Release Notes

- Computer:
 - Fix for "directory service is busy" error when joining a domain and renaming
   a computer when JoinOU is specified - Fixes [Issue 221](https://github.com/PowerShell/ComputerManagementDsc/issues/221).
- Added new resource SmbShare
 - Moved and improved from deprecated module xSmbShare.
- Changes to ComputerManagementDsc.Common
 - Updated Test-DscParameterState so it now can compare zero item
   collections (arrays).
- Changes to WindowsEventLog
 - Minor style guideline cleanup.
- Opt-in to common test to validate localization. Fixed localization strings
 in resources - Fixes [Issue 217](https://github.com/PowerShell/ComputerManagementDsc/issues/217).
- PowerShellExecutionPolicy:
 - Removed `SupportsShouldProcess` as it cannot be used with DSC - Fixes
   [Issue 219](https://github.com/PowerShell/ComputerManagementDsc/issues/219).
- Combined all ComputerManagementDsc.ResourceHelper module functions into
 ComputerManagementDsc.Common module - Fixes [Issue 218](https://github.com/PowerShell/ComputerManagementDsc/issues/218).
 - Minor code cleanup against style guideline.
 - Remove code from `New-InvalidOperationException` because it was a
   code path that could never could be used due to the parameter
   validation preventing the helper function being called that way.
 - Updated all `Get-LocalizationData` to latest version from
   [DSCResource.Template](https://github.com/PowerShell/DSCResource.Template).
 - Fixed an issue with the helper function `Test-IsNanoServer` that
   prevented it to work. Though the helper function is not used, so this
   issue was not caught until now when unit tests was added.
 - Improved code coverage.
