I got the impression that the interim releases (ie 10.11, 11.04, 11.11)
are the ones that adopt the more recent technologies and the testing is
actually done by those who install them and the LTS releases are not
aggressive and generally benefit from the testing rounds of the interim
releases. Thus if what you want is 'stable' (or more tested), then you
should probably hang with the LTS releases.
