Microsoft releases first service pack for Office 2010

SP1 arrives as Office 365 pulls out of station

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Microsoft released Office 2010 service pack 1 earlier this week, while it was trying to capture the world's attention with its cloudy Office 365 effort.

The company pushed out a private beta build of the code in November last year to a select bunch of testers through its MS Connect web portal.

Office 2010 SP1 arrives just one year after the original code was shipped to retailers and OEMs.

That's interesting given that a typical service pack release cycle at Redmond towers normally takes around 18 months to two years after the initial software launch.

But then, this package of updates and bug fixes isn't exactly huge.

The 32-bit version of Office 2010 SP1 is 361MB in size, while the 64-bit code is 439MB.

Included in the release is official support for Google's Chrome browser when using Office web apps, while the company's own Internet Explorer 9 now gets Office web apps and SharePoint "Native" love. ®
