I was wondering why, after about 4 months from the release of xfce 4.10, it is still not available in official Ubuntu repositories and when it will be available? I do not want to install it from ppa.

XFCE 4.10 was released too late to be Included in the current LTS release.

The PPA containing XFCE 4.10 states:

The first Xubuntu release to feature Xfce 4.10 will be Xubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal).

The PPA is maintained by the actual Xubuntu developers, so I'd take it as pretty final. If you want XFCE 4.10 in Precise use the PPA.

XFCE 4.10 has an Official Xubuntu PPA now!

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10

sudo apt-get update

if you have the XFCE 4.10-pre installed

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If you do not have it installed and want to install it

sudo apt-get install xfce4
