Mozilla Thunderbird 52
Major update to the popular email client, but with a limited number of new features

Thunderbird is an email client from Mozilla, the organisation better known for the Firefox web browser which has a great deal to offer. In addition to handling multiple email accounts, the program can also be used to subscribe to RSS feeds and access online newsgroups and a new tabbed interface makes it easy to jump between individual emails or different aspects of the program.

There are new tools available to make it easier to manage a burgeoning inbox Email archival makes it possible to remove messages from your main inbox while retaining them for future reference, and the advanced search facility takes the hard works out of tracking down messages using a keyword filtering and timeline system.

As is the case with Firefox, Thunderbird supports addons can be used to customise and extend the features of the program. Getting started with the email client has been greatly simplified thanks to automatic account setting detection and nice touches such as the appearance of a warning if an email is written which includes the word 'attached' but no attachment is added make Thunderbird a joy to use.

With advanced security, phishing protection and automatic updating, coupled with countless other features which are simply not found in other email clients, Thunderbird is the ideal program to handle your email correspondence and much more.

What's new in 52 (see release notes for more):

- NEW. Folder pane toolbar and folder view selector (replacement for folder view arrows)|
- NEW. Optionally remove corresponding data files when removing an account from Thunderbird
- NEW. Import settings from Becky! Internet Mail
- NEW. Possibility to copy message filter
- NEW. Dictionary setting is restored when editing a draft. Content-Language header (RFC 3282) transmitted with message
- NEW. Calendar: Event can now be created and edited in a tab
- NEW. Calendar: Processing of received invitation counter proposals
- NEW. Chat: Support Twitter Direct Messages
- NEW. Chat: Liking and favoriting in Twitter
- NEW. Chat: XMPP: Support SASL SCRAM authentication mechanism
- NEW. Chat: Support Jabber/XMPP Message Carbons (XEP-280)

Verdict:

Evolution rather than revolution is the buzzword for Thunderbird, but all the improvements are welcome, nonetheless.

The main problem with Mozilla products is DO NOT try to get in touch with them if you have a problem like exporting your address book. There is no way to send a question vie eamil, because you cant as I have been trying for two weeks to find a way to get the problem to them as I do not use twitter or facebook other then that it is a simple email program to use.

attachment reminder

I'm glad you like the attachment reminder. It was added at my suggestion. It was a feature of the venerable Pegasus which was my email client of choice back in the dinosaur days of DOS.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
