SOLVED: Thanks and old Cinnamon version

First I want to say thanks to the Devuan community for creating a great Linux distribution. I keep a few distributions installed on SSDs in USB 3.0 external enclosures, but Devuan is the one I use most.

My question involves the version of Cinnamon. I installed from a 2.0 iso because I do not like what Linux Mint is doing with Cinnamon, specifically the dropping of support for metacity-theme-1.xml format. Even today, my Devuan Cinnamon system supports metacity-theme-1.xml format, so the version of Cinnamon is still relatively ancient, 3.2.7 according to "cinnamon --version". I do not want Cinnamon to be updated. Every now and then I execute "apt update" and "apt upgrade" in a terminal. Will Cinnamon always stay the old version I like?

As lang as you stay with ASCII you will have 3.2.7. If you move to Beowulf, you will get 3.8.8.

Thanks for the reply. I hoped that would be the answer.
