I'd like to update GNOME but I don't want 3.10 until a few extensions I use are updated. Can I specify a version to update with apt-get?

According to apt-cache policy the current version of Gnome in the repositories is 3.8:

user@host:~$ apt-cache policy gnome
gnome:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1:3.8+4ubuntu1
  Version table:
     1:3.8+4ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy/universe amd64 Packages

So you should be able to upgrade just fine currently.

Note I'm running 13.10, but it should be the same in 13.04. Run apt-cache policy gnome to double check

Apparently I somehow have 12.04 and thought it was 13.04... sigh.. #newguy –  user215559 Nov 14 '13 at 1:44
    
@user215559 Are you sure? After a look at ubuntu packages it appears Gnome 3.4 is the latest version for 13.04 as well.. –  Seth Nov 14 '13 at 2:58
