Release Notes

# 0.7.0

* HEADLINE FEATURE: My People "Shoulder Tap" notifications have been implemented
* You can now specify images on the network via UNC paths. Fix for #56
* We're now properly supporting bindable text, and removing the curly braces more gracefully
* Get a list of all toasts you've sent, which have not been dismissed by the user, using Get-BTHistory
* Remove toasts you've sent, using Remove-BTNotification
* Set expiration times on toasts using the new ExpirationTime parameter on New-BurntToastNotification and Submit-BTNotification
 * Toasts which have expired are removed from the Action Center
* Send toasts directly to the Action Center, and avoid showing them on screen, with the new SuppressPopup switch on New-BurntToastNotification and Submit-BTNotification
* You can now adjust a toasts timestamp (both past and future) using the CustomTimestamp parameter on New-BurntToastNotification and New-BTContent
 * If not specified, the system uses the time at which the toast was received and this may not accuratly reflect the intent of the notification
