This is great stuff! A little concern though: i got used to access the
stored links by hitting the tab key after org-insert-link.  Now the tab
key does the completion for prefixes (including abbreviated links), but
i had to explore a bit to guess that stored links where now accessible
through the history (with the <up> and <down> key).  It's okay for me
like this, but maybe some people would prefer the previous behavior,
i.e. accessing stored links by completion with the tab key. Or maybe
a wild mix of both?

Using a mix of both will probably not work well, because the only
advantage of using TAB is that, if you have only a single stored
link, it will give you that link with a single key press.  I have
always disliked the completion interface for selecting stored
links - it somehow does not work well when you have several links
stored.  Your proposal was therefore a welcome opportunity to
change this.

I guess the main problem is that the prompt does not clearly say
how to get to the stored links.

If you want to get to the link stored most recently, just reply RET
to the link prompt, this is even faster than TAB RET.

  - Highest, lowest, and default priority can be set on a per-file
  basis with #+PRIORITIES: H L D For example, to use priorities from 1
  to 9, you could use

      #+PRIORITIES: 1 9 9

I can't get it work. I tried to insert "#+PRIORITIES: A C B" at the end of a minimal preambule, then to C-c C-c to refresh the buffer; here is a
backtrace in attachment.

Fixed, thanks.

  - iCalendar export now honors (i.e. skips) subtrees marked as

Just a thought: maybe that would be more consistent to put "ARCHIVE" as
a special keyword (*before* the headline, like QUOTE or COMMENT) and not
as a tag?

Yes, that would also be an options - however, a tag works just fine,
so I'll leave it at that for now.

  - There is a new command to add or change the emphasis (like bold or
  italic) of a piece of text.

The interface is really very nice, thanks for implementing this!
