It is, actually, you just don't see
V7 moves from laravel 4.1 to 5.2 . They probably should have done this with v6 (when they introduced laravel), but it is what it is.
V7 adds php7 support
V7 adds in auto-update support (for better or worse).
these are pretty major upgrades and updates, believe me.
Agreed, it's not a terribly huge upgrade from the customer perspective. From the developer perspective? Yeah, it's a nightmare (especially that laravel upgrade, since somewhere along the lines they chose to modify how functionality works).
I have a feeling, just like 6, in the .1 or .2 release, we'll see more upgrades focused on customers
