What bugs/issues are you noticing in Xfce that cause you to want an update? Because someone posted a question about an issue on the Xfce home site's forum and Jérôme quickly posted an update. Therefore, if you have an issue for which you have seen no update, I would tend to assume it's because no one has told him about it.
Proud to be a Mint user. Running 32-bit Mint 14 Xfce (with Xfce 4.10 and 4.12 PPAs). I have the best modern OS and it runs on my really old hardware, lol.
