Description

Fontawesome 5 has been released, but it changes the "fa" class prefix to the following multiple prefixes.

Solid: fas
Regular: far
Brands: fab

All usages would need to be updated mainly where -o icons were being used.

Use a second CSS class to migrate fontawesome 4 usages to fontawesome 5. Add parameter to disable it as well just like jQuery migration. Once all of core usages have been migrated this can be changed to default disabled and eventually removed.

https://fontawesome.com/how-to-use/upgrading-from-4

Example migration for alternative styling to new naming convention:

.cb_template .fa[class*="-o"] should be attached to .cb_template .far, which ensures the correct font will be used for those styles. Others will just need flat out to duplicate some code, but can all be generated using SCSS.

A CSS shim is now provided.

This should make upgrading much easier as we will need to use the shim until all usages can be upgraded. The shim should completely resolve migration issues so shouldn't be any B/C concerns. Needs testing.
