Laatste versie 2.1 werkte eigenlijk ook prima. Betere codecs zijn natuurlijk zeer welkom. Cosmetisch nog weinig verschillen gemerkt. Hij loopt prima, ook de integratie met Kopete.

Als je deze repository in je sources.list zet:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
toevoegen:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner

Kun je gewoon
sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
draaien en haalt hij de update naar binnen.
Als je hem nog niet had eerst installeren:
apt-get install skype

Volgens Phoronix komt er nog meer Skype Linux nieuws op korte termijn:

eindelijk een nieuwere skype versie voor linux. mijn logitech cam werkte wel opeens niet meer (onder ubuntu 10.10 64bit), maar dat was hier te fixen door de known issues door te lezen en de fix voor "Your video capture might show seldomly green, scrambled or black image." toe te passen
Bedankt voor de tip. Mijn webcam ging op zwart, maar doet het nu weer.
