Skype for Mac Version 6.15 – Now Even More Stable (Thanks to YOU!)

Today we’ve released Skype for Mac, version 6.15. As with all our recent releases, we’ve focused on improving user experience and stability.

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. We’re happy to let you know this is no longer the case – this bug is fixed, and you can again use “Notification Settings…” from the “Conversations” menu to set notification keywords, etc.

In the release of Skype for Mac version 6.14, we highlighted two known issues: animated emoticons using too much CPU, and some users experiencing crashes when screen sharing on MacBook Pros. In 6.15 we have fixed the animated emoticons issue, and MacBook Pros users should update to Mac OS X 10.9.2 to prevent crashes when screen sharing.

We hope you enjoy this update. Download Skype for Mac version 6.15 today, and let us know what you think. To share your feedback or to get the latest news and tips, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join us on the Skype Community.

  1. Skype 6.3 is the last version that can be installed in Mac OS X 10.5.8, but it doesn’t allow log in, and asks for an update. But any version above Skype 6.3 can’t be installed.
