Skype for Linux alpha 1.7 released

A new version (v1.7) of Skype for Linux alpha was released yesterday. This release doesn’t contain many new features. Here’s what’s new:

  • 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
