Link to the API change report in Markdown:
(Thanks to Steven for the nice Markdown version).
This is a follow up ticket from the discussion/comments on PR 808: https://github.com/unicode-org/icu/pull/808#discussion_r321947773
When the API change report was generated for ICU 65 RC, the macros: U_NAMESPACE_BEGIN, U_NAMESPACE_QUALIFIER and U_NAMESPACE_END showed up as disappeared and/or removed.
This was due to the following change: which was originally intended to clean up C++ macros from being present in C headers.
The comment from Steven on the PR was that it might be necessary to define __cplusplus=1 in the Doxygen config file for the API change report.
In ICU 65 RC the macros are only defined if __cplusplus is defined. Otherwise they don't exist.
In previous versions of ICU, the macros were defined to nothing/empty if __cplusplus wasn't defined.
We may want to keep the macros being defined to nothing/empty, but with the additional condition of U_SHOW_CPLUSPLUS_API being defined as well, in order to support users of ICU that are using a C++ compiler but only want to use C APIs.
