I immediately noticed a difference with the previous version 188.8.131.52, see the pictures below.
Although in both cases contacts are sorted according to their online status, in the new version two categories are mixed up:
- Online contacts
- Contacts with call forwarding
It could of course be a programming mistake, but the combination of changing the colour AND the sorting makes me think this is deliberate. Some inattentive persons will think their contact is online, and will place the call, and … the contact person will pay a SkypeOut communication without the caller noticing!
Not a problem for the caller of course, although disturbing somebody who isn’t online isn’t always very advisable.
But sure this could generate some supplementary income for Skype.
I still hope this is a mistake, and that they will correct this. I believe the sorting should indeed be according the “online Status”.
