Kslackcheck keeps in sync changelogs and shows updates in a graphical popup in KDE, with just one click. It can tell users what packages in need to be upgraded for major releases, and helps to download them to a particular directory ready for manual upgrading.

Release Notes: A minor proxy bug was fixed, compatibility with Slackware 12 was added, and Slackware 9.1 support has been dropped. DO NOT UPGRADE Kslackcheck if you are still using Slackware 9.1.
Release Notes: Slacklogo menu installation has been fixed. The Slovak translation has been updated, and a Deutsch translation added. The popup style has changed, moving from kdialog to a knotify DCOP call. Another bugfix has been made in proxy connections, which should now work as expected.
Release Notes: According to the new -current layout, KDE binaries and related files have been moved to /usr instead of /opt, which would also work in official Slackware releases. There is a fix for proxy connection: this release tires to find proxy settings in wgetrc, and for now the default mode is a proxy connection without authentication. To obtain authentication, just set new value in PROXYAUTH in kslackcheck.conf.
Release Notes: A pair of new translations (Bosniak and French) were added. Some bugs were fixed, and a little improvement was made to the package engine.
Release Notes: This version is mainly a bugfix release with some improvements in the package check engine, especially for /patches packages.
