EditBone
A powerful programmer's editor

EditBone is a Notepad replacement which is oriented heavily towards programmers.

Click File > Open, for instance, and you're not just presented with basic file types, like TXT. Instead, there's direct support for all kinds of code: AWK scripts, C/ C#/ C++ files, COBOL, Fortran, HTML, JAVA, BAT/ CMD, Perl, PHP, XML and more, with syntax highlighting for over 50 languages and scripts in total.

The core editing functions aren't quite as advanced as some of the leading Notepad replacements. There's no "multiple clipboard" support, for instance, no "code snippets" window. But there's still more than enough to boost your productivity: sorting, full indentation control, white space removal, bookmarks, powerful search tools with regular expression support, and more.

We found some unexpected extras, too. The Print option can display your code with line numbers added (or not), for instance. There's a useful file compare tool, and a Unicode character map. Overall EditBone feels much more like a coherent development environment than the usual Notepad replacement, and so if you've been unimpressed by other editors than the program may be worth a look.

What's new in 12.17.4 (see changelog for more info)?

- Fixed check for updates
- Fixed editing of selected char

Verdict:

A capable text editor, especially useful for software developers

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."
