Skype 2.7 for Mac Update – We've made it better
Update: We’ve just released a beta version of Skype 2.8 for Mac
In the words of Ron Burgundy – I don’t know how to put this but this version of Skype is kind of a big deal. This latest release is all about those features you may not see, but make a big difference to how you use Skype on your Mac.
We’ve made Skype for Mac smarter in the manner it “just works” as it now supports NAT-PMP and uPnP which means Skype can now ‘talk’ to your internet connection in order to get the best connection, and thus give you the best Skype experience. The other major change we’ve made is something I’ve been looking forward to – it’s for all our friends out there in colleges and dorms the world over or for those of you that must enter a username and password to use the Internet on your Mac. With this version Skype “just works” as it supports “Authenticated Proxies” – so if Safari works for you, so should Skype.
Thanks again for your constant feedback, bug reports and support – it’s meant we’ve been able to fix a bunch of bugs and updated our non-English versions of Skype for Mac. If you wish to read the full technical release notes, check them out over at developer.skype.com.
So please go and download it now, and remember – stay classy.
