JPEG Saver 4.13.1
A very configurable slideshow screensaver

JPEG Saver is a screensaver which displays a slideshow of your own digital images. Windows has its own "My Pictures", "Photos" or "Photo Gallery" screensaver which can do something similar, of course, but JPEG Saver is far more powerful.

The program doesn't just support one source folder, for instance. You can add as many as you need. There's an option to include subfolders, as well. And you can have JPEG Saver select images based on their width, height, size, created/ modified date, and more.

Pictures will then be displayed in your preferred on-screen position, maybe with custom colour or gamma settings, resized as required, with a range of possible backgrounds (single colours, gradients, images, more), optionally in a different screen mode (you can choose both resolution and refresh rate).

And there's still more. Like 72 excellent transitions. The ability to include "extras" on the display, like a logo, clock, image information, or track data from popular media players. You can even run the program interactively, like a slideshow, so for example pressing the left or right arrow will display the previous or next image.

This can seem a little overwhelming, at least if you go exploring every feature. Even something as basic as defining the slideshow background gives you 13 possible options, each of which can have up to six further settings.

Fortunately, the default settings work just fine. All you have to do initially is point JPEG Saver at your source folders, and that's enough to immediately enjoy many of its benefits. Everything else can be added or tweaked as required, whenever you'd like to customise the screen saver a little further.

Version 4.13.1 brings:
    - A new "alphanumeric" image selection mode which displays files sorted by name, date and time (folders are ignored)
    - New "image average" and "image edge average" methods for setting background colour
    - Folders tab GUI redesigned to improve usability

Verdict:

A professional and very configurable screensaver with a stack of essential options.

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
