You should be just fine. You can check from the terminal by:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

If you suspect that a version hasn't been updated, or has been held back
you can also check in System|Administration|Synaptic Package
Manager|Custom Filters|Installed - click the left most column header to
show all installed & scroll through to check the 'Installed Version'
against the 'Latest Version'. Same for "Installed (local or obsolete)" etc.

To see what is being updated, point your news reader (Thunderbird or
SeaMonkey works nicely for this) to news.gmane.org and right click &
subscribe to the gmane.linux.ubuntu groups, in particular:

[all security updates]
[all accepted feisty changes]
[this mailing list]
