- All drill items now receive unique IDs (using the org-id module). This allows
various clever tricks such as 'synching' the item collections of two
people. At the beginning of a drill session, IDs are assigned automatically
to all drill items that do not possess them. This is slow if you have a large
collection, but it only happens once.
- New command 'org-drill-merge-buffers'. Called from buffer A, and given buffer
B, imports all the user-specific scheduling data from B into A, overwriting
any such information in A. Matching items are identified by their ID. Any
items in B that do not exist in A are copied to A. A scenario where this
could be useful:
* Tim decides to learn Swedish using an item collection (org file) made
publically available by Jane. (Before publishing it Jane used
'org-drill-strip-all-data' to remove her personal scheduling data from the
collection.) A few weeks later, Jane updates her collection, adding new
items and revising some old ones. Tim downloads the new collection and
imports his progress from his copy of the old collection, using
'org-drill-merge-buffers'. He can then discard his old copy. Any items HE
added to HIS copy of the old collection will not be lost -- they will be
appended to his copy of the new collection.
- Instead of overdue items being reviewed in a completely random order, they
are now ordered by the number of days overdue, so that the most overdue items
are seen first. When two items are the same number of days overdue, then the
order is random.
- slightly adjusted how 'random noise' is applied to intervals, to give wider
- we now use the port of the Common Lisp random number generator, in cl.el,
instead of emacs' builtin RNG
- Random number generator is now reseeded using system time at the beginning of
each drill session.
- Hints inside clozed text areas are now invisible during drill sessions if the
clozed text is not itself being hidden, ie if your card contains
[Moscow|Russian city] you will only see [Moscow] in the answer.
- The '...' is now shown after the hint text rather than before it,
i.e. '[Russian city...]'. You can override this by actually including '...'
in the hint itself.
- The minibuffer prompt now displays the card 'type' for testing purposes, as a
single letter: N=new, Y=young, o=old, !=overdue, F=failed
- New card type: hide2cloze (hides exactly 2 randomly chosen areas of clozed
