Skype 1.2 Update for iPhone (No Push Notifications)

Skype has updated their iPhone application to v1.2; however, the update does not include push notifications.

What's New in This Version:
- Set up call forwarding from your iPhone – forward Skype calls to a phone number when you're not signed in.
- Improved performance and better audio quality on Skype-to-Skype calls.
- Even easier to send text messages (SMS) - Send SMS from the Call tab.
- Calls are connected much faster.
- Status of your contacts is updated more often.
- You can now decide whether you want to stay online/offline when the iPhone is locked. We've added this into settings.
- Contact groups are now supported, making it easier to see who is online and separate your saved phone numbers.
- You can now edit the name of your saved phone numbers.
- Added support for skype: URL schemes in Safari.
- When creating a new account the country in your Skype profile is taken from the language used on your iPhone.
- Group chat profile pictures are now shown.
- You can now remove your profile picture.
- Added a 'Help' link to 'Forgot your password'.
- Improved support for proxy configurations.

You can download the update from the App Store now...

It doesn't work on jb iPhone 3gs. Any solution? Tried to uninstall & reinstall but with no luck. The app can't be started. Everytime I started, it returned to home page…

Since I turned off Push notifications on my MobileMe apps, my battery life doubled if not tripled. Until Apple comes out with a battery that is at least three times more powerful, I will won't worry about Push. The noted improvements sound great.
