Install Latest OpenShot Video Editor in Ubuntu Lucid, Karmic

OpenShot is already among the most popular video editing application among Ubuntu users. Although there are good alternatives like Kdenlive in Ubuntu, OpenShot video editor is fast catching up. PiTiVi is another contender which recently became one among the default applications for Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx". But in a OpenShot vs PiTiVi battle, I would definitely rate OpenShot a notch higher.
