A new version has just been released:
Please click the "Get Skype" link at the top of this page and download the normal version of Skype, NOT the beta version to get this new version.
This new version is 188.8.131.52 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:
Help -> About Skype
How many contacts do you have and how many chats, rough guess, are you in, especially Group chats?
Yes but the downside is you maybe forced to upgrade and you will be missing many fixes and features as well.
Hello, before I had version 5.3 and Skype used several hundred MB of memory, that already threatened my machine. Now I am testing 5.5 and it stands at 150mb, I am curious how it behaves when keeping it open for several days and using it throughout as I do.
But if the memory goes up again I would like to downgrade even if I lose features. Which version would you recommend to have been very stable and efficient (this counts at the end of the day for me)?
