The upgrade function requires the -r newrelease flag.
The manpage does not state the formate of the newrelease value.

Is it just the release number like this 8.0 or is it like this

8.0-RELEASE. I believe you can pull 8.0-RELEASE-p2 using -r as well.



Have another question.

When freebsd-update first entered the ports system, it was limited to
updating systems that not been changed from the basic release. IE:
Recompiling the kernel adding devices or removing them. Is that still
true now?

If you have a custom kernel installed, freebsd-update will overwrite it with GENERIC, which means you will need to recompile your custom kernel.
