Islandora Altmetrics is now Islandora Badges

Thanks to the efforts of newly minted Islandora 7.x Committer Brandon Weigel, from the British Colombia Electronic Library Network, the Islandora Altmetrics module has received a major overhaul, moving beyond support for Altmetrics to become a more generalized tool for adding various metrics. With this change in function comes a name change: Islandora Badges.
