Office 2000 Service Pack 2 is coming
According to unconfirmed reports, Microsoft is currently working on a new service pack for Office 2000. Unlike before, however, this will be called 'Service Pack' and not 'Service Release'.
The 'Bug Fix' fixes all errors that became known after the SR1a and therefore requires that Office 2000 SR1a is installed. The patch does not seem to add any new functions. The mentioned release date of the US patch is October 14th, a German version should follow a short time later.
