It looks like Office Centennial apps are done with testing and might be revealed on May 2nd. At Build 2015, Microsoft announced Project Centennial, a way for developers to bring their .NET and Wind32 apps to the UWP and to the Store. Essentially, Centennial is Microsoft’s own tool for converting desktop apps.

Individual apps with food-related codenames

Now, Microsoft has finished the testing phase and more descriptions of individual apps are avilable, reports Aggiornamenti Lumia. They’re not currently listed under their official names, but under some cool food-related codenames:

  • Word: Sandwich
  • Excel: Soup
  • Outlook: Bibimbap
  • Powerpoint: Pasta
  • Skype for Business: Tapas
  • Visio: Salad
  • Access: Stirfry
  • OneNote: Quesadilla
  • Project: Pizza

One interesting addition is the ability to purchase Office 365 subscriptions directly from the Store, and its packages are listed with similar names such as Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

  • Lunch includes Sandwich, Soup, Pasta, and Bibimbap aka Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
  • The Breakfast package includes Biscuits, Croissant, and CupCake.
  • Dinner is only present via codename.

Office Centennial app requirements

The minimum system requirements for these apps include Windows 10 version 14969.0 or later. In other words, you will need the Creators Update to be allowed to install these apps to your device.

The Dinner Office 365 package is compatible with PC, iOS, Mac, and Android.

Microsoft’s May 2nd event will shed more light and even demonstrate how the conversion process in action. Codenamed Bespin – the Cloud City from the StarWars universe – the event is probably the place where we’ll also get to see the CloudBook as well!
