Core FTP LE 2.2.1885
A fast and free FTP client

Core FTP LE is an easy-to-use FTP client, that, despite the "Lite Edition" tag, is packed with powerful features.

The program has an intuitive interface that means you'll feel immediately at home. There's an Explorer-type window for browsing your local system, another to navigate the remote server, a Site Manager to store your logon details and a status window to keep you in touch with what's going on - it's all very straightforward.

Explore the menus, though, and you'll find there's plenty of power here, with SFTP/SSH, SSL/TLS, and HTTP/HTTPS support, FTP/HTTP/SOCKS proxy, bandwidth control, and retry, resume and auto-reconnect options, amongst many other useful features. And although the company would like you to buy the program's big brother, Core FTP Pro, the Lite version doesn't nag you, display ads, or employ any other annoying tactics to try and change your minds.

So where's the catch? There's no scheduler, encryption or integrated ZIP support. The program won't display thumbnails of your remote directories, and there's no email notification of a successful transfer. If these are a must then you'll have to opt for Core FTP Pro (licences start at $34.95), but otherwise Core FTP LE 2.1 should provide all the file transfer protocol you need.

Recent changes include (see changelog for more):

SFTP overflow vulnerability fixed 
OpenSSL updated to 1.0.2j 
FIPS mode updates 
Scheduler transfer "duplicate" option added 
Manage SSH keys issue w/file based storage fixed 

Verdict:

A flexible and well-designed FTP client, well worth a try

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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."
