Earlier this month we were announcing that by the 28th of April, Microsoft will release the second service pack for the Office 2007 suite. True to its word, the Redmond based software giant has indeed made Office 2007 SP2 (a significant stability, performance and interoperability upgrade) available for download. Microsoft is advising all Office 2007 users to download the service pack and enjoy the enhanced functionality it has to offer.

“This release builds on customer feedback and offers enhanced stability for Outlook, calendaring reliability, and many more improvements to applications that run on both PCs and servers. Microsoft has also been working hard to build interoperability into its products across the board, and so Office now also includes additional file-format support, which makes it much easier for customers to work with different file formats in the same application, explained Group Program Manager, Office Sustained Engineering, Jane Liles.

Among the most notable changes that Jane Liles brought up are Office SP2’s improved performance and stability, better charting functionality in Excel, more control over how SmartArt graphics look, and last but not least, enhcaned file-format support. Alongside a wide range of file-formants that Office 2007 already provides support for, Service Pack 2 adds built-in support for Open XML, ODF and PDF. With PDF support, you can use Office 2007 SP2 as an alternative to open PDF files, since Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader is once again plagued by security problems (details here).

In related MS Office news, Office 14 has been officially branded as Office 2010 and will be released onto the market some time next year. Microsoft did not provide an exact release date, it just stated that Office 2010 will definitely ship in 2010 (details here).
