Skype Wrapper, a third-party plugin that integrates VoIP client Skype with Ubuntu's Messaging Menu, has been updated with a handful of new features.

There's no question that tabbed interfaces - be they in a web browser or chat application - help to streamline multitasking and window management.

A day or two back we ran a nifty how-to feature on controlling Skype from your instant messaging application in Ubuntu 11.04. This approach integrated your Skype contacts into your Empathy or Pidgin buddy list, but also told you how to 'hide' the lurid green icon from the system tray.

Gzap stopped by the OMG! Ubuntu! inbox to drop off a tip that unifies Skype and Empathy; by installing the pidgin-skype plugin from the Ubuntu Software Centre you can manage your Skype contacts from the buddy-list of Ubuntu's default IM client Emapthy.
A new beta release of internet telephony application Skype is available. And about time too, eh?
Managing your Skype chats and controlling you Skype status with Dock application 'Docky' is simple.
Can't live without Shutter/Dropbox/Opera/insert-other-app-here sitting in Natty's system panel? Quick fix ahoy.
