Microsoft announces release date for new Office 2008 Mac productivity package
Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac will be available in the US from 15 January, with other markets to follow in the first quarter, said Microsoft.
Office 2008 for Mac, an upgrade from the 2004 edition, includes Microsoft Office Word 2008, Microsoft Office Excel 2008, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2008 and Microsoft Office Entourage 2008.
A new combination for Mac users is Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition, which features the Office 2008 applications together with the Microsoft Expression Media digital asset management system.
Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition is geared toward professional users who need Microsoft Exchange Server support and Automator tools, and who are looking for one product to meet their productivity and digital asset management needs.
Completing the product line-up is Office 2008 for Mac Home and Student Edition, a lower priced version at £75 for users with basic productivity needs.
All versions of Office 2008 for Mac support the new Open XML file format - which recently failed to gain ISO accreditation.
