Summary0021837: Text-based change log
Description

When i used the 1.x branch, i used to copy/paste when the Change Log displayed in order to post this to my mailing list, on forums,... to announce changes in my products.

Now with 2.x formatting, this is no longer possible.
I'd like to have the opportunity to display change log in a pure text formatting (even if i have to click on a "export as text" option on a given change log for a specific version.

TagsNo tags attached.

Works for me. Tried using Safari and Firefox on MacOs.
Marked some lines in changelog, copied the lines, opened a pure text editor, pasted the lines.

I think what @Kyle_Katarn means, is that the copy/paste results is no longer nicely formatted, i.e. compare

I have no strong opinion on this.

The goal of @syncguru was to provide a nice UI when viewing the change log via browser.

There could be

  • a check box in change log and roadmap UI to switch between HTML and TEXT mode, or
  • a configuration option (global or as a user preference) to switch between HTML and TEXT mode
