Office 2019 Preview is already available to commercial customers at Microsoft.
It includes the familiar office programs Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint, Access, as well as Outlook, OneNote, Project and Visio . The package only works with the Windows 10 operating system. The package is primarily intended for companies that are not yet ready to work in the cloud.
The developers also took into account the wishes of corporate users, for whom it is important to preserve the design of applications and a set of features from previous versions of the package.
New package features
The new version of the office suite has a number of improvements and new functions that are designed to simplify the work with documents. Among the interesting features of the package are:
Quite controversial can be called Microsoft's decision to end support for Offoce 2019 updates along with the termination of support for the Windows 10 assembly. According to representatives of the software giant, this decision was made in order to timely update Windows and Office assemblies. Software is difficult to protect against threats when it reaches 10 years old. In addition, such programs are less productive, so there are no plans to support them.
As the pace of software changes has accelerated, Microsoft software must keep up with the current rhythm - that's what the corporation says about the problem of stopping Office updates along with discontinuing support for a particular build of Windows 10. The statement is rather controversial, since there were enough cases of updates or new ones Microsoft programs with gaping security holes, blue screens of death, freezes or crashes - you didn't have to wait several years, you just needed to update the software version.
New Office will not work with Windows 7 and 8.
In addition, it will not be possible to buy an installation package of programs either - MSI support is no longer with this version of Office. The old installer will remain for the server version of the package only. The usual 10-year support for the package is not planned: the main support will be halved, then extended support will continue for another 2 years. Reduced support times are related to security.
