I have been using xfce trunk for the past two days and it seems nice.
I'd like to comment on the new panel since you asked :)

So far the thing I like most about it is that it has the 'full width' 
option. What I don't like is (and what some other users mentioned too) 
is the lack of add/remove plugin options in the right hand menu and the 
impossibility of moving plugin icons around as in the 4.2 panel. The 
current add/remove via drag-n-drop seems too convoluted to me but OTOH I 
know this is not what people should do too often. If it's not too much 
to ask could this be considered as a per/panel config option?

I like the idea of having the taskbar as a plugin. Is that still planned 
for iconbox too? If so will the two standalone apps be still shipped 
with 4.4?
