Bitdefender Total Security 2015
A one-stop do-everything security suite

Bitdefender Total Security 2015 is the company's full-strength, no-compromise security suite, a powerful mix of antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, anti-theft system, file encryption and 2GB of secure online backup space. It's a long list of features, but don't be put off: the new release is all about convenience, and making them as easy to use as possible.

A revamped interface means common tasks (Quick Scan, Update, Safepay, Optimize) are now available with a single click, while other functions are accessible via three main tiles (Protection, Privacy, Tools). Even first-time users will quickly find what they need.

Bitdefender Safepay, the suite's secure browser, is now integrated with Wallet for safer online transactions. Better still, it can now automatically fill in user names, passwords and credit card details, too, often allowing you to pay online in a single step.

Bitdefender's Vulnerability Scanner not only finds missing patches on your PC, it now provides links to help you download and install them.

A new Activity Profiles feature sees the suite automatically optimise your system for different situations. Play a game and BitDefender enables the Game Profile, disabling unnecessary services and working to speed up your PC. The Movie Profile kicks in when you're watching a movie, optimising the suite's settings and enhancing visual effects. And if your battery is running low, the Battery Mode Profile optimises Total Security and Windows settings to save energy.

If you're still worried about performance, the Tuneup section (Tools > Tuneup) provides six new modules to help: Boot Optimizer, PC Clean-Up, Disk Defragmenter, Registry Cleaner, Registry Recovery and Duplicate Finder. Or, if exploring all those sounds too complicated, the new One-Click Optimizer will clean up your PC all on its own.

There are smaller improvements dotted around the suite: better reports, enhanced parental controls, and a more capable desktop widget, while the spam filter is now entirely cloud-based, improving accuracy and making it more responsive to the latest threats.

Bitdefender's real strength comes in the protection it provides, though. The independent labs typically give it very high marks, and as we write, AV-Comparatives' May 2014 Real-World Protection Test found Bitdefender's package blocked 100% of threats. Only Panda, out of 21 other entrants, could match them.

What's new in build 18.20?

- New design for Safepay Settings;
- Integrated SandBox 1.28;
- AVCHV driver listed with (!) in Device Manager on some systems - fixed;
- Other fixes and improvements;

Verdict:

Bitdefender Total Security 2015 is an excellent security suite which now does an even better job of adapting to your needs. The new Profiles system, enhanced vulnerability scanner and form filler for online transactions should all save you time, and the revamped interface means the package is easier than ever to use.

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
