Occasionally, some users experienced crashes on launch, and others on quit. Thanks to some valuable assistance from users in the Community Forums, we’ve been able to identify the cause of these crashes. This release contains fixes for both of them.
Sometimes you don’t want to be notified of every message in a long-lived conversation, and that’s why Skype for Mac has allowed you to set notifications per-conversation for many years. However, recently users on the Forums reported that these settings weren’t sticking.
