Office 2004/2008 updates

Microsoft has released updates for the two most recent editions of its Office for Mac suite, 2004 and 2008. Office 2008 12.1.3 makes a variety of changes, most notably several reliability fixes. Apps in the suite should no longer close spontaneously, and documents with PDF images should not lose or relocate the images when opened within Windows. Other changes include a fix to a malware threat, and a host of tweaks to each individual program. Entourage, for instance, should no longer duplicate calendar events within Outlook 2007 or Outlook Web Access. The patch is a 154.4MB download.

Office 2004 11.5.2 is a considerably smaller download at 13MB, but is said to eliminate several malware vulnerabilities. Reliability updates have been applied only to Excel, and address inaccurate results from the "SUMIF ()" function, as well as data being lost when saving an XLS document to a network volume, specifically after turning on the "always create backup" feature.

    Fixed spaces bug

    Now if I have Word open and switch spaces, it doesn't do weird things with my pallet. About time!
