I'm happy to announce that MarkdownPad 2.3 includes support for an offline version of GitHub Flavored Markdown, so you no longer need an active network connection or have to log into your GitHub account to use GitHub Flavored Markdown. While the offline GFM processor doesn't offer quite as many features as the online processor (like emoji and task lists), it's a great alternative for creating GFM-compatible documents offline.
In addition to the new Markdown processor, a lot of effort has been put into simplifying and improving the usage of other existing Markdown processors. You can now quickly change Markdown processors without opening the Options window by using the "Quick Markdown Selector" button in the status bar, making it easier than ever to quickly change processors while editing a document.
Existing Markdown processors have also been simplified for easier use:
Note: Because of these improvements, you may find that your currently selected Markdown processor was reset to "Markdown" after updating to MarkdownPad 2.3. After the update, this will not happen again.
