Re: [O] Regression: org-translate-link doesn't work correctly in Org 8.3

Great! Thanks!

2 questions, though.

1. Previously, the type of the link was "thisfile", now it's "custom-id" and also, the leading hash is removed from the link. Let's consider the [[#about][About]] example once again. Previously, I was given ("thisfile" . "#about") and I changed this to ("thisfile" . "About"), which then worked like a charm. Now, I'm given ("custom-id" . "about"), which I don't know how I should translate. Neither of ("custom-id" . "About") or ("id" . "About") work. What should it be?

BTW, there's a line (require 'ord-id) in org-open-at-point function in master. Probably, it's a typo (should be (require 'org-id))

2. When those fixes will be available in MELPA?

Best regards,

Done. There is one foreseeable incompatible change however. When link
type is unknown to Org, it is reported as fuzzy, e.g.:


is seen as ("fuzzy" "foobar:something") by
`org-link-translation-function', not ("foobar" "something"), unless
"foobar" belong to `org-link-types'.

In practice I don't think it matters because
`org-link-translation-function' isn't meant to create new link types but
handle conflicting link types. In any case, in the example above, one
can always use

  (when (and (string= type "fuzzy")
             (string-match "\\(.*?\\):\\(.*\\)" path))
   (cons (match-string 1) (match-string 2)))

in `org-link-translation-function'.
