XML News from Friday, January 18, 2008

Microsoft has released Mac Office 2008 with support for the OfficeOpen XML document format. Other new features include a simplified toolbar; a toolbox for managing formatting, clip art, research, and bibliography palettes; and a publishing layout. However Visual Basic for Applications has been removed in this release. Anyone who needs that will have to stick with the previous release or use Windows. :-( Mac Office 2008 is about $131 depending on where you buy it.
