Scribus Portable 1.4.4
Create newsletters, brochures, greetings cards, CD covers and more

Scribus is an open-source desktop publishing tool that's packed with all the layout features you need.

Excellent import features get you started by helping you utilise the content you already have. So, for instance, the program can import PDF documents, OpenOffice Draw, EPS, SVG, PSD and other files.

You can then work on your project, adding frames and tables, inserting images, using vector drawing tools or exploring the many font effects. Colour control includes CMYK and RGB support, spot colours, and ICC colour management.

And when you're finished, your document can be saved as a PDF, EPS or SVG file, as an image, and more.

Scribus takes a different approach to some of the other desktop publishing packages around, so you shouldn't expect to be productive with the program right away: it'll take time before you've learned the basics and feel at home. There is plenty of documentation available, though, so be sure to visit the support site if you need any help.

Note that this is the portable version of Scribus.

Version 1.4.4 changes:
  - PDF/X-1a export.
  - A script to align images in frames has been added.
  - The handling of transparencies in Photoshop-generated TIFF files has been improved.
  - Page borders can now act as guides (and thus be used for snapping of items).
  - The CMYK color palette created by the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) for newspaper advertisements has been integrated into Scribus.
  - A new color palette for professional geographers has been added.
  - Export to various bitmap formats has been re-enabled on Mac OS X.
  - Documentation and translation updates and improvements.

Verdict:

Complex, and with a few quirks, but full of interesting and powerful publishing features

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
