I am releasing org-mode version 5.07.


Emacs CVS (emacs 23...) also has this new version.


- Carsten

Changes in version Version 5.07

* Overview

  - Different faces for different TODO keywords.

  - Setting TODO states through the TAG setting interface.

  - Context information is stored when moving a tree to the archive.

  - Sorting can be done by priority.

  - `Org-ellipsis' can now also be a face.

  - Scheduling info is no longer removed entry is marked CLOSED.

  - Unavailable files in `org-agenda-files' can be skipped.

* Incompatible changes

  - The time of archiving is now stored as a property.
    ARCHIVED is no longer a special time keyword.

  - Scheduling info is no longer removed entry is marked CLOSED.

* Details

  - You can now define different faces for different TODO
    keywords.  This request has come up frequently, so here it
    is: Use the variable `org-todo-keyword-faces'.

    A Here is a configuration example:

     (setq org-todo-keyword-faces
       '(("TODO"      . org-warning)
         ("DEFERRED"  . shadow)
         ("CANCELED"  . (:foreground "blue" :weight bold
                        :underline t))))

    Org-mode continue still use `org-todo' and `org-done' for
    keywords that have no specific face assigned.

  - Some People use TODO states more like tags.  For them the
    TODO keywords mark special states and they like to quickly
    switch between states in arbitrary sequence.  The standard
    TODO interface is not perfect for this, because it assumes
    that the states are reached in sequence.  However, the fast
    tag setting interface is in fact perfect for this.  You can
    now "misuse" the TAG selection interface to also set TODO
    states.  All you need to do is to assign keys to the TODO
    states, just like you also do for tags.

     #+TAGS: @HOME(h) @OFFICE(o) @SHOP(s)

    Next time you try to set tags with C-c C-c, the todo states
    will be offered as well, and the corresponding key will
    switch the entry to that state.

  - New variable `org-archive-save-context-info' governs if
    information that would be lost by moving a subtree to the
    archive file, should be stored as special properties.  For

     (setq org-archive-save-context-info '(itags category))

    will store the inherited tags and the category in properties
    ARCHIVE_ITAGS and ARCHIVE_CATEGORY, respectively.  The
    default setting for this variable is to save everything that
    could be lost.  This was a proposal by John Wiegley.

  - Sorting (`C-c ^') can use the use the priority to sort.  Use
    the "p" and "P" keys at the prompt.  John Wiegley, again.

  - `Org-ellipsis' can now also be a face to make the folding
    ellipsis more visible.  This is based on a post by Tassilo
    Horn.  Since `org-ellipsis' only works in Org-mode, you
    might want to use Tassilo Horn's hack directly in order to
    affect the folding ellipsis globally.

  - Scheduling info is no longer removed when an entry is marked
    CLOSED.  This was a request by Brian van den Broek.  Let me
    know if this breaks anything for you - then it will become
    an option.

  - New option `org-agenda-skip-unavailable-files'.  Currently,
    if a file does not exist, it will be removed from
    `org-agenda-files' after a query.  When this option is set,
    the file will simply be skipped.

  - Bug fixes.
