If we enter release notes with Markdown, they appear correctly in the Octopus site, but when being sent in an HTML email from a deployment step, the markdown appears instead of being formatted as HTML.
For now you can wrap the markdown in
<pre></pre> tags to get a semi-decent looking output in HTML; I’ll add HTML formatted options in a future release.
This is a heavily requested fix from my end users.
