### Changed
- #114/#115: `Invoke-Vester` is **more than twice as fast** now! We removed repeated `Get` calls within private file `VesterTemplate.Tests.ps1`. Big thanks to @Midacts/@jpsider/@jonneedham for collaborating on this.
- #118/#119: `Config.json` files now sort their settings within each scope.

### Fixed
- #90: `Invoke-Vester -Test $TestList` should execute all tests in the array, instead of just the final one after ignoring the rest. Now they do again.
- #99: Re-implemented `-PassThru` on `Invoke-Vester`.
- #116/#129: The name of the active vCenter connection was not being reported properly.
- Cleaned up VM test files:
 - Tools-DiskWiperDisable
 - Tools-HGFS-ServerDisable

### Much :heart:
