Doxygen Support in Eclipse CDT

Since a long time I was wondering why CDT, the C++ support for the Eclipse IDE, doesn't have a decent support for highlighting and creating comments in the Doxygen format. Today, while searching for customizable code templates per project, I found the setting to enable Doxygen support. It is located in the project properties at "C/C++ General". Not that intuitive…

Doxygen settings in Eclipse
Enable Doxygen support for Eclipse CDT.

With this, Doxygen tags in comments are highlighted and comments with parameters etc. are generated automatically like in Java. What's still missing is the auto-formatter support for these comments and tag-completion.
