Cinelerra, one of the popular open-source video editors and compositors for Linux, hadn't seen an official update since July of 2012 but pushed this week was a source package for their next major release.
A few days ago I noticed that a Cinelerra source package for the next major release, v4.5, was uploaded to the project's SourceForge page
. No release notes were available and I waited to see if an official announcement would occur or any activity on their mailing list, but as of this weekend no official announcement has come forward.
The project itself seems to be in a bit of dire shape right now and Cinelerra.org is transferring ownership
and overall there hasn't been too much to report on out of this decade-old project formerly known as Broadcast 2000 by Heroine Virtual.
When we get any more information on Cinelerra 4.5 we'll be sure to update.
