Pega 8 upgrade and How it works

Historically, Pega has been providing “Hot fixes” for the existing version of Pega to fix any issues.   Vs  Now , the solution has been to upgrade to a new version to fix any new issues that arise.   As, you now that the  Upgrade takes huge efforts and resources, so, trying to gauge their(Pega)  views, and confirm if this is the only solution(Upgrade) provided to all the customer, and also check if any alternatives available to fix minor bugs without upgrading. 

For example: If we upgrade from 7.2.2 to 8.3.2 version and had a product related issue, Now Pega asked us to upgrade to 8.4.1 to fix the issue , How can we better handle this kind of scenario's. (We don't know what else got changed in 8.4.1 and have to spent same amount of time in respect to regression testing and fixing any functionality issues that identified as a part of this upgrade)

Could you please share your experience and opinions ?
