Google is releasing a major update to Android OS this fall. Also known as 5 it will radiculy change the way you use your phone. Early reviews place it well ahead of yet to be released IOS 8 in features and performance. Time will soon tell.

No, Android have named their recent O/S revisions alphabetically (And after snacks)

Ice cream Sandwich
Jelly Bean
Kit Kat
L (probably not thought of a name?)

Radically change the way we use our phone. I doubt it..
A little fluff, a little polish and some tweaking of the code to play better with the hardware....
Radical maybe compared with the Kitkat bugfest.

From what I have seen it will be a big change unlike apple's tweaks that they call major upgrades. Android is maturing and evolving.

If it's stable and they fix the battery drain/wakelock issues, forceclose problems, memory leaks,
wi-fi connectivity issues, streaming video/audio problems and bluetooth problems they introduced with kitkat and the device behaves like it should and does what they say it should. Then YES I would call it a major upgrade....

Running Android since Cupcake so I've been around the horn with Android and Google.
Current devices:
Nexus 7 4.4.4 kitkat
Moto G  4.4.3 kitkat

Really Enjoyed Jellybean on both after the OTA patchs.  Very Smooth and stable with phenomenal battery life... Then came kitkat and stole the joy.

I hope your right. I'm still skeptical.
I've heard their song and dance before.

It is supposed to be first version with built in advanced power management. New screen/folder arrangement and many other changes. L was supposed to have been released a few months ago but was delayed for more enhancements. 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 were tweaks to buy time.
