished, then the window and its
  752. buffer will be closed and the results will be reported in the
  753. =#+RESULTS= section.
  754. Note that the =:results= parameter's behavior is *not* changed. If
  755. =silent= is specified, then no result will be displayed. If =output=
  756. is specified then all the output from the window will appears in the
  757. results section. If =value= is specified, then only the last returned
  758. value of the code will be displayed in the results section.
  759. **** Maxima: new headers ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~
  760. Babel options ~:prologue~ and ~:epilogue~ have been implemented for
  761. Maxima source blocks which prepend and append, respectively, the given
  762. code strings. This can be useful for specifying formatting settings
  763. which would add clutter to exported code. For instance, you can use
  764. this ~:prologue "fpprintprec: 2; linel: 50;"~ for presenting Maxima
  765. results in a beamer presentation.
  766. **** PlantUML: add support for header arguments
  767. [[http://plantuml.com/][Plantuml]] source blocks now support the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/prologue.html#prologue][~:prologue~]], [[https://orgmode.org/manual/epilogue.html#epilogue][~:epilogue~]] and
  768. [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] header arguments.
  769. **** SQL: new engine added ~sqsh~
  770. A new engine was added to support ~sqsh~ command line utility for use
  771. against Microsoft SQL Server or Sybase SQL server.
  772. More information on ~sqsh~ can be found here: [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/sqsh/][sourceforge/sqsh]]
  773. To use ~sqsh~ in an *sql* =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  774. #+begin_example
  775. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine sqsh :dbhost my_host :dbuser master :dbpassword pass :database support
  776. Select * From Users
  777. Where clue > 0
  778. ,#+END_SRC
  779. #+end_example
  780. **** SQL: new engine added =vertica=
  781. A new engine was added to support vsql command line utility for use
  782. against HP Vertica.
  783. More information on =vsql= can be found here: [[https://my.vertica.com/docs/7.2.x/HTML/index.htm#Authoring/ConnectingToHPVertica/vsql/UsingVsql.htm][my.vertica.com]]
  784. To use =vertica= in an sql =SRC_BLK= set the =:engine= like this:
  785. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  786. ,#+BEGIN_SRC sql :engine vertica :dbhost my_host :dbuser dbadmin :dbpassword pw :database vmart
  787. SELECT * FROM nodes;
  788. ,#+END_SRC
  789. #+END_EXAMPLE
  790. **** C++: New header ~:namespaces~
  791. The new ~:namespaces~ export option can be used to specify namespaces
  792. to be used within a C++ org source block. Its usage is similar to
  793. ~:includes~, in that it can accept multiple, space-separated
  794. namespaces to use. This header is equivalent to adding ~using
  795. namespace <name>;~ in the source block. Here is a "Hello World" in C++
  796. using ~:namespaces~:
  797. #+begin_example
  798. ,#+BEGIN_SRC C++ :results output :namespaces std :includes <iostream>
  799. cout << "Hello World" << endl;
  800. ,#+END_SRC
  801. #+end_example
  802. **** Support for Vala language
  803. [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Vala][Vala]] language blocks support two special header arguments:
  804. - ~:flags~ passes arguments to the compiler
  805. - ~:cmdline~ passes commandline arguments to the generated executable
  806. Support for [[https://orgmode.org/manual/var.html#var][~:var~]] does not exist yet, also there is no [[https://orgmode.org/manual/session.html#session][~:session~]]
  807. support because Vala is a compiled language.
  808. The Vala compiler binary can be changed via the ~defcustom~
  809. ~org-babel-vala-compiler~.
  810. *** New ~function~ scope argument for the Clock Table
  811. Added a nullary function that returns a list of files as a possible
  812. argument for the scope of the clock table.
  813. *** Export
  814. **** Implement vernacular table of contents in Markdown exporter
  815. Global table of contents are generated using vanilla Markdown syntax
  816. instead of HTML. Also #+TOC keyword, including local table of
  817. contents, are now supported.
  818. **** Add Slovenian translations
  819. **** Implement ~org-export-insert-image-links~
  820. This new function is meant to be used in back-ends supporting images
  821. as descriptions of links, a.k.a. image links. See its docstring for
  822. details.
  823. **** New macro : ~{{{n}}}~
  824. This macro creates and increment multiple counters in a document. See
  825. manual for details.
  826. **** Add global macros through ~org-export-global-macros~
  827. With this variable, one can define macros available for all documents.
  828. **** New keyword ~#+EXPORT_FILE_NAME~
  829. Similarly to ~:EXPORT_FILE_NAME:~ property, this keyword allows the
  830. user to specify the name of the output file upon exporting the
  831. document. This also has an effect on publishing.
  832. **** Horizontal rules are no longer ignored in LaTeX table math mode
  833. **** Use ~compilation-mode~ for compilation output
  834. **** Plain lists accept a new ~:separator~ attribute in Texinfo
  835. The new ~:separator~ attribute splits a tag from a description list
  836. item into multiple parts. This allows to have two-column tables with
  837. multiple entries in the first column. See manual for more details.
  838. **** ~latex-environment~ elements support ~caption~ keywords for LaTeX export
  839. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit LaTeX environments
  840. Using ~C-c '~ on a LaTeX environment opens a sub-editing buffer. By
  841. default, major mode in that buffer is ~latex-mode~, but it can be
  842. changed by configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~.
  843. *** ~org-list-to-generic~ includes a new property: ~:ifmt~
  844. ~:ifmt~ is a function to be called on the body of each item. See
  845. ~org-list-to-generic~ documentation for details.
  846. *** New variable : ~org-bibtex-headline-format-function~
  847. This allow to use a different title than entry title.
  848. *** ~org-attach~ supports attaching files from URLs
  849. Using ~C-c C-a u~ prompts for a URL pointing to a file to be attached
  850. to the document.
  851. *** New option for ~org-refile-use-outline-path~
  852. ~org-refile-use-outline-path~ now supports the setting ~buffer-name~,
  853. which causes refile targets to be prefixed with the buffer’s
  854. name. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with
  855. ~uniquify.el~.
  856. *** ~org-file-contents~ now allows the FILE argument to be a URL.
  857. This allows ~#+SETUPFILE:~ to accept a URL instead of a local file
  858. path. The URL contents are auto-downloaded and saved to a temporary
  859. cache ~org--file-cache~. A new optional argument ~NOCACHE~ is added
  860. to ~org-file-contents~.
  861. *** ~org-mode-restart~ now resets the newly added ~org--file-cache~.
  862. Using ~C-c C-c~ on any keyword (like ~#+SETUPFILE~) will reset the
  863. that file cache.
  864. *** New option : ~org-table-duration-hour-zero-padding~
  865. This variable allow computed durations in tables to be zero-padded.
  866. *** New mode switch for table formulas : =U=
  867. This mode omits seconds in durations.
  868. ** Removed functions
  869. *** Org Timeline
  870. This feature has been removed. Use a custom agenda view, possibly
  871. narrowed to current buffer to achieve a similar functionality.
  872. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  873. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  874. *** ~org-agenda-skip-subtree-when-regexp-matches~ is obsolete
  875. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  876. *** ~org-agenda-skip-entry-when-regexp-matches-in-subtree~ is obsolete
  877. Use ~org-agenda-skip-if~ instead.
  878. *** ~org-minutes-to-clocksum-string~ is obsolete
  879. Use ~org-duration-from-minutes~ instead.
  880. *** ~org-hh:mm-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  881. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  882. *** ~org-duration-string-to-minutes~ is obsolete
  883. Use ~org-duration-to-minutes~ instead.
  884. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-cached-article-number~ is removed.
  885. This function relied on ~nnimap-group-overview-filename~, which was
  886. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  887. ** Removed options
  888. *** ~org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all~ is removed.
  889. For an equivalent to a ~nil~ value, set
  890. ~org-agenda-show-future-repeats~ to nil and
  891. ~org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat~ to ~t~.
  892. *** ~org-gnus-nnimap-query-article-no-from-file~ is removed.
  893. This variable has no effect, as it was relying on a function that was
  894. removed from Gnus circa September 2010.
  895. *** ~org-usenet-links-prefer-google~ is obsolete.
  896. Use ~org-gnus-prefer-web-links~ instead.
  897. *** ~org-publish-sitemap-file-entry-format~ is deprecated
  898. One can provide new ~:sitemap-format-entry~ property for a function
  899. equivalent to the removed format string.
  900. *** ~org-enable-table-editor~ is removed.
  901. Setting it to a ~nil~ value broke some other features (e.g., speed
  902. keys).
  903. *** ~org-export-use-babel~ cannot be set to ~inline-only~
  904. The variable is now a boolean.
  905. *** ~org-texinfo-def-table-markup~ is obsolete
  906. Use ~org-texinfo-table-default-markup~ instead.
  907. ** New functions
  908. *** ~org-publish-find-property~
  909. This function can be used as a tool to format entries in a site-map,
  910. in addition to ~org-publish-find-title~ and ~org-publish-find-date~.
  911. *** ~org-list-to-org~
  912. It is the reciprocal of ~org-list-to-lisp~, which see.
  913. *** ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock-from-agenda~
  914. Call ~org-agenda-set-restriction-lock~ from the agenda.
  915. ** Miscellaneous
  916. *** The Library of Babel now on Worg
  917. The library-of-babel.org used to be accessible from the =doc/=
  918. directory, distributed with Org’s core. It is now accessible
  919. from the Worg community-driven documentation [[https://orgmode.org/worg/library-of-babel.html][here]].
  920. If you want to contribute to it, please see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contribute.html][how to contribute]].
  921. *** Allow multiple columns view
  922. Columns view is not limited to a single buffer anymore.
  923. *** Org Attach obeys ~dired-dwim-target~
  924. When a Dired buffer is opened next to the Org document being edited,
  925. the prompt for file to attach can start in the Dired buffer's
  926. directory if `dired-dwim-target' in non-nil.
  927. *** ~org-fill-paragraph~ can now fill a whole region
  928. *** More specific anniversary descriptions
  929. Anniversary descriptions (used in the agenda view, for instance)
  930. include the point in time, when the anniversary appears. This is,
  931. in its most general form, just the date of the anniversary. Or
  932. more specific terms, like "today", "tomorrow" or "in n days" are
  933. used to describe the time span.
  934. This feature allows to automatically change the description of an
  935. anniversary, depending on if it occurs in the next few days or
  936. far away in the future.
  937. *** Computed dates in tables appear as inactive time stamps
  938. *** Save point before opening a file with an unknown search option
  939. When following a file link with a search option (e.g., =::#custom-id=)
  940. that doesn't exist in the target file, save position before raising an
  941. error. As a consequence, it is possible to jump back to the original
  942. document with ~org-mark-ring-goto~ (default binding =C-c &=).
  943. *** ~org-get-heading~ accepts two more optional arguments
  944. See docstring for details.
  945. *** New option ~org-babel-uppercase-example-markers~
  946. This variable is a ~defcustom~ and replaces the variable
  947. ~org-babel-capitalize-example-region-markers~, which is a ~defvar~ and
  948. is now obsolete.
  949. *** =INCLUDE= keywords in commented trees are now ignored.
  950. *** Default value for ~org-texinfo-text-markup-alist~ changed.
  951. Now ~=...=~ markup uses ~@samp{}~ instead of ~@verb{}~. You can use
  952. ~@verb{}~ again by customizing the variable.
  953. *** Texinfo exports example blocks as ~@example~
  954. *** Texinfo exports inline source blocks as ~@code{}~
  955. *** Texinfo default table markup is ~@asis~
  956. It used to be ~@samp~ but ~@asis~ is neutral and, therefore, more
  957. suitable as a default value.
  958. *** Texinfo default process includes ~--no-split~ option
  959. *** New entities : ~\dollar~ and ~\USD~
  960. *** Support for date style URLs in =org-protocol://open-source=
  961. URLs like =https://cool-blog.com/2017/05/20/cool-post/= are
  962. covered by rewrite rules.
  963. *** Add (C) =COMMENT= support to ~org-structure-template-alist~
  964. * Version 9.0
  965. ** Incompatible changes
  966. *** Emacs 23 support has been dropped
  967. From now on, Org expects at least Emacs 24.3, although Emacs 24.4 or
  968. above is suggested.
  969. *** XEmacs support has been dropped
  970. Incomplete compatibility layer with XEmacs has been removed. If you
  971. want to take over maintenance of this compatibility, please contact
  972. our mailing list.
  973. *** New syntax for export blocks
  974. Export blocks are explicitly marked as such at the syntax level to
  975. disambiguate their parsing from special blocks. The new syntax is
  976. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  977. ,#+BEGIN_EXPORT backend
  978. ...
  979. ,#+END_EXPORT
  980. #+END_SRC
  981. instead of
  982. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  983. ,#+BEGIN_backend
  984. ...
