Just a week ago Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 went into beta, but now the second (and potentially last) beta release is available. Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 "Lenvik" brings a multitude of new features that are discussed in various Phoronix articles -- image quality comparison capabilities, support for mobile device/phone platforms, initial Windows support, and literally many other advancements to this benchmarking framework. However, I have decided to hold off on pushing a bulk of the Microsoft Windows 7 support until the Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 cycle at this point in time 2.4 Lenvik is in a rather clean and optimal state so I am pressed to release this major update a bit early.

Phoronix Test Suite 2.4 Beta 2 delivers on various fixes and clean-ups to pts-core, better support for OpenBSD and other *BSD improvements, system fan speed monitoring, graphing improvements, and other changes. Download our GPLv3 benchmarking software at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. Please provide us with feedback in our forum, mailing list, or directly. If all goes well, Phoronix Test Suite 2.4.0 "Lenvik" will be officially released in the first week of February.
