Microsoft has released an update for the Mac OS X version of its Office productivity suite.
Office for Mac 2011 will bring updated versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Messenger and Outlook. Users who purchased copies of Office for Mac 2008 after 1 August will be eligible for a free upgrade to the 2011 release.
The Outlook release will be the first of the communications tool to be ported to Mac OS X systems.
"Office 2011 continues our team's mission to connect Mac users to their counterparts who use Windows," wrote Microsoft Office for Mac general manager Eric Wilfrid in a blog post.
"Office enables users across platforms to work anywhere and anytime to build their ideas into reality."
Microsoft has long touted the Mac versions of Office as sporting interfaces and designs completely separate from the Windows versions of the suite.
In the Office for Mac 2011 release, the company is offering a retooled 'ribbon' interface among other features.
V3.co.uk's Office for Mac 2011 review gave the suite a five-star rating, noting smooth compatibility but marking it down for an occasionally cluttered and awkward interface.
