Skype 2.0 Beta released

Skype has just released Skype 2.0 beta, a shiny new version of the incredibly popular "free phone calls over-the-Internet" application. There are lots of little tweaks, including a much cleaner interface, and one Big New Feature: video calling.

Clean new interface.

The eminently quotable Walt Mossberg, writing about the Skype 2 beta in today's Wall Street Journal (subscription required) concludes:
Skype has escaped from its niche and is heading for the mainstream. You might want to give it a try.
The Skype 2.0 beta is available for Windows machines only, but will be on other platforms soon.

(I'm user "enrevanche" at Skype, by the way, if anyone wants to chat.)
