Skype for Linux 1.3 beta
Skype for Linux 1.3 beta is now available. There wasn’t a new Linux version since the end of last year and I didn’t really want to post anything until there was something available for you to actually download and use. There is now, so [download the new Skype for Linux 1.3 beta](http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/13beta.html). One highlight of this release was that support for the ALSA sound system has been the most requested feature since we first released Skype for Linux almost two years ago. Well, it’s there now.
[Read more details about this release in our Skype for Linux blog.](http://blogs.skype.com/sites/linux/2006/06/open_beta.html) This is where we’ll post any updates regarding Skype for Linux, so if you’re a Linux fan, keep an eye on it.
