There are also a number of BSD-specific improvements. On BSD platforms there is now support for ACPI temperature monitoring, enhanced hardware detection, faster hardware detection on non-Linux platforms, and BSD compatibility with a few more test profiles. A bsd test suite has also been added with some of the key BSD-compatible Phoronix Test Suite tests. With this enhanced BSD support, we will tell you now that some PC-BSD vs. Kubuntu benchmarks will be published at Phoronix next week.
This is the last planned update in the Phoronix Test Suite 1.8 series, unless any new bugs end up appearing or exciting new test profiles get introduced that cannot wait until Phoronix Test Suite 2.0.0 (see details about PTS 2.0 Sandtorg) in late Q3'09.
