Hi all,

I've released Org 7.9.


After 1885 commits since Org 7.8, it was about time.

See the list of changes here:


I cannot thank all the contributors enough: especially Nicolas, for his
great work on org-element.el (among other nice stuff), Achim for the way
he patiently rethought the build mechanism (and bared with me when I was
being stubborn), Eric for the steady maintainance of Babel, Max for the
neat idea of sticky agendas, etc.

New build system and new packages

New build system

Achim implemented a new build system.

The basic method for installing Org is the same:

1. Download or clone Org.
2. run `make install' from the Org directory.
3. Add (require 'org-install) in your .emacs.el.

But the build system is now more flexible and can be more easily
adapted to suit your needs.

See [http://orgmode.org/worg/dev/org-build-system.html] for details.

New packages in core

=org-eshell.el= by Konrad Hinsen is now in Org's core

=org-eshell.el= allows you to create links from [Eshell].

[Eshell]: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/eshell/index.html

New packages in contrib/

Note: The =EXPERIMENTAL/= directory has been deleted.  The files
have been moved to the =contrib/lisp/= directory.

=org-notify.el= by Peter Münster

From the comment section:

Get notifications, when there is something to do.
Sometimes, you need a reminder a few days before a deadline, e.g. to buy a
present for a birthday, and then another notification one hour before to
have enough time to choose the right clothes.
For other events, e.g. rolling the dustbin to the roadside once per week,
you probably need another kind of notification strategy.
This package tries to satisfy the various needs.

=org-bibtex-extras.el= by Eric Schulte

From the comment section:

This file add some extra functionality to your bibtex entries which
are stored as Org-mode headlines using org-bibtex.el.  Most
features expect that you keep all of your reading notes in a single
file, set the `obe-bibtex-file' variable to the path to this file.

New exporters in contrib/

Nicolas export engine org-export.el lives in the =contrib/lisp/= directory.
To use it:

Make sure contrib/lisp/ is in your load-path
M-: (require 'org-export) RET
M-: (require 'org-e-latex) RET ; or any other library
M-x org-export-dispatch RET

These are the currently available exporters:

- =org-e-ascii.el= by Nicolas
- =org-e-beamer.el= by Nicolas
- =org-e-groff.el= by Luis Anaya
- =org-e-html.el= by Jambunathan
- =org-e-latex.el= by Nicolas
- =org-e-man.el= by Luis Anaya
- =org-e-odt.el= by Jambunathan
- =org-e-texinfo.el= by Jonathan Leech-Pepin
- =org-md.el= by Nicolas 

If we have enough testers, the new export engine is very likely to replace
the current one for the next major release.  Please report any problem on
the mailing list!

If you want to write a new export backend based on this export engine,
please check the [online documentation].

[online documentation]: http://orgmode.org/worg/dev/org-export-reference.html

New Babel languages

Support for execution of Scala code blocks (see lisp/ob-scala.el)

Support for execution of IO code blocks (see lisp/ob-io.el)

Incompatible changes

- The =UTILITIES/= directory has been renamed to =utils/=.

- If your code relies on =org-write-agenda=, please use
  [org-agenda-write] from now on.

- If your code relies on =org-make-link=, please use =concat=

- The default value of [org-table-number-regexp] now allows commas
  as the mark to separate decimals from integers in numbers.  If
  your code relies on the previous behavior, please customize
  this variable.  See the announcement on the mailing list.

New features and user-visible changes

Org Element

org-element.el is a toolbox for parsing and analysing "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 particularily 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-at-point]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-element-at-point
[org-element-context]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-element-context

[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.

[org-fill-paragraph]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-fill-paragraph

[org-metaup] and [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/down= to
move the region backward/forward.  This also works with regions bigger than
just one line.

[org-metaup]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-metaup
[org-metadown]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-metadown

[org-up-element] and [org-down-element] (respectively =C-c C-^= and =C-c C-_=)

This will move the point up/down in the hierarchy of elements.

[org-up-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-up-element
[org-down-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-down-element

[org-backward-element] and [org-forward-element] (respectively =M-{= and =M-}=)

This will move the point backward/forward in the hierarchy of elements.

[org-backward-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-backward-element
[org-forward-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-forward-element

[org-narrow-to-element] will narrow to the element at point

[org-narrow-to-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-narrow-to-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

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 [org-mark-subtree] (=C-c @=)
anywhere in the subtree.

Invoking [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-mark-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-mark-element
[org-mark-subtree]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-mark-subtree
[org-mark-element]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-mark-element

Org Agenda

New option [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 [org-agenda-sticky] is =non-nil=, the agenda =q= key will bury the
agenda buffers.  Agenda commands will then show existing buffer instead of
generating new ones.  When =nil=, =q= will kill the single agenda buffer.

[org-agenda-sticky]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-sticky
[org-agenda-sticky]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-sticky

New option [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

  (setq org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts
        '(("p" (in-file . "\\.txt"))))

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.

[org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-custom-commands-contexts

=N= and =P= in the agenda will move to the next/previous item

New command [org-agenda-bulk-mark-all] to mark all items

This new command is bound to =*= in agenda mode.

There is also a new option [org-agenda-bulk-mark-char] to set the character
to use as a mark for bulk actions.

