The first and perhaps only point release for Phoronix Test Suite 2.6 "Lyngen" is now available. This 2.6.1 release, which is coming about two weeks after the availability of Phoronix Test Suite 2.6.0, largely brings bug-fixes but it also presents support for anonymously reporting installed software/hardware.

Fixes in the 2.6.1 Lyngen release include external dependencies support on MeeGo, merging test results from Phoronix Global IDs, system sensor monitoring adjustments, and misaligned graphs/charts, among a few other small glitches. The Unigine test profiles have also been updated against their latest Sanctuary, Tropics, and Heaven updates.

The Phoronix Test Suite 2.6.1 release can be downloaded at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. Those of you tracking Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" can already obtain Phoronix Test Suite 2.6.1 from the Maverick repository.
