Skype 2.1 Beta 2 for Linux adds screen sharing
This week Skype introduced Skype 2.1 beta 2 for Linux. The most noticeable change is that the Linux client now supports screen sharing, a feature that's been available in the Windows version of Skype since the middle of last year.
Skype 2.1 beta 2 for Linux also supports quoting messages in chat, has a new "report abuse" option, and adds support for localized time formats and UI styles.
