> Push exported stuff to kill ring
> =================================
> All exporters now push the produced material onto the kill-ring

> selection to make it easy to paste this under many circumstances.
> Tables in LaTeX without centering
> ==================================
> Set the variable `org-export-latex-tables-centered' to nil if you

> longtable tables are always centered.
> LaTeX export: TODO markup configurable
> =======================================
> The markup for TODO keywords in LaTeX export is now configurable
> using the variable `org-export-latex-todo-keyword-markup'.
> ASCII export to buffer
> =======================
> ASCII export has now the same command variations as the other
> export backends, for example exporting to a temporary buffer
> instead of a file.
> The was a request by Samuel Wales.
> Accessibility improvements for HTTP tables
> ===========================================
> When exporting tables to HTML, Org now adds `scope' attributes to
> all header fields, in order to support screen readers.
> Setting the variable
> `org-export-html-table-use-header-tags-for-first-column' will
> request using `<th>' instead of `<td>' also in the entire first
> column, so that also row information can be scoped.  This was
> triggered by a request by Jan Buchal, and as usually Sebastian
> Rose came up with the right implementation.
> Timezone information in iCalendar files
> ========================================
> The timezone information in iCalendar files is now written in the
> correct format, and can be set in the variable
> `org-ical-timezone'.  This variable is initialized from the `TZ'

> Thanks to Chris Gray for this contribution.
> More flexibility about placing logging notes.
> ==============================================
> Logging into a drawer can now also be set for individual
> subtrees using the `LOG_INTO_DRAWER' property.
> Requested by Daniel J. Sinder
> New reload key
> ===============
> Reloading Org has moved to a new key, `C-c C-x !', and is now

> Start Agenda with log mode active
> ==================================
> Set the new option `org-agenda-start-with-log-mode' to have
> log mode turned on from the start.  Or set this option for
> specific custom commands.
> Thanks to Benjamin Andresen for a patch to this effect.
> Agenda speed optimizations
> ===========================
> Depending on circumstances, construction the agenda has become a
> lot faster.
> Triggered by Eric S Fraga's reports about using Org on a slow
> computer like a netbook.
> New face for today in agenda
> =============================
> The date that is today can now be highlighted in the agenda by
> customizing the face `org-agenda-date-today'.
> Thanks to Dmitri Minaev for a patch to this effect.
> Properties to disambiguate statistics
> ======================================
> When an entry has both check boxes and TODO children, it is not
> clear what kind of statistics a cookie should show  You can now use
> the `COOKIE_DATA' property to disambiguate, by giving it a value
> "todo" or "checkbox".
> Thanks to Ulf Stegeman, who was persistent enough to push this
> change past my initial resistance.
> Checkboxes and TODO items: recursive statistics
> ================================================
> Setting the variable `org-hierarchical-checkbox-statistics' to
> `nil' will make statistics cookies count all checkboxes in the
> lit hierarchy below it.
> Setting the variable `org-hierarchical-todo-statistics' to
> `nil' will do the same for TODO items.

> The change for checkboxes was a patch by Richard Klinda.
> New operators for column view
