Its great to see that Redmine also supports markdown in the meantime. However in the current version 4.1 the Markdown Features are quite limited.
Its missing some basics things like scaling pictures, and some more advanced things like ```math blocks which would render inline Latex.

It would be great if Redmine would include something like kramdown or GitLab Flavored Markdown

Would this be possible to include ? Both projects are already available as ruby gems. That fits good.

WIKI has become a strategic Element for us. Particular as it's tightly integrated (issue/version linking). MARKDOWN is our Teams common "Doc language".
We also export WIKI Articles as TXT (in Markdown) to re-use them in markdown based Documentation. The redcarpet gem for MD isn't up to date in terms of support eg image scaling or notification boxes.

  • Resolution set to Fixed

We have just introduced "CommonMark Markdown (Github Flavored)" for Redmine 5.0.0. Please take a look on it (#32424) and open new issues for the missing features. I'm closing this as fixed because I think we covered the request to support a more modern parser.