  985. ,#+END_backend
  986. #+END_SRC
  987. As a consequence, =INCLUDE= keywords syntax is modified, e.g.,
  988. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  989. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" HTML
  990. #+END_SRC
  991. becomes
  992. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  993. ,#+INCLUDE: "file.org" export html
  994. #+END_SRC
  995. The following function repairs export blocks and =INCLUDE= keywords
  996. using previous syntax:
  997. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  998. (defun org-repair-export-blocks ()
  999. "Repair export blocks and INCLUDE keywords in current buffer."
  1000. (interactive)
  1001. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1002. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1003. (back-end-re (regexp-opt
  1004. '("HTML" "ASCII" "LATEX" "ODT" "MARKDOWN" "MD" "ORG"
  1005. "MAN" "BEAMER" "TEXINFO" "GROFF" "KOMA-LETTER")
  1006. t)))
  1007. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1008. (goto-char (point-min))
  1009. (let ((block-re (concat "^[ \t]*#\\+BEGIN_" back-end-re)))
  1010. (save-excursion

  1012. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1013. (when (eq (org-element-type element) 'special-block)
  1014. (save-excursion
  1015. (goto-char (org-element-property :end element))
  1016. (save-match-data (search-backward "_"))
  1017. (forward-char)
  1018. (insert "EXPORT")
  1019. (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))
  1020. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1))))))
  1021. (let ((include-re
  1022. (format "^[ \t]*#\\+INCLUDE: .*?%s[ \t]*$" back-end-re)))
  1023. (while (re-search-forward include-re nil t)
  1024. (let ((element (save-match-data (org-element-at-point))))
  1025. (when (and (eq (org-element-type element) 'keyword)
  1026. (string= (org-element-property :key element) "INCLUDE"))
  1027. (replace-match "EXPORT \\1" nil nil nil 1)))))))))
  1028. #+END_SRC
  1029. Moreover, ~:export-block~ keyword used in ~org-export-define-backend~ and
  1030. ~org-export-define-derived-backend~ is no longer used and needs to be
  1031. removed.
  1032. *** Footnotes
  1033. **** [1]-like constructs are not valid footnotes
  1034. Using =[1]= as a footnote was already discouraged in the manual, since
  1035. it introduced too many false-positives in many Org documents. These
  1036. constructs are now unsupported.
  1037. If you used =[N]= in some of your documents, consider turning them into
  1038. =[fn:N]=.
  1039. **** /Org Footnote/ library doesn't handle non-Org buffers
  1040. Commands for footnotes in an Org document no longer try to do
  1041. something in non-Org ones. If you need to have footnotes there,
  1042. consider using the =footnote.el= library, shipped with Emacs.
  1043. In particular, ~org-footnote-tag-for-non-org-mode-files~ no longer
  1044. exists.
  1045. *** ~org-file-apps~ no longer accepts S-expressions as commands
  1046. The variable now accepts functions of two arguments instead of plain
  1047. S-expressions. Replacing an S-expression with an appropriate function
  1048. is straightforward. For example
  1049. : ("pdf" . (foo))
  1050. becomes
  1051. : ("pdf" . (lambda (file link) (foo)))
  1052. *** The ~{{{modification-time}}}~ macro can get time via =vc=
  1053. The modification time will be determined via =vc.el= if the second
  1054. argument is non-nil. See the manual for details.
  1055. *** Preparation and completion functions in publishing projects change signature
  1056. Preparation and completion functions are now called with an argument,
  1057. which is the project property list. It used to be dynamically scoped
  1058. through the ~project-plist~ variable.
  1059. *** Old Babel header properties are no longer supported
  1060. Using header arguments as property names is no longer possible. As
  1061. such, the following
  1062. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1063. ,* Headline
  1064. :PROPERTIES:
  1065. :exports: code
  1066. :var: a=1 b=2
  1067. :var+: c=3
  1068. :END:
  1069. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1070. should be written instead
  1071. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1072. ,* Headline
  1073. :PROPERTIES:
  1074. :header-args: :exports code
  1075. :header-args+: :var a=1 b=2
  1076. :header-args+: :var c=3
  1077. :END:
  1078. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1079. Please note that, however, old properties were defined at the source
  1080. block definition. Current ones are defined where the block is called.
  1081. ** New features
  1082. *** ~org-eww~ has been moved into core
  1083. *** New org-protocol key=value syntax
  1084. Org-protocol can now handle query-style parameters such as:
  1085. #+begin_example
  1086. org-protocol://store-link?url=http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html&title=The%20title
  1087. org-protocol://capture?template=x&title=Hello&body=World&url=http:%2F%2Fexample.com
  1088. #+end_example
  1089. Old-style links such as
  1090. : org-protocol://store-link:/http:%2F%2Flocalhost%2Findex.html/The%20title
  1091. continue to be supported.
  1092. If you have defined your own handler functions for
  1093. ~org-protocol-protocol-alist~, change them to accept either a property
  1094. list (for new-style links) or a string (for old-style links). Use
  1095. ~org-protocol-parse-parameters~ to convert old-style links into property
  1096. lists.
  1097. *** New Org linter library
  1098. ~org-lint~ can check syntax and report common issues in Org documents.
  1099. *** New option ~date-tree-last~ for ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~
  1100. When ~org-agenda-insert-diary-strategy~ is set to ~date-tree-last~, diary
  1101. entries are added to last in the date tree.
  1102. *** New ~vbar~ entity
  1103. ~\vbar~ or ~\vbar{}~ will be exported unconditionally as a =|=,
  1104. unlike to existing ~\vert~, which is expanded as ~&vert;~ when using
  1105. a HTML derived export back-end.
  1106. *** Export
  1107. **** New =#+latex_compiler= keyword to set LaTeX compiler.
  1108. PDFLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and LuaLaTeX are supported. See the manual for
  1109. details.
  1110. **** New option ~org-export-with-broken-links~
  1111. This option tells the export process how to behave when encountering
  1112. a broken internal link. See its docstring for more information.
  1113. **** Attributes support in custom language environments for LaTeX export
  1114. Custom language environments for LaTeX export can now define the
  1115. string to be inserted during export, using attributes to indicate the
  1116. position of the elements. See variable ~org-latex-custom-lang-environments~
  1117. for more details.
  1118. **** New Texinfo ~options~ attribute on special blocks
  1119. Using ~:options~ as a Texinfo attribute, it is possible to add
  1120. information to custom environments. See manual for details.
  1121. **** New HTML ~id~ attributes on special, example and quote blocks
  1122. If the block has a =#+NAME:= attribute assigned, then the HTML element
  1123. will have an ~id~ attribute with that name in the HTML export. This
  1124. enables one to create links to these elements in other places, e.g.,
  1125. ~<a href="#name">text</a>~.
  1126. **** Listings with captions are now numbered in HTML export
  1127. The class associated to the numbering is "listing-number". If you
  1128. don't want these blocks to be numbered, as it was the case until now,
  1129. You may want to add ~.listing-number { display: none; }~ to the CSS
  1130. used.
  1131. **** Line Numbering in SRC/EXAMPLE blocks support arbitrary start number
  1132. The ~-n~ option to ~SRC~ and ~EXAMPLE~ blocks can now take a numeric
  1133. argument to specify the staring line number for the source or example
  1134. block. The ~+n~ option can now take a numeric argument that will be
  1135. added to the last line number from the previous block as the starting
  1136. point for the SRC/EXAMPLE block.
  1137. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1138. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp -n 20
  1139. ;; this will export with line number 20
  1140. (message "This is line 21")
  1141. ,#+END_SRC
  1142. ,#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp +n 10
  1143. ;; This will be listed as line 31
  1144. (message "This is line 32")
  1145. ,#+END_SRC
  1146. #+END_SRC
  1147. **** Allow toggling center for images in LaTeX export
  1148. With the global variable ~org-latex-images-centered~ or the local
  1149. attribute ~:center~ it is now possible to center an image in LaTeX
  1150. export.
  1151. **** Default CSS class ~org-svg~ for SVG images in HTML export
  1152. SVG images exported in HTML are now by default assigned a CSS class
  1153. ~org-svg~ if no CSS class is specified with the ~:class~ attribute. By
  1154. default, the CSS styling of class ~org-svg~ specifies an image width of
  1155. 90\thinsp{}% of the container the image.
  1156. **** Markdown footnote export customization
  1157. Variables ~org-md-footnotes-section~ and ~org-md-footnote-format~
  1158. introduced for =ox-md.el=. Both new variables define template strings
  1159. which can be used to customize the format of the exported footnotes
  1160. section and individual footnotes, respectively.
  1161. *** Babel
  1162. **** Blocks with coderefs labels can now be evaluated
  1163. The labels are removed prior to evaluating the block.
  1164. **** Support for Lua language
  1165. **** Support for SLY in Lisp blocks
  1166. See ~org-babel-lisp-eval-fn~ to activate it.
  1167. **** Support for Stan language
  1168. New ob-stan.el library.
  1169. Evaluating a Stan block can produce two different results.
  1170. 1. Dump the source code contents to a file.
  1171. This file can then be used as a variable in other blocks, which
  1172. allows interfaces like RStan to use the model.
  1173. 2. Compile the contents to a model file.
  1174. This provides access to the CmdStan interface. To use this, set
  1175. ~org-babel-stan-cmdstan-directory~ and provide a ~:file~ argument
  1176. that does not end in ".stan".
  1177. For more information and usage examples, visit
  1178. https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-stan.html
  1179. **** Support for Oracle databases via ~sqlplus~
  1180. =ob-sql= library supports running SQL blocks against an Oracle
  1181. database using ~sqlplus~. Use with properties like this (all
  1182. mandatory):
  1183. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1184. :engine oracle
  1185. :dbhost <host.com>
  1186. :dbport <1521>
  1187. :dbuser <username>
  1188. :database <database>
  1189. :dbpassword <secret>
  1190. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1191. **** Improved support to Microsoft SQL Server via ~sqlcmd~
  1192. =ob-sql= library removes support to the ~msosql~ engine which uses the
  1193. deprecated ~osql~ command line tool, and replaces it with ~mssql~
  1194. engine which uses the ~sqlcmd~ command line tool. Use with properties
  1195. like this:
  1196. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1197. :engine mssql
  1198. :dbhost <host.com>
  1199. :dbuser <username>
  1200. :dbpassword <secret>
  1201. :database <database>
  1202. #+END_EXAMPLE
  1203. If you want to use the *trusted connection* feature, omit *both* the
  1204. =dbuser= and =dbpassword= properties and add =cmdline -E= to the properties.
  1205. If your Emacs is running in a Cygwin environment, the =ob-sql= library
  1206. can pass the converted path to the =sqlcmd= tool.
  1207. **** Improved support of header arguments for postgresql
  1208. The postgresql engine in a sql code block supports now ~:dbport~ nd
  1209. ~:dbpassword~ as header arguments.
  1210. **** Support for additional plantuml output formats
  1211. The support for output formats of [[http://plantuml.com/][plantuml]] has been extended to now
  1212. include:
  1213. All Diagrams:
  1214. - png ::
  1215. - svg ::
  1216. - eps ::
  1217. - pdf ::
  1218. - vdx ::
  1219. - txt :: ASCII art
  1220. - utxt :: ASCII art using unicode characters
  1221. Class Diagrams:
  1222. - xmi ::
  1223. - html ::
  1224. State Diagrams:
  1225. - scxml ::
  1226. The output formats are determined by the file extension specified
  1227. using the :file property, e.g.:
  1228. #+begin_src plantuml :file diagram.png
  1229. @startuml
  1230. Alice -> Bob: Authentication Request
  1231. Bob --> Alice: Authentication Response
  1232. Alice -> Bob: Another authentication Request
  1233. Alice <-- Bob: another authentication Response
  1234. @enduml
  1235. #+end_src
  1236. Please note that *pdf* *does not work out of the box* and needs additional
  1237. setup in addition to plantuml. See [[http://plantuml.com/pdf.html]] for
  1238. details and setup information.
  1239. *** Rewrite of radio lists
  1240. Radio lists, i.e, Org plain lists in foreign buffers, have been
  1241. rewritten to be on par with Radio tables. You can use a large set of
  1242. parameters to control how a given list should be rendered. See manual
  1243. for details.
  1244. *** org-bbdb-anniversaries-future
  1245. Used like ~org-bbdb-anniversaries~, it provides a few days warning for
  1246. upcoming anniversaries (default: 7 days).
  1247. *** Clear non-repeated SCHEDULED upon repeating a task
  1248. If the task is repeated, and therefore done at least one, scheduling
  1249. information is no longer relevant. It is therefore removed.
  1250. See [[git:481719fbd5751aaa9c672b762cb43aea8ee986b0][commit message]] for more information.
  1251. *** Support for ISO week trees
  1252. ISO week trees are an alternative date tree format that orders entries
  1253. by ISO week and not by month.
  1254. For example:
  1255. : * 2015
  1256. : ** 2015-W35
  1257. : ** 2015-W36
  1258. : *** 2015-08-31 Monday
  1259. They are supported in org-capture via ~file+weektree~ and
  1260. ~file+weektree+prompt~ target specifications.
