WordPress Adds Native Markdown Support

Markdown Extra is the first plugin I install on any copy of WordPress I administrate (I disable it when I’m not using it on copies I don’t actually own). It’s been nine years since Markdown was first introduced as a markup language for writers; though WordPress has substantially involved since then, at its core, it is still a bogging tool. About time. But I’m not complaining.
