If two strongly typed enums use the same constant, the generated documenet for an enum contains both explanation texts if identical even thought the enum is typed.

enum class eTest1
OK, //!< This is OK
NOT_OK //!< this is not OK

enum class eTest2
OK, //!< this is also OK
FAIL, //!< this is a fail


enum eTest1

This is OK
This is also OK <====== this should not be here

This is not OK

enum eTest2

This is OK <====== this should not be here
This is also OK

This is a fail

Confirmed. I'll add support for these enums in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 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.

Regular enums will display description of members.

Uh oh... I don't know why but the description text "Enumerator:" of strongly typed enums' single members will not be displayed in my HTML output. Changing the declaration back to regular enums will let them appear immediately (see attached images).

enum Test
/// This is bla.
/// This is foo.

HTML output:

This is bla.
This is foo.

And now the new variant:

enum class Test
/// This is bla.
/// This is foo.

No HTML output of the decription text! I'm using version
