An increasingly large number of businesses are integrating Office 365 and Macs into their offices. One issue with this however is that Office for Mac usually lags behind, version wise, when it comes to Office. This is starting to change though, as Microsoft has recently introduced a new version of Outlook for Mac and a roadmap as to when we will see new versions of other Office for Mac programs introduced.
Historically, when a new version of Office has been released, Mac users have had to wait six or more months for Mac versions to be introduced. With Office 365, users have had to wait even longer, as the company decided to focus on developing mobile apps first.

Upon announcing the new version of Outlook for Mac users, the company also introduced their roadmap for the release of new versions of Office programs for Mac users. The company has noted that in the first half of 2015 they will release beta versions of the next versions of Word for Mac, Excel for Mac, PowerPoint for Mac, and OneNote for Mac. Final releases will be made available in the second half of 2015.
From what we know, businesses with Office 365 subscriptions will be able to update to the new versions for free, while other users will likely have to wait, as a price list has not been made available at this time.
