Apple announced iWork ’08, a new version of its productivity suite.

This includes a new version of Keynote, their presentation software. New features in Keynote include Instant Alpha, a process that removes the background from placed images without having to use masking tools in image-editors like Adobe Photoshop. Another new feature is Smart Builds, an option that makes it easy to add animations. Keynote also adds new transition types, and text effects enhancements. All these options except Instant Alpha are already available in PowerPoint — and Microsoft’s upcoming version of Office 2008 for the Mac can only add more catch-up to do on both the Apple and Microsoft fronts.

As if that was not enough, Apple adds Numbers, a spreadsheet program to iWork ’08, thus making it a more even contender to Microsoft Office for the Mac.

Pages, the page layout program adds more word processing options.

What’s next? Is there an iWork for Windows coming up?
