Re: I think Skype is dead, daad, dead

8.71.0.49

That's what came down in the automatic update.  So, I uninstalled it after restarting the system, because the sounds weren't working.

After a fresh download from skype.com, it seems to be OK so far.

I'm checking regularly for messages, just in case.

The ringtone when a call comes in works, and the hang up sound.

The typing and the incoming message sounds don't seem to work.

Hi, John. That's usually what I do, too, but I heard people talking about version 8.71, and I only had 8.68, and the updater didn't give me 8.71, so I went to the website to update.

I just update when the updater comes up when I reboot Windows.

Well, Lino. You are running Skype version 8.68, and I just yesterday to the Skype website, and updated to version 8.71. If you want to give up that easily, it's your choice. But I'd rather see them develop something that works, instead of developing something it will take them several builds to fix any bugs.

Well like I said. I've not seen any new development of new versions of Skype. Has anyone heard anything new from Microsloth? I'm running Skype Indider builds and I'am at V 8.68. I'll give it till May 31 and if I hear nothing I'm ditching Skype forever and lieaving this list. Nothing against you guys of course. You all are good people.