  1261. *** Accept ~:indent~ parameter when capturing column view
  1262. When defining a "columnview" dynamic block, it is now possible to add
  1263. an :indent parameter, much like the one in the clock table.
  1264. On the other hand, stars no longer appear in an ITEM field.
  1265. *** Columns view
  1266. **** ~org-columns~ accepts a prefix argument
  1267. When called with a prefix argument, ~org-columns~ apply to the whole
  1268. buffer unconditionally.
  1269. **** New variable : ~org-agenda-view-columns-initially~
  1270. The variable used to be a ~defvar~, it is now a ~defcustom~.
  1271. **** Allow custom summaries
  1272. It is now possible to add new summary types, or override those
  1273. provided by Org by customizing ~org-columns-summary-types~, which see.
  1274. **** Allow multiple summaries for any property
  1275. Columns can now summarize the same property using different summary
  1276. types.
  1277. *** Preview LaTeX snippets in buffers not visiting files
  1278. *** New option ~org-attach-commit~
  1279. When non-nil, commit attachments with git, assuming the document is in
  1280. a git repository.
  1281. *** Allow conditional case-fold searches in ~org-occur~
  1282. When set to ~smart~, the new variable ~org-occur-case-fold-search~ allows
  1283. to mimic =isearch.el=: if the regexp searched contains any upper case
  1284. character (or character class), the search is case sensitive.
  1285. Otherwise, it is case insensitive.
  1286. *** More robust repeated =ox-latex= footnote handling
  1287. Repeated footnotes are now numbered by referring to a label in the
  1288. first footnote.
  1289. *** The ~org-block~ face is inherited by ~src-blocks~
  1290. This works also when =org-src-fontify-natively= is non-nil. It is also
  1291. possible to specify per-languages faces. See =org-src-block-faces= and
  1292. the manual for details.
  1293. *** Links are now customizable
  1294. Links can now have custom colors, tooltips, keymaps, display behavior,
  1295. etc. Links are now centralized in ~org-link-parameters~.
  1296. ** New functions
  1297. *** ~org-next-line-empty-p~
  1298. It replaces the deprecated ~next~ argument to ~org-previous-line-empty-p~.
  1299. *** ~org-show-children~
  1300. It is a faster implementation of ~outline-show-children~.
  1301. ** Removed functions
  1302. *** ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag-refine~ has been removed.
  1303. Use ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~ instead.
  1304. *** ~org-agenda-todayp~ is deprecated.
  1305. Use ~org-agenda-today-p~ instead.
  1306. *** ~org-babel-get-header~ is removed.
  1307. Use ~org-babel--get-vars~ or ~assq~ instead, as applicable.
  1308. *** ~org-babel-trim~ is deprecated.
  1309. Use ~org-trim~ instead.
  1310. *** ~org-element-remove-indentation~ is deprecated.
  1311. Use ~org-remove-indentation~ instead.
  1312. *** ~org-image-file-name-regexp~ is deprecated
  1313. Use ~image-file-name-regexp~ instead.
  1314. The never-used-in-core ~extensions~ argument has been dropped.
  1315. *** ~org-list-parse-list~ is deprecated
  1316. Use ~org-list-to-lisp~ instead.
  1317. *** ~org-on-heading-p~ is deprecated
  1318. A comment to this effect was in the source code since 7.8.03, but
  1319. now a byte-compiler warning will be generated as well.
  1320. *** ~org-table-p~ is deprecated
  1321. Use ~org-at-table-p~ instead.
  1322. *** ~org-table-recognize-table.el~ is deprecated
  1323. It was not called by any org code since 2010.
  1324. *** Various reimplementations of cl-lib functions are deprecated
  1325. The affected functions are:
  1326. - ~org-count~
  1327. - ~org-remove-if~
  1328. - ~org-remove-if-not~
  1329. - ~org-reduce~
  1330. - ~org-every~
  1331. - ~org-some~
  1332. Additionally, ~org-sublist~ is deprecated in favor of ~cl-subseq~. Note
  1333. the differences in indexing conventions: ~org-sublist~ is 1-based and
  1334. end-inclusive; ~cl-subseq~ is 0-based and end-exclusive.
  1335. ** Removed options
  1336. *** Remove all options related to ~ido~ or ~iswitchb~
  1337. This includes ~org-completion-use-iswitchb~ and ~org-completion-use-ido~.
  1338. Instead Org uses regular functions, e.g., ~completion-read~ so as to
  1339. let those libraries operate.
  1340. *** Remove ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~
  1341. Two consecutive blank lines always terminate all levels of current
  1342. plain list.
  1343. *** ~fixltx2e~ is removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1344. fixltx2e is obsolete, see LaTeX News 22.
  1345. ** Miscellaneous
  1346. *** Add Icelandic smart quotes
  1347. *** Allow multiple receiver locations in radio tables and lists
  1348. *** Allow angular links within link descriptions
  1349. It is now allowed to write, e.g.,
  1350. ~[[http:orgmode.org][<file:unicorn.png>]]~ as an equivalent to
  1351. ~[[http:orgmode.org][file:unicorn.png]]~. The advantage of the former
  1352. is that spaces are allowed within the path.
  1353. *** Beamer export back-ends uses ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1354. *** ~:preparation-function~ called earlier during publishing
  1355. Functions in this list are called before any file is associated to the
  1356. current project. Thus, they can be used to generate to be published
  1357. Org files.
  1358. *** Function ~org-remove-indentation~ changes.
  1359. The new algorithm doesn't remove TAB characters not used for
  1360. indentation.
  1361. *** Secure placeholders in capture templates
  1362. Placeholders in capture templates are no longer expanded recursively.
  1363. However, ~%(...)~ constructs are expanded very late, so you can fill
  1364. the contents of the S-exp with the replacement text of non-interactive
  1365. placeholders. As before, interactive ones are still expanded as the
  1366. very last step, so the previous statement doesn't apply to them.
  1367. Note that only ~%(...)~ placeholders initially present in the
  1368. template, or introduced using a file placeholder, i.e., ~%[...]~ are
  1369. expanded. This prevents evaluating potentially malicious code when
  1370. another placeholder, e.g., ~%i~ expands to a S-exp.
  1371. *** Links stored by ~org-gnus-store-link~ in nnir groups
  1372. Since gnus nnir groups are temporary, ~org-gnus-store-link~ now refers
  1373. to the article's original group.
  1374. *** ~org-babel-check-confirm-evaluate~ is now a function instead of a macro
  1375. The calling convention has changed.
  1376. *** HTML export table row customization changes
  1377. Variable ~org-html-table-row-tags~ has been split into
  1378. ~org-html-table-row-open-tag~ and ~org-html-table-row-close-tag~.
  1379. Both new variables can be either a string or a function which will be
  1380. called with 6 parameters.
  1381. *** =ITEM= special property returns headline without stars
  1382. *** Rename ~org-insert-columns-dblock~ into ~org-columns-insert-dblock~
  1383. The previous name is, for the time being, kept as an obsolete alias.
  1384. *** ~org-trim~ can preserve leading indentation.
  1385. When setting a new optional argument to a non-nil value, ~org-trim~
  1386. preserves leading indentation while removing blank lines at the
  1387. beginning of the string. The behavior is identical for white space at
  1388. the end of the string.
  1389. *** Function ~org-info-export~ changes.
  1390. HTML links created from certain info links now point to =gnu.org= URL's rather
  1391. than just to local files. For example info links such as =info:emacs#List
  1392. Buffers= used to be converted to HTML links like this:
  1393. : <a href="emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1394. where local file =emacs.html= is referenced.
  1395. For most folks this file does not exist.
  1396. Thus the new behavior is to generate this HTML link instead:
  1397. : <a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/emacs.html#List-Buffers">emacs#List Buffers</a>
  1398. All emacs related info links are similarly translated plus few other
  1399. =gnu.org= manuals.
  1400. *** Repeaters with a ~++~ interval and a time can be shifted to later today
  1401. Previously, if a recurring task had a timestamp of
  1402. ~<2016-01-01 Fri 20:00 ++1d>~ and was completed on =2016-01-02= at
  1403. =08:00=, the task would skip =2016-01-02= and would be rescheduled for
  1404. =2016-01-03=. Timestamps with ~++~ cookies and a specific time will
  1405. now shift to the first possible future occurrence, even if the
  1406. occurrence is later the same day the task is completed. (Timestamps
  1407. already in the future are still shifted one time further into the
  1408. future.)
  1409. *** ~org-mobile-action-alist~ is now a defconst
  1410. It used to be a defcustom, with a warning that it shouldn't be
  1411. modified anyway.
  1412. *** ~file+emacs~ and ~file+sys~ link types are deprecated
  1413. They are still supported in Org 9.0 but will eventually be removed in
  1414. a later release. Use ~file~ link type along with universal arguments
  1415. to force opening it in either Emacs or with system application.
  1416. *** New defcustom ~org-babel-J-command~ stores the j command
  1417. *** New defalias ~org-babel-execute:j~
  1418. Allows J source blocks be indicated by letter j. Previously the
  1419. indication letter was solely J.
  1420. *** ~org-open-line~ ignores tables at the very beginning of the buffer
  1421. When ~org-special-ctrl-o~ is non-nil, it is impractical to create
  1422. a blank line above a table at the beginning of the document. Now, as
  1423. a special case, ~org-open-line~ behaves normally in this situation.
  1424. *** ~org-babel-hash-show-time~ is now customizable
  1425. The experimental variable used to be more or less confidential, as
  1426. a ~defvar~.
  1427. *** New ~:format~ property to parsed links
  1428. It defines the format of the original link. Possible values are:
  1429. ~plain~, ~bracket~ and ~angle~.
  1430. * Version 8.3
  1431. ** Incompatible changes
  1432. *** Properties drawers syntax changes
  1433. Properties drawers are now required to be located right after a
  1434. headline and its planning line, when applicable.
  1435. It will break some documents as TODO states changes were sometimes
  1436. logged before the property drawer.
  1437. The following function will repair them:
  1438. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  1439. (defun org-repair-property-drawers ()
  1440. "Fix properties drawers in current buffer.
  1441. Ignore non Org buffers."
  1442. (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
  1443. (org-with-wide-buffer
  1444. (goto-char (point-min))
  1445. (let ((case-fold-search t)
  1446. (inline-re (and (featurep 'org-inlinetask)
  1447. (concat (org-inlinetask-outline-regexp)
  1448. "END[ \t]*$"))))
  1449. (org-map-entries
  1450. (lambda ()
  1451. (unless (and inline-re (org-looking-at-p inline-re))
  1452. (save-excursion
  1453. (let ((end (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point))))
  1454. (forward-line)
  1455. (when (org-looking-at-p org-planning-line-re) (forward-line))
  1456. (when (and (< (point) end)
  1457. (not (org-looking-at-p org-property-drawer-re))
  1458. (save-excursion
  1459. (and (re-search-forward org-property-drawer-re end t)
  1460. (eq (org-element-type
  1461. (save-match-data (org-element-at-point)))
  1462. 'drawer))))
  1463. (insert (delete-and-extract-region
  1464. (match-beginning 0)
  1465. (min (1+ (match-end 0)) end)))
  1466. (unless (bolp) (insert "\n"))))))))))))
  1467. #+END_SRC
  1468. *** Using "COMMENT" is now equivalent to commenting with "#"
  1469. If you used "COMMENT" in headlines to prevent a subtree from being
  1470. exported, you can still do it but all information within the subtree
  1471. is now commented out, i.e. no #+OPTIONS line will be parsed or taken
  1472. into account when exporting.
  1473. If you want to exclude a headline from export while using its contents
  1474. for setting options, use =:noexport:= (see =org-export-exclude-tags=.)
  1475. *** =#+CATEGORY= keywords no longer apply partially to document
  1476. It was possible to use several such keywords and have them apply to
  1477. the text below until the next one, but strongly deprecated since Org
  1478. 5.14 (2008).
  1479. =#+CATEGORY= keywords are now global to the document. You can use node
  1480. properties to set category for a subtree, e.g.,
  1481. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1482. ,* Headline
  1483. :PROPERTIES:
  1484. :CATEGORY: some category
  1485. :END:
  1486. #+END_SRC
  1487. *** New variable to control visibility when revealing a location
  1488. ~org-show-following-heading~, ~org-show-siblings~, ~org-show-entry-below~
  1489. and ~org-show-hierarchy-above~ no longer exist. Instead, visibility is
  1490. controlled through a single variable: ~org-show-context-detail~, which
  1491. see.
  1492. *** Replace disputed keys again when reading a date
  1493. ~org-replace-disputed-keys~ has been ignored when reading date since
  1494. version 8.1, but the former behavior is restored again.
  1495. Keybinding for reading date can be customized with a new variable
  1496. ~org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map~.
  1497. *** No default title is provided when =TITLE= keyword is missing
  1498. Skipping =TITLE= keyword no longer provides the current file name, or
  1499. buffer name, as the title. Instead, simply ignore the title.
