office 2011 icons 2Microsoft yesterday released several updates for users of its Office for Mac productivity suites, bringing security and stability improvements to Office 2011, 2008, and 2004, as well as a pair of ancillary updates.

- Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.1.2 Update (108.9 MB): Improvements include security fixes and several stability and reliability improvements for Outlook and Word.

- Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac 12.3.0 Update (333.0 MB) and Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.6.4 Update (13.0 MB): Improvements appear to be limited to security fixes.

Additional details on the security fixes, which address as many as eight vulnerabilities in Excel depending on Office version, are available in a Microsoft security bulletin.

- Open XML File Format Converter for Mac 1.2.0 (45.0 MB) and Microsoft Entourage 2008 for Mac, Web Services Edition (64.0 MB): These updates appear to primarily provide compatibility with the updated Office for Mac versions.

Good to see Microsoft still supporting older software. I wish Apple would do similar at times.

Nice to see an update for Office 2004.

I'd love to see an Intel installer for Office 2008 released for Lion. Can't be that much code given the rest of the entire package is Intel, and that OSX installers are simpler than Windows installers.

Ah.. Software which is only 3 years old will not install on Lion. Pretty poor, really, considering that all they have to do is make a universal installer.
But then again, Microsoft will probably want people to buy 2011.

I wonder why Microsoft office for Mac is still so popular when alternatives like open office are available.

Open Office is crap in comparison. This is a fact.

This'll be the first update for my G4 Mini running 10.3.9 in years. Leave it to MS to keep things nice n' tidy though!

edit: Wow, this is even adding new features. Looks like my mini can remain relevant if I ever need it as more than a jukebox.

Why don't you update it to at least Tiger? Tiger is better than Panther in every conceivable way...
