http://orgmode.org/w/?p=org-mode.git;a=commit;h=%s Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Free Software Foundation, Inc. See the end of the file for license conditions. Please send Org bug reports to emacs-orgmode@gnu.org. * Version 8.2 ** Incompatible changes *** Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el Please remove calls to =(require 'org-mac-message)= and =(require 'org-mac-link-grabber)= in your =.emacs= initialization file. All you need now is =(require 'org-mac-link)=. Additionally, replace any calls to =ogml-grab-link= to =org-mac-grab-link=. For example, replace this line: : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link) with this: : (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link) *** HTML export: Replace =HTML_HTML5_FANCY= by =:html-html5-fancy= (...) Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or t, like =#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. We replaced these binary options with option keywords like :html-include-style. So you need to replace : #+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE: t by : #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t Options affected by this change: =HTML5_FANCY=, =HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS= and =HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE=. *** Add an argument to ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-buffer~ ~org-export-to-file~ and ~org-export-to-file~ can run in a different process when provided a non-nil =ASYNC= optional argument, without relying on ~org-export-async-start~ macro. Since =ASYNC= is the first of optional arguments, you have to shift the other optional arguments accordingly. *** Export back-ends are now structures Export back-ends are now structures, and stored as such in the communication channel during an export process. In other words, from now on, ~(plist-get info :back-end)~ will return a structure instead of a symbol. Arguments in hooks and in filters are still symbols, though. ** Important bugfixes *** [[doc:org-insert-heading][org-insert-heading]] has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed *** The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date *** Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb". Until now, this would break because the slash would be interpreted as the separator starting a TOTO match string. ** New features *** =C-c ^ x= will now sort checklist items by their checked status See [[doc:org-sort-list][org-sort-list]]: hitting =C-c ^ x= will put checked items at the end of the list. *** Various LaTeX export enhancements - Support SVG images - Support for .pgf files - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as =.tikz= files - Allow =latexmk= as an option for [[doc:org-latex-pdf-process][org-latex-pdf-process]] - When using =\usepackage[AUTO]{babel}=, AUTO will automatically be replaced with a value compatible with ~org-export-default-language~ or ~LANGUAGE~ keyword. - The dependency on the =latexsym= LaTeX package has been removed, we now use =amssymb= symbols by default instead. *** New functions for paragraph motion The commands =C-down= and =C-up= now invoke special commands that use knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor in a paragraph-like way. *** New entities in =org-entities.el= Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth, dalet, cdots, S (§), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq, leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq, preccurlyeq, succ, succeq, succurlyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho, check, frown, diamond. Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde. *** Anonymous export back-ends ~org-export-create-backend~ can create anonymous export back-ends, which can then be passed to export functions like ~org-export-to-file~, ~org-export-to-buffer~ or ~org-export-as~. It allows for quick translation of Org syntax without the overhead of registering a new back-end. *** New agenda fortnight view The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year views, also a fortnight view covering 14 days. ** New options *** New option [[doc:org-bookmark-names-plist][org-bookmark-names-plist]] This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks. *** New option [[doc:org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties][org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties]] This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation. See http://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html for details. *** New option: [[doc:org-html-link-use-abs-url][org-html-link-use-abs-url]] to force using absolute URLs This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within the =#+OPTIONS= line(s) or within a [[doc:org-publish-project-alist][org-publish-project-alist]]. Setting this option to =t= is needed when the HTML output does not allow relative URLs. For example, the =contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el= library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs, so a combination of =:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url t= is required---see the configuration example in the comment section of =ox-rss.el=. *** New option [[doc:org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd][org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd]] This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks. *** New options [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex][org-babel-latex-htlatex]] and [[doc:org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages][org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages]] This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks. *** New option: [[doc:org-habit-show-done-always-green][org-habit-show-done-always-green]] See [[http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-05/msg00214.html][this message]] from Max Mikhanosha. *** New option: [[doc:org-babel-inline-result-wrap][org-babel-inline-result-wrap]] If you set this to the following : (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$") then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string. *** New option: [[doc:org-special-ctrl-o][org-special-ctrl-o]] This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of =C-o= in tables. ** New contributed packages - =ox-bibtex.el= by Nicolas Goaziou :: an utility to handle BibTeX export to both LaTeX and HTML exports. It uses the [[http://www.lri.fr/~filliatr/bibtex2html/][bibtex2html]] software. - =org-screenshot.el= by Max Mikhanosha :: an utility to handle screenshots easily from Org, using the external tool [[http://freecode.com/projects/scrot][scrot]]. * Version 8.0.1 ** Installation Installation instructions have been updated and simplified. If you have troubles installing or updating Org, focus on these instructions: - when updating via a =.zip/.tar.gz= file, you only need to set the =load-path= in your =.emacs=. Set it before any other Org customization that would call autoloaded Org functions. - when updating by pulling Org's Git repository, make sure to create the correct autoloads. You can do this by running =~$make autoloads= (to only create the autoloads) or by running =~$ make= (to also compile the Emacs lisp files.) =~$make help= and =~$ make helpall= gives you detailed explanations. - when updating through ELPA (either from GNU ELPA or from Org ELPA), you have to install Org's ELPA package in a session where no Org function has been called already. When in doubt, run =M-x org-version RET= and see if you have a mixed-up installation. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Installation for details. ** Incompatible changes Org 8.0 is the most disruptive major version of Org. If you configured export options, you will have to update some of them. If you used =#+ATTR_*= keywords, the syntax of the attributes changed and you will have to update them. Below is a list of changes for which you need to take action. See http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html for the most recent version of this list and for detailed instructions on how to migrate. **** New export engine Org 8.0 comes with a new export engine written by Nicolas Goaziou. This export engine relies on ~org-element.el~ (Org's syntax parser), which was already in Org's core. This new export engine triggered the rewriting of /all/ export back-ends. The most visible change is the export dispatcher, accessible through the keybinding =C-c C-e=. By default, this menu only shows some of the built-in export formats, but you can add more formats by loading them directly (e.g., =(require 'ox-texinfo)= or by configuring the option [[doc:org-export-backends][org-export-backends]]. More contributed back-ends are available from the =contrib/= directory, the corresponding files start with the =ox-= prefix. If you customized an export back-end (like HTML or LaTeX), you will need to rename some options so that your customization is not lost. Typically, an option starting with =org-export-html-= is now named =org-html-=. See the manual for details and check [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-8.0.html][this Worg page]] for directions. **** New syntax for #+ATTR_HTML/LaTeX/... options : #+ATTR_HTML width="200px" should now be written : #+ATTR_HTML :width 200px Keywords like =#+ATTR_HTML= and =#+ATTR_LaTeX= are defined in their respective back-ends, and the list of supported parameters depends on each backend. See Org's manual for details. **** ~org-remember.el~ has been removed You cannot use =remember.el= anymore to capture notes. Support for remember templates has been obsoleted since long, it is now fully removed. Use =M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET= to import your remember templates into capture templates. **** ~org-jsinfo.el~ has been merged into ~ox-html.el~ If you were requiring ~ox-jsinfo.el~ in your ~.emacs.el~ file, you will have to remove this requirement from your initialization file. **** Note for third-party developers The name of the files for export back-end have changed: we now use the prefix =ox-= for those files (like we use the =ob-= prefix for Babel files.) For example ~org-html.el~ is now ~ox-html.el~. If your code relies on these files, please update the names in your code. **** Packages moved from core to contrib Since packages in Org's core are meant to be part of GNU Emacs, we try to be minimalist when it comes to adding files into core. For 8.0, we moved some contributions into the =contrib/= directory. The rationale for deciding that these files should live in =contrib/= is either because they rely on third-party software that is not included in Emacs, or because they are not targeting a significant user-base. - org-colview-xemacs.el - org-mac-message.el - org-mew.el - org-wl.el - ox-freedmind.el - ox-taskjuggler.el Note that ~ox-freedmind.el~ has been rewritten by Jambunathan, ~org-mew.el~ has been enhanced by Tokuya Kameshima and ~ox-taskjuggler.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou and others. Also, the Taskjuggler exporter now uses TJ3 by default. John Hendy wrote [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler3.html][a tutorial on Worg]] for the TJ3 export. ** New packages in core *** ~ob-makefile.el~ by Eric Schulte and Thomas S. Dye =ob-makefile.el= implements Org Babel support for Makefile tangling. *** ~ox-man.el~ by Luis Anaya =ox-man.el= allows you to export Org files to =man= pages. *** ~ox-md.el~ by Nicolas Goaziou =ox-md.el= allows you to export Org files to Markdown files, using the vanilla [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/][Markdown syntax]]. *** ~ox-texinfo.el~ by Jonathan Leech-Pepin =ox-texinfo.el= allows you to export Org files to [[http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/][Texinfo]] files. ** New packages in contrib *** ~ob-julia.el~ by G.

Combined with the HTML publishing feature, this allows you to build a blog entirely with Org. ** New features *** Export **** New export generic options If you use Org exporter, we advise you to re-read [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Exporting][the manual section about it]]. It has been updated and includes new options. Among the new/updated export options, three are of particular importance: - [[doc:org-export-allow-bind-keywords][org-export-allow-bind-keywords]] :: This option replaces the old option =org-export-allow-BIND= and the default value is =nil=, not =confirm=. You will need to explicitly set this to =t= in your initialization file if you want to allow =#+BIND= keywords. - [[doc:org-export-with-planning][org-export-with-planning]] :: This new option controls the export of =SCHEDULED:, DEADLINE:, CLOSED:= lines, and planning information is now skipped by default during export. This use to be the job of [[doc:org-export-with-timestamps][org-export-with-timestamps]], but this latter option has been given a new role: it controls the export of /standalone time-stamps/. When set to =nil=, Org will not export active and inactive time-stamps standing on a line by themselves or within a paragraph that only contains time-stamps. To check if an option has been introduced or its default value changed in Org 8.0, do =C-h v [option] RET= and check if the documentation says that the variable has been introduced (or changed) in version 24.4 of Emacs. **** Enhanced default stylesheet for the HTML exporter See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-style-default][org-html-style-default]]. **** New tags, classes and ids for the HTML exporter See the new default value of [[doc:org-html-divs][org-html-divs]]. **** Support for tikz pictures in LaTeX export **** ~org-man.el~: New export function for "man" links **** ~org-docview.el~: New export function for docview links *** Structure editing **** =C-u C-u M-RET= inserts a heading at the end of the parent subtree **** Cycling to the =CONTENTS= view keeps inline tasks folded [[doc:org-cycle-hook][org-cycle-hook]] as a new function [[doc:org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks][org-cycle-hide-inline-tasks]] which prevents the display of inline tasks when showing the content of a subtree. **** =C-c -= in a region makes a list item for each line This is the opposite of the previous behavior, where =C-c -= on a region would create one item for the whole region, and where =C-u C-c -= would create an item for each line. Now =C-c -= on the selected region creates an item per line, and =C-u C-c -= creates a single item for the whole region. **** When transposing words, markup characters are now part of the words In Emacs, you can transpose words with =M-t=. Transposing =*these* _words__= will preserve markup. **** New command [[doc:org-set-property-and-value][org-set-property-and-value]] bound to =C-c C-x P= This command allows you to quickly add both the property and its value. It is useful in buffers where there are many properties and where =C-c C-x p= can slow down the flow of editing too much. **** New commands [[doc:org-next-block][org-next-block]] and [[doc:org-previous-block][org-previous-block]] These commands allow you to go to the previous block (=C-c M-b= or the speedy key =B=) or to the next block (=C-c M-f= or the speedy key =F=.) **** New commands [[doc:org-drag-line-forward][org-drag-line-forward]] and [[doc:org-drag-line-backward][org-drag-line-backward]] These commands emulate the old behavior of =M-= and =M-= but are now bound to =S-M-= and =S-M-= respectively, since =M-= and =M-= now drag the whole element at point (a paragraph, a table, etc.) forward and backward. **** When a list item has a checkbox, inserting a new item uses a checkbox too **** When sorting entries/items, only the description of links is considered Now Org will sort this list : - [[http://abc.org][B]] : - [[http://def.org][A]] like this: : - [[http://def.org][A]] : - [[http://abc.org][B]] by comparing the descriptions, not the links. Same when sorting headlines instead of list items. **** New option =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= For example, setting this option to "^;;; " in Emacs lisp files and using =orgstruct-mode= in those files will allow you to cycle through visibility states as if lines starting with ";;; *..." where headlines. In general, you want to set =orgstruct-heading-prefix-regexp= as a file local variable. **** New behavior of [[doc:org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift][org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift]] The default is now to ask for a time-shift only when there is a time-stamp. When called with a universal prefix argument =C-u=, it will not ask for a time-shift even if there is a time-stamp. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree][org-agenda-restriction-lock-highlight-subtree]] This defaults to =t= so that the whole subtree is highlighted when you restrict the agenda view to it with =C-c C-x <= (or the speed command =<=). The default setting helps ensuring that you are not adding tasks after the restricted region. If you find this highlighting too intrusive, set this option to =nil=. **** New option [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] When switching back from a =DONE= keyword to a =TODO= keyword, Org now removes the =CLOSED= planning information, if any. It also removes this information when going back to a non-TODO state (e.g., with =C-c C-t SPC=). If you want to keep the =CLOSED= planning information when removing the TODO keyword, set [[doc:org-closed-keep-when-no-todo][org-closed-keep-when-no-todo]] to =t=. **** New option [[doc:org-image-actual-width][org-image-actual-width]] This option allows you to change the width of in-buffer displayed images. The default is to use the actual width of the image, but you can use a fixed value for all images, or fall back on an attribute like : #+attr_html: :width 300px *** Scheduled/deadline **** Implement "delay" cookies for scheduled items If you want to delay the display of a scheduled task in the agenda, you can now use a delay cookie like this: =SCHEDULED: <2004-12-25 Sat -2d>=. The task is still scheduled on the 25th but will appear in your agenda starting from two days later (i.e. from March 27th.) Imagine for example that your co-workers are not done in due time and tell you "we need two more days". In that case, you may want to delay the display of the task in your agenda by two days, but you still want the task to appear as scheduled on March 25th. In case the task contains a repeater, the delay is considered to affect all occurrences; if you want the delay to only affect the first scheduled occurrence of the task, use =--2d= instead. See [[doc:org-scheduled-delay-days][org-scheduled-delay-days]] and [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-delay-if-deadline]] for details on how to control this globally or per agenda. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-s= will insert a delay cookie for scheduled tasks See the previous section for why delay cookies may be useful. **** Use =C-u C-u C-c C-d= will insert a warning delay for deadline tasks =C-u C-u C-c C-d= now inserts a warning delay to deadlines. *** Calendar, diary and appts **** New variable [[doc:org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map][org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map]] By default, this new local map uses "." to go to today's date, like in the normal =M-x calendar RET=. If you want to deactivate this and to reassign the "@" key to =calendar-goto-today=, use this: #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp ;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar: (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil) ;; Bind "@" to calendar-goto-today': (define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd "@") (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today)))) #+END_SRC **** In Org's calendar, =!= displays diary entries of the date at point This is useful when you want to check if you don't already have an appointment when setting new ones with =C-c .= or =C-c s=. =!= will call =diary-view-entries= and display the diary in a separate buffer. **** [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]]: only keep the descriptions of links [[doc:org-diary][org-diary]] returns diary information from Org files, but it returns it in a diary buffer, not in an Org mode buffer. When links are displayed, only show their description, not the full links. *** Agenda **** New agenda type =agenda*= and entry types =:scheduled* :deadline*= When defining agenda custom commands, you can now use =agenda*=: this will list entries that have both a date and a time. This is useful when you want to build a list of appointments. You can also set [[doc:org-agenda-entry-types][org-agenda-entry-types]] either globally or locally in each agenda custom command and use =:timestamp*= and/or =:deadline*= there. Another place where this is useful is your =.diary= file: : %%(org-diary :scheduled*) ~/org/rdv.org This will list only entries from =~/org/rdv.org= that are scheduled with a time value (i.e. appointments). **** New agenda sorting strategies [[doc:org-agenda-sorting-strategy][org-agenda-sorting-strategy]] allows these new sorting strategies: | Strategy | Explanations | |----------------+------------------------------------------| | timestamp-up | Sort by any timestamp, early first | | timestamp-down | Sort by any timestamp, late first | | scheduled-up | Sort by scheduled timestamp, early first | | scheduled-down | Sort by scheduled timestamp, late first | | deadline-up | Sort by deadline timestamp, early first | | deadline-down | Sort by deadline timestamp, late first | | ts-up | Sort by active timestamp, early first | | ts-down | Sort by active timestamp, late first | | tsia-up | Sort by inactive timestamp, early first | | tsia-down | Sort by inactive timestamp, late first | **** New options to limit the number of agenda entries You can now limit the number of entries in an agenda view. This is different from filters: filters only /hide/ the entries in the agenda, while limits are set while generating the list of agenda entries. These new options are available: - [[doc:org-agenda-max-entries][org-agenda-max-entries]] :: limit by number of entries. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] :: limit by number of TODOs. