Microsoft has released the first beta of Office 2007 Service Pack (SP) 1. To refresh your memory, Office 2007 was released to manufacturing (RTM) on November 6, 2006.
The availability of the Office 2007 SP1 Beta has been confirmed by Microsoft officials, though they declined to share any information on what fixes and updates are included in the pack.
The Office team also declined to provide a final release target date for the service pack.
According to a Microsoft spokeswoman:
"We have a long history of securing feedback around future technologies from customer and partners. We have invited a very small number of customers and partners to participate in early testing of future products. We have nothing new to share around timing of future releases."