[org-agenda-bulk-mark-all]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-bulk-mark-all
[org-agenda-bulk-mark-char]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-bulk-mark-char

New option [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

[org-agenda-persistent-marks]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-persistent-marks
[org-agenda-bulk-action]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-bulk-action

New option [org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]

=Non-nil= means skip timestamp line if same entry shows because of

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.

[org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-deadline-is-shown

New =todo-unblocked= and =nottodo-unblocked= skip conditions

See the [git commit] for more explanations.

[git commit]: http://orgmode.org/w/?p%3Dorg-mode.git%3Ba%3Dcommit%3Bh%3Df426da

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 [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-agenda-category-filter]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-category-filter
[org-agenda-category-filter-preset]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-category-filter-preset
[org-agenda-filter-by-top-category]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda-filter-by-top-category

Org Links

Inserting links

When inserting links through [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.

[org-insert-link]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-insert-link

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 [org-agenda] with =C-h f
org-agenda RET=, creating a link from this buffer will let you go back to
the same buffer.

[org-agenda]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-agenda

New command [org-insert-all-links]

This will insert all links as list items.  With a universal prefix
argument, links will not be deleted from [org-stored-links].

This new command is bound to =C-c C-M-l=.

[org-insert-all-links]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-insert-all-links
[org-stored-links]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-stored-links

New option [org-url-hexify-p]

When set to =nil=, the =URL= part of a link will not be hexified.

[org-url-hexify-p]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-url-hexify-p

Org can now open multiple shell links

New option [org-doi-server-url] to specify an alternate DOI server

[org-doi-server-url]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-doi-server-url

RET now follows time stamps links

Org Editing

[org-todo] and =org-archive-*= can now loop in the active region

When [org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region] is =non-nil=, using [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.

[org-todo]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-todo
[org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region
[org-todo]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-todo

You can now set tags for headlines in a region

If [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

[org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region

New command [org-insert-drawer] to insert a drawer interactively

[org-insert-drawer]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-insert-drawer

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 [org-indent-region]

=C-M-\= should now produce useful results.

You can unindent the buffer with [org-unindent-buffer].

[org-indent-region]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-indent-region
[org-unindent-buffer]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-unindent-buffer

New option [org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]

When =non-nil=, =S-M-<left>= 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-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-allow-promoting-top-level-subtree

Org Clock

New keybinding =C-c C-x C-z= for [org-clock-resolve]

[org-clock-resolve]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-resolve

New keybinding =C-c C-x C-q= for [org-clock-cancel]

[org-clock-cancel]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-cancel

New command [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.

[org-clock-in-last]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-in-last

=C-u M-x= [org-clock-out] =RET= now prompts for a state to switch to

[org-clock-out]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-out

=S-M-<up/down>= on a clock timestamps adjusts the previous/next clock

New option [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
[org-clock-in] RET= (three universal prefix arguments) and =C-u C-u M-x
[org-clock-in-last] RET= (two universal prefix arguments).

[org-clock-continuously]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-continuously
[org-clock-in]: doc::org-clock-in
[org-clock-in-last]: doc::org-clock-in-last

New option [org-clock-frame-title-format]

This option sets the value of =frame-title-format= when clocking in.

[org-clock-frame-title-format]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-frame-title-format

New options for controlling the clockreport display

[org-clock-file-time-cell-format]: Format string for the file time cells in

[org-clock-total-time-cell-format]: Format string for the total time cells
in clockreport.

[org-clock-file-time-cell-format]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-file-time-cell-format
[org-clock-total-time-cell-format]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-total-time-cell-format

New options for controlling the clock/timer display

[org-clock-clocked-in-display]: control whether the current clock is
displayed in the mode line and/or frame title.

[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-clock-clocked-in-display]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-clock-clocked-in-display
[org-timer-display]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-timer-display

Org Appearance

New option [org-custom-properties]

The visibility of properties listed in this options can be turn on/off with
[org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility].  This might be useful for
properties used by third-part tools or that you don't want to see

[org-custom-properties]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-custom-properties
[org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-toggle-custom-properties-visibility

New command [org-redisplay-inline-images]

This will redisplay all images.  It is bound to =C-c C-x C-M-v=.

[org-redisplay-inline-images]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-redisplay-inline-images

New entities in =org-entities.el=

There are these new entities:

    ("tilde" "\\~{}" nil "&tilde;" "~" "~" "~")
    ("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 [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 [org-sparse-tree-default-date-type] to
the default value you want.

[org-sparse-tree]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-sparse-tree
[org-sparse-tree-default-date-type]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-sparse-tree-default-date-type

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 [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 [org-read-date-prefer-future] is set to =time=, this will
produce the expected prompt indication.

[org-read-date-prefer-future]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-read-date-prefer-future
[org-read-date-prefer-future]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-read-date-prefer-future

New option [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-datetree-add-timestamp]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-datetree-add-timestamp

Org Capture

New command [org-capture-string]

M-x [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.

[org-capture-string]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-capture-string
[org-capture-string]: http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html#org-capture-string

New option [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

  (setq org-capture-templates-contexts
        '(("c" (in-mode . "message-mode"))))

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.

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.

I'm delighted to hear of the new release, and will upgrade today via git.

However... might I suggest that those who are commenting on the release,
please refrain from quoting the entire changelog? It's rather unpleasant
for digest readers.

It's one of the reasons why computers have Delete keys :-D

Sorry to be a stickler, but in the first digest announcing the release, I
had to page through the whole changelog 3 or 4 times because the first
several people to reply did not trim the quotes. And there's another today.
