Unless you need the new features, you don't need to upgrade.  And the current version won't
stop getting updates.  As mentioned in the thread where the project moved to a 4 month major
version cycle, smaller changes between major versions means they will be more stable.  Even
with the smaller cycle it takes a bit to get all the kinks out of new features (see all the
1.0.X releases), if the release cycle is longer, you have even longer to wait, like you did
with 0.7 where it took 5-6 months, for the new release to really be stable.
