Microsoft has released Office for Mac 2011 to manufacturing. “This means we’ve signed off on final testing and the product is officially getting sent on its way to production and to customers,” wrote Geoff Price of Microsoft’s Mac business unit.
Office for Mac 2011 has undergone 6 different private beta builds. Office for Mac will allow multiple document editing, so users can edit same document at the same time, without getting a lockout notice. It’ll also include document sharing with other Mac and Windows office users, through SharePoint, SkyDrive and web apps.
Microsoft is expected to release Office for Mac 2011 on October 26.
Office for Mac released a joke video featuring a few features that didn’t make the final product. Amongst the “missing features” is an Auto-tune recorder, exploding Excel charts and email alerts in Outlook with a Vuvuzella. Enjoy the video below:
