Save web pages as PDF

Wkhtmltopdf is a very flexible open source HTML to PDF converter. It's a command line tool, but don't let that put you off - it's still very easy to use.

Saving a remote web page to PDF, for instance, is as simple as entering:

wkhtmltopdf http://www.google.com google.pdf

The results looked good and had working links, most of the time (they can link to local files or remote URLs, and occasionally the program got it wrong).

You can probably already guess how to convert a local file:

wkhtmltopdf c:\folder\MyFile.html MyFile.pdf

Point the program at multiple HTML documents and it'll combine them into a book with a cover and a table of contents:

wkhtmltopdf cover cover.html toc chapter1.html chapter2.html chapter3.html book.pdf

If you need more flexibility then there are plenty of more advanced switches available. You're able to set the PDF's page size, orientation, dpi, margins, headers, footers, and much, much more.

And although PDF will be the output format of choice for most people, wkhtmltopdf can also save Postscript files. Just specify .ps as the extension of your export file:

wkhtmltopdf http://www.microsoft.com microsoft.ps

Verdict:

Wkhtmltopdf is a powerful tool which generally does a good job of rendering HTML files into PDF. It's relatively easy to use (by command line standards), but also has plenty of advanced options if you need them.

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
