Microsoft releases Service Pack 1 for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 today. At Tech-ED 2011 US, the company confirmed that Office 2010 SP1 is right on track for general availability next month by end of June.
Microsoft is also releasing Office 365 alongside with Office 2010 SP1. Service Pack 1 for Office 2010 is available on Download Center and no sooner than 90 days after release, will be made available as an Automatic Update.
It’s also important to note, that it will be a collection (cumulative update) of all previously released patches and updates. Therefore it will not bring any new features.