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-tags][org-agenda-max-tags]] :: limit by number of tagged entries. - [[doc:org-agenda-max-effort][org-agenda-max-effort]] :: limit by effort (minutes). For example, if you locally set [[doc:org-agenda-max-todos][org-agenda-max-todos]] to 3 in an agenda view, the agenda will be limited to the first three todos. Other entries without a TODO keyword or beyond the third TODO headline will be ignored. When setting a limit (e.g. about an effort's sum), the default behavior is to exclude entries that cannot be checked against (e.g. entries that have no effort property.) To include other entries too, you can set the limit to a negative number. For example =(setq org-agenda-max-tags -3)= will not show the fourth tagged headline (and beyond), but it will also show non-tagged headlines. **** =~= in agenda view sets temporary limits You can hit =~= in the agenda to temporarily set limits: this will regenerate the agenda as if the limits were set. This is useful for example when you want to only see a list of =N= tasks, or a list of tasks that take only =N= minutes. **** "=" in agenda view filters by regular expressions You can now filter agenda entries by regular expressions using ~=~. =C-u == will filter entries out. Regexp filters are cumulative. You can set [[doc:org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset][org-agenda-regexp-filter-preset]] to suit your needs in each agenda view. **** =|= in agenda view resets all filters Since it's common to combine tag filters, category filters, and now regexp filters, there is a new command =|= to reset all filters at once. **** Allow writing an agenda to an =.org= file You can now write an agenda view to an =.org= file. It copies the headlines and their content (but not subheadings) into the new file. This is useful when you want to quickly share an agenda containing the full list of notes. **** New commands to drag an agenda line forward (=M-=) or backward (=M-=) It sometimes handy to move agenda lines around, just to quickly reorganize your tasks, or maybe before saving the agenda to a file. Now you can use =M-= and =M-= to move the line forward or backward. This does not persist after a refresh of the agenda, and this does not change the =.org= files who contribute to the agenda. **** Use =%b= for displaying "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] now allows to use a =%b= formatter to tell Org to display "breadcrumbs" in the agenda view. This is useful when you want to display the task hierarchy in your agenda. **** Use =%l= for displaying the headline's level in the agenda view [[doc:org-agenda-prefix-format][org-agenda-prefix-format]] allows to use a =%l= formatter to tell Org to display entries with additional spaces corresponding to their level in the outline tree. **** [[doc:org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] will ask before overwriting an existing file =M-x org-agenda-write RET= (or =C-c C-w= from an agenda buffer) used to overwrite preexisting file with the same name without confirmation. It now asks for a confirmation. **** New commands =M-m= and =M-*= to toggle (all) mark(s) for bulk action - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle][org-agenda-bulk-toggle]] :: this command is bound to =M-m= and toggles the mark of the entry at point. - [[doc:org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all][org-agenda-bulk-toggle-all]] :: this command is bound to =M-*= and toggles all the marks in the current agenda. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level][org-agenda-search-view-max-outline-level]] This option sets the maximum outline level to display in search view. E.g. when this is set to 1, the search view will only show headlines of level 1. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds][org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds]] This allows to compare times using seconds instead of days when honoring options like =org-agenda-todo-ignore-*= in the agenda display. **** New option [[doc:org-agenda-entry-text-leaders][org-agenda-entry-text-leaders]] This allows you to get rid of the ">" character that gets added in front of entries excerpts when hitting =E= in the agenda view. **** New formatting string for past deadlines in [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]] The default formatting for past deadlines is ="%2d d. ago: "=, which makes it explicit that the deadline is in the past. You can configure this via [[doc:org-agenda-deadline-leaders][org-agenda-deadline-leaders]]. Note that the width of the formatting string is important to keep the agenda alignment clean. **** New allowed value =repeated-after-deadline= for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] When [[doc:org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown]] is set to =repeated-after-deadline=, the agenda will skip scheduled items if they are repeated beyond the current deadline. **** New option for [[doc:org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled][org-agenda-skip-deadline-prewarning-if-scheduled]] This variable may be set to nil, t, the symbol pre-scheduled', or a number which will then give the number of days before the actual deadline when the prewarnings should resume. The symbol pre-scheduled' eliminates the deadline prewarning only prior to the scheduled date. Read the full docstring for details. **** [[doc:org-class][org-class]] now supports holiday strings in the skip-weeks parameter For example, this task will now be skipped only on new year's day: : * Task : <%%(org-class 2012 1 1 2013 12 12 2 "New Year's Day")> *** Capture **** Allow =C-1= as a prefix for [[doc:org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] and [[doc:org-capture][org-capture]] With a =C-1= prefix, the capture mechanism will use the =HH:MM= value at point (if any) or the current =HH:MM= time as the default time for the capture template. **** Expand keywords within %(sexp) placeholder in capture templates If you use a =%:keyword= construct within a =%(sexp)= construct, Org will expand the keywords before expanding the =%(sexp)=. **** Allow to contextualize capture (and agenda) commands by checking the name of the buffer [[doc:org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] and [[doc:org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]] allow you to define what capture templates and what agenda commands should be available in various contexts. It is now possible for the context to check against the name of the buffer. *** Tag groups Using =#+TAGS: { Tag1 : Tag2 Tag3 }= will define =Tag1= as a /group tag/ (note the colon after =Tag1=). If you search for =Tag1=, it will return headlines containing either =Tag1=, =Tag2= or =Tag3= (or any combination of those tags.) You can use group tags for sparse tree in an Org buffer, for creating agenda views, and for filtering. See http://orgmode.org/org.html#Tag-groups for details. *** Links **** =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will ignore non-core link functions Org knows how to store links from Org buffers, from info files and from other Emacs buffers. Org can be taught how to store links from any buffer through new link protocols (see [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Adding-hyperlink-types]["Adding hyperlink types"]] in the manual.) Sometimes you want Org to ignore added link protocols and store the link as if the protocol was not known. You can now do this with =C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET=. **** =C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= on an active region will store links for each lines Imagine for example that you want to store a link for every message in a Gnus summary buffer. In that case =C-x h C-u C-u C-u M-x org-store-link RET= will store a link for every line (i.e. message) if the region is active. **** =C-c C-M-l= will add a default description for links which don't have one =C-c C-M-l= inserts all stored links. If a link does not have a description, this command now adds a default one, so that we are not mixing with-description and without-description links when inserting them. **** No curly braces to bracket links within internal links When storing a link to a headline like : * See [[http://orgmode.org][Org website]] [[doc:org-store-link][org-store-link]] used to convert the square brackets into curly brackets. It does not anymore, taking the link description or the link path, when there is no description. *** Table **** Switching between #+TBLFM lines If you have several =#+TBLFM= lines below a table, =C-c C-c= on a line will apply the formulas from this line, and =C-c C-c= on another line will apply those other formulas. **** You now use "nan" for empty fields in Calc formulas If empty fields are of interest, it is recommended to reread the section [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Formula-syntax-for-Calc][3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc]] of the manual because the description for the mode strings has been clarified and new examples have been added towards the end. **** Handle localized time-stamps in formulas evaluation If your =LOCALE= is set so that Org time-stamps use another language than english, and if you make time computations in Org's table, it now works by internally converting the time-stamps with a temporary =LOCALE=C= before doing computation. **** New lookup functions There are now three lookup functions: - [[doc:org-loopup-first][org-loopup-first]] - [[doc:org-loopup-last][org-loopup-last]] - [[doc:org-loopup-all][org-loopup-all]] See [[http://orgmode.org/org.html#Lookup-functions][the manual]] for details. *** Startup keywords These new startup keywords are now available: | Startup keyword | Option | |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------| | =#+STARTUP: logdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer t)= | | =#+STARTUP: nologdrawer= | =(setq org-log-into-drawer nil)= | |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------| | =#+STARTUP: logstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed t)= | | =#+STARTUP: nologstatesreversed= | =(setq org-log-states-order-reversed nil)= | |----------------------------------+---------------------------------------------| | =#+STARTUP: latexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview t)= | | =#+STARTUP: nolatexpreview= | =(setq org-startup-with-latex-preview nil)= | *** Clocking **** New option [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] E.g. if [[doc:org-clock-rounding-minutes][org-clock-rounding-minutes]] is set to 5, time is 14:47 and you clock in: then the clock starts at 14:45. If you clock out within the next 5 minutes, the clock line will be removed; if you clock out 8 minutes after your clocked in, the clock out time will be 14:50. **** New option [[doc:org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations][org-time-clocksum-use-effort-durations]] When non-nil, =C-c C-x C-d= uses effort durations. E.g., by default, one day is considered to be a 8 hours effort, so a task that has been clocked for 16 hours will be displayed as during 2 days in the clock display or in the clocktable. See [[doc:org-effort-durations][org-effort-durations]] on how to set effort durations and [[doc:org-time-clocksum-format][org-time-clocksum-format]] for more on time clock formats. **** New option [[doc:org-clock-x11idle-program-name][org-clock-x11idle-program-name]] This allows to set the name of the program which prints X11 idle time in milliseconds. The default is to use =x11idle=. **** New option [[doc:org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time][org-use-last-clock-out-time-as-effective-time]] When non-nil, use the last clock out time for [[doc:org-todo][org-todo]].

