I have released version 4.65 at


Among other things, this release provides a way to maintain LaTeX tale using the orgtbl mode.


Changes in Version 4.65

* Overview

- Orgtbl can be used to maintain tables in LaTeX, and in any other mode
  - Editing Lisp formulas for table improved.
  - Better structure for HTML exported tables.
- New "calculation" marker "/" to mark lines that should not be exported.

* Detailed description of changes

  - You can use orgtbl mode to maintain a LaTeX table, or pretty much
    any table in any mode.

    This does *not* work by making Orgtbl aware of LaTeX syntax.  That
    would be a box of Pandora I am not willing to open.  Instead, you
    use a normal Orgtbl-mode table, and a converter program to
    automatically place a LaTeX version of the table into the correct
    spot in the LaTeX file.  The orgtbl-mode table can be maintained
    inside the same file, in a block comment.

    I am providing a translators for LaTeX, HTML, and TeXInfo.  For
    other applications, you need to write one yourself - but that is
    not hard if you start from the LaTeX version and just modify it.

    Please read the manual for details.

    Thanks to Thomas Baumann for triggering this development through
    a request for a table-to-LaTeX converter.

  - In the special buffer to edit the formulas of a table (created
    with "C-c '", there is now better support for editing Lisp
    formulas.  TAB and M-TAB work like in an Emacs Lisp buffer,
    indenting lines and completing lisp symbols.  With the cursor on
    a line defining a complex Lisp formula, a first press on TAB will
    convert the formula into a pretty-printed version with proper
    linebreaks and indentation.  A second TAB folds the line back to
    the compact form.

  - Tables in HTML export have now additional structure elements
    defined.  The header (before the first hline) is wrapped into
    <thead>..</thead>, and each part of the body (as separated in
    org-mode by hlines) is wrapped into <tbody>..</tbody> tags.  I
    have also changed the CSS style for <td> fields and the value of
    `org-export-html-table-tag' to get cleaner tables. Basically,
    tables now have horizontal lines only where needed, and no
    vertical lines at all, as generally recommended for tables in
    printed text.  I like the new look, but I am not sure if this
    change will find general approval, please throw in your view if
    you like.  Thanks to Scott for driving this, and to goud-H for
    pointing me to the row grouping in tables.

  - In a table with calculation markers in the first column, you can
    now also put "/" into the first column.  It indicates that this
    line should not be exported.  The foremost application for this
    are lines containing only "<N>" markers for narrowing columns.
