I run from source, and today pulled a series of new changes, like

a recipe update -- I don't use recipes
fix for Get books related to Project Gutenberg -- I don't use Get books
allow customizing ebook-format icons, and show them in the tag browser -- I tested this for someone else, but will never use it myself (I think)
allowing multiple libraries to be distinguished in Calibre Companion based on the port # they broadcast from. -- I don't have CC.
fix for inheriting MTP in a custom device plugin -- this was someone else's unique problem.

Oh. Em. Gee! Not one of those changes changed anything for me!

Many people update once every few months to a year, when something they use starts giving them problems. It is a valid usage.
