Major releases (as in version .20 to .21, .21 to .22 etc.) happen as the
work is finished, and typically occur every 1-2 years (at least for the last
few releases).  The devs do not have a specific time based release schedule,
such as Ubuntu's 6 month release cycle.  There are basically two ways to
handle this.  You can compile your own and have bleeding edge stuff every
day (or whenever there's something new), or you can stick with some kind of
packaged binary setup (such as that offered by mythbuntu et al) and have
ease of use and relative stability of more thoroughly tested code.  I prefer
the latter, but both approaches have their merit.
