I'm looking forward to 4.11, when they migrate to GTK+ 3.

I'm very exited - I haven't looked at it closely, but I'm hoping it brings functionality to Thunar (that was my one big gripe with XFCE). Then it will be a full gnome 2 replacement on my very old gateway desktop (which is running Mint 9 XFCE).

I'm using 4.6.2 on SalineOS which does everything I need but Wheezy looks promising.
I thought you enhanced Thunar with custom actions?

Yes Waiting...

Read 4.8 has problems/rushed on XFCE boards. Personally I think was a good upgade from 4.6.

I just wonder if LMDE will get a timely Update pack (I believe a whole DE would need a Pack upgrade?) or if we'll be told to wait for next (Gnome/Cinnamon) major update!again?? :P

P.S. Phinx (PCLOS distro) started using pre release and their posting on how to compile (pre) on Ubuntu already! :wink:

It's not clear they will do so in 4.11. Read the section "Gtk3" in http://blog.xfce.org/
