ITU-T Recommendations are freely available
By sandoz on Jan 08, 2007
The ITU-T has started the new year with a great gesture of good will.
All published ITU-T Recommendations are currently freely available from here. The ITU-T also offers such Recommendations in languages other than English, such as French/Spanish and Chinese/Arabic for more recent Recommendations . In my experience the editors at the ITU-T do a great service providing high-quality Recommendations and ITU-T's commitment to multiple languages is truly commendable.
The free access will last at least until the next ITU Council meeting (the beginning of September 2007).
Unfortunately Fast Infoset (X.891) is still in the pre-published state so it is not possible to get it directly for free (but one can download it using for free using the 3 free Recommendation option). Fast Web Services (X.892) is available. It is interesting looking at a specification i helped write in Arabic!
