Earlier this month, Apple made available OS X Mountain Lion with over 200 new features- today, the Office for Mac team announced that Office for Mac 2011 is now Mountain Lion ready!

In addition, Office 2008 for Mac is also now supporting Mountain Lion.

"We've been working with Apple to ensure a fantastic experience for our users," the team stated. Here are a couple of items for your attention:

  • "Make sure you have Office for Mac's AutoUpdate enabled - some updates will be needed to make the most of the upgrade to Mountain Lion. "Initiate AutoUpdate in any Office for Mac application by going to your toolbar, then selecting "Help" and then "Check for Updates," the team said.
  • Mountain Lion ships with a new feature called "Gatekeeper," that helps protect users by allowing you to choose to only download and install software from known developers, like Microsoft.

    Please note that "due to the Gatekeeper architecture, updates will not run when you download and initiate them on your desktop; instead please use Microsoft AutoUpdate to keep your copies of Office for Mac current," the team informed.
