What is new in Version 2?

New Features

  • An interactive tutorial has been added. This tutorial can be accessed via the settings dialog of Fly-Pie.
  • The settings dialog now remembers the last open settings page. When re-opened, it will show the page which was visible when the settings dialog was closed last time.
  • metadata.json now lists Gnome Shell version 3.36 as opposed to 3.36.2. I believe it’s sufficient to list major and minor version numbers only.
  • The of Fly-Pie now uses dynamic badges to show the lines of code and percentage of comments.
  • A changelog has been added.

Bug Fixes

  • The D-Bus signals OnCancel and OnSelect now return the correct menu ID.
  • flush()is now called on the D-Bus object before unexporting as suggested by andyholmes on
