Next release is due in July, so it's a little time from now.  I guess it
depends how bad you need the fix: you can either wait, or use your own
compiled version (that you can install in your home directory with
--prefix=$HOME/geany, so it's super easy to remove by just removing that
directory, and you don't even need superuser privileges).

You can also try and get your distribution's package updated with the
fix, but whether or not that will work or be fast depends on the distro,
the maintainer, etc.  If you're familiar enough with that part of your
distro, you could even create an updated package just for you waiting
for the rest, but well.

So, that's a few options you might want to consider :)
