officelogoEarlier this week, we noted that Microsoft had pulled its Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 2 from Microsoft AutoUpdate after users reported issues with Outlook database corruption. While the issues could be fixed and the update remained available for those looking to manually rebuild their databases and install the software, Microsoft opted to remove SP2 from AutoUpdate in order to protect those users who were unaware of the potential issues with the update.

Microsoft today announced that it has released an update to SP2, known as Microsoft Office 2011 14.2.1.

This update is primarily preventative and targets those who have not yet installed SP2; however, whether you have or have not installed SP2, please run this update to bring your installation of Microsoft Office:Mac 2011 to the latest version.

The downloads weighs in at 110 MB and requires a minimum of Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 (14.1.0).

Every time a Micro$haft product touches a Mac it screws something up. Silverlight anybody?

"Micro$haft"? Really?

I didn't think they allowed kids to go on the internet during school hours these days.

Do I use MS Office on the Mac? No. Am I an insane fanboy who thinks it's the worst thing since the Hindenberg? Also no.

Offic£ for Mac is a joke (it's not very good for Windows either). iWork suite is all you need for the best productivity experience on any platform. I cringe whenever I see a "Mac person" using Micro$oft Offic£ applications on their Mac.

Nothing about your post is accurate.

Good thing Apple has never made a mistake or you'd look like a moron.

You are probably just trolling for kicks, but:

Silverlight blows flash out of the water - really, it is great.

The most recent iteration of Office is quite good too, much better than the last full release. My copy on a MBP 13" early 2011 with lion has been quite stable, and while I dont have any use for outlook I've been using excel, powerpoint and word quite extensively - large 1mb files full of tables, graphs, figures, and zotero reference manager fields.
