EditPad Lite
A powerful Notepad replacement

EditPad Lite is an excellent general-purpose text editor that's fast, easy to use, and packed with useful features.

The program can open as many files as you need, for instance, and you can switch between them with a tabbed interface. The tabs work much like a browser, so you're able to rearrange them by dragging and dropping, close all but the current tab with a right-click option, or save a file by dragging and dropping its tab onto a folder.

EditPad Lite offers a wide range of interesting text manipulation options. You're able to indent and outdent text, insert the contents of a file at a given point in your document, convert a selected block of text to upper or lower case, and more. A powerful search and replace panel includes a history, so you can recall previous searches in a couple of clicks. And the unlimited undo and redo will rescue your work if you make a mistake.

The program can handle documents with Unix, Mac and DOS line endings, and supports Unicode text files, all Windows and ISO-8859 code pages, as well as many DOS, KOI8 and EBCDIC code pages. So no more editing complications, just because you're working with a file that came from (or is destined for) some other platform.

Productivity features include the option to keep the EditPad window on top of your other windows. And the program can leave an icon in the system tray, so it's very easy to access. But if you don't like that, then it's easily changed, as is just about every other aspect of the program - it's all extremely configurable.

Version 7.3.8:

- File Types|Colors and Syntax: Button for the background color is now hidden when "Editor: Folding icons" is selected in the list, as this item does not have a background color.
- File Types|Colors and Syntax: The default color for bookmarks and folding icons is now the margin color rather than the plain text color.
- Preferences|Cursors: Custom mouse pointers now scale on high DPI systems just like the standard mouse pointers.
- Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.2a.

Verdict:

Don't let the "Lite" designation fool you. There is a commercial version available with extra features (and if you like this then check the author's site for the details), but we think there's more than enough text editing functionality here for most people

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
