Since the 24th of August a new beta of Skype is available.

Some little look and feel changes, contact groups support, nothing really new, except for the native 64bit support. And I hope it will be more stable.

Download it from here: http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/

I updated it because the old 32bit version recently is very unstable on my system. Maybe due to some library and kernel update from Ubuntu.

After the update you'll need to reconfigure sound settings. And you know how tricky is it on Linux... but with some luck was quite easy on my macbook pro 5.1 running ubuntu: select "HDA NVidia, ALC885 Analog Front speakers (front:CARD=NVidia, DEV=0)" as device for everything, and if you have a system like mine it could work :) . Good luck!
