OpenShot, one of the popular and promising non-linear open-source video editing projects, is out today with their first major release in nearly a half-year. OpenShot 1.2.2 is this new release and it brings a number of new features and other bug-fixes as it attempts to close the gap between open and closed-source video editors.

Among the advertised features for this new OpenShot release is improved stability, 3D animated titles (powered by Blender), cursor transitions, new audio/video effects, time-line improvements, an improved theme engine, and new DVD export, among other changes.

A very detailed release announcement for OpenShot 1.2.2 that goes over all of the new features and also provides a demo video can be found at OpenShot.org.

In similar news, the PiTiVi video editing application now has support for video effects living within its mainline code-base. This work was done as part of a Google Summer of Code initiative. This milestone is talked about in this blog post.
