Service Pack 2 for Office 2010 Family to Be Released

If you are still relying on Office 2010 and have been waiting patiently for the updates to exit beta testing, that time is now here. Microsoft is ready to release the Office 2010 SP2 upgrade which will begin automatically next month to some users and available to the masses through Windows Update in 90 days.

Users have until this time next year to upgrade to SP2 without interrupting security updates. Office 2010 will exit Mainstream Support, which provides bug patches as well as feature improvements and enhancements, in October 2015, and will be retired five years later, in October 2020.
