Upgrade to newer Slackware release. This is the same as --upgrade, with the addition of checking to make sure that all the base packages, from the base disk set, are also installed. Prior to running dist-upgrade, make sure that the package cache is updated and the crucial packages (glibc-solibs, sed, and pkgtools) are upgraded. See UPGRADE.TXT on your local Slackware mirror.

+.SH NOTES
+.TP
+slapt-get uses pkgtools for installing, upgrading, and removing.
+.TP
+slapt-get will not make assumptions or do things without you telling it to.
+.TP
+untested updates are risky, whether using official packages or third party packages.
+.TP
+slapt-get will not change your system such that you can only use slapt-get or are somehow locked into using slapt-get. The only additions to your system are /etc/slapt-get and /var/slapt-get. You are free to try another solution or go back to manual upgradepkg.
+.TP
+UPGRADE.TXT and ChangeLog.txt is still required reading, the latter is especially true when running -current.
