You said(emphasis mine).Lightworks, the professional non-linear video editor that was open-sourced in mid-2010, is finally about to see its long-awaited Linux release.
That statement is, unless proven otherwise, a huge lie. It was just announced, not open-sourced. As far as I can see, there has never been any source code release. Provide us with a link to the source code or please change your statement on your article.
