New Skype for Mac 2.7 Beta Release…

… addresses video and Leopard issues.

Good news for Mac users. Earlier this week Skype released a new build of Skype for Mac 2.7 beta with two new features:

Leopard compatible – if you have the latest Mac OS X 10.5 then you can use Skype with confidence.

Better video resolution – your video conversations are now set at a whopping 640 x 480 pixels by default with up to 25 frames per second. If your webcam can handle this resolution you’ll soon be appearing in an improved and bigger format on friends screens.

I’ll be looking to test out the video calling with all my acquaintances who have been caught up the recent outbreak of Mac fever to discover how it performs with a Windows user with High Quality Video. I would also appreciate confirmation that the issues with Leopard have been resolved.

Keep in mind Skype’s caution: "Beta releases may be a bit rough about the edges so we recommend you only downloand if you are happy with the odd quirk or hiccup."
