Skype 3.0: Transfer or no?

The jungle drums are beatin’… softly softly… but they’re beatin’.

See, rumour has it that tomorrow at 8 AM EDT, the much anticipated Skype 3.0 will be released into beta.  Wonder what’s in it?  So do I.  And I can’t find nary a detail anywhere on the web… darn those folks at SparkPR and their foul embargo…

Of course, y’all know what we’re looking for at iotum.  Yup — a call transfer API.  Lenn Pryor promised us all last spring that we’d see a Skype to Skype transfer in the fall of 2006, and a Skype to PSTN in the spring.  Hopefully we won’t be disappointed.

… and how many other goodies?  The anticipation is killing me.

UPDATE: Apparently there are quite a few people in the know out there. As soon as this post was up, I heard from a few of them. Confirmed: the call transfer API is in.  Huzzah!  Also, a new plug-in architecture is one of the key components of the release.  Getting it work has been quite a bit of work, but it’s now been tested with a small group of hand picked ISV’s including Jyve, Pamela, and Unyte.

Know anything more?  Drop me a line, or send email.

    Notice there's no user interface for call transfers, just an API. One of those features that didn't make the 3.0 cut, probably not coming until next summer.

    Bummer! I was looking for it and couldn't find it either.
