[Octave] Fix exception raising for newer Octave versions
Since (at least) Octave 5.1.0, the Octave error() function now raises a C++ exception,
which if uncaught immediately exits a SWIG wrapper function, bypassing any cleanup code
that may appear after a "fail:" label. This patch adds a "try { ... } catch(...) { }"
block around the contents of SWIG wrapper functions to first execute the cleanup code
before rethrowing any exception raised. It is backward compatible with earlier versions
of Octave where error() does not raise an exception, which will still branch to the
"fail:" block to execute cleanup code if an error is encountered.
Note that the new "try { ... } catch(...) { }" block will localise any local variables
used in typemaps that were NOT declared through SWIG's %typemap(...) syntax, so it's
possible this could break existing SWIG wrappers which were implicitly sharing local
variables between typemaps. This can be fixed, however, by declaring local variables
which need to be shared between typemaps through SWIG's %typemap(...) syntax.

[R] #1511 Fix bug wrapping functions. These were previously incorrectly wrapped as if
they were variables. This happened when 'get' or 'set' was in the name of the function
or method, but sometimes also in some other circumstances. If you were using R
attribute syntax to access these methods, you'll need to switch to calling them as R

2020-01-16: mcfarljm

#1608 Improve doxygen support.
- Add support for \param[] commands such as: \param[in].
- Optional arguments are marked as 'optional' in pydoc.
- Improve support for \code commands so that other languages are supported as code blocks.
Support added for java, c and py. For example Python: \code{.py} ... \endcode
- Fix doxygen handling of \em and \p tags for Python.

[Python] #1595 Python -builtin constructors silently ignored keyword arguments.
Instead of silenty ignoring them, now a "TypeError: f() takes no keyword arguments"
exception is thrown if keyword arguments are used. Hence constructors and normal methods/
functions behave in the same way. Note, -keyword should be used with -builtin to obtain
keyword argument support.

[Python] #1670 #1696 Add missing field initializers introduced in python 3.8:
tp_vectorcall and tp_print.

2019-12-10: wsfulton
#1679 Fix parsing of C++11 identifiers with special meaning (final and override) when
they are used as part of the scope name of an identifier, such as a namespace name.
2019-11-26: wsfulton
[C#] #1628 'out' or 'ref' used in a cstype typemap was not always stripped out in parts
of director code generation.
2019-11-01: wsfulton
[Python] #1595 Fix bug in support for keyword arguments (kwargs feature or -keyword)
when using -builtin. The fix is in the argument error checking when wrapping zero
argument constructors only.
