I would wait a bit if I was you, version 4.1.3 from backports is
probably the same as version 4.1.3 in Jessie and whilst it installs and
you can provision it, there seems to be a problem with samba-tool. I
have been trying it out in a VM and cannot get samba-tool to export the
domain keytab, it segfaults every time, there is a bug open for it here:
It would seem the problem lies in the hdb plugin (whatever that is) and
samba hasn't been keeping up-to-date with it, from reading the bug
report, patches are imminent.
This probably explains why 4.1.3 hasn't made it into Ubuntu 14.04 yet.
