Office X Updated Slightly

Office X Updated Slightly -- Lost temporarily in the news of the recent update to Microsoft Office 2004 (see "Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac Service Pack 1 Squishes Bugs" in TidBITS-751) was the fact that Microsoft also updated the older Office X on 13-Oct-04. The improvements in the Microsoft Office v.X for Mac Security Update (10.1.6) include proper functioning of Word X's AutoRecover when FileVault is enabled (not that we recommend FileVault in most situations), and a fix to a bug that caused Entourage X to stop responding when certain corrupted email messages were received with the Junk Mail Filter enabled. Word X, Excel X, and PowerPoint X all receive an added level of security that affects macros that open other macro-containing Office documents. It's a 38.4 MB download. [ACE]
