The new, shiny Skype 2.0

No longer BETA-release, Skype 2.0 is offering quite an impressive update featureset:

  • Our best ever call quality.
  • Smile, wave or say hello to anyone, anywhere in the world with free one-to-one video conversations.
  • Easily sort your contacts into groups like ‘colleagues’, ‘friends’ and ‘family’.
  • Display mood messages and your local time, so people know where you are and how you’re feeling.

I've downloaded, setup, and can see only one issue in the new UI - the inability to un-select a contact in the Contacts List. It's still too early to tell, but that's really the only thing that I can see that I don't like about this release. Time will tell...

So get downloading, and add me to your "Dominoids" group!
