Remove CommonMark experimental flag and mark as deprecated the RedCarpet Markdown
Updated by Holger Just over 1 year ago
For what it's worth, I'm in favor of
- Removing the experimental flag on the common_mark formatter
- Marking the previous markdown formatter as deprecated
- Making the common_mark formatter the default for new installations #34863
The timeline of this may be stretched out a bit, but does not necessarily have to. The deprecation / experimental "flags" on the formatters do not change anything in terms of functionality and can be set in a 5.0.x patch release.
The default formatter is only relevant for new installations. I have no strong opinion on whether this requires a major release (6.0.0) or minor release (5.1.0). I have a slight hunch that it might be surprising in a patch release (5.0.x).

admin/infofor those instances that are using this option.
I agree. I think such a warning is helpful to encourage admins to migrate to CommonMark Markdown.
