Description

Nowadays, markdown is much more used and known compared with textile. Also, in Redmine, Markdown has better support.

My proposal is to change the default setting from textile to markdown.

Since it is not possible to change the text formatter setting for each project in Redmine, there is also the problem that it is difficult to change to Markdown once you start using it with Textile.
I think it's better to use the commonly used Markdown as the default.

Markdown is used in many text systems (GitHub, Slack, ...etc). Therefore, setting this as the default will improve portability.

it's possible using grep, sed, and pandoc. but it's a real PITA

Markdown is also the better choice for the 'average guy' and has easier to adopt by non IT people.

Setting the target version to 5.0.0.

I think the best option is to change to CommonMark when we will remove the experimental flag.

Now that CommonMark feature was added to the core, for sure we should not set the old Markdown as default, but at the same time, it's pity to keep textile as default.

Maybe is better to set CommonMark even is it marked as experimental? Or even remove the experimental flag?
