One way would be Menu>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager and search for Cinnamon - that will show you which one you have - latest is 1.2

You can also run this in terminal:

Code: Select all

cinnamon --version

Thanks...and all subsequent versions would be auto-upgraded or do i need to manually install the newer versions?
