Phoronix Test Suite 5.0-Plavsk ships today with an experimental / tech preview user-interface powered by HTML5 and other new features to bolster the software's capabilities for open-source benchmarking and automated testing.

Chicago, IL -- 12 March, 2014 -- Phoronix Media has announced the immediate availability of the much anticipated Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 (codenamed "Plavsk") release for the de facto standard software for automated, open-source Linux benchmarking software.

Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 ships with a technology preview version of an HTML5 user-interface to complement the command-line interfaces and prior GTK2 GUI. The HTML5 UI can be run either locally or remotely with basic mobile support. The HTML5 UI will be refined with big updates in Phoronix Test Suite 5.x updates over the coming quarters. The command-line interface and other OpenBenchmarking.org / Phoromatic remote options already provided by the Phoronix Test Suite remain the recommended and officially supported interfaces for the Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 milestone.

The Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 update also features improvements for Microsoft Windows 8.1 support, improved software and hardware detection via the Phodevi library, a new "run-random-tests" sub-command for stressing systems with random workloads, an experimental WebSockets interface, bug-fixes, start-up speed optimizations, improved OpenBenchmarking.org integration, and various other fixes and improvements.

Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 is supported on Linux, BSD, Solaris, and OS X operating systems along with limited support for Microsoft Windows. The Phoronix Test Suite is licensed under the GNU GPLv3 and its code can be found via github.com/phoronix-test-suite/. The Phoronix Test Suite client is available for free download from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com.

Enterprise licensing, professional support, project sponsorship, and custom engineering services are available via contacting commercial.phoronix-test-suite.com.
