Ugly it is! Clicking the Compact View up near the minimize button helps, but it is still not as clean previous version.

Yup, that is because eBay bought them and is ruining them. Skype keeps making each beta of version 4 more and more like the old version 3.X line though, I think they are getting an ear-full from their testers.

They are - I am one of the testers and I have clamored about this since the first beta put that new screen - and I told them in *no* uncertain terms to get rid of it or a *lot* of use would stop using it.

Every time a new version comes out I send feedback - and this one with the compact view is actually pretty nice, because the conversations button and other new features actually *do* enhance the old compact view - I think they are pretty close to having this thing done....

hey guys! i'm new here.

my problem is: i've got skype 4 beta to be able to get it working on win 7 (build 7000, 64bit). the program works actually fine, but i don't hear any audio which skype produces: no skype sounds and - in particular - nobody who is calling me... skype shows that there is sound (green bar in audio settings), but i can't hear. the same happens to the person who is calling me: he cannot hear me at all.

are there drivers missing? if yes, could you send me a link?

i hope you can help me,

julson

PS: windows sounds and audio/music in general works.
