Microsoft releases Office 2010 SP2 public beta

Microsoft has released a public beta of Office 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2) on Monday. This is the first major update to the suite in almost two years.

In addition to Office 2010 SP2, the download includes the code necessary to upgrade several server products, such as SharePoint 2010 and Office Web Apps 2010.

Office 2010 SP2 includes the usual roll-up of past security and hotfix patches, as well as "previously unreleased fixes that were made specifically for this service pack," Microsoft said in an accompanying document. Those range from stability, performance, and security fixes to compatibility updates for Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, and Internet Explorer 10 (IE10).

The preview of Office 2010 SP2 can be downloaded from Microsoft's Connect website.

Although Microsoft has decided to scrap service packs for Windows -- Windows 7, for example, is not expected to receive a follow-up to 2011's SP1 -- Monday's announcement indicates that they're still part of the Office release cycle.
