The new Office - Partner update on licensing
Last week, the Office engineering team signed off on the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build. This milestone means the coding and testing phase of the project is complete and we are now focused on releasing the new Office via multiple distribution channels to our consumer and business customers.
This is the most ambitious release of Office we've ever done. It spans the full family of Office applications, servers and cloud services. The new Office has a fresh, touch friendly design that works beautifully on Windows 8 and unlocks modern scenarios in social, reading, note-taking, meetings and communications. We are proud to achieve this milestone and are eager to deliver this exciting release to our customers and partners.
The new Office brings a ton of new functionalities and solutions to our customers. Besides the changes in the product, there is also some great changes from a licensing perspective. To learn more about this, I encourage you to check out the new online Office licensing webcasts.
