WordPefect X5 has a Service Pack 2

Service Pack 2 for Corel WordPerfect Office X5 is auto-installing on most systems now. On my US setup, the version number (Look in the menu under Help, About WordPerfect…) has notched up to 15.0.0.505.

The service pack is also available for download at Corel:

Here’s the short list of new stuff:
