Updated SPFx Content Slider Code for GA

I recently wrote about converting your Content Editor Web Part and Script Editor Web Part customizations to SharePoint Framework Client Web Parts: Converting your CEWP Customizations to the SharePoint Framework Since then, the SharePoint Framework has gone GA (General Availability) and there were quite a few changes made.
