PowerArchiver 2015
An amazingly comprehensive tool which provides everything you'll need to work with compressed files

PowerArchiver is an archiving tool which crams an array of powerful features into an appealing, easy-to-use interface.

You've no worries about file formats here, for instance, as the program supports just about everything. You get read/ write support for ZIP, ZIPX, 7-ZIP, CAB, LHA (LZH), TAR, GZIP, BZIP2, ISO (ISO9660 and UDF – PRO only), BH, XXE, UUE, yENC, and MIME (Base 64), and read/ extract support for RAR, ARJ, ARC, ACE, MSI, NSIS, CHM, DMG, RPM, CPIO, VHD, XAR, LZMA, SquashFS, CramFS, ZOO, WIM plus ISO (ISO9660 and UDF) disc image formats.

PowerArchiver offers exceptional security, too. As well as fully supporting the standard ZIP AES encryption standard (128/ 192/ 256-bit), its own PAE standard supports encryption with five different methods: Blowfish (128-bit), DES (64-bit), Triple DES (128-bit), AES 128-bit, and AES 256-bit. The program even has FIPS 140.2 Certification for extra reassurance.

If you're more concerned about the program's practical benefits, there are plenty. It's extremely fast, for instance. VSS and UAC elevation support mean it can cope with problems where other tools fail, compressing files even if they're in use and need administrator access to read. and there are tools to repair archives, convert them between formats, create self-extracting archives and a whole lot more.

PowerArchiver 2015 is here and is a major update. See the "what's new" page for more info.

Verdict:

A polished and professional archiving tool which has a huge array of essential features, yet remains very straightforward to use.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
