The jungle drums are beatin’… softly softly… but they’re beatin’.
See,Â rumour has it that tomorrow at 8 AM EDT, the much anticipated Skype 3.0 will be released into beta.Â Wonder what’s in it?Â So do I.Â 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.Â Yup — a call transfer API.Â 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.Â Hopefully we won’t be disappointed.
… and how many other goodies?Â The anticipation is killing me.
UPDATE: Apparently there are quite a few people in the know out there.Â As soon as this post was up, I heard from a few of them.Â Confirmed: the call transfer API is in.Â Huzzah!Â Also, a new plug-in architecture is one of the key components of the release.Â 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?Â Drop me a line, or send email.Â