When [[doc:org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay][org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay]] is set to a number of minutes =N=, the base Org buffer will be saved after this number of minutes of idle time. **** New =:post= header argument post-processes results This header argument may be used to pass the results of the current code block through another code block for post-processing. See the manual for a usage example. **** Commented out heading are ignored when collecting blocks for tangling If you comment out a heading (with =C-c ;= anywhere on the heading or in the subtree), code blocks from within this heading are now ignored when collecting blocks for tangling. **** New option [[doc:org-babel-hash-show-time][org-babel-hash-show-time]] to show a time-stamp in the result hash **** Do not ask for confirmation if cached value is current Do not run [[doc:org-babel-confirm-evaluate][org-babel-confirm-evaluate]] if source block has a cache and the cache value is current as there is no evaluation involved in this case. **** =ob-sql.el= and =ob-python.el= have been improved. **** New Babel files only need to =(require 'ob)= When writing a new Babel file, you now only need to use =(require 'ob)= instead of requiring each Babel library one by one. *** Faces - Org now fontifies radio link targets by default - In the agenda, use [[doc:org-todo-keyword-faces][org-todo-keyword-faces]] to highlight selected TODO keywords - New face [[doc:org-priority][org-priority]], enhanced fontification of priority cookies in agenda - New face [[doc:org-tag-group][org-tag-group]] for group tags ** Miscellaneous - New speedy key =s= pour [[doc:org-narrow-to-subtree][org-narrow-to-subtree]] - Handling of [[doc:org-html-table-row][org-html-table-row]] has been updated (incompatible change) - [[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]] - Support using =git-annex= with Org attachments - org-protocol: Pass optional value using query in url to capture from protocol - When the refile history is empty, use the current filename as default - When you cannot change the TODO state of a task, Org displays the blocking task - New option [[doc:org-mobile-allpriorities][org-mobile-allpriorities]] - org-bibtex.el now use =visual-line-mode= instead of the deprecated =longlines-mode= - [[doc:org-format-latex-options][org-format-latex-options]] allows to set the foreground/background colors automatically - New option [[doc:org-archive-file-header-format][org-archive-file-header-format]] - New "neg" entity in [[doc:org-entities][org-entities]] - New function [[doc:org-docview-export][org-docview-export]] to export docview links - New =:eps= header argument for ditaa code blocks - New option [[doc:org-gnus-no-server][org-gnus-no-server]] to start Gnus with =gnus-no-server= - Org is now distributed with =htmlize.el= version 1.43 - ~org-drill.el~ has been updated to version 2.3.7 - ~org-mac-iCal.el~ now supports MacOSX version up to 10.8 - Various improvements to ~org-contacts.el~ and =orgpan.el= ** Outside Org *** Spanish translation of the Org guide by David Arroyo Menéndez David (and others) translated the Org compact guide in spanish: You can read the [[http://orgmode.org/worg/orgguide/orgguide.es.pdf][PDF guide]]. *** ~poporg.el~ and ~outorg.el~ Two new libraries (~poporg.el~ by François Pinard and ~outorg.el~ by Thorsten Jolitz) now enable editing of comment-sections from source-code buffers in temporary Org-mode buffers, making the full editing power of Org-mode available. ~outorg.el~ comes together with ~outshine.el~ and ~navi-mode.el~, two more libraries by Thorsten Jolitz with the goal to give source-code buffers the /look & feel/ of Org-mode buffers while greatly improving navigation and structure editing. A detailed description can be found here: http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-outside-org.html Here are two screencasts demonstrating Thorsten's tools: - [[http://youtu.be/nqE6YxlY0rw]["Modern conventions for Emacs Lisp files"]] - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3DII-xYw5VGFM][Exploring Bernt Hansen's Org-mode tutorial with 'navi-mode']] *** MobileOrg for iOS MobileOrg for iOS back in the App Store The 1.6.0 release was focused on the new Dropbox API and minor bug fixes but also includes a new ability to launch in Capture mode. Track development and contribute [[https://github.com/MobileOrg/mobileorg/issues][on github]]. * Version 7.9.3 ** New option [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]] [[doc::org-use-tag-inheritance][org-use-tag-inheritance]] controls whether tags are inherited when org-tags-view is called (either in =tags=, =tags-tree= or =tags-todo= agenda views.) When generating other agenda types such as =agenda=, =todo= and =todo-tree=, tags inheritance is not used when selecting the entries to display. Still, you might want to have all tag information correct in the agenda buffer, e.g. for tag filtering. In that case, add the agenda type to this variable. Setting this variable to nil should considerably speeds up the agenda generation. Note that the default was to display inherited tags in the agenda lines even if org-use-tag-inheritance' was nil. The default is now to *never* display inherited tags in agenda lines, but to /know/ about them when the agenda type is listed in [[doc::org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance][org-agenda-use-tag-inheritance]]. ** New default value nil for [[doc::org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks][org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks]] Using nil' as the default value speeds up the agenda generation. You can hit #' (or C-u #') in agenda buffers to temporarily dim (or turn invisible) blocked tasks. ** New speedy keys for [[doc::org-speed-commands-default][org-speed-commands-default]] You can now use :' (instead of ;') for setting tags---this is consistent with using the :' key in agenda view. You can now use =' for [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]]. ** =org-float= is now obsolete, use =diary-float= instead ** No GPL manual anymore There used to be a GPL version of the Org manual, but this is not the case anymore, the Free Software Foundation does not permit this. The GNU FDL license is now included in the manual directly. ** Enhanced compatibility with Emacs 22 and XEmacs Thanks to Achim for his work on enhancing Org's compatibility with various Emacsen. Things may not be perfect, but Org should work okay in most environments. * Version 7.9.2 ** New ELPA repository for Org packages You can now add the Org ELPA repository like this: #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/") t) #+END_SRC It contains both the =org-*.tar= package (the core Org distribution, also available through http://elpa.gnu.org) and the =org-plus*.tar= package (the extended Org distribution, with non-GNU packages from the =contrib/= directory.) See http://orgmode.org/elpa/ ** Overview of the new keybindings | Keybinding | Speedy | Command | |-----------------+--------+-----------------------------| | =C-c C-x C-z= | | [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] | | =C-c C-x C-q= | | [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] | | =C-c C-x C-x= | | [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] | | =M-h= | | [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] | | =*= | | [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] | | =C-c C-M-l= | | [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]] | | =C-c C-x C-M-v= | | [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]] | | =C-c C-x E= | =E= | [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]] | | | =#= | [[doc::org-toggle-comment][org-toggle-comment]] | | | =:= | [[doc::org-columns][org-columns]] | | | =W= | Set =APPT_WARNTIME= | | =k= | | [[doc::org-agenda-capture][org-agenda-capture]] | | C-c , | , | [[doc::org-priority][org-priority]] | ** New package and Babel langage *** =org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org =org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html][Eshell]]. *** Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see ob-scala.el) *** Support for execution of IO code blocks (see ob-io.el) ** Incompatible changes - If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use [[doc::org-agenda-write][org-agenda-write]] from now on. - If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat= instead. - =org-link-to-org-use-id= has been renamed to =org-id-link-to-org-use-id= and its default value is nil. The previous default was =create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id=. ** New features and user-visible changes *** Org Element =org-element.el= is a toolbox for parsing and analyzing "elements" in an Org-mode buffer. This has been written by Nicolas Goaziou and has been tested for quite some time. It is now part of Org's core and many core functions rely on this package. Two functions might be particularly handy for users: =org-element-at-point= and =org-element-context=. See the docstrings for more details. Below is a list of editing and navigating commands that now rely on =org-element.el=. **** [[doc::org-fill-paragraph][org-fill-paragraph]] has been completely rewritten The filling mechanisms now rely on org-element, trying to do the right thing on each element in various contexts. E.g. filling in a list item will preserve indentation; filling in message-mode will fall back on the relevant filling functions; etc. **** [[doc::org-metaup][org-metaup]] and [[doc::org-metadown][org-metadown]] will drag the element backward/forward If you want to get the old behavior (i.e. moving a line up and down), you can first select the line as an active region, then =org-metaup= or =org-metadown= to move the region backward or forward. This also works with regions bigger than just one line. **** [[doc::org-up-element][org-up-element]] and [[doc::org-down-element][org-down-element]] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=) This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements. **** [[doc::org-backward-element][org-backward-element]] and [[doc::org-forward-element][org-forward-element]] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=) This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of elements. **** [[doc::org-narrow-to-element][org-narrow-to-element]] will narrow to the element at point **** [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] will mark the element at point This command is bound to =M-h= and will mark the element at point. If the point is at a paragraph, it will mark the paragraph. If the point is at a list item, it will mark the list item. Etc. Note that if point is at the beginning of a list, it will mark the whole list. To mark a subtree, you can either use =M-h= on the headline (since there is no ambiguity about the element you're at) or [[doc::org-mark-subtree][org-mark-subtree]] (=C-c @=) anywhere in the subtree. Invoking [[doc::org-mark-element][org-mark-element]] repeatedly will try to mark the next element on top of the previous one(s). E.g. hitting =M-h= twice on a headline will mark the current subtree and the next one on the same level. *** Org Agenda **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] There is a new option =org-agenda-sticky= which enables "sticky" agendas. Sticky agendas remain opened in the background so that you don't need to regenerate them each time you hit the corresponding keystroke. This is a big time saver. When [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is =non-nil=, the agenda buffer will be named using the agenda key and its description. In sticky agendas, the =q= key will just bury the agenda buffers and further agenda commands will show existing buffer instead of generating new ones. If [[doc::org-agenda-sticky][org-agenda-sticky]] is set to =nil=, =q= will kill the single agenda buffer. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts][org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]] Setting this option allows you to define specific context where agenda commands should be available from. For example, when set to this value #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt")))) #+END_SRC then the =p= agenda command will only be available from buffers visiting *.txt files. See the docstring and the manual for more details on how to use this. **** Changes in bulk actions The set of commands starting with =k ...= as been deleted and the features have been merged into the "bulk action" feature. After you marked some entries in the agenda, if you call =B s=, the agenda entries will be rescheduled using the date at point if on a date header. If you are on an entry with a timestamp, you will be prompted for a date to reschedule your marked entries to, using the timestamp at point as the default prompt. You can now use =k= to capture the marked entry and use the date at point as an overriding date for the capture template. To bind this behavior to =M-x org-capture RET= (or its keybinding), set the new option [[doc::org-capture-use-agenda-date][org-capture-use-agenda-date]] to =t=. **** =N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item **** New command [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-all][org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]] to mark all items This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode. There is also a new option [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-mark-char][org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]] to set the character to use as a mark for bulk actions. **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-persistent-marks][org-agenda-persistent-marks]] When set to =non-nil=, marks will remain visible after a bulk action. You can temporarily toggle this by pressing =p= when invoking [[doc::org-agenda-bulk-action][org-agenda-bulk-action]]. Marks are deleted if your rebuild the agenda buffer or move to another date/span (e.g. with =f= or =w=). **** New option [[doc::org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown][org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]] =Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because of deadline. In the agenda of today, an entry can show up multiple times because it has both a plain timestamp and has a nearby deadline. When this variable is t, then only the deadline is shown and the fact that the entry has a timestamp for or including today is not shown. When this variable is =nil=, the entry will be shown several times. **** New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions See the [[http://orgmode.org/w/?p%3Dorg-mode.git%3Ba%3Dcommit%3Bh%3Df426da][git commit]] for more explanations. **** Allow category filtering in the agenda You can now filter the agenda by category. Pressing "<" will filter by the category of the item on the current line, and pressing "<" again will remove the filter. You can combine tag filters and category filters. You can use =org-agenda-category-filter= in your custom agenda views and =org-agenda-category-filter-preset= in your main configuration. See also the new command [[doc::org-agenda-filter-by-top-category][org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]]: hitting =^= will filter by "Top" category: only show entries that are of the same category than the Top category of the entry at point. *** Org Links **** Inserting links When inserting links through [[doc::org-insert-link][org-insert-link]], the description is now displayed first, followed by the literal link, as the description is often more useful when you look for the link you want to insert. Completion now complete both literal links and description. If you complete a description, the literal link and its description will be inserted directly, whereas when you complete the literal link, you will be prompted for a description (as with Org 7.8.) In the completion buffer, links to the current buffer are now highlighted. **** New templates =%h= and =%(sexp)= for abbreviated links On top of =%s= template, which is replaced by the link tag in abbreviated links, you can now use =%h= (which does the same than =%s= but does not hexify the tag) and =%(sexp)= (which can run a function that takes the tag as its own argument.) **** New link type =help= You can now create links from =help= buffers. For example, if you request help for the command [[doc::org-agenda][org-agenda]] with =C-h f org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let you go back to the same buffer. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-all-links][org-insert-all-links]] This will insert all links as list items. With a universal prefix argument, links will not be deleted from the variable =org-stored-links=. This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=. **** New option [[doc::org-url-hexify-p][org-url-hexify-p]] When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified. **** Org can now open multiple shell links **** New option [[doc::org-doi-server-url][org-doi-server-url]] to specify an alternate DOI server **** RET now follows time stamps links *** Org Editing **** [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, using [[doc::org-todo][org-todo]] or =org-archive-*= commands in the active region will loop over headlines. This is handy if you want to set the TODO keyword for several items, or archive them quickly. **** You can now set tags for headlines in a region If [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is =non-nil=, then selecting the region and hitting =C-c C-q= will set the tags for all headlines in the region. **** New command [[doc::org-insert-drawer][org-insert-drawer]] to insert a drawer interactively **** Comments start with "^[ \t]*# " anywhere on a line Note that the space after the hashtag is mandatory. Comments with "^#+" are not supported anymore. **** New speed key =#= to toggle the COMMENT cookie on a headline **** =indent-region-function= is now set to [[doc::org-indent-region][org-indent-region]] =C-M-\= should now produce useful results. You can unindent the buffer with [[doc::org-unindent-buffer][org-unindent-buffer]]. **** New option [[doc::org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree][org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]] When =non-nil=, =S-M-= will promote level-1 subtrees containing other subtrees. The level-1 headline will be commented out. You can revert to the previous state with =M-x undo RET=. *** Org Clock **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [[doc::org-clock-resolve][org-clock-resolve]] **** New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [[doc::org-clock-cancel][org-clock-cancel]] **** New command [[doc::org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] to clock in the last clocked item This command is bound to =C-c C-x C-x= and will clock in the last clocked entry, if any. **** =C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-out][org-clock-out]] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to **** =S-M-= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock **** New option [[doc::org-clock-continuously][org-clock-continuously]] When set to =nil=, clocking in a task will first try to find the last clocked out task and restart from when that task was clocked out. You can temporarily activate continuous clocking with =C-u C-u C-u M-x= [[doc::org-clock-in][org-clock-in]] =RET= (three universal prefix arguments) and =C-u C-u M-x= [[org-clock-in-last][org-clock-in-last]] =RET= (two universal prefix arguments). **** New option [[doc::org-clock-frame-title-format][org-clock-frame-title-format]] This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking in. **** New options for controlling the clockreport display [[doc::org-clock-file-time-cell-format][org-clock-file-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the file time cells in clockreport. [[doc::org-clock-total-time-cell-format][org-clock-total-time-cell-format]]: Format string for the total time cells in clockreport. **** New options for controlling the clock/timer display [[doc::org-clock-clocked-in-display][org-clock-clocked-in-display]]: control whether the current clock is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title. [[doc::org-timer-display][org-timer-display]]: control whether the current timer is displayed in the mode line and/or frame title. This allows the clock and timer to be displayed in the frame title instead of, or as well as, the mode line. This is useful for people with limited space in the mode line but with ample space in the frame title. *** Org Appearance **** New option [[doc::org-custom-properties][org-custom-properties]] The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn on/off with [[doc::org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility][org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]]. This might be useful for properties used by third-part tools or that you don't want to see temporarily. **** New command [[doc::org-redisplay-inline-images][org-redisplay-inline-images]] This will redisplay all images. It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=. **** New entities in =org-entities.el= There are these new entities: : ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "˜" "~" "~" "~") : ("slash" "/" nil "/" "/" "/" "/") : ("plus" "+" nil "+" "+" "+" "+") : ("under" "\\_" nil "_" "_" "_" "_") : ("equal" "=" nil "=" "=" "=" "=") : ("asciicirc" "\\textasciicircum{}" nil "^" "^" "^" "^") **** New face =org-list-dt= for definition terms **** New face =org-date-selected= for the selected calendar day **** New face value for =org-document-title= The face is back to a normal height. *** Org Columns **** New speed command =:= to activate the column view **** New special property =CLOCKSUM_T= to display today's clocked time You can use =CLOCKSUM_T= the same way you use =CLOCKSUM=. It will display the time spent on tasks for today only. **** Use the =:COLUMNS:= property in columnview dynamic blocks If the =:COLUMNS:= is set in a subtree, the columnview dynamic block will use its value as the column format. **** Consider inline tasks when computing a sum *** Org Dates and Time Stamps **** Enhanced [[doc::org-sparse-tree][org-sparse-tree]] =C-c /= can now check for time ranges. When checking for dates with =C-c /= it is useful to change the type of dates that you are interested in. You can now do this interactively with =c= after =C-c /= and/or by setting [[doc::org-sparse-tree-default-date-type][org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]] to the default value you want. **** Support for hourly repeat cookies You can now use : SCHEDULED: <2012-08-20 lun. 08:00 +1h> if you want to add an hourly repeater to an entry. **** =C-u C-u C-c .