  1500. *** Default bindings of =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= changed
  1501. The key sequences =C-c C-n= and =C-c C-p= are now bound to
  1502. ~org-next-visible-heading~ and ~org-previous-visible-heading~
  1503. respectively, rather than the =outline-mode= versions of these
  1504. functions. The Org version of these functions skips over inline tasks
  1505. (and even-level headlines when ~org-odd-levels-only~ is set).
  1506. *** ~org-element-context~ no longer return objects in keywords
  1507. ~org-element-context~ used to return objects on some keywords, i.e.,
  1508. =TITLE=, =DATE= and =AUTHOR=. It now returns only the keyword.
  1509. *** ~org-timer-default-timer~ type changed from number to string
  1510. If you have, in your configuration, something like =(setq
  1511. org-timer-default-timer 10)= replace it with =(setq
  1512. org-timer-default-timer "10")=.
  1513. *** Functions signature changes
  1514. The following functions require an additional argument. See their
  1515. docstring for more information.
  1516. - ~org-export-collect-footnote-definitions~
  1517. - ~org-html-format-headline-function~
  1518. - ~org-html-format-inlinetask-function~
  1519. - ~org-latex-format-headline-function~
  1520. - ~org-latex-format-inlinetask-function~
  1521. - ~org-link-search~
  1522. ** New features
  1523. *** Default lexical evaluation of emacs-lisp source blocks
  1524. Emacs-lisp source blocks in Babel are now evaluated using lexical
  1525. scoping. There is a new header to control this behavior.
  1526. The default results in an eval with lexical scoping.
  1527. :lexical yes
  1528. This turns lexical scoping off in the eval (the former behavior).
  1529. :lexical no
  1530. This uses the lexical environment with x=42 in the eval.
  1531. :lexical '((x . 42))
  1532. *** Behavior of ~org-return~ changed
  1533. If point is before or after the headline title, insert a new line
  1534. without changing the headline.
  1535. *** Hierarchies of tags
  1536. The functionality of nesting tags in hierarchies is added to org-mode.
  1537. This is the generalization of what was previously called "Tag groups"
  1538. in the manual. That term is now changed to "Tag hierarchy".
  1539. The following in-buffer definition:
  1540. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1541. ,#+TAGS: [ Group : SubOne SubTwo ]
  1542. ,#+TAGS: [ SubOne : SubOne1 SubOne2 ]
  1543. ,#+TAGS: [ SubTwo : SubTwo1 SubTwo2 ]
  1544. #+END_SRC
  1545. Should be seen as the following tree of tags:
  1546. - Group
  1547. - SubOne
  1548. - SubOne1
  1549. - SubOne2
  1550. - SubTwo
  1551. - SubTwo1
  1552. - SubTwo2
  1553. Searching for "Group" should return all tags defined above. Filtering
  1554. on SubOne filters also it's sub-tags. Etc.
  1555. There is no limit on the depth for the tag hierarchy.
  1556. *** Additional syntax for non-unique grouptags
  1557. Additional syntax is defined for grouptags if the tags in the group
  1558. don't have to be distinct on a heading.
  1559. Grouptags had to previously be defined with { }. This syntax is
  1560. already used for exclusive tags and Grouptags need their own,
  1561. non-exclusive syntax. This behavior is achieved with [ ]. Note: { }
  1562. can still be used also for Grouptags but then only one of the given
  1563. tags can be used on the headline at the same time. Example:
  1564. [ group : sub1 sub2 ]
  1565. #+BEGIN_SRC org
  1566. ,* Test :sub1:sub2:
  1567. #+END_SRC
  1568. This is a more general case than the already existing syntax for
  1569. grouptags; { }.
  1570. *** Define regular expression patterns as tags
  1571. Tags can be defined as grouptags with regular expressions as
  1572. "sub-tags".
  1573. The regular expressions in the group must be marked up within { }.
  1574. Example use:
  1575. : #+TAGS: [ Project : {P@.+} ]
  1576. Searching for the tag Project will now list all tags also including
  1577. regular expression matches for P@.+. This is good for example for
  1578. projects tagged with a common identifier, i.e. P@2014_OrgTags.
  1579. *** Filtering in the agenda on grouptags (Tag hierarchies)
  1580. Filtering in the agenda on grouptags filters all of the related tags.
  1581. Except if a filter is applied with a (double) prefix-argument.
  1582. Filtering in the agenda on subcategories does not filter the "above"
  1583. levels anymore.
  1584. If a grouptag contains a regular expression the regular expression
  1585. is also used as a filter.
  1586. *** Minor refactoring of ~org-agenda-filter-by-tag~
  1587. Now uses the argument ARG and optional argument exclude instead of
  1588. strip and narrow. ARG because the argument has multiple purposes and
  1589. makes more sense than strip now. The term "narrowing" is changed to
  1590. exclude.
  1591. The main purpose is for the function to make more logical sense when
  1592. filtering on tags now when tags can be structured in hierarchies.
  1593. *** Babel: support for sed scripts
  1594. Thanks to Bjarte Johansen for this feature.
  1595. *** Babel: support for Processing language
  1596. New ob-processing.el library.
  1597. This library implements necessary functions for implementing editing
  1598. of Processing code blocks, viewing the resulting sketches in an
  1599. external viewer, and HTML export of the sketches.
  1600. Check the documentation for more details.
  1601. Thanks to Jarmo Hurri for this feature.
  1602. *** New behavior for ~org-toggle-latex-fragment~
  1603. The new behavior is the following:
  1604. - With a double prefix argument or with a single prefix argument when
  1605. point is before the first headline, toggle overlays in the whole
  1606. buffer;
  1607. - With a single prefix argument, toggle overlays in the current
  1608. subtree;
  1609. - On latex code, toggle overlay at point;
  1610. - Otherwise, toggle overlays in the current section.
  1611. *** Additional markup with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1612. The content of the included file can now be optionally marked up, for
  1613. instance as HTML. See the documentation for details.
  1614. *** File links with =#+INCLUDE= keyword
  1615. Objects can be extracted via =#+INCLUDE= using file links. It is
  1616. possible to include only the contents of the object. See manual for
  1617. more information.
  1618. *** Drawers do not need anymore to be referenced in =#+DRAWERS=
  1619. One can use a drawer without listing it in the =#+DRAWERS= keyword,
  1620. which is now obsolete. As a consequence, this change also deprecates
  1621. ~org-drawers~ variable.
  1622. *** ~org-edit-special~ can edit export blocks
  1623. Using C-c ' on an export block now opens a sub-editing buffer. Major
  1624. mode in that buffer is determined by export backend name (e.g.,
  1625. "latex" \to "latex-mode"). You can define exceptions to this rule by
  1626. configuring ~org-src-lang-modes~, which see.
  1627. *** Additional =:hline= processing to ob-shell
  1628. If the argument =:hlines yes= is present in a babel call, an optional
  1629. argument =:hlines-string= can be used to define a string to use as a
  1630. representation for the lisp symbol ='hline= in the shell program. The
  1631. default is =hline=.
  1632. *** Markdown export supports switches in source blocks
  1633. For example, it is now possible to number lines using the =-n= switch in
  1634. a source block.
  1635. *** New option in ASCII export
  1636. Plain lists can have an extra margin by setting ~org-ascii-list-margin~
  1637. variable to an appropriate integer.
  1638. *** New blocks in ASCII export
  1639. ASCII export now supports =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYRIGHT= and =#+BEGIN_JUSTIFYLEFT=
  1640. blocks. See documentation for details.
  1641. *** More back-end specific publishing options
  1642. The number of publishing options specific to each back-end has been
  1643. increased. See manual for details.
  1644. *** Export inline source blocks
  1645. Inline source code was used to be removed upon exporting. They are
  1646. now handled as standard code blocks, i.e., the source code can appear
  1647. in the output, depending on the parameters.
  1648. *** Extend ~org-export-first-sibling-p~ and ~org-export-last-sibling-p~
  1649. These functions now support any element or object, not only headlines.
  1650. *** New function: ~org-export-table-row-in-header-p~
  1651. *** New function: ~org-export-get-reference~
  1652. *** New function: ~org-element-lineage~
  1653. This function deprecates ~org-export-get-genealogy~. It also provides
  1654. more features. See docstring for details.
  1655. *** New function: ~org-element-copy~
  1656. *** New filter: ~org-export-filter-body-functions~
  1657. Functions in this filter are applied on the body of the exported
  1658. document, before wrapping it within the template.
  1659. *** New :environment parameter when exporting example blocks to LaTeX
  1660. : #+ATTR_LATEX: :environment myverbatim
  1661. : #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  1662. : This sentence is false.
  1663. : #+END_EXAMPLE
  1664. will be exported using =@samp(myverbatim)= instead of =@samp(verbatim)=.
  1665. *** Various improvements on radio tables
  1666. Radio tables feature now relies on Org's export framework ("ox.el").
  1667. ~:no-escape~ parameter no longer exists, but additional global
  1668. parameters are now supported: ~:raw~, ~:backend~. Moreover, there are new
  1669. parameters specific to some pre-defined translators, e.g.,
  1670. ~:environment~ and ~:booktabs~ for ~orgtbl-to-latex~. See translators
  1671. docstrings (including ~orgtbl-to-generic~) for details.
  1672. *** Non-floating minted listings in Latex export
  1673. It is not possible to specify =#+attr_latex: :float nil= in conjunction
  1674. with source blocks exported by the minted package.
  1675. *** Field formulas can now create columns as needed
  1676. Previously, evaluating formulas that referenced out-of-bounds columns
  1677. would throw an error. A new variable ~org-table-formula-create-columns~
  1678. was added to adjust this behavior. It is now possible to silently add
  1679. new columns, to do so with a warning or to explicitly ask the user
  1680. each time.
  1681. *** ASCII plot
  1682. Ability to plot values in a column through ASCII-art bars. See manual
  1683. for details.
  1684. *** New hook: ~org-archive-hook~
  1685. This hook is called after successfully archiving a subtree, with point
  1686. on the original subtree, not yet deleted.
  1687. *** New option: ~org-attach-archive-delete~
  1688. When non-nil, attachments from archived subtrees are removed.
  1689. *** New option: ~org-latex-caption-above~
  1690. This variable generalizes ~org-latex-table-caption-above~, which is now
  1691. deprecated. In addition to tables, it applies to source blocks,
  1692. special blocks and images. See docstring for more information.
  1693. *** New option: ~org-latex-prefer-user-labels~
  1694. See the docstring for more information.
  1695. *** Export unnumbered headlines
  1696. Headlines, for which the property ~UNNUMBERED~ is non-nil, are now
  1697. exported without section numbers irrespective of their levels. The
  1698. property is inherited by children.
  1699. *** Tables can be sorted with an arbitrary function
  1700. It is now possible to specify a function, both programmatically,
  1701. through a new optional argument, and interactively with ~f~ or ~F~ keys,
  1702. to sort a table.
  1703. *** Table of contents can be local to a section
  1704. The ~TOC~ keywords now accepts an optional ~local~ parameter. See manual
  1705. for details.
  1706. *** Countdown timers can now be paused
  1707. ~org-timer-pause-time~ now pauses and restarts both relative and
  1708. countdown timers.
  1709. *** New option ~only-window~ for ~org-agenda-window-setup~
  1710. When ~org-agenda-window-setup~ is set to ~only-window~, the agenda is
  1711. displayed as the sole window of the current frame.
  1712. *** ~{{{date}}}~ macro supports optional formatting argument
  1713. It is now possible to supply and optional formatting argument to
  1714. ~{{{date}}}~. See manual for details.
  1715. *** ~{{{property}}}~ macro supports optional search argument
  1716. It is now possible to supply an optional search option to
  1717. ~{{{property}}}~ in order to retrieve remote properties optional. See
  1718. manual for details.
  1719. *** New option ~org-export-with-title~
  1720. It is possible to suppress the title insertion with ~#+OPTIONS:
  1721. title:nil~ or globally using the variable ~org-export-with-title~.
  1722. *** New entities family: "\_ "
  1723. "\_ " are used to insert up to 20 contiguous spaces in various
  1724. back-ends. In particular, this family can be used to introduce
  1725. leading spaces within table cells.
  1726. *** New MathJax configuration options
  1727. Org uses the MathJax CDN by default. See the manual and the docstring
  1728. of ~org-html-mathjax-options~ for details.
  1729. *** New behavior in `org-export-options-alist'
  1730. When defining a back-end, it is now possible to specify to give
  1731. `parse' behavior on a keyword. It is equivalent to call
  1732. `org-element-parse-secondary-string' on the value.
  1733. However, parsed =KEYWORD= is automatically associated to an
  1734. =:EXPORT_KEYWORD:= property, which can be used to override the keyword
  1735. value during a subtree export. Moreover, macros are expanded in such
  1736. keywords and properties.
  1737. *** Viewport support in html export
  1738. Viewport for mobile-optimized website is now automatically inserted
  1739. when exporting to html. See ~org-html-viewport~ for details.
