Hello,

I have just upgraded to the Org 8.0. Nice work! :)

But I have a problem with the exporter:

I have modified by org-exporter to export latex-files with the xelatex 
compiler. The implementation uses the 
"org-export-latex-after-initial-vars-hook"-hook to reconfigure the 
default process, however, this hook seems to be deleted and I'm not able 
to find equivalent hook.

Cheers,
Søren

Isn't it sufficient to customize `org-latex-pdf-process' so it uses
xelatex?

For reference:
I got it to work by adapting the snippet from Bruno Tavernier[1]:
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun my-auto-tex-cmd (backend)
    "When exporting from .org with latex,
    automatically run latex, pdflatex, or xelatex as appropriate,
    using latexmk."
    (let ((texcmd))
      (setq texcmd "latexmk -pdf %f")
      (if (string-match "LATEX_CMD: pdflatex" (buffer-string))
          (setq texcmd "latexmk -pdflatex=pdflatex -pdf %f"))
      (if (string-match "LATEX_CMD: pdflatex-shell-escape" (buffer-string))
          (setq texcmd "latexmk -pdflatex=pdflatex --shell-escape -pdf %f"))
      (if (string-match "LATEX_CMD: xelatex" (buffer-string))
          (setq texcmd "latexmk -pdflatex=xelatex -pdf %f"))
      (setq org-latex-pdf-process (list texcmd))))
  (add-hook 'org-export-before-parsing-hook 'my-auto-tex-cmd)
#+end_src

One thing that tripped me up initially was the requirement for the function to 
accept exactly one argument (unused in this case).

I assume Søren is using a similar snippet [1] as I do which is very
convenient (credit goes to Bruno Tavernier). This approach lets you
specify a #+LATEX_CMD (think of xelatex, -shell-escape, etc.) on a per
file basis and allows LaTeX package 'injection'.

Is there a hook that is run before actual LaTeX export of a given
org-mode buffer in the new exporter engine?
