Thank you - I just noticed that this is already mentioned in the list.
I hope this feature will be implemented in near future - the rest of the App looks quite nice and calls work well.
So not even the final version of Skype that will be released in april will have background support? I think this would be a big limitation... not being able to recieve a call if you don't have skype on the foreground!
