Tumbleweed is faster than Leap?

I must be reading this sentence incorrectly,
"Leap also offers users, developers and system administrators an easy path to move to other operating systems like openSUSE's faster, more updated distribution Tumbleweed,".
Let me shorten that so you can see what I don't understand,
"Leap ... offers ... an easy path ... to ... openSUSE's faster, ... Tumbleweed,".
Is this sentence indicating that Tumbleweed runs faster than Leap on the same hardware? How can that be? They both use basically the same code. Don't they?

I'd guess it's meant as "faster updated" as in "rolling release" - not as in "the software runs faster". If you have an idea how to improve the sentence so it's understood this way by everybody, go ahead ;-)
BTW: Yeah, newer software versions can be faster if performance issues get fixed - but it can also be slower if too many new features and eyecandy gets added ;-)
