Example where *.xx file is ignored

It seems FILE_PATTERNS ignores arbitrary extensions, only "known" ones are recognized. I set it like this:

FILE_PATTERNS = *.hh *.xx

But all *.xx files are ignored.
Example is attached. There are "index.hh" and "index.xx"; in "Related pages" only "index.hh" is listed. I tested also 1.8.9 and 1.8.8 - the same problem. Though in all is OK - both "index.hh" and "index.xx" are listed in "Related pages".

There has been a change in newer versions of doxygen in respect to extensions. In the past unknown extensions were treated as (by head) C code. By defining in the EXTENSION_MAPPING the correct language for the xx file extension it should work again.

I suggest to set this to RESOLVED - NOT A BUG

After I set the EXTENSION_MAPPING, custom extensions could be processed. However it is not written anywhere in the manual. I believe the following note has to be added to FILE_PATTERNS description:

Note that for custom extensions you also need to set EXTENSION_MAPPING otherwise the files are not read by doxygen.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.10. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferably in the form of a self-contained example).
