With the impending release of Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) just around the corner, I am proud to announce that OpenShot 1.1.3 has been accepted by Ubuntu and is ready to install from the Software Center!  Also, the MLT framework (the video editing library used by OpenShot and Kdenlive) has been updated to it's newest version (0.5.4).

This is the most stable version of OpenShot ever created, so hopefully everyone will enjoy using it!

Although I have not published many posts recently, I have been working hard to improve OpenShot.  Three different versions of OpenShot have been released in the past 45 days (version 1.1.1, 1.1.2, and 1.1.3).  All of these versions have been uploaded to both Debian and Ubuntu.

We have already started work planning OpenShot 1.2, and will soon be discussing features with you... the community, and hopefully we'll be able to incorporate many of the feature requests that have been suggested.  I will soon be publishing a survey for everyone, to collect feedback on likes, dislikes, wants, needs, etc...  So, stay tuned for that post.

If you would like to help the OpenShot project, please feel free to use the banner image above on your own website to help promote us.  The bigger we can grow our user base, the more contributors we will attract, and thus... the better we can make this project!


After 8 months of waiting, OpenShot has finally been officially registered as a US Trademark! This is great news, as it protects the name and branding of OpenShot, and ensures we won't have to choose a new name at some point.

When I first announced the name "OpenShot" on this website, I was soon contacted by a company who claimed I had "lifted" their name. This began an 8 month battle to trademark the name. So, you see, this is a big moment for me, as it means the name is finally safe, and I can return my focus on the things that really matter, like the next version of OpenShot!
