Due to a variety of factors, there hasn't been a point release of Drupal 7 since its 7.0 release, roughly 5 months ago. There are a lot of good bug fixes (some critical/major) and performance improvements in the 7.x branch right now, and the lack of these making it out there for public consumption yet has hampered the ability for contributed module authors to port their modules to Drupal 7, and several other bad effects.
2011 has so far been a pretty amazing year, both for me personally, and also for the larger Drupal project. After nearly three years of hard work Drupal 7.0 was released, Lullabot sent me on tour to teach people about it, Drupal.org’s CVS => Git migration launched, and Drupal’s 10th birthday was celebrated at the amazing DrupalCon Chicago, where my mug was plastered on the cover of Linux Journal and Drupal 8 development officially kicked off. Whew!
