linkbreak in GitLab is a headcahe for our users https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/markdown.html#line-breaks

free GitLab account has no edit history. I think it's a important feature for private development

What specifically about line breaks is a headache? Would you prefer that pressing "Enter" automatically inserted a line break?

As for edit history, I'm assuming you are talking about the description edit history. If so, we had an open conversation (https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/-/issues/10103#note_206...) about why we placed the feature in Starter and above. If you'd like to continue the convo, please open a new issue with your proposal. If you are talking about a different edit history, please clarify so I can better understand your perspective. Thank you for the feedback!

Yes, I perferred "Enter" for linebreak. Double "Enter" just not the best for us. Sometimes, we drafted the comment or description somehwere before copy into Gitlab. All lose! Some of our customers given up to fix the format and post screenshot PHOTO directly. It's very frustrating.

Regarding the edit history,

both description & comments edit history are important to me. We can only afford our freequent customers and one time projects. You know, many projects holding for months and no earning at all but you can't cut it.

Thanks for your feedback! Please open an issue with your proposal: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/-/issues
