Release Notes

### Added
- `PSUseSupportsShouldProcess` rule to discourage manual `whatif` and `confirm` parameter declarations.
- Suggested corrections to `PSProvideCommentHelp` rule. The rule can now be configured to:
   - trigger on non-exported functions. But by default, the rule triggers only on exported functions that do have comment help.
   - place the suggested corrections either before a function definition, or at the beginning or end of a function's body.
   - choose between block comment or line comment style of suggested comment help correction.

### Fixed
- `PSAlignAssignmentStatement` to align assignment statements in DSC configurations that have *Undefined DSC Resource* parse errors.
