Skype releases Skype 5.0 final: The changes for the world of users.

So Skype released Skype 5.0 final now. And there are some changes and some facts about it for the world of users (so you and me).

Skype now intergrated Facebook in their new Skype 5.0 final. Facebook is now everywher, it seems!, unlike ICQ, friends are not on your contact list (Facebook Chat) but it's about calling them by SkypeOut or SMSing them from Skype

But I can see why. Facebook Chat is instable. It often disconnects or you are often thrown offline. If Skype includes it, it will affect the functionality of SKype (as it does at ICQ, everytime, Facebook has a connection problem, contacts are removed and ICQ freezes for 2 mins).

when Facebook chat goes offline on the Facebook homepage itself, the same happens inside ICQ, it is just a problem of the Facebook chat servers.

This would cause thousands of incoming support request. ICQ has no problem here, as they closed the whole support department years ago!

Skype made an announcement on their The Big Blog (ex Share Skype Blog) here.

Also many Mac users will be happy to here, that they announced: "For those of you who are Mac users: we intend to release an update to our Mac app soon."

See more about this, here.

Also, the RTX USB SKype DualPhhone stopped working since SKype 5.0 for Windows Beta 2 and since RTX put an end in the firmware update development it will never work there anymore. So time to sell it.

In case you are interested in buying it (it works up to Beta 1 of 5.0 of Skype for Windows), you can bid on it here :)
