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.