= inserts a time-stamp with no prompt **** When (setq [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] 'time), accept days in the prompt "8am Wed" and "Wed 8am" are now acceptable values when entering a date from the prompt. If [[doc::org-read-date-prefer-future][org-read-date-prefer-future]] is set to =time=, this will produce the expected prompt indication. **** New option [[doc::org-datetree-add-timestamp][org-datetree-add-timestamp]] When set to =non-nil=, datetree entries will also have a timestamp. This is useful if you want to see these entries in a sparse tree with =C-c /=. *** Org Capture **** New command [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] M-x [[doc::org-capture-string][org-capture-string]] RET will prompt for a string and a capture template. The string will be used as an annotation for the template. This is useful when capturing in batch mode as it lets you define the content of the template without being in Emacs. **** New option [[doc::org-capture-templates-contexts][org-capture-templates-contexts]] Setting this option allows you to define specific context where capture templates should be available from. For example, when set to this value #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (setq org-capture-templates-contexts '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode")))) #+END_SRC then the =c= capture template will only be available from =message-mode= buffers. See the docstring and the manual for more details on how to use this. **** New =%l= template to insert the literal link **** New option [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] Org used to automatically add a bookmark with capture a note. You can now turn this on by setting [[doc::org-capture-bookmark][org-capture-bookmark]] to =nil=. **** Expand =%= escape sequences into text entered for 'th =%^{PROMPT}= escape See the manual for more explanations. **** More control over empty lines You can use =:empty-lines-before= and =:empty-lines-after= to control the insertion of empty lines. Check the manual for more explanations. **** New hook [[doc::org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook][org-capture-prepare-finalize-hook]] This new hook runs before the finalization process starts. *** Org Export **** New functions =orgtbl-to-table.el= and =orgtbl-to-unicode= =orgtbl-to-table.el= convert the table to a =table.el= table, and =orgtbl-to-unicode= will use =ascii-art-to-unicode.el= (when available) to print beautiful tables. **** [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] now a bit clever about the target format When you specify a file name like =table.csv=, [[doc::org-table-export][org-table-export]] will now suggest =orgtbl-to-csv= the default method for exporting the table. **** New option [[doc::org-export-date-timestamp-format][org-export-date-timestamp-format]] The option allows to set a time string format for Org timestamps in the #+DATE option. **** LaTeX: New options for exporting table rules :tstart, :hline and :tend See [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-hline][org-export-latex-tables-hline]] and [[doc::org-export-latex-tables-tend][org-export-latex-tables-tend]]. **** LaTeX: You can now set =:hfmt= from =#+ATTR_LaTeX= **** Beamer: Add support and keybinding for the =exampleblock= environment Add support for these languages in [[doc::org-export-language-setup][org-export-language-setup]]. More languages are always welcome. **** Beamer: New option [[doc::org-beamer-inherited-properties][org-beamer-inherited-properties]] This option allows Beamer export to inherit some properties. Thanks to Carsten for implementing this. **** ODT: Add support for ODT export in org-bbdb.el **** ODT: Add support for indented tables (see [[http://orgmode.org/w/?p%3Dorg-mode.git%3Ba%3Dcommit%3Bh%3De9fd33][this commit]] for details) **** ODT: Improve the conversion from ODT to other formats **** ASCII: Swap the level-1/level-2 characters to underline the headlines **** Support for Chinese, simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian and Japanese **** HTML: New option [[doc::org-export-html-date-format-string][org-export-html-date-format-string]] Format string to format the date and time in HTML export. Thanks to Sébastien Vauban for this patch. *** Org Babel **** New =:results drawer= parameter =:results drawer= replaces =:results wrap=, which is deprecated but still supported. **** =:results org= now put results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block =:results org= used to put results in a =#+BEGIN_ORG= block but it now puts results in a =#+BEGIN_SRC org= block, with comma-escaped lines. =#+BEGIN_ORG= blocks are obsolete. **** Exporting =#+BEGIN_SRC org= blocks exports the code It used to exports the results of the code. *** Miscellaneous **** New menu entry for [[doc::org-refile][org-refile]] **** Allow capturing to encrypted entries If you capture to an encrypted entry, it will be decrypted before inserting the template then re-encrypted after finalizing the capture. **** Inactive timestamps are now handled in tables Calc can do computation on active time-stamps like <2012-09-29 sat.>. Inactive time-stamps in a table's cell are now internally deactivated so that Calc formulas can operate on them. **** [[doc::org-table-number-regexp][org-table-number-regexp]] can now accept comma as decimal mark **** Org allows a new property =APPT_WARNTIME= You can set it with the =W= speedy key or set it manually. When set, exporting to iCalendar and [[doc::org-agenda-to-appt][org-agenda-to-appt]] will use the value of this property as the number of minutes for the warning alarm. **** New command [[doc::org-inc-effort][org-inc-effort]] This will increment the effort value. It is bound to =C-c C-x E= and to =E= as a speedy command. **** Attach: Add support for creating symbolic links =org-attach-method= now supports a new method =lns=, allowing to attach symbolic links. **** Archive: you can now archive to a datetree **** New option [[doc::org-inlinetask-show-first-star][org-inlinetask-show-first-star]] =Non-nil= means display the first star of an inline task as additional marker. When =nil=, the first star is not shown. **** New option [[doc::org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory][org-latex-preview-ltxpng-directory]] This lets you define the path for the =ltxpng/= directory. **** You can now use imagemagick instead of dvipng to preview LaTeX fragments **** You can now turn off [[doc::orgstruct++-mode][orgstruct++-mode]] safely **** =C-u C-c C-c= on list items to add check boxes =C-u C-c C-c= will add an empty check box on a list item. When hit from the top of the list, it will add check boxes for all top level list items. **** =org-list-ending-method= and =org-list-end-regexp= are now obsolete Fall back on using =org-list-end-re= only, which see. **** org-feed.el now expands =%(sexp)= templates **** New option [[doc::org-protocol-data-separator][org-protocol-data-separator]] **** New option [[doc::org-ditaa-jar-option][org-ditaa-jar-option]] to specify the ditaa jar file **** New possible value for [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] When [[doc::org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region][org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]] is set to =start-level=, the command will loop over the active region but will only act upon entries that are of the same level than the first headline in the region. **** New option [[doc::org-habit-show-all-today][org-habit-show-all-today]] When set to =t=, show all (even unscheduled) habits on today's agenda. ** Important bug fixes *** M-TAB on options keywords perform completion correctly again If you hit =M-TAB= on keywords like =#+TITLE=, Org will try to perform completion with meaningful values. *** Add licenses to javascript embedded and external code snippets Embedded javascript code produced when exporting an Org file to HTML is now licensed under GPLv3 (or later), and the copyright is owned by the Free Software Foundation, Inc. The javascript code for embedding MathJax in the browser mentions the MathJax copyright and the Apache 2.0 license. The javascript code for embedding =org-injo.js= in the browser mentions the copyright of Sebastian Rose and the GPLv3 (or later) license. =org-export-html-scripts= is now a variable, so that you can adapt the code and the license to your needs. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html for explanations on why these changes were necessary. * Version 7.8.11 ** Incompatible changes *** Emacs 21 support has been dropped Do not use Org mode 7.xx with Emacs 21, use [[http://orgmode.org/org-6.36c.zip][version 6.36c]] instead. *** XEmacs support requires the XEmacs development version To use Org mode 7.xx with XEmacs, you need to run the developer version of XEmacs. We were about to drop XEmacs support entirely, but Michael Sperber stepped in and made changes to XEmacs that made it easier to keep the support. Thanks to Michael for this last-minute save. *** New keys for TODO sparse trees The key =C-c C-v= is now reserved for Org Babel action. TODO sparse trees can still be made with =C-c / t= (all not-done states) and =C-c / T= (specific states). *** The Agenda =org-agenda-ndays= is now obsolete The variable =org-agenda-ndays= is obsolete - please use =org-agenda-span= instead. Thanks to Julien Danjou for this. *** Changes to the intended use of =org-export-latex-classes= So far this variable has been used to specify the complete header of the LaTeX document, including all the =\usepackage= calls necessary for the document. This setup makes it difficult to maintain the list of packages that Org itself would like to call, for example for the special symbol support it needs. First of all, you can *opt out of this change* in the following way: You can say: /I want to have full control over headers, and I will take responsibility to include the packages Org needs/. If that is what you want, add this to your configuration and skip the rest of this section (except maybe for the description of the =[EXTRA]= place holder): #+begin_src emacs-lisp (setq org-export-latex-default-packages-alist nil org-export-latex-packages-alist nil) #+end_src /Continue to read here if you want to go along with the modified setup./ There are now two variables that should be used to list the LaTeX packages that need to be included in all classes. The header definition in =org-export-latex-classes= should then not contain the corresponding =\usepackage= calls (see below). The two new variables are: 1. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where Org-mode itself puts the packages it needs. Normally you should not change this variable. The only reason to change it anyway is when one of these packages causes a conflict with another package you want to use. Then you can remove that packages and hope that you are not using Org-mode functionality that needs it. 2. