As a long time Mint user, I have grown comfortable enough to graduate to LMDE. I want a rolling release so I can be certain to have the latest stable packages like GIMP 2.8 or kdenlive 0.9.3 "automatically" upgraded.
But I understand that using a rolling release comes with more risk & more work. So here is my question:
Can someone give me advice or resources to help make my transition to a rolling release distro (LMDE) as smooth as possible? What first steps should i take after installation?

Well worth all the reading...

A new .iso should be available some time this month. I would wait for it before installing (tons of updates for the old iso)...
Thank you! I will take your advice & wait for the new iso this month. Also, I have read the post you referred me to. It does bring up one question, more curiosity than anything:
referring to this from the faq you referrenced "Q3- Why are my applications not the latest possible version?"
Even though LMDE may not ALWAYS have the latest software in all cases, is it accurate to say it is still more up to date then say a 3 month old Mint main release such as Mint KDE? At least, typically?
