The big news is that this beta version finally includes support for VIDEO!
I tested it out with a colleague of mine (my install was Fedora his Ubuntu) and it seemed to work quite well. The video appeared to be clear, clean and fairly responsive.
Now my big question (ok, two questions) is when this version of Skype will trickle down to the Nokia N800 / N810? Also, is version 2.0 of Skype for Linux going to be included in Google’s Android project? After all, eBay is a partner in the OpenHandsetAlliance.
