Microsoft has announced the local availability of Office 2011 for Mac, which the company said comes with some important additions.
One of the additions to the new productivity suite is Outlook, which replaces the ill-received Entourage e-mail client in the previous version.
Outlook for Office 2011 features a combination of e-mail, calendar and contact management and is designed to be an all-in-one application for checking your e-mail and planning your schedule.
The other components of Office 2011 for Mac are Word, Excel and PowerPoint, all of which come with new features.
Word 2011, for example, has a new full screen view mode, which is billed as a tool for taking away distractions when you need to get some serious work done.
