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.

Dear Fedora Xfce Live Developers,
Request for Enhancement: please in a virtual keyboard for those
situations where the computer in question has a Blue Tooth keyboard,
such as on an Apple MAC.
"florence" is in the repos and works very well on my sticks
I keep its RPM on a separate stick and have to "click"
on it to install it. I also have it installed on my direct stick.
Florence is very simple and just works without any "drama".
Believe it or not, about one in every three computers I need to
boot off a live or direct install stick are Apples. (You hold
down the "option" [not the flower] key when booting to select
your Live or direct USB.)
Mac keyboards can be described in one word: miserable. Mac
users must not create a lot of text. Seems like
they mainly click a lot. Who knows ...
Chuckle: the older versions of MAC think that the Live USB
is a "Windows" stick. Newer ones call it an "efi" stick.
Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
