 PostPost subject: New proof: Office 14 slated for 2009        Posted: Tue Jun 10, 2008 9:28 pm

Even though Microsoft has yet to release a public test build of Office 14, it is tracking for a 2009 release and will likely be named Office 2009.

Microsoft didn’t issue a press release announcing its plans. In fact, the company has been steadfast in refusing to provide a date for when the next version of its Office family will ship. A few previous leaks have pointed to 2009 as the target date, however.

The latest information on Office 14’s scheduled ship date comes from Microsoft’s Podcast for SharePoint (PKS) Q&A on the CodePlex site. From Q&A(which I expect Microsoft to edit shortly after I post this, so as to remove references to 2009):

Q: What features of PKS will be part of SharePoint 2009?
A: The SharePoint 2009 feature set has not been publicly disclosed yet. We know the video storage story will be improved.

Q: Tagging is a future SharePoint feature - how would that future feature be compatible with the custom one developed here?
A: The answer is unknown at this point and will be better understood when the first public release of SharePoint 2009 is available.

Update: As predicted, the references to SharePoint 2009 are now gone. There’s now a note addressed to me on the Q&A site. Make of it what you will. It says:

Note to Mary Jo: honest mistake on my part, this Q&A is a transcript of a LiveMeeting conversation with our TAP customers… I should have corrected the SharePoint 2009 reference and for mysterious reasons haven’t, so thanks for pointing it out! :)
I honestly have no idea how the next release of sharepoint will be named. I promise. Thanks for your interest in PKS. Cheers, Ludo

I’ve heard recently that private builds of Office 14 are circulating among external Microsoft customers and partners.

I wish that Microsoft would make this beta available to those that did beta testing on 2007.
(Of course, I also wish that they would make Windows 7 beta testing available to those that did beta testing on Vista also. :wink: )
