Skype 5.9 for Windows

We have just released a new version of Skype for Windows, which is a small update that incorporates the following improvements:

A new confirmation message when sending a contact to a group conversation
A new Hotkey for taking snapshots during video calls
Improved non-standard international phone number recognition for Australian users
The ability to opt-out from silent updates

Start downloading Skype 5.9 for Windows now and let us know what you think on our Support Network. Or in case you notice any issues, then please report them to our public issue tracker.

More details on the improvements:

Added a confirmation message when sending a contact to a group conversation
We have introduced a confirmation message when a user tries to drag and drop a contact into a group conversation.

Hotkey for taking snapshots during video calls
Based on user requests, we have introduced a hotkey to make an instant snapshot of a video call in progress. You can define your own hotkey in the advanced options panel (Tools>Options>Advanced>Hotkeys).

Improved non-standard international phone number recognition for Australian users
Australian users can now more easily make international calls by using 011 as an international prefix in Australia.

Ability to opt-out from silent updates
While we highly recommended keeping automatic updates turned on, there are some client environments where it's not an option. For these clients, we have introduced an option to disable the automatic updating of Skype. If you have disabled automatic updates, you will still see upgrade notifications and requests to upgrade to the latest Skype client.

Skype 5.9.0.114 for Windows has following issues resolved from previous release:
