Phoronix RSS Reminder

This is a reminder that if you haven't yet subscribed to our RSS feeds, it is a perfect time to do so. Next week we will be covering Sun Microsystems' JavaOne 2007 conference live from San Francisco, California. There should be quite a bit of news coming out on Java (well, that's a given), Solaris, open-source software, and technology in general. We will be covering the conference all week and will be pushing out news as it happens in our Phoronix news feed and then nightly reports back in our articles feed. You can subscribe to both of our RSS feeds on the Phoronix about page. You can also find and share more information in our Linux and Solaris forums.

Phoronix Search Functionality Update

Outside of the minor CSS fixes and other tweaking we have been doing to Phoronix since implementing the PHXCMS-6 content management system, the integrated search engine has now experienced a makeover. Most notably, when performing a search it will now list relevant GNU/Linux and Solaris news entries in addition to the related articles/reviews. The formatting of the search results has also changed so that it will be listing each result as a link to the actual information along with displaying the date the information originally appeared on Phoronix and its category. Results for the articles and news are limited to the 100 most recent.

The Return of Redblog

After a short break, the Phoronix Redblog is back and ready to roll! This comeback is due to the amount of messages received asking for the blog's return and the overwhelming help users continue to request. It will no longer be updated on a daily basis, but new blog entries will come along when there is information worth passing along. As this blog continues, I will continue to focus on areas for ATI's fglrx department to improve upon, successes/failures I encounter with my day-to-day usage of ATI's Linux drivers, etc...

Phoronix Site Upgrade

The first set of updates to the Phoronix Content Management System v5 (PHXCMS5) have been merged with our live server. Most of these improvements are under the hood, but there are a few visible changes. A majority of the CSS has been re-written for improved browser compatibility, load-time/efficiency, and the basis for some future expansions. The site should appear correctly in all major browsers. If you notice any browsing problems please report them.

Site Suggestions

Over the next few months Phoronix.com will be under going a slight face lift as we begin work on the next major revision of the Phoronix CMS (PHXCMS) system. Most of the changes will be under the hood, but there will be some code cleanup and minor changes to the interface. A few new site features are also in the works. We are in the process of polling our readers to see what areas they would like improved when it comes to the site layout and features. A thread has been setup over at the Phoronix Forums so that you may post your comments and suggestions.

Announcing Phoronix Redblog

In an effort to get a better understanding for the current state of ATI's proprietary fglrx Linux display drivers, and to provide the alternative OS community with more facts as well as in-house comments, Phoronix has today announced the creation of redblog.phoronix.com. This blog will focus on the Phoronix Editor-In-Chief, Michael Larabel, personally evaluating ATI's current Linux drivers for 50-days -- simply think of it as an ATI Linux review for an extended amount of time. While over a year ago the quality of the red's Linux display drivers could be refuted, they certainly have improved by near light-years when it comes to their installation strategy, performance, bug issues, and variety of cards supported -- among other areas. But how well does this ATI experience come first hand? Are gamers and computer enthusiasts alike now ready to accept ATI's current Linux display drivers for prime-time action? For those GNU/Linux users with proprietary display drivers, you already know what all the fuss is about but for the rest the preface and introduction for this blog can be read here and here respectively. This blog can be found at redblog.phoronix.com, and be sure to tune into its RSS feed for the latest commentary.

Phoronix Definition

For all of the countless emails received from users asking what Phoronix means, and all of the other similar inquiries, here it is... The word Phoronix was derived by Michael Larabel back in 2004 when he had found phoronix.com. Phoronix is a combination of phoro- and *NIX. Phoro- means movement or direction, while *NIX of course is referred to as modern-day UNIX-like systems... With that, Phoronix means UNIX/Linux movement. Just a tid-bit of knowledge for today.

We expect to have the issue under control within the next couple of hours, and all operations should return to normal shortly. Sorry for any inconvenience and be sure to check back soon.
