WTH? 13 is out? :confused: :D
So, there should be soon info on Slackware.com :) And x86_64 is going to final version, at last :D Wondering, if UPGRADE note is changed...
I'm still waiting for official statement about switching from x86_32 to x86_64 :)

Not yet!!! So far only Release Candidate 2

What you see during your upgrade is just a regular upgrade to -current. From -current ChangeLog.txt:

a/etc-13.0-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
Added root to power, netdev, and scanner groups in /etc/group.

Ok, I'm running current from allways ;) So I know, that it is upgrade to current ;)

But the number of etc package shows, that the 13 is near :)

It's been that way since 16th June 2009 so no news there I'm afraid. Admittedly I agree 13 is close though.

If you don't upgrade those packages then you aren't truly running -current and will not really have 13.0 when it's out.

There won't be an official statement about switching to x86_64 because that switch is not being made. If you had followed Slackware's progress over the past months, you would have seen that there are now two supported architectures for Slackware that are jointly developed and maintained - one for 32bit and one for 64bit architecture.
You get to choose what to install. The 32bit Slackware will not be dropped.
