We hear you. We love Skype version 7 too. We’re working to build the Skype experience you’ve come to depend on for so long on today’s platforms for today’s user. It would be impossible to bring back the full catalog of features available in previous versions of Skype all at once, our engineering systems just don’t work that way. We are committed to evolving the current Skype experience to match your needs over time. As we release new Skype features, we’ll update this site. You can also follow @Skype and @SkypeInsider on Twitter for the latest news too.
Thank you all for your feedback.

If I'm going over notes with someone on Monday at 2:16 AM, I need to be able to find it a month later. Simple as that. Copying and pasting does NOT show the username, leaving it a grand mess when you transfer it to a word document..and it can only go back several messages, not a day or even a week back. This new version is CRIPPLING. If Skype does not step up on this, other messaging services will have to be used.
We realize moving away from older versions of Skype is an inconvenience and we’re sorry for that. We wouldn’t be moving everyone forward if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. Watch this site for news about features we’re adding to the current version of Skype and reach out to @SkypeSupport on Twitter if you need help getting settled in the new app.
Thanks all for all the comments and votes around this topic.
