Office 2007 Service Pack 1 Released today!

Wow this is exciting, Office 2007 SP1 was just released today!  Check it out here:

The 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 1 (SP1)

The OneNote 2007 SP1 update is found in this update so once you update all of Office it will include OneNote as well.  I have been using SP1 for a few weeks now and it has been great, I haven't had any problems with this and I would highly recommend it for all users!

Some notable updates in OneNote:

  • The screen clipping problem where OneNote would grab the wrong IE tab address.
  • OneNote Access Denied errors on SharePoint (also related to this: Access denied in OneNote shared notebooks on SharePoint)
  • Crashing bugs, using Watson information we are able to see what causes the most crashes in OneNote and we fix the bugs that will help the most users
  • And more!

There were no file format changes in OneNote 2007 SP1 and additionally no new features like what you saw in OneNote 2003 SP1, this was just a bug fix service pack.

You can get a more complete description of SP1, including a list of issues that were fixed, in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 936982: Description of the 2007 Microsoft Office suite Service Pack 1.  Also for your other favourite Office applications:

  1. To me, the most impressive part about Office SP1 is that I don’t need it. It has been very stable for me out of the box and nothing about SP1 interests me at all…. and that is great!

  2. It is raining service packs it seems. Microsoft has released The Microsoft Office suite Service Pack

    What about wildcard searching capability???  I can’t believe that feature is not included in this product.  It will only fine words that "begin" with the the letters you type into the search box, and does not catch them if the letters you type are embedded in word(s) within a page.

    That is awful.  Evernote has this feature built-in and I can’t believe M$ would ignore this.

    No, awful is not being able to mix text and ink.
