Hi org-mode,

As a heads up, Emacs is getting ready to cut the emacs-28 branch in
preparation of the upcoming release of Emacs 28.1:

    https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2021-07/msg00812.html

It would be good if we could merge the most recent stable Org-mode
version before the first Emacs 28.1 pretest release.  Could you please
start looking into what is needed to make this happen?

Please forgive me if this has been discussed already; I'm not actively
following the orgmode-emacs list.  I tried searching the archives but
couldn't find anything.

Thanks in advance!

Could you please provide us with a brief update on the status of this?

Thanks!

I'm not an org maintainer, but can possibly provide some info. Not
really sure what your concerns are though.

Org has recently moved the git repository to be hosted on savannah. 
From a recent post to the org mode list


    from now on, here are the official Org repositories:
   
    - org-mode: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs/org-mode.git
    - worg: https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/worg
    - orgweb: https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/orgweb
   
    org-contrib will continue to be on https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/org-contrib
    until it disappears, thanks to volunteers taking over maintainance of
    the various packages.
   
    You can forget code.orgmode.org.
   
The latest version of the current 9.4 version can be pulled from the
repository. Emacs 28 is already bundling this version (though an update
to get latest bug fixes is probably warranted).

A new version org 9.5 is going to be released this week. Not sure if
Emacs maintainers want to bundle this new version or prefer to just
continue with current 9.4 version. I suspect the latest 9.4 will be the
preferred version given 9.5 is only going to be released in the next day
or so. The 9.5 version will be in ELPA, so those interested can update
to it with minimal hassle. 

As far as I understand it, which version is bundled with Emacs is really
down to the Emacs maintainers and not the org maintainers.

There were some issues with org mode and native compilation relating to
file dependencies. I don't know if they have been resolved, but as I
understand it, this is a native compilation issue rather than an
org-mode issue. I'm not using native compilation due to issues with
packages that have more complex dependencies (i.e. emacspeak and
org-mode), so not sure what the current status is - perhaps the issues
have been resolved.

It’s worth noting that Org 9.5 is being released /for/ Emacs 28. Hence the recent
merge-athon by Bastien.

All the best,
Timothy

OK. I thought the push was more about Bastien's aim to step back from
org maintenance by October and getting the 9.5 version out before he
does.
