First update in 2019

Hello boys and girls!
We're ready to release new build with with very nice build number #5000.
As we announced at the end of 2018 year, this new version will have at least one great new feature - desktop widget (or desktop overlay).
Now you're able to see any part of a scene over your desktop (on top or under all windows). This widget works as portal or mirror to your scene. It will show everything that falls within its boundaries. Just hold CTRL button and move it over desktop with mouse (even to another display).

Here are the other changes in this release:
  • Added sensors for logical disks. These sensor will not slow down system performance or even crash it (possible with physical drives sensors on some systems)
  • Added font anti-aliasing switch in overlays. Very useful for Desktop overlay when it is in "transparent black color" mode.
  • Added Cyber Sync feature in experimental mode (FPS Limiter option)
  • Fixed GPU driver memory leak in some very specific cases (yes, we know how to eat all your GPU memory and no one will understand what the hell is going on :) )
  • Improvements in hardware access module (new devices are supported, fixes, etc)
