SlackCheck allows users to keep many Slackware machines up to date with the latest packages. All upgrades are performed from single machine though SSH (or RSH). It generates an upgrade script and list of non-standard packages for every machine.

Release Notes: Support for LZMA packages was added. This change allows you to upgrade from Slackware 12.1 to Slackware-current.
Release Notes: Update file generation was sped up by factor of 3. The --verbose option was added to see what packages will be upgraded. A bug was fixed that prevented the --gen command from working after --sync.
Release Notes: The possibility to use per host package ignore lists was added.
Release Notes: A broken check for the aaa_elflibs package was fixed.
Release Notes: Do not try to upgrade the aaa_elflibs package. This package should be installed initially and then never upgraded. For more info, see the Slackware-current ChangeLog from Mon Jan 24 20:41:03 PST 2005. An example has been added on how to use slackcheck to update packages using the Slackware CD (see config.sh).
