GTK+3 support is in the roadmap for the next stable wxWidgets 3.0. And 
there is development branch with workable code in [1].

I think that the printing support comment is not applicable here, because 
the use of  wxWidgets is pretty limited to the GUI. Anyway, the use of 
libgnomeprint was optional and beginning with version  wxWidgets 2.9, 
you can use the GTK+ printing support [2].
