ASCOOS Web Server
An Apache/ MySQL/ PHP bundle for web developers

ASCOOS Web Server is a suite of tools and applications aimed at web developers.

Unzipping the ASCOOS download file gets you the following.

NGINX Web Server; Apache Web Server; OpenSSL; Filezilla FTP Server; three PHP Versions; Perl; three MySQL Database versions; PostgreSQL Database; MongoDB Database; Multiple SQLite Versions; phpMyAdmin; phpPgAdmin; rockMongo; phpMemcachedAdmin, eXtplorer and more.

There's no further installation required. As long as the AlexServ folder is in your root directory, then you can run \AlexServe\aws\aws.exe, start MySQL, Apache and whatever else you need, and begin managing your files.

This isn't particularly unusual, but ASCOOS Web Server stands out because it bundles and allows you to test your sites with different version of PHP and MySQL. Just choose your preferred active version (or switch to another) with a click.

Verdict:

The ASCOOS Control Panel is a little clunky, and the basic, YouTube-only documentation isn't ideal, either. It only takes a few moments to master, though, and ASCOOS Web Server's support for multiple PHP and MySQL versions is a real plus.

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
