Outside of the minor CSS fixes and other tweaking we have been doing to Phoronix since implementing the PHXCMS-6 content management system, the integrated search engine has now experienced a makeover. Most notably, when performing a search it will now list relevant GNU/Linux and Solaris news entries in addition to the related articles/reviews. The formatting of the search results has also changed so that it will be listing each result as a link to the actual information along with displaying the date the information originally appeared on Phoronix and its category. Results for the articles and news are limited to the 100 most recent.

Right now the search feature is available using the search box at the top of all Phoronix pages, but an advanced search area should be available shortly. Here are a few example searches with these improvements: Xeon, fglrx, Solaris, SilverStone, NVIDIA, and Ubuntu.

Comments on the new search functionality is welcome and can be directed to the Phoronix Forums.
