I would advice going ahead and updating in anticipation of the upcoming jailbreak, but do not update OTA (over the air)! Update in itunes to preserve any ability there maybe in the future for downgrades and other things you might want to take advantage of.

You can jailbreak on all 6.x although its best to get 6.1 for new features. Then just wait for it to come out.
