There's an old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Why _might_ 5.6.x or 5.7.x be "better for you"? Sure there might be some features you
might want, might be some performance improvements that you might notice, etc. And there
might be some regressions that will bite you. Fortunately, regressions are rare.
You should probably upgrade to 5.6 soon, simply to avoid having to do a double upgrade
when you eventually go to 5.7.
