Skype logo (75 pix) Dinsdag is de finalrelease van versie 4.1 van Skype voor Windows uitgekomen. Met Skype is het mogelijk om door middel van tekst, spraak of beeld, of een combinatie daarvan, over een internetverbinding met andere Skype-gebruikers te communiceren. In versie 4.1 is daar de mogelijkheid om de desktop met de gesprekspartner te delen aan toegevoegd. Verder kunnen er nu contacten van nog meer verschillende bronnen worden geïmporteerd, waaronder GMail, Hotmail, Yahoo en AOL, en is er verder aan de kwaliteit van spraak en video gesleuteld. Hieronder is het volledige changelog van versie 4.1.0.136 te vinden:

New features and improvements
  • Share your screen with other Skype users
  • Keyboard navigation and MSAA support
  • Import contacts from more external address books
  • Birthday reminders
  • Send contacts from your own list to other Skype users
  • Skype browser toolbar improvements
    • Highlighting of toll-free phone numbers
    • Skype Name Recognition – identifies the names of your Skype contacts if they appear on web pages and allows you to communicate with them via Skype.
  • Improvements to the vibrancy of the background colour scheme
  • Minor changes to the area shown during a call, containing the volume controls.
  • Installer:
    • Our installer for the Skype application and bundled optional applications now uses the standard Microsoft MSI installation methods.

  • Improved password rules for better security
  • Invite your friends to use Skype

nou dat noem ik pas een lijst van verbeteringen :)
Dit is nog een oude exe. Na installatie staat er bij mij nog steeds skype 4.0.

Ook is deze exe gesigned op 2 juni 2009........
Ja, is een beetje dom van Skype. Zelfs via de website downloaden krijg je na installatie gewoon je oude versie 4.0. 8)7 |:(
Terwijl op hun website staat 4.1 nu downloaden... |:(
Net gedownload maar ik heb gewoon versie 4.1. De link werkt gewoon.
Nou bij mij niet... al drie keer geprobeerd. Vista Business/Firefox 3.5.
Ik heb en krijg na installatie deze versie:
meuk: Skype for Windows 4.0.0.227
Erg vreemd... :'(
Komt er nu eindelijk eens een update voor de OS X versie ... De laatste stable is al weer van meer dan een jaar terug!
En een update op de linux versie, dat is ook al zo lang geleden.
Waar wacht je op dan? Ik gebruik het ook, maar mis eigenlijk niets.. Functioneert goed.
De usablility en user experience kan beter. Ik heb Skype op de Mac heel even gebruikt en dat werkt zo veel lekkerder.
met 4.0 had ik het probleem dat ik niet in vista, tegelijk de microfoon kon gebruiken in zowel skype als in ventrillo....

iemand dit probleem nog steeds in 4.1 ?

gebruik de onboard audio (realtek hd)
Heeft er iemand een manier om Skype chat windows + eventueel Skype zelf een kopje kleiner te maken wat betreft overbodig grote avatars / knoppen / enz...

3.x had een soort IRC mode + Compact/Hidden mode waarmee je wel vooruit kon, maar nu 4.x een verplichte update is vind ik het echt een NOG irritanter programma :(

Wat een rommel zeg ...
4.x verplicht? Mijn 3.8 van oldversion werkt nog prima :)
Verplichte update? Je kunt 3.8.0.188 (laatste versie van de 3.x branch) nog gewoon krijgen bij sites zoals oldapps.com.
Skype blijft crashen. Oude versie maar proberen..

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
