GTK+ The Gtk+ team is working on a roadmap to structure the development process of the Gtk+ 3.0 release and to open up the involved decision making progress. The first draft has been sent to the devel mailing list, and is now open for debate. Coincidentally, the draft roadmap also provides a nice overview of the features and changes planned for Gtk+ 3.0.

And when they will have implemented all their plans, what will be the reason to choose GTK over Qt for a new project?

I think that if you are addicted on clean interfaces and good documentation: Qt makes the lead at any time, mostly if you like C++ and QMake/CMake build system.

If you will like anyway to paint widgets in Cairo and not in QPainter, which is standard on multiple platforms naturally, you will want to write code from .Net (Mono) or Python, Gtk will remain the main reason to keep it. And if you like Vala language, which resemble C#, and you will wait 1 year to be fixed and have pretty stable IDEs for it, you will have a higher level platform to work with and will reduce a lot your production time also.

So depends on your needs, support and expectancy, Gtk may be or not the best platform to you (combined with a higher level language, not necesarily C or wrapped MM C++)
