The third alpha release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 "Bardu" is now available for those interested in benchmarking their Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris, and Mac OS X systems. It's been just two weeks since Bardu Alpha 2, but there's a fair amount of changes within this new development release. First and foremost, there are some new statistical features within pts-core for providing statistical significance in benchmark results (read that article for more details). Additionally, there is now HTTP proxy support built into the Phoronix Test Suite for those wishing to use Phoronix Global but require the use of a proxy. To setup the proxy support for the Phoronix Test Suite, run phoronix-test-suite network-setup.

Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 Alpha 3 also carries better support for the FreeBSD 8.0 operating system (hence our FreeBSD 8 vs. Ubuntu 9.10 benchmarks), a few GTK2 GUI fixes, updates to the PTS user-module architecture, and improved hardware detection on OpenSolaris SPARC-based systems.

When it comes to test profiles, Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 Alpha 3 brings the hpcc test profile for the High Performance Computing Challenge benchmark. There are also fixes and updates to other test profiles.
