Comment On This Article

Over the last several months we at Phoronix have been working on a massive revision to the site. Well, today's the day, and everything should be set to roll! In addition to an entirely revamped layout, much of the code-base for our core content management system and back-end has been cleaned up, along with the initial formation for some new site features which we hope to roll out in the very near future. The color scheme has also been revamped, while keeping the same overall effect, as well as several other graphical improvements. As far as the browser compatibility goes, the site has been thoroughly tested under Mozilla Firefox v1.0.7/v1.5.0 as well as Epiphany and Konqueror. Under Macintosh OS X, we used Safari and for Windows there are several versions of Opera (including v9.0 Tech Preview 2) and Internet Explorer. We can report at this time that all of the bugs should be worked out of the interface except for a small glitch (left adjustment) in Internet Explorer v6.0 and Opera v8.2 also experiences a font adjustment flaw in some configurations. The site configuration is also optimized for users running at 1280 x 1024. However, this latest revision also corrects several long-standing bugs with the previous site when running at higher resolutions. As of today, all Phoronix.com pages should be synced up with the new site layout, and every page should be in working order. Some areas of the site, however, will experience a few additional tweaks and modifications throughout the end of the week. However, we also invite feedback from our readers as well as any display problems you may have experienced when viewing the website (contact page). For reference here is the intended interface for this new layout.
