  1. This was not really a big deal. They fix some bugs and made some minor improvements. The only part of this update that I cared about was the ability to synch Outlook calender( http://www.softwarecrew.com/2011/04/microsoft-releases-office-for-mac-2011-service-pack-1/ ), which before I had to use a third party program to do so(calenderbar).
