I am thinking I was not clear. Sorry.

I have no problem waiting for you to release the latest and greatest. Thanks
for that!

I am new to the Debian world and I seem to remember in the past you posted
extra commands for upgrading to the next samba release.

On Red Hat systems with rpms, it is simply yum update and reboot when it is
done.  On Debian based systems it seems more complex/confusing.  Google shows
things like apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. Is that enough or is there
something more that needs to be done for a samba DC?

Not sure why it is necessary to do an update and upgrade but whatever. I just
do not want to bork things.
