The New Phoronix Site Is Launching Soon
Written by Michael Larabel in Phoronix on 23 June 2013 at 07:29 PM EDT. 30 Comments
The overhauled Phoronix site is on track for making its debut in July.

In just a few weeks, a long-awaited upgrade to the Phoronix site will premiere. After moving to our new server infrastructure last week, the rollout of PHXCMS8 -- a major upgrade to our in-house content management system -- is on track and development is almost complete. More noticeable to end-users will be the all-new web-site, thanks to the graphics work by the German Phoronix reader Elias Steurer.

Two weeks ago I showed off some of the new Phoronix design while in the past week most of the integration with PHXCMS8 and HTML/CSS work has happened. As of this weekend, PHXCMS8 is running and embedded below are a few screenshots of the site in its current development form.

The site layout remains under development, but any feedback is greatly appreciated and can be directed to the forums or via Twitter where I have been providing real-time reports and screenshots.

On a semi-related note, it looks like on 2 July will be the next Phoronix meet-up in New York City. The meet-up will be in Manhattan but the specific time and location is to be determined. Please express your interest and any suggestions via the forums, contact me, or Twitter.
