New release: SharePointDsc v2.3 has been published!

Hello all,
Version 2.3 of SharePointDsc has been created this morning. Over the last weeks we've implemented many bugfixes and improvements to the module. This release will be part of the DSC Resource Kit which will be released later today (June 13th 2018).

This release contains a documentation update. We added categories to the resources, which divides all resources into four categories: Common, Specific, Distributed and Utility. More information about these categories can be found in our Wiki.


We are working on adding SharePoint 2019 support in the background and are planning to have that available shortly after the release of the Public Beta. Since all details about SharePoint 2019 are still under NDA, unfortunately this is all we can share at the moment.
