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.

Debian Testing or Unstable gets new Xfce releases really quickly - Mint Xfce is based on Debian Testing now for that reason.

Fedora's XFCE spins are usually pretty nice

Is the Xfce spin any different than running the Gnome based one and then installing Xfce on top of it?

I have done the latter and it feels like a 2nd class citizen. You almost have to log into Gnome, use it for a week or so, get everything setup configuration-wise, then start using Xfce.
