As reported last week, Microsoft today released the first Service Pack update for Office for Mac 2011, which brings improved security and a number of fixes to patch “vulnerabilities that an attacker can use to overwrite the contents of your computer’s memory with malicious code”. The update is available now on Microsoft’s website.
The SP1 also brings integration with Apple’s Sync Services for calendars, contacts, tasks and mail notes through Outlook. These sync features will work with any iPhone or iPad plugged in a computer and synced with iTunes, but unfortunately Microsoft couldn’t implement MobileMe support for Outlook Calendars as MobileMe will stop using Sync Services in May. However, it should be possible to sync a Google Calendar back to iCal, and then from iCal to Outlook to achieve some sort of online synchronization.
You can find the Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 here.
