Microsoft Office 2007 SP2 leaks

Microsoft is currently working on SP2 for Office 2007 and could be ready to release a final version as early as this month.

Today an early copy has leaked to BitTorrent according to Windows Vista Magazine.

The file weighs in at 287.14 MB and is named office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe. It's not clear whether the leaked copy is a beta, RC or final version of SP2 but the EULA states "012.0_B2TR_PRE.0_BTA_EN" meaning it it's likely to be a test version. The build number is 12.0.6416.1000, compared to Microsoft Office 2007 SP1 which has the build version of 12.0.6331.5000.

SP2 will support Open Document Format (ODF), XML Paper Specification (XPS) and Portable Document Format (PDF).

Read this Softpedia.com article about the "leaked" Office 2007 SP2 build:

I totally agree with lee26 and boogerjones. This "leaked" SP2 build is a Beta and NOT the final release. AVOID getting it, folks! Wait for the REAL THING to be posted at Office Update/Microsoft Update or at the Microsoft Download Center, which will have a slightly newer build number than the "leaked" edition.

I sense a delay in the actual release of Office 2007 SP2.

Sweet, native support for PDF/XPS. Can't wait. <3
Not being able to edit PDF files is annoying to me :(

The PDF format is for distribution. It wasn't designed for editing. However, some basic stamping, watermarking, pagination for existing PDF files would be nice. But let's face it: Microsoft ain't gonna provide those features. I'm just hoping they'll support newer formats with improved encryption.

Sorry to tell you people but it's the Beta that was released back in December. The build string is exactly the same and EULA says it's pre-lease software. If you got the Beta back in December don't bother getting this.

"Microsoft is currently working on SP2 for Office 2007 and could be ready to release a final version as early as Q1 2009."

Didn't Q1 end on March 31?

It's possible they're fiscal quarter and the calendar quarter are different. Some companies Q1 actually starts in July.

It's like Q2 now already...

It's like an April Fool's joke. WTH, an Office Service Pack (BETA) being leaked to the Internet... Oh my, how low can you go?
I think I'll manage to contain myself until the RTM version is on the MS website... Or a couple more months thereafter - lol...

Did this 3 times now and the password doesn't work any of the times. Not sure what i am doing wrong but thank you very much for posting this.

Can't wait. Like office 2007 very much and interested to know what other enhancements and fixes are coming.
