You can't keep up!! I did embedded for my whole career and when I had input on the processor selection, I always opted for the older chips that would meet the requirements. This always gave me lots of options in regards to sample code and third party libraries (infrequently needed). I'd would read about the newer chips but rarely used them until they were a year or two old.

In regards to ARM, I only did 1 ARM project (mostly did TI DSPs) and I ended up using an ARM7TDMI. There were many more powerful options available but why use a more expensive processor when a cheaper well known processor would handle the job. Turned out I was easily able to run the processor at half speed and still get the job done.
