EAGLE perpetual licensing is now dead

Not sure how many here use EAGLE for their PCB design software but Autodesk just announced that they will no longer be licensing new installs of Eagle perpetual. They are forcing everyone onto their cloud-based Fusion360 Electronics workspace. So if you are a infrequent user of EAGLE and haven’t used it in awhile you might be in store for some surprises when/if you try to install or use it.

Relevant quote from Autodesk email:
"You’ve been identified as a contact for a perpetual license of EAGLE for electronics design. The perpetual EAGLE license you currently own is yours and that will not change. Autodesk however will no longer create or supply any additional copies of license files that allow EAGLE to be moved to another computer. "
