There will be no new release for sarge (but there will be a repository
with xfce 4.2 for sarge after the release). Xfce 4.2.1 is in
experimental, and soon it will be 4.2.2. We are (more or less) waiting
for sarge release and for extended testing before uploading to unstable.

Very strange, I have this repository, and I can apt-cache search xfce4,
it shows me a lot of packages
