MS Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 Released to Manufacturing

Microsoft Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010, and Project 2010 were all released to manufacturing by Microsoft on April 16.

For Outlook users, Office 2010 sports dramatically improved search speed and reliability, support for larger mailboxes, and myriad end-user productivity features. These include quick steps, conversation cleanup, the ability to ignore conversations, and the ability to reply to email threads in one click using instant messaging. For the first time, Outlook users can now communicate via text (SMS) messages with users of most mobile phone devices.

Multinational users will enjoy the translation functionality that is built into all Office applications, with both local and remote Web-service-based translation capabilities.

The familiar ribbon bar remains, as do popular features such as save as PDF, support for multiple calendars, sophisticated rule support, and task integration.

This will be the first release to be accompanied with an online version of Office – keep an eye on Microsoft’s Office Online Web site for the new Office 2010 applications to appear. This will become a compelling story for small businesses looking for an alternative to Google Apps.

Congratulations to the Office team on shipping a stellar release!
