Hi Oliver,

I think the reason for Louis not offering 4.8.0 deb package is probably the same for us. There is a still a bug in 4.8 when you do an "in place" 
upgrade from ealier Samba version [1]. This bug has been addressed by the Samba team and the fix included in the upcoming 4.8.1. And by this time it will be more suitable to have up-to-date package for people to use. Indeed it is not a good thing to have ready to use packages to help people shoot themself in the foot.

In any case it is a good thing to test out new releases of Samba (or even RCs), and if you want to be cutting edge, the best way is still to compile.
