If you want latest software, you don't want LTS.

People tend to implement LTS in order to have a stable (non changing)
platform which they can be sure wont be changing massively during the
lifecycle of the product. Introducing a whole new version of a product
part way through the cycle for an LTS release is exactly the
_opposite_ of what should be done.
