** Todo mode has been rewritten and enhanced.
New features include:
- support for multiple todo files and archive files of done items;
- renaming, reordering, moving, merging, and deleting categories;
- sortable tabular summaries of categories and the types of items they contain;
- cross-category lists of items filtered by specific criteria;
- more fine-grained interaction with the Emacs diary, by being able to decide
for each todo item whether it appears in the Fancy Diary display;
- highly flexible new item insertion and item editing;
- moving items between categories, storing done items in their category or in
archive files, undoing or unarchiving done items;
- reprioritizing items by inputting a numerical priority;
- extensive customizability of operation and display, including numerous faces.
The Todo mode user manual describes all commands and most user options.
To support some of these features, a new file format is used, which is
incompatible with the old format; however, you can convert old todo and done
item files to the new format on initializing the first new todo file, or at any
later time with the provided conversion command. The old version of
todo-mode.el has been made obsolete and renamed otodo-mode.el.
** trace-function was largely rewritten.
New features include:
- no prompting for the destination buffer, unless a prefix-arg was used.
- additionally to prompting for a destination buffer, when a prefix-arg is
used, the user can enter a "context", i.e. Lisp expression whose value at the
time the function is entered/exited will be printed along with the function
name and arguments. Useful to trace the value of (current-buffer) or
(point) when the function is invoked.
