That being said, there are many reasons to upgrade to a later version.
I would recommend an upgrade to 8.0 immediately and that you begin
evaluation of using 8.5 for your application(s). Tomcat 8 offers more
features and improved performance over Tomcat 7. Tomcat 8.5 offers
even more of the same (especially NIO+OpenSSL), though I'm holding off
a little more until more little wrinkles get ironed-out (which only
seem to affect people doing somewhat specialized things like tricky
Websocket maneuvers).
