Office 2011 SP1 Already Out, Office 2010 SP1 Coming This Summer

Here are a couple of news about the Microsoft-developed Office productivity suite, news that go very well together. The first one is that SP1 (Service Pack 1) for Office for Mac 2011 has been rolled out to the public. If you would like to download the service pack, you can grab it straight from Microsoft here.

Before you go get SP1, perhaps you would like to know what it has to offer. To keep things short, here are the news bits and pieces Office for Mac 2011 SP1 brings to the table:
- Increased stability, performance, and security.
- Improved Outlook syncing support.


Office for Mac 2011 SP1 enables calendar syncing between Outlook for Mac and Apple’s Sync Services. You can sync your Outlook calendar, contacts, notes and tasks with your iPhone, iPad, and any other service or device that supports Sync Services.

Please note that the new version MobileMe calendar (MobileMe will transition to the new calendar service on May 5th), no longer syncs with Mac OS Sync Services. This means that Outlook 2011 SP1 calendars will not sync with MobileMe Calendars even though they sync with Sync Services on the Mac.

“If you sync your iPhone or iPad calendars with Sync Services (ie via iTunes over a cable), your mobile device calendars WILL be synced with Outlook 2011 SP1. If you sync your iPhone or iPad calendars with MobileMe, they will NOT be synced to your Outlook 2011 SP1 calendar, because of the broken link between MobileMe and Sync Services. Hopefully Apple’s changes will not impact very many of you,” explained Microsoft’s Office for Mac Team.

And now here’s the second news: Microsoft is working hard on the Service Pack 1 for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Work on Office 2010 SP1 is expected to be done by summer. Or to put it in other words, Office 2010 SP1 will be released sometime this summer.
