We’re happy to announce that Service Pack 2 (SP2) for our Office and SharePoint 2010 family of products is now available!
The SP2 release improves the compatibility of the Office and SharePoint 2010 products with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013. It also addresses security, stability, and performance and contains all the Cumulative Updates (CU) and Public Updates (PU) that have released since SP1, starting with the June 2011 CU and July 2011 PU and ending with the April 2013 CU and May 2013 PU. The issues fixed specifically in the service pack are listed in the SP2 changes list.
As of today, all of the SP2 updates are available from the Download Center at the links listed below as well as from Microsoft Update as a manual download. After a 90-day period, SP2 will be offered as an automatic update through Microsoft Update. Customers using the Office Click-to-Run technology will have SP2 streamed to them beginning in August.

Sorry for posting so many comments. Delete my first two and this one.
Any thoughts on why SP2 would break charts created in Excel but pasted into PowerPoint 2010? Please see example:
X and Y axis and legend lose text after the update.
I've spent 7hrs working on trying to install the SP2 but have run into so many issues. I read where the best way to install is to make a new ISO disk and install SP2 on it ... ! what!!!??
Catching up on some of the questions asked in the comments here:
- SP1 is not required before installing SP2. SP2 includes SP1 and can be installed over either the original RTM product or SP1.
- The Office 2010 SP2 download listed above does not include any of the other packages listed.
- Full, integrated SharePoint 2010 SP2 installs (with SP2 patches in the Updates folder) that are compatible with Windows Server 2012 are available now on MSDN and will be available in the Volume Licensing Service Center later this fall.
- The April 2013 CU was the last CU included in SP2.
I am an owner operator of a consulting business using o365 to try to make my life easier.
I therefore administer my own IT, which I hate at the best of times.
Do you think you could make this request any more unintuitive (sarcasm!!!)
I went to this link to install service pack 2 (what ever that means) read through the instructions with the table of more than 20 x 4 cells of hyperlinks that mean absolutely nothing to me. What the hell am I supposed to do?
Thank you again MS!!
I don't understand any of what is listed here? What am I supposed to click on and download? Many of us do IT for ourselves and this is not easily understood for those of us who are small business owners. Please provide better instructions.
@Matt, @Carrie: If you only need to update Office 2010 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Publisher, Access, OneNote, InfoPath, or SharePoint Workspace), then KB 2687455 (support.microsoft.com/.../2687455) is the one you need. Go to that KB article and click either the 32-bit or 64-bit download link in the article, depending on whether you have 32-bit or 64-bit Office installed. The "32-bit" and "64-bit" links in the above table are simply another way to get to the same downloads.
The same is true for SharePoint Server (KB 2687453), Project (KB 2687457), Project Server (KB 2687452) and Visio (KB 2687468). Most of the rest of the updates listed in the above table are supporting products or language packs that you may or may not need, depending on what you have deployed.
