    Skype version 5.10 for Windows, 5.8 for Mac OS X and 4.0 for Linux Download Available

    The team at Skype has announced version 5.8 of its Skype VoIP client for Mac OS X users, and also version 5.10 for Windows and version 4.0 for Linux.

    Skype 5.8 optimizes the features already introduced in the video conferencing software. The release of version 5.0 of its software to Mac OS X users has provoked strong reactions on the followers of the service. This version broke with the traditional user interface by introducing a new contact list features. Skype finally backtracked and announced that, it is now possible to resize the window.

    Conversations conducted with Skype users on Android and iOS receive a slight update, taking into account the phone's accelerometer to the speaker to adjust the position of the window on the Mac. The premium option offering screen sharing with multiple participants is also improved and it is now possible to return the flow presentation.

    Skype says that the application provides compatibility with the next version of the operating system of Apple, that is the Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8) and can be used from Leopard (Mac OS 10.5). The next update should improve the IM with a better management for different conversations.

    Meanwhile, fans of the Ubuntu system have also observed an update available within the application manager or from the official website from the publisher. Linux Skype version goes directly from version 2.2 to 4.0 beta. The development team announced that it has incorporated several features that is already available in other versions of the application and adds that this new version is particularly rich in novelties. On instant messaging, Skype 4.0 for Linux offers a tabbed conversation management and better synchronization as well.

    Skype finally goes in version 5.10 on Windows with among others also, with the ability to add contacts to their favorites. Note also an ever-increasing integration of Facebook since the friends list of Skype and social networks are now combined into one. Finally some users encountering compatibility issues with the new video engine of Skype can now choose to return to the previous version of it.

    Skype users can now share their screen with groups of 10 people during a video call, although only one member in the group needs to be a premium member. You can also download Skype from its official website, which is listed below:

    Thanks for providing such useful links. I love Skype because it is a free desktop software program which allows its users to communicate with one another, free of charge, via chat, voice calling or video calling.
