Oscar winning video editor ‘Lightworks’ not coming to Linux until ‘late 2011′

Lightworks – the recently open-sourced professional grade video editor – is still on course to come to Linux – but not until next year.

A beta version for Windows 7 will be launched on November 29th, 2010, with Linux and Mac ports to follow in late 2011 according to their monthly newsletter: -

“We are still receiving questions regarding OS support for Lightworks. Currently, Lightworks runs on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit, and Windows XP 32-bit. We are looking to port it to Linux and OSX, but this won’t happen until late 2011.”

Given the calibre of the application I’m more than happy to wait a bit longer.
