It was just a few days ago mentioning it was one of the letdowns of 2015 -- and non-linear Linux video editors in general. Fortunately, there's some progress to report already for 2016 with the release of their long-awaited beta.
Installers are being sent to the Kickstarter backers while the source code is online for others to build until other installers become available. The OpenShot 2.0 beta has new context menus, a split clip dialog, a new 'add to timeline' dialog, Windows improvements, new transition work, libopenshot improvements, and much more.
More details on the OpenShot 2.0 Beta can be found via this Kickstarter update.
