It's in trusty-proposed at the moment

It's not migrating to trusty because it's having issue building on arm64

Yes, we really want the UI consistency/working menus for the LTS. I'm 
not sure about 3.10, I've looked at those and we did a few selected 
updates for components which bring mostly bug fixes and no UI redesign. 
I doubt we are going to take apps using GtkHeaderBar this cycle though, 
those need more integration work.
