I see via yum that there is "samba" and there is "samba3x" available for CentOS (my boxes are hooked to the main CentOS repo, Fedora EPEL, and RPMFORGE).  


'samba' is 3.0.33

'samba3x' is 3.3.8


Is there any down-side to upgrading to 'samba3x' and running 3.3.8 instead of 3.0.33?  I'm assuming that, in general, I should be running the latest stable version, yes?
