As of release 8.0, Org-mode has transitioned to a new export framework, authored primarily (entirely?) by Nicolas Goaziou…
Perhaps this could be filled in with some of the technical reasons and advantages of the new exporter by Nicolas or someone else familiar with with it's inner workings?
For instructions on how to upgrade from the previous Org-mode exporter, see the upgrade guide.
Nicolas' official announcement of the exporter may be viewed at the Org-mode mailing list post. This document presents an overview of features, as well as a list of currently supported exporter backends. Exporting and publishing are also documented in the Org-mode manual. See ox-docstrings and org-element-docstrings for the extracted docstrings from these two core libraries of the new Org-mode exporter, i.e. for detailled technical information about the exporter framework.
List of Org-mode exporters
Please find below a list of current Org-mode exporters, the location of the backend elisp
file (relative to downloaded Org-mode installation directory,
org) and links Worg and
Org-mode manual documentation.

- (1) DocBook export, available in previous Org-mode versions, has not currently been ported
to the new exporter, however the new
ox-texinfobackend can generate DocBook format. Once
