[O] ANN: Release 8.1

From: Carsten Dominik
Subject: [O] ANN: Release 8.1

Hi everyone!

The current git master has just been tagged as release 8.1.  I would like
to thank everyone who contributed to it.  I am extremely glad to see how
little input from my side is really needed to move this project like a well
oiled machine.  Thank you Org community, with its increasing number
of people who take responsibility.

Special thanks to Bastien for pushing this release over the finish line,
next time it will be truly me who will do this.  After struggling with
this during the first few month after I took over the maintainer role
again, I seem to have found a way now to make sufficient time.

Below is a list of changes.


- Carsten


                                ORG 8.1

Incompatible changes

Combine org-mac-message.el and org-mac-link-grabber into org-mac-link.el

  Please remove calls to `(require 'org-mac-message)' and `(require
  'org-mac-link-grabber)' in your `.emacs' initialization file.  All you
  need now is `(require 'org-mac-link)'.

  Additionally, replace any calls to `ogml-grab-link' to
  `org-mac-grab-link'.  For example, replace this line:

  | (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'omgl-grab-link)

  with this:

  | (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c g") 'org-mac-grab-link)

HTML export: Replace `HTML_HTML5_FANCY' by `:html-html5-fancy' (...)

  Some of the HTML specific export options in Org <8.1 are either nil or
  t, like `#+HTML_INCLUDE_STYLE'.  We replaced these binary options with
  option keywords like :html-include-style.

  So you need to replace



  | #+OPTIONS: :html-include-style t

  Options affected by this change: `HTML5_FANCY', `HTML_INCLUDE_SCRIPTS'

Important bugfixes

org-insert-heading has been rewritten and bugs are now fixed

The replacement of disputed keys is now turned of when reading a date

New features

You can now use `xdg-open' to control how to open files

`C-c ^ x' will now sort checklist items by their checked status

  See org-sort-list: hitting `C-c ^ x' will put checked items at the end
  of the list.

Various LaTeX export enhancements

  - Support SVG images
  - Support for .pgf files
  - LaTeX Babel blocks can now be exported as `.tikz' files
  - Allow `latexmk' as an option for org-latex-pdf-process
  - When using `\usepackage[AUTO]{inputenc}', AUTO will automatically be
    replaced with a coding system derived from
  - The dependency on the `latexsym' LaTeX package has been removed, we
    now use `amssymb' symbols by default instead.

Remapping `forward-paragraph' and `backward-paragraph'

  `forward-paragraph' and `backward-paragraph' are now remapped to
  org-forward-element and org-backward-element respectively.
  E.g. hitting `C-<down>' on a headline will move to the next headline.

New entities in `org-entities.el'

  Add support for ell, imath, jmath, varphi, varpi, aleph, gimel, beth,
  dalet, cdots, S (ß), dag, ddag, colon, therefore, because, triangleq,
  leq, geq, lessgtr, lesseqgtr, ll, lll, gg, ggg, prec, preceq,
  preccurleyeq, succ, succeq, succurleyeq, setminus, nexist(s), mho,
  check, frown, diamond.  Changes loz, vert, checkmark, smile and tilde.

New options

New option org-bookmark-names-plist

  This allows to specify the names of automatic bookmarks.

New option org-agenda-ignore-drawer-properties

  This allows more flexibility when optimizing the agenda generation.
  See [http://orgmode.org/worg/agenda-optimization.html] for details.

New option: org-html-link-use-abs-url to force using absolute URLs

  This is an export/publishing option, and should be used either within
  the `#+OPTIONS' line(s) or within a org-publish-project-alist.

  Setting this option to `t' is needed when the HTML output does not
  allow relative URLs.  For example, the `contrib/lisp/ox-rss.el'
  library produces a RSS feed, and RSS feeds need to use absolute URLs,
  so a combination of `:html-link-home "..." and :html-link-use-abs-url
  t' is required---see the configuration example in the comment section
  of `ox-rss.el'.

New option org-babel-ditaa-java-cmd

  This makes java executable configurable for ditaa blocks.

New options org-babel-latex-htlatex and org-babel-latex-htlatex-packages

  This enables SVG generation from latex code blocks.

New option: org-habit-show-done-alwyays-green

  See [this message] from Max Mikhanosha.

New option: org-babel-inline-result-wrap

  If you set this to the following

  | (setq org-babel-inline-result-wrap "$%s$")

  then inline code snippets will be wrapped into the formatting string.

New contributed packages

  `ox-bibtex.el' by Nicolas Goaziou: an utility to handle BibTeX export to
                                     both LaTeX and HTML exports.  It uses
                                     the [bibtex2html] software.

  `org-screenshot.el' by Max Mikhanosha: an utility to handle screenshots
                                         easily from Org, using the
                                         external tool [scrot].
