Is Home & Student worth a buy?


I´m using Corel 9 for ages now and need to switch to a newer version as Corel 9 has some bugs with Windows 10. I´m using Corel, mostly PhotoPaint, on a non-commercial basis, just for personal stuff. I found the 2019 Home & Student version today and wonder if this is the correct buy for me. The price seems ok. I was reading about a bug with displaying masks and that there are no updates on that for the Home & Student version. Is that true? Is there way to test the software for 30 days first? Will there be a 2020 version Home & Student?
