Feisty comes with Samba 3.0.24.

Unofficial packages of Samba 3.0.26a for Feisty and 3.0.28 for Gutsy  
are available in my PPA:

Unofficial 3.0.28 packages for Feisty will be available in a couple of  
hours there, too.

Packages of the latest Samba for the latest Ubuntu-stable (Gutsy, as  
of now) are usually available in my PPA. Most times they are just  
backports of the latest Ubuntu-unstable package to Ubuntu-stable but  
sometimes I'm ahead of Ubuntu-unstable (i. e. they may eat your  
computer and burn your house :-)
