As you may know, Gnome Pie is a circular application launcher, enabling the users to easily access their favorite apps, which they have added to the pie. For usage information, see this link.
The latest version available is Gnome Pie 0.6.7, which brings a new (currently experimental) clipboard function, that remembers a history of the copied items, permitting you to easily choose from the copied content, like it had multiple buffers. When the clipboard history length achieves maximum, the app discards the older entries to store the new ones.
For now the clipboard feature supports only text, URLs and images.
