Xfce 4.14 in Xubuntu 18.04

I'm using Xubuntu 18.04, and I've been using the Xubuntu QA Staging PPA for a few weeks. It has worked great.

With the news about the release of Xfce 4.14, what are the recommended steps now?

Should I disable the PPA once the 4.14 packages enter the main repos? When will it happen? Or are the 4.14 packages only entering the 19.04 repos?

I haven't been able to find this info, I'd appreciate some hints, thanks!

Just had a peek at the PPA and it looks like that packages are slowly (over the past 8 hours) being updated to their 4.14 versions. Staying on the PPA will get you 4.14 eventually.

As to 4.14 being backported to 18.04 or 19.04, that is something that someone from the Xubuntu team will be able to answer. From the PPA:

For questions and bugs with software in this PPA please contact Xubuntu Developers.

...and there is a link there, or ask at the #xfce-dev IRC channel - they are there as well.

Won't be backported to 18.04.
