I usually use:

sudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade;sudo apt-get dist-upgrade;sudo apt-get autoremove

To update my system which is the 13.04 beta, is there anything special I need to do to get onto the latest version or are the commands I'm using enough for that?

The beta becomes 13.04 when it is released, so if you've done an upgrade on or after the release date you should be running equivalent versions as if you'd directly installed 13.04.

(Depending on what point you started the beta, it is possible that you will still have some cruft from beta versions of various software left around - but if you're running apt-get autoremove you should have got rid of most of it. You might want to install and run deborphan as well, which can find other redundant packages.)
