Skype for Windows 1.4 — "Have you got the new Skype?"
We were a bit quiet for the past few days. This is because we had to wrap up Skype for Windows 1.4. It is out now and available at your nearest Skype download site. [Get it while there are still some copies left!](http://www.skype.com/products/skype/windows/)
Now, a lot of great new things in this release. The major new features in this release are [Call Forwarding](http://www.skype.com/go/help.faq.callforwarding), [Personalise Skype](http://www.skype.com/go/shop.personal) and improved call quality. You will never miss a call again with forwarding to SkypeOut numbers and Skype Names, and the calls sound better than ever.
We’ve brushed up our [Tools for Sharing](http://blogs.skype.com/tools_for_sharing/tools_for_sharing/sharing_good._not_sharing_bad./) quite a bit. Find many new [banners](http://blogs.skype.com/affiliate/) (several of you asked for larger variety of non-Flash — go grab’em!) and updated [Skype buttons](http://blogs.skype.com/tools_for_sharing/skype_buttons/skype_buttons/) — more about them in the post below. Also, some completely new stuff like [shout-outs and flyers](http://blogs.skype.com/tools_for_sharing/tools_for_sharing/shout_out/).
]]>Many minor improvements too. See the full [change log](http://www.skype.com/products/skype/windows/changelog.html) for all the details. Accessibility got quite a rework — thanks to everyone who helped during the public beta period! The contact list is now accessible through Microsoft Active Accessibility, greatly improving usability in screen readers and other accessibility tools.
If both you and your friends are on Skype 1.4, you can now see how many contacts they have — see who can get more Let us know what you think of this.
As always, please let our friendly [Customer Support](http://www.skype.com/go/help) know if you have any problems using the new version, especially the paid services like Call Forwarding to SkypeOut and Personalise Skype, and give us and other users feedback in the [forums](/forum_links/).
