As you probably know, Xfce 4.8 was released in January, and it was too late for putting it in Squeeze (which by that time it was about to be released).
Now 5 months have passed since Squeeze was released, but there seems to be no sign of an Xfce 4.8 backport. On the other hand I see that 4.8 entered Wheezy / testing two months ago.
I couldn't find any relevant information on the Debian Xfce Group page (http://pkg-xfce.alioth.debian.org/), which also seems to be outdated.
So what I'd like to know is if there are any plans to get Xfce 4.8 in Squeeze through backports in the near future.
Please note that I'm not asking "when" it will be ready, because I know the likely answer to that question would be "when it's ready". I just want to know if there are any plans to backport it or not.
Some background: I'm planning to build a customized distribution based on Stable, and Xfce 4.8 is the most important missing piece in what I'm trying to build. So the reason why I'm asking this question is for me to know if there are any chances of getting Xfce 4.8 in Squeeze, or if I should start looking for other alernatives.
I realize that I could eventually mix packages from testing, or even build Xfce 4.8 packages for Squeeze myself. But I'd rather like to stick to official (hopefully stable) packages instead of polluting the system with packages belonging to other branches.
