When creating a new doxyfile, the file list for FILE_PATTERNS mentioned in the comment block generated doesn't include .md or .markdown extensions.

Running a new doxygen file over a directory containing .md files skips them so it seems the default behaviour if FILE_PATTERNS are not specified doesn't include .md files.

The help page doesn't say that these files have to be explicitly added to the FILE_PATTERNS so I am presuming this is a bug.


  1. default behaviour should include .md and .markdown extensions
  2. the self-documenting comment block for FILE_PATTERNS in a new Doxyfile should be changed to match 1)
