For those out there using the Phoronix Test Suite, the first (and likely only) point release for the 2.4 Lenvik release is now available. The 2.4.1 release incorporates a variety of bug-fixes and other work that was back-ported to Lenvik over the past two weeks.

Besides fixes, some of the other work includes many new updates to the Phoromatic client module and graphing improvements.

The latest release can be downloaded here for Linux, OpenSolaris, *BSD, and Mac OS X systems. Alternatively, Phoronix Test Suite 2.4.1 can already be found in the Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid repository and should be updated within other distribution repositories shortly.

The next major release is Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 and it's codenamed Lyngen and will be released in Q2'2010.
