Markdown line breaks are rendered in Marked 2

I'm trying Marked 2 out, and one of the things I find odd about the rendered view is that a single line break is
treated as a new paragraph in the output. I typically write in ~80 character lines, using newlines in the middle
of a paragraph to break up long text. I believe Markdown should render two newlines as a new paragraph,
but Marked treats a single newline as the start of a new paragraph.

Is this intended functionality in Marked 2? My expected outcome is that two newlines starts a new paragraph,
but a single line break is ignored by the rendering engine.

    Hi Joshua,

    Is it possible that under Preferences->Processor you have "Retain line
    breaks in paragraphs" enabled?
