Nuance PDF Reader 8.1
A faster, more feature-packed PDF viewer

PDF is the most popular format for exchanging documents online, and so every PC needs the ability to view PDF files. This doesn't mean you have to install Adobe Reader, though: there are many alternatives that are faster, lighter on resources, and have more features. And Nuance PDF Reader is a perfect example.

The program's advantages start immediately. Our PDF Reader 11 folder requires 117MB of hard drive space, with plenty of support files to add; Nuance PDF Reader is a relatively slimline 62MB. Its reduced size seemed to improve performance, with documents loading noticeably more quickly on our test PC.

There are plenty of navigation panels to help you browse your document's pages, attachments, comments, links and signatures. 3D objects even get their own Model Tree panel where you can set zoom, camera angle, render tree and more.

This isn't just about viewing plain text and images, either. Nuance PDF Reader can open XPS files, play embedded Flash and Silverlight content, view and navigate layered PDF files, and more.

You can also annotate PDF files by highlighting, crossing out or underlining selected text. The program will let you both fill out and save PDF forms. Corporate types will appreciate the Microsoft SharePoint integration, that makes it easy to access and open files stored in your Repository. And there's even the option to convert PDF files to Word, Excel, Or RTF format, although this isn't directly built in to the program. Instead you must upload your file to Nuance, who will email you the results.

Verdict:

Nuance PDF Reader is fast, lightweight, and full of useful extras. The excellent form handling is especially useful - if you regularly work with PDF forms then give this a try

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
