51 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.               
Need to get 162.3MB/162.4MB of archives.                                       
After unpacking 3.4MB disk space will be freed.                                
(...)
etc-12.34567890-noarch-3 is to be upgraded to version 13.0-noarch-1
(...)
WTH? 13 is out?
So, there should be soon info on Slackware.com And x86_64 is going to final version, at last 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:

Quote:
Tue Aug 11 01:04:25 CDT 2009
a/etc-13.0-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
Added root to power, netdev, and scanner groups in /etc/group.

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.
