For almost two months now we've been talking about the Phoronix Test Suite with much planning and development going on. The Phoronix Test Suite will be a platform for enabling next-generation Linux benchmarking and is based upon the process we've been using internally for about the past four years, but with greater automation, a standardized profile architecture, and many other features we'll share with the Linux community shortly. A written Phoronix Test Suite specification will come later.

The Phoronix Test Suite is still very much in heavy development, but later this week we'll be opening the floodgates on this GPLv3-based Linux benchmarking software. Currently the Phoronix Test Suite is in a closed testing process, but we look forward to the initial public release at version 0.1.0 this Wednesday or Thursday. Stay tuned to hear all of the exciting details!
