Windows8Italia have published some screen shots of Office 15 Build 15.0.2703.1000 , the next version of the venerable office suite.
Windows8Italia notes the app features the Metro-style chrome-less frame, but that the colour of the drop shadow for each app in the suite is slightly different, which should make multi-tasking easier when the windows stack up.
While the software includes more Metro touch, it is still far from fully optimized for that UI.
According to Windows8Italia the new features in each app are:
- There is a tool for filtering temporally. In this version does not seem to work, but probably will see a time line with which to select the records to display.
- New dialog box for entering the charts.
- Import data via Atom feed.
- New features: Converting Roman numerals to Arabic numerals, convert numbers from / to an arbitrary basis, bit-wise operations, advanced trigonometric functions, Gauss, Gamma, Phi, Xor.
- Insert video and audio online.
- Broadcast of documents on the web, such as PowerPoint.
- Animations that make the selection of the text and the scrolling smoother.
- Sketch effect for diagrams.
