Folks at 9to5Mac have got hold of a nice bit of information with respect to the launch of the new Microsoft Office 2011 package for Mac. According to details posted on Amazon, the new software should begin shipping from October 26th this year.
This is the first time a specific date for the new product has been available. Earlier this year, the company had officially announced the price of the Office for Mac 2011 edition and had indicated that the software will be available in October. The latest version of the software is expected to be much closer to the Windows version and is expected to reinstate support for Visual Basic applications that were dropped in the 2008 edition. Office 2011 for Mac is also expected to bring improved support for Exchange.
Amazon has put up all three editions, namely Student, Professional and Home up for sale on their website.
