The cumulative update package for Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 contains hotfixes for issues that were fixed after the release of BizTalk Server 2009．
We recommend that you test the hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included in the previous BizTalk Server 2009 fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.
