Skype 5.3.9.1093

Send Article to a Friend

Skype has released version 5.3.9.1093 of its popular video- and audio-telephony client for Mac OS X. As the very minor version number increase from 5.3.0.1074 suggests, this is purely a hotfix that addresses an occasional crash during video calls, as well as a problem with the Norwegian localization that can lead to the app freezing. If Skype’s built in auto-update feature doesn’t see the update, you can download from the company’s blog. (Free, 22.3 MB)

6 AM EST and it has auto-updated just fine here.
It fixes " a problem with the Norwegian localization that can lead to the app freezing."?
This IS a Tidbits joke, isn't it? Cute!

No, but it was such an amusing thought that the Norwegian localization had problems that we couldn't resist calling it out.

I suspect it's pining for the fjords.

Is there any reason to upgrade from the 2.8.0.851, or is the older interface still better?

If 2.8 is still working for you, no, not really. I suspect at some point it will stop being able to connect properly with newer versions.
