When was the last time that say, GTK+ got any significant update? When was the last time that important backend components were revised or modified enough to make it a better "GNOME"?

"Revolutionary". Right.

It did get a significant update this time around, it added support for all the GIO / GVFS stuff. Check out http://www.gtk.org and http://live.gnome.org/GTK+

Does it even compare to the Qt 4.x branch? Anyway. It is just me disliking GTK+ altogether then.

Different things.

I agree it's not "revolutionary", but don't the Pulseaudio and GVFS additions count as revised backend components? I don't know if they'll actually make a better GNOME but it seems likely that they will.

We will have to just wait and see then, won't we.
