SafeIP 2.0.0.2602
Change your IP address and browse anonymously with a couple of clicks

SafeIP provides several easy ways to help you browse more anonymously online.

Normally, for instance, the websites you visit will at the very least have access to your IP address, so they'll know where in the world you are. SafeIP, though, can allocate you another IP address in the US, UK, Poland or Germany. All you have to do is double-click on your country of choice, and your address will be allocated and displayed immediately.

Apart from enhancing your privacy, this may also allow you access to some sites you wouldn't normally be able to reach. If you've ever tried to view content and got a "not available in your country" message, for instance, that's probably down to your IP address, and getting another may help.

Click the "Settings" button and you'll find SafeIP has many more options. It can also remove your browser's user agent header, for instance. And there are options to block cookies, or website referrers.

The program can even try to block ads and prevent you from accessing malicious websites, although this doesn't exactly appear to be as sophisticated as you might hope. When we checked the relevant boxes, SafeIP simply displayed an error message complaining that "there was a problem adding updates to your HOSTS file".

There's clearly some work to do on these more advanced functions, then, but don't let that necessarily put you off. SafeIP's core function of changing your IP address appears to work very well, and that's more than enough to justify its installation.

Verdict:

SafeIP provides a quick and easy way to change your IP address. Its other functions may not be so reliable, though - use them with care (if you do so at all)

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
