Today, I present you a new version of Gnome-Pie! There are some bug fixes, a new settings menu layout and a tiny new feature included!
New setttings menu layout
Since the introduction of pie shapes the settings menu has been somewhat cluttered. It has been hard to discover pie shape options behind the key binding button of each pie. The new layout merges the key binding dialog and the rename dialog into one window which contains all pie settings.
Here is a before-after-comparison of the old and the new layout. You will spot some differences!
CSD and new Tab style
This release also features the implementation of Client Side Decorations with the Gtk.HeaderBar and the new Gtk.StackSwitcher. Both are optional and disabled by default because some Gtk-themes do not support them well. You have to start Gnome-Pie from command line to use these new features!
To use the new HeaderBar:
To use the new StackSwitcher:
But keep in mind that they will look ugly for some systems, especially with Ubuntu’s Unity. Here are some screen shots of other themes using the fall-back layout without CSD or StackSwitchers.
