V0.32 29/11/2016 JosL: reduce severity from error to warning when member of group cannot be found

V0.33 30/11/2016 JosL: new O365 caching method, direct lookups were too slow

V0.37 06/12/2016 JosL: added debug mode, don’t count version mismatch as double error
V0.38 08/12/2016 JosL: re-cache O365 Objects after creating groups, so nested groups get nested right away instead of at next run
V0.39 13/12/2016 JosL: returnChangedMembersInADGroups function optimized
V0.40 13/12/2016 JosL: implemented .NET streamwriter vs add-content to avoid file locking issues of the logfile

V0.42 13/12/2016 JosL: changed full/differential switches, full = run a full, differential = run a differential, no longer exclude one another
V0.43 13/12/2016 JosL: allow X500 addresses to sync at initial creation

V0.44 20/12/2016 JosL: removed log spam about skipping inactive accounts
V0.45 29/12/2016 JosL: when creating O365 groups, set managedBy after creating all groups (in case a group is an owner this prevents the group not being found yet)
V0.46 03/01/2017 JosL: adjusted mail parameters to optionally only email when there are issues, or changes, or always
V0.47 17/01/2017 JosL: send error mail if log file is locked and causes a crash. Process renames before anything else in a differential sync
V0.48 17/01/2017 JosL: reconnect to Exchange Online each time we’re caching objects, fixed a bug in detecting Deleted Groups on both sides
V0.49 17/01/2017 JosL: moved all non-creation processing steps for AD groups to post-processing function, overwrite primary smtp instead of updating when going from AD->O365
V0.50 17/01/2017 JosL: set mailNickName and LegacyExchangeDN properties when creating group in AD so exchange picks it up in the list
V0.51 31/01/2017 JosL: actually send email notification if logfile is locked, prevent running twice (autokill other same script PS processes)
V0.52 07/02/2017 JosL: use Set-ADGroup vs Add-ADGroupMember and Remove-AdGroupMember as the latter don’t support contacts in certain situations (undocumented issue: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28542825/powershell-add-adgroupmember-objectclasscontact-to-a-distribution-group-error)
V0.53 13/03/2017 JosL: multi-delete protection, prevents deletion of all groups and forces manual action by admin
V0.54 03/04/2017 JosL: retry if membership retrieval of an Office 365 group fails and remove previous sessions when reconnecting to O365 ExO
V0.55 11/04/2017 JosL: clear hint about how to use multiple recipients for mail notification, custom ExO session health / reconnect function
V0.56 15/05/2017 JosL: group selector expanded to optionally select based on the extensionattribute in AD/O365 as an alternative to the display name prefix. Update all your groups before using this if you’re switching to this mode
