I am releasing version 5.05 of Org-mode.  As usual, it is
in the Emacs CVS trunk, and at my website


Lots of changes again, make sure to carefully read the stuff below.

Changes in Version 5.05

* Overview

  - LaTeX export, finally, thanks to Bastien.

  - Extension mechanism for the hyperlink system.

  - Global access to commands the insert and follow links.

  - Individual lead-times for deadlines.

  - Option to show only the next instance of repeating timestamp.

  - Store remember notes with only 2 keys

  - Appointment reminders from Org-mode.

  - Global values for selected properties.

  - Bug fixes.

* Details

  - Bastien's `org-export-latex.el' is now part of the org-mode
    distribution.  You can export an Org-mode document to a
    LaTeX file with `C-c C-e l'.  For more options, see the
    manual, and the commentary in the Lisp file.  Kudos to
    Bastien for contributing this frequently requested feature.
    I am sure this has been tough because of the many different
    ways I have been allowing LaTeX snippets and environments to
    be incorporated in lazy free-format ways.

  - Org-mode has now an extension mechanism for the hyperlink
    system.  This should clear the road for all those mairix and
    other ideas that have been floating around.  Now it is on
    *you* to write and share new link types for Org-mode.  The
    interface for adding a new link type is described in the
    appendix of the manual, section A2.  The unsolved problem is
    currently how to handle the new link types for

  - New *global* commands `org-open-at-point-global' and
    `org-insert-link-global'.  You can bind these commands to
    global keys and use them to insert and follow Org-mode-like
    links anywhere in Emacs.  Thanks to Adam Spiers for this
    excellent idea.

  - Each deadline timestamp may now specify its own interval of
    lead-time display, given in days, weeks, months or years.
    The syntax is like this

     DEADLINE: <2007-08-13 Mon -5d>

    When combined with a repeater, the repeater has to come

     DEADLINE: <2007-08-13 Mon +2w -5d>

    You may now also customize the faces that are used in the
    agenda to indicate the distance of an approaching deadline.
    See the new option `org-agenda-deadline-faces'.

    Thanks to Pavel Chalmoviansky and John Wiegley for
    proposals in this direction.

  - New option `org-agenda-repeating-timestamp-show-all'.  When
    set to nil, repeating time stamps will only show up once in
    the agenda, either today or in the near future.  Other
    matches will be ignored.  Thanks to John Wiegley for this

  - New variable `org-remember-store-without-prompt'.  When set,
    exiting the remember buffer with C-c C-c will store the note
    without further prompts to the default location, and `C-u
    C-c C-c' will get the prompts for file and location.  So
    this variable reverses the prefix-argument functionality for
    storing remember notes.  This follows a request from John

  - A new function `org-agenda-to-appt' activates all
    appointments for the current day so that Emacs will display
    reminders.  This uses appt.el.  Thanks to Bastien for this

  - You can now set default values for properties that can be
    inherited by all entries in a buffer, or by all entries
    globally.  Global properties are set in the variable
    `org-global-properties', like this:

      (setq org-global-properties '(("NAME" "This is the value")))

    Buffer-local values are set like this:

      #+PROPERTY: NAME This is the value

    When using org-entry-get to get the value of a property with
    the `inherit' flag and the hierarchy above the entry does
    not contain this property, the buffer-local and global lists
    are checked as well.  This is mostly useful (I think) to set
    the list of allowed values for a property.  Thanks to Bernt
    Hansen and Bastien for these ideas.

  - Bug fixes.
