This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: SharePointDsc articles.

Yesterday version 2.5 of SharePointDsc has been released to the PowerShell Gallery. Over the last weeks we've implemented many bugfixes and improvements to the module. One new resource has been added, SPSiteUrl, which is able to configure the site url for host named site collections. This release is part of the DSC Resource Kit which was released on September 5th 2018.
If you are interested in using SharePointDsc with SharePoint 2019, please use the code in the v3.0-development branch.
