Microsoft has released UR2 for System Center 2012 SP1 via Windows Update.  That means you’ll auto download and deploy (pending manual/auto approval on your part) this update via WSUS, etc.  You can also manually download the updates to each product. 

Note that VMM is not included this time around and OpsMgr has quite a few updates.

Please test and then update yours or your customers’ sites to improve the performance and stability of your System Center deployments.  For consultants, this is an opportunity for you do do a little *ahem* sales, and see if there are some further deployments/customisations that you can do for your clients.
