The basic functionality still works.
There are so many problems with this release and it's actually quite shocking. Did anybody at Skype even test this once? The two big ones:
1. Everytime I sign into Skype, I get logged out of Facebook in Safari. Every single time, on two different Macs. As somebody who puts his Mac in sleep mode regularly at work, this is a major inconvenience.
2. Although it offers full-screen mode now, a lot of functions don't work in full-screen. And I mean basic functions. Try to access Preferences, and Skype exits full screen. Select a contact's profile picture to see their profile, and Skype exits full screen. Is it limited to these two instances? Absolutely not.
3. When in full-screen mode, I add a tag to a new contact and the whole screen instantly goes grey a la the mission control background pattern. I have to swipe to another app, and then click the Skype icon to even see the app again.
Why was this even released? It seems like it was in Beta for a long time beforehand too. This is barely Alpha quality.
