Will Xfce4 receive updates?

I’m aware of the initiative to re-focus on server use cases, but are there plans to update the Xfce4 packages in the repo?

If a desktop is to be used on a server, Xfce4 is the more likely one (vs Gnome DE) so it probably makes more sense to keep it updated. The currently available packages seems to be about a year old now.

If we aren’t expecting updates, I’ll look into compiling and updating it locally. Thanks!

Well I guess their targeted server usages are headless server living in containers where no desktop environment is ever needed.
