I went to https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads, and what I see as "Player" is now called "VMware Workstation 12.1.0 Player for Linux 64-bit." The version I have currently installed is Player, version 6.

Apparently, VMware Workstation 12.1.0 Player is both free and paid. I suppose I have to upgrade to it. Anybody done that, what should I have in mind?

However, the package is named similarly:

VMware-Player-6.0.6-.....x86_64.bundle
VMware-Player-12.1.0-......x86_64.bundle

No "workstation" in the name there, just a jump in the version number.
