Microsoft Script Explorer for Windows PowerShell 1.1.2.15
Quickly find useful PowerShell scripts and resources

Microsoft Script Explorer is a handy tool for locating PowerShell scripts, snippets and similar resources.

You can use the program as a simple keyword-based search engine. Type "Outlook", say, and it'll check Bing Search, the TechNet Script Centre, PoshCode.org and your local file system, before returning any hits. And clicking anything useful displays the relevant document in a preview pane (there's no need to open a separate browser window, although there's the option to do that if you prefer).

If you need to refine the search then you can choose to, say, only search TechNet or PoshCode, or focus solely on SQL Server scripts, just in a click or two.

Still can't find what you need? Click Browse Categories and the program lists categories like Desktop Management, Group Policy, Hardware, Multimedia, Networking and more. Expanding Networking, say, reveals 10 more subcategories. And choosing any of these will display multiple matching articles with a quick summary: as before, just clicking one will then download and display the content for you.

If even that's not enough, click Explore Community Resources and you'll be able to browse TechNet Wiki's PowerShell Survival Guide, an excellent set of documents with valuable information for everyone from beginners to PowerShell experts (although this does display each page in a browser window, unfortunately, which makes it a little less useful).

Verdict:

Whether you're a PowerShell newbie or an old hand, Microsoft Script Explorer is a handy tool which could help you uncover new scripts and resources

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
