Yesterday Phoronix Test Suite 0.3.0 was released, but due to a simple naming regression a noticeable bug had wound up in that release. A number of those running the compilation test suite within PTS 0.3.0 had experienced system crashes due to an infinite number of jobs being allowed by GCC -- instead of the number of CPU cores in the system plus one. This regression has been fixed in the git tree so that all test profiles are using the proper number of CPU cores through the NUM_CPU_JOBS environmental variable. As a result, Phoronix Test Suite 0.3.1 is now available.

In addition, Phoronix Test Suite 0.3.1 contains two new test profiles. Stefan Dosinger of CodeWeavers has submitted a Direct3D 9 test profile, which is used for testing WINE's implementation of D3D9 on Linux. A profile for the render_bench benchmark has also been added (with a profile name of render-bench) for testing the performance of the X RENDER extension. In addition, this release does contain a few other fixes as well as cleaning up a number of profiles.
