Skype versi 4.0 telah dilepaskan untuk sistem operasi Linux.

Quote dari laman blog rasmi Skype:

You will find four major changes in this release:

1. We have a new Conversations View where users can easily track all of their chats in a unified window. Those users who prefer the old view can disable this in the Chat options;
2. We have a brand new Call View;
3. Call quality has never been better thanks to several investments we made in improving audio quality; and
4. We’ve worked on improving video call quality and have also extended support for more cameras. 

Of course, we have loads of other small improvements and fixes. As you can imagine, the list is so long it would take too much time to write it all, but some are worthy of mention:

  • improved chat synchronization
  • new presence and emoticon icons
  • the ability to store and view phone numbers in a Skype contact’s profile
  • much lower chance Skype for Linux will crash or freeze
  • chat history loading is now much faster
  • support for two new languages: Czech (flag:cz) and Norwegian (flag:no)

Yeah. Rilisan beta sudah melalui fasa akhirnya dan rilisan stabil mengambil alih kedudukan. Skype untuk Linux adalah perkara yang ditunggu-tunggu, dan jika anda sedang menggunakan sistem operasi Linux sambil membaca entri ini, saya pasti anda sememangnya teringin untuk mencuba.
Jadi anda boleh muat turun Skype 4.0 untuk Linux di sini : Skype for Linux

Sedikit nota, pada pautan muat turun itu tidak terdapat versi untuk Ubuntu 11.04 sehingga 12.04, tetapi pakej pemasang yang diberikan adalah serasi (compatible), jadi anda cuma perlu muat turun sahaja dan terus pasangkannya. Untuk memudahkan pemasangan, gunakan gdebi.
