remember inserts '[[]]'

Hello, Carsten and list users!

If org doesn't support a link for a buffer, [[]] will be inserted in
*remember*. For example, if I run remember in an ERC buffer, I get
something like this:

,----[ buffer *remember* ]
| * TODO 
|   
|   [[]]
`----

I am not sure if this is a bug.

Re: remember inserts '[[]]'

This is a buffer without file, so I would not know what the link could 
do.
What would you propose in this case?  Just leave out the link?

Inserting [[]] is not useful and most of the time users will have
to delete them manually. So leaving them out seems a good choice.

FWIW, planner-erc.el has 
  ;; Annotations will be in the following forms.
  ;;
  ;; [[irc://server/nick,isnick][Chat with nick on server#channel]]
  ;; [[irc://server/nick,isnick][Chat with nick on server]]
  ;; [[irc://server/#channel][Chat on server#channel]]
  ;; [[irc://server][Chat on server]]

but I am not a heavy user of irc and I don't find it particularly
useful. Anyone missing this feature?

Org Newbie Dream/Request for Feature - Display linked email in org file

I am an Org newbie with Org experience of about 2 hours. But I am so
excited. Through reading Dave's tutorial and a little manual, I decided
to use for many things.

One of them is business management.

Say some customer asks for quotation by email, and henthforth there
will be many email communications. Maybe many prices about many products
are quoted. And then no communication for fairly long time. Suddenly
someday this customer goes to place some order. So I have to search for
emails for the prices quoted.

I think it's possible to use Org for this quotation tracking.

Sure it's not agenda or todo but notes. Something like:

** Some Customer
Some day -- some quoation activity
[link to email]

What I want is some function to display linked emails internally in org
file. Some org-show-linked-email-internally. FYI, I use Gnus for email,
with nnimap mainly and nnml groups for archiving of email specifically
from some company (in biz) or someone.

>From Org manual I know Org can deal with external links fine, including
Gnus article link.

My questions:
1. Are these links buttonized? Or can they be?

Outlining vs OrgMode

Are there any advantages/disadvantages to using Outline mode vs Org mode for writing reports/articles in Emacs.

Being new to Emacs, I hadn't realised that Emacs had built in Outlining and have been using Org Mode, with the added attraction that I can drop TODOs into the doc and have them appear in Agenda views.

So I just wondered if those with more experience can say if there is any reason not to use Org mode for writing.

Thanks,

Graham

org-mode 4.64

Hi,

I have released version 4.64 at

http://www.astro.uva.nl/~dominik/Tools/org

Enjoy.

- Carsten

Changes in Version 4.64
-----------------------

* Overview

   - Email links get better, configurable descriptions
   - When inserting a link, selected text becomes the description
   - Easier access to the list of stored links.
   - Horizontal lines in HTML export.
   - Remember templates and storing of notes improved.

* Detailed description of changes

   - The descriptive part of links to email messages can be configured
     using the variable `org-email-link-description-format'.  The new
     default is "Email %c: %.30s" and leads to

        Email from NAME: SUBJECT

     If you configure the variable `org-from-is-user-regexp'
     correctly, then for email you *sent* this will actually change to

        Email to NAME: SUBJECT

     The subject is limited to 30 characters.  If you have become
     attached to the previous default (look twice, the new one is
     better), use "%f on: %s" as your format.

   - Selecting text before entering a new link with C-c C-l now really
     works, the selected text becomes the description part of the
     link.  Requested by Scott, buggy 4.62 implementation is now fixed.

   - Stored links are part of the history list for C-c C-l, so to
     reach them, you can use up/down rather than completion.  Thanks
     to Raman for this excellent idea.

   - A line consisting only of "-", and at least 5 of them, is
     exported into HTML as <hr/>, as proposed by Giovanni Ridolfi.

   - Several changes to org <-> remember integration

       - You can use `org-remember' as your default command to start
         remember.  It will automatically detect if there is an active
         region and use it as initial content (we will probably make
         remember.el work like this as well).
         Also, when calling `org-remember' in a remember buffer that
         was created with a template, you will again be asked to
         select a template.  The buffer is then re-created with the
         new template, but the old context information.  This is
         useful if you change your mind about the template to use
         (Leo's idea).

       - Besides specifying a default *target* file for a note, you
         can also give a default *heading* of which the note should
         become a subitem.  In many cases this avoids or speeds up
         navigating to the right location.  Both file and heading can
         be different for each template.  Both are non-binding, you
         can change them while storing the note.  However, when you
         exit remember with C-u C-c C-c, these defaults will be used
         without interaction.

       - Templates can specify interactive fields.  During expansion
         of the template, you will be prompted for the information in
         that field.  For example %^t will pop up a calendar and ask
         you to select a date. This new feature follows a proposal
         from Leo, who in the mean time has said he does not need it
         anymore.  But I liked it, so here it is :-)

       - Templates can access information specific to the link type
         created, for example the author and subject of an email.
         Syntax is %:fromname, %:fromaddress, %:subject etc, details
         in the manual.  Proposed by Peder O. Klingenberg.

       - I have been considering to move, at some stage, the template
         functionality into remember.el itself - which would of course
         require consent of the remember.el maintainers.  I am not
         sure how well this would work though, since some things like
         the interactive time stamps are org.el specific, so treating
         them would require special hooks.  Comments?

Re: [bug] lists followed by : has wrong indent

Hi Leo

I have decided to treat this as "intentional".  Paragraphs with ":" are
not considered as changing the list level you are no, even if they are
indented less than the current list.  I believe this also makes sense
because fixed-width text (normally quoting code or something like this) 
usually has an introductory sentence before it.

Thanks for the report.

- Carsten

Thank you, Carsten.

This will keep me busy for a while. I enjoy exploring new features of
org.

BTW, I found a typo in org-remember:
,----[ typo ]
| org-remember is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `org.el'.
| (org-remember)
| 
| Call `remember'.  If this is already a remember buffer, re-apply template.
| If there is an active region, *amke* sure remember uses it as initial content
| of the remember buffer.

Very nice feature. The issue is it usually break in the middle of a
word which made the description look odd. Can it be improved to do
either of the following:

      1) if the break position is in the middle of a word, include that
         word.
      2) add '...' (just an example) to the end of the break position

I don't know which one is better though I like 1) more.

Slowly more and more mark up rules are introduced into org. Is there a
standard/popular Wiki Markup rules we can use for org, maybe like the
one used for emacswiki? Any other suggestions?

The template functionality seems generally useful. So I think move it
to remember is a good choice.

I am fine with the decision.
