The third -- and potentially final -- beta release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 "Lyngen" is now available. This release contains various fixes, more updates to the new PTS Results Viewer, graphing improvements, a new Phodevi sensor architecture, a Phodevi sensor that serves as a GPU fence counter, and a couple of other changes. There's also random bug-fixes.

The Phoronix Test Suite can be downloaded at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 final will be out before the end of the month. Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 possesses many new features and improvements so we would encourage everyone using our software for benchmarking, automated testing, performance profiling, or anything else to try out this latest development release and submit any last-minute feedback.
