Microsoft today released Skype for Linux Alpha version 1.10. This new application is a completely redesigned Skype version which has nothing common with the previously available Skype 4.3. Finally, Skype for Linux got support for 1-to-1 video calls.
As of this writing, the application supports 1-on-1 video calls only between Skype for Linux Alpha clients. Also, this update disables the ability to connect with older versions of Skype for Linux Alpha 1.1 - 1.6. Those users will be asked to update to the latest version.
