Having first been mentioned last October, Microsoft has announced that the second Service Pack for Office 2007 will be offered to users via the Windows Update services by the end of the month.

Office 2007 SP2 is expected to bring some long-desired features to the suite including native support for the default file type of OpenOffice, Open Document Format (ODF) and PDF. A post on the WSUS Product Team blog also mentions improvements to Outlook’s performance and calendar reliability, significant bug fixes for charts in core Office applications, the ability for client service packs to be removed using an uninstall tool, a host of customer-requested improvements to the Office Server products, and as usual with a service pack, it will contain all previously released fixes for Office 2007 products.

Microsoft is also working on an updated Office suite, codenamed “Office 14“, which is anticipated to follow the Windows 7 release at some point in 2010.

Anyone who has made the switch to a 64-bit operating system will know most applications aren’t 64-bit native yet. But things have been changing fast in the past year as users move to newer hardware and computer vendors push 64-bit systems with larger amounts of RAM by default. Microsoft has previously stated it expects the majority of Windows 7 installations to be 64-bit and now the company is apparently ready to move other software in that direction as well.

ZDNet’s Ed Bott has done some digging around and reportedly found references to both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office 14 inside the ‘migwiz.xml’ file that comes with post-beta builds of Windows 7. This appears to indicate that fully native 64-bit builds of Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, Visio, and Word are on the way as an option when Office 14 goes live. In addition, the file points out the ability to upgrade from either Office 2003 or 2007 to Office 14 in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.

Regardless of how much or little effect this will have on the suite, performance-wise, it could encourage more software developers to start developing their own 64-bit applications too. The fact that these codes are to be implemented in the final release of Windows 7 later this year also confirms Microsoft’s plans to release Office 14 in early 2010, according to Bott.
