Gnome Pie, the new , innovative circular menu reached version 0.4. Two important changes were made to the new version.
Gtk3 port is an important step forward as most distributions have started shipping Gnome 3 or Unity. Hence the application looks more native in Unity and Gnome3.
According to the developer, “When configuring, Gnome-Pie automatically detects whether the GTK3 development files are installed. If so, it will use them..”.
The new settings menu is a major overhaul when compared to its previous version. It was rewritten from scratch. Now, it offers editing the pies with preview; very intuitive.
