Microsoft announced that a beta version of the Office 15 will be released in late summer. The company also showed technical preview for its Office 15 client, servers and cloud services yesterday. According to the rumors the client suite will include a new application called “Moorea.” It will probably allow testers to navigate and edit notebooks in a new way by providing a high-level canvas-view of all their content.
Microsoft officials are not commenting on the features in any part of Office 15; on the planned release-to-manufacturing (RTM) or general availability date; or on whether the technical preview will include a version of Office that will work on Windows 8 on ARM. Also, for those asking, we also have no idea on platform-support specifics — such as whether this preview also encompasses the rumored Office for iPad; and whether it includes a separate non-touch-centric Office 15 update for those not using tablets/touch-enabled laptops.