  1740. *** New ~#+SUBTITLE~ export keyword
  1741. Org can typeset a subtitle in some export backends. See the manual
  1742. for details.
  1743. *** Remotely edit a footnote definition
  1744. Calling ~org-edit-footnote-reference~ (C-c ') on a footnote reference
  1745. allows to edit its definition, as long as it is not anonymous, in a
  1746. dedicated buffer. It works even if buffer is currently narrowed.
  1747. *** New function ~org-delete-indentation~ bound to ~M-^~
  1748. Work as ~delete-indentation~ unless at heading, in which case text is
  1749. added to headline text.
  1750. *** Support for images in Texinfo export
  1751. ~Texinfo~ back-end now handles images. See the manual for details.
  1752. *** Support for captions in Texinfo export
  1753. Tables and source blocks can now have captions. Additionally, lists
  1754. of tables and lists of listings can be inserted in the document with
  1755. =#+TOC= keyword.
  1756. *** Countdown timer support hh:mm:ss format
  1757. In addition to setting countdown timers in minutes, they can also be
  1758. set using the hh:mm:ss format.
  1759. *** Extend ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~
  1760. ~org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift~ now accepts 0 as an argument for the
  1761. number of clones, which removes the repeater from the original subtree
  1762. and creates one shifted, repeating clone.
  1763. *** New time block for clock tables: ~untilnow~
  1764. It encompasses all past closed clocks.
  1765. *** Support for the ~polyglossia~ LaTeX package
  1766. See the docstring of ~org-latex-classes~ and
  1767. ~org-latex-guess-polyglossia-language~ for details.
  1768. *** None-floating tables, graphics and blocks can have captions
  1769. *** `org-insert-heading' can be forced to insert top-level headline
  1770. ** Removed functions
  1771. *** Removed function ~org-translate-time~
  1772. Use ~org-timestamp-translate~ instead.
  1773. *** Removed function ~org-beamer-insert-options-template~
  1774. This function inserted a Beamer specific template at point or in
  1775. current subtree. Use ~org-export-insert-default-template~ instead, as
  1776. it provides more features and covers all export back-ends. It is also
  1777. accessible from the export dispatcher.
  1778. *** Removed function ~org-timer-cancel-timer~
  1779. ~org-timer-stop~ now stops both relative and countdown timers.
  1780. *** Removed function ~org-export-solidify-link-text~
  1781. This function, being non-bijective, introduced bug in internal
  1782. references. Use ~org-export-get-reference~ instead.
  1783. *** Removed function ~org-end-of-meta-data-and-drawers~
  1784. The function is superseded by ~org-end-of-meta-data~, called with an
  1785. optional argument.
  1786. *** Removed functions ~org-table-colgroup-line-p~, ~org-table-cookie-line-p~
  1787. These functions were left-over from pre 8.0 era. They are not correct
  1788. anymore. Since they are not needed, they have no replacement.
  1789. ** Removed options
  1790. *** ~org-list-empty-line-terminates-plain-lists~ is deprecated
  1791. It will be kept in code base until next release, for backward
  1792. compatibility.
  1793. If you need to separate consecutive lists with blank lines, always use
  1794. two of them, as if this option was nil (default value).
  1795. *** ~org-export-with-creator~ is a boolean
  1796. Special ~comment~ value is no longer allowed. It is possible to use a
  1797. body filter to add comments about the creator at the end of the
  1798. document instead.
  1799. *** Removed option =org-html-use-unicode-chars=
  1800. Setting this to non-nil was problematic as it converted characters
  1801. everywhere in the buffer, possibly corrupting URLs.
  1802. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-command=
  1803. This undocumented option defaulted to the value of =shell-file-name= at
  1804. the time of loading =ob-shell=. The new behavior is to use the value
  1805. of =shell-file-name= directly when the shell langage is =shell=. To chose
  1806. a different shell, either customize =shell-file-name= or bind this
  1807. variable locally.
  1808. *** Removed option =org-babel-sh-var-quote-fmt=
  1809. This undocumented option was supposed to provide different quoting
  1810. styles when changing the shell type. Changing the shell type can now
  1811. be done directly from the source block and the quoting style has to be
  1812. compatible across all shells, so a customization doesn't make sense
  1813. anymore. The chosen hard coded quoting style conforms to POSIX.
  1814. *** Removed option ~org-insert-labeled-timestamps-at-point~
  1815. Setting this option to anything else that the default value (nil)
  1816. would create invalid planning info. This dangerous option is now
  1817. removed.
  1818. *** Removed option ~org-koma-letter-use-title~
  1819. Use org-export-with-title instead. See also below.
  1820. *** Removed option ~org-entities-ascii-explanatory~
  1821. This variable has no effect since Org 8.0.
  1822. *** Removed option ~org-table-error-on-row-ref-crossing-hline~
  1823. This variable has no effect since August 2009.
  1824. *** Removed MathML-related options from ~org-html-mathjax-options~
  1825. MathJax automatically chooses the best display technology based on the
  1826. end-users browser. You may force initial usage of MathML via
  1827. ~org-html-mathjax-template~ or by setting the ~path~ property of
  1828. ~org-html-mathjax-options~.
  1829. *** Removed comment-related filters
  1830. ~org-export-filter-comment-functions~ and
  1831. ~org-export-filter-comment-block-functions~ variables do not exist
  1832. anymore.
  1833. ** Miscellaneous
  1834. *** Strip all meta data from ITEM special property
  1835. ITEM special property does not contain TODO, priority or tags anymore.
  1836. *** File names in links accept are now compatible with URI syntax
  1837. Absolute file names can now start with =///= in addition to =/=. E.g.,
  1838. =[[file:///home/me/unicorn.jpg]]=.
  1839. *** Footnotes in included files are now local to the file
  1840. As a consequence, it is possible to include multiple Org files with
  1841. footnotes in a master document without being concerned about footnote
  1842. labels colliding.
  1843. *** Mailto links now use regular URI syntax
  1844. This change deprecates old Org syntax for mailto links:
  1845. =mailto:user@domain::Subject=.
  1846. *** =QUOTE= keywords do not exist anymore
  1847. =QUOTE= keywords have been deprecated since Org 8.2.
  1848. *** Select tests to perform with the build system
  1849. The build system has been enhanced to allow test selection with a
  1850. regular expression by defining =BTEST_RE= during the test invocation.
  1851. This is especially useful during bisection to find just when a
  1852. particular test failure was introduced.
  1853. *** Exact heading search for external links ignore spaces and cookies
  1854. Exact heading search for links now ignore spaces and cookies. This is
  1855. the case for links of the form ~file:projects.org::*task title~, as well
  1856. as links of the form ~file:projects.org::some words~ when
  1857. ~org-link-search-must-match-exact-headline~ is not nil.
  1858. *** ~org-latex-hyperref-template~, ~org-latex-title-command~ formatting
  1859. New formatting keys are supported. See the respective docstrings.
  1860. Note, ~org-latex-hyperref-template~ has a new default value.
  1861. *** ~float, wasysym, marvosym~ are removed from ~org-latex-default-packages-alist~
  1862. If you require any of these package add them to your preamble via
  1863. ~org-latex-packages-alist~. Org also uses default LaTeX ~\tolerance~ now.
  1864. *** When exporting, throw an error on unresolved id/fuzzy links and code refs
  1865. This helps spotting wrong links.
  1866. * Version 8.2
  1867. ** Incompatible changes
  1868. *** =ob-sh.el= renamed to =ob-shell=
  1869. This may require two changes in user config.
  1870. 1. In =org-babel-do-load-languages=, change =(sh . t)= to =(shell . t)=.
  1871. 2. Edit =local.mk= files to change the value of =BTEST_OB_LANGUAGES=
  1872. to remove "sh" and include "shell".
  1873. *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el
  1874. Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require
  1875. 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you
  1876. need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=.
  1877. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to
  1878. =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line:
  1879. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)
  1880. with this:
  1881. : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)
  1882. *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...)
  1883. Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  1884. t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with
  1885. option keywords like :html-include-style.
  1886. So you need to replace
  1887. : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t
  1888. by
  1889. : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t
  1890. Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS=
  1891. and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=.
  1892. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~
  1893. ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different
  1894. process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without
  1895. relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro.
  1896. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift
  1897. the other optional arguments accordingly.
  1898. *** Export back-ends are now structures
  1899. Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the
  1900. communication channel during an export process. In other words, from
  1901. now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead
  1902. of a symbol.
  1903. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though.
  1904. ** Important bugfixes
  1905. *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed
  1906. *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date
  1907. *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value
  1908. You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now,
  1909. this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the
  1910. separator starting a TOTO match string.
  1911. ** New features
  1912. *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status
  1913. See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end
  1914. of the list.
  1915. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements
  1916. - Support SVG images
  1917. - Support for .pgf files
  1918. - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files
  1919. - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]]
  1920. - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be
  1921. replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~
  1922. or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword.
  1923. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we
  1924. now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead.
  1925. *** New functions for paragraph motion
  1926. The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands
  1927. that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor
  1928. in a paragraph-like way.
  1929. *** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  1930. Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  1931. dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  1932. leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  1933. preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  1934. check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.
  1935. *** Anonymous export back-ends
  1936. ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends,
  1937. which can then be passed to export functions like
  1938. ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~.
  1939. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of
  1940. registering a new back-end.
  1941. *** New agenda fortnight view
  1942. The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year
  1943. views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days.
  1944. ** New options
  1945. *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]]
  1946. This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.
  1947. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]]
  1948. This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  1949. See https://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details.
  1950. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs
  1951. This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  1952. the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]].
  1953. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not
  1954. allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el=
  1955. library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  1956. so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  1957. t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  1958. of =ox-rss.el=.
  1959. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]]
  1960. This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.
  1961. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]]
  1962. This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.
  1963. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]]
  1964. See [[https://lists.gnu.org/r/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha.
  1965. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]]
  1966. If you set this to the following
  1967. : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")
  1968. then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.
  1969. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]]
  1970. This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of
  1971. =C-o= in tables.
  1972. ** New contributed packages
  1973. - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX
  1974. export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]]
  1975. software.
  1976. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle
  1977. screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]].
  1978. ** Miscellaneous
  1979. *** "QUOTE" keywords in headlines are deprecated
  1980. "QUOTE" keywords are an undocumented feature in Org. When a headline
  1981. starts with the keyword "QUOTE", its contents are parsed as
  1982. a ~quote-section~ and treated as an example block. You can achieve
  1983. the same with example blocks.
  1984. This feature is deprecated and will be removed in the next Org
  1985. release.
  1986. * Version 8.0.1
  1987. ** Installation
  1988. Installation instructions have been updated and simplified.
  1989. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these
  1990. instructions:
  1991. - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the
  1992. =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org
  1993. customization that would call autoloaded Org functions.
  1994. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the
  1995. correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$ make autoloads= (to
  1996. only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile
  1997. the Emacs lisp files.) =~$ make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you
  1998. detailed explanations.
  1999. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA),
  2000. you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org
  2001. function has been called already.
  2002. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up
  2003. installation.
  2004. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details.
  2005. ** Incompatible changes
  2006. Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org.
  2007. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them.
  2008. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and
  2009. you will have to update them.
  2010. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action.
  2011. See https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of
  2012. this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate.
  2013. **** New export engine
  2014. Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This
  2015. export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was
  2016. already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of
  2017. /all/ export back-ends.
  2018. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the
  2019. keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the
  2020. built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them
  2021. directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option
  2022. [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]].
  2023. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the
  2024. corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix.
  2025. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to
  2026. rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an
  2027. option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the
  2028. manual for details and check [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions.
  2029. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options
  2030. : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px"
  2031. should now be written
  2032. : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px
  2033. Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their
  2034. respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on
  2035. each backend. See Org's manual for details.
  2036. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed
  2037. You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes.
  2038. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is
  2039. now fully removed.
  2040. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your
  2041. remember templates into capture templates.
  2042. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~
  2043. If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you
  2044. will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file.
  2045. **** Note for third-party developers
  2046. The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the
  2047. prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel
  2048. files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~.
  2049. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your
  2050. code.
  2051. **** Packages moved from core to contrib
  2052. Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try
  2053. to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we
  2054. moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory.
  2055. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/=
  2056. is either because they rely on third-party software that is not
  2057. included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant
  2058. user-base.
  2059. - org-colview-xemacs.el
  2060. - org-mac-message.el
  2061. - org-mew.el
  2062. - org-wl.el
  2063. - ox-freedmind.el
  2064. - ox-taskjuggler.el
  2065. Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan,
  2066. ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and
  2067. ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others.
  2068. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy
  2069. wrote [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export.
  2070. ** New packages in core
  2071. *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye
  2072. =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling.
  2073. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2074. =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages.
  2075. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou
  2076. =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the
  2077. vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]].
  2078. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
  2079. =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files.
  2080. ** New packages in contrib
  2081. *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G. Jay Kerns
  2082. [[http://julialang.org/][Julia]] is a new programming language.
