I have released version 4.64 at
Changes in Version 4.64
- 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
- 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
- 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?
