"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".
Lightworks for Linux is the second of the three versions of Lightworks that will eventually span Windows, Linux and OS X. There is no further information about Lightworks for OS X at this stage but it is known to be making progress and you can expect announcements about this in due course.
