That may only be true when considering complete rewrites. Porting an
application from Gtk2 to Gtk3 does not at all require that many changes
that you'd need to do a rewrite. (Basically they took that opportunity
to drop old deprecated APIs[1].)

For instance I don't think gedit lost features, but was instead just
ported to Gtk3.

[1] And then they went and added new deprecations in Gtk3 along the way.
