Microsoft Office 2011 14.5.6

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Microsoft has issued version 14.5.6 of its Office 2011 [1] suite to correct an Exchange syncing issue that bedeviled users who had migrated to OS X 10.11 El Capitan. In particular, a bug with Outlook caused unending hangs, making it impossible to download new email when running El Capitan. While Office 2011 has received a fix, Office 2016 users are still awaiting relief (and are being vocal about it in this Microsoft Community thread [2]) from repeated crashes suffered not just by Outlook but also by Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (as noted by this Computerworld article [3]). (Free update from the Microsoft Download Center [4] or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 113 MB, release notes [5], 10.5.8+)
