Official support for 5.1

The Computer Extension plugin for Unreal Engine allows you to perform actions such as restarting and shutting down your computer, as well as logging off. This can be useful in situations where you need to restart your computer for a firmware update or other specific purpose. The plugin also provides information about the computer, which may be useful for certain purposes.

There are a few important notes to consider when using this plugin. First, there may be a delay before the actions initiated by the plugin are executed. We are working on addressing this issue. Additionally, using the "Fetch System Info" feature may cause your application to lose focus on the computer's input. We are also working to fix this issue.

Overall, the Computer Extension plugin offers a range of useful features for interacting with your computer and gathering information about it through Unreal Engine. It is currently supported on Unreal Engine version 5.1.
