I presume you mean "8.04" there, and the answer is a qualified "no".
Once released, the criteria for updating a package (via a Stable
Release Update, or SRU[1]) are dramatically tightened, the default
response is "no", and the aim is to fix suitable bugs with the least
possible change.

You could request and test a backport[2] of the Intrepid version to
8.04, if the new Doxygen package has features you particularly want.
Users will, in general, not have the backport repository enabled,
