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

[b]What's new:[/b][list]
[*][b]Microsoft and Facebook Account Integration[/b]
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.
[*][b]IM friends on Messenger[/b]
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.
[*][b]Calling with Messenger friends is coming soon[/b]
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.

[b]Here's more of what's new with Skype 6.0 for Mac Desktop:[/b][list]
[*][b]Open Chats in Multiple Windows[/b]
We hear your feedback! With this release we've added support to open chats in multiple windows.
[*][b]Retina Display Support[/b]
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.
[/list]

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)
