MacFamilyTree 7.0
Organise your photos with the help of MacFamilyTree 7.0

Genealogy enjoyed something of a revival over the past decade, and the level of interest in family tree research shows no signs of abating. MacFamilyTree is an piece of advanced genealogy software for OS X which makes it easy to create a detailed family tree and work with the data in a variety of ways.

People you add to the tree are more than just simple entries, a wealth of additional information can be stored about individuals making the finished family tree a much more rewarding experience. Even the largest of family trees can be searches quickly so you can home in on any information you are looking for.

To share your completed family tree with others, MacFamilyTree makes it possible to create web sites. The creation process is aided by a deep and rich interface, and options such as the ability to map your family on a 3D globe and generate striking 3D charts really make this software stand out from the crowd.

Data can be exported in a variety of ways, and there is even an iPhone app available to view your family tree on your phone. With support for GEDCOM, you can also work with trees that have been created in other programs, and share your tree with others for collaborative work.

Version 7.0 has revamped MacFamilyTree’s user interface and Edit Mode to make navigation much quicker. There’s improved source management options, more reliable merging of individuals and iCloud integration for keeping files backed up and in sync with MobileFamilyTree on the iPad and iPhone. You can also search and share your research with the free FamilySearch.org website directly from the app. In addition you’ll find new charts - including a more robust Virtual Tree view for navigation purposes – and reports, better media management tools, built-in backup manager and support (finally!) for high-resolution maps when viewing the places where your ancestors have been.
 

Verdict:

With the improvements in version 7, MacFamilyTree makes a strong play for the title of best family history application on the Mac. It almost succeeds, too.

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
