[Samba] Upgrading from Debian Stretch to Buster, Van Belle package

I am preparing for upgrading from Debian Stretch to Buster.
I am using Louis Van Belle's Samba packages.

My current Samba version is:
# smbstatus --version
Version 4.7.7-Debian

I can see that the Samba version that will be installed, when I upgrade 
from Stretch to Buster, will be the 4.11 since this is the current 
stable release...

I would like to know if there are major changes between those two versions.
(This is because in the past, I had to face the passage from Samba3 to 
Samba4 without having been prepared to it and my system was broken down 
for several weeks before I could set up, thanks to Rowland Penny, a 
proper system.)

Is it this line that I will have to put in 
deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian buster-samba411 main contrib non-free
Thank you for your help.
Best regards,
