AxCrypt 1.7
An easy-to-use encryption tool

Installing a firewall, antivirus tool and spyware detector will keep many external dangers locked out of your PC, but they don't make you entirely secure. Anyone who has access to your system can still browse all your most confidential files, unless you encrypt them with a tool like AxCrypt.

The program is surprisingly straightforward in operation. It doesn't require any configuration, at all. If you want to encrypt a file, just right-click it, choose the new AxCrypt menu and select one of the Encrypt options, enter your passphrase, and that's it. The file will be protected with AES 128-bit encryption, and no-one else is going to view it unless they know the passphrase.

AxCrypt makes it unusually convenient to work with encrypted files. If you want to view an encrypted document, just double-click it as normal, enter your passphrase and it'll be displayed in the associated application. Change the document and it'll automatically be re-encrypted, too, so your data will stay protected with the absolute minimum of hassle.

The program also includes an option to convert your document into a self-extracting file; email it to a friend, and they can use your passphrase to view the contents. A "Shred and Delete" option will securely wipe a confidential file, making it virtually impossible to recover the contents. And support for files larger than 4GB means you can be sure that AxCrypt will be able to protect all your files.

Verdict:

Quick, simple, effective and free, this is the perfect choice to encrypt your private files

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
