Release Notes

* Carbon is now *importable* on PowerShell Core on all platforms. Most functions will not work on Linux/MacOS since they are Windows-specific. Many functions will also not work on PowerShell Core. The next major version of Carbon, 3, should fully support PowerShell Core on Windows.
* `Get-CScheduledTask` can now return `RegisteredTask` objects from the Scheduler.Service COM API. Use the new `AsComObject` switch. Getting COM objects is an order of magnitude faster than the old way.
* Fixed: `Get-CScheduledTask` isn't able to parse some task information returned on Windows 10.
* Deprecated `Test-CWindowsFeature`.
* Fixed: `Get-CComPermission` fails when there are permission to a non-existent identity.
* Fixed: looking up local users/groups is extremely slow on some machines.
