SP2 released to web for download today. We have a great KB article that contains links to all the downloads and description KB’s for each package. Check it out here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968170.
SP2 contains a lot of great enhancements and fixes to Office 2007. Here are a few of them:
- Support for Open Document Format (ODF)
- Built in support for XPS and PDF (Add-in no longer required)
- Improved performance and responsiveness in Outlook
- SP2 can be uninstalled
The last bullet will be the topic of another post very soon. For the first time in Office history we can uninstall a service pack without having to remove and reinstall everything. This is done with a tool called “Microsoft Service Pack Uninstall Tool for the 2007 Microsoft Office suite”, or OARPMAN for short. More on this soon!
