Phoronix Test Suite 1.6.0 "Tydal" Beta 2

As what will likely be the last development release in the 1.6 "Tydal" series, Beta 2 has now been made available. Among the changes to pts-core are a few hardware and software detection improvements, test installation logs are now archived within the test installation directory, an install-all-dependencies option has been added, and there is now support for reading the CPU usage of individual processing cores (and is also supported through the system_monitor module).

Retail PC Linux Testing & Benchmarking

It's approaching five years since Phoronix was conceived and in that time we have published 1,300 featured articles (many of them can be found here) and thousands of news postings that relate to using computer hardware -- both desktop and server related -- on Linux. A vast majority of these articles have been about computer components like motherboards, graphics cards, and processors, but very few have been about retail PCs that consumers can easily buy in stores or on the Internet. That, however, may change.

2008 Linux Graphics Survey Launches

Last year we hosted our first annual Linux Graphics Survey as really the only study that's been done to get a better understanding what the Linux community is using in their computers to fulfill their graphics needs, what their key interests are, and where they are looking for improvements. We're hosting this survey once again so we ask that between now and December 15 you take a few minutes to vote in the 2008 Linux graphics survey.

Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.0 "Orkdal" Beta 1

Following a series of three alpha releases in the Orkdal series, I am pleased to announced the release of the first beta release for Phoronix Test Suite 1.4. There are quite a few changes between Orkdal Alpha 3 and Orkdal Beta 1, but any fallout will be minimal. There is still over a month until Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 will be officially released, but pts-core appears to be in great shape as it stands today. Beta 1 consists of improved hardware detection, support for OpenSolaris 2008.11, enhanced test management, and plenty of other changes.
