[quote name='http://redmondmag.com/news/article.asp?editorialsid=7483']'Ultimate' Edition Coming for Office 2007

May 30, 2006 • by Stuart J. Johnston

Just as with Windows Vista Ultimate edition, Microsoft is planning an "Ultimate" edition of Office System 2007.

The revelation came in a single slide accompanying Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates' keynote at the company's annual Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) last week.

Steven Bink, proprietor of Bink.nu and a Microsoft watcher in Amsterdam, noted the addition on his Microsoft news site, and a brief media feeding frenzy fleshed out the story. (That slide has apparently since been excised from the slide presentation.)

India-based tech news and buyers' guide site TechTree reported that the new retail and OEM SKU will contain almost all the applications available in the various versions of Office 2007, including the Groove collaboration client. It is set to cost $679.

Microsoft confirmed it is indeed planning an Ultimate edition of Office 2007 as well as the reported price.

"Based on customer feedback received, we understand that some people working at home need to have access to the full line-up of 2007 Microsoft Office applications so they can create, find, manage and share information across boundaries using the toolset they're familiar with at the office," says a prepared statement provided by the company.

Microsoft introduced the Ultimate Edition branding when it announced the packaging for Windows Vista. However, when it originally announced its Office 2007 packaging, it did not mention an Ultimate version.

There is a disagreement with Adobe about the create PDF option in Office 2007, so it could be held up or released with the option

Doubtful they will wait Vista is a whole different kettle of fish, anyone who has used the beta will know that office 2007 is about as close to a finished product a beta can get, seemingly apart from outlook everything is incredibly stable even trying to crash it is difficult and ive yet to manage it. I dont use outlook anyway Thunderbird is better. Office 2007 is a very good product definately what was needed by MS to fight off OO.

Adobe are being a bit annoying PDF support is something people have wanted for such a long time in office and acrobat sucks big time.

Outlook 2007 Tool: Security Hash Generator

In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, you can configure security options by using new Group Policy settings. These settings were previously configurable by customizing the Exchange Security Form and publishing the form to an Microsoft Exchange Server public folder.

If you want to establish trusted add-ins for Outlook by using Group Policy as part of the Outlook 2007 security options feature, you first run a small program to generate the hash key required when setting the policy. The new hash generator program is necessary because the hash value previously created by the Exchange Server security form now must be created manually and then included in the trusted add-ins Group Policy setting. This download includes the files required to run the hash generator program and a Readme document with links to more information about using the new Group Policy settings.
