The Debian Netatalk3 saga continues at bug #685878. In season 4 of the epic the main issue still seems to be unclear license indications of a (very) few source files. And the usual "you go fix it", "no! you go fix it!". May be the fact that Firefox will be Firefox again in Debian [yeah!] could serve as an inspiration to the Netatalk maintainers?
Ah, well, until we have the eureka moment for Netatalk3 (4?) ...
<pragmatism style="priority-on-users:yes"> ... I'll post my .debs of the new 3.1.8 version of Netatalk as well.
Be sure to read the original blog post if you are new to Netatalk3 on Debian Jessie!|
You'll get nowhere if you install the .debs below and don't know about the upgrade path. So RTFA.
The release notes for 3.1.8 don't list anything that makes the update look mandatory but there is a nice compatibility fix for shares also exported via Samba (compatible xattrs handling). And it's faster.
The update instructions (assuming you have installed 3.1.7 before) are:
dpkg -i libatalk17_3.1.8-1_amd64.deb netatalk_3.1.8-1_amd64.deb
# reboot the box (restart of netatalk may not be sufficient)
# After reboot: remove the obsolete libatalk16 (3.1.8 uses libatalk17)
dpkg -r libatalk16
And here are the files:

You usually will want the libgcrypt version. This is the safe and sound default. The alternative debs have been built with openssl support (replacing the default libgcrypt). Thus they have uams_dhx.so, uams_randnum.so and afppasswd available after install. These may be needed if you just migrate from Netatalk2 and want to stay insecure a little longer...
