No, GTK+ 2.12 is a stable (in fact, even a dead) branch at this point,
that we are not going to open up for new API at this point. The idea
of stable branches in GTK+ is that you can rely on the fact that if it
built against 2.x.y, it will also build and work against 2.x.z with z
< y.

Nevermind that enterprise distros are unlikely to follow such an
unprecedented stability-breaking late release anyway...
