Nope, on a server you typically value stability more than getting the
latest bleeding edge version. 4.8 is actually a quite recent version
if you compare to what is included in other currently supported
"enterprise" Linux distributions:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5): OpenSSH 4.3 (this of-course also
  includes derivates like CentOS 5)

* SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (SLES10): OpenSSH 4.2

Also remember that all distributions, including Ubuntu, backports
security fixes for SSH.
