Xfce "Today, after 1 year and 4 months of work, we are pleased to announce the release of the Xfce desktop 4.10, a new stable version that supersedes Xfce 4.8. In the 4.10 cycle we mainly focused on polishing the desktop and improving the user experience in various ways." A detailed overview of the changes compared to Xfce 4.8 and Xfce 4.10 preview releases can be found in the ChangeLogs. Xfce 4.10 will make its way to your distribution of choice, but of course, you can always download it and build it yourself.

You can always run PCManFM under Xfce, you're not "stuck" with Thunar. Some of my favorite desktop setups in the past have mixed components from different projects with little to no issues. I tend to use Thunar as my file manager when I build an E17 desktop, for example.

But you're right, as fast and stable as Xfce is even on older hardware, LXDE is even faster. If you don't need the extra features Xfce has over LXDE, you'll probably find the latter to be a better fit. Personally, I prefer Xfce by a wide margin, but LXDE is a great desktop in its own right.
