VMware Fusion 12 – TidBITS

VMware has released version 12 of its VMware Fusion virtualization package with support for macOS 11 Big Sur and a line-up change. VMware Fusion 12 adds support for DirectX 1

1 and OpenGL 4.1 3D-accelerated graphics, enables the deployment of Kubernetes clusters (an open source container platform that enables the operation of an elastic web server framework), introduces Sandbox Renderer running the virtual graphics engine in a separate thread with reduced privileges for extra security, and adds support for USB 3.1 virtual devices.

The new VMware Fusion 12 Player replaces the VMware Fusion Standard Edition and is now free for personal, non-commercial use – great for home and student users who want access to Windows apps and DirectX 11 games on their Mac (sign up for a license for personal use on the VMware website). For commercial use, the Fusion 12 Player costs $ 149 for a new license or $ 79 as an upgrade. VMware Fusion Pro supports individual use on up to three devices, which now includes Windows or Linux PCs running the Workstation, and is priced at $ 199 for a new license and $ 99 for an upgrade. Users who purchased VMware Fusion 11.5 or Fusion 11.5 Pro after June 15, 2020, will automatically receive new license keys for Fusion 12 Player or Fusion 12 Pro. (Free / $ 149.99 / $ 199.99 new, $ 79 / $ 99 upgrades, 612 MB, release notes, macOS 10.15+)
