Yes it's part of xfce4's release,and xfce4 meta package requires
xfdesktop, it doesn't require specific version of it,but apt-get upgrade
should upgrade your xfdesktop. so you had xfdesktop allready installed,
you only had to upgrade it

upgrades should happen on apt-get upgrade automaticly, I made that meta
rpm so it would be easy to install xfce4 release. maybe you're right
and I should add mode version requirements in there, but I don't see
what use would be separate extra meta package on rpm's that comes on
