Of course the branch includes Gecko. Without Gecko, Firefox and Thunderbird wouldn't work.

But the latest Gecko improvements you're talking about are not on the branch at the moment. This is because the branch has the goal of stabilizing Firefox and Thunderbird and the latest changes will have to bake on the trunk for a while, before they are deemed stable enough by the devs to be included in the aviary branch.
