If you were irked about being unable to quote IM sections from Skype conversations, that got fixed in Skype 2.1 Beta 2. If you’re amazed at how irksome connecting Skype through PulseAudio, the default audio engine in Ubuntu and a few other distributions, you’re not getting much help here. With that out of the way, your Linux-friendly editor will point out the big list of improvements and fixes in this release.
Skype for Linux 2.1 Beta 2 is a free download for Linux systems only. If you’ve discovered a few smart Skype fixes on your Linux system or want to see something else fixed up, tell us about it in the comments.
