Skype for Linux 1.4 will be released after this weekend.
This was just released by Skype’s Linux blog:
Skype for Linux 1.4 has miserably failed to launch today.
Because of some technical problems we took more time than expected to get it out and then it was decided to abandon the release today.
Unfortunately, we can not release on friday, because during weekend we could not wipe your ass fast enough in case of emergency and that is a problem.
So, you’ll have to wait whole week more before you can take a look. Sorry for that.
A changelog is not yet available (or, better said: I don’t find one), but we can expect a Qt4 client. Also, this note by a developer at least gives hope:
Also never mind the version number – 1.4 just means “right after 1.3” and is not tied to any particular Skype for
Windows version or specific feature set.
