Lightworks’ Linux Beta Gets April Release Date

Who said you can't do professional-grade video editing in Linux? Well, you can. Sort of.

The first public beta release of the Linux build of Lightworks is scheduled for April 30th. There is no obscure sign-up forms or limited time-frames to apply this time, just straight-up public availability. Isn't that great news for Linux-lovers who want to get some serious video editing done.

But don't get your hopes too high up. Lightworks does have a habit of dropping release dates and adjusting their schedules if necessary.

However, Lightworks is an awesome product with an awesome end-goal (being open-source) so we can forgive a few slip-ups here and there.
