Recently I got an email with the message below. Since I don't have Skype installed on my desktop other than via Miranda, Id assume that this was a generic message but wanted to make sure that Miranda's Skype plugin wouldnt be affected by whatever happens on March 1st / or that if it might be that someone knew about it before it happened.
"Update Skype to keep staying in touch
The time has come. From March 1, you may no longer be able to sign into the version of Skype on your computer. To keep talking with your family and friends, please update to the latest version. It only takes a few minutes and all your contacts and conversations will be right there when you sign in."