  2083. =ob-julia.el= provides Org Babel support for evaluating Julia source
  2084. code.
  2085. *** ~ob-mathomatic.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2086. [[http://www.mathomatic.org/][mathomatic]] a portable, command-line, educational CAS and calculator
  2087. software, written entirely in the C programming language.
  2088. ~ob-mathomatic.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating mathomatic
  2089. entries.
  2090. *** ~ob-tcl.el~ by Luis Anaya
  2091. ~ob-tcl.el~ provides Org Babel support for evaluating [[http://www.tcl.tk/][Tcl]] source code.
  2092. *** ~org-bullets.el~ by Evgeni Sabof
  2093. Display bullets instead of stars for headlines.
  2094. Also see [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#sec-8-12][this updated FAQ]] on how to display another character than "*"
  2095. for starting headlines.
  2096. *** ~org-favtable.el~ by Marc-Oliver Ihm
  2097. ~org-favtable.el~ helps you to create and update a table of favorite
  2098. locations in org, keeping the most frequently visited lines right at
  2099. the top. This table is called "favtable". See the documentation on
  2100. [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-favtable.html][Worg]].
  2101. *** ~ox-confluence.el~ by Sébastien Delafond
  2102. ~ox-confluence.el~ lets you convert Org files to [[https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence%2BWiki%2BMarkup][Confluence Wiki]] files.
  2103. *** ~ox-deck.el~ and ~ox-s5.el~ by Rick Frankel
  2104. [[http://imakewebthings.com/deck.js/][deck.js]] is a javascript library for displaying HTML ages as
  2105. presentations. ~ox-deck.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2106. using =deck.js=.
  2107. [[http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/][s5]] is a set of scripts which also allows to display HTML pages as
  2108. presentations. ~ox-s5.el~ exports Org files to HTML presentations
  2109. using =s5=.
  2110. *** ~ox-groff.el~ by Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou
  2111. The [[https://www.gnu.org/software/groff/][groff]] (GNU troff) software is a typesetting package which reads
  2112. plain text mixed with formatting commands and produces formatted
  2113. output.
  2114. Luis Anaya and Nicolas Goaziou implemented ~ox-groff.el~ to allow
  2115. conversion from Org files to groff.
  2116. *** ~ox-koma-letter.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and Alan Schmitt
  2117. This back-end allow to export Org pages to the =KOMA Scrlttr2= format.
  2118. *** ~ox-rss.el~ by Bastien
  2119. This back-end lets you export Org pages to RSS 2.0 feeds. Combined
  2120. with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog
  2121. entirely with Org.
  2122. ** New features
  2123. *** Export
  2124. **** New export generic options
  2125. If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about
  2126. it]]. It has been updated and includes new options.
  2127. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance:
  2128. - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option
  2129. =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=.
  2130. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization
  2131. file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords.
  2132. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of
  2133. =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is
  2134. now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of
  2135. [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a
  2136. new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When
  2137. set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps
  2138. standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only
  2139. contains time-stamps.
  2140. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in
  2141. Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that
  2142. the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs.
  2143. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter
  2144. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]].
  2145. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter
  2146. See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]].
  2147. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export
  2148. **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links
  2149. **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links
  2150. *** Structure editing
  2151. **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree
  2152. **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded
  2153. [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which
  2154. prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree.
  2155. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line
  2156. This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region
  2157. would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would
  2158. create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates
  2159. an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole
  2160. region.
  2161. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words
  2162. In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these*
  2163. _words__= will preserve markup.
  2164. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P=
  2165. This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It
  2166. is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p=
  2167. can slow down the flow of editing too much.
  2168. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]]
  2169. These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the
  2170. speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.)
  2171. **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]]
  2172. These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= but are
  2173. now bound to =S-M-<down>= and =S-M-<up>= respectively, since =M-<down>= and
  2174. =M-<up>= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.)
  2175. forward and backward.
  2176. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too
  2177. **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered
  2178. Now Org will sort this list
  2179. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2180. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2181. like this:
  2182. : - [[http://def.org][A]]
  2183. : - [[http://abc.org][B]]
  2184. by comparing the descriptions, not the links.
  2185. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items.
  2186. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp=
  2187. For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using
  2188. =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility
  2189. states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines.
  2190. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file
  2191. local variable.
  2192. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]]
  2193. The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp.
  2194. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a
  2195. time-shift even if there is a time-stamp.
  2196. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]]
  2197. This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you
  2198. restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=).
  2199. The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the
  2200. restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this
  2201. option to =nil=.
  2202. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]]
  2203. When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now
  2204. removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this
  2205. information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=).
  2206. If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the
  2207. TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=.
  2208. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]]
  2209. This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images.
  2210. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a
  2211. fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like
  2212. : #+attr_html: :width 300px
  2213. *** Scheduled/deadline
  2214. **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items
  2215. If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can
  2216. now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The
  2217. task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting
  2218. from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.)
  2219. Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell
  2220. you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the
  2221. display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task
  2222. to appear as scheduled on March 25th.
  2223. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all
  2224. occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled
  2225. occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]]
  2226. and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to
  2227. control this globally or per agenda.
  2228. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks
  2229. See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful.
  2230. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks
  2231. =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines.
  2232. *** Calendar, diary and appts
  2233. **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]]
  2234. By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the
  2235. normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign
  2236. the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this:
  2237. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2238. ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
  2239. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)
  2240. ;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
  2241. (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
  2242. (kbd "@")
  2243. (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))
  2244. #+END_SRC
  2245. **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point
  2246. This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an
  2247. appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will
  2248. call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer.
  2249. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links
  2250. [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it
  2251. in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed,
  2252. only show their description, not the full links.
  2253. *** Agenda
  2254. **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*=
  2255. When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will
  2256. list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you
  2257. want to build a list of appointments.
  2258. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in
  2259. each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there.
  2260. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file:
  2261. : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org
  2262. This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a
  2263. time value (i.e. appointments).
  2264. **** New agenda sorting strategies
  2265. [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies:
  2266. | Strategy | Explanations |
  2267. |----------------+------------------------------------------|
  2268. | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first |
  2269. | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first |
  2270. | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first |
  2271. | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first |
  2272. | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first |
  2273. | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first |
  2274. | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first |
  2275. | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first |
  2276. | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first |
  2277. | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first |
  2278. **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries
  2279. You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is
  2280. different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda,
  2281. while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries.
  2282. These new options are available:
  2283. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries.
  2284. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs.
  2285. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries.
  2286. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes).
  2287. For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda
  2288. view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries
  2289. without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored.
  2290. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is
  2291. to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have
  2292. no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit
  2293. to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not
  2294. show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show
  2295. non-tagged headlines.
  2296. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits
  2297. You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will
  2298. regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for
  2299. example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks
  2300. that take only =N= minutes.
  2301. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions
  2302. You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u
  2303. == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set
  2304. [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view.
  2305. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters
  2306. Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp
  2307. filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once.
  2308. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file
  2309. You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the
  2310. headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file.
  2311. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full
  2312. list of notes.
  2313. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-<down>=) or backward (=M-<up>=)
  2314. It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize
  2315. your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use
  2316. =M-<down>= and =M-<up>= to move the line forward or backward.
  2317. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not
  2318. change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda.
  2319. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view
  2320. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org
  2321. to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view.
  2322. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda.
  2323. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view
  2324. [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to
  2325. display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the
  2326. outline tree.
  2327. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file
  2328. =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to
  2329. overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now
  2330. asks for a confirmation.
  2331. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action
  2332. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles
  2333. the mark of the entry at point.
  2334. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and
  2335. toggles all the marks in the current agenda.
  2336. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]]
  2337. This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view.
  2338. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of
  2339. level 1.
  2340. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]]
  2341. This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring
  2342. options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display.
  2343. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]]
  2344. This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of
  2345. entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view.
  2346. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]
  2347. The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes
  2348. it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via
  2349. [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting
  2350. string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean.
  2351. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2352. When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to
  2353. =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are
  2354. repeated beyond the current deadline.
  2355. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]]
  2356. This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol `pre-scheduled', or a number
  2357. which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the
  2358. prewarnings should resume. The symbol `pre-scheduled' eliminates the
  2359. deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date.
  2360. Read the full docstring for details.
  2361. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter
  2362. For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day:
  2363. : * Task
  2364. : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")>
  2365. *** Capture
  2366. **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]]
  2367. With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at
  2368. point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the
  2369. capture template.
  2370. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates
  2371. If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will
  2372. expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=.
  2373. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer
  2374. [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2375. allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should
  2376. be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to
  2377. check against the name of the buffer.
  2378. *** Tag groups
  2379. Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/
  2380. (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return
  2381. headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination
  2382. of those tags.)
  2383. You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating
  2384. agenda views, and for filtering.
  2385. See https://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details.
  2386. *** Links
  2387. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions
  2388. Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from
  2389. other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer
  2390. through new link protocols (see [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.)
  2391. Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link
  2392. as if the protocol was not known.
  2393. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=.
  2394. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines
  2395. Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a
  2396. Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link
  2397. RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is
  2398. active.
  2399. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one
  2400. =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a
  2401. description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing
  2402. with-description and without-description links when inserting them.
  2403. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links
  2404. When storing a link to a headline like
  2405. : * See [[https://orgmode.org][Org website]]
  2406. [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets.
  2407. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when
  2408. there is no description.
  2409. *** Table
  2410. **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines
  2411. If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will
  2412. apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply
  2413. those other formulas.
  2414. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas
  2415. If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section
  2416. [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the
  2417. mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards
  2418. the end.
  2419. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation
  2420. If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than
  2421. english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by
  2422. internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before
  2423. doing computation.
  2424. **** New lookup functions
  2425. There are now three lookup functions:
  2426. - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]]
  2427. - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]]
  2428. - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]]
  2429. See [[https://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details.
  2430. *** Startup keywords
  2431. These new startup keywords are now available:
  2432. | Startup keyword | Option |
  2433. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2434. | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= |
  2435. | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= |
  2436. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2437. | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= |
  2438. | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= |
  2439. |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------|
  2440. | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= |
  2441. | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= |
  2442. *** Clocking
  2443. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]]
  2444. E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you
  2445. clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next
  2446. 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after
  2447. your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50.
  2448. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]]
  2449. When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one
  2450. day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked
  2451. for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in
  2452. the clocktable.
  2453. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and
  2454. [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats.
  2455. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]]
  2456. This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in
  2457. milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=.
  2458. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]]
  2459. When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]]. Note that this
  2460. option has precedence over the combined use of [[doc:org-use-effective-time][org-use-effective-time]] and
  2461. [[doc:org-extend-today-until][org-extend-today-until]].
  2462. **** =S-<left/right>= on a clocksum column will update the sum by updating the last clock
  2463. **** =C-u 3 C-S-<up/down>= will update clock timestamps synchronously by 3 units
  2464. **** New parameter =:wstart= for clocktables to define the week start day
  2465. **** New parameter =:mstart= to state the starting day of the month
  2466. **** Allow relative times in clocktable tstart and tend options
  2467. **** The clocktable summary is now a caption
  2468. **** =:tstart= and =:tend= and friends allow relative times like "<-1w>" or "<now>"
  2469. *** Babel
  2470. **** You can now use =C-c C-k= for [[doc:org-edit-src-abort][org-edit-src-abort]]
  2471. This allows you to quickly cancel editing a source block.
  2472. **** =C-u C-u M-x org-babel-tangle RET= tangles by the target file of the block at point
  2473. This is handy if you want to tangle all source code blocks that have the
  2474. same target than the block at point.
  2475. **** New options for auto-saving the base buffer or the source block editing buffer
  2476. When [[doc:org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save][org-edit-src-turn-on-auto-save]] is set to =t=, editing a source block
  2477. in a new window will turn on =auto-save-mode= and save the code in a new
  2478. file under the same directory than the base Org file.
  2479. When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=,
  2480. the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle
  2481. time.
  2482. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results
  2483. This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current
  2484. code block through another code block for post-processing. See the
  2485. manual for a usage example.
  2486. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling
  2487. If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in
  2488. the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when
  2489. collecting blocks for tangling.
  2490. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash
  2491. **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current
  2492. Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the
  2493. cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case.
  2494. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved.
  2495. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)=
  2496. When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)=
  2497. instead of requiring each Babel library one by one.
