Windows Essentials
Enhance your online life with this varied suite of free tools

Windows Essentials is the next generation of Microsoft's free suite, which now makes it easier than ever to work with your favourite services.

Windows Messenger now has a Facebook-style interface, for example, and links directly with Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace.

Windows Movie Maker helps you put together a professional video, then uploads it to YouTube in a couple of clicks.

Windows Photo Gallery can now share your photos instantly on Flickr, Facebook, SmugMug and more.

Windows Mail works happily with your Gmail, Yahoo!, Hotmail and other email accounts.

And Windows Writer can update your blog whether it's on Blogger, Wordpress.com, TypePad or many other services.

That's not all, though. Windows Family Safety is now better than ever at keeping your kids away from the worst of the web. Windows OneDrive syncs files and folders across all your PCs, ensuring they're all up-to-date. And if you're running Windows 7 then you'll find every tool is particularly easy to use - just pin the apps you need to the taskbar, and their jump lists will give you speedy access to common tasks.

Note that Windows Essentials is for XP, Vista and 7 users only.

Verdict:

Windows Essentials includes some excellent tools and is better than ever at helping you work with other sites and services. Grab a copy immediately

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
