Skype 1.1 for iPhone out

Skype 1.1 for iPhone was released (iTunes link) today.  New features include:

– Voicemail support.
– Support for the following languages:
English, German, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Portuguese, Spanish, Norwegian, Russian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Italian, French, Polish and Japanese.

Skype has taken the iPhone platform by storm.  Skype had passed the million mark within a few days of its launch on March 31st.  Then on April 8th, it passed 2 million.  In May it passed 4 million and is believed to be on at least one out of every 10 iPhones and iPod touches.

This is the first feature update since launch, though push notifications is what we were really hoping for.
