The Mac BU said it would provide Office for Mac users with the ability to take advantage of benefits of the new file format and container technology, which will include easier recovery of corrupted documents, improved security and smaller file sizes. The Mac BU will support the new file formats and work to enable forward compatibility with future Office releases.
