VMware (tweet, also: MacRumors):
Fusion 12 Player replaces Fusion 11.5 ‘standard’, and follows the same price and license model as Workstation Player, which means that it is both free for personal use, men requires the license for commercial use. Fusion Player has the same features as Fusion 11.5.x ‘standard’ and more.
For business use, however, the price increases from $ 79 to $ 149.

So last year we selected 100 popular business programs, dug through blog posts and the invaluable Wayback Machine, checked each year̵7;s prices for the decade from 2009 to 2019, and calculated software inflation. […]
If pricing went up, however, it went up by an average of 47% since the last price change (which came on average 4 years ago). Asana, teamwork projects and PivotalTracker each rose by around 10% – so Asana now costs a dollar more per user each month. Others saw a price increase of 30-50%. PieSync went up the most, with the price almost tripling since the acquisition of HubSpot.
You had almost as good odds that your software would be cheaper this year, as 8% of the products saw that the price was reduced by an average of 32%. Notion made their personal plans for free, as GitHub did along with reducing all plans’ prices. AWS took 1-12% of its services. GoToMeeting costs less than half of what it did last year. Drip and LucidChart had increased prices in 2019, and brought them down this year.
