The latest version of Skype 3.0 for Windows is now released. Just 7 days after the previous release, Skype for Windows is again released on February 7, 2007.

A couple of bug fixes is corrected in this version of Skype. Also, take note of unsolved known issue.

Change Log

  • * bugfix: Sometimes changing avatar caused error “List index out of bounds”
  • * bugfix: API ACL form was misaligned on high dpi screens

Some of the Cool Features in Skype 3.0 includes:

System Requirement

  • * PC running Windows 2000 or XP. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
