Is there a way to install xfce4.12 in xubuntu 14.04?

I tried the ppa from xubuntu-dev, but it's only available for 12.04, 12.10 and 13.10

hmm. doesn't work for me neither. I used to have 4.12 installe don 13.10. not sure if there's a difference or not. So, how to get 4.12 on 14.04? – user273813 Apr 24 '14 at 20:35
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade 

that's how I installed it on my system, but you're right and we're discussing the issue here
