Ubuntu follows a fixed release schedule, with one release in October and one release in April. To compensate for year-end holidays, April releases follow a 27-week schedule, instead of the 25-week schedule of October releases.

While Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, Linux Mint doesn’t follow a fixed released schedule. Linux Mint developers publish new releases when they are considered ready, which has traditionally been approximately one month after Ubuntu releases.

Please, have a closer look at this WIKI webpage: Linux Mint version history
Pay extra attention to the release dates of Mint 17, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, 18, 18.1, 18.2, 18.3, 19 and 19.1
These dates should permit you to do your own forecast when roughly Mint 19.2, 19.3 and 20 will be released.

Each new release will be announced by Clem here: Releases & Announcements
