Patience is a virtue!!

And, no you haven't missed anything.

After Ubuntu 9.04 was released Mint-7 came just 10 days later.
But the Xfce edition wasn't released for a few months.

It is coming ... and it will be worth the wait! :P

I installed the Xfce4 Meta Package from the Mint repositories over the Mint-8 Gnome desktop.

Or you can add the Mint-Xfce repositories to the /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com helena-xfce main upstream import
deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com helena-xfce main upstream import

But no Mint-8 Xfce x64 edition yet.

Merlwiz79, maintainer of XFCE CE said:
I cannot make a 64bit version as I don't have the computer to do so or the money to build one.
Maybe somebody can help with that!

Is there any change in the situation yet? I would really like a 64-bit version...
Since Helena is in development, will this make it to 64-bit?

Someone could set up a "Buy Merlwiz a 64 bit computer" donation link.

EDIT: Seriously, we could get a Paypal set up, and get a lot of forum members to put a link to it in their sigs. It would be a nice way to say thanks for all the hard work he does here at Mint.
