Guess what! Not only has OpenShot been accepted into Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) and will soon be a 1 click install, it will be version 1.1 of OpenShot! This is a far better version than 1.0, and because many users will not bother upgrading OpenShot to future versions, it is great to have this version accepted.

We are listed in the Software Center in the "Sound & Video" department. You can drill into the "Sound & Video" department, or simply search for "openshot". It's easy to find, and just as easy to install.

We have also updated our branding and software description for the Software Center. We are trying to appeal to the non-technical users as well as the ones who already know what video editing is. =)

This has been a goal of mine since I started the project. Ubuntu was the first distro I fell in love with, and I am super excited to be accepted into the Ubuntu universe. This will be the easiest way for most people to install OpenShot.

On a somewhat related note, we have also found a Sponsor for Debian, and are currently waiting to be approved for Debian. In the next 1 to 2 weeks, I expect OpenShot 1.1 will also be available in Debian Unstable. I will let everyone know once this has happened! We have lots of Debian users, and because so many distros are based off of Debian, it will be great to be in their repository also.
