If you check here: Package: quickly on

You will see that it depends on the package python.

Which on 12.04 is version 2.7.3
on 13.04 it's 2.7.4

For other releases of Ubuntu in a terminal enter

python --version

The number returned is the version of python its using.

If you want to use python3 instead take a look at this question
