    Hi FT comm,
    Great news this about Skype. But I got a couple of questions I’d appreciate anyone could help me. Do I have to unnistall/remove the beta skype version or by installing the new one version makes upgrading kind of performing? If so, how can I do it correctly (from e.g. cli) I mean, with no leaving orphan files, controling dependencies properly etc.
    Thanks in advance.
