Linux gets new beta version of Skype. Skype first added support for video nearly 2 years ago to Skype 2.0 beta for Linux, and now that the Linux version of the popular VoIP client has hit 2.1 beta, Skype has cranked up the audio and video quality a bit. Now Skype for Linux uses the same SILK audio codec as the Windows and Mac clients, and packs support for high quality video.

Skype 2.1 beta for Linux also supports sending SMS messages, organizing contacts within contact groups, and a few chat enhancements. The update also brings support for Pulse Audio.

Skype 2.1 for Linux is available for Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and OpenSUSE.
