Package managers are always behind.

Since you run Linux you should be able to just download/compile/install
the latest version via svn. I have scripts that run overnight that
do that for 1.4.0 and 1.5.0. There are other such scripts in the Wiki.

First you have to ensure that your Linux system has a compiler and
auxiliary programs. I don't use a Debian-derivative like Mint but I
think the incantation for this is something like
apt-get -i build-essential
gcc -v
make -v
for details. 

I call my script from /etc/cron-daily with a one line script. 

If you have the power of Linux you may as well use it.
