Changing Highcharts version to 4.2.2 in the example makes them working correctly, so the issue is likely to be since 5.0.


Looks this.options.softConnector returns undefined and defaults to true in seriesTypes.pie.prototype.connectorPath.


@wojtekmaj - thank you for reporting!

Internal note:
No extra unit test, as we already have pie-datalabels-softconnector-false and pie-datalabels-softconnector-true tests.
