Yeah, I know I've to keep 17.2 updated manually.

I was just wondering about the two different versions CL and synaptic are showing.

Which do I really have installed here 0.9.38.10 as per synaptic or 0.9.30 as per the terminal?

However, the process for getting the latest of the upstream Firejail LTS branch (0.9.38.10) into the official Ubuntu repo's for 16.04 Xenial (and therefore for Mint 18.x), has started

Thanks. Hm. I think I'll stay with making manual upgrades...
While I definitely understand the dangers and futility of chasing the latest shiny-shiny, there are some cases (and this is part of them) where there is a strong reason to have the latest version.

Today, the latest Firejail LTS has been added to the official repositories of Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18.1 (the Universe repo): Firejail 0.9.38-10 (or, as it's called in Universe: 0.9.38.10-0ubuntu0.16.04.1. :mrgreen:
