No, GTK+ 3.0 is no scheduled, and there is no plan to break API or ABI,
unless you count deprecating chunks of platform API as breaking API. 
I'm pretty sure that the tasks listed on the Project Ridley page are
enough for two or more major releases. If we do a GTK+ 3.0 after
completing Project Ridley, it would be essentially a marketing version
jump to emphasize the "consolidated platform" message.

The scope of the project as a "platform consolidation" project is 
well-defined, and we are less interested in "this API would be nice to
have" comments than in "this API from the existing platform library X
would make sense in GTK+, and I'm interested in working on that" kind of
