Nowhere. It is officially a development branch.
The developers of Scribus are very conservative
about releases. The way I get it is with an
overnight script:

export Qt5Widgets_DIR=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5Widgets

export Qt5Xml_DIR=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5Xml

export Qt5WebKitWidgets_DIR=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5WebKitWidgets

export Qt5LinguistTools_DIR=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5LinguistTools

export Qt5WebKit_DIR=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5WebKit
rm -r  /usr/local/src/s150
cd /usr/local/src
svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus s150
cd s150
/usr/local/bin/cmake .  -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus_svn -DQT_PREFIX=/home/safe/Qt/5.1.1/gcc/
make install
cd scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib5
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib5

If you don't have a 64 bit processor obviously
you have to make changes. You may need to
download Qt5 also. 

What flavor of Linux do you use? Just curious.
