XFCE 4.10 at 12.04 repositories
 
Hello,*

When is XFCE shipping for Xubuntu 12.04 LTS?*
I see that the plan is to become available at the next version of Xubuntu 12.10. Will it become available for 12.04 at the same date as well?*


Best regards*

Why would you need to install every 6 months? XFCE is unlike some desktops in that the changes are relatively small. What is it about 4.08 that is so deficient that one would need to upgrade?

Sorry to be so strident about it, but you've hit one of my pet peeves. I think Linux users are too used to upgrading to the newest and shiniest-as opposed to Windows XP users, who have only recent become the minority of Windows users.

So, we get idiotic reviews that focus not on whether something is functional and user-friendly, nor on performance, but on what new features are provided, and we get people feeling the need to upgrade regularly.

Small changes between 4.8 and 4.10? I hink, you have read the whole page :)
One of the biggest was adding preview and multi drag and drop files on
the desktop for me of course. And others small changes, from which Xfce
is far more usable :)

I forgot about the apps, like LibreOffice where ubuntu 12.04 LTS doesn't
even have version 3.6 or GIMP 2.8 which was one of the most important
releases.

Yeah, it's apps that get me upgrading Ubuntu.

Xfce 4.10 doesn't feel any different to Xfce 4.8. Just a little smoother :-)

And lose the LTS? I don't think so.

As someone else pointed out, one of the very few advantages of Win XP
was its staying power. It is still around long after its projected
support period and will yet be until July next year, IIRC.

Would that X/Ubuntu LTS releases did *not* reach an actual EOL after 5
years (or is it three now?).
