Mac: Office 365 Wave 15 / Microsoft Document Connection?

SkyDrive Pro isn't yet available on the Mac OS X platform, so options for connecting a desktop Mac to a Sharepoint Document Library on Office 365 aren't as slick as they might be.

Office 2011 comes with "Microsoft Document Connection".  I've successfully connected this to Sharepoint on Office 365 in the past, but it's just not working for me now, and I'm wondering whether it's not compatible with the new version of Sharepoint at the back end that's included with Office 365 "Wave 15".

Does anyone have some definite info on this?  Or experience of successfully getting Microsoft Document Connection from Office 2011 on Mac to talk to a document library in Sharepoint from Office 365 Wave 15?

Apparantly it doesn't work well with it at this moment. Also Lync from office for Mac 2011 (even with the updates) can't connect with the new version of Office 365, Outlook for Mac with the Exchange online 2013 servers are not working well together. Best is to install every update the bring out and hope it will work.

I have contacted MS support and they said they were working on it and I had to be pacient. But I'm waiting 2 months already. With the old office 365, with exhange 2010, ... Everything works smooth.
