Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional
Develop Windows 7-compliant applications

Microsoft's powerful development environment has finally been updated for 2010, and just as you'd expect, it's packed with new productivity-boosting features.

This starts with a new editor based on the Windows Presentation Foundation, which makes it easy to zoom in on your code and highlight method references. You can now search everything in your solution from one place (no more "Quick Find" for this, "Find in File" for that). And if you use multiple monitors, then you're now able to float windows from one monitor to another.

A wide range of language enhancements range from the simple (Visual Basic's implicit line continuations that split statements across multiple lines) to the profound: new parallel computing libraries let you take full advantage of multiple processors without needing to work with threads or the thread pool. Or if you want to expand your horizons, then you can always try F#, a brand new .NET language suited for even the most technical tasks.

Then there are new code snippets for HTML, JScript and ASP.NET for faster authoring; easier web deployment that sees the ability to package and publish your web applications in one click; Windows 7 features that mean your apps can take advantage of multi-touch, jump lists and Aero thumbnails in the taskbar, and a whole lot more.

Note that the download here is for the ISO image and is over 2GB in size.

Verdict:

An important release, packed with essential new features

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
