Default To which version will Aptitude update?

I see that there is an update to Thunderbird, but to avoid breaking
vital extensions I am wary about updating. How can I tell to which

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/thunderbird/
and
$ apt-cache policy thunderbird

That last will show you the installed version and the 'Candidate' version.

From your apt-cache show, it's the highest available version. So here
it's:

> Version: 3.1.10+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.2

Were other versions available you can specify a lower version than the
highest with an equals sign:

apt-get install thunderbird=3.1.10+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.2
