Thanks to the release team ACK, I've started uploading Xfce 4.10 to unstable yesterday. For now, I've only pushed Xfce 4.10.1 desktop components, which means people using xfce4 + xfce4-goodies in unstable won't be able to upload at once.

That's because panel plugins have a quite hard dependency on the running xfce4-panel, and the communication protocol has changed between Xfce 4.8 and 4.10. So all panel plugins need to be rebuild against the new xfce4-panel. I'll start uploading new releases or packages revisions this evening, and binNMUs will be scheduled for the rest, but it'll take some days.

In the meantime, you can safely wait before upgrading xfce4. If you don't use external panel plugins, then you can accept to remove xfce4-goodies and the various xfce4-*-plugins and upgrade to xfce4 4.10.

There's no need to report a bug about that situation, we're already aware of it and it's somehow intended, things will settle in a few days.

This is an update on the Xfce 4.10 transition to unstable. Most desktop components have been uploaded, built and installed to the archive.

We're now currently building and uploading the various goodies, and especially panel plugins. There's a lot of them so it takes some time.

Once we'll have finished to build and upload all the goodies, we'll ask for binNMUs on the packages which don't need a sourceful upload but need to be rebuilt against libxfce4util or xfce4-panel 4.10.

You can follow the transition status using the release team page.

In any case, please be patient while we upload all the packages. Again, no need to report installability issues in unstable for now, we are aware of it and don't need more warnings. We'll fix the fallouts in due time.
