Start the timer! I'm going to type real fast so I fit this into 60 seconds. =) Over the past 30 days we have made a ton of progress on OpenShot Video Editor! Even though I haven't had time to post a ton of blog updates, we have been busy fixing bugs, adding features, answering questions, and generally having fun!

So, here is a quick rundown of what's been happening:

  • Lots of bug fixes
  • Lots of bug and question management (Thanks to Helen!)
  • Good progress on documentation (Thanks Helen!)
  • Complete re-structuring of folders to ease packaging (Thanks to TJ!)
  • Integration of distutils (i.e. the preferred way of installing a Python program) (Thanks to TJ!)
  • Good progress on implementing the "Simple" Video Export interface (Thanks to Andy!)
  • Good progress on implementing Effects
  • Good progress towards having OpenShot in a PPA, which will be great! (Thanks to TJ!)
  • We now have 29 translations, which is just awesome! The more languages, the more users can enjoy OpenShot! (Thanks to all the translators!) Here is a sample:

We have more contributors than ever before! We have more web traffic than ever before! I get more emails than I would ever wish on anyone. =) Things are moving faster than ever before!

Please continue to talk about OpenShot. It's really helping us raise awareness and spread the word about our project. As soon as we have a PPA ready for testing, I'll post an update. Thanks!

Beep, beep, beep... Just under 60 seconds.
