Is it too complicated to achieve? if it's not could you tell me how, please. I have some basic knowledge about gtk and css. Also, is this going to continue happening each time gnome releases a new version?

I'd like to know this too especially the backward compatibility part. – Owais Lone Oct 9 '12 at 10:25
This is an interesting read on the problem: – fitojb Jan 11 '13 at 23:16

For this (with custom WARNINGs !) you need add Gnome Testing PPA and update your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
