Example fragment:

/** @file
* \brief \htmlinclude block_aim/description.txt
* \htmlinclude result_help.txt
* \verbinclude block_aim/auto_result.txt

In versions up to 1.5.4 (Debian) above fragment caused Doxygen to put text from given file to brief descriptions on the files page. In later versions (tried 1.5.5, 1.5.6, 1.7.1 and svn trunk) the included text does not appear on the brief listings, but in the details. Like \htmlinclude always ends the \brief.

I could not find anything in the Changelog and in the manual that this change in behavior has been intentional. I also couldn't find any configuration option that affects the behavior.

We have been using Doxygen successfully in maybe a little creative way to annotate the files listing page of test code with additional information from our test framework. We have found that feature very useful and are thus also using it a lot. Please consider restoring the functionality.

When running version 1.7.1 (and some earlier versions) on the example the message:

warning: included file block_aim/description.txt is not found. Check your EXAMPLE_PATH

is given (although the the EXAMPLE_PATH is set and the file block_aim/description.txt exists).
In version 1.7.2 and 1.8.14 the message is not given and the brief text is shown at the 'brief' place.

I think the problem has been solved in the mean time.
