Shortly after Apple announced that Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion has been rolled out to the Mac App Store, Microsoft announced that its Office for Mac 2011 productivity suite is ready for the 9th major release of Apple’s operating system. The Office for Mac Team explained that it worked closely with Apple to ensure that all customers have a “fantastic experience” with Office for Mac 2011 on Mountain Lion.

The Office for Mac Team wanted to point out a couple of items that may be worth your attention:
  • 1 – Since some updates will be needed to make the most of the upgrade to Mountaion Lion, you should enable AutoUpdate in Office for Mac 2011. You can do that from Help -> Check for Updates.
  • 2 – Mountaion Lion introduces a Gatekeeper, a security feature that makes downloading software from the Internet safer. Updates will not run when you download and initiate, due to the Gatekeeper architecture. The Office for Mac team says you should use Microsoft AutoUpdate to keep your copies of Office for Mac current.

The aforementioned Gatekeeper is just one of the many new features Mountain Lion has to offer. As the Cupertino-based company explained, Mac OS X 10.8 comes with more than 200 new features. Some of the new features are iCloud integration, a new Notification Center, dictation built into the OS, and system-wide sharing.


"People are going to love the new features in Mountain Lion and how easy it is to download and install from the Mac App Store," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "With iCloud integration, Mountain Lion is even easier to set up, and your important information stays up to date across all your devices so you can keep editing documents, taking notes, creating reminders, and continue conversations whether you started on a Mac, iPhone or iPad."

Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is available for purchase in the Mac App Store here.
