You are describing Debian sid/unstable, which is contunuously updated,
and where there are no releases in the usual sense of the word. Debian
stable releases are a different matter, and correspond very closely to
major releases of RHEL/CentOS. There is always an upgrade path between
consecutive releases of Debian stable.
