@cheatcat Skype seems to be working fine for me. Also, I'm not even sure what packages you are referring to. There is no libssl nor libcrypt in the official packages or AUR.

I got issues with this now. I need libssl 1.0.0 and libcrypt 1.0.0. I got 1.0.1 versions of those both. If it was a way to include those old versions in skype I would be glad if you could do it.

@zerophase Don't flag it out-of-date. Read the sticky.

@gabriwinter Thank you. Added to optdepends, as per lib32-alsa-plugins below.

I also needed to install libao for microphone to work.

@alexis6307 I haven't used Skype for a while, so I can't confirm your bugs on my system. However, the upstream version of skype (4.3.0.37-*) has been around since June 2014. This current -8 package has been around for two months. You can try reverting to -7, but I suspect that dependencies will cause Skype to fail, which is why it was updated in the first place; read the comments below.

Is there any way to downgrade this version? With the lastest updates there's no way to join into group chats or use the old where you was previously joined.
