Update for Mac office 2008

Wednesday, March 12, 2008


Microsoft Corp. patched the latest version of Office for Mac yesterday to fix more than two-dozen problems, including a security snafu revealed just days after the suite was launched in mid-January.

Dubbed Office 2008 for Mac 12.0.1, the update patches three vulnerabilities in Excel, the suite's spreadsheet application, that were noted yesterday when Microsoft rolled out its usual monthly security fixes. But the update also addresses a slew of other bugs and quirks, including several that went public almost immediately after Office 2008 debuted on Jan. 15.

Microsoft also claimed that 12.0.1 includes numerous performance, stability and reliability improvements -- it called out 24 items in a bullet list -- in all four of the applications that make up the suite: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Entourage.

But on Microsoft's Office support forums, some users complained that they were having a tough time getting the update installed. For several users, the Microsoft-built Office updating tool -- which was itself updated only recently -- wouldn't show them 12.0.1.

The Office 2008 for Mac 12.0.1 update can be downloaded from Microsoft's Mac-specific Web site.
