Re: Regarding My Skype Update,

No....one you download the .dmg installer you have to run it.  Then you'll have the latest.

 

Click on Skype > About Skype to see what version you have installed.  The current version is 5.6.0.143.   That's what that link was to.

Re: Regarding My Skype Update,

I've just looked and 5.6.0.203 is indeed the latest.  They snuck one in since I checked a few days ago.

 

If you keep getting that popup, do ahead and run the installer you dowloaded via the link I provided.  It won't hurt to reinstall and it may silence the pop-up.
