USSU Unlimited 2.0.5.6
Easily manage and update standard Windows programs

USSU Unlimited is an open source tool which can help you to install standard programs on a PC, then detect and download updates as they appear.

The program can manage 45 common applications. There are standard runtimes (Flash, Java, Adobe AIR), browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari), assorted security tools (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast, Avira, AVG), and plenty of desktop essentials (Adobe Reader, VLC Media Player, Google Earth, Paint.NET and more).

When you first launch USSU Unlimited, it displays the status of all these applications across various tabs. You'll be able to see whether a program is installed and up-to-date, installed but missing a patch, or not yet installed at all. If you'd like to enable management for a particular application then it's just a matter of clicking the "On" button, while clicking "Start" will download and install whatever you've selected.

The program doesn't always quite work as it should. We had installed Flash and 7-Zip on our test PC, for instance, but USSU Unlimited didn't spot that and claimed they were "not installed". This isn't a fatal problem - if an application isn't detected properly then you can just continue to manage it manually - but it's still a small concern.

For the most part, though, USSU Unlimited works very well, and if you need to manage several PCs then it could save you a lot of time.

Verdict:

It has one or two technical issues, but USSU Unlimited is still an above-average application updater, quickly checking for, downloading and installing a host of popular applications

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
