Xtorrent
Download and manage torrents in OS X with Xtorrent

Reliable torrent clients for OS X are few and far between, but Xtorrent is a solid performer that makes it easy to download files using the BitTorrent protocol. There is no need to rely on visits to torrent sites to track down files as a search facility is built into Xtorrent. By default this will search a limited number of sites, but you can easily add others.

Working with multiple simultaneous download is make simple with a neatly implemented download queue. This makes it easy to pause and prioritise downloads, control the number of downloads that can run at any given time and override the rules you have put in place when the need arises.

A native 64-bit program, Xtorrent takes full advantage of Snow Leopard and operates quickly without being a drain on system resources. There is also iTunes integration so the files you download can be automatically exported ready for syncing with your portable device.

Built in support for RSS feeds means that it is possible to keep up to date with the latest content from your favourite sites and you can share links via Twitter in a couple of clicks. Features such as bandwidth scheduling, search suggestions and automatic port configuration make Xtorrent a joy to use.
 

Verdict:

Xtorrent is everything a torrent client should be and benefits from its light footprint and speedy operation.

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
