Microsoft releases Office 2007 service pack to improve stability and performance

Software giant Microsoft has released its very first service pack for Office 2007, which focuses on improvements to stability and performance.

"These enhancements span the software applications and servers that home and office workers use each day and will make the 2007 Office system an even more robust and effective productivity tool," stated Reed Shaffner, product manager for Office on Microsoft's official website. "In essence, SP1 targets the issues that customers told us mattered to them most."

Shaffner went on to say, "People were generally happy with the tools we've offered in Office 2007. You're not going to hear about a ton of new features."

In addition to stability and speed tweaks, SP1 also aims to make the server components of Office 2007 compatible with the upcoming Windows Server 2008 update.

Service Pack 1 is available for download for free from here . This update will also be available via Windows' Automatic Update service in three to six months, Microsoft officials revealed.
