OpenShotOMG! Ubuntu!’s favourite video editor for Linux – released a new version today.

Version 1.1 brings with it a buffet of new features, speed improvements and general all round greatness that we’ve come to expect from the fast-paced development of the OpenShot team.

Amongst those new features are: –

  • Undo/Redo support
  • History pane
  • Dynamic tiling (Seriously, ’tis awesome)
  • A bunch of new effects including ‘cartoon’ and ‘edge glow’
  • Easy fade in/out of clips and audio

As always, OpenShot developer Jonothan Thomas has made a new video showing off some of these improvements.
