Updating to Slackware current

What are the steps that must be followed in order to update Slackware to the Slackware-current? I tried to find any information but unfortunately I didn't.
Thanks in advance!

Go to and click on Tutorials. You will find an article under U, called Upgrading Slackware. Perhaps you might find that useful.

Also be careful and always check to make sure all your config files are up to date with the correct changes or you might (sometimes) be left with an unbootable or broken system.
