I'm still on version 2.8, but with Retina Display the screen sharing feature does not work anymore.

Sorry for my previous reply. I just unistalled and then reinstalled CUPS-PDF on my Mountain Lion and now it works fine.

Works smoothly for me on Mountain Lion. I like the fact that it enables to automatically increase fan speed as CPU temperature increases, a feature I could not find in other similar apps.

Was not working previously on my former Snow Leopard installation however.

Accessing and changing the app settings could be improved, as it requires accessing systems preferences twice.

I have to change my review, as I think it is no more working on my machine with Mountail Lion installed.

The UI of 5.x version of Skype is horrible. This is my opinion. I'll stick with version 2.8 forever I think!

In response to who does not accept criticisms on Skype 5.x and considering these users as "old fashioned", I would simply conduct a survey to count how many these disappointed users (like me) are! i.e., home many user prefer Skype 2.8 UI over that of Skype 5.x.

I found this software not immediate to use, but once you read the help and experiment it functionalities, you get habited to it.
As an example, you cannot right-click a drawing object to change its properties, but you have to select the object and then go to Format-> Drawing Properties.

One of the functionalities I miss very much in this software is the possibility to capture notes from web pages, i.e., to save web pages as notes (e.g., as pdf or html pages with included contents) in the notebooks of the software (something DEVONthink Pro offers - I know, it is commercial...) to further annotate them.

Also, the management of Notebooks (I could not find how to delete an entire Notebook) and Pages can be noticeably improved. As an example, it would be useful to be able to classify them using Tags, similarly to Notes.

Overall, I think this software is great as offered functionalities and value, and once the above extensions/improvements will have been introduced, it will be able to compete with commercial solutions available on the market.

After trying Skype 5 for Mac and verifying the new orrible interface (it takes much more space to show user list) and experiencing several crashes when trying to visualize the message history for a user, I decide to reverted to version 2.8. Luckily I was able to do the revert. I'm on a Macbook Pro too and I think it was an epic fail for the Skype team.

In addition, I find ridiculous and ugly the idea to make Skype users pay for group video chats... There are several solutions which are free!!

After installing this PrefPane, all Microsoft Office 2011 applications crash when opening a file, say a PPT presentation or an Excel spreadsheet!!
I experienced this on Mac OSX 10.5.8.
After removing the prefpane, Office 2011 returned working ok.
