Yes, I know that it's a week late, but it's here.

Mac : http://www.skype.com...getskype-macosx

Windows : http://www.skype.com/go/getskype

What's new:

  • Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration
    Sign up and sign-in is easier than ever. You can now sign into Skype using your Microsoft or Facebook account - there's no need to create a new Skype account. This makes it even easier to connect with friends on Skype without having to set up another account.
  • IM friends on Messenger
    Now you can instant message your Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook.com contacts via Skype all in one place. If you use a Microsoft account today, merging your accounts is easy - just sign in to Skype with your Microsoft account.
  • Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon
    We're working on polishing a feature which will enable audio and video calls to Windows Live Messenger customers using Skype desktop clients. The feature will be available in coming weeks.

    Here's more of what's new with Skype 6.0 for Mac Desktop:

    • Open Chats in Multiple Windows
      We hear your feedback! With this release we've added support to open chats in multiple windows.
    • Retina Display Support
      We also added another feature you've asked for - support Retina display. Now you can take full advantage of improved usability and of higher resolution screens.

    Known issues for Skype 6.0 for Mac:

    On Mountain Lion the profile image picker does not work as expected - recent images can't be seen and effects can't be added. No current workaround.

    The Facebook integration alone solves a large number of issues, as I have friends and relatives that I keep in touch with primarily by Facebook and phone. (My Facebook and work profiles are completely separate - Skype lets me keep them that way, which is a plus for Skype.) (Windows)
