O.P. Skype to retire Desktop API support by end of 2013
http://www.neowin.net/news/skype-to-retire-deskto...ort-by-end-of-2013

quote:
Skype, and its parent company Microsoft, will be retiring its older Desktop API for third party developers by the end of the year. That's according to an email that was sent to many of those developers this week by Chris Andrews, the current head of Microsoft's Skype Developer Program.

According to the email, posted at GigaOM, Skype will shut down the App Directory in September; in addition, any chat functionality that uses the Desktop API will also stop working by that date. Skype will also inform users with messaging in Skype for Desktop of these changes around in that same time period. Full support for the Desktop API will stop at the end of 2013.


Let's see what will become of MsgPlus Skype :zippy:

Wow. What a shitty turn of events for Yuna.

Market.com spends millions of dollars to purchase rights to Yuna Software.

Yuna releases Plus! for Skype

Nothing? Skype is the only desktop chat platform and, letís be fair, itís used by businesses and families these days. People are chatting through iMessage, BBM, WhatsApp, and Facebook.
