Hi Anders,

we generate doxyfiles using cmake. This can produce html, htmlhelp and
latex/pdf files for our products. Now we are testing out combining
this with markdown files (requires doxygen 1.8) and using pandoc to be
more flexible regarding output formats. Markdown is nice, but I can't
say that it is better (or worse) than rst (reStructuredText), which
seems to be the selection of some "big" players (like CMake).

Anyway, we need a system that can regenerate documentation every night
and currently we do that using CMake, doxygen (with markdown support)
and pandoc.
