updated 10:55 pm EDT, Tue June 22, 2010

SDK set for Linux, Mac, Windows platforms

Skype is set to launch a new software development kit (SDK), SkypeKit, that will allow device and software makers to integrate Skype functionality with their products. The kit will include a variety of APIs for features such as voice and video calling, instant messaging, and the company's audio formatting based on the SILK codec.

SkypeKit will be available on June 23 for the Linux platform, while Windows and Mac variants will be released sometime in the next few weeks. The program is still in beta, with participation restricted to an invite-only basis.
