In the case of x264 (where development was practically finished a long time
ago) and which has a very small number of reported bugs, it will not make a
difference unless you need monochrome encoding or an optimization for a
particular platform.
For FFmpeg (where development will never be finished) with its myriad
of known (and unknown) bugs, every day brings a version that is better
than the version of the day before (for any usage).

That's apart from the fact that we don't have the manpower to support
releases apart from security issues.
