Lightworks, the professional non-linear video editing software that has been talked about for years as coming to Linux, is re-opening its Linux Alpha program to solicit additional testing.

We've been waiting nearly three years for Lightworks on Linux but the company behind the professional-grade video editing software, EditShare, hasn't been too open with their Linux alpha/beta program.

Last month we heard there would be a public Linux beta in Q1'2013 while today we're hearing they are re-opening their Linux alpha program for now. EditShare made it known via RedSharkNews they are in need of more people to test out these early builds of their Linux video editor port. "The original Alpha test program has been extremely successful and has moved us forward immensely. We now need more people testing the software at this stage, before we move towards the public Beta phase before the end of Q1 this year."

Hopefully they manage to deliver a public development release this quarter, unlike past delays with the Linux version of Lightworks.
