3.12 is on the gnome3-staging PPA, however it is unsupported now, so probably best to stick with 3.10 if you want to remain on the LTS.

back ports really aren't feasible, it would require updating loads of core libraries, at which point you may as well just use the current stable
release, because that is essentially what you would end up with anyway if one was to backport the GNOME stack!
