The minetest packages for the individual distros are maintained by different people, most of which aren't actively following development (as they also maintain other packages) and thus are not aware of newer versions. You can usually request for them to update the package.
You can also compile minetest yourself, there are detailed instructions in the readme and across the forums. If you're using ubuntu or a similar distro you can also use the one-line script that is on the forums too, it will do all the necessary steps for you.

Builds are nice, but it's very easy to compile it yourself.

Which Linux distribution do you use ?

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 and I use the daily builds PPA that jp linked. There is also a stable releases PPA.
And if you want to install it by compiling, you can try Calinou's script.
Just realize how bored we would be if the world was perfect.

PPA's should be compatible with linux mint too.
