Is Tomcat still the most popular web container. I am asking because as there does not seem to be change in version. I remember seeing version 7 some years back.

You're probably misremembering. Tomcat 7 was first released less than 2 years ago. If you check its version history you'll see that it's continually being improved. Also note that no newer servlet specification than the one TC 7 implements exists; that usually drives changes in the major version number.
