The amount of work required keeping things running is similar (some say slightly higher), but it gives you the advantage that the changes themselves are smaller and the set of commits you have to look at to find out what changed and what it was replaced by is much smaller (compensating for the lack of documentation of those changes and their replacements).

For llvmlite, we typically wait for a X.Y.1 release.  Switching from
X.Y-1.1 to X.Y.1 takes a few days on average.  We ship binaries for
several platforms (Linux, OS X, Windows) and using SVN head would have
us suffer from whatever temporary instabilities or regressions have
been introduced.
