Microsoft have released the Office 2004 for Mac service pack 2.

Over on the precursor for Windows Vista / Longhorn (aka Mac OS X) there is a new update. I expect most people will get this update via the Microsoft update service for Mac but if not you can open any of the Office 2004 apps and select Help | Check for updates.

You can download the update direct from this Microsoft website. Only English and Japanese versions are available at this stage.

According to Microsoft the update “provides expanded support for Microsoft Exchange Server accounts, performance improvements, security enhancements, and increased stability for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage for Office 2004. This service pack also includes all of the improvements released in Office 2004 Service Pack 1 (11.1.0), Office 2004 11.1.1 Security Update, and international proofing tools updates.”

It seems most of the updates are focused on Entourage 2004 – the Mac equivalent of Outlook.

After applying your Office 2004 for Mac programs will show version 11.2.0
