The first (and only planned) point release to Phoronix Test Suite 3.2-Grimstad is now available. This release just incorporates a couple of small changes compared to the official 3.2 release two weeks ago.

This release namely addresses:

- Watts Up Pro USB power meter support. The power monitoring Phodevi (Phoronix Device Interface library) module in Phoronix Test Suite 3.2.1 introduces support for the Watts Up Pro power meter. This low-cost (~$100 USD) power meter has a USB interface that the Phoronix Test Suite is able to automatically poll -- in a similar manner to the Phodevi battery consumption monitoring -- to plot the Wattage in real-time during the testing process. This newly-added support was used for the recent power articles: The Leading Cause Of The Recent Linux Kernel Power Problems, Radeon Driver Power Management Has Room For Improvement, and Surprising Power Consumption Of Ubuntu 11.04 vs. Windows 7.

- A fix for a potential issue where the web-browser would launch the Phoronix Test Suite Results Viewer when running in batch mode even when auto-launching the web-browser is disabled.

- A fix for launching the web-browser under Microsoft Windows platforms.

- Various tweaks and other small bug-fixes.

Download this latest release at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com. When running your own Linux / Mac OS X / BSD / Solaris / Windows benchmarks, be sure to upload the results to OpenBenchmarking.org when prompted within the Phoronix Test Suite program.

The next major release of the Phoronix Test Suite will be version 3.4 and I'll be announcing those initial details in the coming days. It will be released next quarter.
