Install Gnome-Pie 0.5.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin/Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric/11.04 Natty/10.10 Maverick/Linux Mint 13/12/11

Gnome-Pie is a circular application launcher for Linux. It is made of several pies, each consisting of multiple slices. The user presses a key stroke which opens the desired pie. By activating one of its slices, applications may be launched, key presses may be simulated or files can be opened.

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

What's new in Gnome Pie 0.3 Version?
There are many new features in Gnome-Pie which want to be released! Again a lot has been done in the last three weeks. Read on to see what changed.
  • Mouse bindings: The most requested feature ever: Pies can now be bound to any button of your mouse!
  • Turbo bindings: For each Pie it’s now possible to select whether it should automatically close when it’s hotkey is released. The global turbo mode does not exist anymore.
  • Delayed bindings: You can make any Pie being triggered delayed. This is very useful: So you can even bind Pies to, for example, your right mouse button. When you press it normally, a common right click will be executed, if you hold it down for a moment, the pie will open. Or you can assign Pies to common key strokes like Ctrl-Z. The hotkey will be still usable.
  • Window management: There is a brand new slice group which acts like Alt-Tab: It displays all your opened windows!
  • Translations: Gnome-Pie has been translated to Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and German. Thanks a lot to Gr3yFox and magnunleno!
  • New theme: I created a new theme which reminds of the Elementary OS!
  • Memory management: Gnome-Pie uses much less memory now! A typical session should use around 15 MB.
  • Bug fixes: And, of course, many minor bugs have been fixed. For example settings are now saved when the user quits the configuration dialog via the title bar close button as well. And it’s not possible anymore to assign the same hotkey twice.
  • Precise packages: For early adopters: The PPA for Ubuntu has been updated with packages for Ubuntu 12.04!
