Skype update adds 38 fixes
Skype Technologies recently unveiled Skype for Mac 126.96.36.1997, bringing with it 38 bug fixes, and much tighter compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Among the Leopard-specific fixes, Skype would sometimes crash when ending video calls, or when moving the "Send Video" windows. In addition, chat window emoticons would sometimes be shown in the wrong "Space" in Leopard; this has been resolved. Skype 188.8.131.527 is available for download from Skype's website.
The new version also resolves issues with video calls being tinted with a green cast, as well as a problem where chat windows were not closed properly. Moving a contact from one chat drawer to another no longer crashes the app, and many problems with file transfers have been resolved.
