Microsoft yesterday release EMET 5.1 . One particular sentence in Microsoft's blog post suggests that you should apply this update (if you are using EMET) BEFORE you apply the Interent Explorer patch Microsoft is going to release in a couple of hours:

"If you are using Internet Explorer 11, either on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, and have deployed EMET 5.0, it is particularly important to install EMET 5.1 as compatibility issues were discovered with the November Internet Explorer security update and the EAF+ mitigation."

For full details, and features added in EMET 5.1, see Microsoft's blog post [1]
