I ran across this article yesterday, and was surprised to see this…
"Microsoft announced on Thursday that its next-generation Office solutions and other "2013″-branded products have reached the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) milestone."
This portion of the article was very interesting to me as well,
"Office 365 Service Update Office 365, Microsoft's service that delivers hosted versions of Exchange, SharePoint and Lync, along with a premises-installed Office Professional Plus, is also getting new capabilities. The Office 365 improvements happen a bit differently from the RTM releases because Microsoft continually updates its Office 365 services through various "service update" releases. The next service update with the new 2013-branded capabilities will start becoming available to Office subscribers in November.
Developers building on Office 365 could see a bit of downtime during the service update transition period, according to a Microsoft blog post. Developer tools, including Napa, will get an upgrade too at the time of the service update."
