Yes, but not exactly "recently". It's news all the way back April LAST YEAR (and effective in October).
As for "cheap" registrars, DomainSite.com for instance, charges $7.88 for new registrations and $6.99 for transfers (a.k.a. first year). And yes, they allow more than 2 nameservers.

i just notice that Namecheap now charge 9.29 and so does yahoo. while godaddy have it at 6.
Is there a recent hike on the price? Not that i don't like namecheap service but it doesn't hurt to check out a cheaper register.
can you guys recommend a good and cheap register that allow more than 2 name servers?
The ICANN fee increased prices for many registrars out there.
