The web site blog.officeformac.com posted an announcement this week that new content going forward would be posted on the office.com website; while not necessarily significant, it does suggest reinforcement of the Office suite of software being handled together, and not on a separate timetable, as it had in the past.

Then, this week at the Cebit tradeconvention in Germany, representatives from Microsoft acknowledged development of a new version of Office for the Mac, according to a report from Macworld, summarizing a story from Computerwoche. Reports suggest we should expect to hear more details and a timeline in the next few months from Microsoft.