  2498. *** Faces
  2499. - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default
  2500. - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords
  2501. - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda
  2502. - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags
  2503. ** Miscellaneous
  2504. - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]]
  2505. - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change)
  2506. - [[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]]
  2507. - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments
  2508. - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol
  2509. - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default
  2510. - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task
  2511. - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]]
  2512. - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode=
  2513. - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically
  2514. - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]]
  2515. - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]]
  2516. - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links
  2517. - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks
  2518. - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server=
  2519. - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43
  2520. - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7
  2521. - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports OS X versions up to 10.8
  2522. - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el=
  2523. ** Outside Org
  2524. *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez
  2525. David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish:
  2526. You can read the [[https://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]].
  2527. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~
  2528. Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by
  2529. Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code
  2530. buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of
  2531. Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and
  2532. ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give
  2533. source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly
  2534. improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be
  2535. found here: https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html
  2536. Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools:
  2537. - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]]
  2538. - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']]
  2539. *** MobileOrg for iOS
  2540. MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on
  2541. the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to
  2542. launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]].
  2543. * Version 7.9.3
  2544. ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]
  2545. [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when
  2546. org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo=
  2547. agenda views.)
  2548. When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and
  2549. =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries
  2550. to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct
  2551. in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the
  2552. agenda type to this variable.
  2553. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda
  2554. generation.
  2555. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda
  2556. lines even if `org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now
  2557. to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about
  2558. them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]].
  2559. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]]
  2560. Using `nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You
  2561. can hit `#' (or `C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn
  2562. invisible) blocked tasks.
  2563. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]]
  2564. You can now use `:' (instead of `;') for setting tags---this is
  2565. consistent with using the `:' key in agenda view.
  2566. You can now use `=' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]].
  2567. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead
  2568. ** No GPL manual anymore
  2569. There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the
  2570. case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this.
  2571. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly.
  2572. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs
  2573. Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with
  2574. various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay
  2575. in most environments.
  2576. * Version 7.9.2
  2577. ** New ELPA repository for Org packages
  2578. You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this:
  2579. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2580. (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  2581. #+END_SRC
  2582. It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also
  2583. available through https://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the
  2584. extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/=
  2585. directory.)
  2586. See https://orgmode.org/elpa/
  2587. ** Overview of the new keybindings
  2588. | Keybinding | Speedy | Command |
  2589. |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------|
  2590. | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] |
  2591. | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] |
  2592. | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] |
  2593. | =M-h= | | [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] |
  2594. | =*= | | [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] |
  2595. | =C-c C-M-l= | | [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]] |
  2596. | =C-c C-x C-M-v= | | [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]] |
  2597. | =C-c C-x E= | =E= | [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]] |
  2598. | | =#= | [[doc::org-toggle-comment][org-toggle-comment]] |

  2600. | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= |
  2601. | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] |
  2602. | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] |
  2603. ** New package and Babel language
  2604. *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org
  2605. =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]].
  2606. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el)
  2607. *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el)
  2608. ** Incompatible changes
  2609. - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  2610. [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on.
  2611. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=
  2612. instead.
  2613. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to
  2614. =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The
  2615. previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=.
  2616. ** New features and user-visible changes
  2617. *** Org Element
  2618. =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements"
  2619. in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou
  2620. and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's
  2621. core and many core functions rely on this package.
  2622. Two functions might be particularly handy for users:
  2623. =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=.
  2624. See the docstrings for more details.
  2625. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely
  2626. on =org-element.el=.
  2627. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten
  2628. The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the
  2629. right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in
  2630. a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode
  2631. will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc.
  2632. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward
  2633. If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and
  2634. down), you can first select the line as an active region, then
  2635. =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or
  2636. forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line.
  2637. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)
  2638. This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.
  2639. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)
  2640. This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of
  2641. elements.
  2642. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point
  2643. **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point
  2644. This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at
  2645. point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the
  2646. paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list
  2647. item. Etc.
  2648. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark
  2649. the whole list.
  2650. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline
  2651. (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or
  2652. [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree.
  2653. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next
  2654. element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice
  2655. on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on
  2656. the same level.
  2657. *** Org Agenda
  2658. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]]
  2659. There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky"
  2660. agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that
  2661. you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the
  2662. corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver.
  2663. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be
  2664. named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky
  2665. agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and
  2666. further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of
  2667. generating new ones.
  2668. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single
  2669. agenda buffer.
  2670. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]]
  2671. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2672. agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set
  2673. to this value
  2674. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2675. (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
  2676. '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))
  2677. #+END_SRC
  2678. then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers
  2679. visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more
  2680. details on how to use this.
  2681. **** Changes in bulk actions
  2682. The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the
  2683. features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature.
  2684. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=,
  2685. the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if
  2686. on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you
  2687. will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to,
  2688. using the timestamp at point as the default prompt.
  2689. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date
  2690. at point as an overriding date for the capture template.
  2691. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its
  2692. keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to
  2693. =t=.
  2694. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item
  2695. **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items
  2696. This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.
  2697. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the
  2698. character to use as a mark for bulk actions.
  2699. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]]
  2700. When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk
  2701. action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when
  2702. invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your
  2703. rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with
  2704. =f= or =w=).
  2705. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]]
  2706. =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because
  2707. of deadline.
  2708. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times
  2709. because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline.
  2710. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the
  2711. fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not
  2712. shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown
  2713. several times.
  2714. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions
  2715. See the [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=f426da][git commit]] for more explanations.
  2716. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda
  2717. You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will
  2718. filter by the category of the item on the current line, and
  2719. pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag
  2720. filters and category filters.
  2721. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda
  2722. views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main
  2723. configuration.
  2724. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]:
  2725. hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that
  2726. are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at
  2727. point.
  2728. *** Org Links
  2729. **** Inserting links
  2730. When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is
  2731. now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the
  2732. description is often more useful when you look for the link you
  2733. want to insert.
  2734. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If
  2735. you complete a description, the literal link and its description
  2736. will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal
  2737. link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.)
  2738. In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now
  2739. highlighted.
  2740. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links
  2741. On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in
  2742. abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s=
  2743. but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function
  2744. that takes the tag as its own argument.)
  2745. **** New link type =help=
  2746. You can now create links from =help= buffers.
  2747. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with
  2748. =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let
  2749. you go back to the same buffer.
  2750. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]]
  2751. This will insert all links as list items. With a universal
  2752. prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable
  2753. =org-stored-links=.
  2754. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.
  2755. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]]
  2756. When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.
  2757. **** Org can now open multiple shell links
  2758. **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server
  2759. **** RET now follows time stamps links
  2760. *** Org Editing
  2761. **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region
  2762. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using
  2763. [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will
  2764. loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO
  2765. keyword for several items, or archive them quickly.
  2766. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region
  2767. If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then
  2768. selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for
  2769. all headlines in the region.
  2770. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively
  2771. **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line
  2772. Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments
  2773. with "^#+" are not supported anymore.
  2774. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline
  2775. **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]]
  2776. =C-M-\= should now produce useful results.
  2777. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]].
  2778. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]]
  2779. When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= will promote level-1 subtrees
  2780. containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be
  2781. commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x
  2782. undo RET=.
  2783. *** Org Clock
  2784. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]]
  2785. **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]]
  2786. **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item
  2787. This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last
  2788. clocked entry, if any.
  2789. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to
  2790. **** =S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock
  2791. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]]
  2792. When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the
  2793. last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked
  2794. out.
  2795. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u
  2796. C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments)
  2797. and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix
  2798. arguments).
  2799. **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]]
  2800. This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking
  2801. in.
  2802. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display
  2803. [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time
  2804. cells in clockreport.
  2805. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total
  2806. time cells in clockreport.
  2807. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display
  2808. [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock
  2809. is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2810. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed
  2811. in the mode line and/or frame title.
  2812. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame
  2813. title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful
  2814. for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample
  2815. space in the frame title.
  2816. *** Org Appearance
  2817. **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]]
  2818. The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn
  2819. on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might
  2820. be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you
  2821. don't want to see temporarily.
  2822. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]]
  2823. This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.
  2824. **** New entities in =org-entities.el=
  2825. There are these new entities:
  2826. : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
  2827. : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/")
  2828. : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+")
  2829. : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_")
  2830. : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=")
  2831. : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^")
  2832. **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms
  2833. **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day
  2834. **** New face value for =org-document-title=
  2835. The face is back to a normal height.
  2836. *** Org Columns
  2837. **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view
  2838. **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time
  2839. You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It
  2840. will display the time spent on tasks for today only.
  2841. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks
  2842. If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic
  2843. block will use its value as the column format.
  2844. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum
  2845. *** Org Dates and Time Stamps
  2846. **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]]
  2847. =C-c /= can now check for time ranges.
  2848. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the
  2849. type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this
  2850. interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting
  2851. [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want.
  2852. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies
  2853. You can now use
  2854. : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h>
  2855. if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry.
  2856. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt
  2857. **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt
  2858. "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a
  2859. date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to
  2860. =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication.
  2861. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]]
  2862. When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a
  2863. timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a
  2864. sparse tree with =C-c /=.
  2865. *** Org Capture
  2866. **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]]
  2867. M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture
  2868. template. The string will be used as an annotation for the
  2869. template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets
  2870. you define the content of the template without being in Emacs.
  2871. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]]
  2872. Setting this option allows you to define specific context where
  2873. capture templates should be available from. For example, when
  2874. set to this value
  2875. #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  2876. (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
  2877. '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))
  2878. #+END_SRC
  2879. then the =c= capture template will only be available from
  2880. =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for
  2881. more details on how to use this.
  2882. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link
  2883. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]]
  2884. Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note.
  2885. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to
  2886. =nil=.
  2887. **** Expand =%<num>= escape sequences into text entered for <num>'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape
  2888. See the manual for more explanations.
  2889. **** More control over empty lines
  2890. You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to
  2891. control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more
  2892. explanations.
  2893. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]]
  2894. This new hook runs before the finalization process starts.
  2895. *** Org Export
  2896. **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode=
  2897. =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and
  2898. =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when
  2899. available) to print beautiful tables.
  2900. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format
  2901. When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]]
  2902. will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting
  2903. the table.
  2904. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]]
  2905. The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps
  2906. in the #+DATE option.
  2907. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend
  2908. See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]].
  2909. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX=
  2910. **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment
  2911. Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]].
  2912. More languages are always welcome.
  2913. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]]
  2914. This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties.
  2915. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this.
  2916. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el
  2917. **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[https://orgmode.org/cgit.cgi/org-mode.git/commit/?id=e9fd33][this commit]] for details)
  2918. **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats
  2919. **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines
  2920. **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese
  2921. **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]]
  2922. Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks
  2923. to Sébastien Vauban for this patch.
  2924. *** Org Babel
  2925. **** New =:results drawer= parameter
  2926. =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still
  2927. supported.
  2928. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block
  2929. =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts
  2930. results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines.
  2931. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete.
  2932. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code
  2933. It used to exports the results of the code.
  2934. *** Miscellaneous
  2935. **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]]
  2936. **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries
  2937. If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before
  2938. inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture.
  2939. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables
  2940. Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>.
  2941. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so
  2942. that Calc formulas can operate on them.
  2943. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark
  2944. **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME=
  2945. You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When
  2946. set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the
  2947. value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning
  2948. alarm.
  2949. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]]
  2950. This will increment the effort value.
  2951. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command.
  2952. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links
  2953. =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to
  2954. attach symbolic links.
  2955. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree
  2956. **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]]
  2957. =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as
  2958. additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown.
  2959. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]]
  2960. This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory.
  2961. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments
  2962. **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely
  2963. **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes
  2964. =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item.
  2965. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for
  2966. all top level list items.
  2967. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete
  2968. Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see.
  2969. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates
  2970. **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]]
  2971. **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file
  2972. **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]]
  2973. When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to
  2974. =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but
  2975. will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the
  2976. first headline in the region.
  2977. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]]
  2978. When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's
  2979. agenda.
  2980. ** Important bug fixes
  2981. *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again
  2982. If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to
  2983. perform completion with meaningful values.
  2984. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets
  2985. Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to
  2986. HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is
  2987. owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  2988. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions
  2989. the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license.
  2990. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser
  2991. mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later)
  2992. license.
  2993. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt
  2994. the code and the license to your needs.
  2995. See https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for
  2996. explanations on why these changes were necessary.
  2997. * Version 7.8.11
  2998. ** Incompatible changes
  2999. *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped
  3000. Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[https://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead.
  3001. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version
  3002. To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer
  3003. version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely,
  3004. but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that
  3005. made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this
  3006. last-minute save.
  3007. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees
  3008. The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO
  3009. sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done
  3010. states) and =C-c / T= (specific states).
  3011. *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete
  3012. The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use
  3013. =org-agenda-span= instead.
  3014. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this.
  3015. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes=
  3016. So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header
  3017. of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls
  3018. necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to
  3019. maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call,
  3020. for example for the special symbol support it needs.
  3021. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following
  3022. way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I
  3023. will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If
  3024. that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the
  3025. rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the
  3026. =[EXTRA]= place holder):
  3027. #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  3028. (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil
  3029. org-export-latex-packages-alist nil)
  3030. #+end_src
  3031. /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified
  3032. setup./
  3033. There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX
  3034. packages that need to be included in all classes. The header
  3035. definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain
  3036. the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below).
