The 2.0 version of Skype for the Mac has finally gone gold. The last time I gave a beta version of 2.0 for the Mac a spin I wasn’t very impressed with the video quality, it seemed not quite as good as iChat and significantly worse than SightSpeed. But now that a final version has been released I’ll give it a fresh chance and report back here soon. (Though if the comments on the Share Skype announcement are any indication, I shouldn’t expect much. It sounds like Skype may have actually sacrificed video quality in order to support older Mac models). On a more positive note, one of my colleagues who had experienced consistent problems using the Mac version of Skype for business conference calls reports that the final release seems to have fixed the troubles he was having.
