Microsoft Office 2011 14.2.4 and 2008 12.3.4

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft has released Office 2011 14.2.4 and Office 2008 12.3.4, with Office 2011 gaining Retina display support. Additionally, version 14.2.4 brings a number of improvements to Outlook, including the display of reminders for calendar events on all calendars (previously, reminders were only displayed in the default account’s calendar). The update also changes the HTML syntax of new signatures to be compatible with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and the latest version of WebKit, improves handling of partially downloaded messages, fixes a crash that occurred when some messages were moved via client-side rules, and more (see the release notes for a complete rundown of changes). However, Microsoft has heard that a “small number of users” have been experiencing difficulty in updating to version 14.2.4, and the company is working with Apple to resolve the problem.

The Office 2008 12.3.4 update gets a fix for an issue that crashed Excel after clicking Insert Object and then clicking to select the Display as Icon check box in the Insert Object dialog box. It also includes unspecified improvements in stability, reliability, and performance. (Free updates as a download from the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 111 MB/218.4 MB)
