With Iveland Alpha 5 arriving earlier today and more information beginning to be released about OpenBenchmarking.org for its February debut with Phoronix Test Suite 3.0, many have become more curious about what this project entails. Last week I posted a few very small screenshots of OpenBenchmarking.org in its current form. I also have already said OpenBenchmarking.org will become bigger than Phoronix itself, so here are a few statistics right now.

Now available is Phoronix Test Suite 3.0 "Iveland" Alpha 4 and it is one exciting release. As said last week in Bye-Bye Test Profiles & Suites; Hi OpenBenchmarking.org, this release strips out the test profiles and test suites from the Phoronix Test Suite client and moves it into the OpenBenchmarking.org cloud. With initial integration for OpenBenchmarking.org in place for the Phoronix Test Suite, things are now on the verge of becoming a lot more interesting.
14 December 2010 - Prost To Alpha 4! [Cheers]
