Note that update rollups are cumulative, i.e. they contain fixes released in earlier update rollups for the same product level (RTM, SPx). This means you don’t need to install previous update rollups during a fresh installation but can start with the latest rollup available right away.
I’d recommend to thoroughly test this rollup in a test and acceptance environment first, prior to implementing it in production.
Note that when running ForeFront Protection for Exchange, you need to stop all ForeFront services before installing the rollup. While not entirely perfect, this is a welcome improvement over earlier rollups, where you had to disable and re-enable ForeFront using fcsutility /disable and fcsutility /enable respectively.

Per the comment thread on the EHLO blog post on RU6, you no longer need to run fcsutil — just stop the Forefront services. Just verified this.
Thanks for the heads-up; updated post to reflect this change.
