Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:58 am

Microsoft late Wednesday released the first test version of Office 12, the next incarnation of its ubiquitous desktop suite.

The company said it is offering up the Beta 1 code to about 10,000 pre-approved testers, with a broader test release slated for the spring. Microsoft is promising a final version of Office 12 for the second half of next year, around the same time as the company releases the Vista upgrade to its Windows operating system.

“The next version of Office is the most significant release in more than 10 years,” Chris Capossela, a Microsoft vice president, said in a statement. “Now, after many years of research and development, we’re eager to put the software to the test and solicit technical feedback from select customers and partners.”
