Series to Series would almost re-classify us as a rolling release. Support would be a nightmare too. There are very good reasons to choose LTS over rolling release. Especially in regards to our target audience. Cheers.

Hello,

If I install a Release Candidate, like LinuxLite 6.2 RC1, when the stable official 6.2 or newer are released, will the updates pick up the stable version and update from 6.2 RC1 to Stable 6.2 and it will continue to update normally within the series?

(P.S. I really wish an upgrade from series to series was possible through Update/Upgrade procedure without reinstallation or some workaround tricks.)

Thank you.
