Xfce 4.14 Maintenance and 4.15 Updates

Xfce 4.14 Maintenance

As promised we’re trying to be much better at doing maintenance releases for Xfce 4.14. In part, we had a hard time doing maintenance for Xfce 4.12 because with all the porting work it was hard to focus on fixing Gtk+2 bugs and many bugreports/fixes didn’t apply to both 4.12 and 4.14.
This has now changed and as many bugs apply to both Xfce 4.14 and the current 4.15 development versions we can much more easily backport fixes. Consequently we have already done quite a few maintenance releases so far and this week a few more followed, fixing bugs and featuring improved translations:

xfce4-panel 4.14.3 (4.14.2 had a bad release build)
xfce4-session 4.14.1
xfce4-settings 4.14.2
xfdesktop 4.14.2
Folow the link below for 4.15 (development model) information, screenshots and technical background.

libxfce4ui has been updated to version 4.15.1.
I'm guessing that is a development release?
https://git.xfce.org/xfce/libxfce4ui...xfce4ui-4.15.1

libxfce4util-4.15.0 is apparently just a version number bump, with a couple of translation updates.
https://git.xfce.org/xfce/libxfce4ut...ce4util-4.15.0

There has been quite a bit of activity in recent days as you can see here,
https://git.xfce.org/

Premiss, I'm a big fun of Fluxbox; so I think that XFCE beat it. If I spend time do config manually Flux and search
different programs like volumeicon ecc... in order to obtain the same of XFCE, just as well to use XFCE.
There is only thinks that XFCE must to be improved...GTK themes. If I use others themes, XFCE has some problems
to nm-applet menu and/or volume control background.
Consider that XFCE work so fine, I think that XFCE team must be focus attention to the look.

Only few work really as the ones shipped with XFCE

The light ones are easier to find and come by

The dark ones always leave me short sleeved - in either Thunar or in the Browser - somehow the light text ends up in an light box?

I've had good luck with these two "dark" themes and Xfce-4.12.

https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1279950/

https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1223551/

They are suppose to be GTK3 themes, but do not work as well with Xfce-4.14.

Speaking of Xfce themes in Slackware, what happened to all the Xfce window manager themes that used to be in Slackware by default? Prior to Xfce 4.12 and 4.14 (in current), there used to be many more options for Xfce themes. Now there's what, maybe half a dozen? I distinctly remember there being MANY MORE options, such as in this vanilla Arch/Xfce installation:
