If i as a new user go to https://xfce.org/ and read and click Download
it says 4.12 is the latest version and if i want newer i can build it.
http://archive.xfce.org/xfce/4.12/ says last modified 28-Feb-2015 21:07
so i think like... oh that project is properly not being maintained
anymore if that is the latest version 5½ years ago.
I think my confusing is partly because Xfce About dialog always just
says 4.12. So i think everything is just the same when it says 4.12.
Should it not says 4.12.5?
I have made a bug to improve the About dialog details.
I dont know how it could be written better on the website but if there
have been these releases:
After 4.12 then it would be fine seeing that so you have 1 big news per
year or something like that instead of 5½ between each big news.
Like is the latest big news was 4.12.5 (2018-2019 or when ever) then it
would at least show that something is going on.
It does say lastest news.
