  • Added new MSI Steampunked, MSI Lightning Anniversary and MSI Mystic skins by Drerex design
  • Improved hardware monitoring module:
    • Added CPU temperature monitoring support for AMD Ryzen 3X00 processors family
    • Added thermal offset for CPU temperature monitoring on AMD Ryzen Threadripper 29X0 processors family
    • Added package CPU power and per-core CPU power monitoring for AMD Ryzen processors family
    • Improved monitoring plugins architecture:
  • Added API function for reading host application’s hardware monitoring timestamp from the plugins. The timestamp is updated by host on each hardware polling iteration, so it allows the plugin to precache and reuse some sensor data if the same physical sensor value is being used in multiple data sources exported by plugin. Such approach is demonstrated in updated CPU.dll plugin for duplicating the same temperature sensor value for all cores on AMD CPU
  • Added optional plugin unititialization callback function, which is called by the host before unloading the plugins. New multithreaded Ping.dll plugin is demonstrating new function usage to shut down ping monitoring thread properly
  • Improved monitoring plugins:
    • Updated CPU.dll plugin is demonstating AMD Ryzen CPU temperature monitoring implementation and optimal duplication of the same temperature sensor readback for all CPU cores
