After many months of hard work and dedication from many great people, I am proud to announce the official release of OpenShot 1.4.3!  This release has more bug fixes, enhancements, and new features than any other release of OpenShot to date!  Please watch our release video and check out the new features:

Before I get into the details of this release, I want to thank all of the wonderful people who have contributed to this release: Andy Finch, Olivier Girard, Yann Morere (for the amazing 3D animations), and everyone who contributed ideas, artwork, code, testing, and translations!  I am always humbled to work with so many talented volunteers from around the world, so thank you!

While there are many open-source video editors to choose from on Linux, none offer the simplicity, powerful & beautiful 3D animations, and community support of OpenShot.  Download Now!

What's Next

So, you are already bored with 1.4.3, and want to know what's next?  Well, here are a few tidbits to keep you well informed on the future of OpenShot.  We will likely have 1 additional (possibly 2) releases in the 1.X series, based on the MLT framework, with many big changes coming to our timeline canvas, to make it compatible with GTK3, and also improve it's usability.  Then, if all goes according to plan, we will have our first release of the OpenShot library, our new video editing back-end, and move OpenShot into the 2.X series.  Stay tuned!
