FSS Google Books Downloader 1.4.4.6
Easily download books from the Google Books service as PDF, JPG or PNG

Google Books is a great service for finding ebooks, but not so convenient when it comes to downloading local copies.

If you find this a problem, though, you can always install FSS Google Books Downloader, a simple tool which makes it easy to grab books and convert them to your folder of choice.

The process starts at the Google Books site. Browse it as normal, find a book you want to download, and copy the Preview link from your browser to the clipboard.

Now launch FSS Google Books Downloader, and click "Paste URL". The program will recognise the address, and download and display the book cover and summary.

If that looks okay, you're able to choose your output folder and preferred format (there's support for saving your book in a single PDF file, or multiple JPG or PNG images).

And then clicking "Download" will grab a local copy of the book for you.

The program isn't exactly sophisticated. In particular, there's no option to customise the downloaded pages (you can't choose the resolution or JPEG quality settings, for instance).

FSS Google Books Downloader is straightforward and easy to use, though, and if you're a regular on the Google Books site then you might find it very handy indeed.

Verdict:

A rather basic but easy-to-use tool for downloading your favourites from Google Books

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

    - 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
