Yes 4.3.x is old, it is EOL as far as Samba is concerned, but 4.7.0 has
not not been released yet, it is still an RC, but when it is released,
4.4.x will go EOL, 4.5.x will only get security fixes. 4.6.x will go
into maintenance mode. 

The problem with Ubuntu is that you will probably have to compile Samba
yourself if you want a later version that isn't EOL.

Have you considered using Debian instead ? this way you could use
Louis's packages.
