As previously reported by BetaNews, Microsoft will issue a Technical Refresh Build of Office 2007 Beta 1 next week. The release includes minor fixes and modifications to the suite’s user interface, along with bringing back support for Windows Vista. Office 2007 Beta 1 does not function on the Vista February CTP.
The beta refresh will only be available to Beta 1 testers; however, Microsoft may open the program up when Beta 2 arrives this spring. Microsoft promises the refresh will bring “a more stable, reliable experience overall.” Office 2007 is a major departure from past releases, dropping toolbar buttons for “ribbons” offering features specific to the current task.
