Skype for Linux: a status update
A quick status update for all of you out there longing for news:
- I’ve been struggling with getting PulseAudio support to work on a range of different server versions – it wasn’t that simple. Suffice to say, different pulseaudio versions fail differently. We’re planning to support down to 0.9.10, but my suggestion is: if you want good sound – upgrade to 0.9.15 at least.
- The video is now working, but there are a few corner cases we want to weed out before releasing.
- UI work is finished for this release and no additional work is planned in this area so far.
I know many of you have been waiting for a while for this news – I can’t make any promises about when it’ll be released, but watch this blog for further updates.
