Specifying the documentation at the place where the enumeration values are defined works:

/** @brief A foo enumeration. */
enum class Foo
    A, /**< @brief The first value. */
    B, /**< @brief The second value. */

Documenting the enumeration type outside the definition works:

/** @enum Foo
  * @brief A foo enumeration.

However, documenting the values outside the definition does not:

/** @var Foo A
  * @brief The first value.

/** @var Foo B
  * @brief The second value.

Nor does qualifying the values:

/** @var Foo Foo::A
  * @brief The first value.

/** @var Foo Foo::B
  * @brief The second value.

These all work for C++98/03 enumeration values.
