Hello Vasya, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gtk+3.0 into wily-proposed. The package will build now and be
available at

hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

Bug description:
  I believe, this is because I am using a HiDPI display. Every time I
  take a screenshot, I get a blurry image. This is not what I want when
  making a screenshot. Everywhere else when I make a screenshot, I get a
  100% copy of my screen, pixel-perfect.
