LL needs to remain stable, and "new" updates to its components are at the discretion of its developers.
Why change something when it works just fine as it is. Updates and fixes are a different subject all together.
If i wanted bleeding edge i would be using a Debian testing/unstable distro, or any of the others available. XFCE may be improved, but how it interfaces with the OS/Kernel is a whole different bag of chips.

To quote- "XFCE 4.12 is like a freshly-baked dessert - one that needs to cool a little in the breeze before it's sliced and served."
best analogy I've heard to date in respect to Linux.

This is a good remark. I'm pointing out an issue that would be nice if it where fixed int the current LL 2.2 as well as in the next one.

Since in the current and next one light-locker seems to be installed. I found and am experiencing this bug : Invisible cursor after resume from suspend https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1297144

This needs to be adressed for sure. Hope someone has time for it.

Did you open a thread about this issue mate !

Folks, I'd like to reiterate, if this turns into a support thread for installing 4.12 on our stable LL, there will be NO support.

Hello!

I'm with you, Rok.

If I were going to play with 4.12, I'd do it in Xubuntu itself - in a VM, of course. I'd also keep a close watch their support forums for new issues that are discovered by the Xubuntu community...

Just another XFCE 4.12 for you VM users to play with.

My druthers is instead of VM. I like to run a persistent flash drive. Like I did with Linux-Lite first before I installed it 2 different laptop hard drives.
It cuts out hardware compatibility time/issues that I might run into later after a install.
Something a VM cannot do. But I am weird like that.
Running VM has always been like running Gnu/Linux with a condom for me.   :)

Below quote is from Exton

I have installed Nvidia’s proprietary graphic driver 340.65. All packages have been updated to the latest version as of Mars 29, 2015.

I went ahead with a MX-14.4 install with XFCE 4.12 on my IBM M57 Tower. I made it fugly on purpose though. Because, I am weird like that.
