we'd like to upload Xfce 4.12 to unstable. It currently sits in
experimental since few weeks, and seems to work just fine.

There's a soname transition (libxfce4util6 to libxfce4util7) so it'll
need some binNMUs, and as always the xfce4-panel plugins need to be
rebuilt against the new panel to get the correct dependencies/conflicts.
This time plugins built against xfce4-panel 4.10 should work with
xfce4-panel 4.12, but we don't know about the future so we keep the
shlibs like this for now.

The ben file generated by reportbug was wrong because the xfce4-panel
package is not renamed and we need to check the version, so I edited it
manually following the Xfce 4.10 ben file but it might still be wrong.

Thanks in advance and congrats for the Jessie release!

Ben file:

title = "xfce 4.12";
is_affected = .depends ~ "libxfce4util6" | .build-depends ~ "xfce4-panel-dev" | .depends ~ "libxfce4util7";
is_good = .depends ~ "libxfce4util7" | .depends ~ "xfce4-panel (<< 4.11)";
is_bad = .depends ~ "libxfce4util6" | .depends ~ "xfce4-panel (>= 4.11)";
