This morning I got the following alert from VMWARE Fusion:

Long time users of VMWARE Fusion will know that normally this box only appears when promting about an upgrade to a new major release and minor versions are upgraded in situ. Pressing the Learn More button took me to the VMWARE website and goes into upgrade prices. At the bottom of the box it mentions a free upgrade (see in yellow).

Simply press the URL to download a fresh installer. While you could argue this is a bit of a non story I nearly got caught out and wanted to share my near miss to save others.
