Skype for Mac 2.5 Goes Gold

Skype for Mac 2.5, as I previously mentioned back in November, has now gone into public release and can now be downloaded

This from their PR rep...

As you know, the beta version of this beautiful piece of software has been available since mid-November. Since then, Skype has worked hard at ironing out the beta wrinkles and is pleased to release a public version into the wild. Skype has even added a nifty little birthday reminder feature, to help you impress your Skype contacts (and secure an invitation to the party).

Skype for Mac 2.5 features the ability to send SMS messages to any mobile phone in the world, bringing friends, family and colleagues yet another step closer. Also, Mac users can now use Skype to hold conference calls with up to nine other people. Calls can be made to Skype contacts for free and to landlines and mobiles for a small fee, via SkypeOut. So, whether your contacts are in one city or scattered around the world, you can now get together to share a laugh or hatch the next killer business idea without hassle.

Of course, Skype for Mac 2.5 also does free one-on-one video calls (assuming users have a broadband Internet connection).

Reminder: Today is the final day for Skype users in the U.S. and Canada to subscribe to the Skype Unlimited Calling plan for the introductory rate of $14.95 ($17.50 Cdn) for 12 months of unlimited SkypeOut calls to landline or mobile phone numbers in the U.S. or Canada… the price goes up tomorrow to the regular rate of $29.95 ($35 Cdn) for the same 12 months of unlimited SkypeOut calls.
