Fixes on 0.5.1 Release:
  1. support for slice labels, activated by default, with a selected theme-related look, adding proper navigation and easy discoverability of apps running in GNOME-Pie (slice labels can be disabled under GNOME-Pie appindicator-->Preferences-->top bar's General Settings-->uncheck Display Slice labels)
  2. new subtle wobble effect added when navigating through slices (available on all themes)
  3. improved sub-pies navigation
  4. various minor changes
  5. Fixed wrong preview for minimalistic text theme
  6. Fixed pies opening at opposite screen side when activating a sub pie for the first time
  7. Fixed not-clickable trigger-select-button in preferences menu
