Mary Jo Foley at Microsoft Watch:

Microsoft plans to make the final public test build of Office 2007 available on September 14 to the more than 3.5 million testers who were part of the company’s Beta 2 test program.

Microsoft will allow Office Beta 2 testers to download for free the Office 2007 Beta 2 Technical Refresh (TR) from the Microsoft Office Preview site, starting at 9:00 a.m. PST on Thursday.

The new build includes better product integration, improved collaboration tools and “some general fit and finish changes,” according to a Microsoft spokeswoman.

Microsoft is not making a CD or DVD version of the Office 2007 Beta 2 TR available, the spokeswoman confirmed.

This is expected to be the last public beta of Office 2007 before it ships early next year. Office 2007 Beta 2 Technical Refresh is also the version called out for Vista RC1 and .NET 3.0 RC1 which were also released this month.
