Office updates for new Japanese era

Vzťahuje sa na: Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 2Word 2010Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 2

Summary


On May 1, 2019, a new Japanese era and its associated calendar began. Most Office products that support the Japanese calendar and are within their support life cycle have been updated to reflect the new era.

The Office team will continue to release updates for client and mobile versions (including iOS and Android) of Office products on the regular monthly release schedule. Future updates will contain fixes and features such as fonts and the IME that are heavily dependent on the recent announcement of the new era name. Note that in addition to the Office updates, customers have to verify that the operating system (Windows, iOS, MacOS, or Android) is updated and supports the new era.

To ensure customers have the best possible experience when the era begins, some Office products will display the new era prior to its start on May 1. 

To learn more about the Microsoft effort to prepare for the new Japanese era, see Updates for May 2019 Japanese Era Change.

As always, we welcome any feedback that you may have about the updates. For more information, see How do I give feedback on Microsoft Office?
