Release Notes - SPCAF

Major release with great new features, new PowerShell rules and many improvements.

Warning: Breaking change for custom rules: Due to major changes in the analysis engine custom developed rules must be recompiled with the latest SPCAF.Sdk. See "Upgrade of custom rules developed before v6.5". Also more files can be discovered and will be analyzed with the improved engine. Therefore you can find more errors and warnings in your code with this version.
