Skype goes Universal

Skype has released Skype for Mac OS X, bringing native compatibility for Intel-based Macs to the free communication software as a Universal Binary. The software can forward calls to other Skype names or regular phones, pause iTunes automatically when a call comes in, and includes support for enhanced notifications with Growl. Skype allows users to show Skype status on the Web as well as in email signatures, and the update supports Traditional Chinese. Skype has also warned of a known issue where users who created their account on Intel-based computers will not be able to revert to earlier versions of Skype after they install version Skype requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and is available for free.
