Sure there is a plan for Linux 5, & it's feature set...  

 

 

 

Sadly the only way to see it is to be a developer for Skype, they are quite reluctant to give advance info on the future versiona of Skype.

Just got an e-mail from Skype yesterday that said the following. "Using Linux? We'll be releasing a version for Linux devices soon. Please visit Skype.com and go to Downloads to check if the release is available." So, it looks like something is coming soon.

news was released on 23-09-2012 12:58 wow. In 5 year you will have update for linux, skype 17 and only wait and see how MS will buy canonical one day and drag it to s$$t (as usual) and development of any kind will stop forever
