Example of brief comment:

  • Type (FLAC, DivX, MP3...) of a file.

Doxygen stops at the first dot and generates: "Type (FLAC, DivX, MP3" instead of "Type (FLAC, DivX, MP3...) of a file"

When JAVADOC_AUTOBRIEF is enabled a brief description ends with a .
It is possible to avoid this by adding an escaped space after the dot, i.e.
".\ "

For ellipsis this is not a good solution, so I'll adjust the parser for this.
An ellipsis followed by a non-space (as in your example) does not need to be escaped. An ellipsis that is followed by a space needs an escaped space, i.e.
"...\ "
