Still using Office 2010? SP2 is here

When I left IT little more than a year ago, my company still rocked Office 2007. Of course, computers were still running Windows XP and web browsers had only recently migrated from Internet Explorer 6 to IE 7. Now, with the addition of SP2 to Office 2010 business may be ready to make the move onto this platform.

"Today, we released Service Pack 2 (SP2) for the Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 set of products.  SP2 provides key updates and fixes across our servers, services and applications including security, stability, and performance enhancements and provides better compatibility with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013", says Microsoft's Chris Schneider.

The SP2 release is designed to improve the compatibility between the Office and SharePoint 2010 products and Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013. The SP1 update rolled out back in June 2011, so this has been in the works for sometime now.

Download links for all SP2 offerings are available over on TechNet. "After a 90-day period, SP2 will be offered as an automatic update through Microsoft Update. Customers using the Office Click-to-Run technology will have SP2 streamed to them beginning in August" Microsoft proclaims.
