Office 2003 SP1 planned for May

— 2:29 AM on January 8, 2004

Microsoft is pushing hard to get the service pack out by late May.

The plan now is for SP 1 to include not only the hot fixes and patches that typically flow after the retail release of a product, but also fairly major new features for both InfoPath and OneNote, the sources said.

InfoPath is the application that enables a user's desktop applications -- Word, Excel, etc. -- to tap into back-end data via XML links. OneNote is a note-taking application that eliminates the need for keyboard entry.

In better-late-than-never news, MS has finally released a cleanup tool that should remove all traces of the MSBlast worm that affected systems worldwide last summer.
