Microsoft has released a new version of Skype for Windows Phone 8 . Despite the passage of the version 126.96.36.199 from version 188.8.131.523, it seems that the current release remains a some kind of preview release, since in fact there are no apparent novelty, apart from a new setting for notifications.
No official changelog has been released, but by what we learn from our colleagues from wpcentral it seems that with this new version has been eliminated, perhaps momentarily, the contact will sync with those contacts in the Hub, but most have been corrected bugs of the previous version that caused malfunctions.
In this description on the Store, Microsoft points out that in this version of Skype some features are under development and may not work as expected. This includes, without limitation: reliability of calls, call alerts, chat and stay in line outside of the app. In addition, it is noted that as a preview release the user experience is not to be understood as the final one.
Such statements leave a little surprise, especially when you consider that, paradoxically, on other competing platforms the application works better and offers more features. Hopefully Microsoft will release a complete and very functional as soon as possible not to disappoint its users.
