Additionally you have to be aware that Ubuntu is copying packages from Debian (to avoid double packaging work). Only when Debian has upgraded their package, it will be taken over into Ubuntu's development release.

If you immediately need version 0.5.0, there is a PPA called unstable with that version https://launchpad.net/~neovim-ppa/+archive/ubuntu/unstable

Thank you for your information. I guess using the neovim ppa is the best option here.
