Details

Improved behavior of conversion commands `C-c -' and `C-c *'
-------------------------------------------------------------

     The conversion commands `C-c -' and `C-c *' are now better
     behaved and therefore more useful, I hope.

     If there is an active region, these commands will act on the
     region, otherwise on the current line.

     - C-c - :: This command turns headings or normal lines into
          items, or items into normal lines.  When there is a
          region, everything depends on the first line of the
          region:
          - if it is a item, turn all items in the region into
            normal lines.
          - if it is a headline, turn all headlines in the region
            into items.
          - if it is a normal line, turn all lines into items.
          - special case: if there is no active region and the
            current line is an item, cycle the bullet type of the
            current list.
     - C-c * :: This command turns items and normal lines into
          headings, or headings into normal lines.  When there is
          a region, everything depends on the first line of the
          region:
          - if it is a item, turn all items in the region into
            headlines.
          - if it is a headline, turn all headlines in the region
            into normal lines.
          - if it is a normal line, turn all lines into headlines.

Table formulas may now reference fields in other tables
--------------------------------------------------------

You may now reference constants, fields and ranges from a
different table, either in the current file or even in a
different file.  The syntax is

  remote(NAME-OR-ID,REF)

where /NAME/ can be the name of a table in the current file as
set by a `#+TBLNAME: NAME' line before the table.  It can also be
the ID of an entry, even in a different file, and the reference
then refers to the first table in that entry.  /REF/ is an
absolute field or range reference, valid in the referenced table.
Note that since there is no "current filed" for the remote table,
all row and column references must be absolute, not relative.

A final hline is imagined in each table, for the sake of references
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Even if a table does not end with a hline (mine never do because I
think it is not pretty), for the sake of references you can
assume there is one.  So in the following table

     a   b
    ---+---
     1   2
     3   4


a reference like `@I$1..@II$2' will now work.

A tags-todo search can now ignore timestamped items
----------------------------------------------------
     The variables `org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date',
     `org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date', and
     `org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date' make it possible to
     exclude TODO entries which have this kind of planning info
     associated with them.  This is most useful for people who
     schedule everything, and who use the TODO list mainly to find
     things that are not yet scheduled.  Thomas Morgan pointed out
     that also the tags-todo search may serve exactly this
     purpose, and that it might be good to have a way to make
     these variables also apply to the tags-todo search.  I can
     see that, but could not convince myself to make this the
     default.  A new variable must be set to make this happen:
     `org-agenda-tags-todo-honor-ignore-options'.

`\par' can be used to force a paragraph break, also in footnotes
-----------------------------------------------------------------

The LaTeX idiom `\par' will insert a paragraph break at that
location.  Normally you would simply leave an empty line to get
such a break, but this is useful for footnotes whose definitions
may not contain empty lines.
