Office 2007 SP2

The Microsoft Office team have released a great big list of fixes contained in Service Pack 2 for Office 2007 and some of them are great, and look like they’ll fix some issues I’m having 🙂 The full article can be found here and my pick of the fixes is below. (ps SP2 will be out 28th of April 2009-so next week!)

Excel: A chart object model has been added to Word and PowerPoint.

Groove: Synchronization reliability has been improved.


  • Performance in startup, shutdown, view rendering, and folder switch has been improved.
  • Calendar updates, search, and RSS are more reliable.
  • Powerpoint: Resaving of files is faster.

     Server side:

    Excel Services: Improved compatibility with Mozilla Firefox browsers.

    Props to Chris Parkes for his tweet on this 🙂
