* Version 9.5

** Important announcements and breaking changes

*** The =contrib/= now lives in a separate repository

Org's repository has been trimmed from the =contrib/= directory.

The old contents of the =contrib/= directory now lives in a separate
repository at

You can install this repository by cloning it and updating your
~load-path~ accordingly.  You can also install =org-contrib= as a
[[][NonGNU ELPA]] package.

*** Org ELPA and Org archives won't be available for Org > 9.5

[[][Org ELPA]] is still available for installing 
Org 9.5, either with or
without contributed packages, but future versions won't be available
via Org ELPA, as we are deprecating this installation method.

Also, Org 9.5 is available as =tar.gz= and =zip= archives, but this
installation method is also deprecated.

If you want to install the latest stable versions of Org, please use
the GNU ELPA package.  If you want to install the contributed files,
please use the NonGNU ELPA package.  If you want to keep up with the
latest unstable Org, please install from the Git repository.

See for the details.

*** =ditaa.jar= is not bundled with Org anymore

=ditaa.jar= used to be bundled with Org but it is not anymore.
See [[][the ditaa repository]] on how to 
install it.

*** ~org-adapt-indentation~ now defaults to =nil=

If you want to automatically indent headlines' metadata, set it to

If you want to automatically indent every line to the headline's
current indentation, set it to =t=.

Indent added by =RET= and =C-j= also depends on the value of
~electric-indent-mode~.  Enabling this mode by default in 9.4 revealed
some bugs caused confusing behavior.  If you disabled
~electric-indent-mode~ for this reason, it is time to try it again.
Hopefully problems have been fixed.  See 
[[][this FAQ]] for more 

*** ~org-speed-commands-user~ is obsolete, use ~org-speed-commands~

Setting ~org-speed-commands-user~ in your configuration won't have any
effect.  Please set ~org-speed-commands~ instead, which see.

*** Some =ob-*.el= files have been moved to the org-contrib repo

These files have been moved to

- ob-abc.el
- ob-asymptote.el
- ob-coq.el
- ob-ebnf.el
- ob-hledger.el
- ob-io.el
- ob-J.el
- ob-ledger.el
- ob-mscgen.el
- ob-picolisp.el
- ob-shen.el
- ob-stan.el

See the discussion [[][here]].

*** Compatibility with Emacs versions

We made it explicit that we aim at keeping the latest stable version
of Org compatible with at least Emacs V, V-1 and V-2, where V is the
stable major version of Emacs.

For example, if the current major version of Emacs is 28.x, then the
latest stable version of Org should be compatible with Emacs 28.x,
27.x and 26.x – but not with Emacs 25.x.

See [[][this 
note on Worg]] and [[git::519947e508e081e71bf67db99e27b1c171ba4dfe][this 

*** The keybinding for ~org-table-blank-field~ has been removed

If you prefer to keep the keybinding, you can add it back to
~org-mode-map~ like so:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c SPC") #'org-table-blank-field)

** New features

*** New citation engine

Org 9.5 provides a new library =oc.el= which provides tooling to
handle citations in Org, e.g., activate, follow, insert, and export
