GTK 3.12 coming to Utopic?

Sebastien, there's been no update here from Marco or anyone else.  It's now
September and we are past the beta freeze for Utopic.  Core GNOME
applications (e.g. gedit, Nautilus, Totem, Epiphany) are still at version
3.10 in Utopic, so I can only assume that they will remain there for the
final release.  This means that Ubuntu will have fallen 1 year behind
GNOME, which will release version 3.14 of these applications in a few weeks.

So I guess the interesting question now is this: what will happen in
Utopic+1?  Will these applications stay at 3.10, move to 3.12 (or 3.14?),
or will something else happen?  Obviously you may not know yet, but we'd be
happy to hear more here once you know anything.  cheers -
