It depends on which distribution you intend to use. Under linux, it is perfectly normal to compile the source of Minetest yourshelf. It does only take a few minutes and gives you the most current version :-)

You need to go to the git repository. Download at your box the 0.4.3 source and follow the instruction at the git mainpage of cerleron55 minetest to compile it in a few seconds.

Thats all...
