One of my pals tweeted about that "finally" they gave some care to linux community by releasing skype version 4.
As it is well established here, I'm a slackware user, which essentially means I don't give a rat ass on the latest software... but skype had like 2 years (or more) without any improvement for the linux crowd.
As usual, no slackware packages available so i tested the slackbuild script available here, changed the version number and ran the upgradepkg utility...
quick and sweet.... it worked. (it had to because, as far as i know, skype does not release code but a binary package that is repackage by the script)
Anyways, besides the eye candy, I see nothing new... in fact, it annoys me that they put a "recent" column on the left of every chat window... but i finally got it off by disabling the default view on the options -> chat ;D