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= :: This is the variable where you can put the packages that you'd like to use across all classes. The sequence how these customizations will show up in the LaTeX document are: 1. Header from =org-export-latex-classes= 2. =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist= 3. =org-export-latex-packages-alist= 4. Buffer-specific things set with =#+LaTeX_HEADER:= If you want more control about which segment is placed where, or if you want, for a specific class, have full control over the header and exclude some of the automatic building blocks, you can put the following macro-like place holders into the header: #+begin_example [DEFAULT-PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for default packages [NO-DEFAULT-PACKAGES] do not include any of the default packages [PACKAGES] \usepackage statements for packages [NO-PACKAGES] do not include the packages [EXTRA] the stuff from #+LaTeX_HEADER [NO-EXTRA] do not include #+LaTeX_HEADER stuff #+end_example If you have currently customized =org-export-latex-classes=, you should revise that customization and remove any package calls that are covered by =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. This applies to the following packages: - inputenc - fontenc - fixltx2e - graphicx - longtable - float - wrapfig - soul - t1enc - textcomp - marvosym - wasysym - latexsym - amssymb - hyperref If one of these packages creates a conflict with another package you are using, you can remove it from =org-export-latex-default-packages-alist=. But then you risk that some of the advertised export features of Org will not work properly. You can also consider moving packages that you use in all classes to =org-export-latex-packages-alist=. If necessary, put the place holders so that the packages get loaded in the right sequence. As said above, for backward compatibility, if you omit the place holders, all the variables will dump their content at the end of the header. *** The constant =org-html-entities= is obsolete Its content is now part of the new constant =org-entities=, which is defined in the file org-entities.el. =org-html-entities= was an internal variable, but it is possible that some users did write code using it. *** =org-bbdb-anniversary-format-alist= has changed Please check the docstring and update your settings accordingly. *** Deleted =org-mode-p= This function has been deleted: please update your code. ** Important new features *** New Org to ODT exporter Jambunathan's Org to ODT exporter is now part of Org. To use it, it C-c C-e o' in an Org file. See the documentation for more information on how to customize it. *** org-capture.el is now the default capture system This replaces the earlier system org-remember. The manual only describes org-capture, but for people who prefer to continue to use org-remember, we keep a static copy of the former manual section [[http://orgmode.org/org-remember.pdf][chapter about remember]]. The new system has a technically cleaner implementation and more possibilities for capturing different types of data. See [[http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/26441/focus%3D26441][Carsten's announcement]] for more details. To switch over to the new system: 1. Run : M-x org-capture-import-remember-templates RET to get a translated version of your remember templates into the new variable =org-capture-templates=. This will "mostly" work, but maybe not for all cases. At least it will give you a good place to modify your templates. After running this command, enter the customize buffer for this variable with : M-x customize-variable RET org-capture-templates RET and convince yourself that everything is OK. Then save the customization. 2. Bind the command =org-capture= to a key, similar to what you did with org-remember: : (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture) If your fingers prefer =C-c r=, you can also use this key once you have decided to move over completely to the new implementation. During a test time, there is nothing wrong with using both system in parallel. ** New libraries *** New Org libraries **** org-eshell.el (Konrad Hinsen) Implement links to eshell buffers. **** org-special-blocks (Carsten Dominik) This package generalizes the #+begin_foo and #+end_foo tokens. To use, put the following in your init file: #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE (require 'org-special-blocks) #+END_EXAMPLE The tokens #+begin_center, #+begin_verse, etc. existed previously. This package generalizes them (at least for the LaTeX and html exporters). When a #+begin_foo token is encountered by the LaTeX exporter, it is expanded into \begin{foo}. The text inside the environment is not protected, as text inside environments generally is. When #+begin_foo is encountered by the html exporter, a div with class foo is inserted into the HTML file. It is up to the user to add this class to his or her stylesheet if this div is to mean anything. **** org-taskjuggler.el (Christian Egli) Christian Egli's /org-taskjuggler.el/ module is now part of Org. He also wrote a [[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.php][tutorial]] for it. **** org-ctags.el (Paul Sexton) Targets like =<>= can now be found by Emacs' etag functionality, and Org-mode links can be used to to link to etags, also in non-Org-mode files. For details, see the file /org-ctags.el/. This feature uses a new hook =org-open-link-functions= which will call function to do something special with text links. Thanks to Paul Sexton for this contribution. **** org-docview.el (Jan Böcker) This new module allows links to various file types using docview, where Emacs displays images of document pages. Docview link types can point to a specific page in a document, for example to page 131 of the Org-mode manual: : [[docview:~/.elisp/org/doc/org.pdf::131][Org-Mode Manual]] Thanks to Jan Böcker for this contribution. *** New Babel libraries - ob-picolisp.el (Thorsten Jolitz) - ob-fortran.el (Sergey Litvinov) - ob-shen.el (Eric Schulte) - ob-maxima.el (Eric S Fraga) - ob-java.el (Eric Schulte) - ob-lilypond.el (Martyn Jago) - ob-awk.el (Eric Schulte) ** Other new features and various enhancements *** Hyperlinks **** Org-Bibtex -- major improvements Provides support for managing bibtex bibliographical references data in headline properties. Each headline corresponds to a single reference and the relevant bibliographic meta-data is stored in headline properties, leaving the body of the headline free to hold notes and comments. Org-bibtex is aware of all standard bibtex reference types and fields. The key new functions are - org-bibtex-check :: queries the user to flesh out all required (and with prefix argument optional) bibtex fields available for the specific reference =type= of the current headline. - org-bibtex-create :: Create a new entry at the given level, using org-bibtex-check to flesh out the relevant fields. - org-bibtex-yank :: Yank a bibtex entry on the kill ring as a formatted Org-mode headline into the current buffer - org-bibtex-export-to-kill-ring :: Export the current headline to the kill ring as a formatted bibtex entry. **** org-gnus.el now allows link creation from messages You can now create links from messages. This is particularly useful when the user wants to stored messages that he sends, for later check. Thanks to Ulf Stegemann for the patch. **** Modified link escaping David Maus worked on org-link-escape'. See [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/37888][his message]]: : Percent escaping is used in Org mode to escape certain characters : in links that would either break the parser (e.g. square brackets : in link target oder description) or are not allowed to appear in : a particular link type (e.g. non-ascii characters in a http: : link). : : With this change in place Org will apply percent escaping and : unescaping more consistently especially for non-ascii characters. : Additionally some of the outstanding bugs or glitches concerning : percent escaped links are solved. Thanks a lot to David for this work. **** Make =org-store-link= point to directory in a dired buffer When, in a dired buffer, the cursor is not in a line listing a file, org-store-link' will store a link to the directory. Patch by Stephen Eglen. **** Allow regexps in =org-file-apps= to capture link parameters The way extension regexps in =org-file-apps= are handled has changed. Instead of matching against the file name, the regexps are now matched against the whole link, and you can use grouping to extract link parameters which you can then use in a command string to be executed. For example, to allow linking to PDF files using the syntax =file:/doc.pdf::=, you can add the following entry to org-file-apps: #+begin_example Extension: \.pdf::$$[0-9]+$$\' Command: evince "%s" -p %1 #+end_example Thanks to Jan Böcker for a patch to this effect. *** Dates and time **** Allow relative time when scheduling/adding a deadline You can now use relative duration strings like "-2d" or "++3w" when calling =org-schedule= or =org-deadline=: it will schedule (or set the deadline for) the item respectively two days before today and three weeks after the current timestamp, if any. You can use this programmatically: =(org-schedule nil "+2d")= will work on the current entry. You can also use this while (bulk-)rescheduling and (bulk-)resetting the deadline of (several) items from the agenda. Thanks to Memnon Anon for a heads up about this! **** American-style dates are now understood by =org-read-date= So when you are prompted for a date, you can now answer like this #+begin_example 2/5/3 --> 2003-02-05 2/5 --> -02-05 #+end_example *** Agenda **** =org-agenda-custom-commands= has a default value This option used to be nil' by default. This now has a default value, displaying an agenda and all TODOs. See the docstring for details. Thanks to Carsten for this. **** Improved filtering through =org-agenda-to-appt= The new function allows the user to refine the scope of entries to pass to =org-agenda-get-day-entries= and allows to filter out entries using a function. Thanks to Peter Münster for raising a related issue and to Tassilo Horn for this idea. Also thanks to Peter Münster for [[git:68ffb7a7][fixing a small bug]] in the final implementation. **** Allow ap/pm times in agenda time grid Times in the agenda can now be displayed in am/pm format. See the new variable =org-agenda-timegrid-use-ampm=. Thanks to C. A. Webber for a patch to this effect. **** Agenda: Added a bulk "scattering" command =B S= in the agenda buffer will cause tasks to be rescheduled a random number of days into the future, with 7 as the default. This is useful if you've got a ton of tasks scheduled for today, you realize you'll never deal with them all, and you just want them to be distributed across the next N days. When called with a prefix arg, rescheduling will avoid weekend days. Thanks to John Wiegley for this. *** Exporting **** Simplification of org-export-html-preamble/postamble When set to t', export the preamble/postamble as usual, honoring the =org-export-email/author/creator-info= variables. When set to a formatting string, insert this string. See the docstring of these variable for details about available %-sequences. You can set =:html-preamble= in publishing project in the same way: t' means to honor =:email/creator/author-info=, and a formatting string will insert a string. **** New exporters to Latin-1 and UTF-8 While Ulf Stegemann was going through the entities list to improve the LaTeX export, he had the great idea to provide representations for many of the entities in Latin-1, and for all of them in UTF-8. This means that we can now export files rich in special symbols to Latin-1 and to UTF-8 files. These new exporters can be reached with the commands =C-c C-e n= and =C-c C-e u=, respectively. When there is no representation for a given symbol in the targeted coding system, you can choose to keep the TeX-macro-like representation, or to get an "explanatory" representation. For example, =\simeq= could be represented as "[approx. equal to]". Please use the variable =org-entities-ascii-explanatory= to state your preference. **** HTML export: Add class to outline containers using property The =HTML_CONTAINER_CLASS= property can now be used to add a class name to the outline container of a node in HTML export. **** Throw an error when creating an image from a LaTeX snippet fails This behavior can be configured with the new option variable =org-format-latex-signal-error=. **** Support for creating BEAMER presentations from Org-mode documents Org-mode documents or subtrees can now be converted directly in to BEAMER presentation. Turning a tree into a simple presentations is straight forward, and there is also quite some support to make richer presentations as well. See the [[http://orgmode.org/manual/Beamer-class-export.html#Beamer-class-export][BEAMER section]] in the manual for more details. