The cumulative update packages for August 2008 contain the latest hotfixes for the 2007 Office core suite applications and servers.
We recommend that you test hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous 2007 Office suites fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains the hotfix that you need.
