Skype for Linux 1.4 Released!

Skype for Linux 1.4 Alpha has been released. This doesn’t mean it’s ready for prime time just yet, there are some issues that still need to be worked out, but it’s a complete rewrite and a step towards a much more stable version for linux.
Video and SMS functionality is still not ready for this release, but there is a new file transfer window. You can read what the requirements and current issues for Skype 1.4 alpha here.

We’re again close to our mother nature birth cycle – nine months between 1.2 and 1.3 and seven months between 1.3 and 1.4. But this early born is an Alpha version, so we will take our two months to make it a real cute baby.

Good news is that they’re expecting release cycles to release every few weeks until they reach Gold. They’ve also put together a bugtracker for this linux alpha version where you can report bugs or keep track of them.

About Pete

This is my blog, my way. There's a bit of everything in it, most of which I find interesting one way or another. I always keep my eye on gadgets, technology, software, site scripts, web site designs, templates, wordpress themes, wordpress in general, along with a whole barrage of other things we find here on the internet. UPDATE: My life has changed in so many ways since beginning this blog seemingly so many years ago. A majority of the history here is in technology (pre-2014) and now it's more about life. A more focused journey of myself and the ride we're all on. So if you like a little bit of this and that, then hopefully you'll enjoy the new focus here at my blog. :-)
