    Key here is "Git". I'm talking about pure releases. (and not just one small component getting one fix!)

      Interesting. Didn't know that Debian is starting to package it. To be fair however this is still experimental packaging, and it's a dev version of xfce.

        Xubuntu has been my "goto" DE since version 6.04 (if memory serves correctly).
        I´ m absolutely loving the simplicity and stability. But yeah it wouldn´ t hurt to have more developers working on it.

          I don´ t mind waiting for updates on xfce, it works well for me as it is.
          And since there is eons of time between xfceupdates anyway, a couple of more weeks doesn´ t bother me.
          I´m using Xubuntu Dev PPA and on occasion (if I feel particularly adventurous) I try there Experimental PPA.
          Those give me current enough software, should I need it.

          And about rolling release or´s just subjective and a matter of taste. If you like rolling release than that´ s perfectly fine..I don´ t, as simple as that.
