Microsoft has released updates for Office 2004 and Office v. X for the Mac, replacing updates that were accidentally posted to the company's website last week.

Microsoft said the updates can be applied whether or not you installed the pre-release updaters.
The Office v. X update includes a fix for PowerPoint that caused the application to unexpectedly quit when opening a presentation.

The Office 2004 update includes the PowerPoint fix, as well as several others. Entourage 2004 now correctly handles contacts with names that contain single quotation marks, double quotation marks and brackets. Public folders are no longer duplicated and compatibility with Mirapoint Message Server has been improved.
