+ - Skype Releases Open Software Development Kit - Lin->

An anonymous reader writes: SkypeKit gives Linux developers access to core functionality, allowing Linux developers to add video, calling and instant messaging features to desktop applications. The SDK also comes with the freshly royalty-free SILK codec for high-end audio. Skype is hoping that the inclusion of SILK will popularize the codec, extending its reach. Currently, the SkypeKit beta is only available for Linux on an invite-only basis, with Windows and Mac versions planned in coming weeks. The SDK does not cover Android or Mac, an odd choice considering the announcement of SkypeKit championed itself for extending the functionality of Skype to multiple platforms and devices. Including smartphones in the SDK seems like an obvious move.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.
