Minor update with useful changes

Here is our new release #5075.

Changes list:
⚡ We've added boolean sensors (1/0 or Yes/No, On/Off). For example, CPU core sensors "Critical Temperature" and "Thermal Throttling" and others.
⚡ Better compatibility with DX10/11/12 games on some systems.
⚡ Desktop widget now has an Update Rate option like overlays. Previous versions updated it 10 times per second by default.
⚡ Fixed bug selecting software interface font in the program options. Our Asian comrades have noted this and we have fixed this ;) Translations will be updated too in next release.

  • Hardware alerts - software will warn you in the overlay when your hardware is running in a dangerous state or close to critical.
