There's no point in breaking the API. Old stuff will be unused and barely supported, being of almost no cost to the project, and new stuff can be added, heavily-used stuff can be optimized. Thanks to widespread use of toolkits, most apps can seamlessly switch over to using new features without even having to recompile.
