Microsoft has updated Skype for Linux.
The new version 1.7 Alpha is billed as offering three major enhancements, namely:
- Fixed standard behaviour of unread messages - when opening chat with unread messages, the view will focus on the first unread message. As you scroll, messages will be marked as read.
- New grid layout of the group calls
- Fix for application reconnect after it was suspended for longer time
Downloads of the new Alpha are apparently available here, we think. Microsoft's Skype for Linux site is labyrinthine and lacks a neat “download here” button we can find. ®
