Timbuktu 8.6 with Skype
with its expected February release of version 8.6. Skype integration will allow Timbuktu users to use Voice-Over-IP technology to speak to one another in real-time, and will add a sound component to distance learning--another application for Timbuktu--, according to The Mac Observer. The update will allow audio-only connections to users of Skype clients not running Timbuktu, and will be available for free to all currently existing customers of any version 8 product.
