The Office for Mac 2011 patch brings the version number up to 14.5.6. The description says: The hang situation that occurs during an account sync operation in Microsoft Outlook for Mac 2011 is fixed. Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 is a version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite for Mac OS X. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. Office 2011 was followed by Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac released on September 22, 2015, requiring a Mac with an x64 Intel processor and OS X Yosemite or later.
This article talks about 'look and feel' compatibility between PC 2010 and MAC 2011 for the ribbon and features. I haven't seen anything explicitly mentioning file structure compatibility, but since they are going on about feature compatibility and collaboration with PC user, I would guess that the new files are compatible. I suspect the old DOC files will also be readable. - knowing that Office for Mac is most compatible with Office for Windows. With Office being used on more than 1 billion Macs and PCs worldwide, you can work with practically anyone you want, how you want, wherever you want—with no worries.

Looking over the entire suite, the most obvious difference with this new version of Office, if you've been used to the 2011 edition, is the new interface design. Even Office 2011 supported Retina displays, but the entire interface in 2016 has been dramatically modernised – it no longer feels dated on a modern Mac system, and the (optional) coloured toolbars help orientate you in the suite. While this will look familiar to Windows users, it's a thoroughly Mac aesthetic. The Ribbon that runs across the top of windows has been slightly reorganised, making it more consistent with Office 2013 on Windows – see the image above for a comparative shot of the Ribbon on Mac, Windows and iPad. This might mean a bit of relearning for Mac users, but the groupings, such as the new Design tab in Word, do make sense.
There's finally support for some now quite longstanding OS-level features, such as multi-touch gestures for zooming, and native full-screen mode. Microsoft's equivalent of iCloud Drive, OneDrive, is now baked in – so you can toggle (a little inelegantly) between the standard OS Open/Save dialogue box and one focused on your cloud documents – and it's through OneDrive online that you can access previous versions of files.
OneDrive also helps power collaboration – documents all have a handy share button at the top right – letting you share documents with others for them to view or edit. However, as we observed in our, the collaboration behaviour is inconsistent. Note, though, that the option in Office 2011 to broadcast a PowerPoint presentation online is gone.

Probably the most welcome new feature in Word, especially for those in corporate environments, is support for threaded comments, so that when you're inviting feedback on a document, conversations about a change can all be held together and thus be easier to parse.
You might have seen Microsoft trumpet the new Smart Lookup feature, which pulls definitions and internet search results into a pane in the document, but it's not substantially different to the feature that lived in the floating toolbox in 2011. We were initially hugely disappointed that the useful notebook view from Word – which let you record, say, a meeting or lecture while taking notes, and which time-stamped each line with the audio so you could quickly jump to a part of the recording just by clicking next to the relevant note – is missing in Office 2016, but actually that ability is still there; it's just now in OneNote, not Word.

Excel is the most obviously updated app in the suite, with plenty of additions to help buoy its high-end credentials and make it easier for Mac users in an organisation to create, edit and even simply open complex spreadsheets. PivotTable Slicers make it easier to filter the data in spreadsheets so you can pick out important trends or data points, and the optional Analysis Toolpak add-on is there for performing complex engineering or statistical analysis. What's more, the equation editor, formula builder and improved autocomplete make it easier to act on your data, and the recommended charts feature helps make sense of it in sympathetic and sensible ways. However, although cross-platform compatibility and feature parity has been improved, in some advanced and rare cases some functions from Office 2013 for Windows spreadsheets might still not be supported on the Mac, which is annoying.
