VMWare Fusion 11.5 : free update in September with the support of Catalina

Contrary to usual (and Parallels), VMWare will not release a new paid version of its virtualization software at the start of the year. This is VMWare Fusion 11.5 successor to version 11 and it will be a free update for current users.

This version will support macOS Catalina, including its mode Sidecar. The dark theme of macOS will eventually be managed and an option will synchronize the change of theme of the system of Apple with Windows.

VMWare Fusion 11.5 will also support other new systems (Windows 10 19H2, Ubuntu 1910, Debian, 10.0, RHEL 7.7), knows how to manage containers, Kubernetes , and will benefit from performance improvements.

The period during which the users of Fusion 8 and later can upgrade to the new version at a preferential rate is extended. VMware Fusion 11 costs 88,96 € full license and 54,95 € upgrade.
