Office 2007

Recently, Microsoft rolled out the first release candidate version of Windows XP Service Pack 3 to some beta testers, and is now planning to roll out Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista next week.

And with all these, guess what? Microsoft is also going to release the first service pack for Office 2007. Amazing, isn’t it? Microsoft didn’t left out its remaining flagship product. Initially, it was slated for an early 2008 release with Vista SP1, but now it will be available to public for download on December 11 through Microsoft Download Center!

This will be served as a critical update for Office 2007. Office 2007 SP1 will bring some significant stability and performance improvements to the applications, plus improve their product’s reliability and security.

By the way, Office 2007 SP1 will not be released for Automatic Updates. Actually, it will, but not so soon. John Rajunas, Microsoft Account Technology Specialist, said:

The use of Automatic Update (AU) Deployment has been a concern we have heard from many customers in recent months. Because of this, the 2007 Office System SP1 will not be released to AU immediately. Instead, the Microsoft Office System team will provide guidance as to a date at which we will begin throttling up so that you have time to educate yourself on what is in SP1 and determine the best method for you to deploy it in your environment

Excited? :D Do tell me what you think of this!
