Skype might be facing issues from within and afar, but that hasn't stopped their development team from pushing forward. Skype has released a new version of their client, which fixes, among other things, a serious flaw that cause an enormous amount of pagefaults.
They are citing it primarily as a bugfix, and after all the complaints and supposed secrecy about security flaws it is a good thing they finally managed to get something out the door. Whether or not this will have any affect on the company as a whole remains to be seen, but I hope they can get their act together soon. If you are a Skype user, getting the new client is definitely worth it, particularly if you've been having issues with the current release.
