QuoteXfce 4.12 Should Be Released in One Week, at the End of FebruaryString freeze starts today, February 20, 2015After several emails between Xfce developers and numerous delays, it appears that the highly anticipated Xfce 4.12 desktop environment will finally be released at the end of February 2015, in the last weekend, most probably on March 1, if nothing goes wrong.Unfortunately, a release date hasn't been pinned down at the moment of writing this article, but it looks like Xfce 4.12 is in string freeze starting February 20. Xfce 4.12 is in development for more than two years, as Xfce 4.11.While only a few GNU/Linux distributions have adopted the unstable 4.11 packages of the forthcoming Xfce 4.12 desktop environment, most of them are still using the latest stable release, Xfce 4.10.3, which was announced in the last day of 2014, on December 31.Not to mention that some stable GNU/Linux operating systems like Debian 7 Wheezy still have the old Xfce 4.8 desktop environment on their software repositories. Most probably, if Xfce 4.12 will be released next weekend, Arch Linux users will be the first to install it.You can rest assured that we will announce here, on this space, when Xfce 4.12 will be officially released, so make sure that you follow us on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook, and prepare your Linux boxes for the upgrade.
