### Added

 - Added continuous delivery with a new CI pipeline.

### Fixed

- xSystemSecurity
 - Fixed the correct URL on status badges.
- xFileSystemAccessRule
 - Corrected flag handling so that the `Test-TargetResource` passes
   correctly.
 - Using `Ensure = 'Absent'` with no rights specified will now correctly
   remove existing ACLs for the specified identity, rather than silently
   leaving them there.
 - Correctly returns property `Ensure` from the function `Get-TargetResource`.
