More progress picked up on GTK+ itself at the end of last October. I've started trying to actually build it native myself in the last few weeks, but hit some issues with Pango. Once I get such things cleared, I'll be able to push needed fixes upstream with GTK+ itself.
Personally I think it's looking good that native OSX GTK might wind up giving us fewer total bugs than we see with the recent combinations of X11 and OSX.
