Skype 2.7 for Mac is here.
Update: We’ve just released a beta version of Skype 2.8 for Mac
Ok, I’ll admit – I really this version. Today we released Skype 2.7 for Mac, and it has just the kind of features that us, Mac users, love. In our last version, we made Skype sound better, and in Skype 2.7 we’ve made it look better. We’ve enabled improved video quality on all the current Mac desktops or laptops. We’ve also introduced a feature you’ve all been asking for: contact grouping. With this version you will now be able to group your friends and family so you can keep an eye on those you care about.
Not only have we made it look good, but we’ve introduced my favourite feature of Skype for Mac after video: address book integration. This feature will save you loads of time — you can now see someone who is in your address book from within Skype’s contact list and be able to call them directly. And don’t worry, these numbers are not sent to anyone or stored on any Skype servers. We’re only displaying those that exist on your own computer.
We’ve made it better and easier to use. We’ve streamlined the way you send and receive files so they are all grouped within the new file transfer manager, we’ve introduced the ability to automatically redial busy numbers (so now you can get through to those pesky radio competition hotlines), and made it easier to change your volume and audio settings whilst you’re in a call.
We haven’t forgotten about the quality of Skype for Mac either — we’ve fixed a whole load of bugs, Skype for Mac is now available in русский язык (Russian), Čeština (Czech) or Norsk (Norwegian Bokmål) – thanks to Igor, Lukáš and Kenneth.
Best of all, Leopard users will purr since its ready for Mac OS 10.5 Leopard.
