Re: Skype 5.9 for Windows hotfix

Thanks Ross.
That seems to have brought the CPU usage back under control again.

Re: Skype 5.9 for Windows hotfix

A new hotfix for Skype has been released: Skype 5.10.0.116

We are rolling out a hotfix over the next few days for multiple Skype clients to address a couple of known issues.

We recommend downloading the updated versions of Skype once they are available.

The affected Skype clients are:

◦Skype 5.10 for Windows

◦Skype 5.8 for Mac

◦Skype 4.0 for Linux

◦Skype 1.2 for Windows Phone

The hotfix addresses an issue that occurs only when a user's Skype client crashes during a Skype IM session, which may in some cases result in the last IM entered or sent prior to the crash being delivered to a different IM contact after the Skype client is rebooted or logged in as a new user. Although we cannot determine precisely how many users may have been affected by this error, we believe the number is small given the very specific circumstances under which the error occurs.

During further investigation, we confirmed that not all Skype products were affected by this error as originally reported. We can assure that users of Skype 5.9 for Windows, Skype 2.8 for Android and Skype 4.0 for IOS have not been affected.

In addition, we have fixed File Sending on the desktop versions of Skype where it was not possible to save files for users who have a hard disk drive in FAT32 format.

Introducing Skype 6.1 for Windows, now with Outlook integration and a visual update to the toolbar. This is an exciting update because the time spent on email by many people is still significant. And if you're like many of us who work at Skype, we spend lots of time toggling between our email and Skype desktop clients. Now it's really convenient to send a Skype instant message, start a free Skype to Skype call, or make a call to any mobile or landline - all within Outlook.
