what is the default version of Pandoc with current RStudio?

I'm trying to use the task_lists extension of Markdown. I see that this requires Pandoc >=2.6.

This thread suggests that RStudio bundles a recent version of Pandoc but in my RStudio 1.2.5033 I see Pandoc 2.3.1.

So perhaps that thread is incorrect. Can anyone enlighten me?

Yes, the newer versions of the IDE have newer versions of Pandoc. For example, I'm running a preview build of RStudio 1.3 and I get:

#> [1] '2.9.2'

Created on 2020-03-10 by the reprex package (v0.3.0.9001)

I should have said I'm on a Mac.

For Rstudio preview version (1.3.895), I see Pandoc v. 2.7.3.
For current release (1.2.5033), I see Pandoc v. 2.3.1.

Seems odd that the same RStudio version would ship with different Pandoc versions depending on the OS. Anyone have any insights on what versions of RStudio provide which versions of Pandoc?

In the RStudio release notes I see notes that RStudio 1.2b upgraded to Pandoc 2.7.2 on Windows only and that RStudio 1.2 upgraded to 2.2.1. The preview release notes say Pandoc is being upgraded to 2.7.3. No mention of the 2.3.1 I see in RStudio now or the 2.9.2 Mara has in her RStudio preview.

Ah!! Sorry about that. I forgot that I upgraded my system pandoc. If you're on a mac and run homebrew, you can use:

brew upgrade pandoc
