LMDE is a "rolling release' and is following the 'testing' branch of Debian.
As a 'rolling release', there are no new releases ... only a new snapshot .iso will be released, accordingly.We'll see what happens when Debian releases "Wheezy as stable" (in a couple years) and a new 'testing' name is released?
As a rolling release, LMDE is going with the monthly snapshot cycle and the release will be 'named' after the corresponding year and 'month'.
Hence, LMDE 201109
