Release Notes

* Updated bundled UWP Toolkit to 1.4.1
   * Note that this caused an issue where strings were being wrapped with curly braces in end results. A workaround has been implemented, but could mean that if you legitimatly use some rather obscure strings, they may have the braces removed.
* Hero Images working now (Thanks to Creators Update)
* Headers can now be included (Creators Update feature)
* Progress bars can now be included (Creators Update feature)
* Specify a unique identifier in order to replace existing toasts
* You can specify a custom sound file using the -Path parameter of the New-BTAudio function. This hasn't been exposed through the main function... that poor thing is getting bloated.
* There is now help for every public function, and the online version for each of them can be found on github. Specify the -Online switch when using Get-Help to be taken directly there.
