Do not render soft line breaks in Markdown as <br>

I noticed that there was a recent change to the Markdown renderer: soft line breaks used to be rendered as a space but as of today they are rendered as <br>.

For example, this markdown:

hello
world

Used to translate to “hello world”, now it is “hello
world”.

This change breaks the formatting in my documents. Is there an option to revert to the old behavior, perhaps on a per-repository basis?

It’s odd but the old behavior seems to have been restored today. Was the change unintentional?
