Microsoft Releases Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Office 2007
Microsoft has released a service pack for the 2007 Microsoft Office suites. This article contains information about how to obtain the service pack and about how to obtain a list of issues that are fixed by the service pack. Additionally, this article contains information about the issues that you may experience when you install the service pack and about how to determine whether the service pack is installed.
You can wait for Microsoft to push this via automated updates or install it via a direct download. In my informal testing, Outlook 2007 is much faster and doesn’t lock up while receiving mail messages.
According to the official MSDN blog, WSS 3.0 SP1 and SharePoint Server 2007 SP1 should be coming out soon as well.
Update: There have been some reports that Microsoft is pushing the update out via Auto-updates even though they said they wouldn’t.
