For production environments, stick with a stable release 
is my opinion.  Less likely to get burned that way.  2.2 
is coming along nicely, but the next alpha will probably 
not make it to you in the next few days.

2.2 is a major leap in Samba's like IMO.  While I really
am proud of what is in there, i would still recommend 
sticking to a stable release, unless there is a specific
feature that you need.
