It's been just nine days since Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.1 was released, but we have enough changes to now warrant the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.2. There are three new test profiles, two new suites, a man page has been added, and there are also other changes.

The three new test profiles include tremulous, urbanterror, and et for Tremulous, Urban Terror, and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, respectively. These three titles are all id Tech 3 games with Urban Terror and Tremulous being based upon the ioquake3 engine. An ioquake3 test suite (named ioquake3-games) has been added which encompasses these two profiles as well as the OpenArena test profile. The second test suite added is pcqs-processor used as the Phoronix Certification & Qualification Suite for CPU benchmarking.

Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.2 also introduces PTS External Dependencies support for OpenSuSE. The Phoronix Test Suite can now run on OpenSuSE (tested against a clean DVD install of OpenSuSE 11.0) and is able to install the necessary dependencies automatically using YaST.

For those packaging up the Phoronix Test Suite for a Linux distribution, Phoronix Test Suite 1.0.2 adds a phoronix-test-suite man page (found in documentation/man-pages), the GPLv3 header has been added to some source files where previously it was missing, and a text version of the AUTHORS page has been added.

Some of the fixes in this release include improved handling of ATI GPU usage monitoring, updated the build-apache download link for HTTPD, and support for PTS External Dependencies distribution detection for non-LSB software.
