Updated Skype for Mac "coming soon"

On Thursday, Skype unveiled Skype 5.0 for Windows. Among some pretty cool new features are group video calling and Facebook integration. The Facebook integration lets you view your Facebook news feed, sync your Skype mood messages and Facebook status, and call friends from your Facebook phone book. They're all cool features, and they're all for Windows, ... but not for long.

The official Skype for Mac blog says that the next version of Skype for Mac is "coming soon" and will deliver group video calling to the Mac. While they don't specifically mention Facebook integration, the Skype blog does note that the next iteration of Skype for Mac will be a "complete overhaul, both in terms of the way it looks, and in terms of functionality." That sounds pretty cool -- now, how about a Skype iPad app?
