What was new in Project 2010
A much later project finish date The latest possible date Project can work with has
been moved from December 31, 2049 to December 31, 2149.
Support for touch input Like other Office 2013 applications, you can optimize the
Project interface (primarily the commands on the ribbon) for either touch or mouse
input.
New cleaner look As you use Project 2013, you will notice a latter, cleaner
interface. This new look is shared with other Office 2013 applications. Other new
visual elements, such as the handy horizontal guidelines extending from the selected
task across the chart portion of a Gantt Chart view, are unique to Project.
Lync integration (Project Professional only) In Project Professional, you can
import resource details from Active Directory. (To do this, on the Resource tab, in the
Insert group, click Add Resources and then click Active Directory.) In Project, you can
then view resource presence information (including availability and whatever other
details are supported by your organization’s implementation of Active Directory). You
can also start a Lync chat or create an email message to the resource directly from
Project.
Support for apps for Office Project2013 supports third-party add-ins and apps
available from the Office Store, located at office.microsoft.com/store .

These features are also present in Project 2013 and, depending on the version of Project

What was new in Project 2010
The 2010 version included several new features and some improved ones, including the
following:
The Microsoft Office Fluent interface (the “ribbon”) No more hunting through
menus, submenus, and dialog boxes. This new interface organizes all the commands
that most people use in a new way, making them quickly accessible from tabs at
the top of the application window. For more information, see “The ribbon and tabs:
Finding the features you want” in Chapter 2.
