    Hi, I'm using the new Skype 5.0 Beta for my mbp, and there is a red notification number on my dock icon, but i can't find how to check them? Anyone know how to do this on this version? thanks.

    obviously you haven't used it yet. i just upgraded and far prefer the upgraded version. Is there someone who is actually knowledgeable who knows the answer to my question?

    That happens to me too, and I am not using any beta versions.

    Could be a bug in Version 5.0. Remember it is a BETA ;-)

    The beta is really not as good as it seems. It takes up way to much cpu power just for idle. There is a lot of work to do till I try it again.

    I have used it, and if that's the new UI I'll just keep my 2.8. It's the most bloated unintelligent UI work I have ever seen. :rolleyes:

    the thing is, 2.8 doesn't support video conference calls... does it? among other things...

    No it doesn't, but that's the only upside compared to 2.8. What are these other things I have missed?

    I agree that conference calling is great, and I missed it in 2.8. But the new UI is horrible. A lot of space on the is lost to unnecessary big icons and the chat frame is much bigger than it really needs to be. I want the video to be as big as possible, while also being able to see the chat frame. I lose too much of the video in 5.0b if I do this.
