My new server is running the "server" version, but there's no difference
between packages available for the server or desktop installs--the only
difference is whether you install from a live CD in X, or a minimal set
of packages from a regular install CD. They both use the same
repositories. So yes, Dapper server has 8.1.4.

I was just responding to your statement:

Ubuntu seems to be leaving Debian behind... it'll be interesting to see
if Debian can work out their current internal struggles...

Understandable. I still have a few Mandrake 10.1 boxes with no more
security updates available, and a SuSE 9.0 box I can't upgrade because
of a legacy software package we can't upgrade because the licensing
model has changed and the costs would triple. And that client's been
unwilling to migrate to anything else...
