The latest incarnation of Microsoft Office (2016) should be released on 22nd September 2015 (Microsoft are always a bit ahead of themselves with versions). This blog gives a detailed guide to what's new, the biggest changes being in Excel and Outlook.

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
What's new in Access, PowerPoint, Project, Visio and Word
The poor relations of Microsoft Office have received a few changes. I haven't checked any of these, but they all seem pretty minor.
|Access||Access seems to be frozen in time!|
|Project||There is a new timeline view.|
|Visio||There is a new "Getting started" tutorial, plus you can now link Visio diagrams to Excel data.|
|Word||You can co-author documents online, although many people have reported problems getting this to work.|
Note, however, that the general changes described earlier in this blog also apply to Access, PowerPoint, Project, Visio and Word, so the situation's not quite as unchanged as the above list might suggest.
