Microsoft has released Office 2007 service pack 1. But what does it fix? If you go to this page you can download a spreadsheet which lists around 450 fixes. It is a little misleading, since many of the fixes reference pre-existing knowledgebase articles, which I reckon means you may already have the fix. SP1 is still worth it (presuming it works OK) – there are plenty of other issues mentioned.
Of course I went straight to the Outlook 2007 section, as this is the app I have real problems with. This one will be interesting to some readers of this blog:
- POP3 sync is sometimes slow. An issue that contributed to this issue was fixed in SP1.
I believe I have noticed this one too:
- A large number of items may fail to be indexed.
As to whether Outlook 2007 will perform noticeably better after SP1, I am sceptical but will let you know.
As it happens, the top four search keywords for visitors to this blog who come via search engines, for this month, are as follows:
It is similar most months. Hmmm, seems there may be a pattern there.
