Hello InSpec friends!

  • Added support for Alibaba Cloud Linux 3 to the Chef InSpec service resource. (#5578)
  • Replaced the WMI command-line (WMIC) utility in the Chef InSpec security_identifier resource with Common Information Model (CIM) cmdlets as the WMIC utility will be deprecated soon. (#5636)
