I have been learning Fusion 360. It is free if you certify you are a hobbyist or a small business making under $100,000 a year. The free version is exactly the same as the 'commercial' version. It is a little tricky to find the right place to register as a hobbyist on the web site but it is there. You have to register every year. My license was set to expire at the end of the month so I just updated it for another year and the warning in the program went away.
Shaper requires .svg files which Fusion does not directly support. However, there is a Shaper plugin for Fusion to export a file created in Fusion in .svg format that Shaper can then use.
As Ed said, the Shaper software is actively being developed. There have been two updates in the last 3 or 4 months. The last one this week. Likewise Fusion has had 2 or 3 updates in the last year. The last one at the end of November.
EDIT: I ran Fusion just now and another update is available.
