Unicode Announces New Lower Individual and Student Membership Rates
Individual and student members are important contributors to the work of the Unicode Consortium. From the encoding of rare and minority scripts to collecting and vetting locale data, individuals help develop the next generation of Unicode standards and data. To promote participation, the Unicode Consortium has lowered the price for individual memberships to $75 per year and student memberships to $35 per year. The new rates are effective January 1, 2010 and existing memberships will be extended in accordance with the new lower prices.
The Unicode Consortium has also moved to online publication of the standard as of Version 5.2, and the entire text of the standard is freely available for online reading and printing. Copies of the book are no longer printed and are therefore no longer included as a membership benefit.
