For those looking to run any sort of automated benchmarks on Linux, Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, BSD, or even Windows 7 x64, the beta 2 release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 "Lygen" has been released this morning.

This newest release is coming just over a week since the first beta, but there's a good amount of changes within this release that will be finalized by month's end. There are various fixes to pts-core, continued improvements on the new PTS Results Viewer interface, individualized result tables, chart improvements, and other enhancements.

When it comes to test profiles for the Phoronix Test Suite there is a network-loopback test profile that's a benchmark of the Ethernet loopback interface on Linux, a test profile for phpbench, IOzone test profile compatibility on Windows (see today's EXT4 vs. NTFS benchmarks), and other profile tweaks.

With the results viewer for the Phoronix Test Suite, there are now individualized tables (in addition to the "overview table" that has long been available) to accompany each graph that shows the standard deviation, the difference(s) between other test runs, and other features as shown in the tables in our recent Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu article.
