For production system it is crucial to be in full control of the used driver version that you have tested and validated for your application.
With cloud platforms and dynamic container deployments the default behaviour of the language package management is to pull or update to the latest version available.
In some rare cases this can break your application when a major change is introduced.
We have listed below the main drivers that have some form of auto update or package management tools and some of the ways to control the version installed or prevent updates
Control the versions in use for your build by modifying your
requirements.txt file to require specific versions of the various libraries and drivers you are using, and this may not be only for neo4j's.

You should use
npm install firstname.lastname@example.org only download/install the exact version you have tested against
Then to lock and prevent unwanted updates use a file
package-lock.json. See here
npm-shrinkwrap.json (see here for details)
To get a specific version
dotnet add package Neo4j.Driver -v <version>
Pull via github and specify the version explicitly
