Now Available: Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 2 (Updated)

From Microsoft:

Today Microsoft is releasing Service Pack 2 for the 2007 Microsoft Office system. This service pack delivers significant stability, performance and interoperability improvements for customers, including additional file format support, and offers enhancements for Microsoft Office Outlook, such as improved calendaring reliability and general performance.  To download Office 2007 SP2, visit the Microsoft web site.  Please note that SP2 will be available for download starting around 11 a.m. PDT.

(It's available now, I just grabbed it.)

The enhancements in SP2 span across the servers and software applications that home and office workers rely on daily and make the 2007 Office system an even more effective productivity tool.  Service Pack 2 also makes interoperating with Office easier for developers by providing tools and resources to make the development process shorter and more cost effective.
