New screen resolutions supported
We have introduced support for lower screen resolutions used on many popular Android devices, including the HTC Wildfire.
Hardware back key
When sending Skype to background with hardware back key, the Skype user interface process ends, but the library process continues to run in the background. As a result, you'll still be able to receive incoming calls and IMs. This should help reduce Skype's battery consumption while it's in the background.
Signing out now exits Skype
When you sign out from Skype then it now exits the Skype application.
