As part of the Exchange 2010 announcement today: Microsoft Unveils Exchange 2010 With Public Beta we also announced a timeline for the next version of Office products (see First in Wave and Availability sections):
- Microsoft Office 2010
- Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010
- Microsoft Visio 2010
- Microsoft Project 2010
Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, Microsoft Visio 2010 and Microsoft Project 2010 are scheduled to enter technical preview in the third quarter of 2009 and release to manufacturing in the first half of 2010.
Note the name change to Project; the “Office” piece was removed (so we will ship a Microsoft Project Professional 2010, Microsoft Project Server 2010, for instance). More information from the SharePoint team on the new name change here.
To learn all about Project 2010, I encourage everyone to attend Microsoft Project Conference 2009 in September.
