Changes in Version 5.16


Restriction lock on agenda scope

    You can now permanently lock the agenda construction to a
    certain scope, like a file or a subtree.  So instead of
    pressing "<" for each command in the agenda dispatcher, you
    only once select a restriction scope.  All subsequent agenda
    commands will than respect this restriction.  For example,
    you can use this at work, to limit agendas to your work file
    or tree, and at home to limit to the home file or tree.  Or
    you can use it during the day in order to focus in on certain

    You select a scope with the command `C-c C-x <', which
    restricts to the current subtree.  When called with a `C-u'
    prefix, the restriction is to the current file.  You can also
    make restrictions from the speedbar frame, see below.

    When making a new restriction and an agenda window is
    currently visible, it will immediately be updated to reflect
    the new scope.  TO if you like you can display an agenda view
    and then watch it change in various scopes.

    To get rid of the restriction, use the command "C-c C-x >".
    Or press ">" in the agenda dispatcher.  Also, and use of "<"
    in the dispatcher will disable the restriction lock and
    select a new restriction.

    Thanks to Rick Moynihan for triggering this development.

Imenu and Speedbar support

    - Org-mode now supports Imenu.  For example, with the setting

       (add-hook 'org-mode-hook
          (lambda () 'imenu-add-to-menubar "Imenu"))

      a menu will be created in each Org-mode buffer that
      provides access to all level 1 and level 2 headings.  The
      depth of the menu can be set with the variable

    - org-mode now supports Speedbar.  This means that you can
      drill into the first and second level headlines of an
      Org-mode file right from the speedbar frame.

    - You can set a restriction lock for the Org-mode agenda to a
      file or a subtree directly from the speedbar frame.  Just
      press "<" with the cursor on an Org-mode file or subtree to
      set the lock and immediately update the agenda if it is
      visible.  Use ">" to get rid of the lock again.
