I've updated the repo with the Debian Stretch 4.9.4 packages. 
No changes on my side, so check the samba changelogs for whats fixed. 

Info : https://apt.van-belle.nl
Buildlogs : https://downloads.van-belle.nl/samba4/Buildlogs/stretch/ 

The repo setup.

1) Choose http or https for you apt, both work, for https you need to :
apt-get install apt-transport-https

2) Import my public key
wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -
Or pull my key from the pgp.mit.edu server.  
apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 0xE6F6A3C7EB7A89CF 

3) (optional) setup a header line for the repo file.
echo "# AptVanBelle repo for samba." | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

4) In the line below, change the OS and/or samba version to what you want. Shown is debian stretch with samba 4.9.
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian stretch-samba49 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

All terms like (jessie) and (jessie-backports) and (unstable) are related to this apt-repo (apt.van-belle.nl) are now absolete as of 21-08-2018.
Also (stretch), (stretch-backports) and (stretch-unstable) are now absolete as of 24-08-2018.
As of 1 Jan 2019 the old names will be removed. 
Why: The old repos needed one another, the new repos contain all you need in one repo.
It is saving me some traffic and better to handle. 

Dont hammer the server, you will get blocked automaticly if you do so. ( for 1 day ).

Upgradeing from Debian Jessie advice.
Read : 
Now update your smb.conf and update you samba to samba 4.8.
When that's done and samba is at 4.8, then upgrade to debian stretch. 

Ubuntu bionic packages 4.9.4 can be expected at latest Friday. 
Working on them now.
