Afaik, there are sometimes changes that cannot be done within the running 
system. Also the new releases are useful whenever an update of a package 
requires manual intervention, because then this can be documented in the 
release notes and then there are no unpleasent surprises. And the update 
cycles also allow to be sure that some update-paths do not need to be 
supported anymore, e.g. when a conversion of a config file is needed and the 
latest release with the old config file is old enough, the code within the 
spec can be skipped.
