Yesterday the product group released the December 2010 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2007 and 2010 product family.
The KB articles are not yet available (as usual it will take a couple more days to get these through the required release process) but the fixes can already be downloaded.
As soon as the KB articles are live they can be found at the following locations:
The Full Server Packages for December 2010 CU can be downloaded here:
For the 2010 Server Products it is sufficient to install the SharePoint Server 2010 package as it includes the SharePoint Foundation package.

Dec CU (KB 2459257) is stable stable. Tested it on several environments and it's going to production now. Hence 3:54 AM :).
Do I still need to install the October CU or are those fixes rolled into the December CU?
the word "cumulative" in cumulative update means that a CU contains all earlier CUs.
So December CU contains October, August, ... CU
Stefan, thanks for the reply. It seemed silly asking but I had to :)
It sounds like there are already several issues that have been identified that are caused by installing the December CU for SharePoint Server. Should we hold off on it for now? support.microsoft.com/.../2459257
where did you get this message from?
Personally I have not heared about a single problem caused by the December CU - and I should have if customers in Europe would have reported such issues to Microsoft support.
Hey Stefan, there are 2 seperate known issues posted on the kb article for the December Cumulative. This is what makes me hesitant to install it. See here: support.microsoft.com/.../2459257
these are issues which were known when the hotfix was released.
Workarounds for the issues are listed in the KB as well.
just went thru the process. just follow support.microsoft.com/.../2459257 .
and everything will be fine.
My web analytics service has stopped working ever since I installed the December CU. Has anyone else experienced this?
I have looked high and low for any hints as to when SP2010 SP1 is being released, and more specifically, does it plan to make any significant changes to My Sites. This information does not seem to be readily available. Do you happen to have answers to these two questions?
customer ready information about SP1 is not yet available.
in the SharePoint 2010 update center I read, as a best practice, to install SPF updates before to install SharePoint Server updates. In your post I read that we can skip the first step. What is the best way to preceed?
the SharePoint 2010 Server CUs contain the SPF fixes. There is no need to install them separatelly.
