Release Notes

* Carbon should now import in less than a second.
* Fixed: `Grant-CHttpUrlPermission` documentation uses command named `Grant-CHttpUrlAclPermission`. (Fixes [issue 66](https://github.com/webmd-health-services/Carbon/issues/66).)
* Fixed: `Enable-CNtfsCompression` always enables compression even if compression is already enabled.
* Fixed: `Disable-CNtfsCompression` always disables compression even if compression is already disabled.
* Fixed: `Uninstall-CService` can write an error when a service's process exits at unexpected times.
* Fixed: `Get-CUser` can sometimes take 60 to 90 seconds to lookup a specific user.
* Fixed: `Get-CGroup` can sometimes take 60 to 90 seconds to lookup a specific group.
* Improved `Set-CEnvironmentVariable` and `Remove-CEnvironmentVariable` functions' reliability when setting and removing variables for a specific user (they now use `Start-Job` instead of Carbon's `Invoke-CPowerShell`).
* Fixed: Carbon was hiding the ServerManager module's `Get-WindowsFeature`, `Install-WindowsFeature`, and `Uninstall-WindowsFeature` cmdlets (fixes issue #55).
* Fixed: `Set-CHostsEntry` can sometimes clear the hosts file (fixes issue #39).
* Fixed: `Get-CServiceConfiguration` fails with a terminating exception if a service doesn't exist.
