Third party dependencies, specify version per environment

Since third-party dependencies get automatically updated to the latest version, there will be times when an unintended bug introduced in a third-party dependency will break your app.

It’d be really nice if we could specify the version of the third-party dependency we wanted to use. That way we could evaluate the update in a dev/test branch to ensure nothing breaks because of the update, then update the production branch to use it.

Right now we could maintain our own copy of the third-party dependency to ensure we didn’t automatically get the latest version, but it doesn’t look like we can update it for a dev/test branch only to test the integration before rolling it out.
