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.

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.
