Update: Office 2010 Beta build 14.0.4536.1000 has been released for public download.
Update 2: Office 2010 RC (Release Candidate) is now available for download.
I just opened Word 2010 Technical Preview to write a report when the thought about a possible new leak crossed my mind. And a quick visit to one of the prime locations for such underground activities revealed that my gut feeling was actually true â€“ Microsoft Office 2010 Build 4417 has been leaked into the wild.
The source of the leak can easily be traced thanks to the heavily watermarked images. While I couldnâ€™t get my hands on the leak yet (there was no download links), the screen shots I got show some of the new additions into the Office Suite.
Most notably, the Back-Stage view has been enhanced and looks like has pretty much reached in its final form. Plus there is a new Upload Center to store and share your documents online. Iâ€™m not sure if thatâ€™s the Office Web Apps or just the Office Live Workspaces. Other additions I spotted include an improved Activation system and newer icons for all the Applications.
Iâ€™ve added a couple of screenshots below for youâ€™re viewing pleasure. Oh and if you spot something new in the images, please do share that via the comments.
All the images are via WZOR. And sorry I wonâ€™t be providing any download links, so please donâ€™t ask for any. Iâ€™ll have more updates once I try out the new version so make sure you subscribe via the button below.