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the discussion about BEAMER support and how it should work. This was a great example for how this community can achieve a much better result than any individual could. *** Refiling **** Refile targets can now be cached You can turn on caching of refile targets by setting the variable =org-refile-use-cache=. This should speed up refiling if you have many eligible targets in many files. If you need to update the cache because Org misses a newly created entry or still offers a deleted one, press =C-0 C-c C-w=. **** New logging support for refiling Whenever you refile an item, a time stamp and even a note can be added to this entry. For details, see the new option =org-log-refile=. Thanks to Charles Cave for this idea. *** Completion **** In-buffer completion is now done using John Wiegley's pcomplete.el Thanks to John Wiegley for much of this code. *** Tables **** New command =org-table-transpose-table-at-point= See the docstring. This hack from Juan Pechiar is now part of Org's core. Thanks to Juan! **** Display field's coordinates when editing it with =C-c = When editing a field with =C-c =, the field's coordinate will the displayed in the buffer. Thanks to Michael Brand for a patch to this effect. **** Spreadsheet computation of durations and time values If you want to compute time values use the =T= flag, either in Calc formulas or Elisp formulas: | Task 1 | Task 2 | Total | |--------+--------+---------| | 35:00 | 35:00 | 1:10:00 | #+TBLFM: @2$3=$1+$2;T Values must be of the form =[HH:]MM:SS=, where hours are optional. Thanks to Martin Halder, Eric Schulte and Carsten for code and feedback on this. **** Implement formulas applying to field ranges Carsten implemented this field-ranges formulas. : A frequently requested feature for tables has been to be able to define : row formulas in a way similar to column formulas. The patch below allows : things like : : @3= : @2$2..@5$7= : @I$2..@II\$4= : : as the left hand side for table formulas in order to write a formula that : is valid for an entire column or for a rectangular section in a : table. Thanks a lot to Carsten for this. **** Sending radio tables from org buffers is now allowed Org radio tables can no also be sent inside Org buffers. Also, there is a new hook which get called after a table has been sent. Thanks to Seweryn Kokot. *** Lists **** Improved handling of lists Nicolas Goaziou extended and improved the way Org handles lists. 1. Indentation of text determines again end of items in lists. So, some text less indented than the previous item doesn't close the whole list anymore, only all items more indented than it. 2. Alphabetical bullets are implemented, through the use of the variable org-alphabetical-lists'. This also adds alphabetical counters like [@c] or [@W]. 3. Lists can now safely contain drawers, inline tasks, or various blocks, themselves containing lists. Two variables are controlling this: org-list-forbidden-blocks', and org-list-export-context'. 4. Improve newline-and-indent' (C-j): used in an item, it will keep text from moving at column 0. This allows to split text and make paragraphs and still not break the list. 5. Improve org-toggle-item' (C-c -): used on a region with standard text, it will change the region into one item. With a prefix argument, it will fallback to the previous behavior and make every line in region an item. It permits to easily integrate paragraphs inside a list. 6. fill-paragraph' (M-q) now understands lists. It can freely be used inside items, or on text just after a list, even with no blank line around, without breaking list structure. Thanks a lot to Nicolas for all this! *** Inline display of linked images Images can now be displayed inline. The key C-c C-x C-v does toggle the display of such images. Note that only image links that have no description part will be inlined. *** Implement offsets for ordered lists If you want to start an ordered plain list with a number different from 1, you can now do it like this: : 1. [@start:12] will star a lit a number 12 *** Babel: code block body expansion for table and preview In org-babel, code is "expanded" prior to evaluation. I.e. the code that is actually evaluated comprises the code block contents, augmented with the extra code which assigns the referenced data to variables. It is now possible to preview expanded contents, and also to expand code during during tangling. This expansion takes into account all header arguments, and variables. A new keybinding C-c M-b p' bound to org-babel-expand-src-block' can be used from inside of a source code block to preview its expanded contents (which can be very useful for debugging). tangling The expanded body can now be tangled, this includes variable values which may be the results of other source-code blocks, or stored in headline properties or tables. One possible use for this is to allow those using org-babel for their emacs initialization to store values (e.g. usernames, passwords, etc...) in headline properties or in tables. Org-babel now supports three new header arguments, and new default behavior for handling horizontal lines in tables (hlines), column names, and rownames across all languages. *** Editing Convenience and Appearance **** New command =org-copy-visible= (=C-c C-x v=) This command will copy the visible text in the region into the kill ring. Thanks to Florian Beck for this function and to Carsten for adding it to org.el and documenting it! **** Make it possible to protect hidden subtrees from being killed by =C-k= See the new variable =org-ctrl-k-protect-subtree=. This was a request by Scott Otterson. **** Implement pretty display of entities, sub-, and superscripts. The command =C-c C-x \= toggles the display of Org's special entities like =\alpha= as pretty unicode characters. Also, sub and superscripts are displayed in a pretty way (raised/lower display, in a smaller font). If you want to exclude sub- and superscripts, see the variable =org-pretty-entities-include-sub-superscripts=. Thanks to Eric Schulte and Ulf Stegeman for making this possible. **** New faces for title, date, author and email address lines The keywords in these lines are now dimmed out, and the title is displayed in a larger font, and a special font is also used for author, date, and email information. This is implemented by the following new faces: =org-document-title= =org-document-info= =org-document-info-keyword= In addition, the variable =org-hidden-keywords= can be used to make the corresponding keywords disappear. Thanks to Dan Davison for this feature. **** Simpler way to specify faces for tags and todo keywords The variables =org-todo-keyword-faces=, =org-tag-faces=, and =org-priority-faces= now accept simple color names as specifications. The colors will be used as either foreground or background color for the corresponding keyword. See also the variable =org-faces-easy-properties=, which governs which face property is affected by this setting. This is really a great simplification for setting keyword faces. The change is based on an idea and patch by Ryan Thompson. **** in tables now means fixed width, not maximum width Requested by Michael Brand. **** Better level cycling function =TAB= in an empty headline cycles the level of that headline through likely states. Ryan Thompson implemented an improved version of this function, which does not depend upon when exactly this command is used. Thanks to Ryan for this improvement. **** Adaptive filling For paragraph text, =org-adaptive-fill-function= did not handle the base case of regular text which needed to be filled. This is now fixed. Among other things, it allows email-style ">" comments to be filled correctly. Thanks to Dan Hackney for this patch. **** org-reveal' (=C-c C-r=) also decrypts encrypted entries (org-crypt.el) Thanks to Richard Riley for triggering this change. **** Better automatic letter selection for TODO keywords When all first letters of keywords have been used, Org now assigns more meaningful characters based on the keywords. Thanks to Mikael Fornius for this patch. *** Clocking **** Clock: Allow synchronous update of timestamps in CLOCK log Using =S-M-= on CLOCK log timestamps will increase/decrease the two timestamps on this line so that duration will keep the same. Note that duration can still be slightly modified in case a timestamp needs some rounding. Thanks to Rainer Stengele for this idea. **** Localized clock tables Clock tables now support a new new =:lang= parameter, allowing the user to customize the localization of the table headers. See the variable =org-clock-clocktable-language-setup= which controls available translated strings. **** Show clock overruns in mode line When clocking an item with a planned effort, overrunning the planned time is now made visible in the mode line, for example using the new face =org-mode-line-clock-overrun=, or by adding an extra string given by =org-task-overrun-text=. Thanks to Richard Riley for a patch to this effect. **** Clock reports can now include the running, incomplete clock If you have a clock running, and the entry being clocked falls into the scope when creating a clock table, the time so far spent can be added to the total. This behavior depends on the setting of =org-clock-report-include-clocking-task=. The default is =nil=. Thanks to Bernt Hansen for this useful addition. *** Misc **** Improvements with inline tasks and indentation There is now a configurable way on how to export inline tasks. See the new variable =org-inlinetask-export-templates=. Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for coding these changes. **** A property value of "nil" now means to unset a property This can be useful in particular with property inheritance, if some upper level has the property, and some grandchild of it would like to have the default settings (i.e. not overruled by a property) back. Thanks to Robert Goldman and Bernt Hansen for suggesting this change. **** New helper functions in org-table.el There are new functions to access and write to a specific table field. This is for hackers, and maybe for the org-babel people. #+begin_example org-table-get org-table-put org-table-current-line org-table-goto-line #+end_example **** Archiving: Allow to reverse order in target node The new option =org-archive-reversed-order= allows to have archived entries inserted in a last-on-top fashion in the target node. This was requested by Tom. **** Org-reveal: Double prefix arg shows the entire subtree of the parent This can help to get out of an inconsistent state produced for example by viewing from the agenda. This was a request by Matt Lundin. * License This file is part of GNU Emacs.
