دفتر 2019 Releasing Later this Year Only for Windows 10 کاربران
Good news for people who were waiting for the next version of دفتر مایکروسافت suite! Microsoft has officially announced that the next Office version i.e. دفتر 2019 will be released later this year, در second half of 2018. The preview builds of Office 2019 will start releasing to testers from second quarter of 2018.
دفتر 2019 will contain apps such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. It'll also contain اسکایپ for business. There are no clear details available whether Office 2019 will contain other apps like Access, OneNote and Publisher. It might be possible that Microsoft doesn't add these apps to Office 2019 to replace these apps with their UWP app versions.
دفتر 2019 will be released exclusively only for پنجره ها 10 operating system which means Windows 7 و ویندوز 8/8.1 users will not be able to install Office 2019 in their computer systems.
According to Microsoft, دفتر 2019 will be supported only on Windows 10 SAC (Semi-Annual Channel) release, پنجره ها 10 Enterprise LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel) 2018 and the next LTSC release of Windows Server operating system.
One important thing to note is that Office 2019 will be released with Click-to-Run (C2R) installation technology only which means there will be no MSI installer available for Office 2019 suite. So you'll need to use Internet connection to download and install Office 2019 suite in your computer systems. You'll not get any standalone offline installer for Office 2019 suite.
MSI installer will be available for Office server products only.
دفتر 2019 will also come with a different support period. Previous Office versions used to come with 5 years of standard support and 5 years of extended support but Office 2019 will come with reduced extended support period. دفتر 2019 will provide 5 years of mainstream support and only 2 years of extended support. بنابراین it'll be supported for 7 years only. This change to the previous fixed life cycle policy has been done to align Office 2019 support with the support period of Office 2016. So Office 2019's extended support will end on اکتبر 14, 2025.
It seems that Office 2019 might be the last licensed version of Office suite and once Office 2019 support ends in 2025, the company will move to Office 365 and Office in the cloud.
What do you think about this move by Microsoft? Is it a good idea to make Office 2019 exclusive to Windows 10 only? There are still many people who are using Windows 7 یا ویندوز 8.1. It seems Microsoft wants to encourage people for moving on Microsoft 365 product suite which combines Windows 10 and Office 365.
