The announced version for 29th November release has been delayed because they're "not yet fully satisfied with the stability of this version".

Here's an on line video for FCP people who might be considering a change when the mac version of Lightworks comes out.

Can someone tell me what´s the big thing is, that would make Lightworks so superior?
When I look at the specs and features, I can´t see nothing that blows me away.

Having had a minor play with Lightworks, it seems to be the flexibility in how you organise large amounts of material, how you personally want to use this material and do your edit. You can have a number of edits available to you at the same time, each on their own timeline. It's pretty different to the other NLEs, which can put people off.
Speaking to an editor who used to own Lightworks, it's not the specs & feature, which are basically the same for most NLE's, but how it solved many of the annoying issues that many of the other NLE's still have.
The final version will have more features than the old Lightworks, which is very much a story telling NLE, they seem to be making it more plug in friendly.

At the moment, it doesn't seem to be set up for someone doing videos with lots of visual effects, but again I wouldn't want to use my Sony Vegas to cut a feature film.

One main difference is the Console, which many people won't be using because of the cost, but Editshare is opening up other interface options for Lightworks.
Rather dated sounding video on the Lightworks Console:

Just saw that interview and instantly thought, have they never used Premiere?
I'm not sure about Premiere, but here are some comparisons to Avid.
The sync issue on AVID is one that an editor friend of mine mentions.

The Lightworks people seem to be putting a lot of work in trying to ensure that their new web site and the system for downloading and licensing is fully functional and up to the possible demand.
