Reminder for those using (or planning to use) Xfce on EL-7. Please test
Xfce 4.12 packages in epel-testing. Details are below.
In the absence of adverse reports, I will push this to epel repo in
next few days.

I had written earlier  about the availability of Xfce 4.12 packages
in EPEL testing repositories. This is a reminder for the same.
Link to update -
Some notes from  are worth repeating here -
- libxfce4ui obsoletes libxfcegui4
(plugins using libxfcegui4 were never built for EL-7)
- xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin obsoletes xfce4-mixer and xfce4-volumed
(xfce4-volumed is not even in the repos)
- xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin uses pavucontrol as sound mixer which is
unavailable in EL-7 at the moment.
Additionally, if you have any xfce plugin installed that is not from
EPEL repo, it is likely that the plugin will conflict with newer
libraries provided by the update. This would need to resolved manually.
