* Version 9.7 (not released yet)
** Important announcements and breaking changes
*** "Priority" used to sort items in agenda is renamed to "urgency"

Previously, ~priority-up~ and ~priority-down~ in
~org-agenda-sorting-strategy~ used a composite rank depending on
item's priority (=[#A]=, =[#B]=, =[#C]=, etc) and overdue time to
order agenda items (see "11.4.3 Sorting of agenda items" section of
Org manual).

Now, this composite rank is renamed to =urgency= and the relevant
sorting strategies are renamed to ~urgency-up~ and ~urgency-down~.
~priority-up~ and ~priority-down~ sort by item's priority only.

Users relying on the previous composite ranking should adjust their
agenda sorting settings.

*** =python-mode.el (MELPA)= support in =ob-python.el= is removed

=python-mode.el= support has been removed from =ob-python.el=.  The
related customization =org-babel-python-mode= has been changed to a

If you still want to use python-mode with ob-python, you might
[[][ob-python-mode-mode]], where 
the code to support python-mode
has been ported to.

*** =ox-icalendar.el= line ending fix may affect downstream packages

iCalendar export now uses dos-style CRLF ("\r\n") line endings
throughout, as required by the iCalendar specification (RFC 5545).
Previously, the export used an inconsistent mix of dos and unix line

This might cause errors in external packages that parse output from
ox-icalendar.  In particular, older versions of org-caldav may
encounter issues, and users are advised to update to the most recent
version of org-caldav.  See 
 org-caldav commit]] for more information.

** New and changed options
*** New customization ~org-image-max-width~ limiting the displayed inline image 

New custom variable ~org-image-max-width~ limits the maximum inline
image width, but only when the inline image width is not explicitly
set via ~org-image-actual-width~, =ORG-IMAGE-ACTUAL-WIDTH= property,
or =#+ATTR*= keyword.

By default, when ~org-image-actual-width~ is set to t,
~org-image-max-width~ takes effect.  Its default value is set to
~fill-column~, limiting the image previews to ~fill-column~ number of

To fall back to previous defaults, where the inline image width is not
constrained, set ~org-image-max-width~ to nil.

*** ~org-src-block-faces~ now accepts empty string ~""~ as language name

It is now possible to customize face of source blocks without language 

: #+begin_src
: Source block with no language
: #+end_src

For example, to set ~highlight~ face, use

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(setq org-src-fontify-natively t)
(add-to-list 'org-src-block-faces '("" highlight))

*** New ~org-cite-natbib-export-bibliography~ option defining fallback 
bibliography style

~natbib~ citation export processor now uses
~org-cite-natbib-export-bibliography~ (defaults to ~unsrtnat~) as a
fallback bibliography style if none is specified by user in
=#+cite_export:= keyword.

Previously, export would fail without explicitly selected bibliography

*** New escape in ~org-beamer-environments-extra~ for labels in Beamer export
The escape =%l= in ~org-beamer-environments-extra~ inserts the label
obtained from ~org-beamer--get-label~.  This is added to the default
environments =theorem=, =definition=, =example=, and =exampleblock= in

*** ~org-clock-x11idle-program-name~ now defaults to =xprintidle=, when
