I noticed that Skype 4.2 is a pretty popular version. I thought that if someone wants the 4 version, he would just search for Skype 4 or Skype 4.0, but it seems that people know about 4.2 and they want it. This is why I decided to upload it here in a separate post.
Actually this is the last version from the 4.x series. After 4.2 is Skype 5.0. So there is sense in the popularity of 4.2 over 4.0. I mean it is the newest that is not from the 5.x series, that some people do not like.
So, in the top right there is a blue button that says Download Skype 4.2, from where you can instantly download the program. It works on Windows XP, Vista and 7. Below you can see some of the major changes in this version as well as several screenshots of the program. To download a different version of Skype, please visit this page: Download Skype.
