Microsoft releases Office 2008 for Mac SP2

Today Microsoft announced the availability of Office 2008 for Mac Service Pack 2. SP2 delivers highly requested features throughout the suite as well as a new tool, Document Connection, which helps improve access and browsing to documents on SharePoint and Office Live Workspace.

"There's never been a better time to try Office 2008 for Mac — with SP2 we are not only delivering on top customer requests midcycle, but also taking a first step in bringing Microsoft software plus services to Mac users," said Mike Tedesco, senior product manager for MacBU at Microsoft. "This connection unlocks the door for Mac users to Microsoft services for easier collaboration and file sharing with colleagues, customers and classmates."
What's new:

  • Custom Path Animation, adds the ability to author motion-patch animations. Users previously could only play back motion paths.
  • Default Theme lets users define their default theme, including fonts, color scheme, and slide layouts.
  • Increased launch and scroll speeds in Word and Excel 2008 for Mac
  • Ability to upload to Office Live Workspace.

The download will go live today at 10:00 A.M. PDT, and will be available to download here or via Microsoft AutoUpdate.
