Byte² has released an update to Office² HD, its Microsoft Office compatible document editing app for the iPad, adding support for Excel and PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 formats (XLSX, PPTX) and the ability to use revision tracking in documents. With Office² HD users can now track text changes and make comments in documents, allowing users to more effectively review and collaborate on documents while on the go. The new version also adds support for Microsoft SkyDrive, Egnyte and Soonr services and fixes problems opening Excel files with protected structures, improves support for conversion between Word 97-2003 (DOC) and Word 2007-2010 (DOCX) formats and improves issues with persistent table column widths in Word 2007-2010 documents and curved and bent connectors in Word 97-2003 documents. Office² HD is available from the App Store for $8.
