The second stable point release to the Phoronix Test Suite 4.8-Sokndal series is now available.

Phoronix Test Suite 4.8 was released earlier this month with an assortment of new features. With Phoronix Test Suite 4.8 also came OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoromatic updates. Available this Friday is the second point release to Sokndal, Phoronix Test Suite 4.8.2.

The Phoronix Test Suite 4.8.2 update is very minor in nature and just takes care of a couple regression fixes concerning OpenBenchmarking.org integration.

The latest release of our cross-platform open-source benchmarking software is available for free download on OS X, Linux, BSD, Solaris, and Windows platforms at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com.

Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 meanwhile is under heavy development (along with always ongoing improvements to OpenBenchmarking.org and Phoromatic) with more information becoming public in the weeks ahead.

If your organization is interested in licensing Phoromatic or OpenBenchmarking.org for private corporate purposes, are in need of any custom engineering services, custom test development, or would like to sponsor any part of the public open-source test suite software, please contact us.
