No. As  shows us, there's a mainline branch (aka to-be-released
kernel), stable branch (aka released kernel) and longterm support
For the record, I looked for the referent of "", but couldn't find
any pointer in Reco's message or OP's.
So I made a wild guess and went to
There I saw the list of downloads on the front page:
| mainline: 4.18-rc8
| stable: 4.17.14
| longterm: 4.14.62
| longterm: 4.9.119
| longterm: 4.4.147
| longterm: 3.18.118 [EOL]
| longterm: 3.16.57
| linux-next: next-20180809
