Yes, then just change your release to 13.0 stable. (You might need to wait to change it, due to some mirrors not having the 13.0 directory tree completely set up)

If you're using slackpkg, just change your mirror from current to 13 and you'll be ready for when they catch up.
Oops, bassmadrigal already said it.

After I ran upgrade-all this morning, the version is still 13.0.0.0

I rebooted afterwards.

Mine's 13.0.0.0.0. Have you missed a zero, or have I got an extra one?

The /etc/slackware-version has shown 13.0 since this update:

Code:
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.
