Hey everyone!

A new bugfix release of xfdesktop is now out [1].  We're ready to include
it for wily, but we'd like to get some additional testing before we do so.
The new release has been uploaded the the Xubuntu Staging PPA [2] and can
be installed in Xubuntu 15.10 "Wily Werewolf".

Add the PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xubuntu-staging
sudo apt-get update

Upgrade xfdesktop:
sudo apt-get install xfdesktop4

Then restart your session and take it for a spin.  Since this release fixes
several issues with wallpapers (preview generation, rotation), be sure to
try changing your desktop wallpaper, maybe to a previous Xubuntu release...

Let us know if you find any significant issues.  Thanks!

Sean Davis (bluesabre)
Xubuntu Technical Lead
