On stable, I am currently running Xfce4.6. I notice that in the sid

a manner that will not break my system, or is it really only a matter of
waiting for Xfce4.8 to make its way through the repos to stable?
About the safest way would be via backports to Squeeze - provided
Xfce4.8 is there.
Otherwise you have an eighteen month or so wait before stable has
anything other than Xfce4.6. Squeeze will always have Xfce4.6.
Unfortunately, it looks as if I will have to wait. Xfce4.8 is in
testing though, so I may work up the nerve to update to testing one of
these days, but will otherwise just wait.
