I don't know, in general, if the older libraries are "worse", but
there have been discussions recently around some things that require
functionality in more recent versions (ex. GtkBuilder will need 2.16,
lots of accessor functions were added between 2.12 and 2.18 which will
make eventually supporting Gtk3 easier, some new widgets become
available in later versions and so on).
 but I would assume that 4+ years of active development would have
brought lots of bug fixes and optimizations.
