It still works in the 4.1 version. Make sure you are on the "Messages" screens (which lists your recent conversations with all of your contacts). Then simply swipe to the right on the conversation history you want to have remove.

My iPhone 4 skype (current verrsion) shows a red 2 saying I have two messages but I cant find them or delete them. I go to the RECENT tab and it is blank with a edit tab that changes nothing. Anyone have a clue. I swipe right/left/up/down but nothing changes.

On my iphone5: 1)- I signed out of Skype. 2)- Signed back in. 3)- Clicked on picture of contact whose messages I wanted deleted. A red window appeared to the right of the picture with the "Delete" legend". 4)- Clicked on the red window and the messages were erased, while the contact remained. PERFECT!

Claudio's is right it does work if you are on the screen with the recent conversation, just swipe on the person, don't open the messages window, this will not delete the contact. Thank you
