This week we've made a few minor upgrades to PHXCMS-6, our in-house content management system that powers Phoronix. A lot of maintenance changes / minor fixes and improvements make up this most recent upgrade. The drop-down menu for jumping between multi-page articles (example) has been moved back down to the bottom of the page, summaries returning back to the pages of Linux distribution screenshots, and some minor navigation improvements. When visiting the Phoronix homepage now, underneath "Reviews From Around The Web" on the left hand side of the Phoronix navigation is now "This Day in Phoronix History" -- this will simply list a couple reviews and news postings that were published on Phoronix on this day in past years (something interesting nevertheless). If you have any feedback on these latest changes or other site features you would like to see, contact us or post a message on the forums.
