Phoronix Test Suite 5.2 is being prepared for release next week Thursday, 5 June, in celebration of Phoronix.com turning ten years old and it being six years since the Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 public debut.
Phoronix Test Suite 5.2 Milestone 4 is coming just one week after the last Khanino milestone but is packing a fair amount of changes:
- There's many graphing improvements. In particular, box plot charts are used in some circumstances for better visualizing the test data. The result overview graph has also been improved and various other graphing improvements.
- The new Phoromatic code built into the Phoronix Test Suite code-base is getting into good shape for its premiere in the 5.2 release as an early tech preview / beta product. Read more in PTS 5.2 M2: Build A New Test Farm In Minutes and a preview of the next-gen interface.
- A new auto-sort-result-file sub-command.
- Various other minor improvements.
The latest release of our open-source, cross-platform automated benchmarking software can be found at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. Any last minute patches, feedback, etc are welcome for ensuring 5.2-Khanino is in great shape. Commercial support is available and the Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking code is hosted on GitHub.
