Release Notes

* Changes to xPSDesiredStateConfiguration
 * README.md: Fixed typo. [Steve Banik (@stevebanik-ndsc)](https://github.com/stevebanik-ndsc)
 * Adding a Branches section to the README.md with Codecov badges for both
   master and dev branch ([issue 416](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/416)).
* Changes to xWindowsProcess
 * Integration tests for this resource should no longer fail randomly. A timing
   issue made the tests fail in certain scenarios ([issue 420](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/420)).
* Changes to xDSCWebService
   * Added the option to use a certificate based on it"s subject and template name instead of it"s thumbprint. Resolves [issue 205](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/205).
   * xDSCWebService: Fixed an issue where Test-WebConfigModulesSetting would return $true when web.config contains a module and the desired state was for it to be absent. Resolves [issue 418](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/418).
* Updated the main DSCPullServerSetup readme to read easier, then updates the PowerShell comment based help for each function to follow normal help standards. [James Pogran (@jpogran)](https://github.com/jpogran)
* xRemoteFile: Remove progress bar for file download. This resolves issues [165](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/165) and [383](https://github.com/PowerShell/xPSDesiredStateConfiguration/issues/383) [Claudio Spizzi (@claudiospizzi)](https://github.com/claudiospizzi)
