DD-WRT upgrade necessary?

I've had my R7000 since November of last year.  I'm running build 25090M of Kong's DD-WRT.  As far as I see, there are a couple of "Kong mods" and higher firmware version numbers available, are there enough new features that would warrant an upgrade?  I run PIA through the R7000 but aside from that, nothing too heavy.  Speeds are okay, on my 60/6 connection I'm getting about 20-25/5 depending on time of day.  Doubt an upgrade would help that.  Thoughts?

My thoughts relate to

My thoughts relate to whatever works well and you're satisified with...........Don't mess with it......if it isn't broke.......don't fix it.   I tried downloading and installing Tomato on an R7000 and during the installation, it appeared to stop loading so I stopped it, rebooted and voila........bricked the R7000

I have two more R7000 and my advice is NEVER do anything until the R7000 has completed loading even if it takes all day....I have since loaded them both with DD-WRT files and I'll not be messing with them until I have to otherwise you may find yourself with problems that can't be fixed.
