This release fixes an issue on Ubuntu 17.10 (32 bit only I believe) where Ghetto Skype would not start.

Other changes:

  • Tray icon show number of messages unread minus those from threads that are muted
  • Fixed last message in an inactive thread when using Arc Darker theme where there was black text on black background in subtitle.
  • Fixed bug in electron-builder where electron apps did not add executable. ghetto-skype should be accessible now.
  • Fixed annoying issue where contact box would be unfocused sometimes
  • Added MAC shortcut support for copy, paste, undo, redo, etc
  • Updated electron to latest

  • Added Spell Check
  • Added Arc Darker theme and made it easier to make your own themes
  • Added some logic to focus the chat input when alt+tabbing or focusing window
  • Marks currently viewed thread to read when focusing window
  • Added ability to intercept keys. One example of this is using ctrl+enter for sending messages and enter for new line. This can be set in settings. In the future I hope to support VIM keys, code snippets and encryption as well. @BlackCapCoder actually did some of this on his fork, pretty neat!
  • Refactored the code to try to clean it up and support native dependencies (like spell check)... may fix a few issues some of you had
  • Removed some settings like Mute Audio because Web Skype has this as an option now
  • New build process has the ability to make snap packages or appimage. I haven't forgot about OBS, that's next on my list :)

  • Sums thread count of unread messages rather than parsing notification count out of the title. Web Skype has a bug with the title, so by doing it this way, the tray icon doesn't remain red forever.
  • If using the setting to open Ghetto Skype when you receive messages, there were some fixes and improvements to this setting.
  • If you minimize the main window and your desktop environment supports flashing in the window bar (like Cinnamon for instance) it will now flash when you have unread messages.
  • Web Skype has a bug where you can't send/recieve messages after a while, but Ghetto Skype can now assist by refreshing the page to resolve this issue.
  • If using the native image viewer setting and for some odd reason you're not on Linux, it now works on Windows/Mac. It also seems to reduce the time it takes to open the image viewer.
  • Grouped online status from tray menu into a submenu
  • Fixed zoom
  • Improvements to dark theme
