We recently upgraded to this from a very wonky redmine 1.2 setup. Most of our users actually just interface through email, but we've noticed that the new version is automatically html escaping everything.

I think the fix is to modify the templates to add .html_safe where appropriate to the text templates. But there might be a more elegant way as I can't claim to know much ruby nor rails.

Anyhow, please advise if there is a better way, I'm happy to submit a patch if not.
