the Beta tag is removed. Hope to see the SkyDrive soon available in

UPDATE : Just as I finish posting this, the SkyDrive Team has just officialy posted the details :
know it's been mighty quiet on the SkyDrive blog, but we’ve been hard
at work on a new version that we’re proud to announce today!

more space; and you want SkyDrive where you are. Today we're giving you
both. You now have five times the space you had before — that’s 5GB of free online storage for your favorite documents, pictures, and other files.
SkyDrive is also available now in 38 countries/regions.
In addition to Great Britain, India, and the U.S., we’re live in
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile,
Colombia, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador,
Finland, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the
Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru,
Puerto Rico, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan,
This release also includes bug fixes and improvements to make the site even faster and more reliable. We’re proud of this release — so proud, in fact, that we’re officially removing the Beta tag!
