    It's the same i think. As a matter of fact when you download it there is info that 4.0 is for 10.x Ubuntu systems...

    Re: Skype for Linux 4.0 released

    Since Skype (like KDE) is written with the Qt framework, does that mean that KDE distros (like Kubuntu) will seem smoother (less overhead, more responsive, fewer dependencies to load, more consistent window controls, whatever) than Gnome distros?

    Thank goodness Microsoft bought Skype so that we can finally see it offer better support for Linux systems.

    Doesn't really make any difference other than cosmetic appearance. Fewer dependencies yes but not for me as I run several qt apps anyway.

    I found that you can still pause the call from the main Skype window for some reason, and pausing it is a work around to closing the notification and bringing the skype call window back when it vanishes.

    Maybe it'll help someone...

    Do you think this update will get to the Skype PPA soon?
    ...and that's the way the cookie crumbles.

    There isn't a skype ppa, the package is usually located in the partner repository, which can be enabled via software sources, either in the software centre or synaptic package manager.

    What would be really awesome is if there were an actual 64 bit build available, not just a package with "amd64" in the name

    ... so that we didn't also have to install half of the i386 repo as multiarch.

    Well, I actually have a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype.list and partner repositories disabled. Maybe it got there through Ubuntu Tweak. Is Skype in partner the newest version?
