We now have the latest GTK+ 3 fork in our test repo, 2.3.1, which replaces 2.1.5 there. The 1.7.5 whiskermenu we ship as default with MX is the last release of the GTK 2 version. If you use a rather old xfce4 style theme that doesn't support GTK+ 3, you probably see style and color oddities if you upgrade to the 2.X series, but our default Arc themes will have no trouble with it.
