- 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 …

- Added new example card types, more useful than 'spanish_verb': - 'conjugate': retrieves properties VERB_INFINITIVE and VERB_TRANSLATION from parent item, and uses its own property VERB_TENSE to prompt the student 'Translate the verb INFINITIVE and conjugate for the TENSE tense' or 'Give the verb meaning TRANSLATION and conjugate for the TENSE tense' - 'translate_number': using third party library spell-number.el, prompt the student to tran…

- 'multicloze' card type renamed to 'hide1cloze' (though 'multicloze' is still recognised as a synonym, for backwards compatibility) - new card type 'show1cloze' -- like hide1cloze, but only reveals one of the areas of clozed text in the item. - when 'revealing' an item during a drill session, do not show contents of any subheadings which are themselves tagged as drill items. This means you can have drill items inside drill items, without giving their answers …

- More robust handling of the situation where we resume a drill session but some items have been moved or deleted. We now check for this and discard offending markers, rather than failing outright. - Final report now shows number of items that will become due tomorrow. - Fixed a rounding bug which affected deciding whether items are 'overdue'.

- Can now resume drill sessions after exiting with (e)dit or (q)uit commands! Use 'M-x org-drill-resume'. - Finessed the prioritisation of items during drill sessions. - We now present failed and OVERDUE items first. Overdue status is defined in days and has some leeway, defined by a new variable 'org-drill-overdue-interval-factor'. - Next we present YOUNG items (learned or relearned recently, so have short intervals). The definition of 'young' is via the vari…

Many changes: - Item drill data is stored in a clearer format, each value has its own property, the old 'org-learn' LEARN_DATA property has been dropped. Items that contain LEARN_DATA are silently rolled over to the new format. - For SM5, matrix of optimal factors is now correctly *global* rather than per-item, and is saved between drill sessions as an emacs customization variable. - We store interval dat…

- New option: org-drill-hide-item-headings-p. If non-nil, item headings will be made invisible while each item is being tested. - OF matrix entries are rounded to 3 decimal places. - Item E-factors are not modified if the item is "failed" (in accordance with Dr Wozniak's description of the SM5 algorithm).

- Hide comments (#...) in items during drill sessions. - Fix bug where if a subheading was more than 1 level deeper than the tested item, and had no parent heading other than the item's heading, it would not be hidden during testing.

* Documentation added for multicloze cards and cram mode. * Multicloze card example added in 'spanish.org'.

Separate counts of pending new, old, and failed items are displayed in custom colours during review and in the final report. A timer (MM:SS) is displayed as part of the review prompt. Order-of-magnitude speed boost when scanning entries to prepare a drill session. Recycle markers at the end of each drill session.

Allow editing and tag-editing when prompted for recall quality. Allow tag-editing when reviewing items. Any linked image files are displayed inline during review. Don't hide org links [[...][...]] when hiding cloze text, azs they may contain inline images which we want to keep visible. Close property drawers during review. Provide visual feedback (progress bar in minibuffer) when scanning items in preparation for a drill session.

Added implementation of SM2 algorithm. Add option 'org-drill-spaced-repetition-algorithm': choose either SM2 or SM5 algorithm. Add option 'org-drill-add-random-noise-to-intervals-p': randomly vary repetition intervals slightly, to avoid clumping. Fixed a bug in org-learn's SM5 algorithm (intervals much too long). Use overlays to display cloze deletions as '[...]' during reviews. Cloze text can contain hints, which will visible during r…

Added README with more detailed documentation. Items which are failed during session are presented again before the session ends. Items which were failures at the last review session are presented first in the next session. Added recognition of leech items, based on excessive number of failures. Leeches can be skipped or warned about. When reviewing an item, the prompt shows the number of items remaining. When the session finishes, the minibuf…
