Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 (codenamed "Lenvik") was released on Tuesday. Since then we have been quite pleased with the adoption of this new quarterly update and the new features and enhancements that it provides. There are also many new uploads on Phoronix Global, new registrations on Phoromatic, etc.

There will be a Phoronix Test Suite 2.4.1 release that will be made available this month around the same time that PTS Desktop Live 2010.1 "Anzhofen" is released along with the first PTS Netbook Live release. Phoronix Test Suite 2.4.1 brings a few new features to the Phoromatic module and potentially a couple of bug-fixes and minor improvements, but so far we have only received one bug report for a test profile, which has been addressed and is available on Phorogit.

The main focus, however, is turning to Phoronix Test Suite 2.6. This next major update to our automated testing/benchmarking platform will be released in the second quarter of 2010 and, continuing in our naming theme, it's codename is Lyngen. The 2.6 Lyngen release will deliver new test profiles, new features for pts-core, continuing to work on the Microsoft Windows OS testing support, and other underlying improvements to support the features that we intend to introduce with Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 by the end of this year. Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 will likely be released in mid-May.

Stay tuned for more details on our Phoronix Test Suite plans as well as the Anzhofen releases of PTS Desktop Live and PTS Netbook Live. The current 2.4 Lenvik release is available at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com.
