well, that's how Debian works adn especially appliances built on debian, 
but you need to consider something newer anyways


Security support until: 26 April 2016
Long-term support: May 2018

don't ask me what "long time support" is worth when security support 
ends a year before, i won't touch based on Debian anyways because of 
their idiotic backporting attitude even when upstream releases a update 
which only fix critical bugs and when i have to use testing repos in 
production i can then also install a sane distribution where i get 
packages like samba-4.5.10-0.fc25.x86_64
