If you look @ the official site here:

http://www.openshotvideo.com/

you'll notice there hasn't been any update since 2.5 months, even though the main developer, Jonathan Thomas, talks about writing more soon...
Also, his successful Kickstarter page is @ the same state & hasn't been updated, either:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...nd-linux/posts

Finally, if you look @ the respective Ohloh page, you'll notice that there is "very low activity":

with the last commit (incidentally by Jonathan Thomas himself) made on Halloween:

Michael, could you please make a news item out of this, so there is public awareness created, just like You did with Kdenlive?

Thanks in advance!
