UBUNTU --
The Ubuntu MATE folks have laid out some of their plans for their next release of this desktop derivative of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu MATE 16.10 hopes to be transitioned to using the GTK3 tool-kit rather than GTK2, improvements to MATE Tweak, and they are working on incorporating Snap packages of the MATE desktop.

Ubuntu MATE 16.10 is currently working on MATE 1.14 built against GTK 3.18. However, there still are some GTK3 shortcomings when building this desktop environment with the newer version of GTK+.
