Similar to previous versions of the standard, the MPI-3.1 standard is now available in hardcover.
Even though I have a copy of the MPI-3.1 PDF for quick/easy reference on my laptop, I find something intangibly inherently useful (and comforting?) in having a paper copy of the standard to thumb through.
The books have been (literally) spanning the color spectrum:
- MPI 2.1: hardcover was yellow
- MPI 2.2: hardcover was orange
- MPI 3.0: hardcover was green
- MPI 3.1: hardcover is blue
