How to get the upcoming Font Awesome Pro 5.0 for $20

I love using the free icon set Font Awesome in my web applications, and I know I am not alone. A new major version is in the works, and the creators are using Kickstarter to help fund it. Font Awesome version 5 will still be free, but as an early backer you get the Pro versions, with over a thousand extra icons, and much more. And the price? Only $20 until the end of the Kickstarter tomorrow Monday at Noon Eastern time. After this the Pro version will be $40 and each of the currently 18 icon packs (each with 30 icons) will be $10. So this is a substantial savings.

The new version should be available in May 2017 but as we all know, plans can always change. You can read more about the Kickstarter campaign or take a look at what you get in Font Awesome 4.7.



If you are doing any kind of web development and not already using it, you should take a closer look at Font Awesome.
