Microsoft makes Office 2016 for Mac available, first for Office 365 users | ZDNet

I am now officially annoyed about Microsoft keeping Mac OneNote functionally limited relative to Windows OneNote -- I installed the "final" Office 2016 for Mac suite today, and Mac OneNote is still missing important features such as the ability to have more than one window open at a time and showing new/unread activity indicators in shared notebooks. tbd if the other Mac Office apps will be less feature-rich than their Windows Office app counterparts; from a quick glance, one domain not addressed in Mac Word or PowerPoint 2016 -- unsurprisingly -- is OneNote (linked notes) integration, but perhaps that feature was so little used that it's going to be removed from Windows Office 2016 as well...

"On July 9, Microsoft is making the new version of its Office suite for Mac generally available, first for Office 365 subscribers.

Office 2016 for Mac -- which includes new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote -- is available in 139 countries and 16 languages starting today. The new suite, the successor to Office 2011 for Mac, has been in public preview since March 2015."
