Norton Internet Security for Mac 5
Keep your Mac protected from online threats with Norton Internet Security for Mac

Keeping safe online is about much more that simply ensuring that you manage to avoid virus infections. This is something that Symantec are only too aware of and it is a fact reflected in the beta version of Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac which bring the security package bang up to date complete with OS X Lion support.

Aside from the fact that Norton Internet Security is now Lion compatible - and it is only compatible with Lion - there is not much else new to look forward to here. There is a new interface that brings the app more in line with the look of the Windows version of the software, but the only new feature is Safe Web which provides warnings about potentially unsafe web sites - and automatically blocks them so they cannot cause any damage.

While there is little new to talk about in the security suite, Norton Internet Security still has a lot to offer. There is an effective and easily configured firewall that can be used to control the flow of traffic to and from your computer - this is pleasingly simple to set up.

The threat of identity theft s one that everyone should be concerned about, but to help allay some fears. Norton Internet Security includes phishing protection that blocks known phishing sites while web searches have been made safer due to the SafeWeb component of the Norton toolbar. This provides a warning should a dangerous sites be listed in search results

It should be noted that this is beta software; as such it is not fully finished and issues may arise. You should take care when using any beta software, ensuring that you backup all of your important data.

The beta build will give you a 14 days license. Simply click "renew" to extend this license after 14 days. The beta will expire October 31st 2011.

Verdict:

New features and improvements may be a little thin on the ground, but the Lion-friendly version of Norton Internet Security is worth a look, at least while the beta is free.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
