in the new skype there is no visual notification anymore (the yellow one for instance). We need it back.

Notification of new messages is no longer intuitive on the desktop. Screen space is at a premium, and requiring the Skype window be open to know if you have new messages is unreasonable. This one feature change is making my company look into an alternative to Skype.
Removing this feature has greatly impacted my workflow... please bring back the yellow dot when Skype icon is pinned to the task bar or minimized. When I leave and get back to the PC, I want to be able to see if someone has contacted me without opening Skype window, and checking every time.
