Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays to all Phoronix readers. Here's some holiday updates from Phoronix.

First of all, as the editor of Phoronix I hope all Phoronix Media readers and stakeholders have a wonderful holidays, whether it be for Christmas or other celebrations.

Contrary to most web-sites, if you haven't noticed already from the content this weekend, the Phoronix publishing queue will continue on over the holidays so be sure to continue checking back for new coverage. Among the holiday articles that are forthcoming is Linux testing of the AMD A8-3870K Fusion APU, OMAP4 PandaBoard ES benchmarks under Ubuntu, comparative benchmarks to the OLPC XO-1.75, ARM LLVM vs. GCC compiler performance tests, Intel SNA/Glamor acceleration benchmarks (that's tentative -- those are being started tomorrow), and a few other holiday specials.

I'll still be working the normal schedule through the holidays on Phoronix.com and also on some software development updates to the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org. Tonight to OpenBenchmarking.org there is a new search code-path exposed when searching for CPUs/processors, a few usability improvements, and some more work will land in the public version on Sunday and Monday. The enhancements to the Phoronix open-source benchmarking software will be covered in another article in the next few days. Comments, as always, are certainly welcome for any area of the Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org stack.
