I belive the same applies to 8.

They're both based on Ubuntu 16.04, which has LTS support until 2021.  Peppermint 8 is basically an update release, with a newer kernel and graphics stack and some other changes, such as default software.

Like the other guys said, both are supported until 2021 so there is no need to move from 7 to 8 until/unless you want to or are ready.

Very much in the same vein as Mint 18 and 18.1 :)
