Skype 1.4 for Linux is here!
Following in the footsteps of the Great Cucumber and The Salad Sandwich comes Panacea, the Greek goddess of cures. That’s the codename for our latest Linux release, which went public today as Skype 1.4 for Linux.
We’re very proud of our shiny new release and highly recommend you give it a shot. We tried our best to create a client that you will enjoy. Which is why it’s been written by long-time Linux users for Linux users. And we had our team of turtleneck-wearing designers work hard on the lovely interface you see today. The latest version took its shape based on the feedback and bug reports we get from you via the blogs, forums and our public bug tracker.
Skype 1.4 for Linux is all about creating a solid foundation on which we can build upon. It’s super-easy to install with packages that are designed and tested for your distribution. We’ve made calling much easier and the interface much clearer. And we’ve introduced some great features such as the new streamlined file-transfer manager, birthday reminders and call forwarding, so you can take that Skype call when you’re away from the computer.
Finally, make no mistake about it: under the hood, Skype 1.4 for Linux has the same great audio quality and solid Skype technology that exists in Skype 2.6+ for Mac and Skype 3.2+ for Windows.
