If you want your Cinnamon stuff updated you'll have to do it manually through the Cinnamon site until Cinnamon gets native installation support.
Built in installation of Cinnamon extras will be great. That's really my only gripe with Cinnamon.
Other than that I have been impressed by the improvement in Cinnamon recently.
I took a deep breath and allowed the Romeo repo and was rewarded with a Cinnamon that has become very stable and smooth. Coming from the OSX and Windows world I am gob-smacked at how fast Cinnamon has come along. Last winter not much better than a proof of concept, now, less than a year latter starting to feel like a mature desktop.
Neither MS or Apple could pull that off. It took Apple three years to get Quartz up and running and then only barely so. MS, well, we all know how slow they are.
