Office 2007 SP2 is just around the corner. One of the many improvements is support for Internet Explorer 8. The Office team blog announced today that the Office SP2 and the documentation will ship on April 28th.

The post includes a long list of features and improvements for both the server apps such as SharePoint and the client apps like Word and Excel. It is also good to hear that they will be bringing back the spreadsheet that enumerates all of the bugs that were fixed.

It is nice to see the Office sustained engineering team hit their ship target dates. So often only the slips are reported. Good job!
