Skype 4 (3)
Skype Beta 4.1 has been released for download and offers several new features. The most interesting among them might be the screen sharing. Screen sharing means that you can send what you see on your screen to another person. This allows showing presentation without having to send the files themselves.
It is important that screen sharing doesn't establish a remote connection, so the receiving user can't control your PC. The desktop is just filmed and send via Skype. Furthermore it is possible to import contacts from AOL, Google Mail, Linked In, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo. And the reminder of birthdays is back, too.
You can download the Skype 4.1 Beta below. The new features and changes have been summarized in the Release Notes.
