All of the core module documentation and its associated screenshots have 
been copied over to a 4.12 branch.

  - xfce4-appfinder https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-appfinder/4.12/start
  - xfdesktop https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfdesktop/4.12/start
  - exo                  https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/exo/4.12/start
  - thunar https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/4.12/start
  - xfce4-panel https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/4.12/start
  - xfce4-power-manager 
  - xfce4-session https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-session/4.12/start
  - xfce4-settings https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/4.12/start
  - xfwm4 https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/4.12/start
  - xfconf https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfconf/4.12/start

The rest of the component documentation should be copied into the 4.12 
branch soon. I'll provide the list with updates as it completes.

Please let me know if have any questions about the documentation 
migration or if you see any issues with any of the pages or links.
