Skype for Windows

A few days ago was released a new version of Skype for Windows, which has the improvements of a general nature. In the main, the changes of the 5.2 version affect the calls work. Modified call phones dialogue, improved user interaction on running out of credit, the call button with drop-down menu — this and some others things has been reworked to improve Skype experience. Besides that the offline/invisible icon has been replaced to a hollow one.
