Skype just released the overdue update for Mac. It now brings it more inline with the latest Windows version, including group video chat. Here are the key features from the Skype blog:

  • New call control bar — Hang up, mute and more from a mini Skype toolbar that sits on top of any web pages, documents or photos you’ve got open
  • Search chat content to easily navigate past conversations
  • Offline IM so that you can send and receive instant messages even if the recipient is offline
  • Personalise contacts via user profiles
  • Quickly rejoin calls if your Internet connection fails momentarily
  • Floating Contacts Monitor to see your online contacts and contact groups

Also, Skype is doing a $1500 Apple Store gift card Twitter contest:
