there is a regression going from to 1.8.0 for any documentation line that starts with a link to an enumeration type. See the following testcase:


  • None
  • #test_enum_1 this does not link correctly
  • this links correctly #test_enum_1
  • @note
  • this links correctly #test_enum_1,
  • #test_enum_1 this does not link correctly
  • done
    struct test
    • test enum
      enum testEnum {
      • First test enum

No configuration changes necessary to reproduce the failure.
