doxygen sample project

If you are writing some piece text that references a C++ 11 enum class, doxygen will not create a link on that reference (but it will if you use the old-style enum. For example:

class Glyph {
enum class Default {
Circle, //!< An unfilled circle.
CircleWithDot, //!< An unfilled circle with a dot in the center.
CircleWithPlus, //!< An unfilled circle with a plus sign in the center.

If I type


no link is created. But if I type the old style


the link is created. I think it should create a link on the new style enum class. See sample project attachment.
