The second development release of the upcoming Phoronix Test Suite 4.6-Utsira open-source benchmarking platform is now available for Linux, BSD, Solaris, OS X, and Windows operating systems.
Coming one month after the release of Phoronix Test Suite 4.6 Milestone 1 with its many changes for Utsira
is the second development milestone. The changes for this second development release aren't as plentiful as the first milestone but include:
- Improved compiler masking
- Improved support for DragonFlyBSD with various external dependency packaging updates and other changes. This is coming as part of a new round of DragonFlyBSD 3.4
(and other BSD) benchmarking on Phoronix.com. Phoronix Test Suite 4.6 should run very well on recent DragonFlyBSD operating system versions.
- A fix for cpu.freq
(CPU Frequency) real-time reading on Apple OS X.
- Various other minor changes.
The official release of Phoronix Test Suite 4.6 is expected later this month or in early June. The latest release of this open-source and very diverse benchmarking software can be downloaded from Phoronix-Test-Suite.com
