Skype for Mac beta with SMS
Today we put out two new betas.
Skype 2.5 for Mac beta
Skype 2.5 for Mac beta contains the long-awaited SMS feature.
Other notable changes are 10-way conference calling and other fixes. Read more on the Mac blog.
And just to make it clear, Skype 3.0 beta for Windows also supports 10-way conference calling. In some earlier versions of Skype, 10-way calling was limited only to Intel DualCore platforms, but we have now removed this restriction and 10-way calling continues to be available on Intel DualCore as well as other platforms. (Note that regardless of if it’s a DualCore or not, you still need a pretty juicy processor to support all that call activity, and performance may suffer with slower machines.)
Skype 3.0 for Windows beta update
This one contains important fixes to last week’s beta and we recommend everyone running last week’s beta to upgrade to the new one.
UPDATE: this was available for a while today but we had to pull it since we got reports of some potentially pretty disastrous bugs. If you managed to download the update and it works for you, no need to worry, but for others, we’ll post another beta update when we have more info on this.
Note about change logs
The change logs used to be linked straight from the download pages, but are no longer there. Instead, from now on you can find them at the following locations. We are trying to make the web pages as easy to use as possible, while moving the more detailed and in-depth information away to our wikis, forums, blogs and other channels.
