Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 has been released to manufacturers. This means that the final testing stages have been completed and the product is ready to be sent to production and then to customers.
The changes in this release, which Microsoft started developing two and a half years ago, include Outlook for Mac, a new user interface, and major collaboration upgrades including everywhere access, full co-authoring and new connections to Microsoft services such as the Office Web Apps, SharePoint and SkyDrive.
New tools have also been added to easily produce professional documents and improvements have been made to Visual Basic.
Geoff Price, product unit manager, MacBU, said in a
poston the Office for Mac blog: “We started two and a half years ago with some big goals to deliver major improvements customers have requested as well as new stuff we were dreaming up, and to release faster than we had before.”
“We also made a big commitment to invest heavily in ‘the basics’ – fundamentals of software quality including design polish and finish, consistency and usability, and particularly performance and responsiveness, and to re-engineer our internal development processes around those goals. And we’re releasing the bits on the exact day we planned,” added Price.
