Some new details were revealed about Office 12, which is slated for the latter half of next year and Microsoft also presented Longhorn build 5086 on Friday while demonstrating a new feature called 'Meeting Space'.
Meeting Space unites presence and peer-to-peer networking to allow users to create a temporary shared environment where they can collaborate on files and other shared data.
The feature will allow users to conduct impromptu meetings without having to use a Web conferencing product, like Office Live Meeting.
The first beta version of Office 12 is expected for Fall 2005. Read more about Longhorn and Office 12 at Microsoft-Watch