  3037. The two new variables are:
  3038. 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the
  3039. variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs.
  3040. Normally you should not change this variable. The only
  3041. reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages
  3042. causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then
  3043. you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using
  3044. Org-mode functionality that needs it.
  3045. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where
  3046. you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all
  3047. classes.
  3048. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX
  3049. document are:
  3050. 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes=
  3051. 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=
  3052. 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist=
  3053. 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:=
  3054. If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or
  3055. if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the
  3056. header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can
  3057. put the following macro-like place holders into the header:
  3058. #+begin_example
  3059. [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages
  3060. [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages
  3061. [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages
  3062. [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages
  3063. [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER
  3064. [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff
  3065. #+end_example
  3066. If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you
  3067. should revise that customization and remove any package calls that
  3068. are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This
  3069. applies to the following packages:
  3070. - inputenc
  3071. - fontenc
  3072. - fixltx2e
  3073. - graphicx
  3074. - longtable
  3075. - float
  3076. - wrapfig
  3077. - soul
  3078. - t1enc
  3079. - textcomp
  3080. - marvosym
  3081. - wasysym
  3082. - latexsym
  3083. - amssymb
  3084. - hyperref
  3085. If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package
  3086. you are using, you can remove it from
  3087. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that
  3088. some of the advertised export features of Org will not work
  3089. properly.
  3090. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes
  3091. to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place
  3092. holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As
  3093. said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place
  3094. holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of
  3095. the header.
  3096. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete
  3097. Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which
  3098. is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was
  3099. an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write
  3100. code using it.
  3101. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed
  3102. Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly.
  3103. *** Deleted =org-mode-p=
  3104. This function has been deleted: please update your code.
  3105. ** Important new features
  3106. *** New Org to ODT exporter
  3107. Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org.
  3108. To use it, it `C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation
  3109. for more information on how to customize it.
  3110. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system
  3111. This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only
  3112. describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to
  3113. use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual
  3114. section [[https://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]].
  3115. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more
  3116. possibilities for capturing different types of data. See
  3117. [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details.
  3118. To switch over to the new system:
  3119. 1. Run
  3120. : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET
  3121. to get a translated version of your remember templates into the
  3122. new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work,
  3123. but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good
  3124. place to modify your templates. After running this command,
  3125. enter the customize buffer for this variable with
  3126. : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET
  3127. and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the
  3128. customization.
  3129. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did
  3130. with org-remember:
  3131. : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
  3132. If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once
  3133. you have decided to move over completely to the new
  3134. implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong
  3135. with using both system in parallel.
  3136. ** New libraries
  3137. *** New Org libraries
  3138. **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen)
  3139. Implement links to eshell buffers.
  3140. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik)
  3141. This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens.
  3142. To use, put the following in your init file:
  3143. #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
  3144. (require 'org-special-blocks)
  3145. #+END_EXAMPLE
  3146. The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed
  3147. previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the
  3148. LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is
  3149. encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded
  3150. into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not
  3151. protected, as text inside environments generally is.
  3152. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with
  3153. class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user
  3154. to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean
  3155. anything.
  3156. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli)
  3157. Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org.
  3158. He also wrote a [[https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it.
  3159. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton)
  3160. Targets like =<<my target>>= can now be found by Emacs' etag
  3161. functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to
  3162. etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file
  3163. /org-ctags.el/.
  3164. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will
  3165. call function to do something special with text links.
  3166. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution.
  3167. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker)
  3168. This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where
  3169. Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point
  3170. to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the
  3171. Org-mode manual:
  3172. : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]]
  3173. Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution.
  3174. *** New Babel libraries
  3175. - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz)
  3176. - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov)
  3177. - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte)
  3178. - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga)
  3179. - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte)
  3180. - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago)
  3181. - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte)
  3182. ** Other new features and various enhancements
  3183. *** Hyperlinks
  3184. **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements
  3185. Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references
  3186. data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a
  3187. single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is
  3188. stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline
  3189. free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all
  3190. standard bibtex reference types and fields.
  3191. The key new functions are
  3192. - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required
  3193. (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available
  3194. for the specific reference =type= of the current headline.
  3195. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level,
  3196. using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields.
  3197. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a
  3198. formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer
  3199. - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline
  3200. to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry.
  3201. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages
  3202. You can now create links from messages. This is particularly
  3203. useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for
  3204. later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch.
  3205. **** Modified link escaping
  3206. David Maus worked on `org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]:
  3207. : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters
  3208. : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets
  3209. : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in
  3210. : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http:
  3211. : link).
  3212. :
  3213. : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and
  3214. : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters.
  3215. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning
  3216. : percent escaped links are solved.
  3217. Thanks a lot to David for this work.
  3218. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer
  3219. When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a
  3220. file, `org-store-link' will store a link to the directory.
  3221. Patch by Stephen Eglen.
  3222. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters
  3223. The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has
  3224. changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps
  3225. are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping
  3226. to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command
  3227. string to be executed.
  3228. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax
  3229. =file:/doc.pdf::<page number>=, you can add the following entry
  3230. to org-file-apps:
  3231. #+begin_example
  3232. Extension: \.pdf::\([0-9]+\)\'
  3233. Command: evince "%s" -p %1
  3234. #+end_example
  3235. Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect.
  3236. *** Dates and time
  3237. **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline
  3238. You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w"
  3239. when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule
  3240. (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before
  3241. today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any.
  3242. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")=
  3243. will work on the current entry.
  3244. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and
  3245. (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda.
  3246. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this!
  3247. **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date=
  3248. So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this
  3249. #+begin_example
  3250. 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05
  3251. 2/5 --> <CURRENT-YEAR>-02-05
  3252. #+end_example
  3253. *** Agenda
  3254. **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value
  3255. This option used to be `nil' by default. This now has a default
  3256. value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for
  3257. details. Thanks to Carsten for this.
  3258. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt=
  3259. The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries
  3260. to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out
  3261. entries using a function.
  3262. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to
  3263. Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for
  3264. [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation.
  3265. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid
  3266. Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See
  3267. the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to
  3268. C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect.
  3269. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command
  3270. =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a
  3271. random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default.
  3272. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today,
  3273. you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want
  3274. them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with
  3275. a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days.
  3276. Thanks to John Wiegley for this.
  3277. *** Exporting
  3278. **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble
  3279. When set to `t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring
  3280. the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables.
  3281. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the
  3282. docstring of these variable for details about available
  3283. %-sequences.
  3284. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same
  3285. way: `t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a
  3286. formatting string will insert a string.
  3287. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8
  3288. While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to
  3289. improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide
  3290. representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all
  3291. of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich
  3292. in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new
  3293. exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c
  3294. C-e u=, respectively.
  3295. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the
  3296. targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like
  3297. representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For
  3298. example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]".
  3299. Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state
  3300. your preference.
  3301. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property
  3302. The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a
  3303. class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export.
  3304. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails
  3305. This behavior can be configured with the new option variable
  3306. =org-format-latex-signal-error=.
  3307. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents
  3308. Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in
  3309. to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple
  3310. presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some
  3311. support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[https://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER
  3312. section]] in the manual for more details.
  3313. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about
  3314. BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example
  3315. for how this community can achieve a much better result than any
  3316. individual could.
  3317. *** Refiling
  3318. **** Refile targets can now be cached
  3319. You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable
  3320. =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you
  3321. have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update
  3322. the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still
  3323. offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=.
  3324. **** New logging support for refiling
  3325. Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be
  3326. added to this entry. For details, see the new option
  3327. =org-log-refile=.
  3328. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea.
  3329. *** Completion
  3330. **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el
  3331. Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code.
  3332. *** Tables
  3333. **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point=
  3334. See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of
  3335. Org's core. Thanks to Juan!
  3336. **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c `=
  3337. When editing a field with =C-c `=, the field's coordinate will
  3338. the displayed in the buffer.
  3339. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect.
  3340. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values
  3341. If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in
  3342. Calc formulas or Elisp formulas:
  3343. | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total |
  3344. |--------+--------+---------|
  3345. | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 |
  3346. #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T
  3347. Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are
  3348. optional.
  3349. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and
  3350. feedback on this.
  3351. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges
  3352. Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas.
  3353. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define
  3354. : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows
  3355. : things like
  3356. :
  3357. : @3=
  3358. : @2$2..@5$7=
  3359. : @I$2..@II$4=
  3360. :
  3361. : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that
  3362. : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a
  3363. : table.
  3364. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this.
  3365. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed
  3366. Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also,
  3367. there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent.
  3368. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot.
  3369. *** Lists
  3370. **** Improved handling of lists
  3371. Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists.
  3372. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in
  3373. lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item
  3374. doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more
  3375. indented than it.
  3376. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the
  3377. variable `org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical
  3378. counters like [@c] or [@W].
  3379. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various
  3380. blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are
  3381. controlling this: `org-list-forbidden-blocks', and
  3382. `org-list-export-context'.
  3383. 4. Improve `newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will
  3384. keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text
  3385. and make paragraphs and still not break the list.
  3386. 5. Improve `org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with
  3387. standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a
  3388. prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and
  3389. make every line in region an item. It permits to easily
  3390. integrate paragraphs inside a list.
  3391. 6. `fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be
  3392. used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no
  3393. blank line around, without breaking list structure.
  3394. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this!
  3395. *** Inline display of linked images
  3396. Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does
  3397. toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links
  3398. that have no description part will be inlined.
  3399. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists
  3400. If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different
  3401. from 1, you can now do it like this:
  3402. : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12
  3403. *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview
  3404. In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the
  3405. code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents,
  3406. augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to
  3407. variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and
  3408. also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes
  3409. into account all header arguments, and variables.
  3410. A new keybinding `C-c M-b p' bound to `org-babel-expand-src-block'
  3411. can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its
  3412. expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging).
  3413. tangling
  3414. The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable
  3415. values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or
  3416. stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this
  3417. is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization
  3418. to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline
  3419. properties or in tables.
  3420. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default
  3421. behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column
  3422. names, and rownames across all languages.
  3423. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance
  3424. **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=)
  3425. This command will copy the visible text in the region into the
  3426. kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to
  3427. Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it!
  3428. **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k=
  3429. See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a
  3430. request by Scott Otterson.
  3431. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts.
  3432. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special
  3433. entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub
  3434. and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower
  3435. display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and
  3436. superscripts, see the variable
  3437. =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=.
  3438. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible.
  3439. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines
  3440. The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is
  3441. displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for
  3442. author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the
  3443. following new faces:
  3444. =org-document-title=
  3445. =org-document-info=
  3446. =org-document-info-keyword=
  3447. In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to
  3448. make the corresponding keywords disappear.
  3449. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature.
  3450. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords
  3451. The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and
  3452. =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as
  3453. specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or
  3454. background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the
  3455. variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face
  3456. property is affected by this setting.
  3457. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces.
  3458. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson.
  3459. **** <N> in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width
  3460. Requested by Michael Brand.
  3461. **** Better level cycling function
  3462. =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline
  3463. through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved
  3464. version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly
  3465. this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement.
  3466. **** Adaptive filling
  3467. For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle
  3468. the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is
  3469. now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">"
  3470. comments to be filled correctly.
  3471. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch.
  3472. **** `org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el)
  3473. Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change.
  3474. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords
  3475. When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now
  3476. assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords.
  3477. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch.
  3478. *** Clocking
  3479. **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log
  3480. Using =S-M-<up/down>= on CLOCK log timestamps will
  3481. increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that
  3482. duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be
  3483. slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding.
  3484. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea.
  3485. **** Localized clock tables
  3486. Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing
  3487. the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See
  3488. the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls
  3489. available translated strings.
  3490. **** Show clock overruns in mode line
  3491. When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the
  3492. planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example
  3493. using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an
  3494. extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=.
  3495. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect.
  3496. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock
  3497. If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls
  3498. into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent
  3499. can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting
  3500. of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is
  3501. =nil=.
  3502. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition.
  3503. *** Misc
  3504. **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation
  3505. There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks.
  3506. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=.
  3507. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes.
  3508. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property
  3509. This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if
  3510. some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it
  3511. would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a
  3512. property) back.
  3513. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this
  3514. change.
  3515. **** New helper functions in org-table.el
  3516. There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field.
  3517. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people.
  3518. #+begin_example
  3519. org-table-get
  3520. org-table-put
  3521. org-table-current-line
  3522. org-table-goto-line
  3523. #+end_example
  3524. **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node
  3525. The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have
  3526. archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target
  3527. node.
  3528. This was requested by Tom.
  3529. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent
  3530. This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for
  3531. example by viewing from the agenda.
